Air Cycle Machine Low Friction, Medium Temperature, Foil Bearing CoatingSBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N16AT005
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser UltrasonicsSBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS INC Topic: N15AT008
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Data Driven Intent Recognition FrameworkSBC: OTHER LAB, INC. Topic: NSF13599
A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear Protection of Military Aircraft and Weapon SystemsSBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF15AT31
Coating materials and coating methods used to protect U.S. military aircraft and weapon systems from corrosion and wear are in need of environmentally benign alternatives in order to keep up with dynamic regulations associated with environment, safety, and occupational health. Thus, the Air Force is supporting research to develop alternatives to the dangerous materials identified on the OSD Emergi ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Energy Harvesting FabricSBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC Topic: A15AT017
A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
