SBC: VALOR ROBOTICS, LLC Topic: N19AT011
The objective of the Phase I proposal is to investigate the application of controlled cavitation cleaning technology in conjunction with gecko-inspired mechanical adhesion and soft elastomeric applicators for use in non-intrusive EOD operations. This investigation requires the proof-of-concept testing and validation of a controlled cavitation cleaning mechanism, and a soft robotic gecko-inspired m ...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
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 SCIENCES INC Topic: N19AT015
Accurate characterization of and propagation modeling through the Marine Boundary Layer is critical for maximizing Electro-Magnetic (EM) systems signal exploitation for naval asset offensive, defensive, and stealth operational performance. Strong temperature and humidity gradients in the Surface Boundary Layer lead to optical paths exhibiting Electro-Optic Infrared (EOIR) anomalous refraction and ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Interlaminar Reinforcement of Composite Rotorcraft Components via Tailored Nanomorphologies of Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (A-CNTs)SBC: METIS DESIGN CORP Topic: N19AT003
Composites are often used in aerospace applications due to their superior specific strength and stiffness properties, as well as their resistance to fatigue and corrosion. In particular for rotorcraft, composites offer additional benefits for their versatility in tailoring material properties for such components as rotor blades. However, rotors introduce additional challenges by including multiple ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: N12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: N19AT003
Vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) will be selectively applied at interfaces in laminated composite structures to effect locally the mechanical properties that limit rotorcraft structures, such as fatigue and damage tolerance. In Phase I this work will quantify these effects in CFRP and CFRP/GFRP hybrid coupons. The VACNT material will be transferred directly onto prepreg plies, but also ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: BLUERISC INC Topic: N19AT018
BlueRISC's proposed solution takes the form of an automated toolkit that is able to analyze an FPGA bitstream with respect to exploitability. The solution relies on an FPGA-agnostic framework for automatically reverse-engineering an FPGA-bitstream into an intermediate representation (IR). This IR is FPGA agnostic and enables a program-analytic framework for extracting a fundamental FPGA-centric Vu ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Seamless Wireless Charging of Micro and Small Unmanned Aerial System Through Local Power Transmission InfrastructureSBC: EH GROUP INC Topic: N19AT019
Wireless charging of unmanned aerial system (UAS) platforms from the environment has the potential to greatly increase flight and mission times. A promising option is to use electromagnetic fields from the power transmission infrastructure as an energy source. EH Group and the University of Alabama propose a design for UAS wireless charging in the near-field environment of the commercial power tra ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Data Analytics and Machine Learning Toolkit to Accelerate Materials Design and Processing DevelopmentSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: N19AT020
Navy has identified refractory high entropy alloy (RHEA) and metal additive manufacturing as two potential areas of interest. This includes designing new RHEA and optimizing metal additive manufacturing with specific material property requirements. Developing materials and processes via applying traditional experimentation and process optimization techniques is painfully slow due to the large numb ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: N19AT021
We propose to design and build the Cyber Adversary Discovery Engine (CADE) for forensic cyber analysis. CADE combines expressive behavioral modeling technology with machine learning to automatically recognize adversary behaviors, goals and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs). CADE can further automatically recognize changes in adversary TTPs that occur in forensic data. A key technical capab ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
