  2. Portable Active Damage Inspection (PADI) system for stress-corrosion cracks in aerospace structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF073109

    Safety, reliability, and life-cycle cost are of great concern to the aging aircraft manufacturing and maintenance industries. Acellent Technologies proposes to develop an accurate, reliable integrated system for detection, prediction and mitigation of aging and manufacturing related hazards in civilian and military aircraft. The objective of the proposed program will be to provide the U.S. Air For ...

  3. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings


    Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of the windscreen, leading to high maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, ITO is applie ...

  4. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06298

    A system for high-resolution, real-time (40Hz), non-invasive wind tunnel attitude and deformation measurement is proposed. The system combines projection of structured laser light with photography of the illuminated surface. Photogrammetric techniques are used to obtain the three dimensional shape of the surface. Whereas most structured light systems employ a repeating pattern of lines, the prop ...

  5. Short Pulse Neutron Generator

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF073009

    A short-pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of concealed high explosives. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 5-10 ns with a repetition rate of 100 kHz. Using the D-T nuclear reaction, we expect the proposed generator to produce an average yield of 10E9 n/s at this pulse length and rate ...

  6. Development of Flow-Field Seeding for Large Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: AF06297

    The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity, and compliment nonintrusive flow visualization techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) ...

  7. Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: AF081069

    In this SBIR proposal ASC is offering to develop a UAV Sense and Avoid system that will combine ASC’s existing Flash 3D video sensor with Carnegie Mellons 2D optical sensor and avoidance software. In Phase I, ASC, working with Carnegie Mellon, will collect UAV-relevant data with its existing Flash Ladar Video Camera (FLVC) and with CMU’s EO sensor. ASC will utilize this data and simulation a ...

  8. Optical Void Sensing for Deeply Buried Hardened Target Penetrators

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071146

    Aerius Photonics proposes an optical void sensor that will meet the objectives of the Air Force for a survivable, reliable, non-inertial void detector for deeply buried hardened target penetrators. The sensor approach draws low power, is compact and has the potential for precise distance ranging, void counting, void measurements, and pseudo void imaging in cluttered environments. To achieve this ...

  10. Novel Heat Exchanger Materials for Fuel-Air Cooler Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: AF073056

    Open cell foam, which provides the highest heat transfer surface areas per unit volume, is considered as an excellent heat exchanger core material. Pyrolytic Carbon coated reticulated vitreous carbon (RVC) foam, which offers highly conductive foam ligaments and is available in different pore sizes and density, provides wide design options. A hybrid heat exchanger composed of carbon foam as heat tr ...
