  1. A Decision Aid for a Surveillance Satellite Crew Shift Supervisor

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To be effective in today's threat environment, the Air Force's Global Engagement doctrine asserts that personnel be responsive, innovative, adaptable, and agile. This will be particularly important for the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Low CrewChief. The SBIRS Low Crew Chief will have to manage a team with frequently changing personnel, groups of personnel with different specializations, a ...

  2. A Linked Engineering Knowledge Base Tool-Set for Textile Composite Material Forms (MSC P11G26-105)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N/A

    It is expected that accelerated insertion of materials (AIM) will be facilitated through development of linked engineered material databases, that are capable of conducting quick virtual testing of new materials, that is supplemented by limited physicaltesting, rather than proceeding directly to complete experimental characterization. To address this need for reduced insertion time, Materials Sci ...

  3. A Linked Engineering Knowledge Base Tool-Set for Textile Composite Materials Forms (MSC P1G26-146)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N/A

    "It is expected that accelerated insertion of materials (AIM) will be facilitated through development of linked engineered material databases, that are capable of conducting quick virtual testing of new materials, that is supplemented by limited physicaltesting, rather than proceeding directly to complete experimental characterization. During Phase I of this program, Materials Sciences Corporatio ...

  4. Active Flow Control of Turbulence for Airborne Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    "The application of airborne Directed Energy (DE) weapons is under consideration for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) and Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles (UCAV). Intense turbulence is encountered along the beam propagation path in the aircraft nearfield, e.g.boundary layer, free shear layer, or wake. Flowfield turbulence creates a highly non-uniform and time-varying, three-dimensional, fluctuating dens ...

  5. Active Flow Control of Turbulence for Airborne Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    The application of airborne and ground-based high power lasers as Directed Energy (DE) weapons is under consideration for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). Depending upon the integration selected for the laser, varied forms of turbulence is encountered alongthe beam propagation path, e.g. turbulent boundary layer, free shear layer, or wake. Flowfield turbulence creates a highly non-uniform and time- ...

  6. Actively Cooled Power Converter Technology

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Emerging high power airborne weapon systems will require multi-megawatt electrical power at voltages approaching 100 kV. Although multi-megawatt airborne generators are currently under development, they will not be able to directly generate the very highvoltage(s) needed for some weapon systems. Power converter system development, in the past, has typically focused on power electronics but the p ...

  7. Adaptive Controls for Aero-Optics Compensation

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF06006

    MZA has teamed with Prof. Steve Gibson of UCLA to propose the development of adaptive wavefront reconstruction and jitter control techniques for the robust, high-bandwidth compensation of aero-optical effects. Through his work with AFRL, HEL JTO, and AFOSR, Prof. Gibson is on the forefront of adaptive control applied to atmospheric turbulence compensation. High-fidelity wave-optics simulations h ...

  8. Adaptive Decision Enabling and Performance Tracking

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "To be effective in today's threat environment, the Air Force Global Engagement doctrine instructs personnel to be responsive, innovative, adaptable, and agile. This will be particularly important for Space-Based Infrared System senior operationspersonnel. These personnel will be managing crews composed of frequently changing members with varied specializations performing new missions such as ti ...

  9. Adaptive Mesh Controller for Computational Analysis

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    Numerical simulation of store separation from weapons bays or wing pylons is made difficult by the need to move the computational mesh and provide adequate resolution of flow structures that are changing with time. Recent advances in unstructured gridmethods have demonstrated that an adaptive grid, which is coarsened and/or refined to accommodate the motion of the store, is a viable approach for ...

  10. Adaptive Mesh Controller for Computational Analysis

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    "Numerical simulation of store separation from weapons bays or wing pylons is made difficult by the need to move the computational mesh and provide adequate resolution of flow structures that are changing with time. The Phase I achievements demonstratethat an adaptive grid, which is coarsened and/or refined to accommodate the motion of the store, is a viable approach for performing realistic sepa ...
