  1. High-Power, Low-Frequency, Textured PMN-PT Underwater Projector

    SBC: MASSA PRODUCTS CORPORATION            Topic: N181020

    There is an ongoing need to improve the design of low-frequency, high-power, broadband sonar transducers for use in A-sized sonobuoys. Desired improvements include lowering the frequency, increasing the power, increasing bandwidth, reducing size, reducing weight, and lowering cost. Most sonobuoy applications currently utilize flextensional or flexural transducers that use piezoelectric PZT type ce ...

  3. A-PuMPS: Aircrew Performance Measurement and Proficiency System

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N181026

    The Navy seeks to leverage data science-based tools, methods, and principles to achieve a warfighting advantage over our enemies. For example, aggregate data regarding Warfighter proficiency could help the Navy to make better-informed decisions on topics such as curriculum redesign, simulator acquisitions, and weapons platform acquisitions. However, in order to create such a proactive and predicti ...

  4. Maritime Target Automatic Target Recognition from Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) Utilizing Machine Learning

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N181029

    Radio frequency missile seekers operating over the ocean against maritime targets must identify specific ship classes on a tight timeline while addressing the inherent complexity of low altitude over-ocean RF propagation and 6-DOF ship motion that occurs during the coherent processing interval of a range-Doppler image. Our Phase 1 program will develop a practical machine-learning based ISAR ATR sy ...

  5. Cut Resistant Hose for Vibration Isolation Module (SEASNAKE)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N181034

    As described by the Navy, a surface ship towed array VIM (Vibration Isolation Module) hose that is resistant to cuts, abrasions, perforation, and other mechanical damage is needed by the Navy. The surface ship fat line VIM is a fluid filled hose that reduces the low frequency vibrations experienced by towed array sensors, such as the TB37 surface ship towed arrays, by attenuating the vibration thr ...

  6. Turbulence Mitigation, Error Reduction, and Increased Contrast (TURMERIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N181044

    The Submarine Force is phasing out conventional optical periscopes in favor of digital sensor masts that electronically transmit video to the Control Center. Digital imagery still suffers from distortions due to atmospheric turbulence caused by humidity and temperature gradients near the ocean surface. While systems for turbulence correction exist, they have largely focused on static scenes and re ...

  7. Ultra-Low Ripple 1000 Volt Direct Current Battery Charger

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N181048

    Future Navy pulsed power systems, including lasers, directed energy systems, and railguns will require short-term prime power sources exceeding currently available shipboard capacity. Battery systems are being developed to support this peak power demand on an as-needed basis. Batteries can be charged over a relatively long period of time at low power from an existing AC or DC bus. Ripple current i ...

  9. Leveraging a Robust Data Architecture for Rapid Combat System Integration, Testing, and Certification

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: N181053

    The current combat software update process takes two years. VIStology proposes to develop a Semantic data Architecture for Future-proof Extensible integration (SAFE) approach that will leverage semantic technologies to allow adding and maintaining new components at runtime without affecting the legacy systems. Proposed semantically-rich protocols facilitate automating reasoning about the legacy an ...

  10. High Performance Compact Medium-Power Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Laser System for Shipboard Deployment

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: N181054

    Recent progress has been made in the development of medium-power quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) for use in airborne countermeasures, particularly in the adoption of Daylight Solutions Solaris Laser in the Armys Common Infrared Countermeasure (CIRCM) program and Forward Photonics high brightness 25 W laser. These developments to date have been targeted in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR), however with e ...
