  3. High-Frequency Energy-Deposition Actuators for Effective Scramjet Control

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic propulsion systems, such as supersonic combustion ramjets (scramjets) are generally expected to operate from Mach 3.5 up to Mach 7-8 and are designed for specific flight Mach numbers to achieve optimum performance. However, realistic flight vehicles will experience a wide range of flight conditions during a typical mission. These off-design flight conditions degrade the perfo ...

  4. Laser-scopic Approach to Identify, Remove and Clean Galvanic Couple Corrosion in Difficult to Access Areas

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF131192

    The proposed effort will investigate and develop a laser-scopic tool that will provide earlier and improved capabilities for corrosion-detection, -removal, -cleaning and -repair due to galvanic couples in hard-to-access areas, without damaging the underlying substrate or adjacent features. The key focus areas include system definition, power-delivery, mitigation/elimination of splatter and debris ...

  5. Space-based RF Emitter Detection and Localization Using Field Programmable Gate Arrays

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: AF141124

    Satellite communications are increasingly vulnerable to radio frequency (RF) jamming due to availability of satellite operations information and reduced RF equipment cost. The Air Force seeks a trade study into how a constellation of 5-kg, 10x10x30-cm CubeSats can be used to detect and geolocate RF transmitters operating in the satellite X/Ku/K/Ka/Q frequency communication bands. RRC, together wit ...

  6. Optical System for Precision Atomic Clocks and Stable Oscillators

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141126

    Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain. However, these optical standards are expensive and not widely available. The phase stabilized frequenc ...

  7. Performance-Based Simulation Certification (SIMCERT) System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF121020

    ABSTRACT: Lumir is developing Sim MD, a multi-dimensional simulation certification system to assess training capabilities of LVC or DMO combat mission training and rehearsal systems. Sim MD provides ready access to valuable data without risk of technical, methodological or political challenges. At the core of Sim MD is the training capabilities assessment tool (TCAT) through which warfighters an ...
