  1. Energy Efficient, Non-Silicon Digital Signal Processing (DSP)

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N17AT027

    Superconductor digital circuits, operating at very high clock speed, can directly process wideband digitized radio frequency (RF) signals. By integrating such digital processing circuitry together with superconductor analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), we propose to develop the next generation digital-RF receivers. Leveraging the recent development of multiple superconductor ADCs on the same chip ...

  2. Integrated Computational Material Engineering Approach to Additive Manufacturing for Stainless Steel (316L)

    SBC: Senvol LLC            Topic: N16AT022

    The objective in this project is to implement and validate a probabilistic qualification framework that will enable additive manufacturing (AM) materials and part qualification through the use of a data-driven predictive model within a statistical framework. Senvol seeks to develop and validate a data-driven ICME probabilistic framework for assisting qualification of AM materials and parts. Phase ...

  3. LeastProtocol: Minimizing Attack Surface by Removing Unwanted Protocol Features

    SBC: Trail of Bits, Inc.            Topic: N18AT018

    Standard protocols such as SSL, SSH, etc. are implemented as one-size-fits-all libraries. To maximize compatibility, these libraries implement rarely used features that increase attack surface. Examples include the SSL Heart Beat feature (HeartBleed) and weak SSH ciphers (LOGJAM).The Navy would like to reduce software attack surface by removing unused protocol features. Our proposal, LeastProtocol ...

  4. Multi-Layer Mapping of Cyberspace

    SBC: Avirtek, Inc.            Topic: N18AT019

    Cyberspace includes a wide range of physical networks, storage and computing devices, applications, and users with different roles and requirements. These can be grouped into three layers: Physical, Logical, and Cyber-persona layers. Securing and protecting such complex and dynamic cyberspace resources and services are grand challenges. This project aims at developing a multi-layer anomaly behavio ...

  5. Development of Next-Generation Composite Flywheel Design for Shock and Vibration Tolerant, High Density Rotating Energy Storage

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N13AT022

    Under this Phase II effort, the design of a modular 60 kw (3.6 MJ) shock tolerant composite flywheel for backup/ride through power will be finalized. This composite flywheel design will make use of a novel low cost thermal press cure process to fabricate the individual composite rings used to build up the flywheel. The manufacturing process parameters used in previous hydroburst testing of initial ...

  6. Reworkable Epoxy Bonding for Superconductor Multi-chip Modules

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N12AT014

    HYPRES, in collaboration with University of Arkansas (UA), proposes to develop a method for manufacturing superconductor multi-chip modules (MCMs) using nano-engineered cryogenic adhesives. A superconductor MCM comprises a carrier and several flipped chips. Before final assembly on the carrier, these chips need to be screened by temporarily attaching each one to another carrier with active test ci ...

  7. Development of Characterization of Failure Modes for Mechanical Components

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: N14AT011

    This proposal describes a new process to facilitate the shock qualification of submarine components, taking advantage of the similarities between readily observable design features of these components, and correlating them to success or failure in Navy shock qualification tests. To realize this Design Feature Similarity (DFS) approach, we will develop a set of criteria based on this type of readil ...

  8. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  9. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N14AT002

    A model for structural health measurement is desired that is capable of assessing the accumulated damage and remaining useful life of components post-flight. This model will eliminate the need for load tracking during flight and prevent the additional weight and complexity of components utilized during flight. Safe is partnering with researchers at University of Memphis for this work to relate the ...

  10. Active Combustion Control of Augmentor Dynamics using Robust High-Frequency Energy Deposition

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: N14AT004

    Combustion instability, or screech, occurs in many modern gas turbine systems, and is due to the complex physical coupling of the acoustic resonances in the combustion chamber with fluctuations in the heat release of the combustion process. These instabilities can produce large pressure fluctuations that can be severe enough to damage engine hardware. Next-generation gas turbines will increase the ...
