  1. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability-- 18-004

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT002

    The transmission loss (TL) observed by sonar operators can differ significantly from that predicted by Navy models. The long-term objective of the proposed work is to understand why these differences occur and improve the target detection predictive capability of the models. Our approach in Phase I is to analyze bistatic sonar data collected on Navy assets. We will examine both cases with model/da ...

  2. Repurposing Computational Analyses of Tactics for Training Assessments

    SBC: Prevailance, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    Data generated by external sources needs to be consolidated and processed to derive new training scenarios and to recommend new training objectives and measures of performance. The main technical challenges this solution will address are: data from diverse sources must be pre-processed (i.e., validated, cleaned, synchronized) and loaded into a data warehouse; the central data warehouse must have a ...

  3. Next-Generation, Power-Electronics Materials for Naval Aviation Applications

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: N18AT004

    This STTR project develops an innovative seed fabrication technology to address the fundamental size-quality limitation of gallium nitride (GaN) substratesthe indispensable key component for GaN-based vertical high-power devices. Currently, there is no viable GaN technology to realize large-area and low-defect substrates simultaneously. The technology producing 6" and larger GaN wafers results in ...

  4. Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N18AT006

    To meet the U.S. Navy, specifically PMA-201, need for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of concrete, including evaluating its strength, material properties, and damage localization, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University (SIU) propose to develop a novel Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC) system, combining several methods of concrete characterization into a single sensor/software com ...

  5. Non-Destructive Concrete Interrogator and Strength of Materials Correlator

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: N18AT006

    Karagozian & Case Inc. and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Civil Engineering are proposing a Phase I STTR to develop a non-invasive and non-destructive methodology capable of measuring concrete material properties, including relevant spatial and statistical information associated with them, for input to hydrocode models. The solution will be both laboratory and field deployable, w ...

  6. Environmental Temperature Sensing Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  7. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P&J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  8. Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...

  9. Operational Sand and Particulate Sensor System for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Hal Technology, LLC            Topic: N18AT023

    Gas turbine engines with prolonged exposure to sand and dust are susceptible to component and performance degradation and ultimately engine failure. Hal Technology’s proprietary, compact, rugged, flush-mounted, fiber-optic sensor platform measures particulate size, size distributions, and concentration for real-time engine health monitoring. Our proposed sensor will use an innovative hybrid disc ...

  10. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...
