  1. Automated Launch and Recovery of Small, Untethered Unmanned Underwater Vehicles from Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: N07T037

    As a follow-on effort to a phase I STTR, a program is proposed for the detail design, fabrication, integration, and in-water demonstration testing of an automated Launch, Recovery, On-board Handling, and Servicing System (LROHSS) for hosting Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) aboard Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs). In the base phase of the program, the design concept shall be carried forward in ...

  2. Low-profile air-cooled heat sinks for GMR systems

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N08223

    ATEC, in collaboration with the Smart and Small Thermal Systems Laboratory at the University of Maryland, proposes the development of low-profile, air-cooled heat sinks for use in cooling electronic modules, such as the Ground Mobile Radio communications systems. These heat sinks will be much smaller than other air-cooled heat sinks because of the very high thermal efficiency of the micro-groove s ...

  3. Perceptually-informed Virtual Environment (VE) (PerceiVE)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: N07T028

    While a significant research has been conducted examining the transfer of training from VEs. Currently fidelity requirements are determined by performance measurements and subjective evaluations. It is often difficult to identify the specific design components that directly relate to transfer of training improvements. Furthermore, this method of design focuses on trial and error, and is therefor ...

  5. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of a Multiple Beam Inductive Output Tube (MB-IOT)

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N08049

    The multiple beam inductive output tube (MB IOT) will play a vital role as a high-power microwave source to drive the accelerator cavities used in future free electron laser directed energy weapons systems. There is a great deal that is still unknown about the complex beam wave interaction inherent in conventional IOTs; their development has largely been a cut-and-try endeavor due to a lack of ava ...

  6. Microfabricated Circuits for Sheet Electron Beam Amplifiers in the Upper Millimeter-Wave Spectrum

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N07101

    The Phase-II technical objectives are the finalization of the circuit designs and the actual micro-fabrication and testing of the circuits, which are a critical component of any amplifiers and whose function is to convert the kinetic energy of the electron beam into RF power. The Phase-II work will build on the technical foundation established by the Phase-I feasibility study of the sheet-beam amp ...

  9. Modular, Adaptive, Stimulator for Training & Test (MASTT)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N08209

    Current and future radars are becoming more sophisticated in order to handle the increased discrimination of more complex targets and corresponding target environments; outputs are detail-rich visual signatures. Current radars are looking for more than just detecting the target in these complex environments, they want to extract target features for classification. Radars are handling these requ ...
