  2. Direct Part Manufacturing (DPM) for Nonstructural Components

    SBC: PARAMOUNT INDUSTRIES            Topic: AF081C043

    Paramount Industries Inc. has an extensive knowledge of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). Paramount Industries understands that material performance and mechanical properties of a given SLS material are directly correlated to multiple material and process parameters that must be optimized in order to achieve desired performance characteristics. Paramount Industries Inc. successfully proved the feas ...

  4. Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Maintenance and Life Management

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF081056

    BDC is developing a process called SMART BLEND(TM) for inspecting blended IBRs/Blisks. IBRs are susceptible to foreign object damage and blending is a relatively low cost method using machining to repair that damage.  The difficulty is that blending changes the geometries of the blades so that they no longer meet specifications.  More specifically, blending changes the frequencies of the blades ...

  5. Satellite Structures with Engineered or Variable Electomagnetic Properties

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF073102

    A novel methodology is proposed for the integration of nanomaterials into structural composite materials, to engineer multi-spectrum (microwave, IR, and optical) electromagnetic properties.   The process is general and a wide range of EM properties can be achieved, such as absorption, reflection, switchable properties, etc.  It is also possible to engineer multiple properties in the same struct ...

  6. Micro Games for Cyber Threat Awareness

    SBC: Wombat Security Technologies            Topic: AF083032

    Our goal is to develop a web-based platform that can (1) host a collection of micro games for security training, (2) simplify the task of developing games by providing useful features, (3) help administrators manage and deploy micro games, and (4) help analysts visualize and drill down on data. For phase I, we will demonstrate the feasibility of our ideas. We will use a human-centered approach in ...

  7. Adaptive Phase Management and Mixing Enhancement

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08E10

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Texas A&M University (TAMU), proposes to develop a Momentum-driven Vortex Separator (MVS) technology for vapor and liquid management for the advanced vapor cycle Thermal Management Systems (TMS). The MVS developed at TAMU is a single component, two-phase management device that has been successfully demonstrated in various acceleration environ ...

  8. FADEC Cooling Using High Temperature Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF073049

    The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation.  It is historically mounted on the engine case to minimize the routing length of the sensor and actuator wiring.  The FADEC must be maintained below 70°C, while the environment can be as hot as 170°C.  The current design uses fuel to cool the FADEC, however, this often limits the allowable ground or flight idle time ...

  9. A Novel Microwave Sensor for Non- Destructive Evaluation of Silicon Nitride Bearing Balls

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF083109

    In this proposal, Alphasense, Inc. details the development of a novel microwave NDE sensor for defect inspections in silicon nitride bearing balls. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) the use of the spherical bearing ball as a dielectric resonator, thus enabling us to correlate the resonance characteristics of the bearing ball with various defects; b) the measurements in ...

  10. Thermal Microwave Signature of Rocket Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: AF083256

    A physics-based method for computing the passive microwave spectrum emitted by rocket engine exhaust plumes is proposed. Microwave emissions have an advantage over infrared for early detection of missile and rocket launches due to their superiority in penetrating through clouds, dust, and fog. The primary technical approach will be based on a well known model called bremsstrahlung, braking radiati ...
