  2. A Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...

  4. A16-010 Laser-scanned FPI with Custom-Engineered Quantum Dot Penetrant for Bore Inspection

    SBC: Laser Techniques Company, LLC            Topic: A16010

    Fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) is a commonly-used non-destructive evaluation (NDE) method for the detection of microscopic cracks.However, conventional FPI has serious limitations including the potential of hydrogen embrittlement, which can result in post-inspection damage to the parts being inspected.Additionally, small bores and tubes are very difficult to inspect using visual FPI method ...

  7. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    Plasmonic metamaterials, composed of patterned metallic and dielectrics, can be engineered to have interesting optical properties that are attractive for a range of advanced obscurant applications. These particles are typically fabricated on planar surfaces, since patterning planar surfaces to achieve the desired effects is relatively straightforward.However, for planar geometries the particles op ...

  9. Analog to Information Processing

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: N162082

    Alphacore proposes to design and implement the desired Analog to Information Processor (AIP) converter capable of directly converting RF (radio frequency) signals to information. Analog to feature/direct-information converters has been widely researched across various methods of implementation (including use of optics, magnetic field storage and so on). The hardware implementation of such systems ...

  10. Applying a User-Centered Design Process to the Creation of an Electronic Kneeboard Application Suite

    SBC: Applied Technical Systems Inc.            Topic: N161016

    Pre-flight and in-flight activities require pilots to carry voluminous materials, such as maps and charts, and utilize commercial applications that do not provide mission-specific information. This creates issues for the pilot by occupying physical space in the cockpit and forcing them to use multiple sources to complete their duties. By developing an electronic kneeboard application suite for the ...
