  1. Intelligent Flexible Fixturing System

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Two approaches are proposed to attack the problems of fixturing process. First, a novel hardware holding system, Dexterous Vise, is proposed. Functionally, a single Dexterous Vise is capable of revealing four faces of the clamped workpiece to the cutting tool without re-fixturing, which actually increases one degree of freedom to the machine tool. A pair of Dexterous Vises, the "Dual-Vise", ena ...

  2. High Performance Piezoceramic Coatings for Ultrasound Applications

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling times and voltages while increasing poling efficiency. Process times will be extremely short. The pr ...

  4. Hydrogen Supply System for Small PEM Fuel Cell Stacks

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    To Operate effectively, PEM small fuel cells stacks need a chemical hydride hydrogen generator. The chemical hydride digital reactor suggested in the proposed program will provide about 2.5 kWH of energy in a5 pound package.--almost three times the energy density of a BA5590 battery. Studies and experiments will be conducted with spe ...

  6. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  8. Hand Held High Resolution Imagin Devices for Aircraft Substructures

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will evaluate two approaches, millimeter waves and opto-acoustics, for locating edges and holes in substructure that are hidden under exterior panels and skins during aircraft assembly. These devices will work in a camera-like fashion to allow non-destructive remote imaging. Eikos has developed promising approaches to both techniques that have the potential to be low cost and easy to u ...

  9. TOS Enhanced Phthalonitrile Resins with MDC Composite Stitching Technology

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will modify and enhance the chemistry of the NRL developed phthalonitrile resin to meet the 700F TOS requirements of high temperature RTM and RFI aerospace composites. Eikos is intimately familiar with the chemistry of the phthalonitrile resin because of our efforts to scale the production of the current bases resin from the laboratory to the pilot plant. Eikos has teamed with McConne ...
