SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. Topic: N15AT010
Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control ConditionsSBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N15AT014
SA Photonics has developed a concept for our Multiple Optical Beam Landing System (MOBLS) to provide autonomous landing of aircraft in RF denied environments. MOBLS utilizes multiple, redundant methods to determine the real-time location and bearing of the aircraft relative to the carrier-based landing strip. By having built in redundant modalities, MOBLS provides highly reliable landing informati ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC. Topic: N16AT018
Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N16AT024
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SOCRATES free space optical communication and sensing system featuring the Photonic Optical Multicast Mast Unit (POMMU). SOCRATES enables 360 degree multicast capability of high bandwidth communication in addition to threat search and tracking capability. SA Photonics will team with Prof. Michael Kudenov at North Carolina State University who will investigate ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF16AT03
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is a new technology that can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensor ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC. Topic: AF17AT018
Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
Integrated Fiber-Optic Sensor Reliability Modeling and Analysis Tools for Thermal and Power Management Systems for Gas Turbine EnginesSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT16
Addressing a key technology gap in deployment of fiber-optic sensor networks, IFOS and multidisciplinary collaborators are developing an integrated fiber-optic component reliability modeling software toolkit. The RelOptics toolkits analytical engine is based upon predictive failure models developed for the first time in aerospace industry via rigorous environmental testing of optical fiber splices ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
Intelligent and Multiplexable Ultra-High Temperature Fiber Optic Pressure Sensors for Robust Distributed Engine ControlSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT18
Engines will be getting smaller and hotter for efficiency reasons, requiring novel sensors with extended and enhanced performance. Emerging fiber-optic sensing approaches could provide a unique solution to the widening technology gap between next-gen engine requirements and conventional sensors limited capabilities. The overall objective of this program is to develop techniques to integrate new pr ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Arete Associates Topic: A17AT020
Historically, the monitoring and detection of biological threats has been carried out via the deployment of high sensitivity / high complexity monitoring nodes to insure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate. Unfortunately, this detection strategy has inherent limits with respect to coverage and response due to its high deployment/support costs, mandating a new approach to environ ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: A15AT013
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is vulnerable to radio-frequency (RF) sources of interference and must be defended through electronic protection (EP) measures such as anti-jam (AJ) and anti-spoof (AS). The Phase I effort investigated antenna, electronic, and algorithmic designs for systems capable of supporting direction-finding (DF) measurements while simultaneously performing anti-jam and an ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseArmy
