A Hierarchical and Extendable, Component-Based Simulation Tool for Aircraft Thermal Management SystemsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: N19BT025
The requirements for thermal management on tactical aircraft systems have reached a level at which integrated system design must be considered early in the aircraft design process. An integrated propulsion, power and thermal modeling and simulation design approach is necessary for reduced size, weight and power requirements. At the same time, there is an urgent need for capabilities that enable an ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N19BT027
Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc. Topic: N19BT027
Accurate prediction heat transfer in gas turbine components subject to cooling requires high fidelity modeling of heat transfer in the presence of high Reynolds number turbulent flow. The cooling internal to the blades results in sustained temperature gradients within the structural parts, from low temperature in the interior of the structure to increasingly higher temperature closer to the surfac ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc. Topic: N19BT029
Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
AI-Driven, Secure Navy Mission Planning via Deep Reinforcement Learning and Attribute-Based Multi-Level SecuritySBC: EH GROUP INC Topic: N19BT029
Current mission planning systems allow strike planners and operations centers to perform time-sensitive strike planning, execution monitoring, and validate mission effects using XML-based tools that visualize time critical attack plan and track plan status vs. execution. In this proposed STTR Phase I design for the Next Generation Navy Mission Planning (NGNMPS) system, we will identify expanded op ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
HIGH STRENGTH, WATER-FILLED CERAMIC NANOCOMPOSITE MICROCAPSULES WITH LOW PERMEABILITY FOR SELF-SEALING FUEL BLADDERSSBC: NANOSONIC INC. Topic: N19BT030
During the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and synthesize innovative, high strength ceramic nanocomposite microcapsules filled with > 80 volume percent water that are empirically optimized to function as readily dispersed powdered additives with long-term water retention, durability during air craft bladder production, and rupture during ballistic shock. NanoSon ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED Topic: N19BT030
The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
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 group 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 customiz ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: QUSPIN INC. Topic: N17AT013
Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ULTIMARA INC Topic: N17AT001
The goal of this program is to develop and construct a thin, light weight, low power, large aperture, electro-optic (EO) transmissive scanner that utilizes electro-optically active nanomaterial structures, suitable for UAV’s platform. The nano-material beam-steering technology aperture system offers an ultra-thin Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) to fit on UAV’s airframe and achieve ultrafast and ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
