  3. PROSI: PRECISION OPTICAL-GPS METROLOGY FOR SIMULTANEOUS MACHINING AND INSPECTION

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: At present, the common practice in the fighter aircraft industry is to use touch probes as secondary measurement systems to maintain tight machining tolerance control. The current touch-probe inspection process renders the typical milling machine idle while features of the machined part are slowly and intrusively being inspected, one feature at a time, over 1.5 to 3 hours per part. To m ...

  5. Bayesian Reliability Assessment of Non-Destructive Evaluation (BRANDE)

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft structural components are prone to damage typically assessed by various NDE tools. Damage to the aircraft structural components decreases operational readiness and compromises safety if improperly maintained; however, frequent inspections and maintenance is expensive. CBM+ equipped platforms, when supported by models and simulations typically experience an increase in operatio ...

  8. Modified Nanoparticles for Lipophilic Toxin Sequestration

    SBC: AuraSense, LLC            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are a class of weaponizable toxic secondary metabolites of molds and fungi. No treatments exist for exposure to these lipophilic poisons. AuraSense proposes to use lipid and protein modified gold nanoparticles to develop constructs for the sequestration of toxic lipophilic molecules. Nanoparticles are ideal materials for development of such a system, as they are able to be fi ...
