  1. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  5. Plasma Surface Engineering for Bearing Wear and Corrosion Prevention in Advanced Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: ARCOMAC SURFACE ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF05181

    Current engine bearing lubrication technology begins to break down at the high rotation speeds, loads and temperatures required for advanced fighter engines. Furthermore, in combat operation bearings may have to operate for short periods with no lubrication, and also resist pervasive corrosive environments. In this program the bearing material will be modified to be "slippery", more durable, resi ...

  7. Recognizing Target Variants Using Transformational Adaptivity

    SBC: GENERAL INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: AF05219

    One of the greatest obstacles to robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) is achieving a high level of performance in operating conditions outside those for which the system is designed. The bio-mimetic map-seeking circuit (MSC) has provided remarkably simple solutions to extending operating range for recognizing 3D targets allowing recognition from any viewpoint, tolerating clutter and distract ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Innovative Surface Feature Extraction for Visualization using LIDAR Intensity and Co-registered Optical Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N04245

    Pre-mission rehearsal using 3D, simulated fly throughs derived from remotely sensed data can signicantly enhance warfighter safety and efficiency. Because of its great potential for extracting the location, orientation, identification, and elevation profile of surface features, LIDAR (light ranging and detection) data provide an excellent information base for creating these simulated visualizatio ...

  10. 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 ...
