  2. Rapid Mission Planning for Desirable Viewing Conditions

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF141012

    ABSTRACT: Space Situational Awareness is concerned with the physical characteristics, capabilities, operations, health, and potential threats posed by space objects. This information is gathered largely via radar and optical data collection facilities. Due to the increasingly large number of space objects and relatively limited number of collection facilities, it's important that collection operat ...

  6. Quantum Cascade Laser Technology for Gas Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF073134

    ABSTRACT: A versatile and robust system will be developed for accurate measurements of the concentration and temperature of combustion products (e.g., H2O, CO2, CO, and NO). Such diagnostics can provide crucial information for the development and testing of scramjet engines, turbine engines, and standard combustion engines. The system will also be able to provide important characterization of pro ...

  8. Concurrent identification of Natural Antibiotics-Producing Gene Clusters and Culture Conditions

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    Modern metagenomics studies on diverse microbiomes revealed immense repertoires of potential natural products/antibiotics to be tapped into.However, identifying such secondary metabolites (SMs) directly from a complex microbiome remains rarely successful due to two major technicalchallenges: i) difficulty in dissecting complex microbiome samples and massive metagenomics data, and ii) difficulty in ...

  9. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD).High dither conditions, caused by constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator components.The Air Force and co ...

  10. Identification and Resolution of Events

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF083055

    ABSTRACT:The Air Force has a need to maintain strong intelligence capability in semi-permissive and anti-access area denial (A2/AD) scenarios where full-motion video (FMV)-based surveillance assets are rare or unavailable. In such environments, priority is given to leveraging any and all other sources of intelligence available, which may include ?open sources? of data available on the public Web, ...
