  1. High Cycle Fatigue Testing of Turbine Blades Under Biaxial Loading


    Although technologies derived under the Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) initiative should result in higher performance of gas turbine engines, the durability of engine components continues to be one of the most important design issues which impacts their affordability and robustness. It is currently very difficult to measure or predict the fatigue life of engine com ...

  2. Ambient Light Control Using Guest Host Liquid Crystal-Dye Systems

    SBC: Alphamicron, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Continuous attenuation of ambient light without image distortion is of great importance in helmet mounted displays. To accomplish this, we propose a device based on liquid crystal-dichroic dye mixture. The system is electrically controllable, light weight, with full grey scale capability for all light conditions. It addresses all of the requirements and restrictions of visor based helmet mounte ...

  3. Ion Beam Treatment for Metal Matrix Composites

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New materials such as continuous fiber reinforced aluminum matrix composites exceptional performance, but often at the expense of incompatibility with conventional joining techniques. Spacecraft structures require high stiffness for stable structures and launch vibration resistance, as well as low outgassing characteristics, especially when cryogenic sensors are in use on the spacecraft. Solutio ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Department of DefenseAir Force


    Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to develop a computer platform for simulation-and-optimization-based design of multiple-stage manufacturing processes. Phase I will use metal forming processes to demonstrate feasibility of embedding analytical models of basic transport phenomena into design models that include geometric, microstructure, and processing features. Each stage of a me ...

  5. Collaborative Engineering Real Time Data Base Correlation Tool

    SBC: Defense Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this effort is to define key technical requirements, identify enabling technologies, conduct technology experiments, develop a system specification, provide an implementation approach, and develop a demonstration plan for a Collaborative Engineering Real Time Database Correlation Tool to support the development and correlation of databased required for the success of a collaborati ...

  6. Cost Estimating Methodology for Advanced Air Vehicles

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Historically, the Air Vehicle Technology industry has developed technologies based upon performance and, to a much lesser extent, the cost of individual technologies. The public and government will no longer justify and support these costs inlight of a perception that the enemy has been defeated. Emphasis of Science and Technology efforts must now be on system affordability. Further "gray beard ...

  8. Simulations and Decision Support Technologies For Logistics Managers


    KLSS will thoroughly investigate the concept of using simulations to enhance the ability of Logistics Managers to identify problems and determine solutions. Other decision support alternatives to be research include the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Neural Networks (NN) and diagnostics based tools. KLSS will focus the majority of this Phase I effort investigating simulation based decision ...

  9. Cognitive Engineering to Support Distributed Information Warfare Teams

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Distributed Information Warfare Teams are vulnerable to many problems involving information sharing: inadvertent creation of overload conditions, failure to detect patterns that cross between team members, misinterpretations, and so forth. Many of these difficulties can be addressed by adding more context to messages, but context itself contributes to information overload. Simplistic solutions ...

  10. Cognitive Demands for Sustainment of Large Weapons Systems

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will apply powerful techniques of Cognitive Task Analysis to idenfity and represent the strategies and mental models of skilled maintenance technicians. Routine maintenance can be decomposed into steps and procedures, using methods of linear analysis. In contrast, sustainment attempts to minimize disassembly, using judgments and diagnoses and problem solving--it is a creative activity that ca ...
