One of the primary missions of the Infrared/Radio Frequency (IR/RF) System Technologies Division (WXR), and the Countermeasure Design Branch (WXRL) at NSWC Crane, is to develop countermeasures to protect U.S. aircraft from threat missile systems.
The evolving requirement of the U.S. strategic missile programs have required the continual development of highly capable advanced composite materials such as Carbon/Carbon (C/C) and Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) to deliver differentiated missile performance.
Strategic Command, Control, Communications, Computer Intelligence, Surveillance (C4ISR) to Operationalize the Stratosphere (SCOS) Prototype Project
The Department of Defense (DoD) desires to enhance strategic mission capabilities by exploring Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enhance autonomous stratospheric technology.
Innovative Prototyping Concepts for Using Additive Manufacturing (AM) for Technology Protection (TP)
Recent advances in Additive Manufacturing (AM), commonly referred to as 3D printing, may be able to play a significant role in the next generation of Technology Protection (TP) techniques.
Request for Network Insight in support of Strategic Radiation Test Equipment - Electron Linear Accelerator
This S2MARTS announcement is intended to pulse NSTXL’s Innovation Network to discover potential solutions that will evolve radiation testing.
The DoD is seeking prototyping support to address Obsolescence, Data Management and Re-Engineering issues. In order to achieve DoD strategic goals, obsolescence management is of ever-increasing importance.
The Navy desires a prototype software application that we call Printed Circuit Board Analysis Tool (PCBAT). Printed circuit board analysis, in this context, is the automation of assessing the physical configuration, condition, and provenance of electronics and associated components on printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) to manage supply chain risk; these efforts are done manually today at a high cost
Opportunity Notification: S2MARTS has received notice from the Requiring Activity (RA) partner, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC), Research & Advanced Concepts Division (SMDC-TCP-AR), Air & Missile Defense Directorate, Technical Center, of revised requirements and funding profile, which has resulted in the cancellation of the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) Technology Advanced Testbed (TAT) Prototype Project.
The DoD desires the capability to detect and counter emerging threats in the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS), providing warfighters with an enhanced understanding of their battlefield environment. The RFSD aims to collect and analyze RF signals to compare against a baseline environment, and automatically alert warfighters to anomalous signals.
The United States Navy and Air Force, in support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), is developing integrated circuit (IC) hardware and workflow prototypes that promote the use of assurance principles, feature protections, and correlation.
The DoD desires innovative prototype solutions for an Autonomous Fiber Optic Sensor Network (A-FOSN), a passive opto-acoustic fiber optics sensor system that measures the micro strain of sound waves on continuous wave laser light utilized in a buried fiber optic cable array for detecting intruders into U.S. Navy ports.
