  2. A Tool for the Simulation of Thermal and Chemical Effects on Turbine Engine Component Parts

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF04155

    CompuTherm proposes to develop a tool which will enable the simulation of thermal and chemical effects on turbine engine component parts made of Alloy 718 during heat treatment and service. The proposed innovative tool will include a thermodynamic database which covers all the phases for Alloy 718 and a software package which integrates both thermodynamic and kinetic models. The tool can be used t ...

  3. In-Harbor/At-Sea Ship Defense with Terahertz Sensors

    SBC: VDW DESIGN, LLC            Topic: N04065

    The Phase II component of this project will scale from the gigahertz to the terahertz regime the new antennas, pulse generators, detectors and modulation concepts modeled and demonstrated in Phase I. Phase II efforts will focus on arrays for generating and detecting broadband radiation from 50 GHz to above 0.5 THz (where atmospheric absorption is minimized) for sensing concealed threats. Portabili ...

  4. Active frequency stabilized laser systems for high performance defense applications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: MDA04020

    Highly frequency stable optical oscillators are a critical component in coherent detection systems, such as those utilized in range resolved Doppler imaging ladar and advanced photonic signal processing systems. The deployment of highly coherent master optical oscillators becomes increasingly complex in high vibration environments typical of aircraft and space vehicles. The objective of this SBI ...

  5. Computer-Aided Design and Optimization of High Performance Vacuum Electronic Devices


    High-performance vacuum electron devices, such as microwave tubes, are widely used in military electronic battle-space systems. These devices are found in radar, communications, remote sensing, and navigation systems, where they provide an efficient and reliable source of microwave power. The pivotal role of microwave tubes in many on-board systems makes them a natural choice for careful optimiza ...

  6. Nanocomposite Tribological Corrosion Resistant Coating for Robust Bearings and Gears


    "Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without lubricant. Current gear and bearing materials meet the design requirements, however, it is desirable to improve the component durability under unexpected severe operation (longer oil off) or extreme environmental (c ...

  7. Engineered Materials for improved Airborne Laser Mine Detection Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: BMDO02001

    This Navy SBIR Phase II effort will develop the processing steps required to fabricate high quality periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate (PPSLT) and demonstrate its utility for use in both current and emerging Airborne Laser Mine Detection Systems (ALMDS) by enabling highly efficient laser wavelenth conversion. The proposed optical material will also support the development of shor ...

  8. A narrowband, frequency-agile laser for optical interrogation of arrayed fiber optic sensors

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF02005

    The VIRGINIA Class submarine employs the Light-Weight Wide Aperture Array (LWWAA) hull-mounted array of fiber-optic hydrophones that requires the use of high performance, narrowband lasers. In this Navy Phase II SBIR effort, a prototype laser for the LWWAA hull-array sensor will be developed using the frequency-stabilized semiconductor laser technology demonstrated during the Phase I effort. The ...

  10. Fatigue Enhanced Cold-worked Hole FECH- Analyzer

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N05120

    The Navy routinely uses a structural strengthening technique called cold hole expansion for increasing the fatigue life of primary aircraft structures that are fastened together. This process creates beneficial compressive stresses around the hole. However, variances in the process produce inconsistent results and no means exist to nondestructively quantify the process effectiveness. Resodyn C ...
