  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  2. Aircraft High-Power Semiconductor Line Contactors

    SBC: HIGHER POWER ENGINEERING            Topic: N05015

    Proposal to access modification of current static transfer switch (STS) product technology for military aircraft operation. High-speed STS in the 120/208 voltage range have been available for government use for several years. However these 60Hz switches will require significant control and packaging modifications for military aircraft installation. Higher Power Engineering (HPE) has significant ...

  3. Automatic Three-Dimensional (3-D) Target Template Generation

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N05017

    The US Navy seeks improved capabilities to generate automatically 3-D target template data in support of the Tomahawk Cruise Missile Program. Our collective approach herein is divided between: (1) feature generation using enhancements to the IAVO TrueDEM DEM extraction tool and (2) a new high-level system called TrueTemplate that automatically builds 3-D target templates from the TrueDEM feature ...

  5. Automated Mine Neutralization Vehicle

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N05128

    We propose a small expendable neutralizer (XN) UUV capable of autonomously neutralizing proud and volume mines. XN will be compatible with legacy launchers and readily deployed from submerged, surface or air platforms. It will be capable of long range submerged deployment, as well as persistent station keeping. It will employ low cost/power guidance and control technology, yet home precisely. ...

  6. Small Low Cost Marker for Littoral Mine Neutralization

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N04201

    We propose a systems analysis and proof of concept design for a low cost mine marker that can keep station for a week or more, even in high energy environments, to broadcast on command sonar homing signals that enable long range detection and accurate terminal navigation by a low capability mine neutralizing UUV to its intended target. The device will be small and readily placed, it will be a phy ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Innovative Materials/Concepts for Grease Lubricated Bearings

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N05089

    Grease lubricated bearings are widely used in aircraft for driveshaft support, fans, and accessories. These components are a maintenance intensive item requiring regular replenishment or replacement. In addition, occasional failures occur and have resulted in loss of aircraft. Sentient Corporation, in collaboration with SKF/MRC bearings and Sikorsky Aircraft, will study and address the dominant fa ...

  10. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...
