  2. Auxetic Fabric Technology Development for Military Protective Clothing

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N12AT012

    The United States Navy has identified the need to investigate the use of auxetic fabric for military personnel protective clothing including jackets, shirts, pants, helmets, boots, gloves, and even body armor. Auxetic fabric technology has a unique feature in that it exhibits a negative Poisson"s ratio effect when subjected to an axial load. Auxetic fabric consists of an elastomeric core yarn, whi ...

  4. Developing and validating a model to understand mixed lubrication regions for fluid-film bearings

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N12AT010

    Under this effort, Sentient will develop mixed-EHL models to predict the performance of fluid film bearings for submarine applications. The models will consider critical design and operational parameters such as component geometry and surface finish, start up and shut down speeds/loads, and lubrication properties to predict torque, film thickness, and associated wear/efficiency. The result will be ...

  5. Development of a Concept for Swarmed mini-UAVs for Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: Augusta Systems, Inc.            Topic: N04T005

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have served to enhance and augment the surveillance and reconnaissance abilities of the military of the United States of America. In developing the next generation of UAVs, the application of novel methodologies to UAV control will become more important as the number and mission criticality of deployed UAVs continues to increase. One of these novel approaches, lon ...

  9. Development of Spray Coating Methods and Materials to Replace Aluminum Cladding of Aging Aircraft for Corrosion Protection

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: AF06T023

    The proposed work will be directed towards developing aluminum-based crystalline and glassy/amorphous coating using thermal spray techniques (plasma and cold spray) for the corrosion protection of high-strength aluminum alloys (2024 and 7075). The coating material should be anodic to the base material for protection against galvanic corrosion. Glassy metal coatings generally exhibit superior corro ...

  10. Innovative Processing Techniques for Additive Manufacture of 7000 Series Aluminum Alloy Components

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N18AT005

    To address the needs of Navy to successfully produce 7000 series aluminum alloy components, Sentient proposes to develop a hybrid additive manufacturing (AM) process for this topic. Hybrid AM use a secondary process (e.g. peening, burnishing) along with primary AM process to tightly control thermal profile and stress evolution locally and globally, resulting enhanced part quality (e.g. negligible ...
