  1. Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: N10AT032

    OAE has proved to be an important measurement for hearing conservation programs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal with a miniature microphone. One impediment to OAE testing on a large scale, such as in military hearing conservation programs, is the lack of a high-quality, reliable ear-probes which house the miniature m ...

  2. Development of Electronic Controlled Fuel Injector and Pump Suitable for 5-20 Horsepower Diesel Cycle Engines

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: N10AT033

    Phase II will enable KBEI to demonstrate a complete high pressure Micro Injection System on a Navy UAV engine in a laboratory environment. While the Micro Injectors and Micro Pump have been successfully proven at lower pressures, this STTR program has facilitated research and development of a higher pressure injection system designed for use with heavy fuels. At the conclusion of the Phase II ST ...

  3. High Strength Stress Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Casting Alloys

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N102106

    The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is pursuing high-performance aluminum castings for structural components of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV). Aluminum alloy A206 has been considered for these applications; however, this alloy is susceptible to hot tearing during casting, and has inferior stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance. Under this proposed SBIR program, QuesTek Innovations ...

  7. Innovative improvements to High-Frequency Simulation Methods for Installed Antenna Performance

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N103197

    Delcross proposes to systematically validate the Savant and Savant-Hybrid solvers for a wide variety of problems. When shortcomings in existing methods are identified, they will be investigated and revised as necessary to provide good comparison with benchmark solutions. Our approach will first consider canonical problems involving PEC structures that are well understood. We will use Savant and a ...

  8. Radio Frequency (RF) System Performance and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N103202

    Modern military and commercial aircraft include numerous RF systems and associated antennas. The designed freestanding performance of antennas is typically degraded by their platform installation. Also, the cositing of many RF systems in a small region creates enormous opportunity for inter-system EMI via antenna coupling that can significantly harm receiver performance. As challenging as these pr ...

  9. Development of III-Nitride Based 280 nm Lasers

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N111029

    Unfortunately, existing AlGaN based ultraviolet laser diodes with wavelengths much shorter than 340 nm suffer from poor performance. This is partially due to the fact that most of the existing research has focused on growth of InGaN lasers on GaN based templates, but a large part is also due to material and processing issues unique to deep UV lasers. New approaches to achieving III-Nitride 280 nm ...

  10. Development of an Advanced Severe Service Valve Actuator

    SBC: Ingenium Technologies Corporation            Topic: N111043

    A development program is proposed to address failures experienced on Navy actuators exposed to severe vibration levels. A failure investigation and root cause analysis will be performed to help determine the best approach to improving the design. New design concepts will be built and actual vibration tests will be performed using a Curtiss Wright actuator assembly. Ingenium will leverage experienc ...
