  1. Solid-state, Conformal Laser Enclosure Cooling System

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N18AT001

    The Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are solid-state devices with no moving parts that provide reliable cooling power compared to traditional cooling systems such as vacuum compressors. However, their relatively high cost and low coefficient of performance (~ 0.5) have relegated them to niche applications such as small-scale portable coolers and, have yet, to be competitive from an efficiency standpo ...

  2. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability-- 18-004

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT002

    The transmission loss (TL) observed by sonar operators can differ significantly from that predicted by Navy models. The long-term objective of the proposed work is to understand why these differences occur and improve the target detection predictive capability of the models. Our approach in Phase I is to analyze bistatic sonar data collected on Navy assets. We will examine both cases with model/da ...

  3. Repurposing Computational Analyses of Tactics for Training Assessments

    SBC: Prevailance, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    Data generated by external sources needs to be consolidated and processed to derive new training scenarios and to recommend new training objectives and measures of performance. The main technical challenges this solution will address are: data from diverse sources must be pre-processed (i.e., validated, cleaned, synchronized) and loaded into a data warehouse; the central data warehouse must have a ...

  4. Low-cost production of ultra-low defect GaN-based power electronics

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: N18AT004

    GaN power semiconductors offer a technological breakthrough for improving the performance of power electronics including power density, conversion efficiency, and reliability of power converters. These are the three most critical requirements for military, aerospace and many commercial applications. In this STTR program, Qrona Technologies will collaborate with the University of Central Florida to ...

  6. Non-Destructive Concrete Interrogator and Strength of Materials Correlator

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N18AT006

    Phase I will determine the feasibility that one-sided measurements of low power, noninvasive, nondestructive microwave energy can be used to determine the strength and condition of concrete along with relevant spatial and statistical information. We will make different types of concrete with variations in constituent ratios as test samples; use ASTM tests to destructively determine true strength; ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing for Naval Aviation Battery Applications

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N18AT008

    Texas Research Austin (TRI-Austin) will partner with the University of Texas, Austin, and will use diverse printing technologies to fabricate the components of selected battery chemistries (Li-ion, Zn-air, Zn-Ag). In the Phase I base period, each battery component will be printed with a technology that has been previously used to deposit the required material (i.e. ADM for metals, SLS for polymers ...

  8. A Hybrid Multifunctional Composite Skin Material by Standard Prepreg Lay-up Process

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: N18AT024

    The objective of this project is to develop a hybrid, multifunctional composite material that improves the thermal and chemical stability, and surface durability of traditional carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites. By using a standard prepreg lay-up process, in which a flexible conductive ceramic thin layer is bonded directly onto the outmost layer of polymer composites to ensure the ...

  9. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...

  10. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N18AT009

    The US Navy operates a vast fleet of combat and support vessels with complex power control systems under the control and decision authority of human operators. Several current resources such as SPY-1D radar and Vertical Launch System (VLS) and future resources such as railgun, AMDR, and high energy laser (HEL) are energy hungry, exceeding current and planned power generation capability when deploy ...
