  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 ...

  5. Design and Optimization of Radar Systems to Assist Rotorcraft Piloting in Adverse Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08141

    Rotorcraft are increasingly turning toward high-resolution Ka- through W-band radar sensors that can image terrain and obstructions but also see through the particulates that confound infrared and optical sensors, such as sand, ocean spray, and fog. As with any onboard sensor, designers must consider the antenna/platform interaction, and mature tools exist to address this type of problem. However ...

  6. Improved Analysis Techniques for Prediction of Avionics Electromagnetic Interference and Vulnerability

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08132

    Physics-based modeling and simulation tools for predicting electromagnetic interference (EMI) and vulnerability (EMV) between RF systems are playing an increasingly important role in system level performance predictions. In order to accurately capture all of the complexity associated with RF systems on a modern military platform, very sophisticated multi-physics simulators using models of multiple ...

  7. Weapon System Performance in Complex Radio Frequency (RF) Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08121

    Many highly accurate electromagnetic solvers have been developed based on a variety of full-wave and asymptotic algorithms. The tools provide cost effective insight into electromagnetic phenomena and allow analysts to perform trade studies while reducing expensive measurements. By itself, a well-developed EM analysis tool is not sufficient to produce accurate results; accurate results require an a ...

  10. RF Sensor Performance in Electrically Large, Complex Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N07023

    Modern aircraft include numerous RF systems and associated antennas of diverse types. The designed performance of antennas is typically degraded by their installation on the airframe. Also, the presence of many RF systems in a small region creates enormous opportunity for undesired interference via antenna-to-antenna coupling. These conditions present serious challenges for engineers tasked with i ...
