  1. Thermally Conductive Structural 2D Composite Materials

    SBC: Performance Polymer Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I Small Business Technology Transition (STTR) program will develop and demonstrate a thermally conductive structural two-dimensional (2D) graphite fiber reinforced hybrid matrix composite material with a through-thickness thermal conductivity of at least 20 W/m & #8729;K. This novel structural prepreg material will be developed through engineering of an optimal fiber ...

  2. Electrostatically Flocked Graphite Fiber Interface for Thermally Conductive Structural 2D Laminate Graphite Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: EY TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the EY Technologies proposal is to develop a graphite fiber interface on the surface of a 2D graphite unidirectional tape to enhance the thermally conductive and structural properties on all axis of a composite, with emphasis in enhancing the Z-axis. Currently, industry has not been able to make 2D laminate composite from unidirectional materials that simultaneously ...

  3. Novel Materials In-Situ Ablation and Thermal Sensing

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to design and fabricate multi-signal in-situ ablation sensors based on an acoustic transducer system, thermal measurement system (i.e., either photonic technology or in-situ thermal sensors based on ultra small thermocouples), and fast inverse heat transfer algorithms. This project will use the following approaches: Utilize commercially available opt ...

  4. Novel Materials for In-Situ Ablation Sensing

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: In order to achieve precise guidance, navigation and control in re-entry vehicles, aerodynamic shape must be accurately known throughout the flight trajectory. For this Phase I program an ultrasonic-based technique for real-time, non-intrusive (5 KHz) measurement of recession during ablation will be developed. The system combines the elements of ultrasonic thickness gauging technology w ...

  5. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  6. Adaptive Compressed Sensing for Mission Prioritized Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Leskiw Associates            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) of complex systems is challenging in many respects. Vast amounts of data are typically generated, which need to be transmitted, stored, and analyzed. Traditionally, such testing has been"stove-piped,"with the data in one domain collected and analyzed independently of the others. Nowadays, however, T & E activities are being integrated. And dynamical a ...

  7. Highly-Scalable Computational-Based Engineering Algorithms for Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: RNET and The Ohio State University propose to use algorithmic modifications and multi-level parallelization techniques and tools to improve the scalability of the CFD/CSD codes relevant to the DoD/AF (e.g., CREATE/Kestrel). The linear system solver is expected to be a primary bottleneck in aero-line/aero-elastic CFD and CSD codes. RNET and its subcontractors will explore effectiv ...

  8. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. and Princeton University propose to develop a computational framework for accurately and efficiently modeling the full set of physics associated with aircraft operations. The critical attributes of the proposed framework are accuracy, computational efficiency, and inclusiveness. More accurate computational models will support higher fidelity analysis during the air ...

  10. Advanced Antireflective Coatings for Polycarbonate Lenses

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: Robust optical coatings are of great importance across a broad spectrum of applications. Hard, durable, stress-free coatings are needed and used in everything from ophthalmic polymers to infrared optics. One of the principal shortcomings of typical inorganic oxide, nitride, and sulfide coatings when applied to polymeric substrates is the large difference in the coefficient of thermal ...
