  1. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration Attenuation

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...

  3. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  4. Methods for Actionable Measures of Absolute Cognitive Workload

    SBC: Virtual Reality Rehab, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    Cognitive workload is the amount of mental effort an individual must exert to perform a required set of tasks. The proposed methods for actionable measures of absolute cognitive workload will integrate subjective workload ratings together with real-time physiological measures and assessments of mission effectiveness based on carefully designed scenarios. These data will be used as input parameters ...

  5. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N16AT004

    TDA has teamed up with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as its research institution collaborator to address the target STTR topic objective of quantifying the uncertainties in the mechanical behavior of the AM parts. To quantify uncertainties by minimizing both the computational burden and expensive testing and also overcoming the IP concerns, we propose a novel approach with three layered i ...

  6. Process diagnostics to quantify mechanical performance of AM parts

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: N16AT004

    This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an unprecedented NDI tool to quantify mechanical properties of metal parts made with laser additive manufacturing with material characteristics and process parameters. A fiber laser SAW and heterodyne detection is used with LIBS to study both in-process and post-process for both flat and shaped parts. It is the enabling technology for characterize the AM pa ...

  7. Microstructure Informatics for Propagating Uncertainty in Material and Processing to Performance Predictions of AM Titanium Parts

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    During AM of metallic alloys, a material exhibits several complex physical phenomena that impact the spatial distribution of heterogeneous material properties within a built component. Subsequent post-processing alters the already heterogeneous location-specific material properties. This project is to develop a novel methodology for linking the time and length scales of the various physical phenom ...

  9. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel Metal Matrix Composites using Nickel functionalized Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) has a potential to significantly reduce the cost and lead time associated with the maintenance and sustainment issues faced by the US Navy. However, current materials such as 17-4 PH Stainless Steel typically achieve half the required mechanical properties when additively manufactured, thus limiting the use of AM in critical parts. Recent advancements in carbon nanotube ...
