  1. Wideband Multi-Channel AESA Manifolds

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: N101020

    Multi-channel array manifolds are required for wideband AESA applications. In modern solid-state AESA arrays, MMIC-based T/R modules generally utilize digitally-controlled phased shifters to steer the beam on transmit and receive. The given phase value is only accurate at one frequency, and so for wide bandwidths of several hundred MHz (at X-band for example), the beam does not get formed properly ...

  2. Power-Efficient Adaptive-and-Robust Link OFDM (PEARL-OFDM)

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: N093218

    Key obstacles to extending OFDM to wireless links and networks at high-frequencies and dynamic channels are inherent low performance to Doppler and power amplifiers operation with high back-off. Other significant obstacles are multipath and impulsive noise. PEARL-OFDM combines a layered architecture with technologies that mitigate such obstacles and enable full-range rates that maximizes connectiv ...

  3. Materials and Device Modeling to Reduce Cost and Time to Exploit Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals in Navy SONAR Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N08061

    We propose the development of a compact broadband underwater cylindrical transducers with integrated tuning networks and power amplifiers for Mobile Acoustic Counter Measures. There is a need for cost effective transducers that are broadband and have broad-beam coverage. BTech has designed and built improved counter measure transducers as well as acoustic modem transducers using both PZT materials ...

  4. Cost-Effective PiezoCrystal Transducer Assembly Technologies

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N101092

    The design and development of piezocrystal sonar transducers is a challenging multidisciplinary and technological effort that spans many fields and skill sets. We look to extend and improve our transducer assembly technologies to reduce cost and implementation time for sonar technology transition and in particular our methods for Active-Passive single crystal ring development and fiber glass wrapp ...

  5. Multi-Mechanistic Cosmetic Coating to Protect Skin from Thermal Injury

    SBC: SCIGENESIS, LLC            Topic: A08183

    SciGenesis will optimize the multi-mechanistic thermally protective cosmetic coating developed during our Phase I efforts in order to maximize thermal protection and impart optimum spreadability, coverage, and stability. The optimized prototype will then become the base formulation for research to deter material transfer, promote water resistance and removability, improve wearability, meet color ...

  6. Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Development

    SBC: SCIGENESIS, LLC            Topic: N08187

    In this Phase I, SciGenesis is adapting adhesive materials and techniques from our current adhesive projects to the development of a pressure sensitive adhesive that will meet rigorous NAVAIR requirements for military appliqué coatings. Our group has successfully incorporated stimuli-responsive characteristics to adhesive films, and when adapted to the proposed SBIR project will allow for the adv ...

  7. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distribution to then ...

  8. Forward Bathymetry and Obstacle Avoidance Sensing for Safe High Speed Boat Operation Using 3D Forward Looking Sonar

    SBC: FARSOUNDER, INC.            Topic: N101077

    In order to improve the safety and efficiency of navy high speed small boat operations, FarSounder proposes a 3-dimensional, forward looking sonar solution capable of simultaneous bathymetry sensing and obstacle detection out to ranges of at least 1640 ft (500m). Additionally, the system will be cable of 50 knot operation and suitable for installation on a high speed planing vessel such as common ...

  9. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    UARS (Unexploded ordnance Asset RFID System) is a secure, active radio frequency identification (RFID) system that when equipped to munitions provides a method for underground geolocation in the event that munitions do not explode. Additionally UARS provides a method for authenticated wireless inventory of munitions in storage. UARS is comprised of rugged, long-life, queriable RFID tags that ar ...

  10. Space and Operational Environmental Protection for Thin Multijunction Solar Cells

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF093092

    The recent development of colorless, transparent polyimides provides a break-out solution for the operational and environmental protection of thin multijunction solar cells. The incorporation of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes into the polyimide backbone renders these systems radiation hard toward proton, electron and atomic oxygen degradation. The POSS polyimides also exhibit 5x improved im ...
