  1. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    During the program baseline, LCI will develop an eyesafe, large array RT3D camera system that generates both 3D and 2D grayscale imagery in real-time that can be mounted on the iRobot PackBot. The 3D and 2D grayscale imagery can be fused in software to display both range and albedo information for each pixel in the 3D image, a display that will provide better scene understanding. During the option ...

  2. A Cartesian Mesh Method For Turbulent Flow Simulation

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: N08T008

    This STTR Phase I project proposes to develop a Cartesian mesh solver for high Reynolds number turbulent flow simulations. Due to its ease of grid generation, simplicity of flow solver, lower computational storage requirement, significantly less operational count per cell, and also due to rapid growth of computer power, the Cartesian mesh approach gets revitalized recently with grid adaptation. Th ...

  6. A Process to In-Situ Form Cooling Channels in SiC/SiC Composite Turbine Blades and Nozzles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07012

    Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) such as SiC/SiC offer higher temperature capabilities than metals with cooling channels in turboshaft engines. Even higher operating temperatures are possible if cooling channels can be produced in SiC/SiC composites as well as silicon free environmental barrier coatings (EBC). The Phase I program demonstrated that cooling channels can be in-situ formed in the fa ...

  7. A System Approach using CartEuler-based Nonlinear Aeroelasticity for FP/LCO Analysis and Design of Control Surfaces

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF081086

    The ZONA Team proposes to develop a nonlinear aeroelastic/aeroservoelastic methodology for free-play (FP)/LCO analysis and prediction for aircraft control surfaces at various trim conditions and subjected to gust/pilot commend excitations. In phase I, a CartEuler-based FP/LCO methodology (CEFM) will be established with a ZONA-developed Cartesian Euler solver fully integrated with a ZONA nonlinear ...

  8. A Two Stage Data Fusion Strategy for False Alarm Mitigation in Propulsion Health Management (PHM) Systems

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: AF081054

    Scientific Monitoring, Inc. (SMI) proposes a novel two-stage comprehensive strategy for fault diagnosis for the purpose of reducing the occurrence of No Fault Found (NFF) events in Propulsion Health Management (PHM) activities. The strategy includes modeling and algorithmic elements that account for uncertainty at two distinct stages in the fault detection process: (a) anomaly detection, and (b) ...

  10. Advanced Carbon Nanotubes- Based Polymer Matrix Composites for Satellites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF063009

    The Phase I results have proven the feasibility of creating breakthrough polymer matrix composites (PMC) with high-loadings of well dispersed nanotubes in engineering polymer matrixes. The exceptional mechanical properties of the developed PMCs will be further improved in the Phase II effort by increasing the nanotube loading in the PMC to the packing limit, through optimizing the interface of the ...
