  1. Automated Guided Wave Phased Array Scanner for Inspection of ICBM Silo Walls

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF181009

    Existing inspection techniques for corrosion detection and wall thickness monitoring on ICBM silo walls are highly inefficient. Guidedwave (FBS, Inc. d.b.a. Guidedwave) has developed a revolutionary guided wave phased array (GWPA) ultrasound technology for the efficient inspection of large-area structures for plate and weld defects. The patented GWPA technology performs rapid 360-degree volumetric ...

  2. WIN System for Reduced Total Ownership Cost Across Aircraft and other DoD Platforms

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    Higher acquisition costs (i.e. cost escalations) and delayed deliveries in new aircraft procurements, e.g. F-35, have had serious downstream consequences for AF needs/priorities. DoD can afford to buy fewer aircraft which directly impacts adequate fleet readiness. Labor content in manufacturing the pervasive (over 60 miles in typical B-737) infrastructure of wire harnesses is reportedly the larges ...

  6. Satellite Identification, Tracking, and Health for Position Navigation and Timing (SITH-PNT)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF182002

    GPS denial is a growing threat to military and civilian operations around the world, both through active jamming and through anticipated failure of an aging GPS satellite constellation. While active jamming can be circumvented with specialized circuitry, obtaining position, navigation, and timing (PNT) during satellite failure remains an unsolved and growing problem. In collaboration with AFRL per ...

  7. Laser-based Steam Mass Flow Sensor

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF181008

    Increasing energy costs have placed budget constraints on many branches of the military and has brought to the forefront the problem of reducing costs by maximizing energy efficiency. The Air Force currently heats many of its facilities with the use of steam-based HVAC systems and the overproduction of steam can exacerbate these internal costs. To optimize this steam production, the Air Force is s ...

  10. Adaptable SoS Environment for M&S Tools

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF181063

    Military sensor models comprise software codes that represent specific sensor technologies, such as infrared, radar, and LiDAR, so that sensor systems can be designed and integrated into Air Force platforms.Operating these codes requires system designers to expend considerable effort in translating the inputs and outputs of the various codes so that they interface properly. Integrating multiple se ...
