Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-044
Budget: 09/30/16 - 09/29/17

Santec Systems Inc. has invented a super high-resolution, large area ultrasound detector called an acousto-optical (AO) sensor. It can be used to inspect parts by forming instant images of parts/products, analogous to x-ray images, using ultrasound which is non-ionizing and safe. Using the AO sensor-based inspection system, ultrasonic evaluation...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Southern Illinois University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T011
Budget: 07/01/13 - 04/30/14

This research work aims to demonstrate the feasibility of applying a novel Acoustography technique for the semi-quantitative evaluation of bond shear strength and assessment of adhesive bond quality in airframe sandwich structures. The proposed approach will utilize thermal and mechanical excitation methods to separate the weak/kissing bonds in ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 09/02/10 - 02/28/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to use a 2D area detector called Acousto-Optic (AO) sensor to provide an acoustic output monitoring method for HIFU transducers, where the need for two separate methods, radiation force balance and hydrophone scanning, is circumvented. The AO sensor provides an instant 2D imag...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 07/10/09 - 01/09/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to use a super high-resolution, large area ultrasound detector called acousto-optic (AO) sensor to record an ultrasound hologram of the breast, from which a 3D volume breast image can be generated instantly (analogously to optical holography). Successful completion of this wor...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-50
Budget: 09/18/08 - 12/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will investigate a super high-resolution, large area ultrasound detector to produce instant, spatially correlated, full-field mammography-like ultrasound projection image of the breast. The aim is to determine if additional information can be provided for "suspicious" areas on a mammogram to rule...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-044
Budget: 11/05/03 - 11/08/05

In Phase I of this SBIR project, novel acousto-optic (AO) sensors were developed that offered many advantages over current state-of-the-art AO sensors. These sensors were used to demonstrate feasibility of a simple, fast and low-cost method for NDE of fielded structures. The proposed Phase II work will build on the success of Phase I to refine...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-044
Budget: 02/12/03 - 12/12/03

Novel acousto-optic (AO) sensors that overcome the limitations of current AO sensor will be developed. These sensors will be used to demonstrate feasibility of an ultrasonic evaluation system to provide simple, fast and low-cost method for NDE of fielded structures. The proposed approach will circumvent the need for cumbersome, multi axes mech...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: OSD97-008
Budget: 09/04/01 - 09/04/03

In this project, new liquid crystal materials will be developed to achieve significant improvements in the acosutic detection sensitivity and transient response of present liquid crystal based acoustic detectors. The new detectors will be employed in the underwater acoustic imaging camera, developed in Phase I, to produce images of mine-li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A97-138
Budget: 12/07/99 - 12/07/01

In Phase I of this SBIR project, new Acousto-Optic (AO) sensors with a 5x~larger area compared to prior AO sensors were successfully produced. In addition, AO sensors were developed to cover the SOOkHz-l5MHz frequency range usually employed in NDT. These achievements are significant because they can dramatically improve the efficiency, cost-effe...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99T001
Budget: 08/09/99 - 08/08/00

The proposed project will develop the complementary roles of quantitative non-destructive evaluation and probabilistic reliability assessment for application to aging aircraft structures. A life-cycle management methodology will be demonstrated analytically. This will involve a synthesis of results for stress analysis of aircraft parts, crack pr...
