  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 ...

  3. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  4. High Stability Composite Ablative Insulator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14020

    Ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems make use of carbon cloth - phenolic (CCP) resin composite materials, particularly as ablative insulators in the inlets and throats of rocket motor nozzles. However, CCP exhibits aging through increased moisture content, arising from both water uptake in ambient air and endogenous water generation in the resin as it ages. The presence of water in CCP leads ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
