  1. Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection of Fastener Holes in Two-Layer Structures

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Nondestructive inspection is a key component of programs aimed at extending the service life of aging aircraft. One important capability is the detection of cracking and corrosion around fastener holes. In thick, multiple layer structures, there is oftenno solution but removal of the fasteners for inspection, a costly and potentially damaging process. Phased array ultrasonics offer a novel and ...

  3. High speed low loss optical switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This program addresses the development of a solid-state optical switching technology. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Sub-microsecond andmultiple-port fiber switches of low loss and low cost are long sought after performance attributes. This type of high performance optical switches is i ...

  4. Network Application of Piezo-Crystal

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in the information super-highway and modern defense systems. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and highreliability. Based on a successful phase I program, Agiltron Corporation proposes to further develop a novel solid-state 4x4 cross-connect swit ...

  5. CZT ARrays for Ultra-fast X-ray Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Cadmium zinc telluride is the room temperature detector of choice for non-destructive imaging applications. Monolithic CZT arrays with high count-rate capability (>1e+6 cps/pixel) are required for ultra-fast hyperspectral x-ray imaging. Presently, theyield of CZT detector arrays that can perform hyperspectral imaging (in milliseconds) is low. Most monolithic arrays suffer from "polarization" w ...

  10. Model-Based Fusion of Multiple Look SAR for Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "In our Phase I study we developed and evaluated several initial approaches to fusing multiple-looks for SAR combat ID. Extensive evaluation of decision-level multi-look fusion showed there were significant performance benefits compared with single lookID. In Phase I of this SBIR, we developed and tested an initial, aspect-constrained hypothesis-level fusion, where pose parameters become part of ...
