SBC: GRAMMATECH INC Topic: N19AT018
Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are becoming increasingly critical components in advanced electronic systems. However, limited research has been applied to identifying critical vulnerabilities that could be present in the designs deployed on these FPGAs. The risk is further increased by the use of 3rd party intellectual property in many designs.GrammaTech is proposing to develop a Trust ver ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: METRON INCORPORATED Topic: N19AT017
Metron and Northeastern University propose to design, develop, and validate a proof-of-concept predictive Graph Convolutional Network (GCN) capability using open source Reddit and GDELT data. We propose: (1) to extract and preprocess open-source Reddit and GDELT data, (2) to design a predictive graph convolutional neural network model, (3) to implement and train that model, and (4) to validate the ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: METRON INCORPORATED Topic: N19AT022
In Phase I, Metron and the University of Miami (UM) propose to develop a theoretic reduction of dynamics framework applicable to the prediction of oceanographic fields in geophysical fluid dynamic models for use onboard unmanned platforms. Our approach leverages, extends and combines modern advances in the renormalization group and Bayesian probability combined with fluid dynamics modeling and for ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: APPLIED OCEAN SCIENCES, LLC Topic: N19AT022
This project delivers a system to assess local uncertainties and track the evolution of the maritime environment around unmanned platforms at sea. The system uses Navy ocean forecasts for initial environmental guesses and outlooks and implements a Reduced Order Model (ROM) derived from Dynamically Orthogonal (DO) solutions to deliver a local uncertainty picture (for the next 24-48 hours). The ROM- ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: NANOSONIC INC. Topic: N19AT019
NanoSonic will work with Penn State to develop, demonstrate and manufacture materials and systems to allow unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to scavenge magnetic field energy from electric power lines and operate continuously in the field. NanoSonic will work with energy harvesting researcher Dr. Shashank Priya and a major US aerospace company to design, fabricate and demonstrate a prototype system ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel EfficiencySBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS Inc Topic: N19AT007
The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: IRGLARE LLC Topic: N19AT004
The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
