  1. A Noninvasive Sensor/Control Suite for Health Monitoring and Extended Life of Aircraft Generation Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N06T007

    Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a suite of tools will be developed to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health management system (PHM) for aircraft generators and associated electrical systems. The PHM will be based upon a set of recently developed tools that include a novel ...

  2. Adjustable Attachment Device for Aircraft Blankets

    SBC: HILLIER DEVELOPMENT            Topic: N06016

    A simple clamping U bracket to secure itself under pressure on both sides of the aircraft's structural frame ribs. A clamp will be placed on every section where the bonded studs currently exist. A cavity on the bottom of each clamp will hold a stud or other tool to secure the blankets. The outer surface of the bracket will be made of rubber and the inner core will be made of 9255 spring steel, ...

  3. Advanced Stress Measurement Technologies for Small Turbine Engines

    SBC: AERODYN ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A04083

    Aerodyn Engineering proposes to develop a new concept in slip ring design that could operate up to 90,000 RPM with 50 contacts (25 channels), be capable of handling temperatures up to 700°F without external cooling support, weigh less than 2 lb, and be designed to directly support new developments in small turbo-shaft engines.

  4. AIMS: Agent-based Information Management System

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: AF05105

    Information Management is an important component in the development of viable information sharing systems, such as JBI, where shared information may be manipulated to derive further information. The qualities of such derived information depend on qualities of the contributing information and of their sources. Determining information quality requires propagation of qualitative and pedigree data abo ...

  5. Aircraft Electrical Power System Diagnostics and Health Management

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N06T007

    The military is actively implementing diagnostics, prognostics, and health management technologies across platforms in an effort to reduce maintenance costs, increase readiness and availability, and improve safety. In aircraft electric power systems, the largest maintenance driver is the generator, followed by the batteries. Common faults include winding shorts, pitting and spalling in bearings, a ...

  6. AlGaInP/GaAs 27% Efficient Top Solar Cells

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower will develop a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell composed of (AlxGa1-x)0.51 In(0.49)P, which is lattice matched to GaAs, as the top cell in a three-junction, two-terminal tandem solar cell. This new tunable bandgap Al-Ga-In-P material is capable of current matching in a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell two-terminal design of the Al-Ga-In-P over GaAs yielding a best case ...

  7. AlGaP/GaP Heterostructure Ultraviolet Detector

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower is developing a highly sensitive UV detector based on epitaxial AlGaP/GaP heterostructures, a promising new material system for ultraviolet detectors. Detecting ultraviolet light is important to spectrophotometry, astronomy, high-energy physics, medicine, UV curing, photoresist exposure, and chemical processes. The large bandgap and crystalline quality of gallium phosphide will provide ...

  8. Automated Reasoner Technology for Managing Military Aircraft

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N06023

    The F-35 prognostic health management (PHM) system will generate a large volume of data on current and predicted component health. Tools are needed to automatically assimilate and analyze this data, and present findings and recommended actions to the user. These automated reasoner tools are necessary to ensure that PHM data is utilized for maximum benefit, to allow maintainers to focus on maintena ...

  9. Cognitive Technology for Advanced Maintenance

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N06108

    Although prognostic health monitoring systems for the mechanical aspects of the LAV-25 are currently under development, a comparable system for diagnosis of the electrical and weapons systems does not exist. System diagnosis is an expertise-based craft that is easily lost when turnover rates (due to promotion or personnel leaving the Corps) are rapid. Built in test (BIT) and built in test equipm ...

  10. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T005

    While guidelines for stable combustion in certain engine cycles and propellant combinations exist; there is no proven, mechanistic predictive model, particularly for high-performance liquid hydrocarbon-fueled engines. IN Space and Purdue propose to fill this critical need by developing a “testbed” consisting of 1) a predictive combustion stability design tool to mitigate the risk of generating ...
