  1. Protective CMAS Coatings for SiC CMCs

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: A17030

    Graded rare earth hafnia multilayer coatings with three different top layer compositions will be deposited on SiC CMC and alumina substrates, characterized by XRD, SEM and EDS, and subjectedtoflowing air-steam at 50% relative humidity without and with CMAS in both isothermal and thermal cycling conditions.Post test analyses include weight change, SEM microstructure characterization changes, XRD/ED ...

  2. Vascularized Tissue Construction Using Specialized 3D Bioprinting Techniques

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A17068

    Tissue engineering technology is of particular import to the Army for the matter of producing tissue replacements for the repair and regeneration of various organ systems (liver, heart, muscle, lung, etc.) for wounded patients. Unfortunately, the production of masses of tissue with thicknesses greater than ~1 mm presents a challenge due to diffusion limits of nutrients into the tissue and waste ou ...

  3. Adaptive Armor Actuator Mechanisms

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A17115

    Conventional vehicle armor has evolved considerably over the years, including homogeneous plates, composite materials, and reactive substrates.Variable orientations have also been implemented, including curved, sloped, angled, and spaced plates.A common characteristic among these conventional armor solutions is that they are static and incapable of changing in response to local threats.Adding a me ...

  4. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antifungals for Textile Applications

    SBC: Antimicrobial Materials, Inc.            Topic: A17018

    Fungal skin infections plague active duty servicemembers at elevated rates due to exposure to warm, humid climates, poor skin hygiene, and close-quarters living arrangements. We have developed a novel solution that incorporates an endophytic fungal extract with selective activity against Trichophyton species of pathogens. In addition, the selected compound has negligible impact on the organisms th ...

  5. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...

  6. Multifunction-Multimodal Airborne Radar in Maritime/Littoral Environments

    SBC: Saze Technologies, LLC            Topic: N182120

    To obtain spectrum dominance the U.S. Navy needs to make use of all the Radio Frequency assets on their SWAP-constrained platforms. Thus it is critical that the apertures available can be used as effective active and passive radar, high-data-rate communications, ELINT/SIGINT, ESM and Electronic Protection (EP) and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems. Integrating these capabilities into a single multi- ...

  7. Fooling Computer Vision Classifiers with Adversarial Examples

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182127

    The Lynntech team proposes to develop a Computer Vision FoolKit system that integrates cutting-edge approaches to systematically evaluate physically realizable adversarial attacks against several leading computer vision classifiers. It has been noted that most deep neural networks are demonstrably vulnerable to adversarial examples, even in the form of small-magnitude changes in intensities of the ...

  8. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference

    SBC: KSA, LLC            Topic: N182135

    The Base and Option propose applying machine learning (ML) deep learning (DL) methods to estimate the Waveguide Invariant (WGI). The ML and DL application also provide prior parameterization of the waveguide. Data fusion methods generate Energy Spectral Density (ESD) and Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) to characterize the uncertainty of the sound speed profile in the water column from which t ...

  9. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N182110

    Development of an efficient device capable of concentrating ultrafine radioactive particulate aerosols is essential to the detection of nuclear detonations using a Radionuclide Aerosol Sampler and Analyzer (RASA) system as well as U.S. Navys development of a fast acting naval radiation detection system. We propose to develop an efficient device for ultrafine particulate aerosol concentration and s ...

  10. Mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers with highly efficient heat extraction architecture

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182113

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin proposes to demonstrate a new active region and thermal packaging configuration for the mid-wave infrared quantum cascade lasers that provide both high modal overlap with the laser active region and a dramatically reduced thermal impedance of the laser compared to the current state-of-the-art. The proposed laser desig ...
