  1. Techniques for Wire Recognition using mmW

    SBC: Goleta Star LLC            Topic: A152093

    High-voltage power lines present hazardous operating conditions for the helicopters especially when the pilot vision is degraded by obscurants such as dust, smoke, fog, rain, and snow. The power lines are subtle objects for the pilot in the cockpit to see, not to mention when visibility gets bad such as in the cases of operating at night and under poor weather conditions. Thus, power-line-strike a ...

  2. Improved Fuze Timing for Airburst Munitions

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: A152091

    Tanner Research will develop and demonstrate a proof-of-concept airburst fuzing sensor for use in gun-launched munitions. A gun-hardened piezo-based sensor, with no moving parts, will sense setback and balloting accelerations to accurately pinpoint the projectiles transition into free-space at the barrel exit. Using analysis of the acquired data and the known and consistent barrel length, it will ...

  3. Pulsed Voltammetry Tools for Advanced Analysis of Electrochemical Power Systems

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152092

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to develop, verify, validate and deliver an analysis tool enabling researchers to use pulse voltammetry methods for enhanced understanding and accelerated development of electrochemical systems. Pulse voltammetry techniques provide high detection sensitivity, discrimination against charging currents, and information sufficient for mechanism identification and extra ...

  4. Enhanced Analysis for Pulsed Voltammetry Evaluation Tool

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152093

    Pulsed voltammetry is a characterization tool for electrochemical systems that has been around for many decades. Unlike the more commonly used cyclic voltammetry techniques, the additional degrees of freedom intrinsic to pulsed voltammetry techniques permit the decoupling of reaction kinetics from diffusion, and allow for the precise measurement of a range of reaction parameters, including the hal ...

  5. CubeSat Constellations Enabling Distributed Aperture SAR and GPS Augmentation

    SBC: Zerad LLC            Topic: A152097

    The focus and priority of this topic is seeking innovative space-based remote sensor capabilities supporting all-weather, day-night imaging capability.Preliminary research assessments highlight the availability of next generation device/component technologies and outline novel approaches for creating flotillas, swarms, and/or formations of nano-satellites with multi-faceted functions and sensor ca ...

  6. Fully Integrated Aeroelastic Simulation of Complete Vertical Lift Configurations

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A15103

    Current approaches for resolving rotorcraft fuselage responses in the presence of aerodynamic/structural excitation require ample conservatism because current CFD-based aeromechanic solutions lack the capability to include detailed elastic fuselage models. Instead, a siloed approach is employed where results of one analysis are replayed into another. A particular limitation of the siloed method is ...

  7. RCAS Elastic Fuselage Coupling with CFD


    Helicopter buffeting is an aeroelastic problem, with mutually interacting airloads and structural motions from the rotor, hub, fuselage, and empennage. Buffeting is amenable to the state-of-the-art analysis technology and addressing it is long overdue. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) provides the highest fidelity for the fluid physics while Computational Structural Dynamics (CSD) provides accur ...

  8. Innovative Matrix Systems for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Tactical Rocket Motor Applications


    The current matrix materials used for composite tactical rocket motor applications are based on legacy systems with proven performance derived from strategic and space-launch applications. The latency of these resin systems and corresponding long cure cycles are adequate for wet filament winding large structures and low rate production. However, transitioning these matrix materials to the producti ...

  9. Multi-static Ground Penetrating Radar for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A15109

    AKELA is proposing to use our existing MIMO FLGPR platform as a baseline to analyze and model a forward looking transmitter that is used to provide illumination for a downward looking repeater antenna that is installed on a small UAV and carried down range. Limited experiments will be performed to provide data for model refinement and to predict anticipated system performance. A preliminary design ...

  10. Multi-static Ground Penetrating Radar for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A15109

    We present a concept for improving standoff ground penetrating radar capabilities for detecting buried explosive hazards (BEH). Currently, standoff detection capabilities are limited to forward looking systems, which provide limited penetration of the ground surface due to the low grazing angle required for forward looking standoff detection. Additionally, forward looking arrays are somewhat limit ...
