  1. Scaled Transonic Dynamic Aeroelasticity Through Wind Tunnel Testing (ST-DAWTT)

    SBC: CREATIVE AERO ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: AF12BT12

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II of this research, Creative Aero Engineering Solutions (CAES) and its academic partner University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) will design, fabricate, and test a semispan model based on the novel aeroelastic models analyzed in Phase I. The objectives are to develop a physics-based understanding of transonic aeroelasticity near Mach 1, and to provide high-fidelity experime ...

  2. Printable Integrated Photonic Devices

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF11BT05

    ABSTRACT: aBeam Technologies, Inc. proposes a new printing technology for fabricating photonic devices. This nanofabrication process could potentially reduce to a single step, the fabrication of photonic crystals by direct imprinting on inorganic materials. The method is low cost and suitable for large-scale areas. In Phase I, the demonstration of feasibility of the method provides the basis for ...

  3. MIMO Radar Clutter Modeling

    SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF11BT14

    ABSTRACT: We propose development of an efficient physics-based computational capability for simulation of complex MIMO radar clutter, with applicability to single- and multi-platform transmit-receive systems, which accounts accurately, on the basis of Maxwell's equations, for all relevant multi-path propagation and scattering effects. Our effort will enable simulation of scattering by realis ...

  4. Computational Model for Electrode Erosion by High-Pressure Moving Arcs

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF11BT25

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop theoretical models for electrode erosion in high-pressure arcs and incorporate them into computational tools for simulations of arc heaters. The complexity of the electrode material removal process is associated with the multi-phase nature of the arc-electrode interactions, melting and vaporization of the electrodes near the arc foot. Available mod ...

  6. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  7. Tool for Blade Stress Estimation during Multiple Simultaneous Vibratory Mode Responses

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT22

    ABSTRACT: NextGen Aeronautics, leveraging past experience in generating stress spectra from static and vibratory loads as well as knowledge of gas turbines, is proposing a method for estimating blade stresses from multiple vibratory loads in rotating systems from limited manufacturer data from Campbell diagrams and strain gage blade stresses. The method hinges on utilizing 3D parametric generic i ...

  10. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is to develop a satellite drag specification capability ...
