  1. 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

  2. Uncertainty-Analysis-Driven Reduced-Order Kinetic Models Targeting Combustion Dynamics


    The design and development of a number of advanced Air Force propulsion systems is substantially limited by the current inability of computational design support tools to adequately and cost-effectively predict the complex flow physics and combustion dynamics that governs system performance and stability. The innovation proposed consists of a comprehensive experimental-modeling framework to (i) sy ...

  3. Battlefield Airmen Augmented Reality System (BAARS)

    SBC: Sage Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF171030

    The Digital Enhanced Vision System (DEVS) has been in development using government and IRAD funding. The DEVS is an advanced helmet mounted digital night vision system. The DEVS is a multispectral device using a short wave and long wave infrared sensor.

  4. Durable Pre-cooling Heat Exchangers for High Mach Flight

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161074

    Air breathing propulsion systems provide greater propulsion efficiency than rocket based systems. Of the air breathing technologies, turbine based systems provide the flight speed flexibility to propel the vehicle from takeoff to approximately Mach 4. However, at flight speeds above Mach 2, the stagnation temperature of the air at the vehicle inlet reduces the inlet mass flow rate and achievable p ...

  5. Horizon: Validation of an improved method for rapid characterization of protein aggregates in biologic drugs for increased quality and safety

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: NA

    Optofluidics and the University of Delaware propose to complete the development of the Horizon technology and carry out validation via a comprehensive multi-site study. The technology is a subvisible particle analyzer pioneered during Phase I. The technology is designed to fill two critical gaps in biopharmaceutical product development: (1) Scientists can count and image particles with current too ...

  6. Satellite Identification, Tracking, and Health (SITH)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF171026

    The Air Force requires 24-hour non-interrupted satellite tracking. The ability to identify satellite orbits and deviations from them provides the Air Force with key intel that could be used to identify malfunctioning satellites, prevent collisions, or ev

  7. Low Power, Hybrid Pneumatic/Electrothermal Deicing System for the MQ-9 Vehicle

    SBC: Invercon LLC            Topic: AF161123

    In Phase I, Invercon experimentally demonstrated three, low power deicing approaches for MQ-9 that all combine a low ice adhesion strength coating with additional mechanisms to successfully shed accreted ice. One particularly successful, retrofittable system employs a stiff, exterior, composite shell combined with a low ice adhesion strength coating. The systems performance is further improved in ...

  8. Enhancing Systems Engineering for Complex Systems with Digital Thread

    SBC: RJ LEE GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF171114

    The USAF has looked to create digital surrogate models to meet the requirements of Better Buying Power 3.0 and goals of owning the baseline. When people think of a Digital Thread/Twin, they immediately think weapon system, but the methodology
