  1. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  3. Electromagnetic Hardened Composite Enclosures for Aircraft Systems

    SBC: BT ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF131110

    ABSTRACT: BTE proposes a multi-component architecture composed of structural composites and thin layers of optimal shielding materials. The structure will provide a 65 to 75% weight reduction over an aluminum or steel enclosure while providing the same structural rigidity and comparable EMI/EMP isolation. The enclosure uses proven technologies, and uses inexpensive stock materials. The enclosur ...

  4. RF TRAVELING-WAVE SCANNING SYSTEM WITH A NONINVASIVE, BROADBAND PHOTONIC PROBE

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF131113

    ABSTRACT: The feasibility of developing a prototype traveling-wave scanning system based on non-metallic, broadband, optical-fiber-coupled microwave-field sensors that can be used for the test and evaluation of coatings applied to the surface of aircraft without damaging the coating layers is investigated. The concepts to be employed in performing the measurement of microwave surface waves will b ...

  5. Mitigating Sensor Saturation through Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF131121

    ABSTRACT: We propose a novel multi-frame image processing approach which employs High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) imaging in combination with model-based lens-flare estimation as a means of mitigating focal plane saturation and lens flare when extremely bright sources are present in MWIR imagery. Collecting multiple image frames with varying optical flux densities provides information over a diverse set ...

  6. Mitigating Sensor Saturation through Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: CONSOLIDATED RESOURCE IMAGING LLC            Topic: AF131121

    ABSTRACT: Sensor saturation and the resultant loss of information is a problem that plagues both infrared and electro-optical sensors. Saturation often leads to blooming or dilation of the saturated region, destroying data in surrounding regions. A means for enhancing imagery through post processing to minimize the effects of blooming and maximize the value of remaining image content is proposed. ...

  7. Direct Conversion of CO2 to Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuel

    SBC: M3 Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: AF103252

    ABSTRACT: This project has been investigating the feasibility of converting carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into renewable liquid hydrocarbon fuel using solar energy and the same thermodynamic principles that enable biological photosynthesis; however, existing industrial technologies and processes are being integrated and substituted for biological processes. Phase I activities have included d ...
