  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 ...

  2. Integrally 3D Woven/3D Braided Composite Joining Elements For Ship Construction

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N04093

    During Phase I, 3TEX designed universal, one-piece, 3D woven fiber preforms which can be used as either a “Butt” (H) joint or as a “P” joint as needed. Composite joints were fabricated and tested, demonstrating the benefit of the integral nature of the 3D preforms. 3D stress/strain and crack propagation analysis of composite Π-joint was performed using 3D MOSAIC code. 3D displacement, st ...

  3. 3-D Fiber Reinforced, Thermally Conductive Rotor Sheaths

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N06T013

    Military helicopters rotors contend with rain, ice, sand, and flying debris. To prevent damage to the expensive blade protective sheaths or coatings are applied to the leading edge of the rotor blades. A 3-D woven composite sheath with high thermal conductivity fibers running through the thickness can offer the best qualities of both metal sheaths and elastomer coatings. Infused with an elastom ...

  4. Improved Miller Fasteners Based on 3-D Braided Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N06033

    Miller Fasteners made from 2-D laminates represent the state of the art in joining CMC panels to metal frames. Despite its success, the extant Miller fastener design is limited by its construction from a laminate of 2-D fabric. The resultant fastener part has poor interlaminar shear strength, and its manufacture and application entails high machining costs and high material scrap rates. 3TEX, i ...

  5. A CAD Tool for Rapid analysis of Repairs

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N06005

    The objective of this project is to develop and validate a CAD tool for the rapid design of mechanically fastened repairs, bonded repairs, and hybrid repairs involving both adhesive bonding and mechanical fasteners. To allow use by non-specialists, the CAD tool will replace the current process of manual construction of joint finite element models with CAD tinker toy assembly using parametric par ...

  6. Expendable Electro-Optic Infrared Camera System

    SBC: CLOUD CAP TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N05138

    Cloud Cap Technology is proposing to develop a stabilized pan tilt zoom camera gimbal system for the Coyote sonobuoy tube launched UAV. Cloud Cap is the maker of the Piccolo autopilot, which is used in many UAV systems, including the prototype of the Coyote. In the spring of 2006 Cloud Cap will introduce a new product, the TASE stabilized pan tilt zoom camera system for small UAVs. TASE is almo ...

  8. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    While the need for effective millimeter wave (mmW) imaging systems is clear, there remains a significant gap in the technology needed to realize it, namely the ability to process and enhance mmW imagery in a real-time manner. This is particularly important because raw mmW images appear very fuzzy, are color mapped, and have regions of intensity that are not normally associated with visible and IR ...

  9. Rapid Repair Analysis Tool

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: N06005

    A computational system is required that contains validated/certified tools and models that can be readily employed by non-FEM experts. Designers would be able to input parameters, such as panel bay spacing, boundary conditions, skin material and thickness, skin stiffness, flushness requirement, and scarf angles, while the system would automatically construct a valid finite element representation ...

  10. Automation of Equipment/System Isolation and Safety Tag-out for Maintenance Actions

    SBC: FOARD SYSTEMS DESIGN, INC.            Topic: N05160

    The proposal outlines the use of rapid protyping techniques to create a functional small scale feasibility system and documentation to provide a demonstration of the features needed in a full-scale automated isolation and tag-out system. It will use a highly innovative, patented network control technology that provides a reliable, low cost means to interconnect thousands of remote sensor and cont ...
