  1. Biologically Inspired Biologically Inspired Direct Adaptive Guidance and Control for High-Bandwidth Flight Systems

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The capability of biological flight systems to autonomously maneuver, track, and pursue evasive targets in a cluttered environment is vastly superior to current engineered systems. The proposed effort seeks to fully characterize the tracking, guidance andcontrol functions of one such biological system (the male flesh fly in pursuit of the female), and to use the developed understanding to improve ...

  2. On-Line Trajectory Optimization for Autonomous Air Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF02T002

    Successful operation of next-generation unmanned air vehicles will demand a high level of autonomy. Autonomous low-level operation in a high-threat environment dictates a need for on-board, robust, reliable and efficient trajectory optimization. The proposed effort will develop and demonstrate an innovative combination of traditional analytical and numerical solution procedures to produce effici ...

  4. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  6. Combustion-Based Actuator for Flow Control in Transonic Flight Applications

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03T014

    Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is lightweight, can be operated with passive fluidic valve ...

  8. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software

    SBC: CEM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T018

    Accurate numerical predictions of antenna performance on aircraft are important in many problems of avionics design and integration. In particular, such predictions are needed to determine optimal antenna placement on aircraft in order to achieve required coverage. The focus of this project is an investigation and development of new high-frequency computational methods and codes for accurate and e ...

  9. Rapid and Robust Dynamics-based Nondestructive Method to Monitor Structural Health

    SBC: Millennium Dynamics Corporation            Topic: AF04T016

    Phase I efforts have concluded in successful demonstration of the use of a Laser Doppler Vibrometer in detection of cracks in composite and metal test specimens. A Damage Index formulation based on the distributed strain energies associated with the dynamic response (low as well as high frequencies) has been shown to vividly indicate the presence, size, and orientation of a damage. Phase II effor ...

  10. Polarization Sensitive Bias-Selectable Dual-band Quantum Dot Detectors

    SBC: NDP Optronics LLC.            Topic: AF07T027

    The proposed innovation will prove the feasibility of developing a spectral tunable and polarization sensitive quantum dot (QD) based detector for the 2-14 micron range. The aim is to satisfy the U.S. Air Force (USAF) requirements for passive spectral and polarization sensing in the infrared range without external filtering components and polarizers. The approach is to start with a bias selectable ...
