  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. Self-Calibrating, Conformal Nanomembrane based Pressure Sensors for Embedded Sensing Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF18AT002

    This DOD Phase II STTR program would develop self-calibrating, conformal nanomembrane based pressure sensors for embedded sensing applications, using silicon on insulator techniques in combination with our pioneering nanocomposite materials. Such low-modulus, conformal nanomembrane sensor skins with integrated self-calibration, interconnect elements and electronic devices can be applied to new or ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Urbanscape: Single Shot Multi-Task 3D Reconstruction

    SBC: Dzyne Technologies Incorporated            Topic: DTRA18B001

    Hazard assessment tools that model the transport and dispersion of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) materials through urban areas are only as good as the 3D models that inform the physics model. Maintaining accurate, up-to-date 3D models of urban areas is challenging. Even in the commercial world, urban construction and demolition may result in the models created a ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Satellite Constellations for Entanglement-Based Time Distribution

    SBC: Xairos Systems, 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 ...
