  1. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  2. High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel Efficiency

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    Waste heat from Naval diesel generators provides significant opportunity to introduce organic Rankine cycles (ORC) to increase their fuel efficiency. The objective of the proposed effort is to design and demonstrate a high-speed, spinning scroll expander (HiSSSE) ORC as a power dense waste heat recovery system for diesel generators on ships. The system will leverage Air Squared’s spinning scroll ...

  3. Compact Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation System

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N19AT013

    The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR prog ...

  4. Seamless Wireless Charging of Micro and Small Unmanned Aerial System Through Local Power Transmission Infrastructure

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N19AT019

    Wireless charging of unmanned aerial system (UAS) platforms from the environment has the potential to greatly increase flight and mission times. A promising option is to use electromagnetic fields from the power transmission infrastructure as an energy source. EH Group and the University of Alabama propose a design for UAS wireless charging in the near-field environment of the commercial power tra ...

  5. Data Analytics and Machine Learning Toolkit to Accelerate Materials Design and Processing Development

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19AT020

    Navy has identified refractory high entropy alloy (RHEA) and metal additive manufacturing as two potential areas of interest. This includes designing new RHEA and optimizing metal additive manufacturing with specific material property requirements. Developing materials and processes via applying traditional experimentation and process optimization techniques is painfully slow due to the large numb ...

  6. Cervical Spine Health Improvement Products

    SBC: Switchbox, Inc.            Topic: DHP18B001

    Most standard-of-care tools and techniques for evaluating neck disorders are subjective, unreliable, and do not provide actionable information for providers, payers, and organizations to deliver efficient and effective care. This lack of objective neck he

  7. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  9. Advanced Ship-handling Simulators

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: N18AT014

    There is a need to create an automated, adaptive, real time coaching module that can integrate the Conning Officer Virtual Environment (COVE) along with the associated Intelligent Tutor System (COVE-ITS) and the Conning-Officer Ship Handling Assessment (COSA) together. By automating the evaluation process, Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs) will have the opportunity to use the COVE simulations more f ...

  10. New Integrated Total Design of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) Propulsion System Architecture for Higher Efficiency and Low Noise

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N18AT012

    In this proposal, a meta model-based scaling law will be used to represent each system component. A components meta model-based scaling law describes the tradeoffs between performance metrics for that component or subsystem as a function of its ratings in relation to the system. This greatly reduces the number of degrees of freedom for each component, and at the same time, retains the information ...
