  1. Full-Scale Near-Field Acoustic Holography for Reduction of Annoyance and Disturbance

    SBC: SOUND ANSWERS, INC.            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:Noise levels of military jet aircraft have significantly increased as the power of the engines has increased creating a community noise issue around military airfields. Current noise monitoring requirements only measure sound pressure levels which do not correlate to human annoyance / disturbance. Sound Answers plans to apply their extensive Sound Quality background to establish new acous ...

  2. Broadband, Real-Time Non-Intrusive High-Power-Microwave Near-Felds Mapping System

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF151025

    ABSTRACT:The feasibility of developing a photonics-based real-time high-power-microwave (HPM) near-field mapping system is to be investigated. The system is intended to contain multiple non-intrusive near-field sensors so that it can simultaneously detect undistorted versions of broadband HPM electric- and magnetic-field transients over a desired field-mapping area. The system will be able to take ...

  6. Hypersonic Materials Selection and Integration Tools

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: AF151191

    ABSTRACT:Advancements in propulsion systems, aerodynamics, and flight control capabilities are enabling hypersonic vehicles to operate at high speeds and altitudes. Therefore, significant new demands are placed on the materials used for constructing a hypersonic system due to the harsh environment created by the high speeds. An integrated design approach that considers the design, the processing, ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Differential Characterization of Atmospheric Turbulence System (DCATS)

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to design an airborne system for characterizing long range profiles of the state of optical turbulence in the atmosphere. This system will exploit GTRIs differential image motion (DIM) LIDAR technique for measuring profiles of the refractive index structure characteristic as well as scintillation ana ...

  9. E-Field Sensor for Submarine Detection

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N15AT004

    A major challenge in MAD for submarine detection is the separation of the background magnetic noise from the magnetic field anomalies caused by a submarine. Virtual EM Inc., in partnership with the University of Michigan (UM), proposes to develop a novel electric field sensor system for measurement of the background magnetic noise by correlating the magnetic field background noise with the changin ...

  10. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material selection criteria, proportioning methods and mixing pro ...
