  2. Blast Overpressure Omnidirectional Measurement Device

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: A18078

    Mainstream proposes developing a blast overpressure omnidirectional measurement (BOOM) device that detects, records, and transmits captured data for blast events experienced by individual personnel. The BOOM device is composed of a microcontroller that collects, stores, and transmits data collected from several miniature pressure transducers placed on personnel. The sensors enable capture of the p ...

  6. Nanocomposite Polymer Binders with Reversible Crosslink Architectures

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: N182129

    Many energetic material formulations rely on elastomeric polymer binders to achieve required safety, aging, and mechanical properties. These binder systems are commonly produced by cast-cure methods using HTPB and an isocyanate curative. To take advantage of emerging technologies in weapon design and manufacturing, innovative new binders are needed with tailorable cure/cross-link chemistry, improv ...

  8. Tool for High Growth Rate Produced Ultrapure GaN and Ultra High Voltage Power Electronics

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N182134

    High voltage, high efficiency current conducting switches are needed for future high power naval applications. Current commercial Si devices do not meet this need. High quality thick film GaN is a promising alternative with the theoretical capability of providing the needed performance; however, it is presently very difficult to produce such thick films reasonably in existing GaN film growth tools ...

  9. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference

    SBC: KSA, LLC            Topic: N182135

    The Base and Option propose applying machine learning (ML) deep learning (DL) methods to estimate the Waveguide Invariant (WGI). The ML and DL application also provide prior parameterization of the waveguide. Data fusion methods generate Energy Spectral Density (ESD) and Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) to characterize the uncertainty of the sound speed profile in the water column from which t ...

  10. Reliable 5W Continuous Wave Quantum Cascade Lasers with a Nearly Gaussian Circular Output Beam

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N182113

    In response to the NAVY SBIR solicitation N182-113, the IRGLARE team is pleased to propose the development of highly reliable 4.5m Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) delivering over 5W of continuous wave optical power in a nearly gaussian beam (M2 < 1.5) with a low ellipticity. The combination of the high optical power and long term reliability will be achieved by over a two-fold reduction in laser the ...
