  1. A CAD Tool for Virtual Laser Shock Peening of Rotorcraft Components

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A05063

    The objective of this project is to develop a test-validated CAD tool for performing virtual laser shock peening(LSP) simulations of rotorcraft components. Virtual LSP peening can be used, in conjunction with virtual fatigue testing, to conduct simulations to assess the effects of variations in process parameters, i.e., laser beam power density and size, number of layers, and the overlay pattern ...

  2. A versatile, novel two-step hydrogen reforming process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05282

    The Air Force requires a reformer technology that can handle multiple fuels and produce fuel cell quality hydrogen on demand. These include JP-8 as well as natural gas and other hydrocarbons. Many of the current technologies require multiple steps in order to remove CO or H2S impurities from the fuel stream. This creates difficulties from fuel versatility, processing and portability standpoints ...

  3. Accurately Validated High-Speed Wear Prediction Code

    SBC: C-K Technologies L.L.C.            Topic: AF05289

    The technology resulting from this effort will provide a comprehensive thermomechanical/ impact wear model. This integrated model will consider the developed thermal energy due to sliding friction and impact loading of the wear surface. In addition to the development of the theoretical model, a unique bench wear fixture will be designed, fabricated, and validated. This fixture will provide varia ...

  4. Adaptive Levels of Automation for UAV Supervisory Control

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: AF04071

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles hold great promise. As engineers provide UAVs with more autonomy, manpower requirements decrease. But increased autonomy replaces judgment with heuristics. It often degrades the remaining human performance. Balance is needed. Phase I demonstrates the feasibility of using game technology to find this balance. “Avant Guard” models a mission with multiple small UAVs. ...

  5. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software

    SBC: CEM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T018

    Accurate numerical predictions of performance of antennas on aircraft are important in many problems of avionics design and integration. In particular, such predictions are needed for determination of optimal placement of antenna on an aircraft in order to achieve required coverage. The focus of this project is an investigation and development of high-frequency computational methods and codes for ...

  6. Advanced Flow Control Actuators for Fuselage Drag Reduction

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A04082

    Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc. proposes an SBIR program for the adaptation of combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) flow control devices to the task of fuselage drag reduction on rotorcraft. COMPACT uses a small-scale combustion process to produce high velocity pulsed jets for flow control applications and has previously demonstrated strong control authority for reattachment of separated ...

  7. Advanced High Frequency Tunable Filters

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05224

    nGimat proposes to combine MEMS switches with ferroelectric technology to design and manufacture low-loss, low-cost, monolithic, frequency-agile microwave bandpass filters that can be dynamically adjusted in frequency by the application of a DC voltage. In Phase I, nGimat will design and fabricate the circuit, optimize materials, perform modeling and simulation, and build prototype tunable filter ...

  8. Advanced Lithium Ion Battery Manufacturing

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: AF05285

    We propose to use a high rate manufacturing technology recently developed at Excellatron to deposit all-solid-state thin film batteries on an ultra-thin substrate. The all-solid-state lithium batteries have very high cycle life (>10,000 charge/discharge cycles), a wide operating temperature range, a rapid recharge capability, and increased power densities. They are inherently safer than existing ...

  9. ALL SOLID STATE LITHIUM AIR BATTERY

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: A04052

    A novel approach is proposed for the development of safe lithium-air batteries that offer high-energy storage capacity and extended standby and operational life. The proposed battery will use a lithium anode, an air cathode having an air stable non-volatile electrolyte and a multilayer polymer electrolyte/glass electrolyte barrier to protect the lithium anode from direct reactions with water and ...

  10. Arabic Speech-Centered Machine Translation System

    SBC: STREAMSAGE            Topic: A04101

    Today there is an incredible and rapidly growing amount of Arabic broadcast data available over the air and digitally. Furthermore this media is of high interest to governments and corporations worldwide. In the proposed work, StreamSage proposes to develop a new type of recognition and translation system that would greatly improve the accuracy with which the deluge of broadcast content can be a ...
