  1. Advanced Command and Control Architectures for Autonomous Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT030

    We propose to develop an innovative open architecture for the semi-autonomous command and control (C2) of teaming Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The proposed architecture, based upon Toyon’s Decentralized Asset Management system, supports both centralized and decentralized fusion and control autonomy solutions as well as hybrids approaches. Leveraging STANAG-4586, TCP/IP, UPD, Google™ protob ...

  2. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  3. Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT033

    Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...

  4. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Epirus, Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the government’s objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales t ...

  5. Enhanced Sensor Resource Management Utilizing Bayesian Inference

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: N19AT002

    This proposal describes the use of machine learning, data mining and Bayesian inference algorithms for incorporation into a surveillance aircraft cognitive radar system. The need for incorporation of higher-order uncertainty distributions will also be assessed. This will result in enhanced sensor resource management capability for surveillance aircraft radar.

  6. Innovations in Designing Damage Tolerant Rotorcraft Components by Interface Tailoring

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N19AT003

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team member, the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-M), propose to develop printed polymer reinforcement via additive manufacturing to provide patterns at the interlaminar regions in traditional prepreg composites with the goal of improving their interlaminar properties under mixed mode loading. Two key components will be performed under ...

  7. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...

  10. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...
