43 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-009
Budget: 06/07/16 - 12/12/16

Rotorcraft have been at the forefront of Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) technologies. For nearly 20 years, Heath & Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) have been used on rotorcraft such as the H-60, CH-53E, H-1 and V-22 to collect prognostic data to reduce preventative maintenance costs and increase asset availability. The majority of the HUMS dat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03T017
Budget: 09/21/15 - 09/20/17

ABSTRACT:This proposal presents tasks leading to an integrated flight test of a structural health monitoring (SHM) system to monitor damage in the C-5 aircraft material with minimal manual intervention. During Phase I, MDC focused on the design of a sensor hardware for SHM that makes use of a distributed infrastructure. The original Phase II ef...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-065
Budget: 05/15/15 - 08/15/17

ABSTRACT:MIL-STD-1530C dictates how to maintain USAF aircraft through the Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP), which uses damage tolerant analysis (DTA) to set inspection intervals. While effective and safe, DTA can also be quite conservative, leading to excessive down-time for depot transit, tear-down, manual inspection, re-assembly, a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-065
Budget: 06/06/14 - 03/09/15

ABSTRACT: MIL-HDBK-1530C to dictate how to maintain USAF aircraft through the Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP), which uses damage tolerant analysis (DTA) to set inspection intervals. While effective and safe, DTA can also be quite conservative, leading to excessive down-time for depot transit, tear-down, manual inspection, re-assem...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-A3.05
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The proposed innovation is a power conversion technology that will help achieve NASA's Fundamental Aeronautics Program (FAP) goals of reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency for high speed flight. NASA's objective to increase the specific power of high efficiency electric components in order to make a 10 mega-watt onboard power genera...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H13.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Space structures are unique in that once they are deployed, there is little to no opportunity for manual inspection to assess their integrity. Even on the space station, where there is a continuous human presence, traditional non-destructive evaluation (NDE) is impractical due to complexity of necessitating a space-walk, not to mention the trai...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Chicago

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T007
Budget: 09/18/13 - 09/23/14

This STTR aims to develop a novel method for detecting and tracking growth of cracks in rotorcraft gearbox. Aerospace structures are subject to dynamic loading. In particular, gearbox components experience continuous cyclic loading, wear and eventually develop fatigue cracks. As opposed to most other aircraft components, gearbox components are n...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-125
Budget: 09/03/13 - 03/05/15

This SBIR aims to develop a novel method for detection of bondline damage in composite joints. The implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) into aerospace applications has been hindered by component quantity, including sensors, cables, and acquisition/computation units, as well as data quality. Particularly for large-area application...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-097
Budget: 07/31/13 - 07/30/14

ABSTRACT: The Metis Design Corporation (MDC) has developed a structural health monitoring (SHM) system to monitor damage in aircraft material with minimal manual intervention. During Phase I, MDC focused on pattern recognition-based algorithms, demonstrating detection of damage, discerning different damage types, and estimating severity. The or...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-053
Budget: 06/24/13 - 06/24/15

This SBIR aims to develop an efficient approach for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of submersible Navy composites. This research leverages hardware previously developed by Metis Design Corporation (MDC), including distributed digitization hardware, piezoelectric-based damage-localization sensors, and a data accumulation hub. Collaborating wi...
