  1. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: Innovative Defense Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT012

    In order to achieve real-time monitoring, analysis, and alerting for complex systems, a unified logging architecture must exist that can support the collection and analysis of big data. Our technical objective is to develop a unified logging architecture that supports collection, aggregation, storage, and analysis of system performance and cybersecurity logs, events, and alerts produced by Naval C ...

  4. Quench Monitoring and Control System for High-Temperature Superconducting Coils

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N19AT016

    The Navy has been developing superconducting systems, based on high-temperature superconductors (HTS), for future use on Navy ships. One of the challenges associated with superconducting magnets is the possibility of a quench, which is an event where a local hot spot develops within the superconductor that quickly spreads throughout the device, driving it into its normal and dissipative state. Sen ...

  5. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

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

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N19AT003

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team member, the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-M), propose to develop printed polymer reinforcement via additive manufacturing to provide patterns at the interlaminar regions in traditional prepreg composites with the goal of improving their interlaminar properties under mixed mode loading. Two key components will be performed under ...

  10. 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 ...
