  1. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  2. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...

  3. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  5. Automating Ship Assembly Planning and Simulation

    SBC: ATLANTEC ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N06173

    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can help U.S. shipyards reduce cost and schedule risks. A major barrier to employing DES in shipyards is the overwhelming task of modeling production facilities and work content. Another obstacle is large data volumes generated for shipbuilding can seriously degrade system performance. The goals of this project are to reduce manual data input for simulation by at le ...

  6. A Common, Low-Cost HF Submarine Sonar Projector

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07066

    TRS Technologies, Inc. and Nothrop Grumman Undersea Systems (NGUS) propose to develop and test a single crystal sonar array that adds transmit capability to the currently proposed receive array for the Virginia-class submarine. The goal of this program will be to adapt the added capability to the current form factor, thereby getting maximum return for minimal modifications and interface changes. B ...

  7. Single Crystal 1-3 Composite Projectors for MCM Applications

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    TRS Technologies and the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State propose to build on high frequency (>100 kHz) single crystal, 1-3 composite projector work developed in the Phase I program for sonar in unmanned vehicles. The high bandwidth exhibited by the composite, and potential for increased source level could greatly improve data collection, while limiting impact on vehicle volume. In the Ph ...

  8. Cost-Effective Fabrication of Piezoelectric Single Crystals Device Elements

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06083

    For this Phase II effort TRS Technologies, Inc., in collaboration with Rochester University, the Pennsylvania State University Electro-Optics Center and Penn State Applied Research Laboratory, will develop manufacturing processes to fabricate single crystal piezoelectric components with Zero Surface Defects (ZSD). During Phase I we showed that such crystals have 3 times the mechanical strength of ...

  9. Submarine Launched Acoustic Communication Buoy using Single Crystal Sonar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    For this Phase II SBIR program, TRS Technologies and Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems (UEOS) will team to design, build and test a buoy system for acoustic communications. Segmented single crystal rings for a 3" form factor will be made to provide a wide bandwidth for operation at two distinct frequency bands. TRS and UEOS will also team with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to integrate the ...

  10. Energetic Secondary Fuel Injection for Propulsion System Performance Improvement

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07082

    A joint analytical/experimental program to develop technologies to improve thermal output from combustors in propulsion systems while ensuring their stable operation is proposed. The program will exploit the use of energetic materials as secondary fuels to be injected suitably into the combustors to both increase their thermal output and ensure the mitigation of any instability that may arise in t ...
