  1. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars with Option

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    Sponsored by NAVAIR, Accudyne Systems completed a Phase 1 SBIR program, developing an equipment and process concept for cost-effective fabrication of composite rotary wing main rotor blade spars. The CH-53K spar was the study focus. The recommended work cell concept combines automated tape placement, woven fabric placement, and pick and place of 45° parallelograms to layup plies, then debulk and ...

  2. Improved Performance, More Producible Long Wave IR Integrated Dewar Assemblies

    SBC: WILLIAM P. KUHN, PH.D., LLC            Topic: MDA08019

    A versatile and portable instrument for stray light detection and diagnosis at both visible and infrared wavelengths will be designed, built, and demonstrated. The core idea of the proposed approach is to use subaperture, rather than full aperture, illumination for stray light detection. The subaperture approach uses a scanning pencil beam (SPB) that provides information about the location of a s ...

  3. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  4. Nano-Passivation of GaSb/InAs Strained Layer Superlattices Infrared Detector

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08103

    Long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition, since human body radiation peaks in LWIR. Despite the enhanced wavelength coverage, the GaSb/InAs type-II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector still exhibits relatively high surface leakage current and its associated noises. With an industrially proven nano-material, we propose ...

  5. An Efficient CFD Algorithm for Store Separation Prediction

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: N08118

    This Small Business Innovation Research project proposes to develop a hybrid Cartesian grid/gridless solver for fast prediction of store separation. In this approach, a Cartesian grid is used to cover the majority of the computational domain except near the body surfaces to take advantages of ease of grid generation and computational efficiency of the Cartesian grid approach. Near the body surface ...

  6. SDR Tool Suite

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: A08108

    The DataSoft Software Defined Radio (SDR) Tool Suite (STS) provides a new and enhanced capability to the SDR developers via two independent tools: the STS-WF Analysis Tool and the STS-Probe Toolbox. The STS-WF Analysis Tool can reduce cost and schedule by assessing new waveform (WF) and platform (PF) compatibilities along with guidelines from standard portability and compliance documents early in ...

  7. Next-Generation Mobile Software Defined Radio

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: N08087

    The U.S. military’s next-generation radio system, JTRS, is based on Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and will create new opportunities, methods, and applications for generating and sharing tactical data. One of the many challenges in realizing the JTRS vision is to create small, lightweight, embeddable devices that operate from battery power, meet the requirements for performance, SCA com ...

  9. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  10. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration- CPP

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    The ultimate goal of this Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) effort is to design, build, and integrate flight-ready custom electronics for a 220-channel MMW distributed-aperture imager. This work bases on a previous SBIR project, in which we constructed a single-channel prototype of the phase control electronics in a laboratory (breadboard) environment. To enable control of a 220-channel system ...
