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
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
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
Precision Optical Navigation Guidance System (PRONG)SBC: FOMS INC. Topic: N15AT014
FOMS Inc. and University of Southern California propose to develop the PRecision Optical Navigation Guidance (PRONG) system to provide continuous, high quality range and bearing data to fixed wing aircraft during landing approach to an aircraft carrier. The PRONG system uses infrared optical communications with advanced modulation and coding to measure range between ship and aircraft with accuracy ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control ConditionsSBC: SA Photonics, Inc. Topic: N15AT014
This proposal describes an all optical fixed wing landing system for a aircraft carrier capable of flying an aircraft all the way to landing in a RF denied environment. The precision, reliability and accuracy of this system will allow control the aircraft without the help from the pilot all the way to touch down. It will work seamlessly with UAVs and manned aircraft that have been retrofitted with ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy

Phase Ii will expand on Phase I results, conclusions & recommendations. Emphasis will be on testing ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under UncertaintySBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC. Topic: N13AT020
Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
