  1. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  2. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using The Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18BT029

    ATA Engineering has developed a wavelet-based damage squeezing methodology for generating optimally compressed fatigue test signals that produce an equivalent amount of fatigue damage in a predictably reduced amount of time compared to the baseline (uncompressed) signals. Fatigue-critical signal characteristics (e.g., magnitude, phase, frequency, and sequencing relationships) are identified in the ...

  3. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Laser guide stars (LGS) are artificial sources of light produced by laser-induced fluorescence from sodium atoms in the mesosphere between 85 km and 100 km altitude. The fluorescence can be detected on the ground with a telescope and used as a reference for compensating atmospheric aberrations in astronomical and space observations in conjunction with an adaptive optics system. Sodium LGS are vita ...

  4. Reconfigurable/Cognitive Optical Communications

    SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT010

    As the number of optical communication terminals proliferate there will be a need to have these terminals interoperate.  In the past, optical terminals were designed with a single purpose in mind.  New space constellations are requiring non-RF crosslink solutions.  It is expected that there will be a large number of both commercial and military systems providing crosslinks and space to earth li ...

  5. Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF19AT007

    Software that generates realistic images of models and outdoor scenes is crucial for many scientific and engineering endeavors. Applications include laser modeling for directed energy weapons and remote sensing simulation for sensor design and image analysis. In Phase I, we developed the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING) synthetic scene generation platform. The Phase I RING prototy ...

  6. Three-Dimensional Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM) Phase II

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: AF19AT005

    Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system.  Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target.  In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction.  Further, atmospheric turbulence scint ...

  7. Mid-Infrared Laser Absorption Spectroscopy for Multi-Parameter Rotating Detonation Analysis

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT011

    New, innovative laser spectroscopy technology will be developed for performance quantification and combustion characterization in a Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE). The effort will push the state of the art in tunable laser absorption spectroscopy to enable fast time response diagnostics of the extreme pressure and temperature conditions of an RDRE.

  9. Further Experimental Validation of a Fluid-Structure-Material Interaction (FSMI) Modeling and Simulation Toolset

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    ATA Engineering, Inc. (ATA), partnered with a nonprofit research institution, CUBRC, Inc., (CUBRC), proposes a Phase II STTR project to further develop and continue validating a novel multiphysics simulation technology. The project team will implement the technology in a fluid-structure-material interaction (FSMI) software toolset that incorporates mutual interactions between aerodynamics and stru ...

  10. Resilient Control Electronics

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA17T003

    As the orbital space around the earth gets more and more crowded with civilian and military reconnaissance, weather, tracking, communication, and navigation satellites - civilian and military users become increasingly dependent on the services provided by these spacecraft. This situation increases the possibility of offense actions against some or all of these spacecraft. The possibility calls for ...
