  1. Miniature Corrosion Sensor Hub to Monitor Difficult-to-Access Aircraft Structure with Complex Geometry.

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07169

    Embedded wireless sensors for corrosion monitoring of critical aircraft components are needed for improved condition based maintenance and future structural health monitoring (SHM) systems. The objective of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to design, develop, and test a corrosion measurement and data collection system that can utilize multiple types of corrosion sensors. A key design criterion is t ...

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

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    In the proposed work, we will develop a highly efficient and miniaturized vibration energy harvesting device suitable for use on drive system components of helicopters. The goal is to provide power to run a wireless corrosion hub and sensors (to be developed simultaneously in a separate program). The target power generating capability is 5mW under vibration conditions typical of steady state ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Waste Management System for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: Omni Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: A07167

    Omni Measurement Systems, Inc already has a proposed solution to the liquid waste portion. Omni developed an extended wear, semi-automatic bladder relief device for aircrew through Air Force/Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I, Phase II, Phase II Enhancement and Phase III contracts. The Advanced Mission Extender Device (AMXD) is certified Safe to Fly and FDA approved. Omni is curren ...

  7. Malaria Diagnostic Methods to Replace Microscopy in Clinical Trials

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: A08118

    QuantaSpec is a world leader in FTIR spectroscopy applied research. The purpose of this project is to develop and validate methods for the rapid automated detection and identification of Plasmodia in thin film blood smears using FTIR micro spectroscopy. Infrared micro spectroscopy can be used to detect even a single infected red blood cell and is not fooled by artifacts that confound visual micr ...

  8. Reduced-Order High-Fidelity Models for Signature Propagation

    SBC: SOUND INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: A07T028

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a reliable method to obtain reduced-order models for the simulation of large-scale seismic and acoustic signature propagation. These reduced-order models should be capable of reproducing results comparable to those obtained from a high-fidelity high-performance geologically complex numerical simulation code that normally requires a massively parallel c ...
