  1. Physics and Statistics Based Selection of SLM and EBM Process Parameters to Mitigate Defects and to Control Deposit Microstructure

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: T1204

    The ability to assign a level of confidence for build quality is fundamental to the deployment of powder bed technology. Accordingly, the research objective of this work is to use probability theory as a glue to combine the physics-based models used for the selection of processing parameters together in order to produce quality deposits using the following approach: (1) Use probability theory as ...

  2. Green, Compact Hybrids for Nanosatellite Launchers

    SBC: Terves Inc.            Topic: T101

    Low cost access to space is essential for continued commercial exploitation of near-earth environments, and to support future science missions. A serious limitation on the cost of space access is the available propellants and propulsion system technologies for launch, orbital insertion, maneuvering and orbital reinsertion, and reaction and attitude control.This Phase I STTR program will validate i ...

  3. In-Process Monitoring of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: T1204

    In Phase I of this project MLPC, WSU, and AFIT were successfully able to identify several optical data features that are indicative of the quality of components built with the selective laser melting additive manufacturing process. Four unique optical sensors were identified to collect this information and they include infrared and visible wavelength high-speed cameras and spectrometers. The sen ...

  4. Real-Time Geometric Analysis of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: T1204

    Current selective laser melting additive manufacturing (AM) systems do not have adequate process control features for wide-spread adoption across NASA. In this project Mound Laser & Photonics Center (MLPC) will work with Wright State University (WSU) to implement a novel system for layer-by-layer in-process monitoring for AM. The key innovation in this work will be the use of a line-laser profil ...

  5. Integration of Fast Predictive Model and SLM Process Development Chamber

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: T1204

    This STTR project seeks to develop a fast predictive model for selective laser melting (SLM) processes and then integrate that model with an SLM chamber that allows full control of process variables and is equipped with in-process sensors. The combination will create a closed loop in which the model suggests process parameter settings for test builds and the sensors provide feedback to the model. ...

  6. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...
