Award List:

Advanced Acoustic Blankets for Improved Aircraft Interior Noise Reduction

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Curtis R. Mitchell
Award Amount: $69,953.00
Abstract:
In this project advanced acoustic blankets for improved low frequency interior noise control in aircraft will be developed and demonstrated. The improved performance is achieved with a novel lightweight composite system that has been previously experimentally demonstrated on laboratory structures.… More

Advanced Acoustic Blankets for Improved Aircraft Interior Noise Reduction

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Curtis R. Mitchell, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,946.00
Abstract:
The objective of the proposed Phase II research effort is to develop heterogeneous (HG) blankets for improved sound reduction in aircraft structures. Phase I successfully demonstrated the use of HG blankets for sound transmission suppression and the applicability of the technology to aircraft… More

PVDF Wire Sensor for External Monitoring of Piping Sound Pressure Level

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute
Principal Investigator: Curtis Mitchell, CEO
Award Amount: $69,458.00
RI Contact: Lisa D. Cotting
Abstract:
In this project we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of an external pipe sensor for measuring sound pressure levels in submarine piping systems. The sensor consists of flexible PVDF wire wrapped a number of integral turns around the pipe exterior. The charge/voltage output of the sensor can be… More

PVDF Wire Sensor for External Monitoring of Piping Sound Pressure Level

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute
Principal Investigator: Curtis Mitchell, CEO – (407) 448-0744
Award Amount: $499,711.00
RI Contact: Lisa Cotting
Abstract:
The Phase II base period of this project will focus on developing a hardened version of an externally mounted PVDF wire sensor measurement system and experimentally demonstrating and validating its use for determining internal pressure levels for realistic piping systems. A closed circuit piping… More

Active Quiet Pillow

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Curtis Mitchell, CEO – (407) 448-0744
Award Amount: $99,994.00
Abstract:
In this project we propose to develop, test and demonstrate the potential of an Active Quiet Pillow for reducing interior noise in helicopter medical evacuation scenarios using numerical simulation and experimental testing. The potential of the Pillow design is expected to reduce the interior noise… More
