  2. Innovative DMFC Power Supply for NDI Hand Tools

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF141204

    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 ...

  3. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the Phase I project is to establish the feasibility of applying a methodology to assess a candidate legacy part to determine the viability of using Additive Manufacturing methods to produce the part. This objective will be accomplished by creating a guided decision framework that determines if a part aligns with the critical process characteristics and economic ...

  5. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: MDA14022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  6. BMDS Aggregate Semantic Store (BASS)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: MDA14010

    Legacy database systems often exhibit the feature of being stove piped and difficult to integrate over time. This is because they were often developed for ad hoc purposes for specific groups, thus their data models and inherent structure is not always well understood except by a select few people who designed and built the database. This means data retrieval using these legacy systems is a chall ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  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, ...
