  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 ...

  4. Methods for Actionable Measures of Absolute Cognitive Workload

    SBC: VR 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 ...

  7. 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 ...
