  1. Machine Learning of Part Variability for Predictive Maintenance

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

    High Cycle Fatigue (HCF) characterization and maintenance accounts for a significant portion of the overall life cycle cost of most military propulsion systems.  A key variable that drives HCF margin is dynamic response which is directly related to the geometry of each part.  This is especially true of integrally bladed rotors (IBRs, or blisks).  It has been well established that HCF is a proba ...

  3. Assembly of Topological Qubits into a Register

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Quantum information technology will become a key enabler of future Air Force superiority. Topological insulator qubits are inherently stable and fault-tolerant because they exploit local topological symmetries and global boundary conditions of chalcogenide materials to yield unique, emergent quantum cooperative states. Wake Forest University and Streamline Automation have been working collaborativ ...

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

    SBC: Non-Contact Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Advanced Air Force turbine engines with integrated engine exhaust systems require diagnostic flow measurements. Integration of these systems into altitude test cells creates problems with T&E requirements such as impingement problems, exhaust cooling spray blowback, acoustic emission issues and limited space for measurement systems. Propulsion system analysts need better understanding of low aspec ...

  5. Satellite Constellations for Entanglement-Based Time Distribution

    SBC: Speqtral Quantum Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF20AT001

    This project examines the feasibility of using a space-based quantum network for secure and accurate time transfer. The design and analysis of a space based quantum network that can support time transfer is expected to show that a relatively small modification of the current designs for quantum payloads could provide large benefits in the form of a highly accurate, non-spoofable time transfer inf ...

  6. Compact, high-performance optical clockwork for quantum timing

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF20AT001

    Vescent Photonics, LLC (Vescent) in collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL) proposes to develop a compact, low-phase-noise optical frequency comb (OFC) stabilized to a novel, fiber-based, ultra-narrow linewidth reference laser that will meet the Air Force’s needs for a high performance, fieldable clock. OFCs are a core tool of quantum timing, enabling a range of new technologies criti ...

  7. Robust and portable optical oscillators with 10^-15-level stability

    SBC: Stable Laser Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF20AT001

    We propose to develop optical oscillators with instabilities in the 10^-15 decade suitable for a range of out-of-the-laboratory applications, including remotely located stations, moving vehicles and space platforms. Cavity-stabilized optical oscillators provide orders-of-magnitude better stability than current rf and microwave oscillators, and are essential for optical atomic clocks. However, they ...

  8. Robust and low-SWaP Laser Sources for Optical Atomic Clocks

    SBC: Stable Laser Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF20AT001

    This proposal will develop a monolithic, robust, low size, weight and power, 1 GHz repetition rate femtosecond oscillator and frequency comb for microwave generation from optical atomic clocks. The oscillator has been tested in the laboratory, being constructed using prototype bonding methods. The results have been exceptional with low phase noise, long lock times with low bandwidth control loo ...

  9. Tunable Bioinspired Spatially Varying Random Photonic Crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Naturally occurring periodic nanostructures have long been of interest due to their striking optical effects and potential biological roles. They have been recognized not only as interesting curiosities but potential design inspirations that can lead to improvements in biochemical sensors, laser surgery, photovoltaics, and other mission-critical applications. This work will focus on one such appli ...

  10. Nonlinear Phased Array System for Detection/Imaging of fatigue damage precursors and assessment of remaining useful life

    SBC: Metallurgical Acoustic Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Despite decades of experimental and theoretical studies cyclic fatigue failure remains one of the most critical challenges for engineering as it can occur without any indication of impending failure. More than half of mechanical in service failures are due to cyclic fatigue resulting in unanticipated and significant costs. Metallurgical Acoustic Research Solutions, LLC (MARS, LLC) in collaboration ...
