  1. Terminally Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Variation Reduction Solutions Inc            Topic: AF063C011

    Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) has a contract with Lockheed Martin to design, build, and produce the center fuselage section of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF F-35). There are three ducts which are the primary components of this section – the aft duct and two forward (inlet) ducts – right and left. Due to their length, curvature, and extremely tight constraints, the RH & LH inlet ducts pr ...

  2. Portable Highly Mobile Autonomous Robot for Mine Detection

    SBC: JADI, INC.            Topic: A03214

    In this project, a new TOA/TDOA UWB RAC location system will be developed and applied to precision guidance and navigation of autonomous mine-detection mobile robots. The system will be capable of pinpointing geographical position of an object with accuracies from a few centimeters to a few meters over an area of several to hundred square kilometers at a position update rate of over 200 updates pe ...

  4. Instant-Blackening Laser Protection Material Based on Combinatorial Linear and Nonlinear Approaches

    SBC: OXAZOGEN, INC.            Topic: A06217

    To date, there are no light-activated instant-blackening optical materials available for use in eye and sensor protection that can properly integrate with other essential equipment. This SBIR Phase II proposal will build upon the desirable material properties obtained in Phase I, with an emphasis on optimization of OPL effects required to proceed towards full fledged prototype for field testing an ...

  5. Collision Avoidance for Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06149

    It is proposed to further develop, flight demonstrate and transition a robust capability to autonomously detect and avoid obstacles typically encountered in flight by fixed or rotary wing micro air vehicles during low-altitude urban operations. There are two basic elements: (1) continually detecting and modeling the observable 3-D obstacle field in real-time, and (2) autonomously guiding the vehic ...

  6. Development of High-Resolution Virtual Terrain for Use in a Motion-Based Simulator with an Image Generator

    SBC: REALTIME TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03224

    Visual Simulation, Training, and Virtual Prototyping platforms demand ever increasing fidelity in their presentations. Visual cues such as lighting and shading, shadows, and distinguishable surface contour must be presented to offer a sense of depth and realism in the environment. High performance dynamics models require access to the surface contour at a sub-polygonal level to be correlated wit ...

  8. Innovative Structural Joining Concepts and Analysis Techniques

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: AF06234

    A new structural joining technique is under development which employs a massive number of nanomaterials to achieve unique combinations of properties. One-dimensional nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanohelices, etc.) are anchored onto the opposite faces of the joint, and compatibly functionalized and engaged to form chemical bonds over their tremendous surface areas. The exceptional mechanical, physic ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Adhesive Microstructure

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: AF06148

    Bio-inspired adhesives are under development which employ nanofibrillar structures for reliable and strong adhesion to various substrates. Applications toward micro air vehicle locomotion and in broader dry adhesives markets are emphasized. Biological adhesives (employed by gecko, spider, etc.) rely on multi-scale structures with nanofibrillar contact elements for effective adhesion to rough or ...
