  1. 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 ...

  3. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is the most widely used welding process. It is also the major process used in shipbuilding. In traditional GMAW and all its modifications, the current which melts the wire is the same as the current which heats the base metal. The base metal heat input is thus proportional to the heat which melts the wire. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity as measured by ...

  4. 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, ...

  5. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
