A Remote Egg-oiling System with Autonomous and Automated Target Object Identification for Nuisance Bird ManagementSBC: Hitron Technologies Inc. Topic: N183142
Leveraging our experience and expertise in robot development and system integration (hardware and software) as well as deep learning for agricultural applications, Hitron Technologies Inc. (HTI) proposes to develop an Intelligent Remote Egg Oiling System (IREOS), with the collaboration of University of South Carolina (USC). The IREOS allows for effective nuisance bird management by performing auto ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Highly Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Alloys: Innovative Processing Methods to Enhanced Corrosion Resistance (e.g., layered structures, etc.)SBC: ATI, INC. Topic: OSD09C03
Two different approaches will be investigated for producing aluminum alloys with a layer structure that have mechanical properties similar to Al 7050-T7 and Al 7075-T6 and greatly improved corrosion resistance. Layered aluminum alloys will be produced using the Novelis-Fusion™ casting process. This process is very cost effective and has been demonstrate on commercial products. The other appro ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseNavy
Innovative Methodologies for the Development of a High Strength, Anodize-Free Corrosion Resistant, Aerospace Aluminum AlloysSBC: ATI, INC. Topic: OSD09C02
The objective of this program is develop high strength aluminum alloys ( as high strength as that of 7075-T6) that would not require anodization to achieve corrosion resistance. Among the Al alloy systems, only 7xxx and Al-Cu-Li alloy systems are capable of such a high strength level of 7075-T6 properties ( design minimum tensile yield stress of 75 ksi). Therefore, only these two alloy systems ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseNavy
