IMPROVED SWITCHING CONCEPTS FOR S-A DEVICES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: E H Beach
Award Amount: $58,329.00

IMPROVED SWITCHING CONCEPTS FOR S-A DEVICES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: E H Beach
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
A principal problem in the design of safe-arm devices for any munition is to insure that when in safe position certain switches which should be closed, remain closed, and certain switches which should be open, remain open, when the munition is subjected to the various environments of shock,… More

SELF-DEPLOYING LARGE ARRAY STRUCTURES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Eugene H Beach
Award Amount: $49,138.00

SELF-DEPLOYING LARGE ARRAY STRUCTURES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Eugene H Beach
Award Amount: $495,060.00
Abstract:
A major problem for surface ship asw is the detection and localization of quite enemy submarine targets which are or may be approaching missile-launch range of a battle group and where own-ship, self-noise or sonar conditions preclude the use of ship sonars. one technique is to drop a pattern of… More

ROBUST, ACCURATE, NON-CONTACTING VIBRATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Theodore C Goodenow
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
When rotating machinery deteriorates, vibrtion pattersn change. when bearing frequencies appear, then increase in amplitude, bearing failure looms. the same with valves; when they leak, they vibrate. as leakage increases, the vibration pattern changes. there are many others. the key is knowing where… More

New Laser Acoustic Sensor for Gearbox Vibration and Diagnostics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Theodore C. Goodenow
Award Amount: $99,780.00
Abstract:
When rotating machinery deteriorates, vibration patterns change. The key is knowing where and how deeply to look. Gear mesh frequencies change in amplitude and the slimness or "All of their peaks change, indicating wear. Weakened teeth, due to root cracking or other gear damage,cause detectable… More
