  1. Single Camera Dynamic 3D Surface Mapping System

    SBC: OPTINAV INC            Topic: N/A

    The NHTSA has expressed a need for a system to measure the 3D time history of the deformation automobile interior structures during crash tests. A simple, innovative, approach that uses a single high speed video camera is proposed. The project will involve bench testing the concept and gathering information to prepare for full scale development in Phase II.

  2. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  3. Lightweight, Rugged, Portable Fuel Cell

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "To operate sensors to verify future arms control agreements, inspectors will need a portable power source. The power source must be rugged, lightweight, reliable, adaptable to a variety of different sensor applications with different current/voltagerequirements, and simple to refuel in the field. We propose to develop a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell that is ideal for arms control ...

  4. Reduction of Motion Side Effects and After Effects

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Motion sickness has long been a problem during the deployment of military forces. The increased speed and agility of today's transports makes this problem even more acute. For the special forces who undertake rapid insertions using a variety of vehiclesin all weather, the incidence of motion sickness can compromise the mission and endanger lives. Despite intensive research, there are still no ...

  5. Ballast Exchange Monitoring System

    SBC: Glosten, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Monitoring ballast exchange is possible with the application of currently available technology. A monitoring system would consist of sensors to collect data, a programmable logic controller to transfer the data to a personal computer, and a database program to develop the data into a meaningful information. Sensors are currently available which can detect flow through a pipe, detect motor start ...

  6. Glosten Ballast Management System Technical Proposal- Phase II

    SBC: Glosten, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Glosten Ballast management System developed under SBIR Phase I determined that tracking ballast exchanges was feasible and showed strong commercial viability. Phase II of this project is intended to demonstrate, with a full-scale shipboard installation, that automated tracking of a vessel's ballast system is practical and cost effective for both the operator and the regulator. The system is ...

  7. Cost effective, rapid densification of lightweight ceramic matrix composite LRE components by gas phase reaction synthesis

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sabulon, Inc. has developed novel and rapid gas phase nitridation methods which have considerable potential for manufacturing rocket nozzle components from structurally robust and thermally stable silicon-based CMC materials in more cost-effective and rapid fashion than currently available chemical capor infiltration or polymer impregnation and pyrollysis processing techniques. This proposal advo ...

  8. Haptic Display Software for Hiqh Level Architecture Simulations

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Future High Level Architecture (HLA) simulations will incorporate non-visual stimuli. One such stimulus will be force feedback that is provided using haptic displays. Force feedback will be instrumental in o btaining high fidelity information exchange between the simulation and the user. However, one significant problem with providing force feedback between a simulation and a user is that time ...

  9. LABORATORY INVESTIGATION OF ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS ON VORTEX WAKES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED IN A STRATIFIED TOW TANK ARE PROPOSED TO CHARACTERIZE VORTEX WAKES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ATOMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE. FLOW RESEARCH HAS DEVELOPED INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR STRATIFYING THE FLUID IN THE TANK, GENERATING A CURRENT SHEAR AND CREATING AMBIENTTURBULENCE WITH GOOD CONTROL. SUCH CAPABILITIES WOULD FACILITATE THE ISOLATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE DISTURBANCE S ...
