  1. Reactor for Control of Fugitive Emissions of Toxic Gases

    SBC: Coyote Aerospace/high Mesa            Topic: N/A

    A need to control the fugitive emissions of hazardous vapors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) has been identified in operations at Army plants and depots. The High Mesa Technologies (HMT)/Coyote Aerospace team proposes to meet this need using proven silent discharge plasma (SDP) techniques, developed by the Electric Power Research Institute and Los Alamos Nat ...

  2. Coaxial Optimal Electric Servo-Actuator

    SBC: Diversified Technology (old:            Topic: N/A

    COESA (Coaxial, optimal electric, servo-actuator) is an actuation system for helicopter rotor blade trailing edge control surfaces, comprised of 3 major subsystem: the electromagnetic Coaxial Linear Actuator (EMCL), pulse width modulated supply, and piston control feedback system. The requirement of helicopter rotor blade control is a difficult problem cause of the constraints imposed by the main ...

  3. Advanced Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery

    SBC: Mobile Energy Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many DOD systems employ rechargeable batteries to supply power. Battery weight, volume, cycle life and cost are generally limited considerations in enabling satisfactory mission performance. Systems presently utilize Lead-Acid, Nickel-Cadmium, Nickel-Metal Hydride or Lithium-Iobatteries. The Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MN) system is now under study as a superior candidate for many applications. El ...

  4. Filled/Reinforced Elastomers as Erosion Protection Materials for Rotor Blades- New Resin Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The recent experience during Desert Storm operations showed serious deficiencies in the use of exiting erosion protection systems in the helicopter rotor blades. The sand and rain erosions on the blade leading edges resulted in severe damages requiring extensive and frequent repairs. The contractor proposes to incorporate various fibers and self-lubricating powders into liquid castable polyureth ...

  5. Honeycomb Structural Sealants-New Sealer Coatings

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Water leakage and entrapment is a common problem for helicopters honeycomb composite structures. Reports from Army repair depots indicated that about 20% of the CH47(Chinook) blades returned for service had water trapped in 3,000 - 5,000 honeycomb cells. Problems are also present in Blackhawk, Cobra, and Heuey helicopters. Micro cracks in the composite skin are believed to be the main cause of ...

  6. Exploiting Artificial Intelligence to Improve After Action Reviews for the Digitized Company Team

    SBC: Lb&m Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) after-action review (AAR) system produces a standard set of statistical displays that trainers may use to debrief exercise participants. These displays are difficult to interpret and do not readily reveal to the player unit "WHAT happened" during the battle. If unit players are able to discern "WHAT happened", there are no correlating displays to provide ...

  7. Heterostructure Acoustic Charge Transport (HACT) Spatial Light Modulators (SLMs) for 3-D Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal focuses on the development of heterostructure acoustic charge transport (HACT) Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) structures, which potentially address a larger number of pixels with substantially fewer interconnects, as input and output devices for a 3-D volume optical memory. Unlike other types of SLMs, HACT addressing of a 10(6) pixel array requires only 3x1024 interconnects in place ...

  8. Advanced Armor Vehicle Design

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    This project applies a combination of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and CAD software to the problem of optimum armor design. Previous work for TACOM has established the efficacy of ANN/GA as applied to the problem of 1-D armor design. This new work will extend the concept to full 3-D vehicle geometries (CAD models). The CAD part of the code will handle the 3D data d ...

  9. Automated Broadband Acoustic Sound Velocity Profiler

    SBC: Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc. (SciFish) recently completed a Phase I SBIR that used neural networks to learn the relationship between temperature and the spectra of broadband returns for a fixed location during a fixed time of the year. This approach relaxes the assumption of the consistency of backscatterers: now we will assume that the backscatter will be consistent at the same location at ...

  10. An Inlet Particle Separator Design System


    Development of a three-dimensional p article trajectory analysis for inlet particle separators is proposed by combining a continuum flow Navier-Stokes analysis capable of simulating flow in an installed inlet with a three-dimensional Lagrangian based particle tracking analysis. Both components represent state-of-the-art technology and their combination would provide a much improved approach capa ...
