  1. Rapid Additive Manufacturing of Very Low Cost 3-Dimensional Titanium Alloy Components

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: DLA10001

    The designers, manufacturers, and end users of metal components are increasingly turning to titanium (Ti) alloys, which can provide a substantial increase in performance. However, for most of these applications, the cost of Ti components is prohibitively high. The cost of Ti sponge powder is still a small portion (e.g. 5%) of the final Ti64 component cost. The predominant cause of the high cost ...

  2. Comprehensive Latency Mitigation in EOIR Sensor Controls

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A11072

    In Phase I, Kutta hypothesized multiple Latency Improvement Algorithms (LIAs) for the control of Electro-Optical and Infrared payloads onboard Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Through an extensive human factors study within a representative simulated environment, Kuttas researchers proved their hypotheses and, in many cases, saw a 50% or more improvement in effectiveness among the participants. In Phase ...
