  5. Multi-Modal Hole Inspection Using Eddy Current Arrays and Surface Topology Imaging

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: A16012

    Nondestructive evaluation of internal surfaces of holes or pipes in steel structures, such as evacuator holes in gun tubes, for the presence of surface flaws such as stress corrosion pits and cracks is a difficult task, particularly when the internal space is small, the structure is large and rapid inspection with high precision is desired. The process is further complicated by the presence of sur ...

  6. Innovative, shock-load resistant Pulsed Power supply.

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A16015

    Several future weapons, including Railgun, and other directed energy systems rely on pulsed electrical power to deliver energy to the target. Pulsed power increases the performance, accuracy, and repeatability of Electrothermal Ignition (ETI) projectiles by delivering precisely-timed, powerful ignition pulses to high-energy, propellants. Electrothermal Ignition has been demonstrated with ETI Pulse ...

  7. Development of a Non-Contact Transmission for Helicopter Applications


    The US Army desires a solution to eliminate mechanical toothed gears and ball bearing contacts within the helicopter transmission to eliminate lubrication loss related catastrophic failures. Vishwa Robotics proposes a magnetically levitated gear box for rotor craft that results in simplification of the overall structure with substantial reduction in GTOW by elimination lubrication package. Elimina ...
