  1. Compact Radar Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N132087

    Directed electromagnetic (RF, microwave and millimeter wave) energy offers unique and flexible options for non-lethal weapons, but the technology for these systems needs to achieve smaller and lighter packaging. Of particular interest are the Multi-frequency RF Vehicle Stopper at L-Band and the Active Denial Array at W-Band. The antennas currently employed for these systems are large reflectors th ...

  2. Simultaneous multi-beam high-bandwidth conformal tactical data link antenna systems

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N132089

    n this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the Fire Scout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. The use of multibeam arrays will allow the Fire Scout and other UAV platforms to augment fleet communications, supporting information ...

  3. Determining Evaporative Duct and Boundary Layer Refractivity Profile in Optical and RADAR/Radio Wavebands Afloat

    SBC: Dakota Ridge R&D            Topic: N132141

    Oceanic refractivity gradients induce operational and security concerns of naval operations. Continuous passive characterization of refractive effects upon visble, IR, and radio/RADAR electromagnetic propagation through passive relatively inexpensive multiband IR camera observations is enabled with the apparatus and methods proposed herein.

  4. A Universal Battery Management System with Advanced Diagnostic Algorithms

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N113177

    Electric ships and other Naval applications employing batteries (and ultracapacitors) for energy storage need a universal battery management system (BMS) that can diagnose device degradation and ensure safe operation. The Navy currently faces a difficult situation; where each energy storage device has a dedicated BMS, often with limited diagnostic abilities. TDA will develop a modular BMS with uni ...

  5. 3-D Mechanical Iris Missile Tube Forward Closure

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N132142

    The Navy Ohio Replacement Ballistic Missile Submarine Program is a major endeavor aiming at designing and building a new class of 12 ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) to replace the current force of SSBNs. Current Ohio-Class SSBNs are armed with Trident ballistic missiles or Tomahawk missiles if converted to guided missile submarines (SSGNs). These missiles are launched from vertical launch tub ...

  6. Low-Profile, Broadband, Shear-Mode SONAR Transducer for Deep Submergence Applications

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N141066

    BTech proposes the design and development of a low-profile, broadband, shear-mode piezocrystal acoustic transducer for deep submergence applications. The Phase I effort considers evaluation of design variants of shear mode transducers with increased pressure operation/tolerance and tradeoffs associated with the same. Design feasibility is supported with calculations of expected performance and whe ...

  7. Submersible GPS Enhancement and Playback System

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N103232

    Under the Phase I SBIR effort, we designed a Submersible GPS Enhancement and Playback System (SGEPS) to allow processing of the GPS signals after a submarine has submerged to reduce the time spent on surface for covert operations. This uses a Digital Storage Receiver (DSR) for capturing the GPS RF signals in the surface and a SAASM GPS receiver for the signal playback and processing after the subm ...

  8. Superconducting Cable Connections

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N121049

    The Navy has expressed interest in shipboard high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cable systems for power transmission and degaussing purposes. The practical application of such cable systems require flexible superconducting cables and cable connectors that allow for a quick and reliable installation into, or removal from, its pre-installed cryostat. Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC (ACT) of ...

  9. High Voltage Metal Insulator Metal (MIM) Capacitor Technology

    SBC: SUNDEW TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N121071

    This project targets the development of commercially viable Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) process for the manufacturing of high voltage metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitors for gallium nitride (GaN) Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) applications. In particular, the objective of this project is to provide a higher dielectric constant substitution for currently used dielectric layer ...

  10. A Miniaturized SERS Based Sensor Technology for detecting toxic contaminants in oxygen from aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS)

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft equipped with On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS) selectively filter nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants in air from the aircraft's engine to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. Under suboptimal operating conditions, toxic byproducts can breach the OBOGS and enter the aircrew's oxygen supply. Current contaminant sensor technologies tend to lack the respon ...
