  1. Joining of Very Large, Low Cost Pultruded Advanced Composite Structures in Shipbuilding

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N02049

    KaZaK Composites proposes to design and demonstrate innovative, low cost pultrusion technology that meets DD(X) structural requirements, and could significantly reduce the finished cost of composite ship structures compared to VARTM. A database of design information is required to confidently commit to the use of a material in ship structures. It has been KCI's assertion that the pultrusion proce ...

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A03030

    Basic Digital RF Memory (DRFM) theory is well understood, mature and low-risk, having been demonstrated and used in multiple applications over many years. DRFM practice and technology have stagnated over the last several years due to the lack of investment in the technology base and rapid digitization of the weapon systems with which DRFMs must interact. With the current Force Transformation obj ...

  3. Innovative Lubricant Quality Monitoring Using Optical Computing

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N02063

    In this Phase II program Foster-Miller will design, build and install on Naval platforms a radically different type of oil condition monitor, the Lubricant Quality Sensor (LQS). This sensor will be designed to probe the fluid quality of a variety of synthetic and diesel lubricants applicable to both military and commercial platforms. The LQS builds on the successful Phase I demonstration of the ...

  4. Beryllium Alloy Replacement Materials for Missile Optical Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: MDA03048

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate an innovative, low cost and health hazard-free ceramic matrix composite (CMC) material to effectively substitute beryllium and its alloys in EKV optical structures. We previously demonstrated an affordable and scalable processing route to produce high performance and complex shaped CMC materials. During Phase I, mechanical and thermal properties of our low cost SiC m ...

  5. Cost-Effective Acicular Seed Production for SSC Piezoelectric Single Crystal Materials

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: SB031005

    MSI has developed a method of producing solid state converted (SSC) relaxor ferroelectrics that involved recrystallization through the addition of orientable seeds that act as nucleation sites in the ceramic matrix. MSI has explored both integrated seed and epitaxial approaches to SSC. SSC has been demonstrated to produce a highly textured material with property enhancements. One remaining obst ...

  6. Untethered Haptics-Optional Surgical Training System

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: A03162

    Energid Technologies proposes a realistic haptics-optional simulator designed for surgical training. The design is modular, with components that can build simulations for different applications and levels of fidelity--with and without haptics feedback. The simulation interface is untethered, without a physical connection to surgical tools. Machine vision is used to track the tools, and a novel ...

  7. Low Cost, Broadband Mk54 Torpedo Arrays

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: N02066

    A low cost, broad bandwidth, acoustic homing array is needed for the Mk 54 torpedo to replace the lagacy Mk 50 array that was designed for blue water operation and is no longer in production. Under this Phase II SBIR program, MSI proposes to design and develop an upgraded array capable of improved performance in littoral undersea warfare using its proven low cost injection molded 1-3 piezocomposit ...

  8. Robust Contingency Planning for Multiple ISR Sensors

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: AF03213

    An essential capability of an information gathering architecture is the ability to adapt to dynamic re-tasking requirements (i.e. the ability to manage real-time moding, pointing, and directing of ISR sensors) commensurate with the decision-making time scale of tactical, battlefield operations. Reliance on reactive dynamic re-tasking alone is likely to require excessive sensing resources to meet ...

  9. Window Material for High Energy Laser Application

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: AF03124

    Transparent ALON polycrystalline ceramic is a durable window material currently under development for high energy lasers (HEL) operating at near infrared wavelengths (NIR). ALON has high transparency, high strength and hardness and can be economically scaled to large widow sizes up to 600 mm diameter. Methods of reducing the optical absorption and scatter have been developed which will allow ALO ...

  10. Aerosol Mass Spectrometer for Aircraft Sampling using Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N03227

    Aerosol particles play an important role in visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their impacts which depend on their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. An innovative aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS)has been recently designed to fill a critical need for size-resolved, quantitative chemical composition data on a ...
