  1. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  3. Vascularized Tissue Construction Using Specialized 3D Bioprinting Techniques

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A17068

    Tissue engineering technology is of particular import to the Army for the matter of producing tissue replacements for the repair and regeneration of various organ systems (liver, heart, muscle, lung, etc.) for wounded patients. Unfortunately, the production of masses of tissue with thicknesses greater than ~1 mm presents a challenge due to diffusion limits of nutrients into the tissue and waste ou ...

  4. Adaptive Armor Actuator Mechanisms

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A17115

    Conventional vehicle armor has evolved considerably over the years, including homogeneous plates, composite materials, and reactive substrates.Variable orientations have also been implemented, including curved, sloped, angled, and spaced plates.A common characteristic among these conventional armor solutions is that they are static and incapable of changing in response to local threats.Adding a me ...

  5. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antifungals for Textile Applications

    SBC: Antimicrobial Materials, Inc.            Topic: A17018

    Fungal skin infections plague active duty servicemembers at elevated rates due to exposure to warm, humid climates, poor skin hygiene, and close-quarters living arrangements. We have developed a novel solution that incorporates an endophytic fungal extract with selective activity against Trichophyton species of pathogens. In addition, the selected compound has negligible impact on the organisms th ...

  6. Advanced Instrumentation for Carbon-Carbon Structures in Hypersonic Environments

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF171020

    An integrated measurement sensor for carbon-carbon (C-C) structures is needed for testing in arc-jet facilities to meet testing needs for future hypersonic flight systems.This work continues development on a measurement suite capable of surviving the long duration glide phase characteristic of hypersonic vehicles. A fast-response pressure sensor, an instrumented temperature measurement plug, and a ...

  7. MAPTECH: Monitoring And Prediction of Turbine Engine Component Health

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF171052

    Inspection of turbine engine components is an essential part of standard maintenance procedures to ensure the long-term health of aircraft engines. Existing techniques are time-consuming and labor-intensive because they require point-by-point scanning and/or extensive data processing. As a result, these inspections are not cost-effective to conduct, despite being a critical part of long-term susta ...

  10. Command Post Antenna Remoting System (CARS) Prototype Development

    SBC: Syntonics LLC            Topic: A17085

    Phase II prototypes and demonstrates a Command Post Antenna Remoting System (CARS) that can remote antennas for up to six radios in these frequency bands: HF (1.6-30 MHz), Low VHF (30-88 MHz), and UHF (225-450 MHz). The planned radios are the PRC-150/160 (HF); RT-1523 ASIP (SINCGARS/Low VHF), and PRC-117G (UHF), although many other radio types can interoperate with CARS. Each antenna remoting link ...
