  1. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  2. Plasmonic Enhanced Infrared Rectennas: Energy Harvesting, Terahertz Detection and Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: N11AT003

    The overall goal at the end of this multi-phase program is to develop an energy harvester composed of rectenna arrays that are connected in parallel that harness significant amounts of infrared electromagnetic energy. The ultimate systems will be capable of harvesting watts, kilowatts of energy using these structures fabricated in parallel on a large scale, or for smaller scale application specifi ...

  3. Advanced Thin-film Battery Development

    SBC: FLEXEL LLC            Topic: N11AT006

    A zinc-water battery system for use in underwater environments is proposed, with an expected energy density significantly higher than lithium-ion batteries and slightly less than zinc-air batteries. The research proposed utilizes a concentrated electrolyte, which when combined with an outside water supply on a catalytic electrode surface acts as cathode of the zinc-water cell. The technology is lo ...

  4. High Fidelity Helicopter Lag Damper Model for Comprehensive Rotor Analysis

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N11AT010

    Rotors and their associated dynamic components operate in high-cycle and environmentally harsh conditions. Accurate rotor load predictions are crucial part of rotor analysis and design. Lag damping poses a challenge for rotor load analysis due to the difficulty of incorporating lag damper effects into comprehensive rotor analysis. The key challenge in effectively predicting the lead-lag motions an ...

  5. SCAFLE- Self Calibrating, Adaptive, Fused LIDAR/EO Sensor

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N11AT020

    The ability to fuse electro-optical (EO) imagery with range data enhances the robustness of unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) autonomy by allowing discrimination between types of terrain that cannot be distinguished on the basis of geometry alone (non-traversable mud vs. dry soil, non-traversable rocks vs. traversable brush, etc.). Performing this fusion requires knowing both the intrinsic (optical ce ...

  6. Cognitive Ultra-low Power Sensor System (CUPSS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N11AT021

    On the network centric battlefield, threat detection and identification remain crucial capabilities to the warfighter. For tactically relevant applications, the endurance and performance tradeoff remain the limiting factors in determining how long sensing and analytic capabilities can remain operative while unattended. In this proposal, Intelligent Automatic Inc. (IAI in collabor ...

  7. Advanced-Architecture Compressor/Expanders for Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Bright Energy Storage Technologies, LLP            Topic: N11AT028

    Bright Energy Storage Technologies and the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory at Colorado State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a custom reversible compressor design for use in compressed air energy storage systems. The design proposed combines a very lightweight rotary compressor design with extremely high flow volumes, allowing a highly efficient device at extremely lo ...

  8. Novel Torque Sensing for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N11AT030

    Torque sensing poses a challenge for condition based maintenance as information from the rotating component needs to be sent to the fixed frame. Slip rings may be used though implementation and reliability are areas of concern. A non-contact method of torque sensing using magnetostrictive materials can eliminate the need for a slip ring and can provide useful information for component health monit ...

  9. Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N11AT030

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems, etc.). Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their ea ...

  10. Portable Automated Sensor Suite for Performance and Operational Readiness Tracking (PASSPORT)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: N11AT033

    In order to predict and optimize human performance under reduced manpower conditions, it is helpful to model aspects of physical and cognitive performance under varied conditions, highlighting tradeoffs between task time and accuracy, cost, schedule, hardware/software, and human capabilities/limitations). However, current naval human performance models such as Total Crew Model and IMPRINT have yet ...
