  2. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...

  3. New Integrated Total Design of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) Propulsion System Architecture for Higher Efficiency and Low Noise

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N18AT012

    In this proposal, a meta model-based scaling law will be used to represent each system component. A components meta model-based scaling law describes the tradeoffs between performance metrics for that component or subsystem as a function of its ratings in relation to the system. This greatly reduces the number of degrees of freedom for each component, and at the same time, retains the information ...

  4. Compact Thermal Management System for Laser Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N18AT001

    The use of laser technologies and high-power electronics is rapidly being incorporated into tactical platforms for imaging, target designation, and range finding. Electronic equipment including lasers demand power from a tactical aircraft and produce large amounts of thermal energy as a waste product. Current thermal management technologies will not be sufficient for future aircraft as thermal man ...

  5. Novel Cooling System for Laser Enclosure

    SBC: Photonwares Corporation            Topic: N18AT001

    We propose to utilize a laser 3D printing manufacturing technique to realize an ultra high efficiency micro-channel laser head cooling system with high thermal load capacity in a small volume package. The new approach incorporates key technical innovations that drastically increase the forced water flow interaction surface area and the metal thermal conductivity. The approach enables conformal geo ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Autonomous Navigation for the Hull Bug Ship Hull Grooming System

    SBC: SeaRobotics Corporation            Topic: N18AT020

    The underpinning science and sensing associated with autonomous navigation is advancing on numerous fronts. The navigation capability required for ship hull grooming in a low visibility environment is a natural application of this technology. Enormous benefit will be realized in the public and private sectors of the shipping industry. The economic and environmental impact realized using proactive ...

  8. Control & Optimization of Multiple Illumination Characteristics (COMIC) of A Pulsed Fiber Array Laser System For Active Imaging Through Fog

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N18AT021

    Degraded weather conditions particularly, dense maritime fog, reduces the US Fleet EO/IR systems ability to maintain situational awareness and detect/identify and track targets of interest. It is the Navys goal to develop an active EO/IR imaging system that jointly optimizes illumination source properties and implements advanced image processing to improve performance and operational range of curr ...

  9. Accurate Flow-Through Conductivity Sensor for Autonomous Systems

    SBC: D 2 INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT022

    UUVs have become increasingly important tools in the collection of environmental data. Their unique ability to operate independent of surface vessel conditions allows oceanographic seawater measurements when traditional means is not possible. Historically sensor packages for UUVs have been based on adaptions of ship deployed equipment. Recent development in sensors, such as the Hybrid Flow Through ...

  10. 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 ...
