  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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. ATC Position Reports for Unmanned Aircraft (UA)

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071063

    For Phase II, Kutta leverages its experience in developing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) flight certifiable software and hardware to build an Air Traffic Control Reporting Schema (ATC-RS) solution. The resulting product provides real-time UAS position reports on the battlefield and in the National Airspace (NAS). The innovative ATC-RS product will assist the Air Force in increasing airspac ...

  10. Low Cost Precision Waterjet Machining of Grid Fins

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: AF071151

    Novel waterjet machining techniques are proposed to reduce the costs of grid fin manufacturing by 80% over conventional waterjets. Waterjets are well suited to the task of machining fins because they are a cold cutting process that will not cause thermal damage to the thin webs, they can achieve the tight tolerances and small corner radii and can be used on a wide range of candidate materials. The ...
