  1. A Compact, Low Cost, Handheld Sensor for Non- Destructive Material Case Depth Verification

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N102141

    In this SBIR program, AlphaSense, Inc. teamed with the Center for Non-destructive Evaluations at Iowa State University to develop a compact, low cost handheld sensor for non-destructive material case depth verification. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using an alternating current potential drop (ACPD) sensor for non-destructive measurements of case depth. Phase II will be focusing on ...

  3. A Compact, Low-Power, Low Cost Device for Stereoscopic 3D Viewing from a Single Sensor

    SBC: Equinox Corporation            Topic: A06067

    The unique opportunity to solve stereoscopic sensing from a moving single sensor is provided by a combination of recent advances in image processing devices and image stabilization techniques developed by Equinox. These advances will be combined to provide a compact, low-power, low cost device that will support a user interactive interface for setting of the magnitude of the time-slip inter-ocular ...

  4. A Compact, Low-Power, Low Cost Device for Stereoscopic 3D Viewing from a Single Sensor

    SBC: Equinox Corporation            Topic: A06067

    While the traditional approach to collecting video data for stereoscopic display is to use two cameras, it suffers from several drawbacks including excess cost and size, added complexity, and the necessity of careful calibration. Within Phase I, we investigated techniques for collecting stereoscopic data from a single camera, which eliminated the problems associated with the dual-camera configura ...

  5. A Complete Design Environment for Asynchronous Circuits

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Theoretical research on asynchronous circuits has provided top﷓down methods that start from an operational description of a circuit. Top-down methods avoid the difficulty of understanding (let alone verifying) the behavior of compositions ofasynchronous components. In practice, however, design begins from a functional decomposition, often incorporating components previously designed. ATC-NY w ...

  6. A COMPOSITE CERAMIC MATERIAL FOR LOW HEAT REJECTION DIESEL ENGINES

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CERAMICS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE VIABLE ALTERNATIVES IN CONVENTIONAL AND ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINES WITH THE POTENTIAL OF 30% FUEL SAVINGS. THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION TO DEVELOP CERAMICS IN GENERAL AND SPECIFICALLY FOR DIESEL ENGINES. IN AMBITIOUS DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN PROGRAMS TO UTILIZE CERAMICS IN DIESELS, THE LIMITATION OF CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CERAMICS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED. IN META ...

  8. A Comprehensive Rapid-Assessment-of- Flutter/Ejection-Loads (RAFEL) Software System for Aircraft /Store Compatibility

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    For aircraft /store compatibility, a comprehensive software system requested by the Air Force for rapid assessment of flutter and ejection loads (RAFEL) poses challenging requirements. With ZAERO aeroelastic software as a base, ZONA can establish a RAFELsystem satisfying all AF's requirements. Specifically, ZONA will develop RAFEL in Phase I with: a) solution accuracy with flutter solution robustn ...

  9. A Comprehensive, Embedded Vibration Management System for In-Situ Missile Evaluation

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A07023

    In response to SBIR topic A07-023, Impact Technologies, collaborating with Allient Techsystems, Incorporated (ATK), proposes to develop and demonstrate a modular embedded vibration management platform for the collection, signal processing, real-time analysis, and reduction of vibration data. The proposed asset-mounted sensor will be capable of long term autonomous collection and analysis of vibrat ...

  10. A Computational Tool for Modeling Geometric Proximity of Independent Systems

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: AF083268

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an accurate viscous CFD algorithm which can include various small gaps between both static and moving components into the analysis. It is not an easy task to model those small gaps in the current CFD codes due to the geometric proximity, especially for moving components. However, those small gaps may have a significant impact on the aerodynamic, aeroel ...
