  4. Affordable CMAS-Resistant Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N12AT019

    A notable failure mechanism in thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) is the attack by calcium-magnesium-alumino silicate (CMAS) deposits resulting from the ingestion of siliceous minerals with the intake of air. Existing TBC systems such as yittria partially stabilized zirconia (YSZ) are highly susceptible to CMAS infiltration. In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in the field of comp ...

  5. Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

    SBC: ETYMOTIC RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N10AT032

    Current otoacostic emission probes used diagnostic evaluation middle and inner ear components of hearing are not capable of producing well-calibrated and high-quality acoustic stimuli that cover the entire frequency range of human hearing and are thus unsuited for rapid evaluation of the range of inner ear damage from ototoxic drugs, noise and the normal process of aging. The accuracy of stimulus ...

  6. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Innovative Design & Research Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    The XS-Air engine should provide the highest power density with both diesel and gasoline piston engines. This would be especially true in smaller engines in where turbos or blowers are impractical. The XS-Air engine can solve the aviation industry problem of the potential phasing out Av-gas. The spark ignition XS-Air engine should be able to burn pump gas and still generate extreme power densities ...

  7. PICT, A Tool For Interactively Capturing and Managing Programmer's Intentions

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CP1

    The so-called"software crisis"is continuing unabated. It is all too common for a software project to create software that is hard to maintain, inefficient, bug-ridden, late, and over-budget. Software flaws resulting from this current state of affairs are no longer an inconvenience but are the largest source of software security vulnerabilities. Motivated by a desire to increase our ability to ...

  8. On Demand Oil Supply

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: N112096

    The need to optimize gas turbine engine performance, coupled with"electrification"of aircraft systems, as on the Lockheed F35 and Boeing 787 , in order to maximize efficiency and flexibility, created an opportunity to develop a"smart"electrically driven lubrication system for gas turbine engines. Spytek"s electric oil system ascertains the operating condition of a gas turbine engine, including spe ...

  10. Computational Design of Corrosion-resistant Gear Steel with Advanced Thermal Processing

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N112107

    High performance gear and bearing materials are necessary to achieve long life and efficient operation of aerospace drive system turbine machinery operating in a marine environment. Current materials capable of providing fatigue and pitting resistance do not provide the desired corrosion resistance. For example, advanced stainless gear alloy Pyrowear 675 has core mechanical properties similar to 9 ...
