  1. Active Transfer Learning for Intelligent Tutoring

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    We propose an intelligent assessment concept that will discover and reason about KSAs in multiple instruc-tional domains and settings. SoarTech will team with world-class researchers from the University of Califor-nia, Davis and the University of Memphis to research and develop TARGET: Transfer via Active Requests to Generalize Effective Training. TARGET will enhance SoarTechs assessment system DA ...

  2. Adaptive Diesel Engine Control Via Variable Valve Timing

    SBC: Electro Mechanical Associates Inc            Topic: N133148

    Large, open chamber Diesel engines are designed with compression ratios of 16 to 18:1 to facilitate cold starting. This is too high for best economy which is 14 to 15:1. Furthermore, these engines are designed for high power for highway vehicles with reserve for hill climbing and maneuvering. The objective is to demonstrate a combination of simple mechanisms designed for the Caterpillar C-12 to im ...

  3. Advanced NDI/E Tool for Residual Stress Management

    SBC: Proto Manufacturing Inc            Topic: N05120

    Fatigue properties of metallic aerospace structures are improved significantly by cold working to impart favorable compressive residual stresses (RS) at and near the surface. In Phases I and II, Proto designed and developed a first generation x-ray diffraction (XRD) based NDI/E tool to measure RS distributions surrounding cold-worked holes in aerospace structures. Subsequently, Proto self-funded a ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Amphibious Combat Vehicle Ramp Interface Modular Buoyant Kit (MBK) for Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) Stern Ramp

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: N152101

    Our team will develop and evaluate multiple solutions concepts for a new Modular Buoyant Kit (MBK) that will leverage a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing of the current JHSV stern ramp, launch and recovery systems used on various naval platforms such as littoral combat ship, and experience with the lightweight modular causeway system. The proposed effort leverages an innovative yet ...

  6. Automated Blade Repair

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF161117

    ABSTRACT: Metallic high pressure compressor (HPC) blades are a critical component in all jet engines and can incur erosional and impact damage during normal operations. During an engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) cycle, these blades are routinely removed from the engine, cleaned, inspected, and either repaired or replaced based on the type of damage and the repair capability available ...

  7. Best Value Suspension System

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N151003

    The Marine Corps desires a highly mobile amphibious vehicle that operates in harsh conditions on land and in ocean waters. The existing Amphibious Assault Vehicles suspension system limits sea mobility to around 8 knots, three times slower than that desired by the Marine Corps. Loc Performance Products, Inc. (Loc) proposes to develop its Best Value Suspension System (BVSS) with its partner Oneiric ...

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: N152116

    The feasibility of developing a photonics-based, real-time, high-power-radio-frequency (HPRF)/high-power-microwave (HPM) detection-and-analysis system is to be investigated. Design and development of foundational elements will take place to demonstrate how self-contained, shielded, photonic and source-power subsystems, interconnected to a network of non-polarimetric sensors via optical fiber, will ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Check Range Sensor Pod

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N131070

    US Navy submarines are carefully engineered to minimize their detectability by acoustic and electromagnetic (EM) sensors. Because the acoustic and EM signature of the sub can degrade over time, they are periodically measured at fixed test ranges. Providing the capability for a sub to assess its own signatures without transiting to one of these facilities would yield significant logistical and oper ...
