  1. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...

  2. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems

    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 ...

  4. Control & Optimization of Multiple Illumination Characteristics (COMIC) of A Pulsed Fiber Array Laser System For Active Imaging Through Fog

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N18AT021

    Degraded weather conditions particularly, dense maritime fog, reduces the US Fleet EO/IR systems ability to maintain situational awareness and detect/identify and track targets of interest. It is the Navys goal to develop an active EO/IR imaging system that jointly optimizes illumination source properties and implements advanced image processing to improve performance and operational range of curr ...

  5. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    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 ...

  6. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations, and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms’ networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the proce ...

  7. High Throughput Static and Dynamic Testing of AM Materials for Uncertainty Quantification and Qualification

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N18AT028

    Qualification of additively manufactured parts is hampered by the inherent uncetainty in properties due to heterogeneity in processing, microstructure, and defects. The proposed effort combines high-throughput testing of static and dynamic properties using tailored sample geometry, fixture design, and load application method with microstructure quantification and analysis. This system will drastic ...

  8. Compact Thermal Management System for Laser Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N18AT001

    The use of laser technologies and high-power electronics is rapidly being incorporated into tactical platforms for imaging, target designation, and range finding. Electronic equipment including lasers demand power from a tactical aircraft and produce large amounts of thermal energy as a waste product. Current thermal management technologies will not be sufficient for future aircraft as thermal man ...

  9. Laser Additive Manufacturing of Seven Thousand Series Aluminum Aircraft Components (LAM-STAAC)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N18AT005

    Alloys of aluminum in the 7000 series are known to have good weight, strength, and fatigue properties and are commonly used in Naval aircraft components. Recent manufacturing trends are increasingly focused on additive manufacturing (AM) methods as a way to reduce lead time, cost, and to improve part performance. Current additive manufacturing techniques are unable to fabricate parts in 7000 serie ...
