Dynamic Removal of Clutter to Improve Situational Awareness in Traffic Management Systems
TS-054551 — Algorithm/software that dynamically classifies and removes clutter in systems such as the traffic management systems of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management (UTM) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM).
The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is predicted to be worth $56.18 billion by 2027. The global commercial UAV market size alone was valued at $13.44 billion in 2020, with a recorded demand of over 689,000 units. With a wide range of applications, the UAV market is expected to grow at 19.9% C…

X-Ray Assistive Device for Standardizing the Knee Templating Process
TS-054471 — Knee templating is used as part of the pre-operative planning for knee replacement to determine the best fit for an implant. The current assistive devices used to determine fit are unreliable and inaccurate for proper patient fit. A new device is suggested to overcome these limitations.
Over 600,000 knee replacements are performed per year. As part of the pre-operative planning for surgery, x-ray images are taken to determine the proper fit for the implant. Even with the use of a calibration ball, this knee templating procedure remains inaccurate and unreliable for a number of re…

Multiple image matching for Digital Elevation Model generation from air and spaceborne imagery.
TS-054273 — This invention creates a digital elevation model of the pictured ground from remote sensors by multiple stereo pair photogrammetric processing for increasing image usability, quality of the 3D surface model, and simplifying production process. .tb_button {padding:1px;cursor:pointer;border-right: 1px solid #8b8b8b;border-left: 1px solid #FFF;border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;}.tb_button.hover {borer:2px outset #def; background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;}.ws_toolbar {z-index:100000} .ws_toolbar .ws_tb_btn {cursor:pointer;border:1px solid #555;padding:3px} .tb_highlight{background-color:yellow} .tb_hide {visibility:hidden} .ws_toolbar img {padding:2px;margin:0px}
A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a representation of the topographical surface of Earth. A DEM is often used to track climate change and create maps. DEMs are usually generated by active sensors such as LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) and passive sensors, such as imaging sensors. LiDAR DEMs …

Enhancing the mechanical performance of resistance spot welding of aluminum alloys to steel using chromium-rich Interlayers
TS-054040 — This is a new method of resistance spot welding of aluminum alloy and advanced high strength steel that creates a stronger bond by using a chromium-rich interlayer. The interlayer improves joint strength, ductility, and toughness compared to traditional methods.
Resistance welding is used to combine two metals at one point. This technique is used extensively in automotive manufacturing, combining an aluminum (Al) to an advanced high strength steel (AHSS) structure. Welding Al and AHSS together directly, however, does not create a high-quality bond, due to…

Method for aligning multiple lasers using axial sensor data.
TS-054019 — This technology improves the additive manufacturing process by aligning the multiple lasers to one reference point. The reference laser provides real time feedback to the other lasers thereby minimizing seam defects resulting in a higher quality print. .tb_button {padding:1px;cursor:pointer;border-right: 1px solid #8b8b8b;border-left: 1px solid #FFF;border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;}.tb_button.hover {borer:2px outset #def; background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;}.ws_toolbar {z-index:100000} .ws_toolbar .ws_tb_btn {cursor:pointer;border:1px solid #555;padding:3px} .tb_highlight{background-color:yellow} .tb_hide {visibility:hidden} .ws_toolbar img {padding:2px;margin:0px}
The additive manufacturing (AM) market has been steadily growing and has recently surpassed the $10 billion in market revenue. To keep up with this demand for less expensive, larger parts, users are turning to multi-laser machines to scale the technology. Each machine has a coordinate system w…

Ultrasonically assisted wire additive manufacturing process and apparatus
TS-054013 — The ultrasonically assisted wire additive manufacturing process and apparatus is a new innovation that uses power ultrasound (UA) for benefits in processing molten metals. The UA energy is directly applied in the local deposition pool, which makes this new hybrid process applicable for building parts with any size and geometry.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of 3D printing for industrial use. Instead of countertop devices printing small toys from plastic, industrial AM is used on a much larger scale to create engine blocks, plane components, and many other products made of metal alloys. AM is traditionally do…

Vehicle-in-Virtual-Environment Method for Autonomous Driving System Development and Evaluation
TS-054005 — This technology is a Vehicle-in-Virtual Environment (VVE) method for testing and evaluating Autonomous Vehicles (AV). The VVE approach is a safe, reliable, repetitive, and scalable method of testing AVs, decreasing the risks and costs of testing AVs on public roads.
The demand for autonomous vehicles continues to grow as companies and cities realize the effect on the costs, safety, and efficiency that AVs have on everyday lives. Initiatives such as MCity in Detroit, Michigan, and Smart City in Columbus, Ohio, show a strong commitment to the development of aut…

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 requires robust methods 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 w…

Out-of-Plane Fluidic Actuator for Curved Surface Applications
TS-050464 — A novel bistable fluidic actuator design which uses naturally occurring fluid dynamic instabilities instead of moving parts to create an oscillating jet that is out-of-plane from the fluid inlet port.
Turbines are used to produce much of the world’s electricity, whether it be from nuclear, coal, or natural gas sources, as well as provide power for the vast majority of aircraft flying today. For many turbine applications, the first stage vane and blade just downstream of the combustor is a…
