Method for seamless joining and repair of metal parts using ultrasonic additive manufacturing
TS-050479 — This invention provides a method for repairing metal parts by removing and replacing worn, damaged, or defective metal material. It also serves as a method for seamlessly joining metal sheets and other parts while retaining the original temper of the joined parts. This technology, based on ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM), achieves strong joints and repairs by enabling the filling of a channel that has been cut, formed, or otherwise created in a metal structure or between two metal structures.
The aircraft industry lacks a robust method for joining metal sheets, structures, and assemblies together in wings, fuselages, and engines. Fusion based welding methods cannot always be used because they create heat-affected zones, which reduce the mechanical performance of material around the wel…

Integrally Joined Stainless Steel-NiTi Medical Devices
TS-050057 — A method for manufacturing surgical tools and implants with strong, gapless joints between NiTi (Nitinol) and stainless steel to capitalize on the best properties of both materials.
NiTi (Nitinol) is widely accepted and used for medical devices such as surgical tools and implants due to its biocompatibility and unique thermal-mechanical properties which provide super-elastic or shape memory responses. However, there are currently no commercial solutions for joining of NiTi to…

A method to detect counterfeit integrated circuits through the use of a microwave resonator
TS-048646 — A novel method to detect a counterfeit integrated circuit (IC) and to authenticate an IC using the electromagnetic characteristics of the IC and a resonator
The presence of counterfeit integrated circuits (commonly referred to as “ICs” or “chips”) in a supply chain, such as a military supply chain, can result in either a failure of a critical system or a compromise of the data on that system. These counterfeit chips may not be …

Dielectric heterojunction device
TS-048644 — The potential of different materials for vertical power switching is often assessed by calculating the Baliga Figure of Merit (BFOM). In the case of wide and ultra-wide bandgap materials, the high breakdown fields and the relatively good transport properties make the BFOM significantly higher than…

Capacitive Sensing Method for Integrated Circuit Identification and Authentication
TS-048641 — A method of authenticating an IC die’s origin and uniquely identifying each die with an intrinsic unclonable value through measurement of on-chip capacitance values
Hardware security in Integrated Circuit (IC) designs is of increasing importance in dealing with the insecure, expanding global supply chain of these parts. The ability to trace the origin of a die, combined with the capability to uniquely identify each die provides valuable quantitative measures …

A proximity sensor for the detection of hands on a steering wheel
TS-048591 — An embedded coax proximity sensor for the detection of hands or other objects near a vehicle's steering wheel
The coming age of autonomous vehicles will require the development of many new technologies to keep the vehicle occupants safe even when no one is paying attention to the vehicle operation. At present, given the limited capabilities of autonomous vehicles, it is necessary for the driver to monitor…

A Lightweight Low Inductance Power Module with Insulated Baseplates
TS-048588 — A lightweight power module that reduces loop stray inductance while maintaining good electrical insulation and thermal dissipation.
In conventional power module structures, the die is attached to the substrate, usually direct bonding copper (DBC). The ceramic substrate layer provides electrical insulation between the circuit and cooling structure and attaches to a conductive baseplate material (Cu, Al, AlSiC) to dissipate heat…

A Novel Variable Stiffness Robotic Gripper Based on Layer Jamming
TS-048216 — A soft robotic gripper design which incorporates layer jamming as a means for creating tunable stiffness control and higher load capacities.
Automation using robotics has taken many forms including, but not limited to, automotive manufacturing, transportation of good in shipping warehouses, and the delicate handling of wafers in semiconductor plants. In many of these applications grippers and end-of-arm-tools (EOAT’s) are incorpo…

Method for Automatic Transmission Calibration and Controller Optimization
TS-048123 — A method for automatically calibrating and optimizing gear shift control parameters through iterative algorithms both during development and during use.
As fuel efficiency standards for modern cars increase, manufacturers are adding more and more gears to their transmissions. The higher number of gears allows for greater gear spread, meaning engineers can add taller gears that allow engines to operate at lower, more fuel-efficient rpms. Despite…
