  1. Novel Fiber Optic Methods for Sensing Shape, Orientation and/or Heading of Undersea Arrays and Tethers

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N08T029

    In the Phase I STTR, N08-T029 “Novel Fiber Optic Methods for Sensing Shape, Orientation and/or Heading of Undersea Arrays and Tethers” a concept was developed for a fiber optic sensing array and shape reconstruction algorithm to be used for situation awareness of flexible undersea cable structures. Undersea cable structures are deployed in environments unsuitable for direct in-situ observation ...

  2. Development of Magnetostrictive Energy Harvesting of Mechanical Vibration Energy

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N10AT020

    Applied Physical Sciences and the University of Maryland propose to develop a magnetostrictive transducer that harvests electrical energy from shipboard machinery while simultaneously suppressing vibration to improve the ship’s stealth characteristics and thereby improving the performance of hull mounted sonar systems. Analysis performed during the Base Effort will provide an initial design spec ...

  3. External Pipe Sound Pressure Level Sensor

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N10AT016

    Applied Physical Sciences (APS) and the Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory (ARL/PSU) will collaborate in the development of a novel sensor system to measure the low frequency acoustic pressures within a fluid-filled pipe. The proposed concept improves upon the Navy’s current Array Based Acoustic Measurement (ABAM) system for laboratory characterization of full-scale piping ...

  4. Integration of PALACE and Touchdown Planning Methods for Landing CUAS at Unprepared Sites

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT039

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT have been developing tools and techniques that, together with existing 3D environment decision-making and navigation tools developed by AMRDEC in the PALACE program, are well-suited to the problem of autonomous vertical landing on unprepared landing sites. In this program, Aurora will team with MIT researchers and UC Santa Cruz (UCSC licenses PALACE technologies for ...

  5. Adaptive Turbine Engine Control for Stall Threat Identification and Avoidance

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT008

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...

  6. Demonstrated Environment/Harware Cooperation for Expanded Riverine Coverage

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N10AT024

    The Barron Associates/Virginia Tech team believes that intelligent use of ambient riverine environmental factors together with novel drifter design and low-energy articulation is the key to enabling large non-overlapping river coverage. The proposed phase I research program focuses on (1) identifying key river characteristics which may be leveraged by riverine drifters, (2) fabricating a novel riv ...

  7. Development of Surface Reaction Mechanism for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Oxidation in Extreme Oxidizing Condition

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N10AT005

    The purpose of this STTR is to develop comprehensive detailed kinetics for oxidation of C-SiC-SiO2-rubber in extreme oxidizing environment. This material is used as a coating on the outer surface of Navy weapon systems. In order to predict the fate of this material under extreme conditions and mitigate the degradation of the coating, a comprehensive oxidation mechanism is required. In Phase I, CFD ...

  8. Multi-Modal Knowledge Acquisition from Documents

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT019

    Images with associated text are now available in vast quantities, and provide a rich resource for mining for the relationship between visual information and semantics encoded in language. In particular, the quantity of such data means that sophisticated machine learning approaches can be applied to determine effective models for objects, backgrounds, and scenes. Such understanding can then be used ...

  9. Complex Event Detection in Video and Communications

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT040

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase-I project will constitute design of algorithms, toolsets, and interfaces to detect and visualize complex events from video and communications data. Our proposed system would be based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which will allow users to integrate services and data from multiple sources and operate in a networked environment. The key ...

  10. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...
