  1. Advanced Non-Destructive System to Characterize Subsurface Residual Stresses in Turbo-machinery Components

    SBC: Proto Manufacturing Inc            Topic: N152091

    Manufacturers of aerospace propulsion systems are well aware of the positive effects of compressive residual stress (RS) fields on turbo-machinery components in terms of improved fatigue life and durability. Tensile RS, however, can cause unfavorable conditions which may lead to premature failure during operational usage. Thus, the industry objective is to capitalize on compressive RS and prevent ...

  2. Temporary Crack Repairs for Aluminum Structures on Surface Ships

    SBC: GOUGEON BROTHERS, INC.            Topic: N151052

    Gougeon Brothers Inc. is submitting a proposal to address the need for a temporary repair procedure for 5xxx series aluminum U.S. Navy ship structures that have stress corrosion cracking issues. The proposal explains how an innovative toughened thixotropic epoxy adhesive can be used to wet out reinforcing fabrics to a surface with simple surface preparation. This concept takes advantage of the wor ...

  3. Best Value Suspension System

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N151003

    The Marine Corps desires a highly mobile amphibious vehicle that operates in harsh conditions on land and in ocean waters. The existing Amphibious Assault Vehicles suspension system limits sea mobility to around 8 knots, three times slower than that desired by the Marine Corps. Loc Performance Products, Inc. (Loc) proposes to develop its Best Value Suspension System (BVSS) with its partner Oneiric ...

  5. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  6. Counter Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Targeting (C-ISRT), Assessment for Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare (EMW) and Integrated Fire

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N151080

    There is a strong movement to add Non-Kinetic Fire COAs, such as Electronic Warfare attack and Computer Network Attack to the military planners toolbox. Because this new approach, called Integrated Fires (IF), integrates attack types from across traditionally separate planning disciplines it requires the creation of new planning methodologies and technologies. One key technology gap is in the Navy ...

  7. Innovative Approach to Rapidly Qualify Ti-6Al-4V Metallic Aircraft Parts Manufactured by Additive Manufacturing (AM) Techniques

    SBC: 3DSIM LLC            Topic: N151012

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is of increasing interest for production of Naval aircraft components. The geometric complexity, mechanical properties, and cost competitiveness for small lot production make AM techniques particularly suited for Ti-6Al-4V aircraft applications. However, microstructural and material property variability issues inherent to AM make rapid qualification of metal AM parts di ...

  8. Unit Adaptable TPS Resource Explorer (UARE)


    Define and develop a concept for the aggregation and analysis of Automatic Test Equipment (ATE)/Automatic Test System (ATS) and Test Program Sets (TPS) data for resource allocation. The evaluation of ATE resource allocation for a TPS is vital to process improvement. The proposed tool, Unit Adaptable TPS Resource Explorer (UARE), will mine TPS data and determine ATE resource allocation. Instrument ...

  9. Compact, Polarization Preserving Antennas for the 40-200 GHz Frequency Range

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N151076

    Electronically steered antenna arrays capable of forming multiple beams enable tracking and concurrent sensing of multiple, spatially diverse targets, thus providing significant advantage over dish antennas that have fixed, narrow beam patterns. To address the needs of the DoD, such antenna arrays must demonstrate high gain, low noise figure, and ultra-wideband operation. We have identified the an ...

  10. Resin Infusible Carbon Fiber Unidirectional Broadgoods for Fatigue Dominated Applications

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: N151072

    The development of a low-cost permeable unidirectional carbon fabric material without fiber undulation is needed in order to provide full property translation that is comparable to unidirectional prepreg. In this Phase I effort, Composites Automation LLC proposes to fabricate unidirectional carbon broadgood using thermoplastic binder with high enough permeability of the fabric to allow infusion pr ...
