  1. Remote Release Device for Marine Mammal Electronic Tags

    SBC: Wildlife Computers, Inc.            Topic: N09T029

    Design and evaluate components for a new device for remotely releasing electronic tags that have been attached to marine animals with a focus on a novel approach for the release mechanism. Current methods for releasing tags include corrodible metal pins and mechanical devices for cutting plastic or steel wires. These methods are less reliable because the attachment wires and pins may prematurely ...

  2. Global Information Grid (GIG) Tactical Edge Networks (TEN)

    SBC: COCO COMMUNICATIONS CORP.            Topic: N07111

    The United States Navy has operational requirements for connectivity to all tactical participants in warfighting operations. Navy SBIR N07-111 Phase I demonstrated the use of the CoCo protocol for use in Tactical Edge Network (TEN) – MANET networks with highly mobile participants, rapidly changing topologies, and unreliable transports. Phase II of this effort will demonstrate the use of this pro ...

  5. SVELTE: Lightweight MAD Sensor Towing System for UAVs and Small Helicopters

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N08001

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a “Small VEhicle Lightweight Towing Equipment” (SVELTE) system to enable small aircraft and UAVs to deploy and tow magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) sensors with highly stable sensor attitude. In our Phase I effort, we met the challenging weight and stability requirements by developing a novel ‘orbital winch’ mechanism, designing and prototy ...

  6. Low Maintenance and Low Cost Cryocooler

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: N091051

    Cryocoolers currently in use for High Temperature Superconducting Degaussing (HTSDG) systems onboard Navy ships (Gifford McMahon based) meet the basic performance requirement of 200 W of heat lift at 50°K. However they are inefficient (7.5 kW input power) and prone to frequent maintenance (10,000 hours). Infinia Corporation proposes the development of a maintenance-free, highly efficient practica ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
