  1. PROSI: PRECISION OPTICAL-GPS METROLOGY FOR SIMULTANEOUS MACHINING AND INSPECTION

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: At present, the common practice in the fighter aircraft industry is to use touch probes as secondary measurement systems to maintain tight machining tolerance control. The current touch-probe inspection process renders the typical milling machine idle while features of the machined part are slowly and intrusively being inspected, one feature at a time, over 1.5 to 3 hours per part. To m ...

  2. Automated Liquid Shim Application

    SBC: Variation Reduction Solutions Inc            Topic: AF112120

    ABSTRACT: Our team will develop a method for applying exact controlled amounts of highly viscous Liquid Shim material within established Production process specifications for aircraft structure through an automated direct mixing/dispensing application tool. Currently, liquid shim is applied using pneumatic Semco guns which are loaded with cartridges of premixed Hysol EA 9377. Once mixed, these ma ...

  3. Bayesian Reliability Assessment of Non-Destructive Evaluation (BRANDE)

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft structural components are prone to damage typically assessed by various NDE tools. Damage to the aircraft structural components decreases operational readiness and compromises safety if improperly maintained; however, frequent inspections and maintenance is expensive. CBM+ equipped platforms, when supported by models and simulations typically experience an increase in operatio ...

  4. Novel Oxidizer for Ammonium Perchlorate Replacement

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: AF103211

    ABSTRACT: In an attempt to develop novel oxidizer materials that the DoD requires for use in missile systems to meet performance and sensitivity requirements, NALAS proposes to screen potential candidates for suitability using first known and predicted information. Specific types of materials under consideration will be those possessing intra/intermolecular hydrogen bonds such as those appearing ...

  5. Advanced Solid Oxidizer (ASO)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF103211

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and synthesize a safe, high performance, high density solid oxidizer to replace Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) in solid propellants for use in booster, tactical, and strategic systems. The long sought replacement for ammonium perchlorate remains an unanswered challenge as the development of an insensitive but high energy solid oxidizer has proven very difficult. ...

  6. Advanced Near-Net Shape Metallurgy of Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF103215

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a family of Low-Cost Thrust Chambers (LCTC) for use in future NASA exploration systems. Substantial cost savings will be realized in the production of the LCTCs with ORBITEC"s innovative hybrid fabrication technique. Hybrid fabrication (HF) allows for the rapid casting of near-net shape metallic thruster components, including regeneratively- ...

  8. Covert Precision Aerial Delivery System

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF103250

    ABSTRACT: SeaLandAire Technologies and its team member CH Robotics propose to develop a 14 lb gliding vehicle capable of delivering a 20 lb payload. The vehicle will utilize a tandem wing arrangement. During transport, wings and stabilizers will be stored inside the glider, which will be designed to integrate with bomb racks that comply with MIL-STD-1760 through the USAF Seek Eagle effort. Befo ...

  9. A Novel Long-Life Battery Power Supply

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: AF103065

    ABSTRACT: Highly reliable power supply technologies are needed for future arming and fuzing system designs. These power supplies should be able to operate after a long dormant period of up to twenty years. A novel battery power supply is proposed for this purpose. The proposed battery utilizes a solid state electrolyte which would have indefinite shelf life. High peak specific power will be p ...

  10. A Smart Interaction Device for Multi-Modal Supervisory Control of Multiple RPAs

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF103036

    ABSTRACT: Demand for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) within the U.S. Military has significantly increased over the past decade, including a demand for Micro-Air Vehicles (MAVs). However, the increased use of these systems has been hindered by the lack of natural interfaces for controlling them. Currently multiple operators are required to manage all aspects of a single aircraft and operators inte ...
