  2. Residual Property Prediction for Damage Composite Structures


    Compression After Impact (CAI) response is widely used for characterizing damage tolerance of aerospace grade composite materials in structural design. Since impact induced damage is not readily visible in many instances, quantification of residual stiffness and strength under different service conditions following impact is critical for ensuring structural safety until the component or the struct ...

  3. Optical Sensor Suite for Anchoring Debris Models

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: MDA11042

    The Missile Defense Agency is seeking debris ejection data during the post burn-out period of a solid rocket motor in an exoatmospheric environment for the development and verification of analytic models. Currently little is understood of debris ejection during this phase of the solid rocket burn. Control Vision, Inc. proposes developing a sensor suite containing an infrared microbolometer-based f ...

  4. Heat Resistant Visual Landing Aid (VLA) Lighting Fixtures for Ship Flight Decks and Expeditionary Air Field (EAF) Matting

    SBC: Breault Research Organization, Inc.            Topic: N102132

    Visual Landing Aids on air capable ships and aircraft carrier flight decks are required for night and/or low visibility aircraft operations for general lighting, navigation, flight deck, and special purposes. Future aircraft are expected to have hotter exhaust that could threaten the integrity of these lighting fixtures. During Phase 1, two conceptual LED illumination designs were developed and vi ...

  7. Resources Management in Peer-to-Peer Mobile Ad Hoc Network Communications Environments

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: A12047

    Tactical Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) offer exciting new capabilities for flexible, rapidly deployable peer-to-peer communications, and they require cutting-edge innovations to function. Network management is a particular challenge, because the MANETs that form the"last mile"of next-generation networks face unique constraints: highly dynamic topology, limited bandwidth, unpredictable connectivi ...

  8. Satellite Optical Backplane

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF103097

    ABSTRACT: there is a clear need for a radically new interconnect architecture that minimizes the routing delay through the backplane to enable increased performance, reduced costs, and faster time to market. To this end, we propose the development of a space compatible optically interconnected backplane with reconfigurable routing fabric. By removing the electrical interconnections between logi ...

  9. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars with Option

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    Sponsored by NAVAIR, Accudyne Systems completed a Phase 1 SBIR program, developing an equipment and process concept for cost-effective fabrication of composite rotary wing main rotor blade spars. The CH-53K spar was the study focus. The recommended work cell concept combines automated tape placement, woven fabric placement, and pick and place of 45° parallelograms to layup plies, then debulk and ...

  10. IR Transmitting Aspheric Window Optics from Spinel Ceramics

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N121087

    MER plans to produce 12 diameter hyper-hemispherical domes and 10 diameter aspheric lenses of transparent spinel for the optic purposes during this program. Spinel was chosen because of its properties such as high transmission in the UV-Vis and Mid-IR wavelength range of 0.2 5.5 m, it is very resistant to abrasion, with density higher than 99.95% of theoretical, with very fine and uniform grain s ...
