  1. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  3. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  4. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  5. Optical Fiber-Based Corrosion System Using Electrochemically Active Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to address the high service costs of the current U.S. Navy fleet of aircraft by developing a distributed optical fiber sensor system that will help reduce the costs associated with corrosion damage and extend the lifetime of existing aircraft. Annual corrosion of Navy metallic structures has been estimated as high as $1 billion. Additional costs aris ...

  6. Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, we describe a novel approach for realizing a parallel, nonmechical, read/write interconnection for angle-multiplexed three-dimensional (3-D) optical memories. Our concept represents a significant first step required toward taking this critical memory technology from the laboratory and inserting it into operational systems. The concept utilizes novel optomechanical packaging and ...

  7. Representation and Transmission of Non-Visual Stimuli Using the HLA

    SBC: Mystech Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This effort will develop an HLA compliant representation of non-visual stimuli with the intention of utilizing the models developed in Phase I effort to provide data for "human" mannequin stimulation in Phase II. The Phase II goal is to have the mannequin respon in a physiologically realistic manner to the non-visual stimuli data that will be passed to it over a network and via an interface. Suc ...

  8. Commercialization of C4I Simulation Components for Disaster Planning and Recovery Using HLA

    SBC: Mystech Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Federal, state, local, and military missions for Disaster Relief, Emergency Action, and Humanitarian Assistance (DREAHA) require all of the traditional command, control, communications, computer and intelligence (C4I) functions used by military units for traditional warfare. New civilian systems that leverage and reuse military C4I systems to plan, prepare, identify, vector, monitor, and recover ...

  9. HLA Federation Implementation Tools

    SBC: SYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Developing a set of tools that is automated, integrated, and compliant with the deired goals of this SBIR is not a simple task. If a coordinated approach is not taken from the start, then a hodgepodge of tools and capabilities for a hodgepodge of environments wil be developed with unwanted outcome of falling short of the desired goals. Therefore, SYNETICS proposes to establish a CASE-like enviro ...

  10. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...
