  1. Real-Time Health Monitoring for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT:A Propellant Health Monitoring (PHM) Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) utilizes actual propellant components in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert.These sensors provide real-time data corresponding to mechanical property degradation resulting from environmental aging of propellants.The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and automatically track degradation passively without ...

  4. GMTI Data Exploitation For SWAP Limited Radar Systems

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131139

    ABSTRACT:Size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations restrict the ability of airborne radar systems to detect low-observable moving targets such as dismounts and slow vehicles in strong clutter.Solid State Scientific Corporation has developed a unique ground moving target indication signal processing algorithm which is ideal for SWaP limited systems due to its computational efficiency and its sensi ...

  5. Active, frequency-selective meta-surfaces for reduced antenna footprint and jamming mitigation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131066

    ABSTRACT: Significant cost reductions and system improvements would ensue if multiple transmit and receive antennas could share one RF aperture without performance degradation due to self-interference phenomenon. Effects of radar jamming signals would be also be reduced through the use of a properly designed reflector capable of only reflecting the RF radiation of interest. To enable such improv ...

  6. Imaging Techniques for Passive Atmospheric Turbulence Compensation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141179

    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose a Phase II SBIR program to develop a unique technique for imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The proposed idea combines the use of specially designed hardware and associated algorithms to yield improved performance over current systems. The proposed solution will improve upon one of the traditional techniques for imaging ...

  7. VLWIR SLS Digital FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A13AT014

    QmagiQ and MIT-LL will partner to develop a high-performance very longwave infrared digital focal plane array (VLWIR DFPA) suitable for hyperspectral imaging applications. The DFPA will be based on Type-II antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes with > 13 micron cutoff, hybridized to a digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC). In Phase I, we investigated the performance of a ...

  8. Anatomic Phantom for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Studies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can potentially provide a safe, non-invasive, and painless method for enhancing cognition, vigilance, and learning rate. However, further research is required to evaluate, demonstrate, and understand its efficacy in a controlled and reproducible manner. Hypothesis-driven studies of tDCS require targeted delivery of electrical currents to spec ...

  9. Automated Airfoil Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151054

    ABSTRACT:Inspection of inserted compressor blades is difficult due to the complicated geometry of the blades, the need for high accuracy, and the safety risk posed by undetected cracks. At present, the time and cost associated with airfoil inspection forces many parts to be condemned and replaced after limited service. Creare proposes to develop an Automated Airfoil Inspection System (AAIS) that p ...

  10. Air-Assist Atomizers for Fuel-Flexible Gas Turbine Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151061

    ABSTRACT:Jet-in-crossflow fuel injectors are commonly used to fuel gas turbine main combustors and augmentors. The performance of this type of atomizer is sensitive to the engine operating condition, so that fuel placement can vary over the flight envelope. This can lead to suboptimal fueling and combustion stability issues. Similarly, changes in fuel physical properties impact jet penetration and ...
