  1. Portable Multimodal Biometric Devices

    SBC: AZIMUTH INC            Topic: N08210

    Historically, portable biometric collection systems have been designed for fixed Law Enforcement office applications. Their limitations stem from the fact that they were designed for specific hardware collection sensors optimized for a specific application. To a large extent the software is proprietary to a single vendor’s sensor suite and not designed to accept international character sets. Cur ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Nonlinear Interaction of Impulsive Acoustic/Hydrodynamic Sources and Natural Ocean Inhomogeneities

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: N09T002

    Scattering models have been developed during previous efforts, improving understanding of radar and optical signatures which may be anticipated under varying conditions and viewing geometries. Those models are extended here to the domain of impulsive, nonlinear interactions between acoustics and hydrodynamics, with attention to E-M field influences and the impact of a moving underwater object on ...

  5. Multi-Layer Approach for Corrosion Resistance of Aircraft Aluminum Alloys


    The objective of this proposed Phase I study is to develop an alternate production practice for high-strength aircraft aluminum alloys via an experimental layering process in order to enhance stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance. The basic operational processing procedure is to produce aluminum through roll bonding of a composite of several layers of standard material such that the grain sha ...

  6. Alloy Design for Corrosion Resistance Via Computational Optimization Route


    The objective of the proposed SBIR Phase I study is to evolve an aluminum alloy (7xxx series) with superior corrosion resistance and mechanical properties making use of computational tools. The methodology of this approach is to obtain corrosion data from the literature as input data and then perform optimization trials making use of the multi-objective hybrid evolutionary optimization software pa ...
