  1. Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N11AT030

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems, etc.). Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their ea ...

  2. Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N17AT030

    Optonicus proposes development of the Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS) laser additive manufacturing (LAM) system. The WALAM-ABS metal additive manufacturing system will solve long-standing drawbacks imposed by current single-point selective laser melting LAM technology through the use of wide-area processing based on proprietary multi-beam fib ...

  3. Synergistic MIMO Radar and Data Adaptive Signal Processing Experimentation

    SBC: INTEGRATED ADAPTIVE APPLICATIONS, INC            Topic: N11AT002

    The proposed work seeks to clearly demonstrate the advantage of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar architecture over a similar single-input multiple-output (SIMO) or phased array system; the benefit of applying data-adaptive signal processing techniques in favor of their data-independent counterparts; and the utility of transmitting advanced probing waveforms as opposed to conventiona ...

  4. Refractory Metal Coating for Electromagnetic Launcher Rails

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    Electromagnetic launchers or rail guns are a key component of the Navy’s all-electric ship of the future, but they lack the durability required for repeated firings. TDA Research and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) are developing a tough, durable and conductive refractory metal coating that will protect the copper alloy conductors (rails) from the extreme heat and wear conditions inside the ...

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

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    Additive manufacturing is an extremely customizable process; however, variations in the chosen build parameters can lead to drastic differences in part performance. The performance variation due to process parameters is still not well understood, and propagating all uncertainties from the various sources has been a challenge. Sources of AM parts’ performance variability include uncertainties in ...

  6. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: N13AT014

    Complex software systems are typically developed by disparate engineering teams working concurrently. At the same time, software requirements are frequently dynamic, evolving even during active development cycles. Discrepancies between how software is defined and how it is implemented at the modular level can cascade into critical system errors when modules are integrated. More troubling is that i ...

  7. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT028

    While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...

  8. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N10AT028

    Thermo-mechanical processes of turbine disks have been progressively improved to meet microstructural requirements tailored for advanced, sustainable high temperature performances. However, the chemistry of typical Ni-base turbine disk alloys is very complex, and yields a variety of phases and microstructural anomalies under different thermo-mechanical heat treatments. These microstructural hetero ...

  9. Principled Design of an Augmented Reality Trainer for Medics

    SBC: Unveil LLC            Topic: DHP17A003

    Augmented reality (AR) offers the ability to enhance existing combat medic training by including perceptual cues and adaptive training elements to traditional simulation-based training using manikins. Unveil has developed a training system called the Macrocognitive AR Trainer (MART). MART is designed to foster the development of macrocognitive skills (e.g., sensemaking, assessment skills, mental m ...

  10. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...
