  1. Advanced Combustion Stability Analysis Tools for Ox-rich Preburners

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083112

    The goal of this SBIR is the enhancement of the current state-of-the-art combustion instability analysis tools.  The planned enhancement is focused on capturing the effects of injection element distribution and the inclusion of substantial film cooling and diluent injection.  These characteristics are extremely important in the design of high-pressure oxygen rich staged combustion (ORSC) engines ...

  2. Corrosion and Fatigue Degradation Analysis and Forecasting System

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083225

    Corrosion is becoming an increasing problem in the Air Forces aging fleet. Corrosion is developing in airframes in inaccessible areas never intended for disassembly.  This potentially leads to premature failure due to fatigue or significant reduction of material integrity. Mitigation efforts are proving to be costly and time consuming. A methodology to locate and evaluate hidden corrosion in-situ ...

  3. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    In an information warfare scenario, the enemy will deploy an attack that has never been seen before. This attack will completely debilitate both defensive and offensive software capabilities. We have designed and developed a system that will defend against such attacks. The project's major innovation has been a comprehensive approach for tolerating security violations in mission/safety critical ...

  4. Efficient CFD-Based Aerodynamic Shape Optimization

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of this work is to develop a general-purpose CFD-based, shape optimization tool for robust and efficient aerodynamic shape optimization. Shape optimization is a technology where design optimization algorithms are coupled with geometry/shape deformation tools and engineering analysis codes such as computational fluid dynamics and structural analysis. The optimization algorit ...

  5. Global Free Space Smart Optical Interconnects for C3I Computational Technologies

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Solicitation AF93-035 requires the development of innovative concepts for increasing the warfighting capabilities of the Air Force command, control, communications and intelligence (C3I) investigation. The proposed effort addresses the establishment of planar (N4) and volume (N5) "smart" global (multi-dimensional) optical interconnects for digital optoelectronic computing hardware. The purpose of ...

  6. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts ma ...

  7. In-Situ Detection of Hidden General and Pitting Corrosion of Aircraft Structure

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083240

    Corrosion is becoming an increasing problem in the Air Forces aging fleet. Corrosion is developing in airframes in inaccessible areas never intended for disassembly. Mitigation efforts are proving to be costly and time consuming. A methodology to locate and evaluate hidden corrosion in-situ is needed. X-rays produced by laser Compton scattering (LCS) have the potential to meet this need. This prop ...

  8. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    The Unexploded Ordnance Asset RFID System (UARS) is an active low frequency RFID tracking system designed for locating unexploded ordinance (UXO) on the battlefield.  The system is a passive thin collar RFID tag that is placed onto the munition during manufacture and becomes activated after delivery on target.  Once activated, the RFID tag enters a passive listening mode, waiting for a specific ...

  10. Novel System for the Decontamination of Firefighter Training Facility Wastes

    SBC: Innovative BioSystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Treatment and disposal of surfactant-laden waste waters is a significant problem at firefighter training facilities, as well as in real world use. The extremely high foaming potential and chemical oxygen demand of these waters restricts their discharge into sewage treatment plants. Improved treatment processes must be developed for aqueous firefighting foams, hydrocarbons, and their degradation by ...
