  1. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  2. High Performance MWIR/LWIR LED Wafers on Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. These arrays have limited frame-rate, dynamic range, and can be cost prohibitive as the array size increases. Alternative technologies are required. The most promising is infrared light emitting diodes (IR LED) based on InAs/GaSb type-II superlattices (T2SL) or W-Quantum Wells, with the ability to tune the bandg ...

  3. Enhanced Starting Reliability and High Altitude Operation of Internal Combustion Engines on Miniature Munitions

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161098

    The focus of this research and development effort is the maturation of a small-displacement internal combustion (IC) engine with reliable, on-board, in-flight, start/re-start capabilities specifically targeting compressed carriage sUAS aerial vehicles that are remotely deployed.The advantage of integrating of IC engines into these platforms is a significant increase in range and endurance expandin ...

  4. High Bandwidth Hexapod for Hypersonic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Dynamic Structures And Materials, LLC            Topic: AF161224

    Hypersonic flight environments can include motion with high frequency spectral content that is difficult to simulate.This high frequency vibration may adversely affect the accuracy of guidance and control sensors, so it is very important to the Air Force Research Laboratory to be able to recreate the motion in a way that allows sensor performance to be evaluated.Motion platforms such as the KHILS ...

  5. Open Standard for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS)

    SBC: Third Dimension Technologies LLC            Topic: AF16AT07

    The Air Force has identified a need for a display agnostic common streaming model for 3D data. Third Dimension Technologies (TDT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have formed a consortium to define a 3D streaming model based on open standards for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS). Two factors are driving this need. The first is the dramatic increase in the collection, storage and trans ...

  6. NDI Tool for Heat Damage Detection in Composites

    SBC: Veritox            Topic: AF161121

    The incipient thermal damage (ITD) of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites cannot be detected by common nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, such as ultrasound or visual inspection. ITD, however, can reduce matrix dominated mechanical properties of composites and, thus, requires detection and evaluation to ensure the integrity of composite structures that might be subjected to the ...

  7. Direct Measurement of Bondline Temperature During Composite Repair/Fabrication

    SBC: ADVANCED PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF161115

    Achieving desired bondline temperatures is critical to ensuring proper wetting, flow and cure when repairing composite structures. Under this multi-phase SBIR project a novel method for measuring/managing cure temperature in the bondline is being pursued based on patented amorphous microwire temperature sensors that are placed permanently within the bondline and read remotely via low-frequency ele ...

  8. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    The project will deliver a flexible open, non-proprietary NDI environment with the capability to capture NDI inspection data through an adaptive interface, using streamlined NDI processes and provide powerful engineering analytics tools for retrieving and

  9. Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161004

    ABSTRACT: The Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC) is a self-contained plasma diagnostic instrument suite uniquely suited to the task of characterizing and comparing thruster operation in ground test and on-orbit environments. Of paramount importance to the qualification of electric propulsion (EP) systems is the measurable influence of the ground testing and evaluation (T&E) faci ...

  10. Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161006

    ABSTRACT: An innovative diagnostic, Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence (TREBF), will be developed that possesses the measurement capabilities needed to understand test facility effects on electric propulsion (EP) systems. Even the most advanced test and evaluation vacuum chambers are incapable of replicating the pressures encountered in geostationary earth orbits. These elevated background p ...
