  1. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    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 ...

  2. High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel Efficiency

    SBC: 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 ...

  3. Novel Development of an Intelligent Quench Detection (QD) Method for HTS Coils

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N19AT016

    Energy to Power Solutions (e2P) has teamed with quench detection (QD) expert Dr. Yuri Lvovsky (retired GE), Dr. Sastry Pamidi of the Center for Advanced Power Systems (FSU-CAPS), and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) to design, fabricate, and test a robust, reliable, and low cost QD system. e2P’s proposed system is a vastly different quench avoidance system that will provide multiple le ...

  4. Monolithic Beam-Combined Mid-Infrared Laser Array

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N11AT011

    Monolithic surface-emitting (SE) semiconductor lasers hold promise for significant advantages over edge-emitting lasers in terms of both reliable operation, scaling the CW single-mode output powers into the multi-watt range, and manufacturing cost. Grating-coupled (GC) surface emitters offer a path to achieving single-spatial-mode, single-frequency CW operation, with the added advantage that relat ...

  5. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: Alphamicron, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT003

    The team of AlphaMicron Inc. and Kent State University proposes a novel LC technology, the dynamic polarizer, as a light control system for Battlefield Airmen and Pilots. The dynamic polarizer technology shares the performance capabilities of AlphaMicron’s e-Tint LC light control technology: instantaneously fails-to-clear, millisecond switching times, and customizable tint and color. Howeve ...

  6. Multiphysics Modeling of Dynamic Combustion Processes Using Pareto-Efficient Combustion Framework

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: AF18BT010

    The objective is to develop zonal multi-physics capability for turbulent combustion simulations. The foundation of the proposed work is a novel Pareto-Efficient Combustion (PEC) framework for fidelity-adaptive combustion modeling. The PEC model utilizes a combustion submodel assignment, combining the low-cost flamelet-based models with the more expensive finite rate chemistry models where necessar ...

  7. PRIME: PRimary Integration and Maturation of EGS

    SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY            Topic: AF18BT012

    Legacy satellite command and control capabilities and their related telemetry operate in a largely stove piped framework. Satellites are still commanded, controlled, and communicated with their ground station in a specific constellation structure. Each ground station is unique to a given constellation and the communications and telemetry are aligned to the specific constellation, underscoring an o ...

  8. Rapid Nondestructive Inspection of Traditionally Uninspectable Adhesively-Filled Composite Joints

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: AF18BT016

    NDI of composite Pi/T-Joints presents significant challenges to existing inspection technologies resulting in a barrier to implementation in production. We will investigate feasibility of developing an active thermography NDI solution for real-world inspection of composite structures with T / Pi- joints during the manufacturing process (both green and cured states). Based on the extensive experien ...

  9. Remote Sensing System for Monitoring Cardiopulmonary Signals

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: AF19AT003

    Virtual EM and Case Western Reserve University are teaming to propose a standoff cardiopulmonary sensing technology to aid remote monitoring of airman and others ' physiological state of health both in the field and in the office environments. While the pulmonary sensing unit could be operated meters away, the cardio signals are picked up in closer proximity to the body.

  10. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...
