  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 ...

  4. Multiple Beam Antennas with Semi-Constrained Beamformers

    SBC: AJK TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    A mobile satellite communications link operating from vehicles on-the-move would provide significant benefits to the Marine Corps in the battlefield environment. The antenna should be capable of simultaneous and rapid tracking of two satellites while the vehicle is in motion over rough terrain, as well as providing ultra-wide bandwidth (C-band through Ku-band), medium to high gain, low profile, ru ...

  5. Novel Method for Strengthening Sapphire at Elevated Temperatures

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a novel process to increase the strength of sapphire at elevated temperatures. The resulting strength increase will alleviate the adverse effects of frictional heating of sapphire windows. Frictional heating can initiate a c-axis strength loss, leading to premature failure. The Aspen process will uniformly implant silicon atoms through the entire window, as ...

  8. Biofouling Monitor

    SBC: BRIDGER SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bridger Scientific, Inc. proposed to develop an inexpensive, real time monitor which utilizes proven surface, g techniques to measure both microbial and abiotic fouling on surfaces exposed to coolant seawater. The monitor will be designed as a small insertion probe, capable of being water pipelines. Real time data generated by the ...

  9. Improved Mid-Frequency Statistical Energy Analysis Modeling Procedures


    Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA)is currently used to predict high-frequency airborne and structureborne noise and vibration for ships, aircraft, aerospace systems, and automobiles, while finite element analysis (FEA) is used for low-frequencies. A mid-frequency region exists where neither technique gives accurate predictions. The study being proposed will develop modeling procedures that a ...

  10. Underwater Acoustic Channel and Network Optimization

    SBC: Delphi Communication Systems            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of this work are (1) to develop methods for acoustic channel prediction from nominal oceanographic data, and (2) to optimally design underwater acoustic networks to maximize the network surveillance performance, while minimizing its power consimption. The example network consists of a master node and a multitude of possibly mobile sensor nodes whose task is to report the information ...
