  1. CMC Structures for Exhaust Nozzle Components Based on 3-D Woven Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF071105

    In Phase I of the proposed program we plan to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing bladetrack components using an approach that will result in substantial reductions in cost and cycle time compared with conventional 2-D lay-up methods. The approach involves use of a 3-D fiber preform with the shape of the final component, produced by an orthogonal weaving process developed at 3TEX, which ...

  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. Development of a Near-field Acoustical Holography System for Aircraft Jet Source Noise Measurements

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF071023

    The current and next generation military jet aircraft are exposing both ground maintenance personnel and the community to high levels of noise. The DoD is funding research to develop advanced modeling tools for community noise exposure and for noise reduction techniques. As these tools are being developed to address to the overall military jet noise problem, the lack of understanding of the actu ...

  4. Recycling Composite Scrap and Waste Materials

    SBC: FIREBIRD ADVANCED MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF06081

    Recycling of composites manufacturing scrap and end-of-life waste is expected to become more important as the use of composite materials expands into different applications. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) wastes especially are a potentially valuable source of recycled carbon fibers if an economic and environmentally friendly technology for recycling these fibers can be developed. This Pha ...

  5. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR


    The US Air Force seeks innovative techniques and algorithms to investigate optimal platform routing that optimizes collection for fusion metric benefits, while also satisfying collection and de-confliction requirements. The primary focus in this regard is on the combination of both cooperative-system wide-body and multi-UAV (i.e., categorically inclusive UAVs) devices that provide positive and com ...

  6. Homoepitaxial GaN-based Devices for RF Electronics

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071223

    In this Phase I proposal, Kyma Technologies will examine the epi properties and device performance of homoepitaxial GaN-based device layers grown on semi-insulating GaN substrates, targeting metrics that will help characterize performance at high frequency and correlating device performance with material properties. High frequency GaN devices will theoretically benefit from a lower dislocation den ...

  7. High Conductivity Nanoscale Modification for Electrically Conductive Organic Matrix Composites

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF071124

    Traditionally, conductive paths in composite structures to mitigate the effects of lightning strikes have been established by bonding aluminum or copper mesh to the structure either as the outside ply or embedded one ply down or incorporating strands of conductive material into the laminate. For external surface protection, a number of metal and metallized fiber products have been developed, typi ...

  8. Lightweight Electronic Enclosures Incorporating Nanotubes

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF06085

    Due to their low density and exceptionally high strength and modulus, graphite fiber composites are being used increasingly for the fabrication of aircraft and spacecraft. Additonally, because of these superior mechanical properties and low weight, composites have been replacing metals, such as aluminum, in many applications. The replacement of metals has often been slowed in applications such as ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Efficiently Computing and/or Compensating for Object Variability in Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) Applications

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF071233

    There are numerous targets of interest to the Air Force that may be manifested in many different forms. For example, many ground targets may be configured with or without particular subcomponents, and such subcomponents may also be situated in different locations on a given target. Moreover, the same target may appear differently to a radar as a function of specific articulations even when the s ...
