  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. Shipboard Chem-Bio Agent Spread Modeling for Damage Control

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N05050

    The overall objective of this project is to develop a system-level prognostic modeling tool for predictions of the spread of chemical/biological agents in shipboard air systems. The intent is to integrate the tool with existing DC systems. The proposed system will be modeled as a set of interacting software components coupled through a simulation environment. To achieve execution speed and accurac ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. Modular `Smart Dust' Prognostics and Diagnostics System

    SBC: MORGAN RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N04197

    An increasing amount of effort and interest is being expended on development activities incorporating embedded sensors within complex systems for the purpose of collecting data for system-related diagnosis and prognosis activities. Collected data would then be transmitted to an external collection system and used to determine optimal maintenance procedures, to warn of an impending failure, to unde ...

  9. 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. ...

  10. 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 ...
