  1. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...

  4. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  5. DIPAIN-Based Handheld Assay for the Detection of T-2 Toxin in Water Using a Handheld Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10AT021

    A rapid assay for the detection of T2 trichothecene mycotoxin in water is proposed that will use ANP Technology, Inc.'s established handheld reader and rapid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor test ticket format. Dipain-II and other candidate Dipain derivatives will be immobilized on cellulose and other solid supports mounted as discs in wells on the existing test ticket, similar to the AChE i ...

  6. Characterization Of Noise And Detectivity Of Nano-BiCMOS Photo-Detectors

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A09089

    Low light level visible and infrared imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition. Our newly developed low-light-level nano-BiCMOS silicon photo-detector has been experimentally proven to consistently deliver in-pixel high-gain amplification to boost external quantum efficiency and photo current signal without increased dark current. The same class of detector ...

  8. Light Field Imaging for Dense Sprays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT027

    The performance of modern combustion systems used in propulsion devices (e.g., gas turbine main combustors, augmentors, rockets, etc.) is largely dependent on the mixing of fuel and oxidizer (e.g., compressor air, vitiated air, and oxygen). This mixing process, usually involving a liquid jet emanating into a gaseous flow followed by subsequent breakup and atomization, is critically important to ma ...

  9. Wireless, Wide Frequency Band Otoactoustic Emissions Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT032

    The nature and requirements of military operations lead to high noise levels, exposing military and civilian personnel to the possibility of noise-induced hearing loss. Otoacoustic emission (OAE) probes can assess the health of the inner ear by testing the response of the cochlea to various types of stimuli. The measurement of emissions at high frequency has the potential to detect noise-induced d ...

  10. A Magnetostrictive Energy Harvester for Shipboard Mechanical Vibration Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT020

    There are many efforts underway to develop distributed shipboard health monitoring sensors. These devices face strong opposition by fleet maintainers unless the requirements for power supply cabling and/or battery maintenance are eliminated. Consequently, methods for harvesting energy from local environmental conditions using heat, solar, and vibration are of great interest. As opposed to piezoele ...
