  1. Multi-material Additive Manufacturing of RF Electronics

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c) military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space.To accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components.For the case of radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems this will requi ...

  2. Multimodal Non- destructive Evaluation of Internal Surfaces of Holes in Steel Structures

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A16012

    A bore evacuator is generally used in gun barrel of armored fighting vehicles to help prevent poisonous propellant gases from venting back into the fighting compartment. It consists of a ring of holes drilled into the barrel, surrounded by a cylindrical pressure reservoir. Under typical operating conditions, pitting corrosions and stress corrosion cracks can form in the inner walls of those drille ...

  3. Accurate Position Location Information in GPS-Denied Forests and Jungle Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A16031

    Maintaining accurate position location information (PLI) during operational missions is a critical requirement for the dismounted soldier.This requirement is unmet in heavily forested and jungle environments where GPS reception is unavailable due to dense canopy cover.In such environments, soldiers must determine their location by using visual landmarks, or by seeking open clearings where GPS rece ...

  4. Innovative X-Band Antenna Architecture for BFT 3

    SBC: AMI RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, LLC            Topic: A16032

    AMI Research and Development, LLC (AMI), and our small business commercialization partner Mercury Systems, Inc.,propose a novel Passive Electronically Scanned Array (PESA) antenna to bridge the gap between high cost-high performance and low cost-medium performance antenna systems to meet the need forhigh volume phased array antennas for X-Band Satcom-On-The-Move (SOTM) Blue Force Tracking (BFT) ap ...

  5. A Small Passively Cooled Inverter

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A16088

    While many DC AC inverters are available on the market, inefficiency and legacy semiconductor technologies require active thermal management and large package sizes.Creare proposes to develop a very small and passively cooled inverter that reduces size while improving efficiency and reliability.During Phase I, we will develop a conceptual design and demonstrate key aspects with targeted laboratory ...

  6. Performance and Cost Optimization of an Advanced Lift Fan Blade for Hovercraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152100

    Lift fan efficiency, noise, and life cycle cost all impact mission capabilities of the Navys next-generation landing hovercraft, the Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC). Improving efficiency will increase the SSCs endurance and range, reduced noise will improve environmental conditions for personnel on the craft, and minimizing life cycle cost will reduce the overall operational expenses for the SSC pro ...

  7. Robust Catapult Launch Control Electronics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N161014

    Aircraft carrier control systems rely upon many sensors and signal processors to ensure safe and efficient aircraft launch and recovery. As one example subsystem, Digital End Speed Indicators (DESI) use reluctance sensors mounted within the catapult trough to determine aircraft end-speed during launch. The DESI was developed in the 1980s, and recent reliability problems have highlighted the need f ...

  8. Development of a Miniaturized and Autonomous Vacuum Maintenance System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N161024

    Legacy copper-based power distribution and degaussing cables will not be able to meet the future requirements of Navy ships and submarines. While cable systems employing high temperature superconductors (HTS) have the potential to meet this need, further development work is required to improve the performance and increase the technology readiness level of key system components. The proposed work f ...

  9. Recuperator for SWaP-C Sensitive Cryocooler Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N161062

    Superconducting radiofrequency receivers, optical absorption energy sensors, and quantum computers have the potential to revolutionize digital communications for UAVs and satellites. Development of low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) cryocooler technology is essential since these communication systems must operate at cryogenic temperatures. An attractive cryocooler option for these applicat ...

  10. A Novel System for Ship Structure Crack Arrest and Repair

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N161069

    The new high-speed aluminum vessels in use by the Navy are designed to preclude crack initiation; however, experience with aluminum structures has demonstrated that plate cracking will occur and grow at an accelerated pace compared to other metals. Permanent repairs are expensive, time consuming, and hence, not feasible for the shipboard environment. The processes that represent the state-of-the-a ...
