  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Structural Directed Energy and Nuclear Effect Mitigation of Composite Aeroshells for Munitions

    SBC: Conductive Composites Company, L.L.C.            Topic: AF171109

    Next generation munition systems must be capable of operating in and mitigating a multitude of threats. These threats include intentional enemy electromagnetic countermeasures in contested environments, electromagnetic interference form a congested spectrum, as well as environmental threats (such as adverse weather) and even solar weather events and cosmic radiation. As diverse as these threats ar ...

  8. Thermal Modeling Base High-Temperature Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC) Structural Repair

    SBC: Convergent Manufacturing Technologies US Inc.            Topic: AF171112

    Lightweight Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) and metal structures in military and commercial aircraft, can often be subjected to complex damage requiring bonded repair. The current repair method involves time-consuming, costly, and often unreliable thermal surveys to control thermal uniformity which often results in tedious trial-and-error experimentation. Convergent Manufacturing Technologies US ...

  9. Robust Counter-small Unmanned Aerial System Solution

    SBC: Sarcos Group LC            Topic: AF162D001

    The focus of this Sequential Phase II effort is to build-out and harden the Counter-small Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-sUAS) solution developed in the preceding effort and implement refinements to make it deployment-ready.The solution will be applicable to the Air Force and will ultimately lead to a family of systems that can be used to protect friendly forces from small UAS threats.

  10. Millimeter-Wave Micro-SAR (MMW uSAR)

    SBC: Imsar LLC            Topic: AF161027

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) provides the capability to create high-resolution radar cross section (RCS) measurements of targets. Target data is obtained by measuring their signatures through an instrument grade SAR. The purpose of this effort is to integrate the Ka-band converter and antenna designs identified in the phase 1 effort into an instrument grade NSP-8D SAR pod and validate its perfor ...
