  1. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  2. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    This proposal will supply to NAVAIR and to rotorcraft manufacturing companies the emerging solution to their fabrication needs as it relates to the production of Rotor Blade Spars. The process and machine concept developed in Phase I will provide NAVAIR and the rotocraft manufacturing companies an automated solution to spar manufacturing. This will enable: • Low part manufacturing cost • High ...

  3. High-Speed Thermal Imaging of In-Service TBC Blades

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF073057

    Ceramic thermal barrier coating (TBC) on first-stage turbine blades is a vital component of advanced engines under development for future military aircraft, protecting the metal alloy blades from the extreme combustion temperature in these high-performance engines. TBC must be proven as a reliable means to prevent blade failure but current engine development programs are hindered since there is no ...

  4. Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis Capability for Gas Turbine Component Design

    SBC: AERODYNAMIC SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF073054

    Turbine performance increases through increasing turbine inlet gas temperature which can result in reduced turbine durability. Currently the design practices employed by the major OEM’s for cooled turbine airfoils are generally very empirical in nature and can easily miss important physical behavior thereby compromising airfoil durability. This in turn leads to turbine airfoil durability issues ...

  5. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  6. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  7. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  8. Reduced Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Motions For Reliable Recovery

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07205

    Safe and reliable launch and recovery of small offboard assets is important to the concept of operations for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), as they are deployed to complete a wide range of missions. The LCS design specification requires launch and recovery of watercraft to be completed within fifteen minutes in conditions through Sea State 4. These operations are expected to be difficult becaus ...

  9. Uncertainty Estimation for Atmospheric Acoustic Propagation Prediction

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N08096

    The propagation of acoustic signatures from vehicles, aircraft, boats and artillery can have a significant impact on military operations. Specifically combatants need to reliably detect enemy acoustic signatures while at the same time concealing their own. The physical propagation environment, including surface and atmospheric parameters, may drastically alter the range at which an emitting object ...

  10. High Fidelity Clutter Model for Active Sonar

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N08056

    Active sonar clutter usually appears on a display as an amalgamation of point scatterers that exhibit both object and individual reflective and kinematic behavior. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a realistic active sonar clutter model based on a few generalized concepts to synthesize most clutter types observed on Mid-Frequency active sonars. Realism is achieved by using ...
