  1. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: N10AT036

    A boats coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the crafts propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswains control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing autonomous ...

  2. Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T701

    LongWave Photonics proposes a terahertz quantum-cascade laser based swept-source optical coherence tomography (THz SS-OCT) system for single-sided, 3D, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of non-conductive materials. The THz SS-OCT system uses a frequency tunable QCL array to generate an interferometric signal between a reference mirror, and a sample. An algorithm is used to transform this signal in ...

  8. High Density, Insensitive Oxidizer with RDX Performance

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N11AT034

    RDX and HMX are energetic oxidizers with high energy density, but have moderate sensitivity to accidental detonation. The Navy requires new energetic oxidizers with performance comparable to or better than HMX and RDX, but with low sensitivity. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), and its partner, propose to synthesize and characterize a new triazine based energetic oxidizer with high energy and low sens ...
