  1. Active Damage Detection & Visualization for Naval Assets

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N10AT042

    This proposal presents an optimized approach for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of naval assets. This research leverages hardware previously developed by Metis Design Corporation (MDC), including distributed digitization hardware, piezoelectric-based damage-localization sensors, and a data accumulation hub. Collaborating with UCSD, there were three main thrusts for the Phase I research: sensor ...

  4. High Resolution Measurement of the Flow Velocity Field in a Supersonic Jet Plume

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N11AT004

    Modern supersonic jet aircraft engines produce a high amplitude noise field with complicated characteristics due to turbulent behaviors of the hot jet. Researchers need better understanding of the turbulent structures in the jet plume to develop treatments to engines that might reduce the noise emissions. A significant obstacle to making these simulations practical and realistic for engine design ...

  5. Micro-Plasma Turbulence Velocimetry (uPTV)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: N11AT004

    Non-invasive methods are required to measure the turbulence in supersonic jet plumes in 3-D with high temporal and spatial resolutions. The turbulent supersonic jet plume changes rapidly both in space and time, and hence any viable approach must acquire the entire 3-D velocity field at even faster speed for comparison with the temporal and spatial velocity field solved in Large Eddy Simulations. ...

  8. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N11AT009

    Electric motors and generators have a long history of development, from the first halting steps to the intensive development in the 20th and 21st century. Consequently, motors and generators have become mature technologies that only see incremental improvements in performance. To achieve more than just incremental improvements in such parameters as power density and efficiency, a radical departure ...

  9. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...
