Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-133
Budget: 10/28/11 - 04/28/12

The use of Spread Spectrum Time Domain Reflectometry (SSTDR) that has already been proven in aerospace applications will be adapted and optimized for detection and location of wiring faults in shipboard systems. SSTDR is the only technology that allows MCS fault detection and isolation, on fully powered systems without taking the console offline...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-113
Budget: 09/16/11 - 12/19/13

ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of ex...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-113
Budget: 06/15/09 - 03/17/10

The objective of this proposal is to develop a feasible design for intermittent electrical fault detection and location for a weapons system using analog S/SSTDR for continual monitoring. We have already demonstrated the feasibility of the basic S/SSTDR technology for live aircraft in flight where analog real-time, randomly occurring, anomalous ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-022
Budget: 04/01/05 - 10/03/05

LiveWire Test Labs, Inc., in cooperation with the Center of Excellence for Smart Sensors at the University of Utah is working towards the full development of "smart connectors" and smart circuit breakers that can locate faults on live wires in flight. These faults are typically too small to locate on the ground or any time other than when they a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-153
Budget: 03/02/05 - 05/02/09

Aging aircraft wiring has been identified as an area of critical national concern, due to safety problems, maintenance expense, and lost mission capable time. The objective of this proposal is to create and deploy a wire fault location system for aging aircraft utilizing spread spectrum sensing methods. This project will develop a Wiring In Lin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-260
Budget: 12/27/04 - 06/27/05

The objective of this proposal is to develop and integrate an Embedded Smart Connector (SC) with wire diagnostic technology that can be temporarily or permanently installed into the aircraft wiring system to report the health of the vehicle wiring. This smart connector can be used to detect and locate in-flight anomalies. It can also be used t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-153
Budget: 03/19/04 - 12/19/04

The objective of this proposal is to create and deploy a complete in situ wire fault location system for aging aircraft utilizing low power spread spectrum sensing methods. These methods have been demonstrated for accurate fault location on wires carrying power or digital data signals. This method is highly accurate despite noise caused by the...
