  1. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT029

    Optical limiters (OL) protect sensitive optical and electronic devices from laser-induced damage. The existing passive OL utilize nonlinear optical materials transmitting low-intensity light, while blocking laser radiation with intensity exceeding certain limiting threshold (LT). The common problem with the existing OL is that, at any particular frequency range, the choice of suitable nonlinear ...

  2. USV Based Telemtry Collection System


    Accurate Automation Corporation proposes to develop a system concept for a USV based telemetry collection system to support hypersonic flight tests over water. The conceptual system will be evaluated for technical risk and feasibility as well as economic viability. A detailed conceptual design and operation guide for the system will be provided to support the development and deployment of a test s ...

  3. Prediction of Stress Corrosion Cracking by Nonlinear Ultrasonic Guided Wave Technology

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF161017

    Reliable diagnosis of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in aircraft components at an early stage is critical for maintaining mission readiness and safety. One of the primary challenges associated with maintenance management for aircraft components is that SCC does not grow at a steady rate over the life of the component, but rather the majority of the remaining useful life is spent before macroscale ...

  5. Reduction/Elimination of Unsteady Aerodynamic Loads on Model and Balance Support Systems in Large Scale Wind Tunnels

    SBC: FICS, LLC            Topic: AF171008

    Wind tunnel testing of high performance aerodynamic systems, including force and moment measurements (of larger models), often involve unsteady oscillatory loads which may damage the expensive balance and would also normally impact the data accuracy and a

  6. Satellite Identification, Tracking, and Health (SITH)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF171026

    The Air Force requires 24-hour non-interrupted satellite tracking. The ability to identify satellite orbits and deviations from them provides the Air Force with key intel that could be used to identify malfunctioning satellites, prevent collisions, or ev

  9. S-RAM Energy Recovery Compressor for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems (TMSs)

    SBC: S-Ram Dynamics, LLC            Topic: AF171057

    S-RAM Dynamics (S-RAM) proposes to design, fabricate, test, and commercialize a high-performance axial piston transcritical CO2 energy recovery compressor (ERC) to support next-generation aircraft thermal management systems for the U.S. Air Force and commercial applications. The S-RAM ERC will be developed and commercialized with the support of the Rolls-Royce Thermal Management System team and Pu ...

  10. Gemini: Weather CubeSat using MODIS Bands

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: AF171073

    The upcoming gap in satellite weather data may be a significant crisis in the early 2020s, with the cancellation of the NPOESS satellite program, and the loss of the DMSP-19 Satellite. Weather sources resources are stretched thin, which may make the US reliant on foreign weather data. We propose a new Cubesat satellite called Gemini, which would be a pathfinder satellite for an Operational Respon ...
