  2. Innovative TBC Blade Imaging System for Surface Temperature Mapping

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04288

    Sensors are vital during advanced turbine engine development testing. Essential data expedite engine development programs and accordingly bring new advanced propulsion and ground-power engines to market sooner. Ceramic thermal barrier coating (TBC) on first-stage turbine blades is now a vital component of advanced engines under development for future military aircraft, protecting the metal alloy b ...

  3. Distributed System for Field Detection of Stray Energy from Laser Weapons

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05313

    A number of high-energy laser weapons currently under development by and for the U.S. military will provide our armed forces with capabilities that are unmatched by conventional armaments. Laser weapons allow targets to be destroyed from remote locations without the delays associated with the transit of typical missiles and artillery shells. However, during engagement the laser radiation reflect ...

  4. Propulsion System Performance and Health Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05192

    The innovation proposed is a flight-worthy optical sensor that will monitor propulsion system performance and health characteristics, including identifying the onset of combustion instability, in air-breathing engines such as turbojets and ramjets. It is an innovation for three reasons: 1) the sensing is performed in the hot exhaust flow at the back of the engine instead of at the flame-front in t ...

  5. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...
