  1. A novel Under Water Acoustic Sensor (UWAS)

    SBC: Chromologic LLC            Topic: N182136

    The U.S. Navy is seeking a low-noise, highly sensitive underwater acoustic sensor. Next-generation sonobuoys require more acoustic sensors packaged into the same fixed volume. Reduction in the volume of piezoelectric materials in an acoustic sensor can pose many challenges, such as increase in susceptibility to thermal noise, and can compromise performance. To address this urgent Navy need, Chromo ...

  2. Compact Low Noise Acoustic Sensors for Sonobuoys

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182136

    As foreign submarines become increasingly quieter, there is an ever-present need to improve the performance of passive surveillance systems to increase the probability of detection and ability to resolve critical signature differences useful for classification. Passive acoustic surveillance system such as sonobuoys typically employ arrays of hydrophones, configured to discriminate against backgrou ...

  3. Compact Low Noise Acoustic Sensors for Sonobuoys

    SBC: MSI Transducers Corp.            Topic: N182136

    Through this effort, the team of MSI Transducers and QorTek will develop a compact, low-cost, low-noise acoustic sensor for sonobuoys. The MSI concept fully utilizes its expertise in the design, development, and fabrication of transducers, combined with QorTeks expertise in power electronics, underwater amplifiers and next generation piezoelectric materials, to develop a compact low-noise system.

  4. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: THEOFANOUS & CO            Topic: N182110

    Our problem is to determine whether raindrops can survive the shock environment ahead of missile optical components to a degree that they become a damage concern. An initial assessment made for this proposal indicates that the relevant time scales measure in 5-20 microseconds and the Weber numbers (a measure of breakup regime and intensity) reach out to 2 106. We demonstrate that the relevant brea ...

  5. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N182110

    Development of an efficient device capable of concentrating ultrafine radioactive particulate aerosols is essential to the detection of nuclear detonations using a Radionuclide Aerosol Sampler and Analyzer (RASA) system as well as U.S. Navys development of a fast acting naval radiation detection system. We propose to develop an efficient device for ultrafine particulate aerosol concentration and s ...

  6. Development and Validation of a Computational Tool for Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N182110

    The survivability of tactical missiles through adverse weather is difficult to predict, because of the dependency on many variables and the unpredictable nature of weather. This proposal is focused on an effort to develop and test a physics-based methodology for the prediction of the droplet distortion and demise in the flow field around missiles in supersonic flight. Our technical approach of Pha ...

  7. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: N182110

    The current state of weather requirements definition for tactical missiles is outdated providing operational decision makers little confidence in the performance of missiles in any environment other than blue-sky. The challenge is understanding detailed physics features like drop shape change through a shock, and then being able to apply those at the system level for vehicle performance assessment ...

  8. Quantum Cascade Laser Thermal Impedance Improvement

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N182113

    Since the demonstration of the first quantum cascade laser (QCL) in 1994, there has been a steady improvement of the demonstrated power level and wall-plug efficiency. As expected for most maturing technologies, this rate of progress has slowed down as the parameter space of novel ideas has been more fully explored. R&D efforts however have not yet focused specifically on the thermal impedance of ...

  9. Reliable 5W Continuous Wave Quantum Cascade Lasers with a Nearly Gaussian Circular Output Beam

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N182113

    In response to the NAVY SBIR solicitation N182-113, the IRGLARE team is pleased to propose the development of highly reliable 4.5m Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) delivering over 5W of continuous wave optical power in a nearly gaussian beam (M2 < 1.5) with a low ellipticity. The combination of the high optical power and long term reliability will be achieved by over a two-fold reduction in laser the ...

  10. Mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers with highly efficient heat extraction architecture

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182113

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin proposes to demonstrate a new active region and thermal packaging configuration for the mid-wave infrared quantum cascade lasers that provide both high modal overlap with the laser active region and a dramatically reduced thermal impedance of the laser compared to the current state-of-the-art. The proposed laser desig ...
