  1. Detection of Hostile Fire from the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Recent technical demonstrations in hostile fire sensing and classification have highlighted the use of costly cryogenically-cooled electro-optical sensors.While capable, these types of sensors come with a higher initial purchase price as well as high life cycle costs per platform.This activity will implement a broad area hostile fire sensing architecture that uses lower cost discrete sens ...

  3. Handheld Dismount Kit for Persistent, Precision Navigation in GPS-challenged Environments for Military Operations

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153002

    ABSTRACT:The warfighter needs an accurate and reliable source of Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) when GPS is not available. Fortunately, technical advances in navigation sensors and algorithms can reduce dependence on the venerable, yet vulnerable, GPS system. Inertial sensors are becoming increasingly smaller and more accurate. Low cost, powerful embedded computing platforms enable real ti ...

  4. Heterogeneous Porous Media for Thermal Transport Mitigation in Hypersonics

    SBC: S. D. MILLER AND ASSOCIATES P.L.L.C.            Topic: AF161005

    ABSTRACT: S. D. Miller and Associates (SDMA) research team has led the field of research in Opacified Fibrous Insulation (OFI) since 2003.Early OFI prototypes equaled the thermal performance of Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) with MultiLayer Insulation (MLI) using gold-coated shields and vastly reduced cost and maintenance of TPS for hypersonic vehicles.In 2015, OFI prototypes demonstrated improv ...

  6. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: Arizona Engineering Science LLC            Topic: AF161024

    A comprehensive framework for hypersonic boundary layer transition predictions applicable to wind tunnel and free flight conditions is proposed. The distinguishing feature of this transition prediction framework is that it is developed from the ground up allowing full integration of the important transition regions (receptivity region, linear/secondary/nonlinear stability regimes, etc.) and additi ...

  10. Global-Local Modeling of Aircraft Occupant Safety Assessment during Ejection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF161044

    ABSTRACT: The extreme ejection conditions in the fifth-generation fighter F-35 could lead to occupant injury. Rocket sled testing of ejection seat with manikins is limited in simulating human response. The current neck injury models and injury criteria from automotive safety are inadequate for the ejection-related injury. We propose to develop the global-to-local finite element models (FEM) and si ...
