  2. Additive Manufacturing Process Monitoring and Control Technologies

    SBC: FLIGHTWARE INC            Topic: DLA181002

    The In Process Control for L-PBF (IPCL) program leverages and in process inspection method recently developed and successfully demonstrated for NASA. This Layer Topographic Map or LTM method measures the surface if every melt layer using a commercial laser profilometer. LTM software detects, locates and identifies flawed regions within a layer for every layer in the part. It does so for several co ...

  5. Economically Recovering Rare Earth Materials

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: DLA161003

    This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel process whereby rare earth metals can be extracted from industrial and post-consumer waste materials and then readily separated into the individual metals. Conventional procedures for accomplishing this difficult task typically employ numerous steps and generate large quantities of waste. Since the proposed process is based on p ...

  6. Real-time Automated Ply Inspection (RTAPI)

    SBC: FLIGHTWARE INC            Topic: DLA152001

    Real-time Automated Ply Inspection (RTAPI) is a layup inspection system that determines if the layup produced by an Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) machine meets drawing requirements. This is performed in real-time, while the machine is laying composite tapes onto the mold at very high speed, providing several benefits. As a fully automated system it eliminates very slow and tedious manual inspect ...

  8. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 861X

    Methane, is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas whose atmosphere concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm. Methane is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Even though its concentration in the atmosphere is more than 200 times lower than carbon dioxide, methane is responsible for 20% of the greenhouse effect. The main natural resources for methane include wetlands, termites and the o ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...
