  1. Nonlinear Dynamic Control of Advanced Electric Power Systems

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Development and simulation is proposed of a control system for multi-input, multi-output nonlinear dynamic power systems. The overall goal will be development of a reliable and survivable power system with optimized steady-state operation, stable and controlled transition between states as a result of a deliberate perturbation, and rapid restoration of electric power after a precipitate pertu ...

  2. Wire Bonding Interconnects for High Temperature SiC Electronics

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller proposes to develop three new bond wire alloys for use with SiC intergrated circuits operating at temperatures as high as 500 deg C. These alloys will serve as alternatives to aluminum and gold bond-wire, which are unreliable at high temperatures. The alloys will be resistant to creep, corrosion, oxidation, and thermal fatigue. The wire will also be engineered to be easily dra ...

  3. DOPED PSN.91-PT.09 ELECTROSTRICTIVE SINGLE CRYSTALS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Requirements for high quality electrostrictive single crystals continue to be important because the polycrystalline PSN-PT materials have a lower coupling coefficient . Single crystal PSN-PT is an attractive transducer material because of its very high energy density and its capacity to undergo large electrostrictive strains. Foster-Miller has conceived of an innovative approach to grow PSN.91- ...

  4. NDE of Marcelling in Composites

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller is proposing a novel NDE approach, Time Reversal Mirror (TRM) technology, for the detection of marcelling in thick fiber-reinforced composite structures. TRM is an ultrasonic inspection phased-array technique that will inspect composite structural components for anomalies faster, deeper, and with more sensitivity than competing technologies. TRM is valuable in areas where existing c ...

  5. Innovative Zero Emission Exhaust Gas Treatment for Mobile Solar Detoxification Facility

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Destruction by incineration is the only permanent means of disposing of many hazardous wastes. However, conventional incinerators are not well received by the public due to concerns regarding products of incomplete combustion (PICs) including dioxins and furans in the emissions. Solar detoxification by photothermal oxidation offers an attractive alternative with the potential for greater destruc ...

  6. Increased Stiffener Pull-Off Strength Through Enhanced 2D to 3D Joints

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The design and development of a co-cured stiffened skin structure with high strength stiffener to skin joints without the requirement of fasteners is a goal of aircraft designers. Foster-Miller has developed enabling technology that will help designers achieve this goal and to fully realize the potential of advanced composites in airframe design. Lockheed Martin Tactical Aircraft Systems and Foste ...

  7. Novel Method for Inspection of Aircraft Retread Tire Casings

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For economic reasons, aircraft tires are retreaded and reused several times during their lifetimes. Due to aviation safety concerns, tire casings to be retreaded must undergo thorough inspection. Numerous methods currently exist to perform this inspection; all suffer from one drawback or another. In this proposed Phase I effort, Foster-Miller will develop a low cost inspection method which elim ...

  8. Dielectric Mix Ratio Sensor

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the application of the Advanced Special Hull Treatment on submarines, two chemical components are mixed in a desired ratio to obtain a cured polymer. The purpose of this Phase I SBIR program is to establish conditions for maximizing the sensitivity of dielectric measurements to mix ratio for the eventual development of an in-line, real-time dielectric mix ratio sensor, allowing for real-time c ...

  9. Doped PMN-PT Single Crystals

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Requirements for high quality electrostrictive single crystals continue to be important because the polycrystalline PMN-PT materials, have a lower coupling coefficient . Single crystal PMN-PT doped with lanthanum or barium is an attractive transducer material because of its very high energy density and its capacity to undergo large electrostrictive strains. Foster-Miller has conceived of an inn ...

  10. Improved Water Barriers for Outboard Electrical Cables

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Navy uses a wide variety of cables to provide power and control signals to shipboard systems. The Vertical Launch System (VLS) uses cables containing between 3 and 85 conductors. These cables must withstand the underwater environment and be resistant to mechanical damage when passing through ballast tank penetrators. Current cable jacket materials either lack toughness or have insufficient ...
