  1. Manufacturing of Physical Scale Models for Signature Reduction

    SBC: PolyDyne            Topic: N09T016

    Polydyne and Portland State University propose a layered construction of CNC routed forms utilizing a combination of proprietary materials with a proprietary (non-heat injection molding) process. With variable density patterns, embedded materials and metal layering to construct models that accurately reflect the physics of a full scale vessel, The solution will utilize variably dense materials and ...

  2. Surface Pattern Generation from Transient Evolution of Undersea Acoustic and Hydrodynamic Impulses

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: N09T002

    Pattern generation on the ocean''s surface results from complex interactions of the atmospheric wind above, with the natural and man-made disturbance environment below. Waves are ubiquitous at the surface, and in the upper ocean. While wavetrain analysis is the basis for much of what is known about both linear and nonlinear ocean waves, it is poorly suited to the Navy''s desire for an investigat ...

  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. Compact, Lightweight Magnetic Sensor for Small Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUV)

    SBC: SKY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N08218

    Sky Research, Inc. and Geometrics, Inc. propose to develop a sensor system that can be efficiently integrated into various versions of the Navy MK 18 MOD 1 Swordfish and Remote Environmental Measurement UnitS (REMUS)-100 in-service Unmanned Underwater Vehicles using extremely small, very low power total field magnetic sensors. To meet the needs of the U.S. Navy, the system will be designed to corr ...

  6. High Efficiency Stretchable (Highly Conformable) Photovoltaics for Expeditionary Forces

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N09T020

    Various high-efficiency thin-film photovoltaic (PV) materials have been applied to flexible substrates. These thin PV films are most often sputtered onto plastic or thin metal substrates, which are generally sufficiently flexible to be rolled up but are not highly deformable or stretchable. Amorphous silicon and thin silicon modules and their metal interconnects all rupture when stretched. Organic ...

  7. Large-Volume Production of Monodisperse Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N091073

    A prototype high-volume continuous-flow carbon nanotube (CNT) synthesis process will be developed to implement a process that has demonstrated >95% yields of high-purity CNTs. The reactor’s multi-zone furnace and direct-injection catalyst delivery system will be placed under computer control, and the product stream will be delivered to a modified version of an existing flow-synthesis reactor. Th ...
