  1. Structural Health and Usage monitoring system for Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF03237

    Acellent Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a complete Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system for application to unmanned air vehicle (UAV) platform. In partnership with The Boeing Company, the development will focus primarily on the monitoring of UAV used by the U.S. Air Force such as Sensor Craft and UCAV. The proposed development will provide the means to significantly reduce maintenance ...

  3. Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) of Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) using structural health monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A04158

    Monitoring the continued health of aircraft subsystems and identifying problems before they affect airworthiness has been a long-term goal of both the U.S. military and commercial aviation industry. Structural health monitoring (SHM) can provide a paradigm shift from schedule-driven maintenance to condition-based maintenance (CBM) of assets. The proposed project will focus on the development of a ...

  4. Refractory Coatings on Mechanically Resilient Insulators


    The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using ceramic coatings on plastic high-voltage insulators to increase their surface breakdown voltage and improve their recovery after a breakdown event. The goal is to produce a coating that can be applied to high-power microwave tube, coaxial plasma gun and z-pinch insulators that will allow higher voltage operation, reduce flas ...

  5. Near Surface Flow Control Using Magnetohydrodynamics in High Mach Number Flight


    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a Cathodic Arc Plasma Sources (CAPS) and Power Processing Unit (PPU) for producing dense, high current (> 1 amp) plasma flows for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) control of hypersonic flight surfaces. The CAPS source and PPU were developed for aerospace applications and have been optimized for weight and efficiency. The main advantage of ...

  6. Development of Multi-Hit Nonlinear Progressive Collapse Models for Fixed Targets

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: AF05151

    A Phase I Project is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of developing Multi-hit Nonlinear Progressive Collapse Models for Fixed Targets. The stated objective is to develop High-Fidelity Physics-Based (HFPB) fast-running models (FRMs) for simulating the nonlinear progressive collapse of aboveground fixed target structures damaged by multiple air-delivered conventional weapons. Phase I will d ...

  7. Automated Behavioral Health Triage

    SBC: Activity Research Services            Topic: A04T025

    The overall objective of this project is to develop an automatic adaptive testing system that rapidly identifies specific cognitive deficits to aid in medical and operational decision making. The Phase I effort produced a prototype adaptive triage system. ANAMts, designed to automatically focus testing on specific cognitive domains. ANAMts consists of a 4-level adaptive cognitive testing system ...

  8. Automated Learning Video Analysis (ALVA)

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05309

    We propose to develop a system that will automatically track targets based on characteristic velocity differentials between the target and the background. We leverage our existing system for feature detection and tracking and show that it can produce recognizable discrepancies in the kinematics between a moving background and a moving target. We will augment the discriminating power of this kinema ...

  9. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: ACUMEN CONSULTING            Topic: AF04165

    Projecting high radiance, broadband scenes in the spectral range from 0.2-14 mm is desired to simulate operating environmental scenarios for testing ultraviolet , visible and infrared sensors in a hardware-in-the-loop environment. The ideal solution will provide high radiance levels over the entire spectral range along with the capability for both broad and narrowband emission, as is appropriate ...
