  1. A BIOLOGICAL MODEL OF THE EFFECTS OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES

    SBC: Topical Testing, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE BASIC NATURE OF MILITARY OPERATIONS, IT IS SOMETIMES NECESSARY FOR AIR FORCE PERSONNEL TO BE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS IN THEIR WORK ENVIRONMENT EITHER AS A PROTRACTED LOW-LEVEL EXPOSURE OR AS A HIGH-LEVEL, ACUTE EXPOSURE. THE APPLICATION HEREIN PROPOSES TO USE THE ANTERIOR EYE (CORNEA AND CONJUNCTIVA) AND ITS SENSORY INNERVATION AS AN ASSAY OF TOXIC EFFECTS. THE ANTERIOR EYE HAS UNIQU ...

  2. A Technology to Mitigate Syngas Cooler Fouling

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25c

    Coal gasification plants have exhibited sub-par performance and plant economics due to poor reliability and availability. A major contributor to the poor performance has been fouling of the syngas cooler located downstream of the gasifier. The fouling is due to vaporized ash from the coal gasification process depositing on the inner walls of the tubes in the fire tube heat exchanger used in the sy ...

  4. An Efficient Methodology for Chemical Reactions of JP-8

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: AF093162

    The proposed project will leverage REI’s experience creating and applying reduced chemical kinetic mechanisms for JP-8 with source-term speed-up techniques such as in-situ adaptive tabulation (ISAT) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to develop techniques for speeding evaluation of JP-8 kinetics in gas turbine combustor simulations. During Phase I, pre-trained ANN models using reduced chemica ...

  5. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...

  6. ANALYTICAL MODELING OF FATIGUE LIFE ON ROD END BEARING SYSTEM

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, AS REPORTED IN PROGRAM SOLICITATION 90.1 BY THE AIR FORCE, THE SPECTRUM OF BEARING AND BEARING LINER MATERIALS USED IN THE AIRCRAFT BEARING SYSTEMS BEHAVE IN AN UNEXPECTED WAY WHEN SUBJECTED TO CYCLIC LOADINGS. TO INVESTIGATE THE PROBLEM AND BETTER PREDICT THE FATIGUE LIFE OF THIS ROD AND BEARING SYSTEM, FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSES OF STRESS DISTRIBUTIONS, STRESS INTENSITY FACTORS, FATIGUE CHA ...

  7. ANTHROPOMORPHIC CUTANEOUS TACTILE SENSING ON DEXTEROUS MECHANICAL HANDS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-EFFECTORS HAVE PROVIDED PRESENT DAY ROBOTS AND TELEOPERATOR SYSTEMS WITH THE ABILITY TO DO MANY INTRICATE TASKS, TRUE MANIPULATOR DEXTERITY WILL ONLY COME THROUGH THE USE OF MULTI-FINGERED ANTHROPOMORPHIC MECHANICAL HANDS. STABLE GRASPING OF IRREGULAR OBJECTS, OBJECT RECOGNITION, PRECISION ASSEMBLY, AND PERFORMANCE OF MANY INTRICATE TASKS NOW CONFINED TO HUMANS WILL ...

  8. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    The objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling an a ...

  9. COPPER INFILTRATED GRAPHITE FOR IMPROVED BRAZED JOINTS

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FIRST WALL STRUCTURES FOR FUTURE FUSION REACTORS ARE LIKELY TO CONSIST OF GRAPHITE OR CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITE BRAZED TO AN ACTIVELY COOLED METAL SUBSTRATE. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES A TECHNIQUE FOR VACUUM INFILTRATING ONE SIDE OF THEGRAPHITE WITH MOLTEN COPPER. SUCH INFILTRATED MATERIALS SHOULD BE MORE EASILY BRAZED THAN GRAPHITE OR CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES. THE RESULTING JOINTS ALSO SHOULD HAVE I ...

  10. DOWNHOLE NEUTRON FLUX MONITOR

    SBC: Merril Corporation of Utah, dba MSI Photogenics            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A TECHNOLOGY WHICH WILL ELIMINATE A MAJOR SOURCE OF ERRONEOUS DATA FROM ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND COMMONLY USED DOWNHOLE LOGGING TOOLS--THE 14 MEV PULSED NEUTRON SOURCE. BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR CONCEPT, THIS TECHNOLOGY WOULD ALLOW FOR THE NORMALIZING OF DATA DERIVED FROM PULSED NEUTRON SOURCES BY MEASURING THE STRENGTH OF THE UNCOLLIDED FLUX WHILE THE PU ...
