  2. EagleEye Multi-Aperture Airborne FSO Communication System

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N182132

    Point-to-point Free-Space Optical (FSO) communication systems have been demonstrated and are commercially available. Additionally, the technology to develop such systems continue to evolve, such that low cost, compact FSO systems are now a possibility. FSO systems have many desirable attributes for Navy aircraft and surface vessels, especially their ability to operate without RF emissions, their i ...

  3. Free Space Optical Communication Node for Airborne Networks

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N182132

    Toyon Research Corporation is proposing to design and build a free space optical communication relay node to support an airborne mesh network in maritime environments. A single modular communication node consists of many apertures, each aperture dedicated to either transmitting or receiving. The algorithms for topology discovery, pointing and tracking, and beam steering will be developed and imple ...

  4. Underwater Low Noise Acoustic Sensor System

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: N182136

    To address the Navys need for a compact low noise hydrophone sensor for use in sonobuoy array systems, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISI) proposes to develop a novel Underwater Low Noise Acoustic Sensor (ULNAS). It will utilize new piezoelectric single crystal materials with enhanced electromechanical coupling characteristics with high sensitivity and custom-developed low noise preamplifier electron ...

  5. A novel Under Water Acoustic Sensor (UWAS)

    SBC: Chromologic LLC            Topic: N182136

    The U.S. Navy is seeking a low-noise, highly sensitive underwater acoustic sensor. Next-generation sonobuoys require more acoustic sensors packaged into the same fixed volume. Reduction in the volume of piezoelectric materials in an acoustic sensor can pose many challenges, such as increase in susceptibility to thermal noise, and can compromise performance. To address this urgent Navy need, Chromo ...

  6. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: THEOFANOUS & CO            Topic: N182110

    Our problem is to determine whether raindrops can survive the shock environment ahead of missile optical components to a degree that they become a damage concern. An initial assessment made for this proposal indicates that the relevant time scales measure in 5-20 microseconds and the Weber numbers (a measure of breakup regime and intensity) reach out to 2 106. We demonstrate that the relevant brea ...

  7. Cognitive Radar for Maritime/Littoral Surveillance


    Airborne maritime and littoral surveillance radar is facing a growing set of challenges in contested environments due to ever-evolving adversarial technologies and tactics. In addition to potential new evasive tactics, new sophisticated electronic attack (EA) systems are emerging, which further stress the limits of conventional radar architectures. A new approach is required to regain technologica ...

  8. Internal Antireflection Coatings for Aerodynamic Missile Domes

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: N182105

    The use of an antireflection coating can potentially increase the 85% MWIR transparency of polycrystalline alumina ogive missile domes to further transmit IR radiation while protecting the sensor from heat. However, the unique structure of the dome creates a coating challenge for traditionally line of sight physical vapor deposition processes. Additionally, the usage profile dictates high durabili ...

  9. Fleet Materiel Locator Information System (FMLIS)

    SBC: Enterprise Horizon Consulting Group            Topic: N182122

    Enterprise Horizon Consulting Group (EHCG) has teamed with Progeny Systems to design and develop the Fleet Materiel Locator Information System (FMLIS). The system will integrate data from Force Inventory Management Analysis Reporting System (FIMARS), CLMS (Combat Logistics Force Load Management System, One Touch and U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), Integrated Data Environment (IDE) / Glob ...

  10. Optical Engine Bleed Air Detoxification System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N182098

    The Navy is seeking the development of a non-chemical/non-electrical discharge means to break down toxic hydrocarbons in aircraft breathing air systems. To address this need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a novel Optical Engine Bleed Air Detoxification (Opti-BLADE) system based on photolysis and photocatalytic oxidation. This novel combination allows for efficient detoxific ...
