  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Free Space Optical (FSO) Communications in a Radio Frequency (RF) Denied Environment

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N181027

    QuantaSpec proposes an approach to a small size, light weight, low power, low cost Free Space Optical Communication System for use with tactical aircraft. The scope of work will assess trade space and mitigation approaches to overcome key challenges of FSO communication. These mitigation approaches can enable improved range, reliability, data rate, and security of communications.

  4. Cross-Domain Goggles with an Integrated, Illuminated Display (CDIG)

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N181086

    Current military dive masks are relatively bulky and do not function well with night vision equipment or weapons because of a large forward projection from the face. The additional size and complications of an integrated display for situational awareness and augmented reality exacerbates these problems. A versatile, compact and easy to stow goggle system with an integrated illuminated display that ...

  5. Low-Cost, High-Performance Brayton Cryocooler

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N181041

    The Navy requires affordable and robust cryogenic cooling solutions for use in High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) cable technology. Currently, gaseous helium is cooled by a cryocooler through a cryogenic heat exchanger and circulated using a helium circulation fan through a superconducting cable. While Stirling refrigerators are commonly used in the cryogenics industry, they do not scale well ...

  6. Autonomous Hull Grooming Vehicle

    SBC: Greensea Systems, Inc.            Topic: N18AT020

    The objective of this proposed effort is to develop a highly autonomous hull-grooming system that can be operated easily and cost-effectively with minimal supervision. This system will meet the rigorous standards of current manned-grooming operations using a rotating brush tool and will ensure complete coverage of the groomed area by providing on-hull positioning accuracy of 0.15m. We will develop ...

  7. Holographic Enabled Display System for Force-on-Force Marine Training

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N162123

    The objective of the Phase II work effort is to produce and demonstrate a wearable helmet mounted Holographic Enabled Display System (HEDS) for Augmented Reality (AR) applications. The innovative design surpasses all currently available see-through near-to-eye HUDs and AR displays for field of view (FOV), brightness, resolution and use with optics such as night vision devices and rifle scopes. HED ...
