  1. Extensible Affordable Software Defined Radio with Cross-Band Cross-Protocol Capability

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: N08T034

    Acadia Optronics, LLC, in partnership with the University of Kansas, proposes to develop a hybrid reconfigurable Software-Defined-Radio (SDR) architecture in which plug-in, front-end, rf modules interface to powerful, reconfigurable processing hardware and software through high-throughput interconnects. The complexity of the plug-in modules may range from simple antennas, to complete communication ...

  2. Heat Extraction from Underwater Acoustic Projectors

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N08T020

    The present proposal is focused on developing novel methods to counteract excessive heat build-up in underwater sonar projectors. Building on over 25 years of experience in the design of Navy sonar devices and thermal management applied to high power density transducers and smart material actuators, Active Signal Technologies and Alfred University will model several readily implemented passive an ...

  3. Extensible Affordable Software Defined Radio with Cross-Band Cross-Protocol Capability

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N08T034

    Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and solutions are proven and capable. However, the cost of the systems limits their immediate use outside of military applications. Beside the cost of the SDR systems, it has been difficult to develop SDR concepts and prototypes on platforms that have clear migration paths to become commercial products. EFJI and Virginia Tech propose to develop a versati ...

  4. Haptic Automated Communication System (HACS)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: N06149

    Under complementary Phase II efforts, ATinc and DI will improve and integrate the System for Tactile Representation of Advanced Patterns (STRAP) and the Team Status and Signaling System (TS3) prototypes to create a bi-directional Haptic Automated Communication System (HACS), which will enable real-time wireless transmission and tactile presentation of gathered status information and hand-signals f ...

  5. Automating Ship Assembly Planning and Simulation


    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can help U.S. shipyards reduce cost and schedule risks. A major barrier to employing DES in shipyards is the overwhelming task of modeling production facilities and work content. Another obstacle is large data volumes generated for shipbuilding can seriously degrade system performance. The goals of this project are to reduce manual data input for simulation by at le ...

  6. 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 lasers for military 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 available mod ...

  7. Fiber Optic Vector Sensor Arrays

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE SCIENCES CORP.            Topic: N07215

    Twinline and vector sensor towed arrays correct the left-right ambiguity inherent in hydrophone systems and offer significant performance and tactical advantages against noisy interferers in a non-isotropic noise environment. A vector sensor array is preferred because it provides similar capability to twinline and uses a single line array versus towing two independent arrays. This difference drama ...

  8. Tactile Situational Awareness System (TSAS)

    SBC: Chesapeake Technology International Corporation            Topic: N07043

    The technical problem being addressed by Chesapeake Technology International (CTI) for this Phase 2 SBIR is to provide a helicopter (or fixed wing) pilot with a tactile (touch feeling) situational awareness (SA) system during periods of high mission tasking (landing or hovering) and low visibility (night, poor weather, brown-out due to debris blow-up). Helicopter pilots have a unique scan require ...

  9. Innovative Techniques of Modeling and Simulation for Commercial Derivative Aircraft Upset Recovery

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N08005

    The National Transportation Safety Board's accident database reveals that up to 40% of all commercial aviation fatalities are due to loss of control. The military is acquiring commercial-derivative aircraft for certain missions, and will fly these aircraft more aggressively, increasing the potential for loss-of-control accidents. The main options available for obtaining aerodynamic derivatives o ...

  10. Development of software tool suite for the prediction of bubbly wake acoustic signature of waterjet propelled surface ships

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N06T022

    Surface ship generated bubbles are a major signature contributor. For advanced ships such as the LCS, waterjet propulsion adds another source of air entrainment through the waterjet free surface interactions. In littoral warfare, such wakes provide an opportunity to wake homing torpedoes due to large acoustic cross-section of bubbles. While there is research on breaking waves bubbles, little is ...
