  1. A Novel Coverglass System with Enhanced Radiation Resistance

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF04029

    The Foster-Miller team is developing a novel coverglass system that protects photovoltaic cells on space power systems that are exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation. The spectrum of radiation a solar cell is exposed to not only provides usable energy, over time it also reduces the efficiency of the cell by darkening the barrier coverglass, escalates the operating temperature, and deteriora ...

  3. Bayesian Troop-Target Detection, Tracking, and Prediction Using FOPEN-GMTI Radar

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB041024

    The "troop-target" problem of automatic detection, tracking, and prediction of the formations of dismounted ground troops concealed in foliage, using FOPEN-GMTI radars introduces challenges well beyond those encountered in more conventional group-target problems. AD HOC troop formations are considerably more amorphous and unpredictable and they must be deduced from the constituent individuals. Y ...

  6. Automated Fastener Installation System

    SBC: Variation Reduction Solutions Inc            Topic: AF103C148

    ABSTRACT: Sorting, solvent-cleaning, promoting, delivering, sealing and installing 30,000 fasteners per day is a critical task required for full-rate production of the F-35 Lightning II. These 30,000 fasteners are comprised of approximately 350 unique part numbers and each must receive one of three different promoter solutions and sealers, each with time-limited properties. Preparing the fast ...
