  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Zenith Aerospace Inc.            Topic: AF19CT010

    The objective of this proposal is to investigate the feasibility and to increase the awareness of the potential stakeholder with Air Force on the technology of a multifunctional structural battery that was originally developed by a Team at Stanford University. The multifunctional structural battery embeds Li-ion battery materials into high-strength composites material. The structural battery not o ...

  2. Super-High-Resolution, Distributed Photonic Sensors for Aerospace Platforms

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19CT010

    IFOS and STTR partner Stanford University propose an innovative fiber-optic sensor array leveraging the latest advances in slow-light fiber Bragg gratings (SL-FBG). SL-FBGs substantially improve upon the sensitivity of commercially proven conventional FBGs (C-FBG) by more than 3 orders of magnitude and can be interrogated at megahertz rates. SL-FBG differ from C-FBG in their refractive index modul ...

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: RICLAB LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Evidence shows that dielectric coatings have tens of PPM of optical scattering, and excess thermal noise. We believe that crystallites that naturally form in the evaporated films cause both negative effects and that nanolayering can impede crystallite formation. In this initial phase we will test if nanolayering retards crystallization (depress crystallite formation) with one or two material pairs ...

  4. Advanced Measurement Capability of Turbine Engine Exhaust and Jet Flows through Non-intrusive Methods

    SBC: Non-Contact Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    The United States Air Force (USAF) at Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) has identified a need for improved turbine engine exhaust flow measurement. Non-Contact Technologies, LLC, (NCT) seeks to apply research techniques developed by the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) for non-intrusive diagnostics of exhaust and gas flows from turbine engines during ground testing. The U ...

  5. Assembly of Topological Qubits into a Register

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Quantum computer technology is critical and strategic to the Air Force. Quantum computer technology based on topological qubits is inherently stable and resistant to errors because it exploits local topological symmetries and global boundary conditions of chalcogenide materials to yield unique, emergent quantum cooperative signatures. Wake Forest University and Streamline Automation have been work ...

  6. Portable 3D ultrasound technology for diagnosis of traumatic brain injury (TBI)

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF19CT010

    UtopiaCompression Corporation (UC) with its academic partner Augusta University and hardware collaborator URSUS Medical will establish and demonstrate robustness of a low-cost, portable 3D ultrasound (US) system for imaging of the optic nerve sheath (ONS). The 3D ONS models generated from US images aid in screening of susceptible mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) that results in temporary and sub ...

  7. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: BDYWR, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Real Time pilot health/performance monitoring requires body worn physiological sensors to communicate their data to a monitoring device in the cockpit. Traditionally Radio Frequency (RF) based wireless communication would be used in these scenarios. However, these RF waves can potentially affect critical radio communication between the airplane and ground. Electro Quasi-Static Human Body Communica ...

  8. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: QARDIAN LABS, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Heart disease is the leading cause of death, and experts estimate that approximately half of all heart attacks and strokes occur in people who have not been flagged as 'at risk.' To this end, we investigate the potential of using data analysis, and in particular the design and use of deep neural networks (DNNs) for detecting heart disease based on routine clinical data. Our main contribution is th ...

  9. Machine Learning of Part Variability for Predictive Maintenance

    SBC: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN & ANALYSIS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Extensive testing at substantial cost is a major part of military propulsion development programs. These programs involve numerous component and engine tests aimed at producing safe and reliable engines. Despite these efforts, engines still experience unexpected failures. Geometric variability of parts within design tolerances is a well-known source of uncertainty in overall reliability. USAF sust ...

  10. Duocel Foam Liner for Multi-function Turbofan Improvement

    SBC: ERG Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    A Duocel® metal foam liner is a compelling single-component multi-function solution capable of reducing cost, weight, and complexity of aircraft turbofan engines. Conventionally available material options require the use of three separate single-function solutions for acoustic liner, blade-containment, and heat shield components, which limits the design space for more fuel-efficient, quieter, and ...
