  1. Epitaxial Technologies for Gallium Oxide Ultra High Voltage Power Electronics

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N16AT023

    High power, high voltage switching via semiconductor materials is attractive from a size, weight, and profile perspective. The Baliga figure of merit for high voltage for Ga2O3 is 3,415 (relative to Si), which suggests this material is well-suited for power device applications. Kyma Technologies proposes to design a deposition system capable of growing monoclinic beta-polytype Ga2O3, and n-type an ...

  2. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N16AT004

    TDA has teamed up with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as its research institution collaborator to address the target STTR topic objective of quantifying the uncertainties in the mechanical behavior of the AM parts. To quantify uncertainties by minimizing both the computational burden and expensive testing and also overcoming the IP concerns, we propose a novel approach with three layered i ...

  3. Methods for Actionable Measures of Absolute Cognitive Workload

    SBC: VR Rehab Inc            Topic: N16AT002

    Cognitive workload is the amount of mental effort an individual must exert to perform a required set of tasks. The proposed methods for actionable measures of absolute cognitive workload will integrate subjective workload ratings together with real-time physiological measures and assessments of mission effectiveness based on carefully designed scenarios. These data will be used as input parameters ...

  4. Microstructure Informatics for Propagating Uncertainty in Material and Processing to Performance Predictions of AM Titanium Parts

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    During AM of metallic alloys, a material exhibits several complex physical phenomena that impact the spatial distribution of heterogeneous material properties within a built component. Subsequent post-processing alters the already heterogeneous location-specific material properties. This project is to develop a novel methodology for linking the time and length scales of the various physical phenom ...

  5. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel Metal Matrix Composites using Nickel functionalized Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) has a potential to significantly reduce the cost and lead time associated with the maintenance and sustainment issues faced by the US Navy. However, current materials such as 17-4 PH Stainless Steel typically achieve half the required mechanical properties when additively manufactured, thus limiting the use of AM in critical parts. Recent advancements in carbon nanotube ...

  7. Nanoporous block polymer separators for high performance and safe Li-ion batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N16AT008

    To meet Navy needs for high performance and safe lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for naval aircraft, ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) and its university collaborator propose to develop and optimize tailor designed nanoporous separators derived from functionalized block copolymers (polyolefins) with low cost precursors. The innovative strategy provides a powerful tool to allow exquisite tuning of perform ...

  9. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Fault Detection, Localization, and Isolation

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT009

    In this phase I we propose to extend our work on MVDC isolation device to include fault detection, and fault localization circuitry. We have previously developed under an SBIR a 6 kVDC, 2000A isolation device that was built and tested in MVDC ship distribution system laboratory at FSU CAPS. In this phase I we propose to use rogowski coils and hall effect probes to detect faults and we propose to a ...

  10. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting Power Cables

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N16AT011

    The Navys Next Generation Integrated Power Systems (NGIPS) for on shore, surface ships, and underwater vehicles will require novel power distribution systems. State of the art prime mover power generation and high power directed weapons require power distribution cables that surpass conventional copper cable capabilities. As such, the Navy has determined that electrical power systems must increase ...
