  1. Demonstration of Augmented UAV Flight Performance Using Nonthermal Plasma Actuators

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04166

    An effective surface flow controller for the manipulation of the properties of aerodynamic boundary layers, particularly the resulting body drag and airflow attachment, has been long sought after. The goal has always been a surface airflow controller that is able to manipulate the aerodynamic boundary layer while both saving fuel (reducing power consumption) and improving the aircraft performance ...

  2. New Decontamination for Aircraft Cargo Interior

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04063

    Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes to develop the Plasma Agent Neutralization Elimination (PLANE) System based upon its patented One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. When developed, this advanced design will serve as a system for the decontamination of aircraft and associated cargo. AGT has demonstrated the success of OAUGDP in decontaminating various substrates ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Multiaperture Optical Systems

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF05147

    We will develop a multi-aperture compound eye, with embedded processing, that conforms to the shape of a warhead, UAV, or other robot nose or front-end. The compound eye architecture will be an "array of arrays" structure, with individual elements comprised of low-resolution vision chips having on-chip mixed-signal processing circuitry. The compound eye structure will also include multiple process ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
