  1. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Sage Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: The proposed VPHS (Vision Processor for Helmet Systems) is an advanced technology image processing engine that is designed to provide the image processing requirements of helmet mounted imagery systems. The VPHS will input high resolution image data from imaging sensors, process that data to yield enhanced visualization and output the imagery to operator displays. The VPHS will employ im ...

  2. Brahms Contested Airspace Simulation Testbed (Brahms-CAST)

    SBC: Aqru Research and Technology, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: Remarkable advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems integration are providing aircrew with cockpit automation systems of unprecedented sophistication. Onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out pilot commands, and advise the pilot (onboard or remote) as to aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots ...

  3. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Methodology for prediction of soot build-up in liquid film-cooled rocket engines will be incorporated into the CRUNCH CFD code, using a reduced-mechanism pyrolysis model and soot formation model developed at University of Virginia. A companion experimental program will be conducted at University of Virginia to collect data for calibration of the pyrolysis models for conditions and fuels ...

  4. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  5. Plasma Generator for Controlled Enhancement of the Ionosphere

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: The proposed program is a joint effort between General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) and Drexel University. The proposed concept for Plasma Generation is based on the use of highly exothermic condensed phase reactions yielding temperatures considerably higher than the boiling points of candidate metal elements with residual energy to maximize their vapor yield and, with high probability to enter ...

  7. DIMAGIC: Data Infrastructure for Materials Genome with Innovation and Certification

    SBC: MATERIALS GENOME INC            Topic: AF15AT30

    ABSTRACT: Present CALPHAD software tools do not address data heterogeneity and fragmentation challenges in a way conducive to the feasible development and maintenance of high-quality databases of more than, perhaps, 5 or 6 components, yet alloy systems of commercial interest can easily reach 12-15 components. We propose to use a newly developed thermodynamic software engine and new algorithms to d ...

  8. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: Wireless communications, radar, and biological detection require electronic components operating in the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. GaAs metal semiconductor field effect transistor and nanoscale CMOS technologies have demonstrated high frequency capabilities and will likely benefit from future material systems and device architectures. The cost of exploring this wide design space c ...

  9. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate a software package based on coupled Fokker-Planck (FP) - Fermi Kinetic Transport (FKT) models and full-wave Maxwell electromagnetic (EM) solver to accurately predict semiconductor device behavior from dc up through the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. The FP model provides accurate non-equilibrium occupation functions for hot electrons with real ...

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

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

    ABSTRACT: Analysis and Applications and Associates, Inc. (AAA) proposes to develop software that evaluates effects of the hypersonic flow environment on electro-optic/infrared optical systems and vehicles for specific hypersonic flight profiles. We propose a high fidelity definition of the near-field flow, using the latest CFD and turbulence modeling technologies, to determine the environment from ...
