  1. Weld Penetration Monitoring and Feedback Control in Submerged Arc Welding

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N093210

    This SBIR project aims at the development of an innovative technology that can be attached to existing submerged arc welding (SAW) systems to monitor and feedback control the depth of weld penetration. Existing SAW systems will be operated using existing welding procedures without modifications. In many applications skilled welders may adjust the welding parameters based on their observation of dy ...

  2. Meshfree-Based Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    The aluminum alloys have low density, relatively high strength, and high strength-to-weight ratio, which brings some major advantages in marine structure design, fabrication, and operations. However, marine ships are subjected to a complex and severe loading, and the typical failure mode of aluminum under extreme dynamics loading such as wave slamming and high velocity impact is ductile fracture. ...

  3. Deterministic and Statistical Characterization of the Impact of Control Surface Freeplay on Flutter and Limit-Cycle Oscillation (LCO) using Efficient

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT003

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art computational and experimental tools for the investigation of the impact of control surface freeplay on the flutter and limit cycle oscillation characteristics of two-dimensional and three-dimensional wings in subsonic and transonic flow. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed ba ...

  4. Multiscale Modeling and Analysis of Foreign Object Damage in Ceramic Matrix Composites with the Material Point Method

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT010

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is aiming at developing and implementing a multiscale composite model to predict the ceramic matrix composite (CMC) response to the impact loading by foreign objects. In particular, the physics-based model will be applied to describe the multiscale foreign object damage (FOD) phenomena of CMCs due to the complex nature of impact dynamics coup ...

  5. STOCHASTIC MUTISCALE/MULTISTAGE MODELING OF ENGINE DISKS

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT028

    Turbine disks are amongst the most critical components in aero- and naval-vessel engines. They operate in a high pressure and temperature environment requiring demanding properties. Nickel-based supperalloys which have high creep and oxidation resistance at high temperatures are widely used as the material of turbine disks. The elevated-temperature strength of this supperalloy and its resistance t ...

  6. Wideband Multi-Channel AESA Manifolds

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N101020

    Multi-channel array manifolds are required for wideband AESA applications. In modern solid-state AESA arrays, MMIC-based T/R modules generally utilize digitally-controlled phased shifters to steer the beam on transmit and receive. The given phase value is only accurate at one frequency, and so for wide bandwidths of several hundred MHz (at X-band for example), the beam does not get formed properly ...

  7. Power-Efficient Adaptive-and-Robust Link OFDM (PEARL-OFDM)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N093218

    Key obstacles to extending OFDM to wireless links and networks at high-frequencies and dynamic channels are inherent low performance to Doppler and power amplifiers operation with high back-off. Other significant obstacles are multipath and impulsive noise. PEARL-OFDM combines a layered architecture with technologies that mitigate such obstacles and enable full-range rates that maximizes connectiv ...

  8. Cost-Effective PiezoCrystal Transducer Assembly Technologies

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N101092

    The design and development of piezocrystal sonar transducers is a challenging multidisciplinary and technological effort that spans many fields and skill sets. We look to extend and improve our transducer assembly technologies to reduce cost and implementation time for sonar technology transition and in particular our methods for Active-Passive single crystal ring development and fiber glass wrapp ...

  9. Forward Bathymetry and Obstacle Avoidance Sensing for Safe High Speed Boat Operation Using 3D Forward Looking Sonar

    SBC: FARSOUNDER, INC.            Topic: N101077

    In order to improve the safety and efficiency of navy high speed small boat operations, FarSounder proposes a 3-dimensional, forward looking sonar solution capable of simultaneous bathymetry sensing and obstacle detection out to ranges of at least 1640 ft (500m). Additionally, the system will be cable of 50 knot operation and suitable for installation on a high speed planing vessel such as common ...

  10. Compact Efficient Electrically Small Broadband Antennas

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10131

    The objective of this proposal is to design and develop compact, efficient, electrically small, broadband antennas that are capable of handling high voltages of greater than 100 kV, and fit into small geometrical spaces of less than 40 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length. Previously insurmountable challenges to achieving the stringent requirements of simultaneous compact size, wider bandwidths, an ...
