  1. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  2. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    The Army needs low-power, lightweight processing for devices carried by the soldier and also for those left as unattended sensors in the field. These applications need to perform complex tasks over long periods of time, but a reliance on heavy batteries s

  4. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...

  5. A novel dual wavelength optical beam attenuation meter for automated underwater vehicles

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    "The development of a robust, compact dual-wavelength optical beamattenuation meter termed the SAM (Scattering Attenuation Meter)is proposed. The sensor is designed for observing platforms thatrequire very small form factors such as the REMUS AUV. The devicewill have a flat sensing face exposed to the water with a coppershutter to avoid biofouling. No cleaning or maintenance will berequired for ...

  7. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  10. A Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...
