  1. Ordnance Handling MultiAgent System (OHMAS)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N092096

    In today’s asymmetric warfare, there is a clear need to accelerate the flow of weapons from magazine to aircraft. This involves developing a semi-automated system that will significantly improve ordnance handling aboard air-capable ships. This system should prepare a Weapons Handling Plan using as much autonomy as the Weapons Department personnel are comfortable with, from collaborative software ...

  2. Sensor And Track Fusion for Collaborative Reconnaissance (SEA TRAFFCR)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N091068

    The driving force behind ONR’s unmanned sea surface vehicle (USSV) program is the great potential for these versatile vehicles to support Navy ships in the littoral environment. However, if USSVs are to fulfill this expectation, efforts must be made to make them less challenging to operate in order to reduce the manpower footprint. In a perfect world, these systems would be cooperative heterogen ...

  5. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  6. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...
