  1. Ultra-Compact Upper

    SBC: GUIDE STAR ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N182097

    Developments in electronics have significantly reduced the cost of radios, computing power, and data storage requirements. The computer advances are obvious to anyone who has used a computer for more than a few years. The development of software defined radio (SDR) technology, together with low cost/low power microcontrollers, allows new devices in the sonobuoy form factor to be developed rapidly ...

  2. Technology Development of Fiber Optic Moorings for Surface Communication Buoys

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N183141

    Makai proposes to address the small communications buoy mooring problem by developing a technology for small diameter fiber optic cable compliance. Makais solution will solve the issue of how a small diameter fiber optic cable can be used for the mooring of small retractable buoys and provide the needed compliance to protect the delicate optical fiber in sea state 3 or 4 conditions. The compliance ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Methods for Measuring an Acoustic Arrays Straightness and for Autonomous Mechanical Straightening to Avoid Contact with Sea Bottom Under All Operatio

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171055

    The Navy uses towed arrays in the long-range tracking of submarine contacts. The acoustic performance of the array is dependent on the straightness of the array which is subject to drooping as ship velocities decrease and to bending and turning due to currents. The Navy is seeking innovation to autonomously straighten the array and protect the array from damage due to seafloor dragging. Makai deve ...

  5. Temperature Sensing Submarine ISR Buoy / Surface Ship Sensor Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  6. Fleet Material Locator Information System (FMLIS)

    SBC: Premier Solutions HI, LLC            Topic: N182122

    In order to support operational objectives for readiness across the vast PACOM area of responsibility, Commander Pacific Fleet (COMPACFLT) requires improved visibility into the availability of parts and other material. While a wide range of logistics systems from multiple DoD agencies provide data on material from supplier to on-hand inventory, critical gaps exist in tracking material while in tra ...

  7. Clearinghouse for Subsistence Ordering & Receipt (CSOR)

    SBC: Premier Solutions HI, LLC            Topic: N182123

    The Navys food logistics operations rival the largest commercial enterprises in scale and complexity, but the Navy has not been able to take advantage modern food service management systems. Current Navy processes are plagued by out-of-date vendor catalogs, manual/duplicate data entry, man-in-the-loop delays, manual data transfers, and non-compliant processes and systems. Business-to-Business (B2B ...

  8. Handheld Multi-Color Long-wave Infrared Imager for Infantry

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N191001

    Enhancing existing handheld, broadband long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging systems with multi-color capability will enable new applications for infantry with no increase in overall weight load. Applications enabled by a multi-color LWIR sensor potentially spectral target detection, day/night operation and enhanced personnel target detection range. The technology will be able to seamlessly toggle bet ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
