  2. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled byadvances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ou ...

  3. Evaluation of High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple-Target Tracking Based on Massive Parallelism for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Threat detection of people, vehicles, and others as well as person-vehicle interactions (dismounts) of possible malicious intent are difficult problems due to the complexity of the problem space. The wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems aid analysts to track and identify dismounts, but typically produce an overwhelmingly large amount of information. The large scale data input challeng ...

  4. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) propose to perform research, development and demonstration of experimental quenching free measurements of heat-release in a realistic highly turbulent plasma-assisted flame. Kinetics models will be correspondingly updated and detailed 3D multiphysics simulations will be validated by the measurements ...

  6. Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test Methods

    SBC: FUNDO SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Miniaturized base metal electrodes (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are of great interest for future missile applications as designers are striving to achieve smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster and better electronic assemblies without sacrificing long-term performance. Unfortunately, screening, reliability and qualifications criteria are either not available or not standardized. In the ...

  7. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics Due to Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch of Substrates and Adhesives

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA14T002

    The reliability of electronic packages is of paramount concern in todays electronics industry, and ensuring their thermomechanical integrity is necessary to achieve this reliability. However, this task has become more challenging with miniaturization and the introduction of new materials. Thermal stresses in electronic packages continue to be one of the leading causes of device failure. The pro ...

  8. Novel Autonomous Ultrasonic System for Monitoring the Remaining Effective Stabilizer in Aging Rocket Propellants

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: MDA14T004

    Luna proposes a novel technique for the accurate quantification of the remaining effective stabilizers (RES) in solid rocket propellants. This sensing concept does not require access into the solid rocket motor (SRM). Therefore this approach does not in any way compromise the integrity of the motor and it can retrofit legacy systems and can be part of the next generation of motor systems and wil ...

  9. Advanced Electroanalytical Methods for Failure Mode Analysis and Screening of Base Metal Capacitors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Over 95% of the multilayer ceramic capacitors manufactured worldwide use base metal electrode (BME) technology and they are one of the key components in much of the modern electronics. BME capacitors have, over the last 20 years, made significant improvements in performance and reliability; making them more competitive for a wide range of applications. However, there remains significant concerns ...

  10. Weapon Inspection Sustainment and Recording Device (WISARD)

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T001

    The process by which weapon systems go from point of manufacture to field usage is not a simple one. Devices can be held in storage for decades before use, and they can be subjected to significant and potentially damaging environmental conditions throughout the systems lifecycle. Latent and intermittent failures occur, and it is difficult to detect these malfunctions without actively monitoring ...
