  1. Digital Schlieren Photography


    The Holloman High Speed Test Track (HHSTT) currently uses photographic film based image motion compensation techniques to create Focusing Schlieren photos of high speed rocket sleds. Since film processing and film manufacturing continue to be phased out, this capability needs to be replaced by digital cameras. Current state-of-the-art digital cameras are sufficient to replace HHSTT framing camer ...

  2. Energy Deposition to Sculpt Upstream Densities and Control Common Aerovehicle, Strongly Reducing Drag and Ablation

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF071266

    A versatile technique will be applied to preferentially reduce drag on different CAV designs, serving as an innovative approach to control effectors. Once air is accelerated by a high speed vehicle, strong drag forces are generated which must be countered by control surfaces. This requires tremendous actuator force and ablation resistance by the surfaces. Our approach will control the distribution ...

  3. Situation Awareness and Impact Assessment for Cyber Network Defense

    SBC: ALTUSYS CORP.            Topic: AF071084

    The goal of this effort is to develop technologies enabling situational awareness for large-scale cyber network defense, assessing the impact of adversarial action against a network, and predicting future adversary attack strategy. Based on Phase I, we plan to develop, implement, and validate a prototype system. The prototype shall be sufficiently detailed to evaluate scalability, usability, and s ...

  4. Nanocomposite Metal-Based Ingredients for Use as Solid Propellant Burn Rate Modifiers

    SBC: REACTIVE METALS, INC.            Topic: OSD06PR2

    Phase I program showed feasibility of the reactive nanocomposite materials as burn rate modifiers for aluminized propellants. The compatibility of nanocomposite materials with propellant components was established. The increases in burning efficiency and burning rate of aluminum were achieved. Aluminum agglomeration was alleviated and the practically achieved energy density of propellants was i ...

  6. Spatially Registered Multispectral Polarimetric Sensor


    Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose this Phase II program to develop a unique Polarimetric Spectral Imager (PSI) that will be capable of simultaneously imaging multiple polarimetric components in the scene in multiple spectral bands. The approach will capitalize on the design concepts developed during the successful Phase I effort to create a 9-channel imager based on ...

  7. Demonstration of Inter-Turbine Burners for Part-Power Improvements

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD07ES9

    Conventional gas turbine engines are often optimized for a specific narrow range of the flight envelope and perform much less efficiently at off-design conditions. Introduction of an inter turbine burner (ITB) into a gas turbine design can add a level of adjustability to the engine performance that in turn provides improved operating efficiency over a wider range of the operating envelope. Durin ...

  8. Bulk Composite Materials for Detection of Gamma Radiation

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA08005

    The objective of this proposal is to develop enabling technology for the production of bulk scintillating nanocomposites that have gamma radiation detection properties of single crystal NaI but with the manufacturability of plastic scintillators. These performance criteria may be met by developing nanoparticle polymer composites with ultra-high nanoparticle loadings. These ‘ultra-composites’ w ...

  9. Voice Transformation and Detection

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDIA RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF071087

    Voice transformation is altering one person’s voice into another person’s voice in such a way that the source speaker’s words sound like they are the target speaker’s. In Phase I, we have studied various algorithms for voice transformation. The project has come to grips with the feasible methods for glottal source and vocal tract conversion algorithms; thus laying a good foundation upon wh ...

  10. Microsupercharger and/or Turbocharger for Small, Heavy Fuel Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: OSD08UM2

    Proposed is the preliminary design of an extremely small turbocharger sized for an 8 to 12 hp class engine. The entire unit will weigh roughly 240 grams. Design will incorporate pre-existing compressor and turbine designs for which hardware currently exists for Phase II test. Phase I will include design, fab and test of a 450,000 rpm, high durability, low-cost bearing system. Risk is medium to ...
