  1. Reactive Fusion Welding for Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Composite Joining

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: AF09BT24

    ABSTRACT: MO-SCI Corporation and Missouri University of Science and Technology have developed and evaluated fusion welding technology applicable to ultra-high temperature ceramic (UHTC) composite joining during a Phase I ceramic joining program. This Phase II program will improve arc and reactive plasma arc welding techniques and consumables to improve joint quality. Work in the Phase I resulted ...

  2. A Mathematical Model Based Control System for Wind Tunnels


    ABSTRACT: The objective of the Phase II effort is to extend the mathematical model investigated in the Phase I to include wind speed as well as temperature modeling, continue its development for a University of Notre Dame Wind Tunnel Facility, and demonstrate utility by adopting the model to a government facility specified by AFOSR. Specifically, the Phase II will include developmental work in ma ...

  3. Extreme Wear-Resistant Materials

    SBC: C-K Technologies L.L.C.            Topic: AF09BT19

    ABSTRACT: The proposal outlines work and time tables associated with finalizing the development of wear model concepts developed in Phase I work to predict the wear of two materials sliding with respect to each other while being subjected to high velocities and/or high pressures. In parallel with this, a severe wear bench test fixture design will be finalized, built, and utilized to validate the ...

  4. Situation Awareness Optimal Linkage and Reporting Intelligence System (SOLARIS)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112026

    ABSTRACT: The combined effects of data overload, source variability, and the effects of a wide variety of cognitive biases add enormous complexity to the already-complex task of intelligence analysis. Given the criticality of the analysis task, it is imperative that effective tools be developed for mitigating the effects of ever-increasing data loads coming from existing and emerging collection ...

  5. Next-Generation Micro-chip Carrier for Cooling of Satellite Payload Electronics

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112057

    ABSTRACT: Miniature flat plate oscillating heat pipe (FP-OHP) heat spreaders using ThermAvant's patent-pending ThermalCircuit architecture and low CTE materials will be demonstrated in order to transfer 100-300W/cm2 from chip-sized heaters (1cm2 to 3cm2) to a heat sink area that rejects heat at10,000W/mK. Prototypes will be modeled, designed, bu ...

  6. Microwave Mapping-Transparency Sensor System

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF121C123

    ABSTRACT: Compass Technology Group (CTG) proposes to develop a new concept in microwave nondestructive evaluation (NDE) in support of the Air Force"s requirement for transparent conductive canopy coating testing. The offered design specifically addresses the need for high-fidelity measurements of defects in aircraft windows in both manufacturing and in-service (depot and field) environments. This ...

  7. Development of an Extended Endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated, Unmanned System (ALTIUS)

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: AF112170

    ABSTRACT: The Area-I team propose to leverage their expertise to develop an extended-endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated Unmanned System (ALTIUS). ALTIUS, meaning"higher"in Latin, will provide a paradigm shift in the performance of small, tube-launched remotely piloted aircraft (RPA). Core features and capabilities of the ALTIUS UAS will include: 1) A state-of-the-art, high-energy-density ...

  8. Ultra High Performance Radar Absorbing Material

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF112195

    ABSTRACT: Traditional anechoic chamber wall treatments have consisted of geometrically tapered carbon loaded foam, which provides good near-normal incidence absorption of specular energy. While this material has served the testing community well over the last few decades, it is fundamentally limited because of the high level of diffuse scatter (tip diffraction), that increases the overall noise l ...

  9. Cognitive Measures and Models for Persistent Surveillance

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF121023

    ABSTRACT: The development of persistent wide area imagery surveillance systems for the Department of Defense is a huge step forwards for the Air Force intelligence capabilities. By providing continuous imagery updates across a broad field of view, these systems are expected to support both faster and more accurate warfighter decision-making. However, the human characteristics of the imagery ana ...

  10. High Range Resolution Radar for Flightline Boundary Surveillance


    ABSTRACT: Propagation Research Associates, Inc. (PRA) teamed with FLIR (previously ICx) proposes to leverage the work performed under a previous Phase II contract that involved clutter mitigation for ground based ground moving target radars. PRA plans to integrate automatic target recognition (ATR) algorithms developed on the previous contract into the R-4400 commercial-off-the-shelf high range ...
