  2. Advanced Software Tools for Lithium Ion Battery Risk Assessment (LIBRA)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT014

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with the Georgia Tech Center for Innovative Fuel Cell and Battery Technologies, proposes to develop tools for Lithium Ion Battery Risk Assessment (LIBRA). These tools will allow the Navy to analyze proposed Li-Ion battery designs and assess the overall risk to the platform in the event of failure in a single cell. The tool will also predict the effects of a ca ...

  3. A Non-Contact Displacement Sensor for Estimating Sound Pressure Level in Pipes

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT016

    The presence of noise in piping systems often serves as an early warning of mechanical problems such as faulty or cavitating pumps and valves, or boiling in cooling lines. Additionally, in many Naval environments, especially submarines, minimizing noise radiated from vibrating pipes is highly desirable. The ability to quantify the sound pressure level in fluid-filled pipes with an external sensor ...

  4. Magnetostrictive Vibration Energy Harvester (MAVEN)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT020

    Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Dr. Mohammed Daqaq from Clemson University, propose to develop a magnetostrictive materials based device for harvesting energy from mechanical vibration. The energy harvesting device will harness power from ship-hull vibrations in order to power sensing devices. This technology will be a key enabler for improved structural and machinery health management. K ...

  5. Wireless, Wide Frequency Band Otoactoustic Emissions Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT032

    The nature and requirements of military operations lead to high noise levels, exposing military and civilian personnel to the possibility of noise-induced hearing loss. Otoacoustic emission (OAE) probes can assess the health of the inner ear by testing the response of the cochlea to various types of stimuli. The measurement of emissions at high frequency has the potential to detect noise-induced d ...

  6. A Battery Pack Risk Assessment Tool

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT014

    When many Lithium-ion battery cells are integrated into a large pack, the possible outcomes resulting from individual cell faults are complex and difficult to predict. Consequently, there is great interest in developing design tools to aid in the optimization of pack performance as well as to understand and mitigate the effects of individual cell failures from propagating to other cells or even th ...

  7. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...

  8. Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures Subjected to Impulsive Dynamic Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    Aluminum as a structural material for naval applications has a number of advantages over steel, owing mainly to significant weight reductions which translate to higher speed and range attainable by aluminum vessels. A comprehensive study of research needs for aluminum structures conducted under the ONR program identified the key research areas, which included material behavior and fracture evaluat ...

  9. A Magnetostrictive Energy Harvester for Shipboard Mechanical Vibration Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT020

    There are many efforts underway to develop distributed shipboard health monitoring sensors. These devices face strong opposition by fleet maintainers unless the requirements for power supply cabling and/or battery maintenance are eliminated. Consequently, methods for harvesting energy from local environmental conditions using heat, solar, and vibration are of great interest. As opposed to piezoele ...

  10. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...
