  1. Erosion Resistant Coatings for Large Size Gas Turbine Engine Compressor Airfoils

    SBC: AMERICA'S PHENIX, INC.            Topic: N08144

    Jet engine titanium compressor airfoils are susceptible to erosion damage ranging from a few percent loss in blade chord length in fighter engines to more significant erosion exhibited by helicopter engines operating in desert environments. The application of titanium nitride coatings on individual compressor airfoils have provided significant operational, maintenance and safety benefits for helic ...

  2. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  3. ElectronicTextile Antennas

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: SB021014

    Long-duration wide-area surveillance missions increasingly are space-based. MEO orbits offer space-based radar systems more time on station, but require very large array apertures on the order of 100m in diameter. Achieving larger apertures with smaller, lighter launch packages and stable on-orbit pointing is a challenge that E-Textiles promises to meet. Textile processes can be used to achieve a ...

  4. Marine Assessment, Decision, and Planning Tool for Protected Species (MADPT PS)

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N08054

    The overall objective of this SBIR proposal is the development of a software-based tool or database known as the Marine Assessment, Decision, and Planning Tool (MADPT) for Protected Species. Knowledge about federally protected species such as fishes, marine mammals, sea turtles, and invertebrates such as corals or abalone is vital for scheduling at-sea activities so that potential impacts to these ...

  5. Generalized Environmental Acoustic Model Structure for Bottom Backscatter

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N07189

    Existing OAML-approved active acoustic models are under continuous evolution to take advantage of new theoretical and numerical developments and more powerful computational resources. These models are supported by OAML-approved environmental databases that are also constantly updated to accommodate the newly developed models and recent measurements throughout the world. The databases that describe ...

  6. Materials and Device Modeling to Reduce Cost and Time to Exploit Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals in Navy SONAR Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N08061

    We propose the evaluation and measurement of single crystal materials to support performance prediction of cylindrical ring sonar transducers and bar transducers for imaging sonar. The project also encompasses the construction and evaluation of exemplar devices.

  7. User Toolkit for Reducing Cost and Time in the Design of SONAR Systems Using Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N08063

    We propose the development of a detailed Cylindrical Transducers User Toolkit for the design of underwater acoustic transducers and sonar systems employing cylindrical transducers and relaxor piezoelectric single crystals. The User Toolkit will providing the systems designers with a simple way to project the acoustic performance for the class of cylindrical transducers and explore the design space ...

  8. Automated Pixel Geo-Registration for Precise Imaging

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: AF081070

    We study the problem of sensor calibration as it might be applied to a tactical UAV system where operability and robustness are paramount. A large number of airframes and diversity of sensor types argues for an approach that is low cost (exploiting calibration targets in the field) and applicable for various sensors. The study considers various approaches to sensor calibration and measurements e ...

  9. Low-Cost Processing of Aluminum-Based Nanothermites

    SBC: INNOVATIVE MATERIALS & PROCESSES LLC            Topic: N08020

    The proposed Phase I SBIR work is focused on development and testing of a continuous process for mixing of binary nanopowders in a micro-mixer system. The main focus will be on safe mixing of aluminum and bismuth trioxide or iron oxide nanopowders in water for their application as percussion primers or components of low energy initiators. The effectiveness of mixing in the continuous micro-mixer ...

  10. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF081051

    We will develop "flexible sensing" techniques that will enable a single sensor to perform the functions of both a "seeker" and a "target detection device". One set of approaches will comprise resolution enhancement and other techniques to extract target identification and tracking information, as would be provided by a "seeker", from a low resolution / high update rate sensor. Hyperacuity-based a ...
