  1. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  2. Data Science Techniques for Various Mission Planning Processes and Performance Validation

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...

  3. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P&J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  4. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Epirus, Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the governments objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales to a ...

  5. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    Aret Associates, along with STTR partner Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), are proposing a comprehensive software capability for scene generation, object insertion, and performance modeling for passive and active EO COBRA sensors over the surf zone. The Surf Zone Modeling Tool (SZT) will incorporate several technologies, including: open-source and Aret-designed SZ ocean physics models, an i ...

  6. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integral Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: Mirios, Inc.            Topic: N19AT005

    Mirios Inc., in collaboration with UCSB and NRL, proposes to construct a high-brightness MWIR (~4.5-4.9 m) light source, consisting of a single silicon chip with an array of Quantum Cascade Lasers which are fully-integrated with wavelength beam combiners.

  7. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: Real-time Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N19AT012

    We propose to develop an open, highly scalable, extensible and secure unified logging architecture for performance and cybersecurity monitoring for Naval Control Systems (NCSs). The primary goal of this architecture is to realize a centralized logging infrastructure for monitoring the status of the entire NCS through collecting and aggregating logs from all subsystems. It will be built upon widely ...

  8. Communication Over Material Penetrating UltraSound

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N191038

    To address the Navy need for a through-hull wireless communication system that does not require additional hull penetrations, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a first-of-its-kind Communication Over Material Penetrating UltraSound (COMPUS) system. The innovation in the design of this system is based on a combination of commercially available ultrasonic transducers with state-of ...

  9. Low-SWaP MWIR/SWIR Camera

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N191039

    Work in this effort will be focused on the challenge of providing a high-performance, ruggedized, low size, weight, and power (SWaP) dual-band, mid-wave infrared/short-wave infrared (MWIR/SWIR) camera. In recent years there have been a number of advances in the area of MWIR camera systems, including larger focal plane arrays with smaller pixels, new materials that can operate at higher temperature ...

  10. Open-Path, Self-Calibrating Cavity Ringdown System for Multi-Wavelength Optical Extinction Measurements

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: N191040

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop an open-path, self-calibrating cavity ringdown system (CRDS) that can measure optical extinction at multiple visible and near-infrared wavelengths. The resulting instrument will supplant existing, scattering-based visibility sensors, and be used by the Navy for directed energy weapons (DEWs) and free-sp ...
