  4. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  10. 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 ...
