  1. Real-Time Sensor Data Processing and Compression Performed On-board Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: AF131132

    ABSTRACT: The K-128 co-processor leverages insights from neuroscience to achieve superior performance. Unlike previous efforts along those lines, our approach is to create a software programmable co-processor that runs existing applications. One of the most salient characteristics of such a co-processor is its power efficiency: not just a few percent more efficient than a traditional processor, b ...

  2. Graphene Memory Device

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF121055

    ABSTRACT: The Department of Defense requires a reliable non-volatile radiation hardened memory for Space and Airborne platform applications. MGRAM, a form of graphene and magnetic memory, promises to satisfy these requirements and to provide a solution path to achieving low cost, high reliability solid state drives for personal computers and systems. MGRAM is based upon a nano scaled bar magnet w ...

  3. Modular Flexible Weapons Integration

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF141076

    CRAFT Tech proposes the development of an innovative design optimization tool called"AeroRCS"which will simultaneously solve for both aerodynamic performance as well as electromagnetic reflectivity (Radar Cross Section). When operated in an automated environment, AeroRCS will intelligently"morph"and steer the shape to converge on an optimal solutions. AeroRCS will be demonstrated by developing ...

  4. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  5. Joint Tactical Air Control Training with Intelligent CGFs (JTACTICs): Improved Computerized Ground Forces (CGF) for Close Air Support Training

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF141020

    ABSTRACT: One of the key lessons learned from operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom is that Close Air Support (CAS) is assuming an increasingly important role for US military planners and field commanders. Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) play a critical role across all Services in bringing air superiority to bear in engaging targets of opportunity in close proximity to friendly f ...

  6. Enhancing Real Time Situational Awareness with Latent Relationship Discovery

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF141055

    ABSTRACT: It is challenging for analysts and operators to maintain effective situational awareness for the task at hand in an environment of ubiquitous and seemingly unending data spanning text, video, and other mediums. Intuidex proposes research and development of a solution to this challenge that addresses two important analyst missions by supporting four common use cases. The innovation of ...

  8. Standard Test Method for Prepreg Resin Impregnation Level

    SBC: The Ultran Group            Topic: AF141165

    ABSTRACT: Carbon fiber reinforcements pre-impregnated with resin (prepregs) are growing as a base material for many aerospace products. As such, prepreg quality is ever important and a key quality metric is its level of impregnation (LOI). However, high tolerance of prepreg LOI is difficult for manufacturers to maintain and is further complicated as industry-wide standards do not exist for accura ...

  9. Standard Inline Non-destructive Determination of Prepreg Resin Impregnation Level

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF141165

    ABSTRACT: Incomplete and inconsistent impregnation of fiber beds in composite material manufacture jeopardizes the performance of multiple aircraft platforms and substantially increases acquisition and sustainment costs for the Air Force. Current test methodologies are inadequate to address this problem as they cannot be conducted during manufacture, exhibit poor accuracy and repeatability, and ...

  10. High Accuracy, Turnkey, Minimum Hot Surface Ignition Test Apparatus

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141222

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop and demonstrate a test apparatus for determining the minimum hot surface ignition (HSI) temperature of flammable liquids. Flammable liquids leaking onto hot surfaces, such as those in an aircraft engine bay, present fire hazards. To properly assess and mitigate these hazards, an in depth knowledge of th ...
