  1. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  2. Materials Knowledge Base

    SBC: RJ LEE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The overall technical objective is to develop the information systems technology necessary to implement a Materials Knowledge Base. This object-based data repository will allow the acquisition and storage of experimental materials analysis data,regardless of its origin or format. The mechanism is also provided for investigators to access and utilize that data in other experiments, analyses, or si ...

  3. Improved Trajectory Control for Penetration into Soils at 4000 ft/sec

    SBC: DE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04160

    We propose to develop an earth penetrator with improved shape for trajectory stability during high-speed penetration. Several promising penetrator shaping concepts have been identified in Phase I. Through further analysis, one or two of these will be selected for further development. Penetrator designs will be formulated and optimized, then tested through gun firings of scale-model penetrators int ...

  5. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  6. Lightweight Titanium Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Materials Resources International            Topic: N/A

    The evolution of materials in advanced aircraft continues and there is emerging interest from the U.S. Air Force to move titanium alloys into heat exchangers for advanced aircraft. Titanium substitution will lower the weight of nickel base alloy heatexchangers by over 30%, leading to increased fuel economies and performance. The proposed Phase II effort will select a typical aircraft stainless ste ...

  7. Metal Oxide Catalyst for Methacrylic Acid Preparation via One-Step Oxidation of Isobutane

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: N/A

    70261B02-II Methacrylic acid (MAA) and its ester derivatives are important building blocks for many large- volume polymers and resins. By 1999, the U.S. annual production of the single methyl ester derivative, methyl methacrylate, reached 1.7 billion pounds. The current commercial route for making MAA and its ester derivatives is the acetone cyanohydrin (ACH) route, a multiple-step preparatio ...

  8. Aircrew Bladder Relief Capability

    SBC: Omni Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Omni Measurement Systems, Inc. of South Burlington, Vermont is developing safe, self-powered, semi-automatic bladder relief systems for male and female aircrew members. These hands-free, odor-free systems will permit aircrew members to concentrate onmission objectives without distraction or interruption. The systems can be used without the aircrew member having to unbuckle seat belts and harnesses ...

  9. Precision Holder Technology for In-Situ TEM Experimentation

    SBC: E A Fischione Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    75272B Transmission Electron Microscopy is a technique that allows materials to be analyzed to the nanometer and sub-nanometer scales. The next level of materials analysis will require the ability to perform dynamic experimentation within the microscope, which would require specialized specimen holding technology to perform the desired experiments. This project addresses the treatment of a spec ...

  10. Innovative Filtering Techniques for Ground Target Tracking


    The project focus is the development of a ground target tracking algorithm to support the JSTARS radar operating in the GMTI mode. Multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) algorithms maintain alternative data associations to represent report-to-track association ambiguities. In Phase 1 we developed a prototype MHT algorithm not requiring the Bayes’ posterior distribution for the target state to be G ...
