  1. Dual Function Nano-sorbent Filter and Sensor

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N182118

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes a simple, lightweight and regenerable system to detect and filter out contaminants in-situ via a concept originally developed and validated for NASA spacecraft life-support. It will be designed to permit drop-in integration with the OBOGS pilot breathing system and complement its operation. It will clean up pilot breathing air, protect OBOGS sorbent impair ...

  2. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...

  3. High Power, Electronically Steerable Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N182109

    The goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to design and demonstrate a monolithic architecture for two-dimensional, all-electronic beam steering of a high power, mid-infrared laser. A photonic integrated circuit architecture is described which contains a widely tunable, mid-infrared quantum cascade laser integrated with a phase-adjustable amplifier array and a high efficiency grating outcoupler. ...

  4. Monolithic Quantum Cascade Laser-based Platform with Electronically Controlled Output Beam Steering

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N182109

    In response to the NAVY SBIR solicitation N182-109, the IRGLARE team proposes the development of a 4.6m Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) source delivering >1W of continuous wave (CW) optical power with monolithically integrated 2D beam steering mechanism. The steering angle of the output beam will be electronically controllable in the range of 10 and 25 degrees in the two planes normal to the device em ...

  5. An Effective and Durable Icephobic Coating for Turbomachinery Inlet Components

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182115

    Creare proposes to develop novel icephobic coatings for F-35 turbomachinery inlet components. Our baseline approach explores the use of two easily applied silicone-based coating technologies specifically engineered for challenging lift fan and engine compressor geometries. Our integration leverages Creares decades of advances in turbomachinery development with the advanced aerospace coating expert ...

  6. EROSION RESISTANT HYBRIDSIL ICEPHOBIC COATINGS FOR AIRCRAFT PROPULSION TURBOMACHINERY INLET COMPONENTS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N182115

    Through the proposed Navy SBIR program, NanoSonic will molecularly engineer and empirically optimize its HybridSil Icephobic coating technology for imparting long-term passive ice protection to aircraft propulsion turbomachinery inlet components. Unlike competing icephobic coating technologies that rely on unreacted, surface enriching / lubricating oils that impart temporary ice protection, NanoSo ...

  7. Durable Elastomeric and Metal based Icephobic Coatings for Turbomachinery Ice Protection Applications

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: N182115

    Icing conditions create significant safety concerns within the aircraft turbomachinery, and in surrounding nacelles, stators, and thrust vectoring surfaces. Icephobic surfaces could significantly reduce the accretion of ice within these components, allowing for safer operation. However, even after decades of research, there are no known icephobic coatings that can function in aircraft engine reali ...

  8. Noninvasive Hydration Monitor for Challenging Environments

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182114

    A noninvasive wearable sensor to accurately measure and inform the hydration of naval aviators in the flight environment is proposed. It uses multifrequency bio-electric impedance analysis to accurately measure skin hydration and Total Body Water content and provide feedback to the user in real time. The proposed wrist-worn band is self-contained, durable, suitable for an extreme range of environm ...

  9. Wearable Aircrew Hydration and Physiology Monitor

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N182114

    Physiological events are a recognized aviation hazard, so military aircrews are trained to recognize and respond to physiological symptoms. Of all causes of physiological events, one of the most treatable is dehydration, which can lead to fatigue, increased susceptibility to physical stressors, emotional alterations, and impaired judgment. Detecting dehydration early can reduce or eliminate this r ...

  10. A Wireless Hydration Monitor for Naval Aircrew

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182114

    Naval aircrews face a difficult balancing act. Hydration is important to performance; however, relieving oneself in flight can often be a challenge. Operational observations suggest that aircrew may limit their fluid intake leading up to and during flights. Whether intentional or not, when combined with increasing mission lengths, heavy flight gear, and the low humidity environment, they may place ...
