  1. Durable Elastomeric and Metal based Icephobic Coatings for Turbomachinery Ice Protection Applications

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: N182115

    Icing conditions create significant safety concerns within the aircraft turbomachinery, and in surrounding nacelles, stators, and thrust vectoring surfaces. Icephobic surfaces could significantly reduce the accretion of ice within these components, allowing for safer operation. However, even after decades of research, there are no known icephobic coatings that can function in aircraft engine reali ...

  2. Compact Low Noise Acoustic Sensors for Sonobuoys

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182136

    As foreign submarines become increasingly quieter, there is an ever-present need to improve the performance of passive surveillance systems to increase the probability of detection and ability to resolve critical signature differences useful for classification. Passive acoustic surveillance system such as sonobuoys typically employ arrays of hydrophones, configured to discriminate against backgrou ...

  3. Low-Cost Approach for Improved Performance of the Upper Section of the Directional Frequency Analysis and Recording Sonobuoy

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182097

    This SBIR solicitation provides the opportunity to specifically look at AN/SSQ-53G sonobuoy subsystems, investigating how our community can miniaturize the existing and required subsystems to provide margin for the development of a new passive directional array. Within the scope of this proposal, we will discuss how SeaLandAire and USSI will systematically and thoroughly address the AN/SSQ-53G son ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. WingMAN Ph II

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N172117

    Spatial Disorientation (SD) is cited as a contributing factor in five to ten percent of all aviation incidents; and has a 90% fatality rate (Heinle & Ercoline, 2002). SD impacts both fixed- and rotor-wing aviators, and SD impacts pilots at every skill level. To combat SD, aviation training provides exposure to SD materials at multiple points in the training process, including classroom-based instr ...

  6. Development of Long-Life, Energy-Dense Batteries Using Alpha-Beta Emitting Isotopes/Isomers

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: N191041

    The primary goal will be to prioritize a list of radioisotopes based on availability, usability, demand, strategic interests, and production methods. In addition, we will begin to design and test new nuclear battery systems (radioisotopes coupled to a semi-conductor matrix). Results from durability or efficiency tests of nuclear battery prototypes using radiation from accelerated beams can be comp ...

  7. Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) Sonobuoy

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N07121

    For the Phase I effort the target low end frequency was 0.02 Hz. This necessitated the need for a horizontal fiber optic slack line and Neutrally Buoyant Sensor Package with active buoyancy control to isolate the sensor from flow and sea state induced mechanical noise. For Phase II the low end frequency has been changed to 1.0 Hz. This is a significant change and allows the use of a passive multi- ...

  8. Novel Pyrrhotite Detection Method in Concrete Aggregate

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: N163137

    Pyrrhotite is an unstable iron sulfide found in some aggregates; its oxidation in concrete has devastating effects on the concrete-based infrastructure. The proposed project will further develop a robust and resilient nondestructive tool that employs NMR relaxometry for detecting pyrrhotite and identifying pyrrhotite-related degradation. NMR relaxometry can also identify other mechanisms of concre ...

  9. Joined Evaluation of Simulation-enabled Training for Enhanced Readiness (JESTER)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR1

    Joined Evaluation of Simulation-enabled Training for Enhanced Readiness (JESTER) focuses on research, development, and testing of a new capability, compatible and integrated with the Navys Next Generation Threat System (NGTS) that will enable dynamic performance assessments within Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) training scenarios. This work builds prior effort designed to enhance algorithms ...

  10. 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 ...
