  6. Friction Material (brake pads) for Metal Matrix Drums

    SBC: Century, Inc.            Topic: A13069

    Century has designed and manufactured aluminum metal matrix composite (MMC) brake drums for multiple applications both military and commerical with great success. Applications include axle loads ranging from 8,000 to 23,000 lbs. As applications vary the torque requirements of the brake system also vary. To work with multiple brake systems, multiple friction materials may be required to couple the ...

  7. Mission Command of Autonomous Systems

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A15032

    Army infantry Commanders rely on autonomous systems to gain situational awareness about what is around the next building or over the next hill. However, in smaller Army units, the Commander has limited personnel to help plan out and manage these autonomous systems. Tasking autonomous systems requires that the Commander first task the system operators, who then have to translate that intent into lo ...

  8. Full-Scale Near-Field Acoustic Holography for Reduction of Annoyance and Disturbance

    SBC: SOUND ANSWERS, INC.            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:Noise levels of military jet aircraft have significantly increased as the power of the engines has increased creating a community noise issue around military airfields. Current noise monitoring requirements only measure sound pressure levels which do not correlate to human annoyance / disturbance. Sound Answers plans to apply their extensive Sound Quality background to establish new acous ...

  9. Broadband, Real-Time Non-Intrusive High-Power-Microwave Near-Felds Mapping System

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF151025

    ABSTRACT:The feasibility of developing a photonics-based real-time high-power-microwave (HPM) near-field mapping system is to be investigated. The system is intended to contain multiple non-intrusive near-field sensors so that it can simultaneously detect undistorted versions of broadband HPM electric- and magnetic-field transients over a desired field-mapping area. The system will be able to take ...
