Abstract:Miniature electron spin resonance spectroscopy technology (Micro-ESR) provides a quantitative, real-time measure of oil condition including oxidation, sulfation, water content and additive depletion. In the event corrosion does occur, the sensor can quantitatively measure iron oxides in the oil.… more
Abstract:Neutron Scattering has been an extremely productive materials science probe for over 60 years. It is no exaggeration to say that any technology that uses plastics has benefitted from it in some way from Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS). Unfortunately, SANS is limited to studying molecular… more
Abstract:Landing gear systems are one of the more problematic subsystems on Naval aircraft. Landing gear failure can be caused by hard landings due to actual severe high sink rate with high enough GW to exceed the design strength, but are extremely rare. More common are fatigue and environmentally caused… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force typically requires restoration of corrosion affected aircraft components in hidden and/or hard to access areas. These aircraft structure and components are typically manufactured from aluminum substrates, as well as other alloys like titanium, and low alloy, PH and Cres… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Landing gear platings, such as LHE Zn-Ni and Cd are designed to protect the base material from the environmental effect of field use. Inherent to the electroplating process is the introduction of hydrogen into the high strength steel (HSS) aircraft component, which can cause hydrogen… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: As financial constraints become more pronounced for the DOD, and industry in general, the need for efficiency and elimination of waste becomes ever more important. Factories and repair depots expend tremendous amounts of resources applying high technology coatings to improve the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Currently, the Unites States Air Force (USAF) Landing Gear community is implementing Electrolytic Hard Chrome plate (EHC) replacement for line of sight applications utilizing HVOF technology. The chemical formulations chosen for this application are WC-Co and Tungsten Carbide Cobalt… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: USAF Landing gear are subject to extreme corrosion. Processes are used to extend component life without introducing additional modes of failure. Corrosion can still occur if compromised by wear or damage. A breakthrough processing Diatomaceous Earth (DE) was patented by Oak Ridge… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: When the inner diameter (ID) of a landing gear aluminum alloy outer cylinder is damaged or worn there is very little that can be done to restore the ID of the cylinder. Consequently, the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. A coating repair for aluminum alloy… more
Abstract:The goals of this Phase II project are to develop a prototype vision system and demonstrate its capability of locating boundaries and obstructions, normally 15 feet away, within one second in scenarios containing smoke from a real fire. This vision system needs to be compact and lightweight. ASC… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force needs a mission critical, high-performance electro-optical system capable of active or passive detection and characterization of a wavefront backscattered by an object of interest. In the AS & T novel concept proposed in the response to the Air Force requirements, a… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the NAVY needs and requirements for innovative solutions in laser beam control technology. To address this problem AS & T proposes to develop and demonstrate the performance of the BeaconLess Adaptive-optic System and Technology (BLAST). The role of BLAST is to enhance… more
Abstract:Atmospheric nucleation processes produce large numbers of particles. Once formed, these particles grow rapidly and may alter the formation and lifetime of clouds, and thereby influence the earths radiation balance. Rapid growth of newly formed particles has been observed in many locations, but it… more
Abstract:Development of new instrumentation for measuring volatile organic compounds (VOC) and intermediate

At one level, novel technologies are used for… more
Abstract:Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) are currently used by the U.S military for a wide variety of critical missions; however, there remains much research and work to enhance autonomy in these platforms. One capability specified by the U.S. Office of the Secr
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
