  1. Fretting Wear Elimination in Gear Box Housings

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF05129

    A new high-performance anti-wear coating is being developed under an SBIR program with the Air Force Research Laboratorys Materials Directorate for the Joint Strike Fighter.  This coating is based on the Micro-Plasma Oxidation process, which is a high-voltage electrochemical process of oxidation which creates micro discharges on the surface of the part immersed in an electrolyte.  This results i ...

  2. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train.  The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature f ...

  4. Radio Frequency (RF) Tomography for Reduction of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Threat

    SBC: REMSENSE, INC.            Topic: AF083145

    This proposal address the applicability of the RF tomography concept to the detection of IEDs. In the proposal, RemSense, Inc. presents a clear Phase I path to establishing the RF tomography concept for this use by presenting a preliminary overview of the potential algorithms used for the concept. Further, RemSense has arranged a teaming agreement with FIRST RF corporation to take measurement da ...

  5. Fretting Wear Elimination for Titanium Components

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF083072

    The development of the F-35 Lift Fan has revealed the possibility of fretting between the fan input shaft bearing OD surface and the titanium bearing supports in the Lift Fan gearbox housing.  A steel insert is currently used to provide protection against fretting of the gearbox housing.  In order to provide an effective solution and reduce the overall weight of the F-35, IBC Materials and Techn ...

  7. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    The combination of complex physics and extremely severe combustor environments presents a formidable challenge to engineers who must ensure that high-pressure, high-performance rocket engines are stable from combustion instabilities.  We propose here an improved methodology for predicting the combustion stability of oxidizer-rich staged-combustion engines.   The methodology integrates high-fide ...

  8. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  9. COMPREHENSIVE JP-8 MECHANISM FOR VITIATED FLOWS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE ENERGY SOLUTION            Topic: AF081057

    Despite the importance of jet fighter afterburner designs, there exists very little data on the majority of the individual components of jet fuel, especially JP-8, to enable development of a detailed kinetic mechanism. Although the Multi University Research Initiative program has been initiated for that purpose, it is oriented for the main engine combustor where the process is different from after ...

  10. Full Multiplex Holographic Display (FMHD)

    SBC: MNB TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF083019

    Our novel, holistic approach to real time synthetic holography will result in an end-to-end solution for synthesis and presentation of large format high definition polychromatic holograms at video frame rates.  Since a holographic display without an associated system for interference pattern synthesis from non-holographic source media is of limited value, we propose parallel development of the la ...
