  1. Additive Manufacturing Technology for Sonobuoy Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N171010

    Advances in Additive Manufacturing (AM) have enabled the possibility of incorporating printed components into full-scale production lines. Triton Systems will provide a feasibility study detailing the potential cost savings, performance benefits, and production flexibility that could be achieved through use of AM in the full-scale manufacturing process for Navy sonobuoys.

  2. ADDMIRE: Automating Design Decisions for Mixed Reality Learning Environments

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N171092

    Mixed Reality (MR) technologies can create realistic and engaging learning environments by merging real and computer-generated elements into a single space. However, the use of such technologies does not guarantee effective learning. In fact, the inappropriate selection or implementation of technologies can hinder learning (Appleman, 2005; Bransford, 2000). Unfortunately, there are no design suppo ...

  3. Advanced Autonomous Securing Vehicle (AASV) System Phase II

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N07026

    The current procedure for securing aircraft to a Navy flight deck is both manpower intensive, as measured in “blue-shirt billets”, and equipment intensive, requiring up to eighteen TD-1B chain tie downs per aircraft. As emerging Navy trends and tactics move towards reduced shipboard manpower and increased reliance on unmanned assets, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) introduces a pathway to new te ...

  4. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Hypersonic Signatures

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    Karagozian & Case, Inc. (K&C) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will develop a re-usable, cost-effective, and accurate dynamic characterization methodology capable of measuring the dynamic material properties of various materials of interest under very high strain rates. Materials property data for various ductile materials (e.g., steel and aluminum) are required as input to f ...

  6. Advanced Cooling for Satellite Communications On-the-Move Antennas

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A08106

    Aspen Systems Inc. proposes to develop a proprietary antenna cooling system for Satellite Communications on-the-move (SATCOM OTM) applications. This system will replace an existing thermal control unit with a lighter and higher performance system designed to keep the antenna electronics cooler than existing systems and cooler than ambient. The system will consist of a series of heat exchangers i ...

  7. Advanced Direct Energy Conversion for Power Electronics Cooling

    SBC: WMK TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N07206

    A new metal matrix composite material consisting of natural graphite particulates processed into a designed reinforcement architecture that, after pressure infiltration casting with molten Al alloy, results in materials with thermal conductivity (TC) controllable over a range of 600 to 750 W/mK and thermal expansion controllable over the range of 7 to 3 ppm/K. This material is proposed as a spread ...
