  1. Real-Time Health Monitoring for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT:A Propellant Health Monitoring (PHM) Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) utilizes actual propellant components in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert.These sensors provide real-time data corresponding to mechanical property degradation resulting from environmental aging of propellants.The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and automatically track degradation passively without ...

  2. GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112065

    ABSTRACT:Ionospheric scintillation and TEC are required by the IORD. We propose a GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA) that makes measurements of Ionospheric scintillation and TEC. GAMMA will be remotely deployable, such as on an ocean buoy or in a battlefield. It will send data to the user via the Iridium satellite network in near real-time. GAMMA will make use of ASTRAs existing Connected Autono ...

  3. High-Speed Weapon Radomes

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF121092

    ABSTRACT:As more and more advanced hypersonic weapons are developed, vehicle temperatures are expected to near 1250K (977C); as flight times increase, these temperatures are expected to saturate the entire vehicle.Typically, forward-looking RF and IR sensors are collocated in the same protective radome, which degrades the performance of both systems.FIRST RF proposes a significantly different appr ...

  7. Electroplated Alloys for Replacement of Hard Chrome on Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) that is regulated by both OSHA and the EPA. Health and environmental concern ...

  8. Variable Precision Filters

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I SBIR project, the Athena Group, Inc., will develop a mathematical framework and expert system design tool for robust and highly efficient filter design. The developed tool will be capable of designing filters that have challenging requirements, such as sharp transitions, narrow subbands, and/or complicated passband structures. The developed expert system will be able to ...

  9. Robust, automatic design of highly efficient, variable precision filters

    SBC: The Numericus Group, LLC.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: The Numericus Group, LLC (TNG) is proposing a paradigm shift for digital filter design, opening a number of technological opportunities that TNG is uniquely qualified to pursue. At the heart of this new paradigm are algorithms that are guaranteed to converge and do not require an expert to oversee their operation, unlike many existing algorithms commonly used today. The new approac ...

  10. Innovative DMFC Power Supply for NDI Hand Tools

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF141204

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force regularly uses eddy current and ultrasonic NDI equipment which can be configured with a wide range of battery chemistries. Many of these battery chemistries, which include toxic heavy metals, are detrimental to the environment and can be difficult and costly to dispose of. The Air Force is seeking a new power supply for applicable NDI equipment that reduces the environment ...
