  1. 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 ...

  2. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    This project describes research that will lead to the commercialization of the Tool Dashboard, a new technique for pre-process milling parameter selection. In this approach, dynamic models of the cutting tool and holder will be analytically coupled to spindle-machine measurements to predict the tool point dynamics. Given this information, stability lobe diagrams, which display stable and unstable ...

  3. Dynamic Error Measurement for Large Machine Tools

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    Existing machine tool metrology methods measure the quasistatic errors of a machine tool and, thus, evaluate its static positioning accuracy. Yet machine tools are dynamic, they do not stop and pause in an effort to reach a programmed position. Additionally, current techniques do not identify all of the errors, many of which significantly impact the volumetric accuracy of the machine. Almost immed ...

  4. Inexpensive, Portable Sensors for Chemical-Biological Agent Detection

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: SB093013

    In modern battlespace, deployment of chemical and biological agents by our adversaries is a threat that needs to be addressed. These agents are cheap to manufacture and easily available. Their effects can be devastating to our troops. Detecting chemical and biological agents often require bulky equipment in a laboratory. Identifying the agents could take many minutes in such facilities. A more eff ...

  5. UV/Vis Low-Dispersion Confocal Objective

    SBC: H NU PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB102001

    A detailed design is proposed to compare one and two mirror, parabolic and aspheric optics to achieve high numerical aperture, high-throughput, sub-micron resolution from 200 to 800 nanometers. An optimization phase will follow for the concept(s) that best satisfy the requirements. Predicted performance will be analyzed for the selected concepts including evaluation of point spread function, mod ...

  6. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Concentris Systems LLC            Topic: SB082055

    This three-phase SBIR project will develop an actively managed circadian rhythm berth-light fixture that meets the stringent requirements of the Navy for shipboard replacement of conventional fluorescent fixtures. The fixture will combine high-efficiency solid-state lighting (SSL) and an intuitive user interface that guides the user in the timed application of blue light to self-manage sleep cycle ...

  7. GPU-Based CFD Analysis for Modeling Complex UAV Flight Scenarios

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Recent advances in computing have produced special-purpose hardware comprised of vector processors streamlined for high-performance computations. Development of these devices, such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell Processor), has been advanced by the videogame industry. In an effort to increase flexibility and enter new markets, vendors have increased platf ...

  8. Graph-Matching Accelerator (GMA)

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB082024

    We propose to explore the applicability of COTS general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) to approximate graph matching problems, in order to dramatically improve the speed and utility of DoD-relevant processing areas such as machine vision, target recognition and social network analysis.

  9. Autonomous Detection, Acquisition, Pointing, and Tracking of Small UAVs

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SB082002

    The use of UAVs has rapidly increased in the last several years. Commercially available technology has provided a means for exposing military and civilian personnel to advanced threats. The radar cross-sections of these platforms has also been drastically reduced through the use of composites. Oceanit proposes an electro-optical system to identify, track, small UAVs under 1-meter wingspan with ...

  10. Noise-Tolerant Medical Record Voice Recorder

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB082015

    Creare proposes to design, develop, and deliver a Noise-Tolerant Medical Record Voice Recorder. Currently, medical personnel attending to injured soldiers at the point of injury do not have a consistent and accurate method to transfer vital medical information to final point of care medical personnel. To bridge this capability gap, what is needed is a digital voice recorder that is approximately ...
