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

    SBC: Sentient Science 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. Metal-Tolerant MicroTracking Device for 3D Localization in Robotic Medical Procedures


    A critical constraint in computer-assisted robotic procedures is limited 3D visualization. Besides presenting health risks, X-ray and fluoroscopy permit 2D vision only and cannot always meet precise localization requirements. A real-time 3D tracking device is needed to solve key localization issues in robotic and image-guided procedures. A DC magnetic tracking device with miniaturized sensors, tol ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Through Screen Optical Head Tracker


    A critical military requirement exists for a fast, cost-effective, six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) technology that can track a pilot's helmet though rear-projection screens and is immune to distortion and interference from scatterers of magnetic/electrical energy. Building upon Phase I research that demonstrated feasibility of projecting light energy through graphics projection screens, Ascension T ...

  5. Fluorescent Coated Filters for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Microorganisms in Water


    Reliable and sensitive detection of biowarfare agents (BWAs) such as Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, ricin, botulinum toxin, etc. is an important challenge for both military operations and domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We are proposing to develop a biomimetic polymer coating, containing receptors for BWA targets, that becomes fluorescent when exposed to samples con ...

  6. Power Harvesting for Shipboard Health Monitoring Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N02124

    This Phase II Navy SBIR proposal is aimed at the development of a new class of wireless sensing devices. These sensors do not require batteries or external magnetic fields in order to send data, instead, they rely on harvesting vibrational energy in order to sense information and to wirelessly transmit that information to a central host. MicroStain, Inc. produces a range of wireless sensing in ...

  7. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB031016

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells. The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...

  8. High-Efficiency Amplifiers with Discretely Variable Output Power

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: AF02201

    Space-based radar (SBR) requires multiple RF power amplifiers (PAs) to drive phased-arrays antennas. Control of the beam direction requires an amplitude range of 22 dB, and coupling between elements results in load impedances with significant mismatch. Both factors make conventional linear RF PAs very inefficient. The proposed approach employs a high-efficiency RF PA, class-S modulator, and e ...

  9. Light-Weight, High-efficient, Wideband Compact Power Amplifier

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: A02124

    The military makes extensive use of high-power signals at frequencies from 1.5 MHz to 3 GHz for communication, jamming, and other applications. The proposed ultra-wideband high-efficiency power amplifier is based upon a combination of a high-efficiency RF power amplifier (PA) and electronic tuning. The high-efficiency PA provides maximum power output and minimum power consumption, thus allowing ...

  10. Photonic Band Gap Devices for Commercial Applications

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF02T017

    Advances in fabrication technology have made it possible to prodce features that are smaller than the wavelength of light. As such a new class of optical devices based on submicron periodic structures has emerged and is referred to as photonic crystals (PhC) or photonic band gap devices (PBGs). Preliminary research indicates that these devices will be capable of performing a wide variety of functi ...
