  1. A Compact Full Motion Video Hyperspectral Measurement System for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF171130

    Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) platforms fit into the USAF Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance strategy by providing local persistence, operation in contested environments, and low probability of detection. SUAS gimbal performance is typically limited to full color full motion video, limiting target detection and identification information available to image analysts and detecti ...

  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. Low Hyrdrogen Embrittlement (LHE) Brush Plating Chemistries for Cadmium (Cd) Replacement

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF171093

    Electrolytic cadmium (Cd) coatings topped by a hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] conversion coating post-treatment are the standard method used to protect and repair critical aircraft components (like landing gear). Cadmium coatings have excellent properties and have been used for over 50 years. Unfortunately, cadmium is regulated by OSHA and EPA; health and environmental concerns (worker exposure, haz ...

  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. Improved Manufacturing and Design of Reserve Battery Liquid Electrolyte Delivery Systems

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF171106

    In Phase I, ADA demonstrated key design and manufacturing aspects and thus, the feasibility of the aforementioned, liquid reserve batteries technical discriminators. We demonstrated the ability to rapidly (

  8. Improved Data Fusion Techniques for Space-Based Remote Sensing

    SBC: Cosmic Advanced Engineered Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF171069

    The Open Voxel Fusion Engine (OpenVFE) microservice solves the geometric aspects of correlating and fusing sensor observations from heterogenous sensor types, provides application programming interfaces (APIs) for integrating additional sensor inputs and data fusion routines (called fusion handlers), and integrates free and open source (FOSS) software components for improved message routing and qu ...

  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 ...
