  1. Real-Time Optical Smoke Meters

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF03257

    The SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) 1179C is the regulatory method for determining the exhaust Smoke Number from jet engines. This methodology is slow and cumbersome and requires handling and analyzing paper filters which have been exposed to the jet engine exhaust effluent which has been transported via a sampling rake and heated sample lines. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. suc ...

  2. Innovative TBC Blade Imaging System for Surface Temperature Mapping

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04288

    Sensors are vital during advanced turbine engine development testing. Sensor data expedite engine development programs and bring new advanced propulsion and ground-power engines to market sooner. Ceramic thermal barrier coating (TBC) on first-stage turbine blades is now a vital component of advanced engines under development for future military aircraft, protecting the underlying metal alloy blade ...

  3. Distributed Relational Modeling for Counterspace Situation Awareness

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF03037

    CleverSet proposes to apply the variable-resolution Bayesian technology developed in Phase I to distributed counterspace situation awareness. Variable-resolution modeling provides the proven effectiveness of Bayesian data fusion in an efficient, scalable, distributed architecture. A recent breakthrough, relational Bayesian networks, provides an underlying entity-relationship data model, providin ...

  4. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  5. High Rate and Cost Effective Arsenic Removal in Drinking Water Using MnO2/Fe2O3 Nanocomposite Media

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: AF03265

    In the Airforce SBIR Phase I project, Inframat has demonstrated nanofibrous MnO2 outperformed the benchmark oxidant Filox-R for As(III) to As(V) conversion and MnO2/Fe2O3 nanocomposite being superior to the best currently available GFH adsorbent for total arsenic reduction. Successful Phase I has provided the scientific and technological groundwork for further nanocomposite arsenic removal techno ...

  6. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...

  7. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...

  8. High toughness reaction bonded composites

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04041

    M Cubed manufactures many commercial components out of reaction bonded SiC and B4C on a large scale. The key advantages of these materials are high specific stiffness (high modulus and low density) and high thermal stability (high thermal conductivity and low CTE). However, these materials have limited toughness precluding their use in many potential applications including some missile defense com ...

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF03270

    General visual inspection, the current practice of aircraft wire maintenance, almost entirely depends on human decision-making. An Inspector reads/deciphers wire identification markings and sorts through voluminous printed documents to determine relevant interconnection data. Intangible limitations such as operator skills and tangible issues such as limited access, poor lighting and random orient ...

  10. Cross-Sortie Flight Route Optimization

    SBC: ON TIME SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF03094

    Both the USAF's Air Mobility Command (AMC) and commercial carriers must route multiple aircraft efficiently despite multiple, possibly conflicting requirements (minimize fuel burn, rendezvous on time, etc.). Phase I demonstrated the technical feasibilty of finding optimized routes for a collection of sorties using a combination of parallel distributed processing and advanced search technology. Th ...
