  1. Compact, Lightweight Chemical Sensor for Underwater UXO Detection

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N091046

    The proposed project will focus on the development of an ultra-sensitive chemical trace detector for underwater unexploded ordnance (UUXO) detection. The envisioned technology is suitable for diver and/or unmanned underwater vehicle deployment.

  2. Biofuels Production From Nonedible Bio-oils

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: N09T034

    The challenge has been set to strengthen the military''s fuel supply lines with modular, easily sourced, renewable feedstocks. Microalgae, and other non-edible feedstocks, must be aggressively developed without delay. Microalgal fuel feedstock has been refined to produce biofuels with properties and performance comparable to their petroleum-derived counterparts. Biofuels derived from algae oil s ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. SAGE: Situational Awareness for the GTWO (Getting the Word Out) Environment)

    SBC: Referentia Systems Incorporated            Topic: OSD07CR1

    New approaches are needed to address situational awareness and analysis in “getting the word out” (GTWO), in support public affairs functions. This proposal initiates R&D to exploit the combination of recent successes of highly-resolved epidemiological simulations and models of group identity and culture – to develop a unique prototype resource for assessing the effectiveness and future of G ...

  6. Network Planning and Real-time Automated Management System (NetPARAMS)

    SBC: Referentia Systems Incorporated            Topic: N07193

    The goal of NetPARAMS is to design, develop, test, and evaluate a network management tool for the US Navy that allows for dynamic visibility and control over the routers, links, and flows to automate actions to meet the commander’s intent of ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship communications. The tool will provide control over routers afloat and ashore to help manage and automate tasks, react to even ...

  7. Littoral Zone Characterization Using Merged Multi-Spectral Visible Electro Optic (EO) and Infrared (IR) Imagery

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N091021

    Geopolitical changes over the last twenty years have led to significant changes in the type of warfare that the Navy and the Marines have been asked to undertake. The Navy is increasingly asked to operate in littoral regions, and even riverine areas, leading to new requirements for accurate knowledge of the near-shore bathymetry, bottom type, landing zone trafficability. We propose to investigate ...
