  1. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...

  2. The Replacement of Chromium Electroplate for High Wear/High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: This proposal translates a non-toxic, aqueous-based, near room temperature electrodeposition process to completely eliminate Cr (VI) for the production of wear and corrosion resistant surfaces on high-strength steel. Specifically, our process will produce adherent and crack-free Re-based coatings that are extremely high-temperature (Tm of Re = 3180oC), lubricious, wear-resistant, and cor ...

  3. Snapshot Imaging Laser Displacement Sensor for Hypervelocity Diagnostic Testing

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is interested in hypersonic (M>5) systems that enable time-critical missions for strike and Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR). Perhaps more so than for any other flight regime, precise and accurate sensing of key phenomena is difficult without contaminating the data being collected. Control Vision, Inc has developed unique optical profilometry technology whic ...

  8. Nondestructive Evaluation Techniques for Composite Materials with Low Density Gradients

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF14AT05

    ABSTRACT: Energetic composite materials comprise crystalline energetic particles embedded in a polymer matrix. There is a need to gain insight into the microstructure and damage mechanisms of energetic composites via nondestructive evaluation. Applications of x-ray computed micro-tomography to resolve the microstructure of energetic composites are challenged by the low density gradient between th ...
