  1. Tension/Extension Test Device for Ultra High Stren

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: A09097

    In this program, DSR proposes to develop a multi-use test system that will be capable of mechanically testing conventional and ultra high-strength geologic and man-made materials and obtaining post-peak stress-strain properties in tri-axial compression and direct tension/ extension (DTE) configurations. In Phase I, mechanical and hydraulic conceptual designs will be developed for the dual-use tes ...

  3. Development of Shock Wave Magnetic Flux Compression Generators

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: A07187

    Explosive pulsed power is currently being developed for use as single shot power supplies in advanced munitions. These explosive pulsed power devices include Magnetic Flux Compression Generators (FCGs), Ferroelectric Generators (FEGs), and Ferromagnetic Generators (FMGs). With the possible exception of the FMG, these generators probably cannot be built to survive the high G-force environments of ...

  4. Probabilistic Evidential Reasoning for Collecting Signals Intelligence Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: A07106

    The goal of this project is to develop a scalable software platform for SigInt collection management and data fusion. This platform will help provide SigInt analysts and users with effective access to the right information at the right time while helping to reduce information overload. The platform is designed to support a cognitive style of information processing and data fusion. The computationa ...

  5. Prevention of Corrosion for Navy Aviation

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N091030

    Management Sciences, Inc. scientists have developed Cognitive Bayesian Information Exploitation (CBNX), a revolutionary set of algorithms that apply context frames as filters to learn causal relationships needed to understand and exploit the meaning of data. We have applied the CBNX toolset to develop real time situation awareness of the health of aircraft engines, forest fires, and intelligent ma ...

  6. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  7. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...

  8. Embedded Component Health Management for Rotorcraft

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: A09019

    Embedded usage tracking of helicopter rotating components, combined with active radio frequency identification (RFID) has the potential to reduce maintenance costs, reduce weight, maximize structural life, & enhance safety. Energy harvesting used with advanced, micro-power wireless sensing electronics, enables the realization of truly autonomous sensing and recording. The objective of this SBIR ...

  9. Passive Optical Detection of Acoustic Signatures

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: A07059

    We propose to further develop a concept for remote passive optical measurement of acoustic target signatures. Potential goals of the measurement are detection, activity assessment, or identification. The measurement concept produces an area image of the vibrational content of the target scene. We propose to build a detector system operating in the thermal infrared band, to field-test the unit, and ...

  10. Tactical Beam Director for Airborne High Energy Laser Applications

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N091009

    This Phase I SBIR will design a 30 cm beam director for HEL airborne tactical applications for a variety of Navy Missions. The beam director is to exhibit minimal weight and footprint. The beam director itself will be composite structure with at least 2 radians per second angular velocity and 2 radians per second squared acceleration capability. It is expected that the beam director will have an u ...
