  1. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Group 2-3 UAS engines have low mean time between overhauls (MTBOs), often with as little as 200-400 hours before maintenance must be conducted.This leads to significant maintenance cost and logistics tail for deployed operations.Two-stroke piston and rotary engines for Group 2-3 platforms have common maintenance drivers such as carbon fouling, and wear of cylinders, housings and bearings.Phase I r ...

  2. Reduced Size, Weight, and Power, Enhanced Range Electro-Optical and Infrared Sensor Suites

    SBC: PHELPS2020, INC.            Topic: SOCOM15004

    Phelps2020 proposes a low SWaP solution, ARRIS, to the improvement of the range and resolution of the MX-15 turret so they equal or exceed the capabilities of the MX-20 turret. We chose to keep the MX-15 turret as is and append to it a low SWaP accelerated processor that performs real-time FMV enhancement. A multi-layer software application addresses illumination, weather, and environmental limita ...

  3. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  4. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    In Phase I, a novel porous electrode was designed to demonstrate a rapid, simple assay for the detection of domoic acid in marine samples. During Phase II, methods to manufacture porous electrodes will be improved to enable high volume production of low-cost biosensors that can be connected to a potentiostat. These biosensors will be incorporated into a portable test kit for the quantitation of do ...

  5. High Power Rotary Actuator for Kinetic Energy Weapons

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: BMDO01002

    Dynamic Structures and Materials, LLC (DSM) proposes the design and development of a high power rotary piezoelectric driven actuator for optical assemblies for kinetic energy weapons. The proposed design uses an ultrasonic piezo ring motor to provide torque and speed. The simplicity of the design allows for very high actuation frequencies without excitation of undesirable modes, producing smooth ...

  6. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    USSOCOM has a need to provide high-resolution video imagery to the sensor operators of current and future gunships, other unmanned aircraft systems, and similar platforms, while supporting missions above an area of interest. The key factors driving this need are the ability to see beyond visual range of the main platform, assist sensors on the main platform to see through weather and to aid in mo ...

  7. EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE SENSORS FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: N/A

    AS A RESULT OF RECENT PROBLEMS SUCH AS THE OIL LOSS PHENOMENON IN SOME MODELS OF ROSEMOUNT PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS, THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY HAS BECOME INTERESTED IN FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS. THESE TRANSMITTERS ARE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES TO REPLACE THE EXISTING PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS IN THE SAFETY AND NON-SAFETY SYSTEMS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. FURTHERMORE, FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS MAY BE ...

  8. ASSESSMENT OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES FOR CONVENTIONAL ANDADVANCED LWRS

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROJECT IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE SUITABILITY OF NEWLY DEVELOPED SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES FOR BOTH OF THEFOLLOWING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT APPLICATIONS: MANAGEMENT OF AGING DEGRADATION OF SAFETY SYSTEM TEMPERATUREAND PRESSURE SENSORS IN CONVENTIONAL LWRS SMART TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE SENSORS FOR ADVANCED LWRS. THE PROJECT WILL ADDRESS BOTH THE CALIBRATION DRIFT AND RESPONSE TIME DEGRADA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. EFFECT OF AGING ON RESPONSE TIME OF NUCLEAR PLANT PRESSURE SENSORS

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: N/A

    PERIODIC RESPONSE TIME TESTING HAS BEEN PERFORMED FOR THE PAST TWELVE YEARS ON THE SAFETY SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSORS IN MANY NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS ARE NOT RELIABLE FOR ASSESSMENT OF AGING EFFECTS. THEIS BECAUSE INADEQUATE METHODS AND PROCEDURES HAVE BEEN USED IN PERFORMING THE MAJORITY OF THE TESTS. THIS PROPOSAL OFFFERS AN EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH PROJECT TO PROVIDE ...

  10. DEV OF A LARGE CROSS SECTIONAL AREA SELF-POWERED DETECTOR

    SBC: K E M P CORP            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-POWERED RADIATION DETECTOR THAT CAN BE USED TO DETECTTHE SOURCE POSITION IN INDUSTRIAL RADIOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED. SELF-POWERED DETECTORS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USEDINFLUX MAPPING SYSTEMS IN NUCLEAR REACTORS BECAUSE OF THEIR SIZE, RUGGEDNESS AND SIMPLICITY. THIS DETECTOR CONCEP PROVIDES THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LARGECROSS SECTIONAL AREA DETECTORS THATCAN BE USED ...
