  1. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  2. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  3. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  4. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  5. Jam Resistant GPS Reception

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    A unique approach is proposed for the effective rejection of cochannel, but otherwise arbitrary, jamming and other interference in GPS reception. The approach is based on a method of processing a multiplicity of signals sharing the same time-frequency and polarization space, in such a way as to favor a bona fide GPS signal over the others present (jamming, spoofing, multipath, atmospherics or oth ...

  6. Upgrading of PIC Codes for HPM Tube Design

    SBC: A.J. Devaney Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is to develop an understanding from first principles of the macroscopic particle force equation arising from the microscopic particle and field interaction dynamics and to incorporate those effects in a self-consistent state-space (rate equation) PIC calculation. Effective current and charge density time-domain equation models will ...

  7. Modeling of Meteoric Influx and Studies of Atmospheric Ramifications

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Radex, Inc. proposes to develop a comprehensive model of the influx of meteors and cosmic dust to the Earth's atmosphere which will be sufficiently general for use in visual and radar observations as well as for driving models of the ionospheric and neutral metal layers. The model will draw upon meteor observation data which will be analysed and consolidated into software for prediction of the to ...

  8. An Infrared Polarimetric Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor for Low False Alarm Rate Target Detection

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  9. DISTRIBUTED APERTURE E-O SYSTEM FOR TRACKING AND DESIGNATION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A small number of conformal E-O sensors distributed over the surface of an aircraft can provide field of view coverage for Missile Warning, IRST and FLIR viewing. An innovative technique (Spatial Modulation) is used to allow a low density IR focal plane array to provide the necessary high resolution over a wide field of view. The Spatial Modulation sensor has an intermediate focal plane that is ...

  10. Affordability-driven, Microwave Curing for Reversible Bonding of Composites

    SBC: AEROTECH ENGINEERING & RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Fastening and joining technology has lagged behind the progress that has been made in other areas of composites for advanced air vehicles. Aerotech proposes the development of reversible polymeric adhesive bonding of composites using variable frequency microwave energy. With this method, composites are bonded using Poly Ether Ether Ketone (a high temperature thermoplastic) which is cured using v ...
