The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC Topic: N18AT026
Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial IntelligenceSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: N18BT033
Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: KARAGOZIAN & CASE, INC. Topic: N18AT006
Karagozian & Case Inc. and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Civil Engineering are proposing a Phase I STTR to develop a non-invasive and non-destructive methodology capable of measuring concrete material properties, including relevant spatial and statistical information associated with them, for input to hydrocode models. The solution will be both laboratory and field deployable, w ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAKAI OCEAN ENGINEERING INC Topic: N18AT017
The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: P & J ROBINSON CORP Topic: N18AT018
Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N18AT021
Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
An Integrated Materials Informatics/Sequential Learning Framework to Predict the Effects of Defects in Metals Additive ManufacturingSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N18AT009
The US Navy operates a vast fleet of combat and support vessels with complex power control systems under the control and decision authority of human operators. Several current resources such as SPY-1D radar and Vertical Launch System (VLS) and future resources such as railgun, AMDR, and high energy laser (HEL) are energy hungry, exceeding current and planned power generation capability when deploy ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
