  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 ...

  2. Development of a Commercial Multiple Degree of Freedom Measurement System

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

    The Multiple Degree of Freedom Measurement (MDFM) System, developed under Wright Laboratory, has been identified as having strong commercial potential as a significant enhancement to existing products in the machine tool industry for machine tool calibration or coordinate measuring machine enhancement. The MDFM is in need of revision to incorporate state-of-the-art technology, to prepare the devi ...

  5. Adaptive Data Compression for Efficient File Transport Over Wireless Networks

    SBC: Artery Communication            Topic: N/A

    Because of the scarce network bandwidth available on the wireless links, data compression plays a critical role in the wireless system design. We propose to evaluate existing public-domain and commercial lossless data compression packages in the context of wireless networking. The specific criteria used include compression efficiency, compression speed, memory usage, and ease of being incorporat ...

  6. Ultra-Textured Active polymer (UTAP) Composite for High-Performance Intelligent Acoustic Transducers

    SBC: Ceramare Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project seeks to combine the enhanced piezoelectric properties of single crystal perovskite ferroelectrics, recently discovered at Pennsylvania State University, with the electrostrictive properties of polyurethane to make a new class of "smart" materials for acoustic transducers. A tape casting process is used to form composite sheets compromising ...

  7. An Advanced Aerodynamic Module for Flight Simulation Including Unsteady Aerodynamics and Wake Distortion Effects

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An improved computer module for representing rotor flow field effects on flight dynamics response is proposed for development. This model extends finite-state dynamic inflow models to address current limitations in predicting rotorcraft off-axis response to control inputs. The software module also includes features for representing rotor operation in the vortex ring state. The model is novel ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
