  1. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  4. A Discrete-Element Method for Reactive Particle Transport and Adhesion in a Gas Turbine Engine

    SBC: New England Research & Development, LLC            Topic: N171034

    There are numerous conditions where gas turbine engines ingest small particulates. Of particular concern are the particles (~1-10 micrometer) that are ejected into the atmosphere as volcanic ash. Ingestion of these particles has numerous detrimental effects. Particle collisions cause abrasion of compressor blades, leading to loss of efficiency. Ingested particles that partially or completely melt ...

  5. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  7. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: DLA152001

    In response to DLA SBIR Topic DLA152-001 for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, Sentient Corporation (Sentient) proposes to develop a life cycle cost optimization tool based on our commercial DigitalClone modeling technology. This tool will enable users to evaluate the tradeoffs between alternate manufacturing processes, implementation costs, and the performance/durability of the resultant comp ...

  10. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...
