  1. Carbon Nanotubes as Transparent Heater Film

    SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N182103

    One of the main interests and urgent need for the US Navy is to develop an embedded carbon nanotube (CNT) transparent heater film to be used for de-icing and defogging aircraft windshields. To mitigate the burnout of the conductive heater layer as the leading cause of aircraft windscreen failures, INTER Materials proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative technology that promises to ...

  2. Transparent Carbon Nanotube Resistive Heater System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N182103

    Navy aircraft possess highly sophisticated windshields and window materials that enable superior performance and visibility for pilots and mission operators. Windshields on the V-22 tiltrotor aircraft have recently been found to be susceptible to failure due to burnout of the embedded conductive heater layer. The transparent metallic heater layer is designed to enable deicing via electric/resistiv ...

  3. Analysis of Dislocation Density, Recrystallization, and Residual Stress in 5XXX Aluminum using Laser Peening to mitigate Exfoliation Corrosion

    SBC: HEPBURN AND SONS LLC            Topic: N18AT016

    Hepburn and Sons LLC teaming with The Ohio State University, Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) propose to research and develop an innovative application of laser peening technology to mitigate exfoliation corrosion, a special type of inter-granular corrosion that occurs on the elongated grain boundaries. Strongly related, these Mg based alloys, when exposed to tensile stresses, c ...

  4. Laser Surface Melt Treatment and Galvanic Protection of 5XXX

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N18AT016

    Exfoliation corrosion of 5XXX series aluminum alloy is an issue related to the sensitization of the aluminum substrate typically occurring at end-grains. The Navy is interested in preventing this corrosion to decrease lifetime costs on Littoral Combat Ships, Ship-to-Shore Connector vessels, and Ticonderoga class ships. Luna will investigate surface modification using laser surface melt processing ...

  5. Lattice Structure Optimization for Metallic and Composite Additive-Manufactured Missile Components

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N181094

    With the advent of additive manufacturing (AM), lattice structures are being deployed today in a variety of engineering applications where light-weight, large surface area, energy absorption, etc., are critical. However, the design and fabrication of such lattice structures poses several challenges. From a design perspective, current methods are computationally prohibitive, or require artificial c ...

  6. Web-based Application for Aircraft Component Fatigue Life Management

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N182100

    Navy aircraft data are stored in several database management systems, both in digital format (data recorders and sensors) and paper records. Additionally, with respect to life management and maintenance, and repair and overhaul (MRO) activities. This approach results in multiplicity of data, some contradictory data, and incomplete data. An efficient Web-Based platform is needed with a reasoning en ...

  7. Low-density Multifunctional Graphene Foam as an Explosion Suppression Material

    SBC: DIGITAL MATERIALS LLC            Topic: N182121

    Aircraft fuel tanks use explosion suppression foams to mitigate the explosion effects as part of the protection system. However, considering technical challenges in maintenance protocols and relatively high fuel displacement/retention volume percentages coming along with current material solutions, the target application segment requires lightweight and high-performance innovative explosion suppre ...

  9. Systematic Fatigue Test Spectrum Editing Using Wavelet Transformations

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N18BT029

    TDA focuses on developing a state of the art time-frequency-based fatigue spectrum editing (TF-based FSE) framework to reduce the time of fatigue computational analysis and tests. The proposed framework will address (a) through understanding of fatigue loading histories including stationary, nonstationary, linear, and non-linear spectrums, (b) developing a multi-approach TF framework for both unia ...

  10. In Situ Marine-Grade Aluminum Alloy Characterization for Sensitization Resistance and Stress Corrosion Cracking Prediction

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N18AT010

    The goal of this proposal is to develop a compact sensor package and monitoring protocol for detecting the degree of sensitization in 5xxx series alloys that accounts for lot-to-lot variability. 5xxx series aluminum alloys have been utilized in marine applications to reduce weight and lower the center of gravity of ships for many decades. While effective, they can become susceptible to intergranul ...
