  1. Innovative Physics-based Modeling Tool for Application to Passive Radio Frequency Identification System on Rotorcraft

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N15AT005

    Tracking dynamic components of rotorcraft is crucial to component life assessment and overall fleet management. The Navy is pursuing an effort to collect the component information directly off the aircraft through the use of passive RFID (pRFID) tags and a novel reader/gateway system to communicate with the ground station. Finding an optimum pRFID tag/antenna reader system arrangement without a co ...

  2. Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) Aerodynamic Modeling and Simulation for Rotary Wing Platforms

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: N15AT009

    The Area-I team proposes to leverage its expertise and extensive design, analysis, and simulation tools to evaluate the design space of towed magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) systems with the goal of understanding the design trends and requirements in developing a new, lightweight rotorcraft-towed anti-submarine warfare (ASW) system that is optimized to take advantage of smaller state-of-the-art M ...

  3. Experimental Noise Measurement System for Ship Sonar Design

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N15AT015

    Hull mounted sensor arrays are an important tool used to determine localized threat assessment. The location of these arrays on the ship is critical. They must be placed at the quietest location on the hull to minimize own-ship noise which can interfere with array sensitivity. To determine these quiet locations, Adaptive Methods has proposed incorporating vector sensing modules which can be tempor ...

  4. Hybrid High Ampacity Electric Power Cable

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N15AT016

    The Navy is interested in developing hybrid superconducting power transmission cables that would carry at least 5 kA of current and have a current density of at least 35 MA/m2. The cable should be able to carry 30 % of the rated current even when the superconducting cable fails. We propose to develop a hybrid superconducting cable, based on CORC cables, which potentially have a current density of ...

  5. Semiconductor Nanomembrane based Sensors for High Frequency Pressure Measurements

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF13AT15

    This Air Force Phase II STTR program would develop low-cost semiconductor nanomembrane (NM) based high frequency pressure sensors, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM techniques in combination with our nanocomposite materials. Such low-modulus, conformal nanomembrane sensor skins with integrated interconnect elements and electronic devices can be applied to new or existing wind tunnel models for f ...

  6. The Terabit Optical COMMunications (TOCOMM) System

    SBC: R-DEX Systems, Inc            Topic: AF14AT02

    ABSTRACT: R-DEX Systems proposes to develop the Terabit Optical COMMunications (TOCOMM) System to radically improve airborne Free-Space Optical (FSO) communications. TOCOMM will combine proven spatial, spectral, and polarization multiplexing, advanced coding and channel equalization, advanced optics, advanced laser communications and state-of-the-art pointing, acquisition and tracking (PAT) tech ...

  7. Wide-Band Arbitrary Waveform Generator (WAWG)


    ABSTRACT: We propose to design, test, and build an arbitrary waveform generator based on a novel direct digital synthesizer (DDS) approach. Our design is grounded in prior work but introduces several novel techniques for achieving the large dynamic range required by the Air Force at low power and low noise. In the proposal we have provided a preliminary survey of relevant silicon and semiconducto ...

  8. STTR Phase I: Gait Tracker Shoe for long term accurate measurement of walking and running

    SBC: JKM Technologies, LLC            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project centers around the ability to provide accurate gait data for every day real world activities. Certainly this could be something of a game changer in the field of locomotion rehabilitation where self-reporting of compliance is an issue. In the growing activity of running this can change the way ...

  9. STTR Phase I: Microbial Production of a Multifunctional Natural Product 5-Hydroxytryptophan

    SBC: BIOTECERA INC.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be to develop a microbe to produce 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) for use as a dietary supplement, and as an animal feed supplement. 5-HTP is a multifunctional natural product that has been used as antidepressant, sleep aid, and appetite suppressant worldwide. In addition, 5-HTP can be used to preve ...
