  1. Automated, Rapid Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) of Large Scale Composite Structures

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: N092097

    ABSTRACT In the previous Phase II program, TWI demonstrated that Large Standoff / Large Area Thermography (LASLAT) can successfully be applied to Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) of composite aircraft structures. The method employed was based on optical excitation using a novel projector and signal processing developed by TWI. Capability was demonstrated on a composite structure at a standoff dista ...

  2. Terahertz Imaging for Detection of Corrosion and Defects Under Hull Coatings

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N121064

    In this Phase II SBIR project we propose to build and test a prototype non-contact time-domain terahertz non-destructive evaluation scanning system to acquire sub-surface images beneath hull coatings. The system will enable the rapid detection of hull defects such as corrosion and gouges hidden beneath hull coating; as well as hull coating material defects and hull coating adhesion defects. The Ph ...

  3. Small Unmanned Surface Vehicle Propulsion System

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N121054

    The US Navy has successfully developed a man-portable, X-class Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) for shallow water coastal and riverine operations. Although the prototype USV has proven its utility during initial test and evaluation, several key technological hurdles remain. Increasing the top speed and extending the endurance through efficiency improvements would greatly improve this X-class USVs uti ...

  4. Spherical Piezocrystal Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N122142

    We propose the continued design, development and testing of spherical piezocrystal transducers and supporting technology including our gyroid transducer. The Phase II effort covers the modeling and demonstration of the gyroid transducer and comparison of performance with several piezocrystal and piezoceramic materials and testing in realistic environment. The electroacoustic performance will be es ...

  6. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    The Pedestrian Automated System for Enforcement and Safety is a novel video and radar based system that is able to detect and track vehicles and pedestrians, and to determine when violations of pedestrian right of way have occurred. By using multiple sensor modalities the system provides a robust tracking solution. The use of radar provides long standoff detection and tracking of vehicles with hig ...

  7. HMMWV Variable Vehicle Cone Index (VCI)

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N121002

    GS Engineering has developed through Phase I SBIR efforts, a variable VCI solution to evaluate and characterize vehicle operating terrain, for dynamic selection of CTIS operating modes, with no required operator input. By continually monitoring the terrain and adjusting the operating mode and associated tire pressures, mobility is increased in soft terrain and fuel efficiency is increased on hard ...

  8. Transit Safety

    SBC: Mackinac Technology Company, The            Topic: 131FT1

    The Mackinac Technology Company is proposing to continue its Phase I development of a novel antireflection technology that will dramatically reduce the reflection of interior lighting on transit bus windshields and significantly improve driver visibility and passenger/pedestrian safety. Transit bus operators are required to maintain a minimum level of interior lighting while operating at night. ...

  9. Efficient HF Transmit Antennas Utilizing Platform Coupling and Reconfigurable Aperture

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N12AT015

    Virtual EM is proposing a solution for achieving electrically small high-efficiency VHF transmit antennas suitable for use on medium size Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the proposed approach, maximum use of the UAVs airframe for the antenna improves radiation efficiency while dynamic reconfiguration of the antenna aperture provides frequency tuning and hence lower noise floor. Feasibility has ...
