  1. Field Mistuning Inspection Tool

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF05183

    Blade Diagnostics Corporation proposes to study the feasibility of developing a field mistuning tool and an associated approach for managing the mistuning problem in integrally bladed rotors (IBRs). The field inspection tool will determine the frequencies of individual blades in IBRs using the methods developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The tool will be a faster, automated version of ...

  2. Joint Systems Engineering Methodology (JSEM)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05071

    Systems Development (SD) processes demonstrate a need for improvement, particularly to increase the frequency with which systems succeed in real world settings. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) offers numerous principles, methods, and tools that are well-suited to addressing areas in which SD is currently most weak (e.g., handling complexity and supporting the design phase). In response to thi ...

  3. Cognitive Architecture Bridge (CAB)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05088

    Years of research in human behavior modeling have yielded a wide array of cognitive architectures. The most vital challenges confronting the field are to find an economical way to leverage the strengths of each of the multiple existing architectures and to facilitate and simplify the manner in which new cognitive models are produced, as well as to reduce the time entailed in their production. Req ...

  4. Cycles Of SiTuation Update with ModEls (COSTUME)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05104

    An extensible system for level 2 and 3 data fusion utilizing new classes of Behavioral, Situation and Threat Models will be developed. The framework for this system is based on a model of the human analytic process in which cycles of situation update and revision are performed as evidence arrives incrementally. We argue that people learn a combination of localized information, that we call a men ...

  5. Coupling of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Reentry Vehicle Surface Ablations, and In-Depth Conductions

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF05241

    The innovation for this Phase I program is the extension of the new Rocket Plume Flowfield Model (RPFM) to analyze Reentry Vehicle (RV) body flows. The Phase I effort provides the foundation for a highly optimized, fast-running Reentry Vehicle Flowfield Model (RVFM) for analysis of thermal protection systems (TPS). Many of the key features are already in place to expedite RV flow solutions (GUI, N ...

  6. Improved Modeling Tools for High Speed Reacting Flows

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF05194

    Recent work in high speed reacting flows has identified three areas in which model improvements are needed. (1) Multi-element grid adaptation for fuel injection problems - h-refinement (cell splitting) procedures being utilized in our grid adaptation tool, CRISPr, produce large meshes after several levels of refinement. Point redistribution (r-refinement) techniques based on moving mesh concepts c ...

  7. Algorithms for Hyper-spectral Image Processing

    SBC: DYNAMIC SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF05207

    Dynamic Sensors, Incorporated (DSI) proposes a superior approach to Algorithms for Hyper-spectral Image Processing for the problem of spatial-spectral-temporal measurements of transient phenomena. DSI will demonstrate a Machine Intelligent Processor (MIP) software tool for rapid identification of dynamic battlefield events. MIP is an image analysis approach that is based on a neurobiological mod ...

  8. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  9. Large Area Millimeter Wave Dosimetry

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: OSD04H05

    Active Denial Systems are non-lethal, counter-personnel directed energy weapons that project focused energy beams in the millimeter-wave spectrum to induce an avoidance response and repel individuals without injury. Calibration of such weapons requires accurately measuring millimeter-wave flux density over large areas at distances corresponding to the range of ADS weapons. To ensure that the beam ...

  10. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Aircraft Engines

    SBC: EXTRUDE HONE CORP.            Topic: AF05141

    Critical components for aircraft engines are forcing increasing demands for higher accuracy, advanced materials and smaller features to enable advanced designs. The proposed effort will examine the ability of short pulse laser machining to machine aerospace materials at an acceptable throughput rate with minimal subsurface damage. Materials to be investigated will include commonly used aerospace ...
