  4. Innovative Aeropropulsion Technology for Future Military Assets

    SBC: SPACEWORKS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF05192

    ABSTRACT: SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) believes that industry demand exists for a new robust and modern trajectory simulation program suitable for use in design studies up through Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR). This proposal seeks to further develop a trajectory tool that is flexible enough to support a wide variety of space transportation concepts and launch platforms. The tool, called ...

  5. Combustion-Based Actuator for Flow Control in Transonic Flight Applications

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03T014

    Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is lightweight, can be operated with passive fluidic valve ...

  6. Galvanic Corrosion Prediction for Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Corrdesa            Topic: AF141157

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this work is to develop a tool to quantitatively predict corrosion between carbon fiber composite (CFC) and 7050 Al, as used in remotely piloted aircraft (RPAs). Phase I showed that the dominant corrosion mechanism for this material mix is pitting. Therefore, this effort will introduce computational analysis of both galvanic and pitting corrosion rates on aluminum in stru ...

  7. 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. ...

  8. Encapsulated Resin for Non-Autoclave Resin Film Infusion Composites Repair

    SBC: Stratton Composite Solutions            Topic: AF04132

    Given the importance of composite repair to new aircraft like the F/A-22 and F-35 this SBIR research will provide significant improvement to the warfighter. The development of a powder resin, and dry fabric/Uni repair process that does not require freezer stored materials (room temperature storage), only typical vacuum bag and heat blanket. In phase 1 at the direction of the Air Force customer, ...

  9. System Engineering-- Thermal/Power- Efficiency Assessments of Air Vehicles

    SBC: MODELOGICS, INC.            Topic: AF04243

    In these times of increasing deficits and limited budgets, the Office of the Secretary of Defense is using the idea of Capability-Based Acquisitions. This concept limits spending by focusing investments only for key capabilities. With this concept, Research and Development at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) now also needs to be such that funding is focused on R&D that supports these key ...
