  1. Heated Thermoplastic Fiber Placement Head for NASA Langley Research Center

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A404

    Reduced mass composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems, but are inhibited by expensive autoclave consolidation, especially for large parts. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective high-performance thermoplastic composite materials for years. NASA materials could dramatically reduce the cost of large aerospace structures, because those materials avo ...

  2. Vehicle Interior Noise Prediction Using Energy Finite Element Analysis

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: A204

    Prediction and enhancement of vehicle interior noise due to high frequency excitation, based on computer simulation, allows the application of the technology at the early stage of design process thereby improving the quality and reducing the cost. Traditionally, Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) has been used for this purpose. Modeling of SEA is rather complex and requires high level of analyst e ...

  3. Identification of Turbomachinery Noise Sources Using Acoustical Holography

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: A201

    Evaluation and enhancement of the acoustical performance of turbomachinery requires knowledge of the acoustic sources. However, the noise generation mechanisms associated with turbomachinery are complex and as result it is not easy to identify these noise sources. The development of an integrated experimental/numerical technique that is based on holography and is applicable for the identification ...

  4. Electronic Correlated Noise Calibration Standard for Interferometric and Polarimetric Microwave Radiometers

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new type of calibration standard is proposed which produces a pair of microwave noise signals to aid in the characterization and calibration of correlating radiometers. The Correlated Noise Calibration Standard (CNCS) is able to generate pairs of broad bandwidth stochastic noise signals with a wide variety of statistical properties. The CNCS can be used with synthetic aperture interferometers to ...

  5. High Temperature, Through the Case Eddy Current Sensor for Blade Vibration Measurements


    Preliminary results have shown that low temperature eddy current sensors can provide excellent resolution for blade tip timing, and have the ability to see ?through the case? of an engine and measure blade passings, without having to drill into the case material or subject the sensor to the harsh environment of the gas flow. What is needed is a rugged, high resolution sensor that can be used for ...

  6. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  7. Chronic Telemetric Biofluid Flow Monitoring Device

    SBC: Integrated Sensing Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Currently, no method exists for continuously, noninvasively monitoring flow in the vascular and other biofluidic systems. The proposed effort will ultimately develop a stent-based, telemetric, implantable flow monitor. Once implanted, flow data may be read noninvasively through magnetic telemetry, using a compact readout unit. This system will take advantage of state-of-the-art Microelectromechani ...

  8. Lightweight Tunable Infrared Filter

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Potential commercial applications include the retirement of satellites that have become unresponsive or unstable. For instance when this occurs in a constellation of satellites, where relative position to each other is critical, removing the defective satellite and replacing it with a new one is of great importance. A potential military application is the retirement of a spacecraft that attempts t ...

  9. 3-D Docking Sensor Algorithms

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: F501

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation has been funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) over the past several years to investigate on-orbit satellite docking and servicing technology. One of the key technologies required for all of those operations (rendezvous, docking, and inspection) is the sensor. For rendezvous and docking, the guidance senso ...

  10. Low Noise PAV Ducted Propeller using Automotive Manufacturing

    SBC: Munro and Associates            Topic: T701

    A critical barrier for GA to serve as viable and volume personal transportation is the lack of a cost-effective, yet open-growth, Lean Design and manufacturing technologies using automotive manufacturing technologies in for new personal airplanes. Munro & Associate and Michigan SATS share a vision, ?The CAR of the FUTURE is an Airplane?. This STTR?s goal is to create an innovative, Lean Design PA ...
