  1. Advanced Shore Based Mooring (ASBM)

    SBC: ART ANDERSON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N101071

    The longstanding tradition of using lines to moor ships to docks is inherently labor intensive and hazardous. Synthetic line snapback, limbs caught in rigging, as well as failed deck fitting projectiles, have maimed and killed many shipboard and dockside personnel over the years. Likewise, the challenges associated with shortening, slacking, doubling up and singling up lines to adjust for changing ...

  2. Advanced Breakwater and Causeway Design Concepts

    SBC: ART ANDERSON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N092156

    The proposed Mobile Port concept, consists primarily of a modular and rapidly deployable Floodable Jetty dissipate the required Pierson-Moskowitz Sea State 5 (SS5) energy, without any additional stabilizing anchors. Within the Jetty’s lee, the Lightweight Modular Causeway System (LMCS) that has been under development by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research & Development Center (ERDC ...

  3. Energy Harvesting from Thermal and Vibration Loads due to High Temperature, High Speed Impinging Jets

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N101093

    The Navy needs technology to convert the energy content of high-speed impinging jets on aircraft carrier flight decks into useful power. We propose to develop an Active Heat Spreader (AHS) to meet Navy needs. DARPA is developing heat spreaders to remove the concentrated energy from impinging jets on Navy flight decks. Our AHS removes the concentrated energy and uses the removed energy to generate ...

  4. Robust Rotary Union for High Speed, High Power Density Rotating Electrical Machines

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N101063

    The Navy needs robust high-speed rotary unions for advanced liquid-cooled and high-temperature-superconducting (HTS) generators. We propose to develop hydrostatic bearing/seal rotary unions (HBSRUs) to meet Navy needs. Hydrostatic bearings can operate at large radii with fast rotational speeds, so our HBSRUs have room for large flow capabilities. The hydrostatic bearings offer the same advantages ...

  5. Modular In-Line Water Purifier for MOLLE Hydration Systems

    SBC: Cascade Designs            Topic: A09161

    Addressing the water purification needs of the Army in a lightweight and compact system is not trivial given the diverse range of waterborne contaminants that could potentially be found on the battlefield. Based upon Cascade Designs expertise at developing individual water purification systems for the military and outdoor markets, we are proposing a novel in-line filter design that is based on inc ...

  6. Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Development

    SBC: SciGenesis, LLC            Topic: N08187

    In this Phase I, SciGenesis is adapting adhesive materials and techniques from our current adhesive projects to the development of a pressure sensitive adhesive that will meet rigorous NAVAIR requirements for military appliqué coatings. Our group has successfully incorporated stimuli-responsive characteristics to adhesive films, and when adapted to the proposed SBIR project will allow for the adv ...

  7. Innovative Propulsion Systems for Missile Defense Interceptors

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA09001

    New and emerging threats are requiring that even boost phase propulsion become both more powerful, and more agile/flexible for improved target interception capabilities. At the same time these new boost propellants must also be safer to make and use, without increasing production costs dramatically. To meet these needs Digital Solid State Propulsion LLC (DSSP) has developed a family of Electric ...

  8. Azimuthal-Current Drive (ACD) Plasma Beam for Space Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N093223

    The proposed innovation seeks to take advantage of a recently developed highly collimated, high density plasma system which has applications for remote space debris removal. The Azimuthal-Current drive (ACD) Plasma Beam System produces a highly directed, intense plasma beam which can be shown to be effective in removing small space debris by imparting directed energy to small objects providing eno ...

  9. Ultrahigh Definition OLED Microdisplay (UDM)

    SBC: EMAGIN CORP.            Topic: AF093021

    Development of an Ultrahigh definition (>5 megapixel) active matrix OLED microdisplay with high dynamic range and refresh rate, and which provides 20/20 acuity with a digital near-eye visualization system, has the potential to significantly increase warfighter effectiveness without requiring compromises between resolution, field of view and digital capability. Active matrix OLED has been proven to ...

  10. High Resolution RF-Photonic Beam-Forming for Multi-Beam Receive Arrays

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: MDA09016

    EOSPACE will study the feasibility of using unique Hybrid TTD RF-Photonics modules for performing beam-forming operations in Multi-Beam Phased Array Antenna systems. The architecture utilizes a unique High-Resolution Hybrid True Time Delay module that was developed by EOSPACE for achieving wideband multi-beam operations over wide scan angles. These RF-Photonic modules offer greater performance cap ...
