  1. Portable Non-Contact Heating and Soldering Tool


    Currently available soldering and heat gun systems have several significant deficiencies that can result in lower quality repairs and higher maintenance costs. The existing soldering irons naturally lead to cross-contamination between leaded and lead-free solders, resulting in degraded solder joints. The existing heat guns require bulky accessories and/or external electric power, making them unwie ...

  2. Passive Coherent Laser Amplifier Combining


    Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) will have two existing NAVSEA 1 kW fiber laser amplifiers modified to correct a previously identified problem of four-wave mixing. After testing to verify performance of the refurbished laser amplifiers, AAC will conduct tests with this equipment using a passive coherent combining technique patented by Northrop Grumman Corporation. The testing will indicate th ...

  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. Development of Single-Layer Universal Combat Uniform Material

    SBC: NANOSYNTEX            Topic: N08104

    A single layer Universal Combat Uniform offering FR, CB, and WR protection would be extremely advantageous on the battlefield allowing for rapid deployment, ease of use and comfort of wear. Nanosyntex’s approach will be to produce a single layered nonwoven fabric via its patented multi-tiered composite technology using high performance inherently FR fibers having excellent flame and thermal resi ...

  6. Corrosion Resistant Naval Alloys: Innovative Multi-Scale Computational Modeling and Simulation Tools

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09C01

    The overall objective of the proposed effort is to build a methodology and the associated multi-scale computational tools that enable the development of corrosion resistant alloys for use in Naval aircraft. This will be achieved by adding corrosion damage prediction capabilities to VEXTEC’s existing damage models which simulate material fatigue and predict failure. The goal is a framework that a ...

  7. Novel Analytical Methods for Sandwich Core Termination Features

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N092098

    The proposed project will develop a structural analysis framework incorporating high performance composite design methodologies to predict the reliability of sandwich termination features. The sandwich core termination region offers many challenges to properly design and verify its structural integrity. Complexities such as numerous interacting failure modes and sensitivity to manufacturing variat ...

  8. Gearbox Load and Life Simulation Software

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N091017

    The overall objective of the proposed effort is to build a methodology and the associated computational tools that predict component life for rotor wing drive systems. This will be achieved by adding mission load variability to VEXTEC’s existing gear component life prediction tool. The goal is a framework that accounts for mission variability and gear fatigue damage and produces a comprehensive ...

  9. Military Gas Turbine Engine High-Cycle Fatigue (HCF) Mitigation

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N04009

    The JSF Program requires a probabilistic approach to high cycle fatigue (HCF) foreign object damage (FOD) limit determination. The current Goodman diagram based methods have a capability gap addressing the JSF probabilisitic requirements and are costly and time consuming due to the extensive bench fatigue testing required. Through Phase I and II SBIR contracts VEXTEC demonstrated the ability to us ...
