  1. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...

  4. Heterogeneous Porous Media for Thermal Transport Mitigation in Hypersonics

    SBC: S. D. MILLER AND ASSOCIATES P.L.L.C.            Topic: AF161005

    ABSTRACT: S. D. Miller and Associates (SDMA) research team has led the field of research in Opacified Fibrous Insulation (OFI) since 2003.Early OFI prototypes equaled the thermal performance of Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) with MultiLayer Insulation (MLI) using gold-coated shields and vastly reduced cost and maintenance of TPS for hypersonic vehicles.In 2015, OFI prototypes demonstrated improv ...

  5. Landing Gear Fatigue Model K Modification

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF161018

    The Air Force maintains landing gear systems to ensure acceptable structural integrity during their service life.As landing gear systems throughout the Air Force are pushed further and further beyond their original design life, there is a crucial need to develop more precise predictive models addressing the fatigue characteristics of landing gear parts. Fatigue life reduction due to surface finish ...

  6. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: Arizona Engineering Science LLC            Topic: AF161024

    A comprehensive framework for hypersonic boundary layer transition predictions applicable to wind tunnel and free flight conditions is proposed. The distinguishing feature of this transition prediction framework is that it is developed from the ground up allowing full integration of the important transition regions (receptivity region, linear/secondary/nonlinear stability regimes, etc.) and additi ...

  7. Uniformed Aeroelastic ROM Realization Across Flight Parameter Space for Dynamic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161026

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort will focus on the development of the parameterized Navier-Stokes (NS) based ROM for the Dynamic Flight Simulation (DFS) framework. The F/A-18 Active Aeroelastic Wing (AAW) aircraft will be used as the test case to investigate and validate the proposed methods.The background flow solutions under various Mach number and angle-of-attack grid points are first obtained by ...

  8. Highly doped glass enabled high repetition rate, high average power USPL sources

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF161038

    ABSTRACT: NP Photonics proposes to develop a high repetition rate, high average power USPL source by taking advantage of our laser technologies based on highly doped glasses. This USPL source has the advantages of high power scalability, compactness, and high reliability.In this Phase I program, we will investigate the feasibility and study the risk to develop a power scalable USPL using our highl ...

  9. Innovative TWTs for VW Band Communications

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF161062

    Based on our experiences with our current E-band, 81-86 GHz Traveling wave tube (TWT), we understand that improvements are needed in efficiency, continuous wave operation, and overall bandwidth performance (gain flatness and output power flatness) across the entire 5 GHz as manufacturing of our current design is being pushed.Therefore, to achieve the above-mentioned performance improvements to obt ...

  10. RANS-Based Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Aircraft Life Prediction

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161069

    ABSTRACT: Both commercial and military aircraft are being flown/utilized for extended operational time. The aircraft cumulative flight hours often extends the original design limits. Each aircraft manufacturer calculates aircraft fatigue and damage using different techniques. A more accurate prediction of the remaining life and inspection intervals for an individual aircraft is required, as these ...
