  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. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  3. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  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. Material Surface Properties Modifications by Nonequilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processing

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF05T028

    The proposed research will develop a non-equilibrium plasma source for deposition of thin films on refractory materials at temperatures less then 600K. The developed source will also have the flexibility to surface treat thermally sensitive substrates without damage. Our existing non-equilibrium atmospheric plasma source will be optimized for depositing amorphous SiC and ZrO2 thermal barrier mat ...

  8. 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. ...

  9. Battlefield Airman: Tactical Air Control

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: AF05115

    Tactical Air Control is a complex problem with high stakes. A failed strike leaves the ground unit vulnerable and may inflict collateral damage. Fratricide is a grave risk. Respect for this reality demands that the highest value in the game design cannot be technology, nor feature list, nor dramatic graphic effects. The highest value must be fidelity. "Battlefield Airman: Tactical Air Control" is ...

  10. Short-Range Ultra-Low-Cost Anti-Submarine Sensors

    SBC: BROWN COMPUTER CO.            Topic: SB031023

    Insuring the safety and control of littoral waters is problematic because of the difficulties of surveillance. The preferred methods of surveillance in the ocean are acoustic. In littoral waters, acoustic methods fail because noise from the surf and reflections from the shallow bottom convolute acoustic signatures beyond our capacity to discern them. Water absorbs light, reducing the effectiven ...
