Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-225
Budget: 07/27/10 - 07/27/12

The proposed effort in Phase II is to develop, produce, and demonstrate a prototype inspection platform and complementary damage modeling tool as a complete nondestructive evaluation solution referred to as the X-Ray Corrosion Detection System (XCDS). This system will be based on the state of the art radiographic techniques including narrow-band...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-240
Budget: 05/04/09 - 02/04/10

Corrosion is becoming an increasing problem in the Air Forces aging fleet. Corrosion is developing in airframes in inaccessible areas never intended for disassembly. Mitigation efforts are proving to be costly and time consuming. A methodology to locate and evaluate hidden corrosion in-situ is needed. X-rays produced by laser Compton scattering ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-225
Budget: 05/01/09 - 02/01/10

Corrosion is becoming an increasing problem in the Air Forces aging fleet. Corrosion is developing in airframes in inaccessible areas never intended for disassembly. This potentially leads to premature failure due to fatigue or significant reduction of material integrity. Mitigation efforts are proving to be costly and time consuming. A methodo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will develop a prototype Induced Positron Manufacturing Damage System (IPMDS) to be used to assess initial component quality, and manufacturing damage effects for Ti-6Al-4V and IN738 components. The IPMDS is based on the Induced Positron Annihilation technologies whose capa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-134
Budget: 03/05/04 - 12/05/04

The ability to detect cracks within Taper-Lok fastener holes associated with thick, multi-layer wing structures without removing the fastener presents significant challenges to existing nondestructive inspection technologies. Critical fastener hole inspections for sections of the B-1B wing structures require removal of the Taper-Lok fasteners f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a field use, nondestructive measurement capability for hydrogen embrittlement (HE) damage in high-strength alloys based on induced positron annihilation. The primary objective of this project will be to demonstrate this innovative technology for the detection, quantifica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-012
Budget: 07/25/03 - 01/25/04

Damage detection in aircraft structural components is a critical issue, particularly with the increased lifetimes expected from aging aircraft. Development of a reliable inspection technology that can assess current damage levels and remaining performance life for aircraft components requires methods that can accurately and quantitatively deter...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-092
Budget: 07/23/03 - 04/23/04

Failure of solid rocket motor propellants due to structural or chemical breakdown from either manufacturing or aging effects can result in potential failure of the rocket and significant maintenance requirements. Defects in rocket propellants are a significant issue particularly for new propellants, which may suffer from short experiential hist...
