  1. Collaborative Virtual Combat Simulation Technology For System of Systems Research

    SBC: 3D PIPELINE SIMULATION CORP.            Topic: AF05210

    Our proposal is constructed around a mature, government-owned, distributed simulation architecture known as Joint Force Operational Readiness Combat Effectiveness Simulator (JFORCES) and a proven three-step computer-aided methodology known as Rapid Relational Modeling (RRM). The proposal includes definition, structuring and prioritizing of project goals and requirements using consensus of end-use ...

  2. Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Technologies

    SBC: 3DB LABS, INC.            Topic: AF05103

    In many cases the analyst's problem is one of finding a needle in a haystack. The ever increasing flood of communication technology and traffic has resulted in a large and growing haystack and presents a daunting problem. The key to maximizing analyst productivity is the development of intelligent tools which automatically and accurately extract potential activity of interest while only rejectin ...

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


    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 ...

  4. Development of an Innovative Practical UAV with no Moving Aerodynamic Control Surfaces

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05246

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated (AI) and subcontractor Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will apply the latest knowledge in circulation control and piezo-electric synthetic (zero net mass flux) jet actuators (SJAs) to develop a practical small UAV with no hinged control surfaces. In the area of flow control, low jet momentum coefficient SJAs have been used primarily as a mechanism to keep flow atta ...

  7. Fast docking with fewer degrees of freedom, combined with intelligent optimization of small molecules

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A05T014

    Conventional docking tests take a long time because of the many degrees of freedom. Additionally, large libraries of small molecules are tested without adequately using feedback about their suitability as inhibitors from previous tests. We propose a rapid initial screen that can computationally evaluate large numbers of small molecules so that a subset may be selected for further computational ana ...

  8. A Systematic Approach to Uncertainty Analysis for Physical Optics Based Radar Cross Section Prediction.

    SBC: ANALYTIC DESIGNS INC            Topic: AF05212

    The model validation process in radar cross section (RCS) database production is time consuming and labor intensive. Typically, synthetically generated data is compared to measured data, which is considered to be "truth." However, one must acknowledge that time may be waisted trying to refine a target model beyond the fidelity capable of the synthetic tools or the measurement data source. Analy ...

  9. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: AF05T021

    Object identification, quantification and localization are key goals in both military target detection and quantitative medical imaging. As in medical imaging, military images are often difficult to interpret due to noise, spatial resolution limits, changing background conditions and uncertainty about the materials being imaged. We propose to vastly improve the results from hyperspectral imaging s ...

  10. Novel Method for Fabricating Carbon Nanofiber Toughened Silicon Carbide Composites

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: AF05T023

    Carbon nanotube-reinforced ceramics are a promising class of materials that are plagued by extreme processing conditions which compromise the nanotubes, thereby inhibiting their ability to positively impact the ceramic composite. Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) proposes an innovative solution to this problem. Our process exploits the unique morphology of low-cost carbon nanofibers, upon which the ce ...
