  5. Prehensor for one atmosphere diving suit

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS            Topic: N13AT010

    Current atmospheric diving suits and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) have end effectors with simply 1 DOF. This rudimentary manipulation results in excessive time spent working a problem underwater, development of task specific tools that can be operated by the pliers or acceptance that a specific job simply can't be accomplished. Vishwa Robotics proposes a teleoperated, anthropomorphic end ...

  6. A Rapid Optical Approach to Quantitative Composite Bond Quality Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N13AT011

    Composite materials are widely used in aircraft to reduce weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond quality issues, including kissing bonds which may occur because of initial fabrication or service related issues. Detection of such weakened bonds requires an easily used detection approach to routinely monitor co ...

  7. Conformal Array Laser Imager for Bondline Evaluation&Repair (CALIBER)

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N13AT011

    The NAVY solicits new non-destructive inspection (NDI) methods to address detection and evaluation of kissing bonds and bondline integrity in aerospace composites since no currently accepted standard exists. In response AS & T Inc. propose, the Conformal Array Laser Imager for Bondline Evaluation and Repair (CALIBER), designed expressly for this purpose. The novelty of the proposed approach lies i ...

  8. Ship Wake Velocity Mapping Using InstantEye MAV

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N13AT015

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and their academic partner, West Virginia University (WVU), are pleased to propose a uniquely innovative approach to measuring the three-dimensional air wake velocity field behind ship structures and towers. The velocity data is needed to support the validation of CFD models that will ultimately be used to provide sufficient safety margins for ship aircraft operations ...

  9. High-Temperature Metamaterial Emitter For Thermophotovoltaics

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N13AT017

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a high energy density (HED) power source based on the principles of thermophotovoltaics (TPV). The core technology of the HED power source is a novel high-temperature, spectrally-selective metamaterial emitter with a tailored emission spectrum matched to the external quantum efficiency spectrum of ...

  10. Pro-Active Decision Support (PADS)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N13AT020

    Warfighters face overwhelmingly complex and uncertain situations in which they must make life-and- death decisions. Today"s information systems often overwhelm decision makers still further. Attention to results of cognitive science can contribute to the design of a new generation of systems that are far more helpful: based on knowledge of user roles, tasks, and context, systems can help proactive ...
