  2. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  4. BMDS Aggregate Semantic Store (BASS)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: MDA14010

    Legacy database systems often exhibit the feature of being stove piped and difficult to integrate over time. This is because they were often developed for ad hoc purposes for specific groups, thus their data models and inherent structure is not always well understood except by a select few people who designed and built the database. This means data retrieval using these legacy systems is a chall ...

  5. Advanced Electroanalytical Methods for Failure Mode Analysis and Screening of Base Metal Capacitors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Over 95% of the multilayer ceramic capacitors manufactured worldwide use base metal electrode (BME) technology and they are one of the key components in much of the modern electronics. BME capacitors have, over the last 20 years, made significant improvements in performance and reliability; making them more competitive for a wide range of applications. However, there remains significant concerns ...

  6. Weapon Inspection Sustainment and Recording Device (WISARD)

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T001

    The process by which weapon systems go from point of manufacture to field usage is not a simple one. Devices can be held in storage for decades before use, and they can be subjected to significant and potentially damaging environmental conditions throughout the systems lifecycle. Latent and intermittent failures occur, and it is difficult to detect these malfunctions without actively monitoring ...

  7. Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test Methods

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA14T003

    The objective of the proposed effort is to identify and develop expedient, efficient and cost-effective defect screening methods and manufacturing process controls to reduce or eliminate reliability-impairing defects in base metal electrode(BME) multilayered ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). To accomplish this efficiently, Texas Research Institute Austin has assembled an alliance of ceramicists, metall ...

  8. Q-Remap

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: MDA14006

    There is a demand for a novel method by which memory addresses may be reconfigured. To achieve this goal, QuickFlex proposes the development of Q-Remap. The Q-Remap technology will provide a two-step scheme to reorganize memory addresses, both with an initial translation and with the ability to make further changes at runtime. Q-Remap functions without disrupting modern optimizations such as ca ...

  9. Robust Phase Modulators and Polarization Controllers for High Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies Inc            Topic: MDA14017

    Both polarization controllers and phase modulators are widely used in telecommunications and other applications. Presently, most polarization controllers and phase modulators cannot handle high optical power up to 10 W/channel. In this SBIR program, researchers of Fontus Applied Technologies propose an innovative polarization controller and a phase modulator using our advanced electro-optic tech ...

  10. Multi-Phenomenology Intercept Reconstruction

    SBC: Princton Science, Inc. (Scitec, Inc.)            Topic: MDA14009

    Debris mitigation for both RF and EO/IR sensors is necessary for improving the BMDS against raid scenarios. The time and length scales important to debris mitigation span a large range, and are dependent upon engagement conditions. To address the problem of debris mitigation, accurate debris fields must be modeled for all potential engagement conditions, that is validated to the best sources of ...
