  1. High Speed CMC Laser Machining

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N06T012

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a high speed laser machining process for ceramic matrix composites. The recent development of high rate, high pulse power lasers and the non-contact nature of the PSI process minimize the damage typical of other laser machining processes. It also enables precise placement of through holes, trenches and identification markings. The goal of the Phase ...

  2. Thermally-Conductive Nanocomposite Elastomer Boot System (TCNEBS) for V-22 Rotor Blade Leading Edges

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N06T013

    The metal sheath used to protect the V-22 aircraft rotor blade leading edge against sand, rain and ice erosion, and provide heating to prevent ice buildup, is heavy, rigid and expensive. An elastomeric boot can offer lower weight, flexibility, abrasion-resistance and field repairability. However, elastomeric boots have exhibited delamination and creep failure caused by high centrifugal loads and ...

  3. Command and Control for Embedded Systems

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N06T004

    For many military operational scenarios there is an extremely large geographical theater. Providing coverage requires 100s to 1000s of sensing devices. Command and control (C2) of such a large number of devices, to provide time sensitive targeting (TST), poses a difficult technical challenge. Our solution to this problem is to use a hierarchy of unattended ground sensors (UGS). Ultra low-cost trig ...

  4. Fault Diagnostics, Prognostics, and Self-Healing Control of Navy Electric Machinery

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N06T033

    ACTA Incorporated and the Center for Systems Reliability (CSR) at Sandia National Laboratories propose a seven month STTR Phase I Project to demonstrate the feasibility of developing Fault Diagnostics, Prognostics, and Self-Healing Control of Navy Electric Machinery. The new generation of Navy high power electric ships and electro-mechanical machinery challenge the predictive maintenance of ships ...

  5. Maximizing the utility of high-resolution ensemble meteorological forecasts for planning and responding to hazardous releases

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N06T037

    The two primary motivations for this work are: First, to provide forecasts of dispersion of a hazardous release and associated uncertainty (or “error bars”) based on the available ensemble MET data. Second, to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool for decision makers supporting both deterministic and ensemble forecast MET data as well as resulting dispersion model forecasts. To achieve ...

  6. Delamination Resistant Coating System for Zinc Sulfide Domes and Windows, Utilizing a Compliant Layer.

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T014

    Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) is the most practical material for infrared transparent domes and windows operating at long wave infrared wavelength. Hard outer coatings have been applied to ZnS to protect it from rain and sand erosion. Theoretical analysis of multi-layer coatings suggests that a compliant layer between the hard outer coating and the ZnS surface may improve resistance to rain impact damage. In ...

  7. High-Power and Low Loss Mid-Wave IR Fiber-Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T039

    Agiltron, in collaboration with Tufts University, proposes to realize MWIR fiberoptic switches that meet all the required performance specifications for the new type of compact airborne IRCM applications. The approach is based on our extensive experience in volume production of fiberoptic switches of industrial leading performance as well as in-house chalcogenide glass fabrication capability. Th ...

  8. Portable High Resolution Imaging for NDI of Hot Section Aero Turbine Components

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N06T011

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of defects in gas turbine engines. While these defects adversely affect hot-section performance and reduce component life, they are difficult to detect and characterize without destructive inspection. The lack of detailed flaw detection and characterization raises safety concerns, hampers fleet readiness and negatively impacts the li ...

  9. Conventional Training Versus Game-Based Training

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N06T006

    Game-based training (GBT) has been touted as a promising medium for achieving improved training objective performance outcomes and increasing learner motivation, particularly in military training environments. However, there is little empirical research upon which to make informed decisions about when, where, or even if applying particular game elements to training is effective. The primary object ...

  10. Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06T021

    Off-board vehicles deployed in littoral environments are subjected to severe operational loads, including wave slamming, high-speed collision with debris, and underwater explosions. They additionally serve as sensor platforms, and would benefit from reduced self- and radiated noise for towed array performance and mine defense. Consequently, we propose to exploit the flexibility of design offered ...
