  1. Biologically-inspired Integrated Vision System

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versions o ...

  2. New Paradigms in High Pressure Combustion Dynamics Prediction and Control

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT15

    ABSTRACT:In this project we seek to transition major recent developments in the mathematics of model reduction to industrial grade computing applications in liquid rocket combustion instability. From the mathematical side, we are interested in unsteady nonlinear dynamical systems which exhibit limit-cycle behavior and large oscillations and potentially discontinuous solutions. From the application ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  7. Highly Repetitive Power Modulators for Mobile Applications

    SBC: Transient Plasma Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT07

    Experimental data from a number of DoD supported research programs have indicated that electrical systems capable of producing highly repetitive bursts of high voltage, fast risetime pulses are a critical enabling technology for applications tied to nonequilibrium physical processes, such as combustion, boundary layer flow, and the generation of high power EM waves. Recognizing the important role ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT07

    In this program, HyPerComp and University of Michigan have teamedtogether to develop a high-order grid generator for Euler and viscousmeshes. The grid generator is based on HyPerComps successful generalpurpose CAD2Mesh software and is being integrated with HyPerCompsHDphysics and U. Michigans XFlow DG high-order solvers. High-order gridgeneration methods are being implemented to accurately capture ...
