  1. Large Component, High-quality Composite Fabrication Using Nanocarbon Heating Films

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N18BT031

    Autoclaves are typically used to fabricate high-quality composite components with acceptable thermal properties and low void volume. They provide elevated temperature processing cycles and external pressure required for adequate compaction to achieve these desired properties. However, autoclaves represent large capital and energy investment while limiting the size of fabricated parts and productio ...

  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. Collective Meta-Reasoning Runtime Assurance of Machine Intelligence for Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N18BT032

    Barron Associates has teamed with a prominent researcher in the field of formal verification of cyber physical systems to propose a new paradigm in runtime assurance for complex autonomous systems controlled and operated by artificial machine intelligence. A two-stage approach is considered in which formal verification processes are first performed offline at algorithm design time. Online, during ...

  4. TRACE – Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N18BT033

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes the design and implementation of the Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence (TRACE) system that incorporates classical model-based target classification and identification approaches with data-driven machine learning solutions to improve the target classification accuracy. The outcome of the TRACE systems is a set of machine lea ...

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

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N19AT003

    The performance of a composite material is heavily influenced by the strength and toughness of the interlaminar region, which is the resin rich area between the plies of a fiber reinforced composite. The interlaminar region generally provides a direct path for crack propagation since no continuous reinforcement is present and is often the cause of failure in materials subjected to cyclic loading s ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  9. Homopolar AC Electric Machines for Naval Applications

    SBC: McCoy Consulting, LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The objective of this proposed effort is to increase the power and torque density of rotating electric machinery for Naval applications by up to 50%. This aggressive goal will be achieved by developing the novel homopolar AC machine (HAM) topology. This relatively un-studied topology relies on solenoidal field and armature coils, making manufacturing simpler than traditional machines. The HAM elim ...

  10. GECCO: Gecko-gripper for EOD with Cavitation Cleaning Operation

    SBC: ZERO-G HORIZONS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N19AT011

    The objective of the Phase I proposal is to investigate the application of controlled cavitation cleaning technology in conjunction with gecko-inspired mechanical adhesion and soft elastomeric applicators for use in non-intrusive EOD operations. This investigation requires the proof-of-concept testing and validation of a controlled cavitation cleaning mechanism, and a soft robotic gecko-inspired m ...
