  2. Multi-Function Fluid Measurement System using High-Definition Fiber Optic Sensing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T13

    Propulsion systems require rigorous and highly instrumented testing to enable a comprehensive analysis of performance and to minimize risks associated with space flight. Current testing instrumentation methods can be replaced with embedded sensor systems that are used for monitoring remote, hazardous, or inaccessible locations, while reducing cabling and power consumption. The additional informati ...

  3. Demonstration of a Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System Using Asset-Based Change Detection

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. To help address these issues, machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago; however, the technology has not achieved its expected potential due to the uncontrolled nature of rail environments. Recent findings have s ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL TRANSMISSION FOR HELICOPTER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: A16018

    US Army utilizes a wide range of vehicles across ground and air platforms where mechanical transmissions are used to transmit power from the engine to the drive shaft. Gears are used to create a torque and speed conversion with mechanical contact between the gear teeth surfaces. Lubrication is necessary to create a protective film between rolling and sliding surfaces as well as provide sufficient ...

  8. Signal Processing at Radio Frequency (RF) for Position Navigation & Timing Co-Site Interference

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: A17039

    Numerous operations in an increasingly congested electromagnetic spectrum, intensify demand for data at the tactical edge, and the diminishing extent of electromagnetic spectrum provisioned for the military has resulted in the need for advanced technologies to mitigate Global Positioning System (GPS) interference due to co-site interference and C4ISR. Metamagnetics proposes a powerful and adaptabl ...

  9. CMOS Compatible Deposition of Multi-Ferroic Films for Tunable Microwave Applications

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17019

    Built upon the progress in Phase I period, Winchester Technologies, LLC proposes to investigate practical magnetoelectric antennas during the Phase II period for different applications. State of the art antennas suffer from three major open challenges: (1) large antenna size, (2) antenna impedance mismatch; (3) ground plane effect. This is because state of the art antennas are based on oscillating ...

  10. Vascularized Tissue Construction Using Specialized 3D Bioprinting Techniques

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A17068

    Tissue engineering technology is of particular import to the Army for the matter of producing tissue replacements for the repair and regeneration of various organ systems (liver, heart, muscle, lung, etc.) for wounded patients. Unfortunately, the production of masses of tissue with thicknesses greater than ~1 mm presents a challenge due to diffusion limits of nutrients into the tissue and waste ou ...
