  1. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Low ambient temperature influences the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the low temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  2. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  3. Improving "Trusting the Edge" Through Cryptographic Key Hiding

    SBC: ARXAN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD06I13

    The Security to the Edge strategy identifies a growth area in the development technologies to enable Trusting the Edge; particularly, two research areas are specified: i) hardening an edge node against physical attack; and ii) facilitating the ability of an edge node to monitor and communicate the state of its integrity. The thrust of this proposal is twofold: i) to describe a technique for hidin ...

  5. Fretting Wear Elimination in Gear Box Housings

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF05129

    The development of the F-35 LiftFan has revealed the possibility of fretting between the fan input shaft bearing OD surface and the aluminum gearbox housing. A steel insert is currently used to provide protection against fretting of the gearbox housing. In order to provide an effective solution and reduce the overall weight of the F-35, “IBC Materials and Technologies” has developed an advan ...

  6. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits

    SBC: MICROTECH, INC.            Topic: AF07T025

    The goal of this project is to develop new techniques to enable feasible fabrication of the hybrid CMOS/nanodevice integrated circuits (CMOL). In Phase I, a new technique will be developed to implement a practicable CMOL cell by using a novel 3D integration approach, which will significantly reduce the fabrication challenges. The fabricated 3D CMOL cell performance will be tested and validated. ...

  7. Algorithm Development for Reconfigurable Computing Architectures

    SBC: MNB TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T017

    High performance reconfigurable computing (HPRC) is an expanding technology offering workstations and small clusters performance levels previously reserved for large-scale systems populating the "Supercomputing 500" list. However, the lack of open-source libraries of generically applicable numeric methods (i.e. BLAS, LAPACK, Numeric Recipes, etc.) optimized for FPGA embodiment has hindered adopti ...

  8. Design, Analysis, and Optimization Environment for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF071004

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to demonstrate proof of concept for a directed energy system analysis and design environment. This analysis and design environment will be based upon Distributed Heterogeneous Simulation (DHS) technology. DHS allows the interconnection of models developed in different simulation languages running on different computing platforms to form an integrated ...

  9. Optimization of Stator Tooth Geometry and Magnetic Material Properties for Enhanced Torque Production in Electric Machines

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF071188

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to investigate design techniques to improve torque density, power density, and efficiency in wound-rotor synchronous machines. The underlying principle of the proposed design technique is to alter the flux path in the machine to increase torque production. This will be achieved through optimally altering the stator tooth geometry and magnetic materia ...

  10. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...
