  1. In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N15AT008

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...

  2. High Fidelity Rotorcraft Towing Modeling and Simulation with Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection System

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N15AT009

    Towing of a Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) system is an important aspect of rotorcraftmaritime operation. The oscillatory rotorcraft combined with the long and flexible towingcable, the low mass ratio of the towed body to the towing aircraft, and the rotor wake effecton the towed body presents a challenge for integration of a modern MAD system withrotorcraft platform. The research objective is t ...

  3. Software Tools for Implementing Speech Agents in Crew Resource Management Training Systems

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: N17AT010

    Crew resource management training systems are often constrained by the high cost and lack of flexibility in coordinating a large groups of human role players for part-task training. Motivated by the recent maturation of the speech synthesis and recognition technologies, speech-enabled crew role-player agents are being introduced to address these limitations. However, difficulties remain in customi ...

  4. Reliable, Safe, Lithium-ion Battery Enabled by a Robust Battery Management System

    SBC: Space Information Laboratories, LLC            Topic: N15AT001

    An advanced Li-Ion Battery Management System for DOD mission and safety critical platforms. The majority of Li-Ion Battery Management Systems (BMS) for DoD aircraft, helicopter, and directed energy weapons are custom designs for the individual Aerospace platform. This leads to increased cost over the battery life cycle due to the requirement to maintain the production facilities which produce repl ...

  5. Visual Tools and Progressive Automation for Complex Knowledge Management and Decision Support

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N17AT004

    We propose to adapt and automate the processes and technologies associated with evidence based decision support to the Navyproviding a tool that can synthesize current cognitive and learning science knowledge and inform decisions so as to maximize the value gained for each training expenditure. We will develop a plug-play architecture that will allow us to make the best use of emerging technologie ...

  6. Multi-Sensor Autonomous Hydrothemal Vent Detection System

    SBC: 10dBx LLC            Topic: N17AT028

    Development of a concept of operations is proposed for autonomous hydrothermal vent detection in a single sortie. The concept involves active sonars (forward looking and swath mapping sonars, plus possibly a 1-2 MHz acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) for measuring midwater turbulence) mounted on a commercial AUV equipped with environmental sensors (e.g., CTD, fluorometer, MAPR-ORP). The AUV ...

  7. Adaptive Optics controlled nonlinear propagation of USLP

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  8. Improved High-Frequency Bottom Loss Characterization

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N17AT026

    We propose development of an improved bottom database suitable for use in the frequency range of 1-10 kHz. Measured transmission loss (TL) and reverberation level (RL) will be jointly processed in building the database. The influence of the rough sea surface, rough seafloor, as well as subbottom heterogeneity will be accounted for during database generation. The rough sea surface will be character ...

  9. Risk-Based Unmanned Air System (UAS) Mission Path Planning Capability

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N17BT034

    In this Phase I Project ACTA and its partners will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a risk-based mission path planning (RB MPP) approach. Areas of interest to the Navy where a RB MPP address critical needs include enabling less restrictive UAS operations within the US National and Foreign Airspaces. The Phase I will demonstrate feasibility with a two-step approach. The first step will dem ...

  10. Cognitive Risk Management for UAS Missions

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N17BT035

    Enabling operators to command and control multiple UAVs will require higher levels of supervisory control, enabling vehicles to operate autonomously during larger portions of each mission. For the foreseeable future, however, critical portions of each mission will require operators to apply their superior knowledge, judgment, and skills to assess the situation, monitor execution more closely and, ...
