  1. Micro Games for Cyber Threat Awareness

    SBC: Wombat Security Technologies            Topic: AF083032

    Our goal is to develop a web-based platform that can (1) host a collection of micro games for security training, (2) simplify the task of developing games by providing useful features, (3) help administrators manage and deploy micro games, and (4) help analysts visualize and drill down on data. For phase I, we will demonstrate the feasibility of our ideas. We will use a human-centered approach in ...

  2. Adaptive Phase Management and Mixing Enhancement

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08E10

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Texas A&M University (TAMU), proposes to develop a Momentum-driven Vortex Separator (MVS) technology for vapor and liquid management for the advanced vapor cycle Thermal Management Systems (TMS). The MVS developed at TAMU is a single component, two-phase management device that has been successfully demonstrated in various acceleration environ ...

  3. FADEC Cooling Using High Temperature Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF073049

    The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation.  It is historically mounted on the engine case to minimize the routing length of the sensor and actuator wiring.  The FADEC must be maintained below 70°C, while the environment can be as hot as 170°C.  The current design uses fuel to cool the FADEC, however, this often limits the allowable ground or flight idle time ...

  4. Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Maintenance and Life Management

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF081056

    BDC is developing a process called SMART BLEND(TM) for inspecting blended IBRs/Blisks. IBRs are susceptible to foreign object damage and blending is a relatively low cost method using machining to repair that damage.  The difficulty is that blending changes the geometries of the blades so that they no longer meet specifications.  More specifically, blending changes the frequencies of the blades ...

  5. Wide Temperature, High Energy Density Capacitors for Power Conditioning Systems

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: OSD09EP4

    TRS Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop ceramic capacitors as power conditioning capacitors for electrically driven military weapon systems. The proposed ceramic capacitor will combine some of the best features of high energy density, low dielectric loss, and high temperature stability. The capacitors developed on this program will have energy density >4J/cc, low power dissipation, and a wide ...

  6. Compact, Submicrosecond Discharge Pulsed Power Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF083007

    TRS Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop ceramic capacitors as discharge pulse power capacitors for high-power microwave (HPM) systems.  The proposed ceramic capacitor will combine some of the best features of high energy density, low dielectric loss, fast discharge time and high temperature stability.  The capacitors developed on this program will have energy density >3J/cc, working voltage > ...

  7. Enhanced Acoustical Environment for Modern Weapons Bays

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF073087

    The F-35 main weapons bay experiences severe acoustic loading when exposed to the freestream. The severity and attenuation of this loading is exacerbated by the very complex geometry of the weapons bay and the highly non-uniform approach flow. This extremely harsh aeroacoustic environment can also impact components that are mounted within the bay itself, including carriage stores that contain sens ...

  8. High Temperature Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF083123

    The magnetocaloric effect is a magneto-thermodynamic phenomenon in which a reversible change in temperature of magnetic materials occurs with a magnetization/demagnetization process. By cycling the material through these hot and cold states and exchanging heat through a fluid media, the system can generate an overall cooling effect. Research efforts in the last 10 years resulted in the discovery o ...

  9. Wide angle laser eye protector using 3D anisotropic metal-dielectric nanostructures

    SBC: General Opto Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF083013

    The primary objective of this proposed research effort is to develop a novel laser eye protector (LEP) for visors, which can not only offer a high transmittance (over 85%) in the visible spectral range and a high blocking rate (OD 4) in the near IR spectral range but also be angular insensitive so that it can be applied to the highly curved or complex-shaped visors.   The key innovation of the p ...

  10. Exploiting Essential Elements of Information from Significant Activity Reports (SIGACTS) for Forensic Analysis

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF083055

    There has been a great deal of development effort within the academic, governmental, and commercial arenas over the past few years in the field of information extraction. Based on our investigation, however, it appears that there is no ground truth for SIGACTS reports, which prevents GMTI users, program managers and researchers from performing apples-to-apples comparisons of information extraction ...
