Abstract:Recently, the F-35 program experienced fatigue cracking in a low pressure turbine blade inside the F135 engine from recrystallization (RX). These problems cost the program time and money, strain the political capital necessary to sustain a large weapons program, and undermine the confidence of… more
Abstract:Payload stored in multiple all-up-round canisters (MACs) critical to Ohio- and Virginia-class sub missions is susceptible to damage from excessive shock and vibration loading. TRI/Austin proposes to investigate a state of the art lateral missile support system to resolve this issue. A preliminary… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) is proposing to build an energy supply system for the Tray Ration Heating System (TRHS) that will eliminate the use of JP-8 fuel as an energy source to heat the rations. There are three operational conditions when the TRHS needs to be supplied with energy… more
Abstract:Marine forces of the future will be significantly more agile, lethal, mobile, and survivable. The current limitation on tactical wheeled vehicles is at the tire/terrain interface. Tactical wheeled vehicles need the ability to adapt to rapidly changing terrain conditions and missions by developing a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin and the University of Texas at San Antonio have teamed to develop and demonstrate a complete set of modules and a framework for structural reliability analysis for the Air Force. These modules will be developed with a scriptable interface to enable the structural engineer to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fuel tanks for aircraft commonly utilize a hexavalent chromated polyurethane coating acting as corrosion protective secondary containment for fuel. The coating service range is from -65 to 250oF. New effective coatings free of hexavalent chromium corrosion inhibitors and offering rapid… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin proposes to develop an ultrasonic (UT) based non-destructive evaluation (NDE) system that can detect and characterize the tailored surface grain size distribution in aerospace nickel and titanium alloys. Many metals are now engineered via heat treating processes to adjust the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Reliability of weapon systems after periods of storage dormancy has long been a significant concern throughout military history. The trend in missile systems over prior decades has been toward greater sophistication, complexity, and longer periods of dormancy while in transportation and… more
Abstract:To address the Navy"s need for an innovative manufacturing processes and materials to produce a shower stall that is affordable, modular, corrosion resistant, water tight, and can be built with the minimal number of standardized components to reduce the production time and overall life-cycle… more
Abstract:High moisture permeation rates through hose wall materials are a primary failure mode for the design currently used in fat line towed arrays. These premature failures are extremely costly in terms of repair, and the loss of sensors in the towed array impacts submarine mission capability. The high… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively… more
Abstract:Austin (TRI/Austin) first developed non-conductive coatings (NCC) for marine connector applications in the mid 1990"s. These coatings are applied by a plasma spray process, and the patented technology has reduced the cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy by reducing down time of submarines for… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. (TRI/Austin) is developing a lithium-ion battery module that will manage individual cell thermal runaways in two ways. The active management path will be to monitor the internal temperature of the cell and remove the cell from the charging/discharging circuit if… more
Abstract:Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative… more
Abstract:This proposal documents Phase II efforts of Tietronix Software Inc. as it relates to the combination of a multi-platform game with graphic novel elements in support of computer science education. Aegis is a software application that combines the playabili
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies for surveillance, communications, and navigation. However, our satellites face significant threats from failures, space weather, and orbital debris and must become more survivable. A key component to more survivable… more
Abstract:Increasing the autonomy of unmanned vehicles potentially reduces operator workload and cognitive load. Realizing the promise of autonomy however, is difficult when deploying in environments with mobility and visibility challenges, enemy threats, risks of endangering civilians, and limited… more
Abstract:Mixed human-robot teams have potential to reduce risk to soldiers during missions while matching or improving performance over human-only teams. Responsibility to achieve mission goals can be shared between humans and robots to improve mission success and operational timeliness. Dynamic shifts of… more
Abstract:Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more integral to our nation's defense. There is a desire to increase the autonomy of these vehicles and enable humans to delegate those tasks that are more effectively done by computer. Achieving this will require
Abstract:Many organizations have personnel performing complicated tasks at consoles. In many cases these tasks are defined by checklist procedures, complicated lists of the actions that need to be taken, as well as the readings that show the action was taken correctly. In the past, these checklists have… more
Abstract:Many of NASA's exploration scenarios include important roles for autonomous or partially autonomous robots. It is desirable for them to utilize human tools when possible, rather than needing to build custom tools for each robot. Control of robotic manipulators for tool usage generally… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose a lamp for ultra-high speed photography according to the specifications of the solicitation. BENEFIT: The lamp design can be used for any ultra-high speed photography, particularly where the item under test is explosive or passes at sufficient speed to cause an over-pressure… more
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.
