  1. Machine Learning of Part Variability for Predictive Maintenance

    SBC: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN & ANALYSIS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    High Cycle Fatigue (HCF) characterization and maintenance accounts for a significant portion of the overall life cycle cost of most military propulsion systems.  A key variable that drives HCF margin is dynamic response which is directly related to the geometry of each part.  This is especially true of integrally bladed rotors (IBRs, or blisks).  It has been well established that HCF is a proba ...

  4. Advanced Measurement Capability of Turbine Engine Exhaust and Jet Flows through Non-intrusive Methods

    SBC: Non-Contact Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Advanced Air Force turbine engines with integrated engine exhaust systems require diagnostic flow measurements. Integration of these systems into altitude test cells creates problems with T&E requirements such as impingement problems, exhaust cooling spray blowback, acoustic emission issues and limited space for measurement systems. Propulsion system analysts need better understanding of low aspec ...

  5. Local Stochastic Prediction for UUV/USV Environmental Awareness

    SBC: Applied Ocean Sciences, LLC            Topic: N19AT022

    This project delivers a compact system to assess and reduce local uncertainties that impact routing and sensor operation decisions while tracking the evolution of the maritime environment around unmanned platforms at sea (UUV/USV). The system runs both at control centers and on-board the UUV/USV’s, subject to different network bandwidth and computing environments Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) co ...

  6. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  7. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfer Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures. This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation. A unique microstructure for a tubular anode-supported SOFC is being developed using a novel freez ...

  8. Using the Conditional Moment Closure Method to Assess the Effects of Turbulence Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: A16AT001

    Predicting the emission signature and radar cross-section of rocket exhaust plumes is of vital interest to the Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Army to protect the U.S. homeland and our forces abroad.  The current STTR Phase II project has shown that a single-conditioned Premixed Conditional Moment Closure (PCMC) can employ detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms while efficiently modeling combustion ...

  9. Unmanned Aerial System with Infinite Energy Scavenging

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19AT019

    The objective of this Navy Phase II STTR program is to design, develop and manufacture energy scavenging modules for “small unit power” architecture. The energy scavenging modules (ESMs) developed in this program will be able to capture the magnetic fields surrounding electrical power lines and electrical equipment and convert their energy into electricity. The ESMs will be designed to have th ...
