  1. Development of a Field Portable Acousto-Optical Ultrasonic Evaluation System

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: A02044

    Santec Systems Inc. has invented a super high-resolution, large area ultrasound detector called an acousto-optical (AO) sensor. It can be used to inspect parts by forming instant images of parts/products, analogous to x-ray images, using ultrasound which is non-ionizing and safe. Using the AO sensor-based inspection system, ultrasonic evaluation of military, aerospace, aircraft and helicopter plat ...

  2. eShiver: a Novel Haptic Technology for Geospatial Display

    SBC: Tanvas, Inc.            Topic: A15049

    The goal of this project is to develop a novel Surface Haptic feedback solution for geospatial 3D/4D visualization. Tangible Haptics LLC is proposing to apply a new technology that allows for control of both direction and magnitude of the in-plane forces felt by a users fingers while exploring a touch screen. Control over both the direction and magnitude of fingertip forces is important because it ...

  3. Extended Short-Wavelength Infrared Focal Plane Arrays for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: A16042

    Hyperspectral imaging at full short- and extended short-wavelength infrared spectral band (0.92.5 m) has important military applications. When used for imaging, a SWIR camera can operate at night using light reflected off the subject in the scene, generating high resolution images with details such as shadows and surface roughness. Compared to thermal infrared imaging, SWIR images look more like v ...

  4. Adaptation of Ferrium M54 for Personal Armor

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A16065

    QuesTek Innovations LLC proposes to adapt its patented Ferrium M54 alloy for personal armor applications. The US Army Soldier Protection and Individual Equipment (SPIE) Program indicates the need for the development of Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPIs) and Side Ballistic Inserts (SBIs) that will be able to protect the Soldier from threats such as basic small arms, sniper threats, and armor pie ...

  5. Design of High-Strength Silver Alloys for Shape Charge/EFP Liner Applications

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A16016

    Recent research by the Army has indicated that silver-based alloys will serve as a superior replacement material for tantalum liners in EFPs.EFPs must have high ductility while experiencing very high strain rates (104-107 s-1) in order to form coherent jets.Strengthening Ag/Ag-based alloys will allow for complete replacement of tantalum for EFPs, providing for superior performance.Under this SBIR ...

  7. Stochastic Electromagnetic / Circuit Analysis

    SBC: Synclesis, Inc.            Topic: A15AT004

    System-level electromagnetic modeling, which is necessary for electromagnetic interference (EMI) analysis and design for complex platforms housing numerous communication and computing electronics, is computationally formidable and often prohibitively complex. While such modeling is indispensable in guiding and assessing placement and integration of components and subsystems, the multiscale complex ...

  8. Application of ICME to Optimize Processing of State-of-the-art Gear Steels in Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A15104

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a novel process of fabricating components in a layer-by-layer method under the control of computer-aided design (CAD) information, rather than by the traditional use of casting molds and forming dies. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) methodologies are effective tools to reconfigure the materials development process and accelerate implementation o ...

  9. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

  10. Powder Fluidization Grenade (PFG) and Microwave Carbon Fiber Dissemination Device (MWCF-DD) for Improved Military Obscurant Dissemination

    SBC: HY-TEK MANUFACTURING CO., INC.            Topic: A11045

    HMCs Phase II work involved successful development and performance validation of a PFG prototype capable of consistently producing > 90% PO dissemination yield and gFOM higher than that of the currently deployed M106 obscurant grenade. Of particular importance in the Phase II design cycle was development of a PFG that excludes the use of dangerous explosives which can cause injury to the user or c ...
