    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. Scalable Aero-Load and Aero-Elasticity Solvers for Massively Parallel Heterogeneous Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: We propose to apply modern massively multicore processors to a key problem area of interest to the Air Force: multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural dynamics (CSD) solvers. The capabilities of the CPU to solve these problems have been increasing steadily, but the CPU is still a general-purpose device designed to run diverse applications such as word ...

  5. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines


    ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force and the Department of Defense are investigating synthesis, scale-up and production of novel energetic materials including high energy density compounds and fuels. Five-membered heterocyclic rings containing nitro groups have demonstrated great potential as energetic materials. Synthetic and engineering challenges are impeding scientists from safely producing ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. ...

  8. 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- ...

  9. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial reduction in complexity, size, weight and power consumption over the present state of the art. As part of ...
