  4. Aerodynamic/Structural Mistuning Technologies for Assessing IBR/Blisk Repairs

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: N06T015

    New technologies for assessing how blending affects structural and aerodynamic mistuning will be developed using the combined strengths of Blade Diagnostics Corporation and Duke University. BDC has developed an approach for identifying aerodynamic mistuning from engine data that will be further developed under this STTR. Duke will develop new methods for computing the effect of blending on the a ...

  5. Single Crystal Piezoelectric Tonpilz Elements for Small Footprint, High Power Acoustic Sensors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N04T033

    The objective of the Phase II program is to demonstrate that single crystal piezoelectrics are a viable approach for small footprint, broadband and high power acoustic sensors. The objective will begin by down selecting between potential high performance compositions based on the technological merits (likelihood of achieving >100% bandwidth, required source level, electrical power requirements, e ...

  6. Expanded Operating Domain Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06T034

    For this Phase I STTR program, TRS proposes to investigate the synthesis of new single crystal piezoelectric compositions that will operate at higher temperature, higher electric field and/or higher stress than current state-of-the-art PMN-PT single crystals. PMN-PT single crystals are readily available for certain applications, however a broader operating range would allow for greater device des ...

  7. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  9. MAVIS: A Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate, implement and demonstrate MAVIS, a 3D vision system incorporating robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low qual ...

  10. Broadband Vibration Power Harvesting for Encrypted Wireless Sensor Systems

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06T020

    KCF Technologies will develop compact Broadband Vibration Power Harvesting devices to enable Navy distributed wireless sensor systems. Building on KCF's ongoing work in low-cost vibration power harvesting for industrial wireless sensors, a primary technical advance is to develop a harvester with "broadband" performance over unknown or changing vibration sources. The power harvester will be devel ...
