  1. Concurrent Clarification and Biological Nitrification/Denitrification in a Single Floating Bead Bioclarifier to Simplify Nitrogen Management in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 816

    Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to balance the increasing demand for high-quality seafood products with the harvest capacity of our nation¿s oceans. However, water reuse in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is limited by the accumulation of nitrate (NO3), which is toxic to many species in high concentrations. Therefore, NO3 removal by denitrification presents a press ...

  5. SPEAR (Search Planner with Environmentally Adaptive Response)

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N05044

    Since the Second World War, increased performance has been acquired by investing heavily in expensive new sensor hardware, including advanced off-board sensors, at the near exclusion of developing new algorithms and tactics to optimize use of sensors in complex environments. The shift toward threats in just such hostile areas demands a more synergistic approach wherein new sensors breed new tacti ...

  6. Low-Cost Wave Data Buoys for Offshore Monitoring

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 837

    Ocean waves are well-known to be the most hazardous of ocean environmental conditions affecting vessel operations. The vast majority of incidents responded to by the U.S. Coast Guard, injuries and fatalities, and damage to or sinking of vessels (particularly small craft) are wave-related. Recognizing the considerable spatial and temporal variability of waves in coastal areas, research will desig ...

  7. Prognostic Wear Prediction Tool for BlackHawk Hanger Bearings

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: A04077

    Hanger bearing failures occur unexpectedly and have resulted in loss of aircraft and life in both military and civilian rotorcraft. New Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) that are currently being demonstrated on the UH-60 include sensing capabilities that offer the potential to diagnose and predict hanger bearing problems with sufficient lead time to prevent catastrophic failure. However, ...

  8. Methodology for the Real-Time Management of Aero Gas Turbine Engine Usage Data

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: AF05188

    Modern turbine engine lifing approaches compute damage accumulation in real time based on actual usage, substantially increasing the useable life over a-priori cycle or hour limits based on assumed worst-case operating conditions. However, these new algorithms are complex, consume substantial computing resources, and generate enormous amounts of data that must be archived to allow data mining and/ ...

  9. Embedded Health Monitoring for Propulsion Control System Actuators

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N05094

    The latent degradation of precision control system actuators affects dynamic performance and can push the performance characteristics of the actuator out of the regime needed for stable operation of the aircraft control system. Current system-level methods are not sensitive enough to actuator degradation and have no ability to isolate the fault to a specific sub-component or provide an estimate o ...

  10. Effective Diagnostics for Dynamic Operating Environments

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N05104

    Fault detection and isolation algorithms are often developed with data from steady-state tests, and many algorithms perform well under these controlled conditions. However, when diagnostics are used in highly dynamic environments, sensitivities to changing loads or speeds become apparent. Vibration metrics tend to be particularly susceptible to operating condition variations. This sensitivity inte ...
