  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  3. Single ply 3Dwoven Functionally Gradient Multi-Fiber / Multi-Matrix Composites with Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04249

    In composites, not only can properties vary with load direction, fiber based composites also offer the unique ability to tailor material properties locally. Localized matrix or fiber architecture changes can meet local mechanical, electrical, or thermal loads within a component or vehicle, without weight penalty or resort to additional external structures. In Phase I, the team used 3TEX 3-D wea ...

  4. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson’s ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work is focused on develop ...

  5. Corrosion Modeling and Life Prediction Supporting Structural Prognostic Health Management

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF06091

    This proposal offers an approach to integrate the latest corrosion sensor technology with corrosion structural effects modeling to enable the transition from periodic corrosion inspections to an efficient, focused prognostics and health monitoring (PHM) system. The fundamental vision of the proposed program is to provide the customer with a process suitable for integrating corrosion effects analy ...

  6. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  7. Response Management for Counterspace and SSA Operations

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF06283

    The foundation of any counterspace capability is space/counterspace situation awareness. Existing AFRL/VS funded efforts have established a foundation for robust, multi-level situation awareness through multi-source, multi-level, data fusion. However, situation awareness is only useful to the extent that it informs response to threats, whether natural or man-made. AFRL/VS Space Awareness & Respons ...

  8. Hardware Accelerated Simulator for Scattering from Electrically Large Objects and Scenes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05220

    Over the past few decades, computational electromagnetics (CEM) researchers have been making steady progress towards the development of efficient algorithms, such as the Method of Moments (MoM), for simulating scattering from electrically large targets. Unfortunately, such techniques have proved too computationally demanding because they require the solution of an often very large and dense matri ...

  9. Development of Advanced Polymer Based Photonic Crystal Devices and Fabrication Processes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05135

    Photonic crystals have led the way for miniaturizing application specific optical integrated circuit (ASOIC) to a scale comparable to the wavelength of light which in turn made them a good candidate for next generation high-density optical systems and interconnects. Polymer based Photonic Crystal structures have potential applications in optical integrated circuits, optoelectronics, optical switch ...

  10. Reconfigurable Nanophotonic Optical Interconnects for Advanced FPGAs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF06T006

    Optically interconnected systems provide a number of additional benefits. For example, by removing metallic traces, many signal integrity issues are also eliminated as the parasitic capacitance and inductance associated with high-speed lines are removed, which further improves systems performance. Additionally, such systems typically require less power and experience less leakage, or wasted power ...
