  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

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071103

    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 Novel Cooling and Temperature Monitoring for High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Coating Applications

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF073121

    Temperature control is a major concern during High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) processing in the aerospace industry. Typically, temperature must not exceed 300oF to prevent heat damage/ tempering of the substrates for steel alloys, and even lower temperature requirements for aluminum and titanium alloys. Shop air cooling has traditionally been the most widely utilized temperature control cooling ...

  7. Development of Cad Plating Replacement with Alkaline Zinc-Nickel Electroplating for Threaded Fasteners/Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF081101

    Aircraft structure and propeller systems utilize both high and low strength steel, cad plated threaded components and fasteners throughout its structure. Threaded joints and fasteners manufactured from these alloys require sacrificial protective coatings due to the corrosive environment. Cadmium (Cd) has been the baseline coating for such threaded joints and fasteners for many years due to its ...

  8. Restoration of Dimensional Tolerances

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF073115

    When the inner diameter (ID) of aluminum landing gear outer cylinders is worn or damaged there is very little that can be done to repair the damage consequently the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. The aircraft industry condemns many aluminum strut outer cylinders at a high cost. The cost to the USAF alone is of approximately $3M per years. The main cause for condemn ...

  9. Development of Castings for Landing Gear aluminum forgings

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071318

    Landing gear designs utilize forgings for structural applications, to maximize properties and minimize weight. Although this approach allows for minimal component weight and size, forgings commonly have extended procurement lead time, and are usually an expensive manufacturing method. Phase I of this effort provided compelling evidence that the newly developed Intermetallic-strengthened Martensi ...

  10. Development of Cad Plating Replacement with Zinc Nickel on High Strength Steel Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071320

    Landing gear components manufactured from high strength steel alloys require sacrificial protective coatings to perform safely in service. Cadmium has been the standard coating for such components for decades, but is a known carcinogen and has been targeted for elimination by the USAF. An experimental Zn-Ni coating was tested in Phase I as a replacement for cadmium. Results showed the Zn-Ni coati ...
