  1. Fault-to-Failure Progression Modeling of Propulsion System and Drive Train Bearings for Prognostic and Useful Performance Life Remaining Predictions

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N02195

    Military and commercial aircraft operators are moving toward predictive maintenance to minimize costs while maximizing asset availability and safety. Key technological prerequisites for this new approach are the ability to monitor the condition of critical components, and the ability to accurately forecast their remaining useful life. Phase I of this project clearly demonstrated the feasibility of ...

  2. Carbon Foam Composite Tooling


    Touchstone Research Laboratory has developed a novel material, CFOAMr. The primary enabling carbon foam characteristic is that the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) values are comparable to carbon fiber polymer matrix systems in manufacturing advanced composites. Other advantages of carbon foam-based tools are low mass, reduced energy, easy modifications, unmatched repair capabilities, and r ...

  4. Coal-Based Porous Graphite for Aerospace Heat Exchanger Applications


    A newly developed "coal-based" porous graphite material has been recently produced. This development is a direct result of Touchstone Research Laboratory's Phase I funding to develop enhanced-strength carbon foam heat-exchanger materials for aerospace applications since low density carbon foams cannot endure high bleed air pressures in aerospace pre-coolers and heat exchangers. The newly develope ...

  5. Improved Life Prediction of Turbine Engine Components

    SBC: PEREGRINE CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: AF03112

    The purpose of the proposed Phase II research is to develop a prototype of the TFLAMES core software model. This model and attendant sub-routines will make it possible to calculate the stress and life of each individual engine component using actual flight data in near-real time, replacing the current method of using analysis of generic missions and bookkeeping Total Accumulated Cycles (TAC). In ...

  6. Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler


    Development of an Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler with enhanced optical triggering capability is proposed, following a highly successful Phase I effort that clearly demonstrated feasibility. The threat of a bioaerosol attack can be partially mitigated by deployment of a cost-effective sensor network. High priority programs, such as BioWatch and Portal Shield will benefit from a sensor compliant to Join ...

  9. Advanced Divert and Attitude Control Materials, Attitude Control System (ACS) Thruster Body Application

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: MDA03087

    Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI), teamed with Aerojet, proposes to demonstrate a low cost material concept applicable to the SM-3 ACS. The material, a 4-dimensionally reinforced carbon-carbon containing silicon carbide to eliminate oxidation and erosion, will offer significant benefits in comparison to the refractory metals now in use such as rhenium, columbium, and molybdenum. Refractory and other m ...

  10. Weather Extension for a Commercial Geographic Information System

    SBC: PROLOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF03094

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop a new technology that provides 2D/3D/4D visualization of weather information within a commercial GIS (Geographic Information System) environment. GIS systems provide rich support for mapping, geographic data handling, spatial query, and geographic analysis functionality, but do not include native support for weather. GIS systems typically use static (atemp ...
