Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-116
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The proposed ocean thermal energy harvesting approach is applicable to Slocum gliders, fixed-site power plants, and drifting or moored UUV charging stations. The temperature-induced buoyancy changes are driven by high-surface-area Shape Memory Alloy material that undergoes crystalline structure changes (Austinite - Martensite) when warmed or coo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-117
Budget: 11/26/13 - 05/26/14

Presently the performance of the AQS-20 is degraded when towed from a Fleet Class USV due to surge motion fluctuations. The ability to decouple the surge fluctuations between the USV and the towed body will enable the USV platform to achieve acceptable mine hunting system performance. This proposal will examine three methods of surge motion redu...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California Los Angeles

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T020
Budget: 09/13/12 - 03/12/13

A big challenge in atomic layer deposition (ALD) of complex metal oxides is that the ALD temperature for one constituent oxide is often different from that of another. Researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), have developed thermal and radical enhanced ALD processes to address these concerns and realized the synthesis of many ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-071
Budget: 08/30/12 - 02/28/14

Underwater sensors, unmanned underwater vehicles, and other autonomous systems can all benefit from the availability of energy in remote or deep locations. In a Phase I effort, Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC) designed a modular, solid-state thermoelectric generator (TEG), based on the Seebeck/Peltier effect, using customized availabl...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California Los Angeles

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT22
Budget: 08/15/11 - 05/14/12

ABSTRACT: Efficiency of solar cells is typically low reaching on the order of 10% for commercially available cells. Furthermore, efficiency decreases by 0.5% for every degree increase in operating temperature. In order to increase the efficiency of the conversion of solar radiation per unit area to electricity it becomes advantageous to combine ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-071
Budget: 05/09/11 - 03/09/12

One of the primary limitations of underwater sensors, unmanned underwater vehicles, and autonomous systems, especially in remote or deep locations, is the availability of energy. System endurance, speed, cost, and power for onboard systems can all benefit from the availability of in-situ power generation stations. Maritime Applied Physics Corpor...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-204
Budget: 01/14/10 - 01/13/11

The Navy has an emergent need to refuel USVs immediately upon launch from LCS, without putting a sailor onboard the USV. To meet that need, a robust simple system was developed during Phase I using mostly COTS components. The system accomplished the objective simply by making the fuel connection before the USV is launched and released the connec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-199
Budget: 03/11/09 - 03/01/11

MAPC proposes herein to continue development of an active electromechanical track tensioner, in order to extend the service life of tracked vehicle suspension and track components.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-204
Budget: 03/03/08 - 08/06/09

The first objective is to design a system for this initial fueling immediately following launch, with apparatus that can be connected prior to launch. The second objective is to significantly reduce the time to refuel a USV between mission sorties by refueling it from the LCS without bring it aboard the LCS. The third and final objective is to...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-199
Budget: 11/27/07 - 12/11/08

Research and development of an innovative and advanced active track tensioner is proposed. Multiple control schemes will be investigated, as will multiple integration issues that are inherent in the use of the system on high speed military tracked vehicles.
