SBC: VESCENT PHOTONICS LLC Topic: N19AT006
Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS LLC Topic: N19AT007
The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: McCoy Consulting, LLC Topic: N19AT007
The objective of this proposed effort is to increase the power and torque density of rotating electric machinery for Naval applications by up to 50%. This aggressive goal will be achieved by developing the novel homopolar AC machine (HAM) topology. This relatively un-studied topology relies on solenoidal field and armature coils, making manufacturing simpler than traditional machines. The HAM elim ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: C MOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N19AT007
Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10’s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies pro ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ENERGIES LLC Topic: N19AT013
The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR prog ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: N19AT016
The Navy has been developing superconducting systems, based on high-temperature superconductors (HTS), for future use on Navy ships. One of the challenges associated with superconducting magnets is the possibility of a quench, which is an event where a local hot spot develops within the superconductor that quickly spreads throughout the device, driving it into its normal and dissipative state. Sen ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
