  3. Innovative DMFC Power Supply for NDI Hand Tools


    ABSTRACT: The Air Force regularly uses eddy current and ultrasonic NDI equipment which can be configured with a wide range of battery chemistries. Many of these battery chemistries, which include toxic heavy metals, are detrimental to the environment and can be difficult and costly to dispose of. The Air Force is seeking a new power supply for applicable NDI equipment that reduces the environment ...

  8. Innovative Burn Resistant Material System

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF131169

    ABSTRACT: Liquid rocket propulsion systems require the use of high pressure LOX/GOX, and therefore have the need for LOX/ GOX compatible materials. This is especially true with LOX turbopumps which are exposed to or submerged in LOX and exposed to high pressure-high temperature GOX during operation. LOX/GOX compatible materials are also needed for injectors, valves, and oxygen rich turbines. L ...

  9. Reduced Drag Connector for Hellfire Missile

    SBC: CMA Technologies, Inc            Topic: A14068

    The Hellfire air-to-ground missile is a combat-proven system that can be launched from multiple platforms with precision strike lethality. The benefits of this project are to increase the effectiveness and utility of the Hellfire missile by increasing the range which is achieved through the reduction of the fly-away aerodynamic drag of the missile after launch. This reduction in drag is achieved b ...

  10. CEC3: Cognitively Enhanced Cyber Command and Control

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: AF151048

    ABSTRACT:Effective Command and Control (C2) is critical for maintaining the Air Forces operational superiority. However, vulnerabilities in legacy systems may be exploited by adversarial cyber-attacks. Protecting network systems requires operators to sift through volumes of unstructured data. Operators rely on visualizations to manage data for decision-making. However, poor design, functionality, ...
