  1. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    The objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling an a ...

  2. Penetration Survivable Advanced Energetics

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF081045

    The objective of this work is to provide guidance to explosive formulators and facilitate the development of improved penetrator explosives. Because of the complexity of these materials, it is difficult to relate parameters controllable during formulation to desirable properties in the final product. Formulation variations are limited to modifying the individual constituents in a formulation, thei ...

  3. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic photovoltaic (OPV) solar cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend in turn on carrier mobility and the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to enabling the better OPV cells from leading OPV makers to reach >10% efficiencies, whether

  4. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...

  5. ANTHROPOMORPHIC CUTANEOUS TACTILE SENSING ON DEXTEROUS MECHANICAL HANDS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-EFFECTORS HAVE PROVIDED PRESENT DAY ROBOTS AND TELEOPERATOR SYSTEMS WITH THE ABILITY TO DO MANY INTRICATE TASKS, TRUE MANIPULATOR DEXTERITY WILL ONLY COME THROUGH THE USE OF MULTI-FINGERED ANTHROPOMORPHIC MECHANICAL HANDS. STABLE GRASPING OF IRREGULAR OBJECTS, OBJECT RECOGNITION, PRECISION ASSEMBLY, AND PERFORMANCE OF MANY INTRICATE TASKS NOW CONFINED TO HUMANS WILL ...

  6. THE ENZYMATIC DEGRADATION OF POLYURETHANE PAINT BY SUBSTRATE ADDITION

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ENZYMES HAVE BEEN USED IN INDUSTRY, FOR ANALYTICAL PURPOSES AND IN MEDICINE SINCE THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. THE LOW CONCENTRATION OF ENZYMES WHICH ARE NORMALLY PRODUCED BY WILD STRAINS, HOWEVER, WAS A CONSIDERABLE HINDRANCE FOR NEW RESEARCH AND APPLICATION UNTIL RECENT ADVANCES IN FERMENTATION CONDITIONS, GENETICS AND IMMOBILIZATION PROCESSES. THESE BREAKTHROUGHS HAVE ALLOWED THE ENZYME TECHNOLOGY ...

  7. A BIOLOGICAL MODEL OF THE EFFECTS OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES

    SBC: Topical Testing, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE BASIC NATURE OF MILITARY OPERATIONS, IT IS SOMETIMES NECESSARY FOR AIR FORCE PERSONNEL TO BE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS IN THEIR WORK ENVIRONMENT EITHER AS A PROTRACTED LOW-LEVEL EXPOSURE OR AS A HIGH-LEVEL, ACUTE EXPOSURE. THE APPLICATION HEREIN PROPOSES TO USE THE ANTERIOR EYE (CORNEA AND CONJUNCTIVA) AND ITS SENSORY INNERVATION AS AN ASSAY OF TOXIC EFFECTS. THE ANTERIOR EYE HAS UNIQU ...

  8. COPPER INFILTRATED GRAPHITE FOR IMPROVED BRAZED JOINTS

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FIRST WALL STRUCTURES FOR FUTURE FUSION REACTORS ARE LIKELY TO CONSIST OF GRAPHITE OR CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITE BRAZED TO AN ACTIVELY COOLED METAL SUBSTRATE. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES A TECHNIQUE FOR VACUUM INFILTRATING ONE SIDE OF THEGRAPHITE WITH MOLTEN COPPER. SUCH INFILTRATED MATERIALS SHOULD BE MORE EASILY BRAZED THAN GRAPHITE OR CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES. THE RESULTING JOINTS ALSO SHOULD HAVE I ...

  9. VERTICAL SEISMIC PROFILING WHILE DRILLING

    SBC: Utah Geophysical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERTICAL SEISMIC PROFILES (VSPS) PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR MORE PRECISELY INTERPRETING INTO GEOPHYSICAL SEISMIC DATA, AS WELL AS GEOPHYSICAL INFORMATION BEYOND THE LIMITS OF THE WELLBORE. THE HIGH DEGREE OF REDUNDANCY NECESSARY TO ACQUIRE THIS TYPE OF DATA, AND THE COMPLICATIONS THAT CAN ARISE FROM PLACING GEOPHONES DOWN A BOREHOLE MAKE DATA ACQUISITION EXPENSIVE AND TEDIOUS. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES U ...
