  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. Marking System for Durable Labeling of Munitions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A18077

    Hand grenades require highly legible, long-lived identification markings that are resistant to wear and field chemicals. Creating such markings on grenades is challenging, especially when their surfaces are rounded and made of chemically resistant plastics. Creare proposes to develop an additive marking process capable of producing robust color markings on curved plastic surfaces with high resolut ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
