  1. Novel Extensible Design Approaches for Advanced Aircraft Composite Structural Architectures (MSC P4135)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: ST13A006

    Among the factors that inhibit the use of composite materials in both general aviation aircraft and DoD platforms are the high cost of engineering and the cost of certification. Unless manufacturers can control risk when introducing new materials and pro

  2. Novel schemes for highly reliable aerospace electromechanical primary actuation systems

    SBC: LCDRIVES CORP.            Topic: SB132005

    There is a need to achieve 10^-9 reliability for actuators for critical aerospace applications and this precludes single point failure for all but the simplest and most reliable electrical and mechanical components. LC Drives proposes a method of constructing a high reliability linear actuator for critical aerospace applications that is designed such that jams caused by conventional electrical a ...

  3. Looking Glass

    SBC: Intific, Inc.            Topic: 004

    Looking Glass is an immersive, story-driven game experience that enables computer science education for students K-12. It presents learning in a game-based series of challenge levels that permit a high degree of player choice in tailoring educational progression and adapting game systems that present both STEM and SEL interactions. Gameplay occurs within a futuristic Wonderland, where proficiency ...

  4. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    The dried blood spot (DBS) method is an alternative to venipuncture. The available data indicates that the DBS method is both precise and accurate for a diverse range of compounds. We discovered that proprietary additives vastly improve extraction of proteins in DBS using electrospray. Our unexpected results appear to dramatically increase analyte recovery concentration while reducing DBS prep, an ...

  5. SPIDAR- SPinneret for IDentification And Reconnaissance

    SBC: AUTOMATIKA, INC.            Topic: SB041018

    A tethered rapelling robot system, dubbed SPIDAR, will be built and tested, capable of use in collapsed urban environments for civil-defense and search-and-rescue and reconnaissance applications. The design is based on a modular and payload/marsupial-capable design optimized for use in environments considered for a variety of applications. The project will design, build and test a rugged prototype ...

  6. UAV Survivability Enhancement via Agile Maneuvering in Dynamic Environments

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: SB043048

    A significant challenge in the field of uninhabited air vehicles (UAVs), particularly micro air vehicles (MAVs), is that of navigating through a complex environment such as deep in the urban canyon or underneath a forest canopy. Such environments are filled with a variety of hazards, ranging from large buildings and trees to thin cables and potentially other threatening airborne objects. We propos ...

  7. Information Delivery and Display for Shared Awareness in the Net Centric Battlespace

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: SB052009

    FORCEnet has provided the Navy with unprecedented connectivity, allowing vast amounts of information to flow through the battlespace. This information, however, must be directed and culled in order to be useful. Formalization of best practices is needed in order to leverage the information quickly and effectively. Here we propose to apply The Discovery MachineT (TDM) and its associated meth ...

  8. Computer Integrated Dynamic Scalpel (CIDS)

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: SB052008

    Qortek in collaboration with Penn State - Hershey Medical School and Verefi Technologies, a surgical simulation tool provider, proposes computer Integrated Dynamic Scalpel (CIDS) that allows recording of surgeons' endoscope motion during a surgical procedure. The dynamic scalpel comprises various smart sensors embedded for real-time displacement, gyroscopic and acceleration measurements, which ar ...

  9. Wide Field of View Electronically Stearable Imaging Sensors

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: ST051004

    The proposed project will develop the revolutionary solid-state gimbal system, using three proprietary technologies (ultrasonic motor, piezoelectronics and advanced modeling software) to enable it to be small, lightweight, low power, and with almost no moving parts. The system will still maintain high performance and will provide precision controlled high angular rate motion over a wide acceptance ...

  10. Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate and implement robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low quality video, sensor payload limitations, minimal onboar ...
