  1. Expanded Operating Domain Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06T034

    Single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics, PMN-PT, have shown great promise for broad bandwidth sonar transducers. However, the benefits of PMN-PT are somewhat counterbalanced by its maximum temperature limitation (~80 to 95°C), low coercive field (~2kV/cm) and low mechanical quality factor (60-80) for compact, high power and high duty cycle applications. The new crystal compositions with expanded op ...

  2. Autonomous seafloor geotechnical property sensor

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services and Instrument            Topic: N06160

    Current geo-technical measurement systems are low resolution and generally require significant research vessel support. In this SBIR, the OASIS/WHOI team proposes to build a system that will remotely, autonomously and rapidly estimate and map shear strength parameters using state-of-the art Autonomous Undersea Vehicle (AUV) technology. The AUV-based Acoustic Sediment Classifier (ASC) is an inno ...

  3. Flame Resistant Material For Use in Protective Garment Applications

    SBC: Nanosyntex            Topic: A05188

    The main objective of this proposal is to build on the efforts of the Army SBIR Phase I project to finalize the design and development of a superior lightweight and comfortable flame resistant garment made of nonwoven composite fabric. The goal is to significantly elevate the fire and thermal protection properties of these next generation composite fabrics over conventional Nomex® at lower cost. ...

  4. Three-Dimensional Nonlinear Structural Analysis Methods for Gas Turbine Engine Metallic Components and Component Assemblies

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF06095

    The objective of this Phase II program is to implement, demonstrate and validate the computational techniques that were developed in Phase I that can be used for materials-damage based prognosis of gas turbine engine components and component assemblies. This approach will consist of a probabilistic multi-axial three-dimensional non-linear structural analysis method to enable the implementation of ...

  5. Morphing High Temperature Shape Memory Alloy Actuators for Hypersonic Projectiles

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N05T013

    Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) materials present unique benefits to the control and stabilization of hypersonic projectiles. Midé and the University of Colorado at Boulder is concluded in Phase I that SMA materials offer distinct advantages for the control of hypersonic projectile through the development and analysis of concepts that could achieve the desired flight control characteristics within the ...

  6. VAMAV: Visual Collision Detection and Avoidance for a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF06149

    This proposal presents the VAMAV system (Visual Awareness/Avoidance for a Micro Air Vehicle) for monocular visual collision detection and avoidance. Real time collision detection will be implemented using a time-to-collision approach based on area moment estimates of expansion from globally optimal image segmentation. This approach does not require explicit optical flow computations, and avoids n ...

  7. Ethylene Control in Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: PRIMAIRA, LLC            Topic: A06180

    The accumulation of ethylene in the transport and storage of fresh produce is an important problem for the US Army and for commercial agriculture. Certain fruits and vegetables generate ethylene as a natural part of their ripening cycle. Other fruits and vegetables are highly sensitive to the presence of ethylene, but may or may not produce the ethylene themselves. Small amounts of ethylene can in ...

  8. Volume Holographic Gratings for Improved Beam Splitting in Multi-Spectral Passive Anti-Submarine Warfare System

    SBC: RL ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N06013

    RL Associates, Inc. proposes to design, construct, and test a 12-channel multi-spectral beamsplitter using volume holographic optical elements for use in the Navy’s electro-optic passive antisubmarine warfare system (EPAS). EPAS currently uses 12 spectral filters, one per visible channel, each having separate lenses for collection of visible spectra. These distinct optics and optical mounts fo ...

  9. Model-based Automated Target ID and Pose Estimation from SAR and ISAR Data

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A06206

    Automatic Target Recognition and intent determination from airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) or Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging requires highly accurate pose determination. Prior knowledge in the form of radar signatures of 3D target models that accurately capture locations of a few (

  10. Non-Contact, Non-Destructive Sensor for Wet Layer Thickness of Marine Paints

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N05068

    PSI proposes to develop a real-time standoff paint thickness sensor for marine paints utilizing time-domain terahertz technology. The THz transceiver will operate in a mode analogous to a pulsed radar ranging system. Ultrashort pulses, ~300 femtosecond full width half maximum, of low-power, eye-safe THz radiation, comprising wavelengths between about 30 and 1000 microns, are focused onto a freshly ...
