  1. Real-Time Health Monitoring for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT:A Propellant Health Monitoring (PHM) Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) utilizes actual propellant components in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert.These sensors provide real-time data corresponding to mechanical property degradation resulting from environmental aging of propellants.The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and automatically track degradation passively without ...

  3. Advanced OSHA Compliant Blast Cleaning Rooms (No Blast/HM Residue Migration Outside Blast Cleaning Room)

    SBC: Figure Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF131197

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop blast cleaning enclosures (BCE) that eliminate exposure to hazardous materials (HM) due to substantial migration in and around the enclosure to increase the occupational health and safety of Air Force personnel. To achieve this cleaner safer BCE, typical operations and enclosures will be examined to identify mechanisms of HM generation and m ...

  4. Aircraft Maintenance Management to Unanticipated Failure Events

    SBC: Robbins-GIoia, LLC            Topic: AF131204

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force"s Air Logistics Centers (ALCs) are charged to maintain the fleet at maximum readiness. In order to achieve this goal, the ALCs perform aircraft scheduled maintenance using well-defined planning and scheduling processes and procedures by assigning MRO tasks to minimize the time an aircraft spends at the depot and the associated maintenance costs. However, the current system ...

  5. Integrated Aircraft Sensor Network for Real Time Leak Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF131206

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft damage resulting from environmental exposure and fluid leaks constitute a major portion of the costs associated with aircraft repairs and lead to significantly reduced mission readiness. The ability to identify contaminant exposure within airframes and inform maintenance personnel of leaks, corrosive environments, and chemical contaminants in difficult to access areas will all ...

  6. Non-Destructive Inspection for Medium Caliber Gun Barrel Fatigue Crack

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF141205

    ABSTRACT: Prime Photonics is developing an ultrasonically enhanced magnetic field detection system that will measure defects, voids and residual stresses in ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Successful development and deployment of this technology will enable on condition replacement of critical components, increasing safety and reducing cost. This product can also be part of an integrated logis ...

  7. Quantitative Gun Barrel Diagnostics with Remote Field Eddy Currents and Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF141205

    ABSTRACT: Gun barrels have a variety of failure modes that must be monitored over the life of a barrel. Fatigue cracking is one of the most critical failure modes and can result in catastrophic barrel rupture if not detected and addressed. Currently, there is no existing NDI method or equipment to assess fatigue cracking within the barrel wall. Luna"s proposed technique has the advantage of autom ...

  9. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: TORC Robotics, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    ABSTRACT: Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) have shown promise enhancing a number of military missions; however, most successful autonomous systems have been employed in highly structured environments. To enable operations in militarily relevant, unstructured environments at an operational tempo, a number of obstacle avoidance and planning challenges must be overcome. A viable autonomous system sh ...
