  2. A Unified Approach to Sensor-Based Terrain Characterization and UGV Mobility Prediction

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A07T027

    Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) will play an important role in the nation’s next-generation ground forces. One key limitation on autonomous terrain analysis arises from current approaches to sensor data processing. A significant amount of research in the robotics community has been devoted to interpreting data from common UGV sensors. Most current approaches to non-geometric terrain property ...

  3. Advanced Friction Stir Processing for Ultra-refined Microstructure Development of Aluminum 7XXX Series Alloys

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: AF07T038

    Friction Stir Processing (FSP) has been demonstrated to generate refined microstructures, resulting in improved material properties. This has several areas of application. First, FSP can enhance the formability of the particular alloy of interest. This is especially important for the superplastic forming process, where the use of FSP can be used to create superplastic behavior at high strain r ...

  4. Advanced System of Systems Design Capability

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: N06T016

    The Navy needs to design new ships capable of accomplishing complex missions at a reduced cost. In order to enable US military response to threats around the world new ships must be designed with improved operational abilities and with capabilities to integrate with other ships and platforms for maximum operational flexibility. New enabling technology is needed for performing systematic design f ...

  5. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters are increasingly relying on technology equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a ...

  6. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) are proposed for detailed analysis to determine their potential to meet future Navy fuel needs by means of highly selective Fischer Tropsch Synthesis (FTS). MFEC are comprised of small grains of supported catalysts (ca. 10-200 micron diameter) entrapped within sinter-locked networks of micron diameter metal fibers. Metal fibers comprise only 5-10 vol% of the ...

  8. Comprehensive Inspection of Turbine Hot Section Blades and Vanes Using Active Thermography

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: N06T011

    Comprehensive nondestructive Inspection (NDI) of aircraft turbine blades and vanes currently involves a sequence of separate inspections that may involve flow measurement, radiography, ultrasound and wire testing. The process is time-consuming and expensive, and several key inspections rely on subjective visual testing by a human operator. In Phase I, we demonstrated that the entire suite of cri ...

  9. Development of Multi-Frequency Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF08T020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. In doing this, we will develop a hybrid diffusion-Monte Carlo (HDMC) model that effic ...

  10. Efficient Stochastic Mobility Prediction for Mobile Robotic Systems

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A07T026

    The Army has devoted significant resources to understanding and predicting the mobility of military vehicles in natural terrain. Future Army operations (under FCS) will employ small (i.e. sub-500 kg) autonomous or semi-autonomous UGVs in both cross-country and urban environments. A fundamental requirement of these UGVs is to quickly and robustly predict their ability to successfully negotiate te ...
