Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: Z6.01
Budget: 09/30/16 - 09/29/18

Gradient metal alloy structures possess multi-functional properties that conventional monolithic metal counterparts do not have. Such structures can potentially change the paradigm of material selections and mechanical designs to enable more efficient space vehicles to be built. Existing laser-based additive manufacturing techniques for gradient...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-012
Budget: 08/11/16 - 02/07/17

A bore evacuator is generally used in gun barrel of armored fighting vehicles to help prevent poisonous propellant gases from venting back into the fighting compartment. It consists of a ring of holes drilled into the barrel, surrounded by a cylindrical pressure reservoir. Under typical operating conditions, pitting corrosions and stress corrosi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-026
Budget: 07/31/15 - 04/25/16

ABSTRACT:Cognitive skills/capabilities are important for the military personnel to fulfill tasks and to ensure mission efficiency and success. In the past decade, there are abundant researches suggesting that non-invasive brain stimulation via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) holds great promise to enhance a soldier's cognitiv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.01
Budget: 07/20/15 - 12/17/15

In this proposal, AlphaSense details the development of a novel laser ultrasound visualization system non-destructive evaluations of composite aircraft structures. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) Defect detection and identifications based on direct visualizations of the ultrasound propagation characteristics in the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-192
Budget: 02/03/14 - 11/02/14

In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. details the development of a fully integrated laser ultrasound visualization and laser ablation tool for corrosion identification, removal and cleaning. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) Hidden corrosion detections based on direct visualizations of the ultrasound propagation charact...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-013
Budget: 06/18/13 - 12/15/13

In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. details the development of a novel, low cost and handheld microwave sensor for the detection and evaluation of incipient composite heat damage. The merits of the proposed sensor and its advantages over other techniques are listed below: a) Compact, handheld and low cost, b) Sensitive for incipient heat damage d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19E-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

To ensure safe and reliable power production by nuclear power plants, a wide variety of materials and components need to undergo inspections and maintenances at pre-determined intervals. Condition based maintenance is highly desirable because it can potentially avoid unnecessarily costly maintenance actions and associated error induced failures....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel chemical sensor technology for inline water quality monitoring. Currently, gas chromatography coupled mass spectroscopy is the most widely used technique for water quality analysis; however, the method is costly, time consuming, and can only be performed by we...
