  3. Internet of Things (IoT) Agent (IoTA) Framework for Evaluating Effectiveness and Efficiency

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly being used to create smart platforms where operators are being removed from the loop. These smart capabilities include collaborative IoT sensors and platforms that are self-aware and provide capabilities of self-prediction, self-configuration, and self-maintenance. To fully take advantage of these advances, however, testbeds and frameworks are needed to ...

  4. An Integrated Materials Informatics/Sequential Learning Framework to Predict the Effects of Defects in Metals Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT013

    In this project, Citrine Informatics and the ADAPT Center at the Colorado School of Mines propose to build an informatics-driven system to understand the effects of defects in additive manufactured parts. The entire history of each sample will be captured on this system; from specific printing parameters and details of precursor materials through to part characterizations and performance measureme ...

  5. Mentoring and Responsive Learning through Intelligent Nautical Skill-modeling, Prompting, Intervention, and Feedback during Instructor-Controlled Exer

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT014

    The safety and operational success of the U.S. Navy (USN) depends on expert navigation, seamanship, and shiphandling skills. Tragically, the Navy experienced four major incidents in 2017. The resulting USN Comprehensive Review identified lapses in basic seamanship and safe navigation skills as contributing factors, reinforcing the critical need for rigorous shiphandling training and proficiency as ...

  6. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using the Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18BT029

    Traditional approaches to accelerated fatigue testing rely on heuristic methods with thresholds based mostly on experience and engineering judgment. These methods generally do not apply to the multiaxial dynamic loading situations characteristic of most aerospace applications and often result in uncharacteristic fatigue damage and failure modes during testing. To overcome the limitations of tradit ...

  7. Evidence-Based, User-Centered Design Process for Improvement of the Utility of the Surface Electronic Warfare Display Suit

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP INC            Topic: N11AT031

    In Naval, surface electronic warfare (EW), visual displays form critical bridges between warfighters and the complex operational radio-frequency (RF) spectrum they must monitor and interpret. Surface electronic warfare operators and supervisors must monitor and interact with multiple, stove-piped display systems in order to perform their work. Further, the visual displays they employ are not desig ...

  8. High Hesitivity Magnetic Materials for Magnetic Toroid and Flat Dipole Antennas

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT001

    Magnetic materials with high hesitivity values are needed to achieve low-profile conformal broadband magnetodielectric antennas with significantly enhanced efficiency in HF-UHF. The higher the hesitivity, the higher the attainable efficiency in these magnetodielectric antennas. State of the art hesitivity as high as 610^6 O/m has been reported in CoZrNb alloy films. Further hesitivity improvement ...

  9. System to Evaluate and Assess Holistic Aircrew Workload (SEAHAWK)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    The Navy is continually developing new technologies to improve warfighting effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading Aircrews cognitive capacities, degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. To meet these requirements, Charles River Analytics conducted a Phase I effort to design a ...

  10. Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N16AT006

    To provide power for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), we propose developing solar cells made using perovskite halide solar absorbers, such as those based upon methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3). Our phase I efforts produced flexible solar cells that exhibited power conversion efficiencies (PCE) of 8.1%, a landmark achievement. The proposed research details how to achieve 20% power conversion ...
