30 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Delaware

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T019
Budget: 08/15/05 - 02/11/06

A fiber optic grating structural integrity measurement system is proposed. It has a sensor suite that combines multi-parameter fiber grating strain, temperature, humidity/moisture and UV sensors. These Blue Road Research embedded fiber grating sensors will be monitored in test composite coupons and their output linked to composite models devel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-136
Budget: 03/25/05 - 03/25/06

A system based on multiparameter fiber optic grating sensors is proposed that is capable of measuring multi-axis strain, pressure and temperature and axial strain and temperature simultaneously. These capabilities enable a system that is uniquely qualified to performed damage state analysis on structures.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-111
Budget: 03/07/05 - 09/07/05

Multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors may be used to localize and qualitatively identify the degree of damage in composite parts. Signatures associated with delaminations and damage tow material are significantly different for strain imaging produced data. This Phase I project is directed toward improving the quantitative measurement capabil...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD04-C14
Budget: 12/13/04 - 06/13/05

This proposal develops an extremely low cost fiber grating corrosion sensor system that could be deployed on a vehicle. Costs are estimated to be approximately $0.25 per sensor in volume allowing hundreds to be deployed if necessary on difficult to access areas of a ground vehicle. In order to keep costs to an absolute minimum it is anitipated...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-214
Budget: 11/07/03 - 05/05/04

Multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors have the ability to measure three dimensional strain and may be wavelength division multiplexed. This proposal describes means to multiplex a 6 by 8 array of multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors using a high speed tunable system that allows measurements of shock and vibration to be made to support heal...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-166
Budget: 11/04/03 - 12/31/05

This Phase II effort develops fiber grating sensors to measure transverse strain/pressure, shear strain, and temperature, in the vicinity of the bond line. Methods are developed to support ingress/egress from tactical rocket motors of fiber grating sensor arrays. Related testing of fiber grating strain sensors are performed using known and con...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Delaware

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00T002
Budget: 10/09/02 - 10/09/03

This Phase II proposal uses multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors to characterize strain fields interior to complex composite materials. Advantages of this approach include the ability to measure transverse strain, transverse strain gradients and axial strain simultaneously at multiple points along a single fiber line. Models and software wi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD01-CBM04
Budget: 09/18/02 - 09/18/04

Blue Road Research intends to extend the use of both high reflectivity, wavelength multiplexed grating sensors and low reflectivity, interferometrically multiplexed grating sensors to measure multi-dimensional strain fields in bonded joints in aerospace structures, and use this strain field information to monitor structural integrity over the ve...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-141
Budget: 08/08/02 - 08/08/04

Single and multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors were used to detect damage in a Phase I composite cryogenic tank. Acoustic signatures were collected from multiple fiber grating sensors during impact. Multi-dimensional strain field measures were used to measure damage remotely through three cryogenic cycles. The first cycle occurred prior t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-193
Budget: 07/15/02 - 10/15/04

Single and multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors were used to detect delaminations and cut tow damage sites in composite motor casings during Phase I of this program. Acoustic signatures were collected from multiple fiber grating sensors during impact and pressure cycling of the Phase I test article. Multi-dimensional strain field measures w...
