  1. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...
