  1. A Remote Egg-oiling System with Autonomous and Automated Target Object Identification for Nuisance Bird Management

    SBC: 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 ...

  2. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level. In the modified GMAW proposed, a bypass torch is added to an existing GMAW system to bypass part of ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Innovative Methodologies for the Development of a High Strength, Anodize-Free Corrosion Resistant, Aerospace Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: 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 ...

  5. Nanoporous Thermal Barrier Coatings for Aircraft Structural Surfaces

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N091033

    The need exists for a low-density and low-conductivity spray-in-place thermal barrier coating for application to aluminum and composite aircraft surfaces. Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI®) has a family of commercial thermal barrier systems, designated FlexFram™, which are TRL9/MRL10 Navy-qualified thermal barrier coatings originally developed for protection of ship surfaces from rocket motor blasts ...

  6. High Temperature, High Stress GPS Antenna Window

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N08215

    The development of guided munitions offers interesting challenges in system, component, and materials design. Indeed, system requirements drive component requirements which, in turn, drive material requirements. A prime example of this linkage may be seen in the component of focus for this proposed effort; a GPS antenna. The primary functionality of these components, EM transparency for trackin ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH STRENGTH CARBON FIBER/CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES ARE ATTRACTIVE MATERIALS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE APPLICATIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE LIGHTWEIGHT AND RETAIN STRENGTH AT HIGH TEMPERATURES. HOWEVER, THESE COMPOSITES BECOME SEVERELY OXIDIZED ABOVE 700 DEG F IN AIR OR AN OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENT. PREVIOUS RESEARCH AT FMI INDICATES THAT CERAMIC MATRICES CAN BE INTRODUCED INTO A FIBROUS PREFORM USING SIMILAR PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY TO CARBO ...
