  1. Realtime Multiframe Blind Deconvolution (MFBD) for Imaging through Turbulence

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF171025

    Ground-based space telescope imaging contends with atmospheric turbulence that distorts imagery. Adaptive optics (AO) mitigate these effects. Deconvolution is needed because of residual distortions and because AO is not always available. When considering

  2. Synthesis of HAN and HEHN in a Continuous Mix Process

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Production of hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) and hydroxyethyl hydrazine nitrate (HEHN) is of great concern for the manufacture of AF-315E. Current stockpiles of heritage ingredients held by AFRL are being depleted and those manufacturers are no longer in exi

  3. High Voltage (HV) Fireset Systems and Subsystem Component Level Designs

    SBC: HYPERION TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF171089

    Current and future explosive munition weapon systems development relies heavily on explosives detonation performance characterization and computational hydro-code simulation research conducted by DoD and DoE research communities. This work in turn relies

  4. Next-Generation Micro-chip Carrier for Cooling of Satellite Payload Electronics

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112057

    This proposed Phase II sequential effort will build upon the Phase I and original Phase II programs by: 1) Supporting AFRL's ongoing flight experiment of Oscillating Heat Pipe (OHP) chip carriers to evaluate their compatibility with and performance in a space environment; 2) Expanding the OHP operating limits and steady-state performance models to further improve the predictability (and perceived ...

  5. Solid-State Power Amplifier Thermal Management

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF161086

    Based on successful Phase I feasibility prototype results, this Phase II SBIR project shall develop Long-Distance Oscillating Heat Pipe (LD-OHP) heat transporters for high power, high temperature and low thermal resistance thermal management of solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) in current- and next-generation spacecraft. The LD-OHP technology initially demonstrated in Phase I and to be more ful ...

  6. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: AF15AT21

    This Phase II STTR effort is focused on generating the data necessary to identify the phenomenology that produces carbon deposition within kerosene film cooled rocket engines.This data is essential to guide the model development and validation process.Program outputs will be both data and a physics-based model for carbon deposition.

  7. Residual Stress Measurement and Forecasting System

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF083228

    The proposed approach for Phase I of this effort brings together two key items that are needed to work in concert with one another: advanced fatigue assessment methods and non-destructive inspection & detection techniques. Successful synthesis of these elements and the engineering disciplines behind them will provide an optimized and advanced method of taking full advantage of engineered residual ...

  8. Verification of Cold Working and Interference Levels at Fastener Holes

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF081088

    The USAF recognizes that benefits to cold working fastener holes include significantly increased life of a structure subjected to fatigue loading. However, full realization of this potential from a maintenance and engineering standpoint is hindered by the fact that there is currently no adequate field technique for determining how well the material structure immediately surrounding the hole has re ...

  9. Hyperspectral and Multi-Modal Retinal Imaging for Assessment of Retinal Laser Damage

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF083029

    The Phase I objective is a conceptual design of a hyperspectral/multimodal fundus camera for assessing laser damage.  The premise to be ultimately proven in this project is that damage to the fundus, from laser irradiation, may be characterized and detected by reflectance spectra, and by measuring function such as flow and perfusion.  The system will incorporate an existing fundus camera model ( ...

  10. 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 ...
