  1. Advanced MRO Multi-Echelon Planning and Scheduling

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06330

    The objective of this proposal is to identify and integrate multi-echelon constraints in Manufacturing Repair Overhaul (MRO) process planning and scheduling. The OC-ALC depot operates in a multi-echelon MRO environment that is highly constrained regarding its capacities, resources, deadlines, and other physical limitations. The representation, capture, satisfaction and relaxation of these constra ...

  2. Dielectric Measuring Tool for Radome Checkout

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06327

    The main goal of this work is to develop a more reliable, robust, and accurate measurements of radome transmission properties. As a result, we propose a pilot study in order to design a two-horn testing system and provide several prototype radome testing measurements. The proposed two-horn testing system will be mainly focused on transmission efficiency mechanism. The proposed system features a ...

  3. Pattern Recognition for Aircraft Maintainer Troubleshooting

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF05263

    Due to the significant decrease of aircraft parts across the U.S. military over past years, managing parts more efficiently has become a great necessity. The term managing suggests having the data resources available to predict, forecast events or determine an item’s use such as the mission capability of a part or weapon system. The decrease of parts can be attributed to many factors, some of w ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) Performance Prediction Model

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF06258

    A methodology is proposed to provide intelligence to more classical global optimization schemes. By incorporating these methods, design engineers will be able to not only identify and resolve difficulties within an antenna element, but will be able to synthesis and optimize an entire array, including the antenna elements, feed structures, array position and shape, element location and orientation ...

  6. Energy Harvesting (EH) for Small Air Vehicles

    SBC: Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC            Topic: AF071258

    Technological advances in energy harvesting (EH) offer significant benefits to powering micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) by extending mission length and range. Currently, batteries limit the range and mission time of MAVs since the batteries contain a finite supply of energy. The proposed research is unique in that it considers the use of multiple EH sources along with both batteries and supercapacit ...

  7. Aircraft Battle Damage Assessment Tool, (Aircraft Battle Damage Repair (ABDR))

    SBC: OPEN SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF05257

    Many of the engineering tasks necessary for adequate Aircraft Battle Damage Repair Assessment are currently being performed manually. These manual engineering calculations can be arduous, time consuming, and error prone. Periodic turnover of ABDR personnel exacerbates this challenge and highlights the need for a tool that can both assist with the operational aspects of ABDR engineering and act as ...

  8. 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. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...
