High Hesitivity Magnetic Materials for Magnetic Toroid and Flat Dipole AntennasSBC: WINCHESTER TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: N16AT001
Novel approaches are needed to improve the performance and reduce the size, number and signature of antennas with significantly enhanced efficiency in HF-UHF. It has been shown recently hesitivity, which is able to characterize the performance of the material and categorize the radiation efficiency of magnetodielectric wire antennas; the higher the hesitivity, the higher the attainable antenna eff ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Nonlinear-DSP-Enabled RF-Photonic LinkSBC: RAM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: N14AT023
Digital equalizers have been the major enablers in RF communications in terms of managing component imperfections and channel impairments. Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication systems to deal with impairments as well as allowing higher capacities in the information transfer.On ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Development of a Micro-glider for Oceanographic Air-Sea Interaction SamplingSBC: MRV SYSTEMS LLC Topic: N14AT020
This proposal is a collaborative effort between MRV Systems and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The goal is to develop a new, small, inexpensive autonomous vehicle to investigate mixed layer dynamics and turbulent mixing. The preliminary Phase I design, a Diagonally Operating Platform (DOP), is a profiling float with moveable fins. DOP will turn toward an intended direction within a few ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
System to Evaluate and Assess Holistic Aircrew Workload (SEAHAWK)SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: N16AT002
The Navy is continually developing new technologies to improve warfighting effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading Aircrews physical and cognitive capacities, thereby degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. Such a system must (1) perform real-time data collection in a robust ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Air Cycle Machine Low Friction, Medium Temperature, Foil Bearing CoatingSBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N16AT005
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser UltrasonicsSBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS INC Topic: N15AT008
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Novel, Low-Cost Phased arrays Manufactured by 3D Printing (1000-325)SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC Topic: N14AT021
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to accelerate development of printed, high-efficiency phased arrays operating at Navy-relevant frequencies. The proposed development effort will include optimization of the array printing techniques from Phase I to meet the Navys phased array performance goals. The printed arrays will incorporate both printed radiating elements and an innovative printed packag ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
