  1. Evaluation of Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines for Booster or Upper Stage Launch Vehicles: The Next Step Towards Flight Development

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF181030

    Having previously designed, built and successfully tested a Rotating Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE), GHKN Engineering proposes to evaluate the feasibility of RDRE technology for boost or upper stage propulsion for launch of small satellites to LEO. RDREs represent an innovative new rocket technology that harnesses the potential of continuous detonation combustion in elegant, compact, annular desi ...

  2. Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT)

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: AF171048

    This Phase II effort continues development of Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT). VIADUCT leverages recent advances in tensor decompositions as a form of unsupervised discovery and the proliferation of open source Big Data tools to address the lack of advanced analytics available to Air Force Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) analysts. This effo ...

  3. Non Destructive Trusted FPGA Verification

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF171068

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) can provide electronic system designs with a high degree of relatively inexpensive customization. Unfortunately, the fabrication facilities are located in untrusted facilities. This prevents their use in applications requiring a high degree of safety or security. Hidden functionality could potentially be inserted during manufacture. These Trojans can be used ...

  4. Automated ICBM wall thickness measurements

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: AF181009

    The degree of corrosion for steel wall enclosures, buildings, tanks, and pipes can be inferred by measuring the thickness of the steel .Standard practice is for inspectors to use hand-held ultrasonic instruments that require the application of a couplant for acceptable measurements.This practice is very slow and laborious.For silos, an autonomous wall climbing system is proposed that uses an EMAT ...

  5. Computational Corrosion Modeling for Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) / Aircraft Environment Tracking

    SBC: Adirondack Analytics            Topic: AF171095

    The Corrosion Rate Enabled Wash Cycle Updating Technique (CREWCUT) is designed to provide a conditioned-based approach to optimize aircraft and support equipment washing cycle practices, which are currently time-based. It is proposed as an enterprise information system that will automatically extract asset usage (e.g., aircraft flight and deployment history), correlate it to data representing the ...

  6. Energy Storage System

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF171064

    This project will develop and demonstrate a rechargeable Energy Storage System (ESS) that will interface directly into an adjustable frequency drive controlling a 100 HP 460 VAC 3 phase induction motor. The ESS must store enough energy to supply the existing motor/motor drive as it lifts and lowers a 14,000-lb. weight 180 3 times in succession. The ESS must integrate directly into an existing syst ...

  7. Corrosion Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) in Confined Access Areas

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: AF181045

    NDE corrosion monitoring of steel vessels, tanks, walls, and pipes involve steel thickness measurements, often with hand-held ultrasonic instruments that require the application of a couplant material, that isslow and labor intensive.For this confined space application,IEM proposes a Rapid Corrosion Inspector (RCI) that uses EMAT sensor technology with a build in machine vision camera system to au ...

  8. Structural Nuclear Effect Mitigation of Composite Aeroshells for Munitions for Air Platforms and Cruise Missile Systems

    SBC: Conductive Composites Company, L.L.C.            Topic: AF181048

    Next generation munition systems must be capable of mitigating a multitude of threats including ionizing nuclear radiation (i.e. X-ray, gamma, and neutron), electromagnetic threats, high-temperature environments, and other countermeasures such as high-power microwave (HPM). Conductive Composites Company (CCC) has a unique understanding of the problem and has spent the past three decades developing ...

  9. Kitware Image and Video Retrieval (KWIVER) Large Volume Motion Imagery (LVMI) Analytics

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    Large Volume Motion Imagery (LVMI) is currently collected in areas of US military operations to provide data for analysis of patterns of life and for forensic analysis of human activity in the form of vehicular track. The process for analyzing LVMI data is primarily a manual one, but the volume of data collected by LVMI sensors has far exceeded the ability of analysts to completely process; typica ...

  10. Simulation of Multiphase Interactions in Reactive Structural Materials

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF171082

    In Phase I we demonstrated implementation of simplified but reasonable physical models for mechanics, transport, damage/failure and multiphase chemical reactions for selected reactive structural materials (RSMs) in a multiscale simulation framework, allowing for the prediction of the behavior of RSMs and RSM-based devices under a range of loading conditions.Phase II efforts will concentrate on ide ...
