  1. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT004

    A combined discrete cohesive interface fracture and continuum damage mechanics initiation and propagation toolkit for Abaqus will be developed for the residual strength prediction of adhesively bonded composite structures subjected to multi-axial loading. This tool will allow us, for the first time, to be able to simulate concurrently both the continuum and discrete damage progression at the bonde ...

  2. Total Fatigue Life Assessment of Complicated Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT006

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team members Northwestern University, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing Company, propose to develop an automatic software tool for 2D/3D fatigue crack growth prognosis of complicated structures under multi-axial loading. The XFAT toolkit will be developed by integrating a unified crack initiation and propagation model with an enhanced mesh inde ...

  3. Hybrid State-Detection System for Gearbox Components

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N12AT007

    Aerospace structures are subject to dynamic loading. In particular, gearbox components experience continuous cyclic loading, wear and eventually develop fatigue cracks. As opposed to most other aircraft components, gearbox components are non-redundant, so a failure can have catastrophic consequences. Gearbox members are typically magnesium, aluminum or high-strength steel that exhibit high fractur ...

  4. Expendable Acoustic Source for AUV Based Geoacoustic and Geotechnical Survey Operations

    SBC: MASSA PRODUCTS CORPORATION            Topic: N12AT017

    There is a need to develop an Expendable Acoustic Source for AUV based geoacoustic and geotechnical survey operations that can be used to help determine the bottom sediment acoustic properties, which will help in planning the operation of low and mid-frequency ASU sonars in shallow water. In addition, the inversion of the acoustic information for geotechnical properties will support classification ...

  5. Innovative Dive Helmet for Hearing Conservation (1001-860)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N12AT020

    Helmeted divers are exposed to high levels of noise. The sources of these noises can be self-generated (e.g. airflow through the demand-regulators during inhalation and bubble noise during exhalation), as well as transmitted through the helmet from underwater tools. While administrative controls (i.e. noise exposure guidance and regulations) are a necessary part of an overall hearing protection st ...

  6. Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N12AT021

    Agiltron, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will build and test the Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS), a stereoscopic vision system to provide 3-D location and mapping capability for the navigation of firefighting robotic systems. IRIS is based on Agiltron"s uncooled photomechanical thermal imaging technology that employs the long wavelength infrared (LWIR) and terahe ...

  7. Compressive Sensing for DCGS-N

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N12AT026

    Compressive sensing (CS) is a relatively new form of data sampling that shows promise to greatly reduce the amount of information required to acquire and reconstruct information from sources such as synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery, electro-optical (EO) imagery, and RF data. CS has interesting practical applications in processing/exploitation of imagery, signals, and other structured data. S ...

  8. Information Salience

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: OSD11TD1

    An intelligence analyst"s job is to monitor a stream of incoming reports and sensor data for information relevant to a situation, detect the salient information, answer the commander"s priority intelligence requirements (PIRs) and distill the salient information into a concise estimate of what is currently going on, what is most likely to happen, and what is the most dangerous course of events tha ...

  9. Higher Automated Learning (HAL)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR1

    The preparation of training materials is a labor-intensive process. It typically starts with manual task analysis or knowledge elicitation sessions requiring significant time commitments from both training professionals and SMEs. Those products must then be manually transformed into the building blocks for training content development and learning assessment. Clearly it would be of great benefit t ...

  10. Cloud Infrastructure for Retrieving and Refining Information from Sensors (CIRRIS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11DR6

    A wealth of sensor data is available to address the information needs of tactical Warfighters. However, this data resides in diverse, large, remote data stores. Delivering actionable information to the Warfighter requires discovering the relevant sources, retrieving relevant information, integrating the data so that it can be fused, and performing level one fusion. Since the preoccupied Warfighter ...
