  2. Optimized High Performance Stainless Steel Powder for Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing (AM)

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N16AT007

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) promises to be an innovative technology that can enable rapid manufacturing of complex parts at greatly reduced cycle time. With the maturation of selective laser melting (SLM) AM technologies there is increasing interest in applying this manufacturing method to the production of aircraft structural components, many of which are made of high-strength stainless steels. H ...

  3. III-Nitride Based Compact 320-355 nm UV Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N161005

    Existing ultraviolet laser diodes with wavelengths much shorter than 355 nm suffer from poor performance. This is partially due to limited research in this area, but a large part is also due to material and processing issues unique to deep UV lasers. New approaches to achieving III-Nitride UV lasers at wavelengths shorter than 355nm are needed to meet the Navys ambitious goals of having 1 W of CW ...

  4. High Load Roller Bearing (HLRB)

    SBC: Hy-Tek Manufacturing Co. Inc.            Topic: N111047

    HMCs approach to Phase I HLRB roller bearing design was to achieve separation of the radial and axial functions of the bearing so as to enable axial bearing movement independent of bearing rotation. HMCs rationale for this approach was that the delineation of axial and radial loads will ensure that each load bearing member can withstand the static and dynamic force vectors to which it will be expo ...

  5. Low-Cost-By-Design Widely Tunable Mid-Wave Infrared Surface Emitting Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N151023

    The functionality of widely tunable sampled grating mid-infrared lasers will be enhanced through the development of surface emission. This technology provides fast, non-mechanical tuning in the mid-infrared spectral range. The proposed research will investigate the feasibility of integrating a 45 degree facet with the sampled grating distributed feedback quantum cascade laser in order to simultane ...

  6. Development of 7050 T-74 Aluminum Alloy Alternative for use in Additive Manufacturing (AM) Systems

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N151010

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) promises to be an innovative technology that can enable rapid manufacturing of complex parts at greatly reduced cycle time. Application of this technology to the manufacture of aircraft structural components is limited by the lack of high-strength aluminum alloys optimized for AM processing. In this Phase I SBIR program, QuesTek Innovations, a leader in the field of int ...

  7. Thermal Management System Toolkit for Naval Warfare Applications

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: N152115

    CU Aerospace (CUA), teamed with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), proposes to research, develop, and demonstrate thermal management simulation tools for next-generation two-phase cooling systems designed for transient high heat-flux naval applications. The software developed in this program can be used to evaluate advanced thermal management designs for critical emerging naval ...

  8. Computational Design and Development of Advanced Stainless Steel for Aircraft Engine and Lift Fan Gearbox Bearings

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N121022

    The overall goal of the Phase II program is to move QuesTeks new stainless bearing steel alloy development efforts from the Phase I prototype scale, to intermediate- and full-scale alloy production. The Phase II program will culminate with a demonstration of the new alloys properties at full (production) scale, with data suitable for alloy qualification and specification development.

  10. Sonobuoy Electronic Function Selector (EFS) Replacement


    Present sonobuoys allow for the selection of functions such as RF Channel, Depth, etc. by use of a single selector button and LED display along with a second button used for verification located on the side of the sonobuoy. Selection or verification requires access to the buttons and cannot be accomplished once the sonobuoy is loaded into the launcher. The capability to select and verify functions ...
