  1. Hybrid, Ultra-High-Speed, High Efficiency, Power Dense, Electronically Controlled Energy Conversion Unit for Ship Systems, Unmanned Vehicles, and Robo

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: N13AT028

    The Navy seeks to develop new, innovative motor/generator technologies that can effectively operate at speeds up to 1,000 kRPM at power densities of 40 kW/kg (excluding heat exchanger) with an overall system efficiency of 95% or better. Such a motor/generator will have a wide range of applications, i.e. it can be used as the core building block of a very lightweight electrical energy storage syste ...

  2. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, global scene statistics and object co-occurrence. Machin ...

  3. Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air Traffic

    SBC: RDRTEC INCORPORATED            Topic: N13AT003

    Air-Borne Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) cooperative sensors like TCAS and ADS-B are non-developmental off-the-shelf items and as such their employment should be optimized to maximize their effect on levels of safety. The radar subsystem is a new construct whose role and employment has not been previously defined. In addition, the cost of the radar development and production costs are high and dependent ...

  4. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: OSD12T04

    Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...

  5. A Multiscale Modeling and Simulation Framework for Predicting After-Burning Effects from Non-Ideal Explosives

    SBC: REACTION ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N10AT002

    The objective of the proposed Phase II STTR effort is to develop a validated computational tool to predict the afterburning of non-ideal munitions containing metal and hydrocarbon fuels. The activities outlined devise a well-coordinated collaboration among researchers from Reaction Engineering International (REI) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). The activities proposed will bu ...

  6. APEX: Adaptive and Peripheral surveillance fusion Engine

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: N05T019

    It is computationally infeasible to implement a complete Level 2/3-fusion solution that has detailed knowledge of all parts of an area of interest all the time. A staged approach is needed where the first stage implements a real time peripheral vision sensor analysis to identify asymmetric threats. The second stage implements a “foveal vision” sensor analysis that identifies, links and valid ...

  7. Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell-Power Generator (PJF-Gen)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N05T016

    Altex Technologies Corporation, a small business, and Pennsylvania State University, a research institution, have teamed up to develop the innovative Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell Power Generator (PJF-Gen). The 500-1000 watts system will be lightweight, the size of a lunch box, will reliably operate on JP-8 and start fast, thereby meeting all Navy requirements. This is achieved by using ...

  8. Advanced Flywheel Energy Storage for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: CALNETIX            Topic: N04T013

    During the NAVY STTR Phase II Calnetix will further develop its concept of advanced flywheel system proposed in Phase I and will demonstrate the validity of the underlying principles through building and testing a system prototype. This prototype will be a fully functional system capable of supporting up to 2MW of pulse power with the ability of producing 500kW (30 seconds) loads in high-duty-cyc ...

  9. Adaptive Space-Time Radar Techniques and Waveforms

    SBC: CHIRP CORP.            Topic: N04T007

    The problem is to improve airborne maritime radar detection of small moving targets in clutter, where the clutter varies with time, range, azimuth, sea state, grazing angle, wind speed, and the look direction of the radar relative to the wind direction. A new version of space-time adaptive processing (STAP) is applied to the problem. The new technique provides improved covariance estimation for ...

  10. A Novel Single Sideband Suppressed-Carrier (SSB-SC) Technique for High Dynamic Range Analog Applications

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N05T008

    Photonic links and networks offer numerous advantages to analog RF systems, and enable advanced performance in Naval aircraft analog RF systems: spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) exceeding 125 dB/Hz^2/3 with instantaneous bandwidth up to and exceeding 1GHz for operational frequencies from 0.1 to 20 GHz. IPITEK proposes a novel single sideband suppressed-carrier (SSB-SC) technique that offers a ...
