  1. Commandable Mobile Anti Submarine Warfare Sensor (CMAS)

    SBC: Advanced Avionics Incorporated            Topic: N08008

    The AAI CMAS conceptual Phase I design focused on two primary design features: the feasibility of designing AEER and IEER-type acoustic sources capable of meeting the CMAS mission requirements, and designing both acoustic source and vehicle propulsion modules compatible with A-size sonobuoy packaging constraints. AAI’s Phase II design successfully meets these CMAS requirements. The proposed CMAS ...

  2. Vortex Enhanced Direct Contact Heat Exchanger for Navy HVAC

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N091074

    As thermal management requirements aboard Navy platforms increase, conventional HVAC technology is becoming a liability in terms of mass, volume, and heat transfer capability. Future thermal demands will increase and the majority of this load will be handled by either the HVAC or chilled water system. Advances in heat exchanger technology are necessary to remove the increased thermal energy withou ...

  3. High Energy, High Power Supercapacitor-Battery Hybrid Energy Storage System

    SBC: Y-CARBON            Topic: N091053

    This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop high-energy, high-power supercapacitor-battery hybrid energy storage systems. Batteries are widely used, but have limited power capability and cycle life. Supercapacitors, also called ultracapacitors or double-layer capacitors, are rechargeable electrical energy storage devices Supercapacitors offer higher power, and greater cyclability than ...

  4. Computer Generation of Multicore Software for Software-Defined Radio

    SBC: SpiralGen            Topic: N09T036

    Future software platforms starting with today’s multicores will be massively parallel, offer unprecedented performance, and will be exceedingly difficult to program. In this project, we will work towards automatic development of high-performance software for these platforms. Specifically, we will design a tool that can computer-generate the performance critical components of software-defined rad ...

  5. Optimized Single Crystal Technology for Undersea Tracking

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N092108

    The objective of this program is to utilize single crystal piezoelectrics to develop a platform which contains both transmission and receiving for acoustic tracking ranges with the ability to operate at great depths undersea. The key aspects addressed in Phase I are 1) showing the performance of single crystal at high pressures, 2) determining heat generation within the crystal for a high duty cy ...

  6. Crystal Properties and Transducer Modeling for High Power Composite & Tonpilz Projector Design

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N08061

    TRS Technologies will build on the measurements performed in the Phase I program, which will allow for higher fidelity models and a more streamlined insertion of single crystal transducers into the Navy. Dynamic and bend testing of PMN-PT and modified A and B-site doped crystals will be made to better understand the tensile strength behavior of single crystal. Self-consistent temperature-dependent ...

  7. Lightweight Structures Roadside Blast Protection

    SBC: Ablaze Development Corporation            Topic: N09T032

    The key technical objective of the Phase I effort will be the successful development of lightweight compact structures that can be applied to vehicles, either as add-on structures or as an integral part of the vehicle. This will be accomplished through analysis, simulation, practical experience, intuition and experimentation, with the aid of artificial intelligence, primarily in the form of gen ...

  8. Motive and Affect-based Robotic Control (MARC)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD06UM7

    This project addresses two core challenges to wider and more effective use of robotic and uninhabited vehicles (UxVs), the need for more robust and understandable autonomy, and for simplified, intuitive, and more learnable human control mechanisms. The Phase I effort created an advanced control mechanism and interface for UxVs based on PAC, an innovative cognitive model of personality and emotio ...

  9. Representation Environment for Translated Network Analyses (RETNA)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N091076

    Driven by immediate homeland security concerns, much recent research has focused on formal predictive methodologies. The effectiveness and even the appropriateness of these methodologies continue to be hotly debated. Analyses focused at the organizational or mid-range level of group activity offer an alternative approach with potential for significant near term return. Social network analysis is a ...

  10. Large Eddy Simulations of Hot Supersonic Jets for Aeroacoustics


    The noise from the turbulent, hot, supersonic jets at take-offs and landings as well as high-Mach cruise at altitude dominates noise emanating from other powerplant components and has significant safety implications for launch personnel, as well as environmental impacts of noise pollution around military installation. Noise generation mechanisms of supersonic jets are quite complex and different t ...
