In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser UltrasonicsSBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: N15AT008
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
High Fidelity Rotorcraft Towing Modeling and Simulation with Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection SystemSBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: N15AT009
Towing of a Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) system is an important aspect of rotorcraft maritime operation in support of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW). The vibratory rotary wing platform combined with the long and flexible towing cable, the low mass ratio of the towed body to the total mass (the sum of the tow body and the towing aircraft), and the rotor downwash impingement on the towed body duri ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
In situ NDI and correction of the AM process with laser SAW and heterodyne detectionSBC: POLARONYX INC Topic: N15AT008
This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an unprecedented NDI tool to support laser additive manufacturing of metal parts by using fiber laser SAW and heterodyne detection. It is the enabling technology for real time characterize the AM parts in terms of temperature, cooling rate, grain structure, and defects. A proof of concept demonstration will be carried out at the end of Phase 1.Prototypes wi ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Robust Mission and Safety Critical Li-Ion BMS for Aerospace ApplicationsSBC: Space Information Laboratories, LLC Topic: N15AT001
Space Information Labs (SIL) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) have teamed to provide Navy an innovative, but also producible, approach to a robust mission and safety critical Li-Ion battery man-agement system across Navy platforms to include aircraft, helicopters, UAS, missiles and directed energy weapons. SILs modular and scalable Li-Ion Intelli-Pack battery system will be designed to fro ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Improved Turbulence Modelling Across Disparate Length Scales for Naval Computational Fluid Dynamics ApplicationsSBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC Topic: N15AT002
Computational Sciences LLC will collaborate with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to develop and validate a stand-alone computational module that naturally accounts for the effects of turbulence. Such fluctuations and transitions may be associated with compressible flows and boundary layer interactions. The module will be designed for implementation in to existing legacy codes for use in ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Grid-Spacing-Independent and Discretization-Order-Independent Simulation for Naval Single-Phase and Two-Phase Flow ApplicationsSBC: Kord Technologies, Inc. Topic: N15AT002
Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving method and a new approach to LES turbulence modeling ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Innovative Physics-based Modeling Tool for Application to Passive Radio Frequency Identification System on RotorcraftSBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS INC Topic: N15AT005
We propose development of a software capability which, based on use of MathSysaccurate and efficient exact-physics computational electromagnetics (CEM) solvers, will enable modeling and optimization of the properties of on-platform pRFID tag/reader antenna systems. Passive Radio Frequency Identification devices (pRFID) mounted on complex rotorcrafts pose challenging modeling problems: since pRFID ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
