  1. Bio-Inspired Bone, Wing, Tail, and Muscle Structures for Morphing Aircraft

    SBC: Prioria Robotics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    ABSTRACT: Our focus in this proposal is to perform basic research to create bio-inspired 3-D morphing mechanical structures which are a gateway technology to enable true 3-D morphing flight. Prioria and Virginia Tech University will team to perform basic research into bio-inspired structure such as artificial bones/wings/feathers and artificial muscles. Prioria will establish technical feasibility ...

  2. Computation of Structural Energetic Materials Under Shock Loading: a Meso-Scale Framework

    SBC: Streamline Numerics, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT23

    Structural energetic materials or multifunctional energetic materials offer the ability to combine the high energy release rates of traditionalhigh explosives with structural strength. When successfully formulated therefore they can lead to light-weight, high-performance and hithertoinaccessible designs of munitions. The key feature of structural energetic materials (SEMs), perhaps even more so th ...

  3. Cryodeposit Mitigation and Removal Techniques for Radiometric Calibration Chambers

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Optical Sciences Corporation (OSC) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville"s Center for Applied Optics (UAH/CAO) will demonstrate the feasibility and present a plan for developing optical instrumentation for the monitoring, mitigation, and removal of cryodeposits accumulated on optical and mechanical surfaces in cryogenic-vacuum radiometric calibration chambers. OSC will investigat ...

  4. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T03

    Modern processor design is trending increasingly toward multicore architectures. This is problematic for programmers because writing a correct parallel program is known to be difficult compared to writing the equivalent sequential program. Additionally, a wide body of sequential code has already been developed that cannot exploit the power offered by these new cores because it was written in a s ...

  5. Development of a Rapidly Deployable Scaled Fighter for Aeroelastic Research

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT12

    ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...

  6. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  7. First-Principles-Based Framework for Discovery and Design of Sustainable Non-Rare-Earth High-Temperature Alloy Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    In this STTR Phase I project, CFD Research Corporation and University of Nebraska at Omaha will develop a preliminary computationally-driven first-principles framework for discovery and design of non-RE-containing alloys for high temperature applications. While rare-earth (RE) based alloys have played a pivotal role in modern defense and high-tech industry, sustainability of RE-based materials is ...

  8. Highly-Resolved Wall-Shear-Stress Measurement in High Speed Flows

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: AF14AT08

    The Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation (IC2), in partnership with the University of Florida (UF) and Innoveering, LLC, proposes to develop an innovative precision micro-scale surface-mountable sensor for measuring local wall shear stress in [a] high speed flow field (approximately 0.8 < M < 5) to enable characterization of critical boundary layer flows in ground and flight tests in response ...

  9. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the visible to mid-wave IR. EO/IR sensors have been very successful for terrain imaging from subsonic aircraft and from satellites. Imaging using these platforms has been studied extensively. EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the v ...
