  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  2. HIGH STRENGTH, WATER-FILLED CERAMIC NANOCOMPOSITE MICROCAPSULES WITH LOW PERMEABILITY FOR SELF-SEALING FUEL BLADDERS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    During the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and synthesize innovative, high strength ceramic nanocomposite microcapsules filled with > 80 volume percent water that are empirically optimized to function as readily dispersed powdered additives with long-term water retention, durability during air craft bladder production, and rupture during ballistic shock. NanoSon ...

  3. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  4. Repurposing Computational Analyses of Tactics for Training Assessments

    SBC: Prevailance, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    Data generated by training exercises needs to be consolidated and processed to derive more efficient, effective and adaptive training scenarios through training objective and measures of performance analysis. The main technical challenges addressed by this solution are: data from diverse sources must be pre-processed (i.e., validated, cleaned, synchronized) and loaded into a data warehouse; the ce ...

  5. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: Edison Agrosciences, Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Natural rubber is an essential manufacturing material that possesses performance properties that are superior to synthetic rubber for many product applications. However, natural rubber production is limited to a single species (rubber tree) in a limited geographic area (Southeast Asia) and is predicted to be incapable of meeting future demand. Producing rubber from another commercial crop such as ...

  6. Maintaining Satellite Coverage in Uncertain Operational Environments

    SBC: CODA LABS LLC            Topic: AF191073

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to develop a distributed algorithm embedded with capabilities of verifying and localizing coverage hole in a satellite (i.e., sensor) networks without the availability of metric information. Emphasis will be put on developing coverage verification and hole localization techniques for situations where only information about the pairwise relationships be ...

  7. Distributed Deep Learning and Sensing

    SBC: Intelligent Models Plus Inc.            Topic: AF191062

    Compared to current practices of todays processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED) cycles for fusing the outputs of single-sensor-processing chains during the feature- or decision-level fusion tasks, combining modalities at the data level to learn the target-signatures offers an opportunity to utilize the mutual information among the raw signals generated by the same target. Hence, the auto ...

  8. Printable Radar Absorbent Materials/Structures for Soldier Uniforms & Other Army Textiles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: A18BT023

    Portable Advanced Battlefield and Ground surveillance radar can now provide effective detection of small targets, posing challenges for troop movement and stealth missions. Radar absorbent strategies have been achieved in composites and larger textile objects, but effective light-weight solutions for current operational clothing and individual equipment systems such as uniforms, knapsacks and body ...

  9. Temperature Sensing Submarine ISR Buoy / Surface Ship Sensor Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  10. Optivora

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: AF191048

    The Air Force has identified a need for a Wireless Instrumentation System (WIS) to supplement or replace the complex, bulky, and inaccessible wired systems that currently reside within aircraft today. The need for connected systems is vital for many critical and non-critical flight systems but the routing is complex and the sensors that are onboard to monitor the aircraft may be located in inacces ...
