Maintenance/ Monitoring Support Information Tools

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-060
Budget: 03/02/06 - 09/03/06
PI: Mr. Ben Caldwell

In this project, we propose to make a handheld tool that supports the maintenance engineer in evaluating the health of equipment or evaluating the scenarios available form sensor data. The unit will be based on a monitoring node with an additional GUI (Graphical User Interface) and firmware to make interaction simple and instantaneous. The prop...

Data Mining for Integrated Structural Health Management of Missiles

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-145
Budget: 01/17/06 - 07/31/06
PI: Mr. Benjamin Caldwell

In this project we propose to make a unique and complete data mining system, specifically developed for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Even more particular about the system is the way it is aimed at vehicles and other structures that form fleets as they are procured in the Army. In the project the integrity of the data is weighted to be a...

Three Dimensional Imaging for Missile Damage Assessment

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-143
Budget: 01/09/06 - 07/30/06
PI: Mr. Benjamin Caldwell

A three-dimensional diagnostic/prognostic imaging system that is specifically designed for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is proposed. Core to the system under development is attention to the data that is produced, and ensuring that it is optimized for the purpose of prognostics. To this aim as much attention is paid to the system that col...

MEMS Applications for Automotive Diagnostics

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-236
Budget: 12/05/03 - 12/05/05
PI: Dr. Trevor Niblock

The problem that the proposed device/system addresses is the real time in-cylinder pressure and temperature measurement of internal combustion engines. The concept presented is for a multi-task sensor produced using MEMS technology that fits in the cylinder head adjacent to the gasket with its sensing element exposed in the cylinder to the combu...

MEMS Sensors For In-situ Monitoring of Adhesive Bonded Composite Structures

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-172
Budget: 05/11/01 - 05/11/03
PI: Kris Vossough

The problem addressed is through-life non-destructive monitoring of adhesively bonded structures. The concept presented is to produce a "smart material" consisting of a number of small independent Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) adhesive bond degradation and strain gauge sensors positioned in the bondline and externally mounted. These ...
