Award List:

Microphone Phased Array Machinery Fault Diagnostic System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Patricio Ravetta, Research Engineer
Award Amount: $88,844.00
A microphone phased array machinery fault diagnostic system is proposed. In this system, a microphone phased array is positioned such as to have a direct line of sight to the machine to be monitored. The microphone signals are recorded simultaneously and used to scan or beamform over a grid… More

Microphone Phased Array Machinery Fault Diagnostic System (Revised)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Kyle Schwartz, Research Engineer
Award Amount: $651,840.00
The objective of this effort is to develop a remote acoustics-based system to detect rotating equipment health status. The goal is an automated acoustic monitoring system that includes the necessary filtering/data manipulation techniques and expert system/classification/anomaly detection algorithms… More

Sonic Boom Vibro-Acoustic Simulations using Multiple Point Sources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Patricio A. Ravetta, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $97,316.00
AVEC proposes an innovative concept for the evaluation of human response studies to sonic booms inside realistic structures. The approach proposed is to simulate the distributed boom load on the structure using an array of discrete forces. The forces are applied sequentially making the approach… More

Quieting of Continuous Miner Scrubber Fan Noise

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Patricio A. Ravetta – 540-961-2832
Award Amount: $136,441.00
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal targets a specific mission of NIOSH and the current SBIR solicitation: hearing loss prevention for mine workers. The main objective of this work is to reduce the noise radiated by Continuous Miners (CM). Since CMs are responsible for about 30% of… More
