Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-057
Budget: 04/12/06 - 05/12/08

The noise levels on an aircraft carrier flight deck can approach 150 dB, an environment in which personnel must work, communicate, and avoid danger. The attenuation required cannot be achieved by passive or active means alone, so they must be combined. Achieving high levels of attenuation by passive means requires the use of a deep insert earp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-148
Budget: 12/21/05 - 12/21/07

Troops entering unknown passages such as tunnels, caves or sewer pipes would benefit from knowing something about its geometry. This project aims at providing a system that reveals the geometry of such passages before the troops have to enter the passage. Sound is projected into the passage and the reflected waves are recorded and processed. The...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Boston University

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T025
Budget: 08/10/05 - 02/09/06

Knowing the kind(s) of machinery and equipment contained in a building and its location prior to having to enter the building is a valuable asset to military operations, particularly in urban situations. The proposed system, called BIMLI (Building Interrogation and Machinery Location and Identification), will consist of a sensor suite, a struct...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-057
Budget: 04/22/05 - 01/22/06

Communication and ear protection in an extremely noisy environment has been aided by the development of noise reduction headsets that employ active feedback between a loudspeaker and microphone, both located within the headset. But externally worn muffs can be dislodged, imperfectly worn, and subject to sound leakage. In addition, their passive ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-148
Budget: 12/30/04 - 07/01/05

Soldiers and rescue workers are frequently asked to enter the underground passages of caves, tunnels, and piping (C/T/P) systems. The layout is unknown, increasing the danger. A system that would provide a map of the geometry could be very helpful in such cases. We propose to determine the feasibility of a system based on reflected sound waves t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-037
Budget: 11/18/02 - 02/05/05

This proposal presents a program for the continued development of CSEA-ANVC: the application of "complex SEA" to problems in active noise and vibration control. It deals with a situation that has been intractable for ANVC - the cancellation of transient disturbances in modally rich and highly resonant structures and acoustical spaces. CSEA solv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-037
Budget: 03/15/01 - 03/29/02

Active noise and vibration control (ANVC) has not lived up to its promise. Attempts in the 1930's had little success because of inability to control the phase in electronics and transducers. Digital processing appeared to offer a solution for dealing with phase and arriving at algorithms of a complexity that could not be realized by analog sys...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N00-047
Budget: 05/10/00 - 11/10/00

Condition Based Maintenance has been shown to be effective in reducing costs and failures compared with Preventative Maintenance. Much shipboard equipment now has either permanently mounted transducers with connections to remote pickup or are serviced by a roving system consisting of transducers and a data logger. The Navy is also moving to syst...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-090
Budget: 05/14/99 - 11/14/99

A motor-operated valve (MOV) diagnostic system, originally researched at MIT with sponsorship from a nuclear power industry consortium, has been further developed at RH Lyon Corp with sponsorship by the NRC. This "MIT/RHL system" is non-invasive and may be implemented in either a remote or roving configuration. It uses supply voltage and current...
