  2. Landing Gear Fatigue Model K Modification

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF161018

    Air Force landing gear systems are subjected to surface treatment processes (e.g., chrome plating, cadmium plating, anodizing) an indefinite number of times throughout their service life. During these processes, components are exposed to environments and chemicals which affect material surface conditions (e.g., roughness, residual stresses, microstructure) and reduce fatigue life. This reduction i ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Establishing and Maintaining Mission Application Trust in a Shared Cloud

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141040

    In December 2014, the DoD CIO directed that military services manage the migration of their respective applications from dedicated data centers owned and operated by the respective services, to the commercial cloud. This directive included processes and procedures to expedite the process and is a driving force behind the US Air Force (USAF) data center consolidation initiative. Consequently, the U ...

  7. TeleSculptor:Semantic 3D Scene Modeling From High Zoom Reconnaissance Video

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF161151

    3D model generation from long-range ISR video is an important part of Special Forces operational planning. The current workflow is manual and time consuming. Existing automated algorithms for 3D reconstruction from high- and variable-zoom FMV are fraught with failure due to both practical issues and algorithm limitations that result in poor quality models. Kitware proposes TeleSculptor: Semantic 3 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
