  1. Ultra-High Temperature Thermoelectrics

    SBC: EM-TECH, INC.            Topic: N151068

    Hypersonic vehicles need compact, high temperature capable power sources since batteries are not sufficiently compact and require insulation. A thermoelectric (TE) energy-harvesting system converts thermal energy into electricity by taking advantage of the temperature difference between two surfaces. The objective of this effort is to increase the temperature limits of current TE materials from ap ...

  2. Topside Optical Processing for Global Unmanned Navy (TOPGUN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12HS3

    Subsequent Phase II Proposal, extension of Phase I contract N00014-13-P-1152.Under the ACTUV program, DARPA developed a strategically critical autonomous anti-submarine warfare vessel, called Sea Hunter. One key to Sea Hunter’s success is an ability to avoid collisions with manned vessels by following the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS). However, autonomous C ...

  3. NDI System for Quantification of Subsurface Residual Stress in the Laboratory

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N152091

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a non-destructive method for subsurface residual stress measurement in turbo-machinery components. Neutron diffraction techniques have a proven ability to determine residual stresses at significant depths, however implementation of these techniques has been limited to specialized facilities such as the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) neutron at Oak ...

  4. Model-Based Tool for the Automatic Validation of Rotorcraft Regime Recognition Algorithms

    SBC: Spire Innovations, LLC            Topic: N152094

    Accurate and reliable Regime Recognition (RR) algorithms are a key enabling technology for a Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) program, which tailors the service profile to individual vehicles based on actual aircraft usage. In general, production RR algorithms with the required accuracy to provide such usage information do not exists yet, in part because of the expense and human involvement curre ...

  5. Model-Based Tool for the Automatic Validation of Rotorcraft Regime Recognition Algorithms

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N152094

    TDA is proposing to develop a model based technique to automate the verification and validation process of helicopter regime recognition codes in three major steps. In the first step, a list of standardized flight regimes will be developed as this is a pre-requisite for automated verification and validation process, and these may become the recommended standard in the helicopter and HUMS community ...

  6. Novel Multi-scale/Multi-physics Integrated Tool for the Prediction of Manufacturing-Induced Defects in Autoclave Composite Airframe Parts

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N15AT003

    Composite materials have emerged as the materials of choice for increasing the performance and reducing the weight and cost of military aircraft. Nevertheless, manufacture of composite parts still poses numerous difficulties which can result in premature curing, degradation in thin cross-sections, incomplete curing in thick counterparts or build-up of internal stresses. Experimental investigations ...

  7. Prognostic Monitoring and Condition Reporting for Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) Subsystems

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: N151056

    As unmanned vehicles (UxVs) become an increasingly integral part of the US Navy, prevention and mitigation of system failures are becoming increasingly critical challenges. Accordingly, during operations, UxVs should be capable of self-monitoring system health, predicting impending faults, and, where possible, notifying remote human operators of fault states. At the same time, operators should hav ...

  8. Processes for Condition Monitoring and Prognostics at the Sensor Node

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N151027

    Condition-based maintenance (CBM) has the potential to significantly reduce operating costs through improved equipment management and more informed scheduling of maintenance activities. Sensing hardware can monitor equipment health, apply diagnostic algorithms to evaluate an asset’s current state, and make projections for how the system will perform if damage is detected and tracked. For maintai ...
