  1. Situation Awareness Repair System (SARS)

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF19AT001

    NextGen Federal Systems is proposing a system that addresses one of key problems for human-machine teams as they operate under conditions where communications links can be periodically lost or jammed. One of the primary challenges is that flight crews have to quickly assimilate all of the changes and events that have occurred to the unmanned platform during the outage in order to re-establish a sh ...

  2. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  3. New Integrated Total Design of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) Propulsion System Architecture for Higher Efficiency and Low Noise

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N18AT012

    In this proposal, a meta model-based scaling law will be used to represent each system component. A components meta model-based scaling law describes the tradeoffs between performance metrics for that component or subsystem as a function of its ratings in relation to the system. This greatly reduces the number of degrees of freedom for each component, and at the same time, retains the information ...

  4. Tracking and Assessing Learner Engagement Toolkit (TALENT)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: AF17AT009

    The U.S. Air Force trains and educates a large and diverse workforce to meet requirements across a complex array of missions. Early-stage training in many Air Force Specialty Codes can consist of large corpora of foundational, static material, so training that motivates airmen is a necessary element in helping ensure a supply of qualified personnel in mission-critical areas like aerospace maintena ...

  5. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    During the Phase 1 effort, there were several achievements toward the design of grounding systems for MVDC architectures. For one, the common-mode equivalent circuit (CMEC) modeling approach that was derived at Purdue under ESRDC funding, was validated in a reduced-scale hardware setup at Purdue. The system studied consisted of a single generator, active rectifier, inverter, and propulsion machine ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    In this Phase II program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and benchmark-test additive-manufactured (AM) insulators capable of electrical stress greater than 25 kV/mm, for use in high-electric-field applications, such as high-power microwave (HPM) devices. These insulators will sustain vacuum of 10-7 Torr and withstand 20 psi of pressure. To achieve this goal, Voxtel will synthesize readily additi ...

  7. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    The main focus of this research will be to develop effective modeling toolboxes to analyze CM current/voltage behaviors and fault conditions at any part of the power system in a cost and time effective way. The toolbox will assist with grounding strategies and enhance the baseline design. A CM equivalent circuit model [3] has been developed to analyze the CM current/voltage behaviors. In this work ...

  8. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15AT001

    To meet the U.S. military needs for hardened laser-ranging sensors for munitions applications, a compact, high-repetition-rate, high-pulse-energy laser rangefinder will be developed consisting of a temperature-stabilized avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver, with a few photons equivalent sensitivity, and a miniature diode-pumped microchip laser. An existing integrated circuit design will be updated ...

  9. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: AF15AT14

    U.S. forces are benefiting from automation systems of unprecedented sophistication, empowered by advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems interaction. In air combat operations, onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out commands, and report aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots and agents are part of a n ...

  10. Additive Direct-Print Fabrication of Nanocomposite Materials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: The ability to fabricate arbitrarily complex insulator geometry for field-shaping purposes is an alluring property of printed plastics; however, the current generation of resins utilized in print additive-manufacturing (AM) is known to have significantly lower dielectric breakdown strength than many traditionally fabricated parts from bulk virgin plastics. In Phase I, it will be shown th ...
