  1. A Remote Egg-oiling System with Autonomous and Automated Target Object Identification for Nuisance Bird Management

    SBC: Hitron Technologies Inc.            Topic: N183142

    Leveraging our experience and expertise in robot development and system integration (hardware and software) as well as deep learning for agricultural applications, Hitron Technologies Inc. (HTI) proposes to develop an Intelligent Remote Egg Oiling System (IREOS), with the collaboration of University of South Carolina (USC). The IREOS allows for effective nuisance bird management by performing auto ...

  2. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level. In the modified GMAW proposed, a bypass torch is added to an existing GMAW system to bypass part of ...

  3. Highly Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Alloys: Innovative Processing Methods to Enhanced Corrosion Resistance (e.g., layered structures, etc.)

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: OSD09C03

    Two different approaches will be investigated for producing aluminum alloys with a layer structure that have mechanical properties similar to Al 7050-T7 and Al 7075-T6 and greatly improved corrosion resistance. Layered aluminum alloys will be produced using the Novelis-Fusion™ casting process. This process is very cost effective and has been demonstrate on commercial products. The other appro ...

  4. Innovative Methodologies for the Development of a High Strength, Anodize-Free Corrosion Resistant, Aerospace Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: OSD09C02

    The objective of this program is develop high strength aluminum alloys ( as high strength as that of 7075-T6) that would not require anodization to achieve corrosion resistance. Among the Al alloy systems, only 7xxx and Al-Cu-Li alloy systems are capable of such a high strength level of 7075-T6 properties ( design minimum tensile yield stress of 75 ksi). Therefore, only these two alloy systems ...

  5. Micro Tube Direct Expansion (DX) R-134a Refrigerant Economizer

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP7

    The goal of this proposal will be to demonstrate the viability of a micro tube heat exchanger in an HVAC application on board a Navy vessel. Specifically, a product design sequence will be completed, resulting in R-134a economizer that will provide volume and weight savings over existing technologies. The program will include tasks to test the strength and overall structural properties of the head ...

  7. Hybrid electric drive for small craft

    SBC: LITTORAL RESEARCH GROUP L.L.C.            Topic: N03119

    The hybrid-electric technology being developed by LRG in this Phase II effort is a key enabling technology for the U. S. Navy. This hybrid electric drive train will provide a foundation for further research and development into electric propulsion, payloads requiring electric power, and high-speed hull design based on electric propulsors. This hybrid electric drive system will also support the d ...

  8. Airborne and Air-Deployed Multi-Sensor Search Optimization

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04022

    SCOUT (Sensor Coordination for Optimal Utilization and Tactics) is a Neptune Sciences, Inc. project that solves a multi-static active sonar optimization problem in an arbitrarily complex environment. SCOUT combines several techniques to identify optimal locations and “ping” times for a discrete set of active sonars and receivers in a complex propagation environment. The Phase I results invol ...

  9. CURVE (Coordinated UV Routing in Variable Environments)

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N04T003

    The objective is to determine the best algorithmic approach to optimally select unmanned vehicle flight paths that maximize mission success for attached sensors. That involves trade-offs between a) active emissions and passive collections, b) high and low altitudes, c) high and low speeds, d) day and night operations, e) rough and smooth terrain, f) accuracy and efficiency, etc. The solutions wi ...

  10. SPEAR (Search Planner with Environmentally Adaptive Response)

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N05044

    Since the Second World War, increased performance has been acquired by investing heavily in expensive new sensor hardware, including advanced off-board sensors, at the near exclusion of developing new algorithms and tactics to optimize use of sensors in complex environments. The shift toward threats in just such hostile areas demands a more synergistic approach wherein new sensors breed new tacti ...
