  1. Tube-Launched Rotary Wing UAV for Remote Surveillance Operations

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: N04T004

    The Navy desires to equip P-3s and similar future aircraft with UAVs that can be launched from a standard A-size sonobouy tube and return real-time information including video images from remote locations for further analysis and action. Lite Machines has developed an electric-powered rotary-wing UAV having a cylindrical body and a counter-rotating, coaxial, rotor system, that fits within these ti ...

  4. Development of a Compact Laser for Damage Detection and the Laser Bond Inspection (LBI) Process

    SBC: LSP Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF04133

    To reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency, composites are being used in aircraft construction at an accelerating rate. The presence of material defects in these composite structures can lead to disastrous failure under flight loads. Many classes of these defective regions are undetectable by conventional NDI techniques such as ultrasonic probing. A revolutionary new inspection technology inv ...

  5. Miniature Low-Cost Bandwidth Efficient Advanced Modulation (BEAM) Transceiver for Small Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N03183

    Recent advancements in modulation and coding have produced waveforms that are not only both power and bandwidth efficient, but are also well suited for operation with small, highly efficient, non-linear power amplifiers. These new techniques can significantly improve the current throughput of standard 25 KHz UHF channels, thereby enabling a single channel to simultaneously carry digital data, ima ...

  6. Crashworthy Ballistic Tolerant Fuel Tank Weight Reduction


    The pressure to reduce weight and maintain performance and safety is a significant driver in aviation technology development programs. Fuel and fuel systems are major contributors to weight on aircraft, including fuel cells, fittings, access panels and support structures. The design of the fuel cell is dictated by requirements to integrate the fuel cell into the aircraft structure, facilitate acc ...

  8. High Power Density Regenerative SOFCs

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: OSD04EP9

    The U.S. Air Force has identified a need for lightweight electrochemical energy production for systems where gravimetric and volumetric power densities are of premium importance. These devices will provide and/or supplement the primary power systems on air platforms such as monitoring and surveillance aircraft, including long endurance high altitude (LEHA) surveillance aircraft. For LEHA aircraf ...

  10. User-Defined Critics for Software Adaptation

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: SB022037

    Systems often fail because of unknown or unanticipated errors. Software/hardware components that can detect and correct errors would provide substantial cost savings and greatly enhance system reliability. The first step in achieving this goal is to create a paradigm in which the system becomes more “aware” of its operating performance characteristics and conditions that prompt intervention t ...
