  1. Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Virtual Flight Test

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: ZONA proposes to develop a comprehensive virtual flight test software system by enhancing the capabilities of the ZONA's Stick-To-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation (STS-DFS)"previously developed under AFRL contractual support. The current STS-DFS combines flight dynamic model and a nonlinear aeroelastic solver constructed based on neural net-based aerodynamic reduced order model (RO ...

  2. Scale up of EO polymers and their utilization in novel nano-imprinted sub-wavelength waveguide-based Modulators and Arrays

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: We present a completely novel design for the polymer waveguide portion of the EO modulators, thereby resolving the fundamentally important low-loss coupling issue. This significantly simplified and elegant design will be fabricated by a nanoimprinting process, making use of electro-optic polymers that have been scaled-up to commercial levels. These polymers will be optimized for the t ...

  3. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The Phase I technical objective is twofold. First, the ZONA/MIT team will develop an Unsteady Aero-Structural Adjoint (UASA) methodology and implement it in a 2-D unsteady Euler solver. The objective of the effort is to investigate and resolve the technical issues involved in the development of the proposed UASA methodology. In this effort, we will first identify the pros and cons of a ...

  4. End to End Trusted Path for Embedded Devices and Applications

    SBC: Cummings Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT15

    ABSTRACT: Smartphones are powerful computing devices that manipulate, store and transmit sensitive data and are becoming increasingly popular for malware attacks as a result. In order to use them for military purposes, a mesh of security techniques are needed in order to contain sensitive data and prevent it from leaving the device in an unapproved manner. Data separation primarily relies on addr ...

  5. Fine Scale Modeling and Forecasts of Upper Atmospheric Turbulence for Operational Use

    SBC: IntelliWare LLC            Topic: AF09BT27

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this STTR Phase II project is to continue the development of a fine scale forecast model capability that will provide a technologically superior, high resolution atmospheric decision tool to accurately predict areas of clear air turbulence in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS). Accurate real time knowledge of the dynamics in the UTLS is critical to supp ...

  6. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    Lumir proposes to build the RPA SOCIAL System, a training supplement providing realistic communications between RPA crewmembers and other mission-relevant entities in simulation-based training environments. The RPA SOCIAL System will enable RPA crewmembers to train as they will fightin a task-saturated, high-tempo environment where they interact with various entities as they control the aircraft a ...

  7. Selective Solar Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to Dimethyl Ether (DME) Using Unique-Architectured Nanotubular Semiconductors

    SBC: EMD Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF103252

    ABSTRACT: Carbon dioxide feed stock can be converted into fuels of solid, liquid or gas phase by chemical, electrolytic, photocatalytic and photo-electrocatalytic methods. Reduction of CO2 to fuel form of any phase requires energy. The reduction process should be energy efficient so that we do not spend more energy and emit more (indirect) CO2 in the process of converting CO2. From this point of ...

  8. Multi-Source Integrated Cooling Heating and Power System

    SBC: ENERGY QUEST TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF112219

    ABSTRACT: The proposed project would design a 10-ton multi-energy source, integrated cooling, heating, and power system, including the solar collectors, with the capacity to produce 8kWe of back-up electrical power. The system is a single integrated cooling, heating and power generation unit. It is similar in size and cost to a traditional commercial packaged heating and cooling system, and can o ...

  9. Performance-Based Simulation Certification (SIMCERT) System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF121020

    ABSTRACT: Lumir proposes to develop Sim MD, a multi-dimensional simulation certification system to easily assess training capabilities of LVC or DMO combat mission training and rehearsal systems. Sim MD will provide ready access to valuable training capability information without risk of technical, methodological or political challenges. At the core of Sim MD are ratings of training capabilities ...
