  1. Displays for Avoiding Motion Sickness

    SBC: Virtual I-o            Topic: N/A

    Viewing the horizon is helpful in reducing the symptoms of motion sickness in ship board personnel. Many of a ship's complement are required to constantly monitor visual displays that are fixed to the deck and provide no view of the horizon. Virtual i-O! proposes a research study where horizon information is provided in combination with a visual display mounted on the head. This information ...

  2. A Real-Time, High-Resolution Sensor for Bond Integrity and Thermal Conductivity

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Dense, high-performance electronic systems employ advanced substrate materials, such as ceramics, for maximum heat dissipation. During the fabrication of these ceramic packages various thick-film and thin-film materials are bonded to the substrate and subsequently serve as circuit paths and attachment points for the integrated circuit die. Rapid, high-resolution bond integrity measurements must ...

  3. Thermal-Shock-Resistant Sapphire by Microstructural Design

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed study will evaluate the effectiveness of combining polishing and doping to reduce twin nucleation sites and to prevent twin boundary movement in sapphire to improve its thermal shock resistance. Doped and undoped single-crystal sapphire will be grown by the Czochralski method. The crystal surfaces will be mechanically and chemically polished. Dopant diffusion into the surface l ...

  4. NDI Method for Quantification of Weak Bonding Strength of Composite Structures

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    The development of an intelligent shearography optical inspection system with an innovative and robust excitation technique for detecting weak bonds, delamination, and disbonds in composite materials and structures is proposed. This development will be conducted with the collaboration of Sandia National Laboratories, which manages the Federal Aviation Administration Aging Aircraft NDI Validat ...

  5. Development of a Fiber-Optic Gas Bearing-Balance

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    A one degree of freedom high-frequency aerodynamic bearing-balance will be developed for force, moment, and orientation measurements under non-steady-state flight conditions. A cylindrical bearing-balance three inches in diameter using displacement sensing will be considered as the best candidate for the design. To satisfy the requirement for achieving a natural frequency of 800Hz, the balance m ...

  7. High Repetition Rate Mid-Infrared Laser for IRCM

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A high repetition rate mid infrared laser (3-5 microns) capable of providing multispectral output covering all bands used by infrared missile would make a solid state laser based IRCM system a potentially attractive replacement for black body infrared jammers. We propose a novel laser concept that can provide the desired spectral output at repetition rates exceeding the current state-of-the-art. W ...

    SBC: C-K Technologies L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will develop an advanced control system (software and related hardware) and adapt this control system to a well developed and commercially available honing machine. The resultant system will be capable of producing controlled inside cylinder geometries with controlled taper and cylinder size along the length of a cylinder bore on a controlled basis. The desired geometry (diame ...

  10. Advanced Composites Recycling/Reuse Program


    Advanced composites usage has grown ever since their introduction in the l970's. Consequently, a large volume of advanced composites waste has been generated over the years because of the high scrap rate (two-to-one) in composite production. The prevalent method of disposal into landfills is becoming prohibitive due to increased cost, negative public opinion, and legislation. This project will add ...
