Title: EVALUATION OF VARIOUS MICRO-ACTUATOR TECHNIQUES FOR APPLICATION IN HIGH WORK OUTPUT DEFORMABLE SURFACES
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $49,941.00
 

Abstract:

A USEFUL DEFORMABLE SURFACE WILL HAVE HIGH WORK/DENSITY RATIO REQUIREMENTS FOR IMPLEMENTATION IN CONTROL OF AERODYNAMIC SURFACES. GEOCENTERS, INC. PROPOSES TO EVALUATE THREE APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGIES WITH WHICH IT IS FAMILIAR TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL ONE FOR FUTURE PROOF-OFPRINCIPLE DEMONSTRATION. THE THREE TECHNOLOGIES INCLUDE: PIEZOCERAMIC TRAVELING WAVE LINEAR ACTUATOR, PIEZOCERAMIC FLEXURAL RESONANCE DISK PNEUMATIC PUMP, AND THERMALLY AND ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN MECHANOCHEMICAL ACTUATOR GELS. GEO-CENTERS, INC. WILL DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM TECHNOLOGY FOR DEVELOPING A DEFORMABLE SURFACE CAPABLE OF HIGH WORK OUTPUT. IT WILL NOT ONLY HAVE APPLICATIONS IN AERODYNAMICS BUT ALSO IN ROBOTICS, PROCESS CONTROL AND MICROPOSITIONING.
