  1. Heat Pipe Cooling of Underwater Acoustic Projectors

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N08T020

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop an innovative thermal solution to cool underwater acoustic projectors. More efficient cooling of the acoustic projectors will allow the devices to run at longer duty cycles, higher output powers and with longer service life. Current acoustic projectors use thermal conduction through the transducer parts to dissipate the waste hea ...

  2. Innovative Approaches to the Development of Corrosion Resistant Aircraft Alloys

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: N08T010

    Aluminum alloys are known to suffer from Stress Corrosion Cracking(SCC). SCC of high strength alloys can proceed rapidly, and can lead to devastating structural failures. However, a solid understanding of combined interactions of metallurgical, environmental and mechanical factors surrounding the crack tip during SCC is still elusive. Therefore, Al alloy developement for high corrosion resistance ...

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

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: N06T015

    Blade-to-blade variations in frequencies lead to the phenomenon of mistuning. Even very small amounts of mistuning can cause some blades to vibrate much more than others. Mistuning can cause an amplification of resonant response by up to 400 percent, and has been identified as a primary factor in HCF failures. One issue in setting blend limits is whether or not the blending operation will exacerba ...

  5. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The overall goal of this STTR program is to develop an efficient, high-fidelity, CFD-based design tool for the simulation of ship-board flight testing of autonomous UAV systems. In Phase I, an overall flight simulation framework that employs a modular approach to the flight simulation problem was developed. The effort was successful in demonstrating a lower-cost aerodynamic modeling approach tha ...

  6. Inlet Design and Performance for Supersonic Cruise/Hypersonic Operation Vehicles

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T011

    The inlet section of a high speed supersonic (Mach 2 to 5+) missile captures and compresses the free stream flow, slowing it down to subsonic speeds (through a normal shock) where it is fed into the combustor section. Through the use of design optimization and high-fidelity CFD analysis, CRAFT Tech and University of Minnesota are developing a new tool for high-speed inlet design that will evaluate ...

  7. Novel Biomarkers Assessment in the Progression from Androgen Dependent Prostate Cancer to Androgen Independent Prostate Cancer

    SBC: IMMUNOTOPE, INC.            Topic: A08T041

    Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in males. Treatment with androgen ablation therapy after radical prostatectomy (RP) eventually leads to relapse and development of androgen-independent disease. Patients with androgen independent prostate cancer experience high morbidity and morality. At present, the ability to monit ...

  8. Broadband Vibration Power Harvesting for Encrypted Wireless Sensor Systems

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06T020

    KCF Technologies will develop compact Power Harvesting devices to enable Navy distributed wireless sensor systems. The power harvester will be developed as an enabling component in RLW Inc.’s S5NAPTM wireless sensor. The target application, in collaboration with JCI/YNS, is Condition Based Maintenance of AC plants on Navy ships and submarines. Follow-on applications will expand the deployment ...

  10. Mo-Si-B-XX Alloys for High Temperature Service

    SBC: Pittsburgh Materials Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF07T003

    A study of Mo-Si-B-XX alloys for high temperature structural applications is proposed. The material for such applications require strength, ductility, toughness, fatigue and creep resistance, and oxidation resistance. The Mo-Si-B alloy system provides an opportunity to develop desired properties. The alloy processing and microstructure synthesis will be pursued. The deformation mechanisms wil ...
