  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

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


    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 ...
