  1. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the current return rods in the anode of the plasma radiation source (PRS) load, with an annular, supersonic gas jet: an innovation that could drastically reduce source region debris along the line-of-sight (LOS) of the test object, in a z-pinch, soft x-ray, weapons effects simulator, and make the debris mitigation system (DMS) simpler ...

  3. Embedded control of an Active Structural Integrity Monitoring System using interlaced PZT and Thin-Film Transistors

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB042035

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is increasingly being evaluated by the industry as a possible method to improve the safety and reliability of structures and thereby reduce operational cost. However, the scalability and applicability of SHM systems for the monitoring of large structures is still a challenge. The goal of the proposed effort is to develop the capability for enhanced in-situ struct ...

  4. Structural Health Monitoring System for Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA04041

    Composite rocket motor cases are subject to a variety of external environmental and loading conditions from the time-of-manufacturing till usage. These conditions can significantly impact the performance and behavior characteristics of the composite motorcase structure. Fueling of the rocket motor adds an additional complexity in that inspection of the interior becomes impossible while creating th ...

  6. Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) of Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) using structural health monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A04158

    Monitoring the continued health of aircraft subsystems and identifying problems before they affect airworthiness has been a long-term goal of both the U.S. military and commercial aviation industry. Structural health monitoring (SHM) can provide a paradigm shift from schedule-driven maintenance to condition-based maintenance (CBM) of assets. The proposed project will focus on the development of a ...

  7. Wet Film Thickness Sensor/Device for Navy Platforms

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N05068

    The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an infrared radiation detection system to accurately measure the thickness of marine paint as it is being applied. The measurement will be used to control ship automated paint application systems. The proposed measurement technique is robust and will allow the system to be constructed from inexpensive, off-the-shelf fiber opti ...

  9. Erosion Resistant Coatings for Shaft-Driven Compressor (SDC) Impellers

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N04261

    The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of erosion resistant coatings for extending the life of shaft-driven compressor (SDC) impellers on the V-22 Osprey. Shaft-driven compressors are used on many aircraft to provide service to on-board inert/oxygen gas separators and environmental control systems, as well as other functions. The impellers in SDCs typically operated at fr ...
