  1. Rapid, Low-Cost, Reformable Tooling for Prototyping and Short-run Manufacturing of Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03049

    The proposing company's reformable, reusable tooling can substantially reduce the time, cost and effort associated with conventional or alternative tooling while providing the flexibility for prototyping iterations, short-run or low rate manufacture through lengthy product cycles. This Phase II project addresses the use of reformable tooling materials and tooling systems for the production of prot ...

  2. Field-deployable, Reformable Tooling System for Repair, Replacement or Prototyping of Composite Structures

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03045

    The use of reformable, reusable tooling can greatly reduce the time, cost and skills required for conventional tooling production, and no waste products are generated since the tooling materials themselves can be rapidly cycled from a hard tooling-capable state to a liquid-like state and back to the tool-capable state. We are proposing to create a new, lightweight, rapid tooling system for proto ...

  3. Real-Time Optical Smoke Meters

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF03257

    The SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) 1179C is the regulatory method for determining the exhaust Smoke Number from jet engines. This methodology is slow and cumbersome and requires handling and analyzing paper filters which have been exposed to the jet engine exhaust effluent which has been transported via a sampling rake and heated sample lines. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. suc ...

  4. Innovative TBC Blade Imaging System for Surface Temperature Mapping

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04288

    Sensors are vital during advanced turbine engine development testing. Sensor data expedite engine development programs and bring new advanced propulsion and ground-power engines to market sooner. Ceramic thermal barrier coating (TBC) on first-stage turbine blades is now a vital component of advanced engines under development for future military aircraft, protecting the underlying metal alloy blade ...

  5. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer currently under design features amongst its extensive sensor suite an innovative dual (high frequency and mid-frequency) frequency, active bow sonar. One of the primary missions of the high frequency (HF) component of the bow-sonar will be in-stride mine avoidance. Advanced signal processing algorithms, developed for predecessor sonars aboard modern US submarine ...

  6. Low Cost Corrosion/Corrosivity Sensor Systems For Ground Vehicles

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: OSD04C14

    This proposal develops an extremely low cost fiber grating corrosion sensor system that could be deployed on a vehicle. Costs are estimated to be approximately $0.25 per sensor in volume allowing hundreds to be deployed if necessary on difficult to access areas of a ground vehicle. In order to keep costs to an absolute minimum it is anitipated that the read out unit would be maintenance rather t ...

  7. Automated Strike Package Planning System

    SBC: BONN CORP.            Topic: N01181

    The goals of this Phase II SBIR include development of a strike planning deconfliction system, providing a real-time implementation for replanning, providing a mechanism to deconflict with fallout of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), and providing a scalable and extensible mechanism to support multiple levels of decision echelons. The development of the Strike Planning and Deconfliction (SPAD) p ...

  8. Distributed Relational Modeling for Counterspace Situation Awareness

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF03037

    CleverSet proposes to apply the variable-resolution Bayesian technology developed in Phase I to distributed counterspace situation awareness. Variable-resolution modeling provides the proven effectiveness of Bayesian data fusion in an efficient, scalable, distributed architecture. A recent breakthrough, relational Bayesian networks, provides an underlying entity-relationship data model, providin ...

  9. Innovations in Multiple Hypothesis Tracking

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: SB041026

    Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) is an increasingly important element of the sensor-to-shooter computational chain. However, modern MHT methods are still limited in their ability to integrate multiple sources of information to reduce ambiguity, and in their ability to sustain multiple hypotheses over long periods of time. These limitations reduce the quality of products delivered by MHT systems. ...

  10. Improved Composite Duct Design for Increased Safety Margin or Weight Reduction

    SBC: CONVERGENCE ENGINEERING CORP.            Topic: AF02176

    Practical methodologies were developed in Phase 1 to efficiently design nonlinear composite ducts and panels with large anomalies and cutouts for buckling, will be verified in Phase II with a comprehensive test/analysis correlation program. The analysis system is automated and integrated into the ANSYS finite element code using its macro language capabilities, including parameterized shell and sol ...
