  1. Adaptation of fixture-less?extrusion machining technology for AF use

    SBC: Fairmount Technologies LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    XtruMach (XM) is a flow type CNC machining center that profiles, drills and thins extruded parts without part-specific holding fixtures.  Tooling avoidance will enable rapid organic manufacturing, improved depot productivity and increased asset availability. FT will work with WR-ALC and OC-ALC personnel to demonstrate the use of XM in the depots to machine airframe structural components.   OC- ...

  2. Additive Manufacturing of Inorganic Transparent Materials for Advanced Optics

    SBC: Product Innovation And Engineering, LLC            Topic: N19BT028

    The goal of the Phase I project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an AM process capable of depositing the required optical properties, full densification, and smooth surface finish through modeling the glass AM processing, developing the path planning for printing freeform optics, and evaluating the quality of the printed freeform optics with the proposed FFL . The specific objectives of the pr ...

  3. Advanced Combat Simulation for More Effective Anti-Terrorist Operations

    SBC: DECISIVE POINT LLC            Topic: AF07T023

    Ongoing anti-terrorist and counter-insurgency operations in Iraq following the lightning conventional war of spring 2003 highlight the fact that war is seldom as simple or as quickly resolved as we expect-or hope-it to be. Even more importantly, they remind us that no enemy is truly beaten unless and until they accept that they are. Although the U.S. military succeeded in an impressively rapid and ...

  4. Advanced Silicon Diode Switch for HPRF Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT023

    Silicon-based photoconductive switch technology, despite its widespread industrial use, has not reached its limit in repetition-rate nor recovery-time. While traditional Si-PCSS systems have demonstrated poor recovery time (tens to hundreds of microseconds), new understanding in absolute photo-carrier generation and the resultant reduced sweepout time, provides one means to get beyond this seeming ...

  5. Advanced Silicon Diode Switch for HPRF Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT023

    The ultimate goal of the phase II effort is to build Si-based PCSS 10kV-modules and compare coupling of those modules to different microwave radiation technologies. The microwave radiating technologies include at least non-linear transmission lines and direct drive antenna; comparisons and system-level tradeoffs will be identified through normalized field measurements.

  6. Aero-Optic Distortion Minimization using Active Flow Control


    "A system that integrates the use of zero frequency and high frequency flow control is proposed to reduce aero-optic distortions by minimizing large-scale shear layer structures. An important measure of performance for a tactical laser system is theintensity of the beam on a target. The performance of these systems is degraded by index of refraction variations introduced by large-scale flow stru ...

  7. AFFF Disposal

    SBC: Liquid Carbonic L.L.C.            Topic: AF17BT001

    Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is the water-based firefighting agent of choice in military and civilian applications.No satisfactory disposal method has been identified.Liquid Carbonic proposes a treatment for AFFF that will also work for other polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and their derivatives.The strength of the C-F bond is the ultimate problem in disposing of PFCs and residues.The very se ...

  8. AFFF Disposal

    SBC: Liquid Carbonic L.L.C.            Topic: AF17BT001

    The Air Force and other government and private entities must safely dispose of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Waste (AFFF).The waste is problematic due to a high fluorine content.The thermal decomposition of AFFF by supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) was accomplished in a continuous flow reactor during Phase I demonstrating >99% AFFF conversion efficiency.Phase II will build on the bench-scale work b ...

  9. AI/ML Techniques for ADS-B to Support Base Security and Defense


    We are developing a low-cost, ad-hoc ground network of sensors to monitor air traffic around specific areas, for example, to support security and defense around air bases and other installations. This can be seen an air traffic monitoring system in a box, which can be rapidly deployed in an ad-hoc manner, both on the ground and on aerial (manned and unmanned) nodes. The system generates millions ...

  10. Airborne SARS-CoV-2 sterilization via high-power UV-C LED arrays

    SBC: NITRIDE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Nitride Solutions intends to determine the commercial and technical feasibility for design of UV-C LED components for disinfection of SARS-CoV-2 for commercial and residential HVAC units. We believe that UV-C LEDs are the best sterilization solution to the issue of aerosol spread in HVAC systems, replacing current mercury-based lamps. NSI will use its expertise in UV-C LEDS, optical design and ref ...
