  1. Reduced Cost Fabrication of Optical Sapphire Hyper-hemispheres for Submarine Masts

    SBC: ADOLF MELLER COMPANY            Topic: N161036

    The objective of the proposal is to reduce the cost of fabrication of sapphire optical hyper-hemispheres for submarine masts. Due to the nature of sapphire, deriving complex geometries from grown boules using current conventional fabrication techniques is one of the major contributors to cost. Removing excess material requires long diamond grinding cycles. New advances in ultrasonics have been inc ...

  3. Many Octave, Ultra-Sensitive Low Frequency Receivers

    SBC: XCelerICs, LLC            Topic: N162122

    The proposal aims at developing super-resolution (26-bits) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) having an instantaneous bandwidth of 20 MHz by using "derivative-sampling" that breaks the Shannon-Nyquist criteria of sampling. Derivative sampling would sample the signal and its higher-order derivatives at sub-Nyquist to achieve larger bandwidth and resolution. The sub-Nyquist samples of the signals a ...

  4. Ceramic Matrix Composites for Advanced Tactical Missile Radomes

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N131056

    Advanced missile radomes require robust high temperature materials for high speed flight. Current advanced radome materials are limited by thermal, electrical, and impact performance. ATFI has developed an oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) which has demonstrated required electrical, thermal and structural performance. This proposal will focus on improved impact performance, as well as incorpora ...

  5. Affordable Manufacturing of Refractory Metal Components

    SBC: SCIAKY, INC.            Topic: N142125

    Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) is a layer additive manufacturing technology capable of producing refractory metal (C103, Ta-10W) components from a computer generated 3D CAD model. These near net shaped preforms utilize significantly less material and require substantially less machining than the current process being used.

  6. Spherical Piezocrystal Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N122142

    We propose the continued design, development and testing of spherical piezocrystal transducers and supporting technology including our gyroid transducer. The Phase II effort covers the modeling and demonstration of the gyroid transducer and comparison of performance with several piezocrystal and piezoceramic materials and testing in realistic environment. The electroacoustic performance will be es ...

  7. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: High Rez Consulting, LLC            Topic: N16AT018

    Geometrically constrained underwater environments abrogate the simplifying acoustic modeling assumption that energy can be modeled in a two-dimensional vertical plane. In these environments, current tools to perform navigation and passive and/or active sonar mission planning are inadequate. Furthermore, channel complexity makes it difficult to model acoustic communications. HRC proposes to upgrade ...

  8. Integrated Computational Material Engineering Tool Set for Additive Manufacturing of Stainless Steel (316L)

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N16AT022

    In this Phase I STTR program, QuesTek Innovations, a leader in the field of integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) teaming with Prof. W.E. King from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as QuesTeks academic partner, proposes expand the computational Materials by Design technology by developing an Integrated Model Toolkit that enables the modeling of AM process by predicting ...

  9. Sacrificial Fiber Anisotropic Recuperator (SFAR)

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: N161062

    The mass and cost of low temperature Joule-Thomson and Brayton cryocoolers can be greatly reduced with a better recuperator configuration. CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (LMSSC) propose to develop a robust, anisotropic recuperative heat exchanger capable of excellent heat exchange efficiency with low cost and low mass. This technology relies on 3D weaving ...
