  1. Compact Megavolt Switch Utilizing Novel Switching Mediums

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: N14AT018

    The Navy has a need to control such extreme power specifications that no suitable switches exist. The Navy power specifications require us to develop a novel medium (probably a pressurized gas or liquid) that can be configured to meet the requirements and control the flow of electrical power directly. Our extensive switching expertise has allowed us to develop a series of novel test fixtures and t ...

  8. In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N15AT008

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...
