  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. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C-Motive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies propos ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Portable Friction Stir Welding Technology for Aluminum Fabrication

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N07T032

    In Phase I, technical and commercial feasibilty has been demonstrated for low force FSW processes that could be implemented onto a flexible and portable robotic system. The processes were implemented on a standard industrial robot, which could be integrated into a portable FSW system for fabrication of aluminum modules for ship superstructure. Two approaches were demonstrated, including a low forc ...

  7. Efficient, Low Emission Generator

    SBC: KASHMERICK ENGINE SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N08105

    This proposed Phase I effort seeks to advance, and demonstrate feasibility of, a patent-pending technology design to address engine-related concerns in small generators as experienced by the Marine Corps and others. The Marine Corps states that small military generators frequently operate at low loads (below maximum mission profile load) and experience wet-stacking and low thermal efficiency. In a ...

  8. Magnetically Coupled Helium Recirculation Fan (MCHRF)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N091054

    ORBITEC proposes to develop the Magnetically Coupled Helium Recirculation Fan (MCHRF), a fan for the recirculation of cryogenic helium gas for shipboard High-Temperature Superconductor Deguassing (HTSDG) systems. The MCHRF will eliminate the mechanical penetration required for the recirculation function by driving the fan with magnetic forces from a tightly packaged integral motor assembly contain ...

  9. Improved Emission/Ionization Algorithms and Modeling Methodology for Design of High-Brightness Electron Guns

    SBC: SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY & APPLIED RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N091081

    High-brightness electron beams are needed for improved power production and reliability of microwave tubes operating in the 80GHz - 300GHz range. At these frequencies, the beam size becomes sufficiently small that beam emittance begins to play a more significant role in the beam dynamics, intensifying thermal management issues and efficiency constraints. To properly model beam formation off the ca ...
