  1. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  2. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. WAHTER- Wearable Aircrew Hydration Tracking and Extended Recording

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N182114

    Dehydration is a significant issue for both military and civilian personnel. However, it is of increased concern in the military fast-jet environment. Due to inconvenient urine relief mechanisms, aircrew can often become dehydrated over the course of an extended mission, whether intentionally or inadvertently. Dehydration is known to result in cognitive shortcomings, and given the complex nature o ...

  5. Multifunction-Multimodal Airborne Radar in Maritime/Littoral Environments

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: N182120

    Airborne surveillance radars continue to advance towards more flexible architectures that enable them to address evolving adversary tactics facilitated by global proliferation of RF and High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) technologies. Aided by these technologies, the adversary can use multiple electronic counter measures that can confuse traditional monostatic radars and obscure the true o ...

  6. Effect of Surface Finish and Post-Processing on the Fatigue Life of Additively Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N182126

    Additive manufacturing technology is becoming more popular for the fabrication of 3D metal products as it offers rapid prototyping and large design freedom. However, with more complex geometric features due to topology optimization, it becomes infeasible to carry out traditional surface machining process to improve surface roughness for fatigue performance. In this effort, we will develop a novel ...

  7. Computer Learning Obfuscating Adversarial Kit (CLOAK)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N182127

    In 2013, Szegedy et al. identified a series of intriguing properties of neural networks. One property introduced in the paper, adversarial examples, describes the possibility of instability in neural network classification when a small perturbation is added to input. Specifically, the authors found that a small strategic perturbation to an input image could cause a classifier to misclassify an obj ...

  8. Stackable, high voltage Silicon Carbide based DSRDs

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: N182130

    Silicon carbide (SiC) based stackable drift step recovery diodes (DSRDs) with 20 kV/1 kA/=1 MHz capability are proposed in this program for potential use in the next-generation of high-power microwave pulse generators of interest to a wide range of commercial and military applications, ranging from ultra-wide band telecommunication systems, short-range local positioning systems, power lasers, grou ...

  9. Red Team in a Box for Embedded and Non-IP Devices

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DEFENSE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N182131

    Cyber threats pose a significant risk to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) utilized in a number of different environments. Many ICS devices are embedded devices which are not directly addressable over standard remote connection means (e.g. TCP/IP), may be updated and patched less frequently than non-ICS devices, and may have been designed and implemented largely without consideration for cyber secu ...

  10. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference---- 18-075

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: N182135

    A new optimal sequential Bayesian algorithm is proposed that processes ambient ocean noise collected on the submarines passive sonar sensors into estimates of key aspects of the water sound speed profile (SSP), sea state (SS), and bottom loss (BL). Two modes of operation are proposed. In tracking mode, the software tracks changes in the environmental parameters and sends real-time updates to the s ...
