  1. Low-Cost, Full-Field, Surface Profiling Tool for Mechanical Damage Evaluation

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines.  The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks.  Currently used techniques for assessing dents are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service.& ...

  2. Smart Sensor Network for Platform Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A08150

    Acellent proposes to develop a smart structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network system that can withstand the aggressive operations environment. It will be capable of autonomously assessing, reliably in real time, the structural integrity of ground vehicle structures and components. A new SMART Layer?hybrid consisting of an improved piezoelectric sensor/actuator configuration (utilizing th ...

  3. Diamond-like Carbon Coatings on Polymers


    In the Phase-I an innovative coating was demonstrated that provides increased resistance to abrasion and scratching, excellent optical properties and increased ballistic protection. The coating consists of a unique plasma pretreatment of the polycarbonate to improve adhesion and a combination of layers forming a grading in the mechanical properties from the soft polycarbonate to a hard overcoat. U ...

  5. Advanced Rotorcraft Comprehensive Analysis


    This proposal addresses the planned improvements to advance the Rotorcraft Comprehensive Analysis System (RCAS) during Phase II of this SBIR. Significant improvements will be implemented to expand RCAS functionality, accuracy, and usability. RCAS functionality will be greatly expanded with the addition of new complex rotorcraft components that allow users to model exotic configurations easily and ...

  6. Combined Viscous Vortex Particle Method with a Near Body CFD Solver for Rotorcraft Comprehensive Analysis


    The unsteady rotorcraft wake emanated from rotors, wings, and lifting surfaces is a physically complicated problem and remains a difficult aspect of comprehensive rotorcraft analysis. The recent development of a viscous vortex particle method (VVPM) shows very high promise for providing a first-principle-based solution to the unsteady wake problem. Applying VVPM for wake vorticity transportation, ...

  7. Frequency Based Semi-Active Laser Tracking

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: A08195

    This proposal makes use of ASC proprietary technology to solve the target/no-target discrimination problems associated with diffraction-caused laser beam divergence. Solutions are also offered for multiple target and countermeasure discrimination as well as for false target isolation caused by particle obscurants. Phase I consists of an experimental program to verify the proposed solutions. In Pha ...

  8. Composite Rotor Blade and Wing Structural Design Tool

    SBC: ADVATECH PACIFIC, INC.            Topic: A08022

    Aeroelastic effects are significant design drivers in rotorcraft design. Typically, detailed structural information of the rotor blade necessary to determine its cross-sectional mass and stiffness properties is not available early on in the design process, especially for complex composite blades that are being employed in modern rotor systems. Therefore, high-fidelity aeroelastic analysis is usual ...

  9. Low-Cost Method for Metal Nano-Coating of Anisotropic Carbon Fibers

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: A09009

    Presently, there is a pressing need from U.S. Army in developing metal-coated carbon fibers, which will be used as the payload for the Joint Program Manager (JPM) microwave obscuration program because they are excellent attenuators in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The metal coatings around carbon fibers are required to be highly conductive, less than 50 nm, and simultaneous ...

  10. High-Power Vertical-Cavity Laser Diode Arrays for Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: A08139

    Aerius Photonics proposes to develop fiber laser pump modules based on Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) arrays which can have a manufacturing cost ten times lower than the existing Edge Emitting Laser (EEL) technology. Aerius will demonstrate and deliver high power VCSEL array modules emitting at 976 nm wavelength. These modules can be used to pump Er-doped, Yb-doped and Yb/Er-codope ...
