  1. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  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. 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.

  5. Long-distance 3-D Reconstruction from EO/IR Imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131133

    ABSTRACT: While the state of the art in both single-image reconstruction algorithms and multi-view structure from motion algorithms have advanced considerably in recent years, little work has been performed which leverages the constraints relied upon by both approaches. When an area of interest is imaged from a long distance with little angular diversity in viewpoint, multi-view constraints alon ...

  6. Computational Modeling of Coupled Acoustic and Combustion Phenomena Inherent to Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Flow Modeling and Simulation            Topic: AF131181

    ABSTRACT: Flow Modeling and Simulation, LLC (FMS), proposes to develop a computational software tool, herein designated AUG3D, that is intended to provide physics-based, multi-level, validated computational simulations of turbine engine component flow fields, particularly those associated with thrust augmentors, i.e., afterburners. This tool will be ideally suited for closely integrating physica ...

  7. Speedy Sparse Bundle Adjustment for Video/Image Sequences

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes a flexible sensor estimation framework for airborne calibration processing of image streams over long time periods. The components of the framework will consist of existing software and libraries. The plugin-based framework provides flexibility to switch the components easily. The core of the framework is a belief propagation engine to globally optimize the sensor parameter ...

  8. Advanced Analysis and Design Tool for Scramjet Air-frame Propulsion Integration

    SBC: Flow Modeling and Simulation            Topic: AF112004

    ABSTRACT: The SCRAMSIM computer code will be able to perform analysis for engineering design, stemming from a low order Reynolds Average Navier-Stokes (RANS) to high order (4th or higher) LES using accurate subgrid scale models (SGS). It will also solve thermal non-equilibrium mechanisms, conjugated heat transfer, general finite-rate chemistry using several databases for hydrocarbon/hydrogen-air ...

  9. 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. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...
