  2. 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 ...

  3. Multi-Scale Simulation Framework for Heterogeneous Energetic Materials

    SBC: Streamline Numerics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: Designing propulsion devices and munitions for precise operational performance demands control and manipulation of energy released by explosive materials. It is well recognized that the initiation of energetic materials in explosives applications depends sensitively on hot-spots that originate from various heterogeneities at the meso (particle)-scale such as voids, defects, dislocations ...

  4. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material selection criteria, proportioning methods and mixing pro ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Automated assessment of disclosure risk

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: AF13AT14

    ABSTRACT: Information systems continue to progress in terms of collecting, characterizing and assessing information. While this evolution has provided unprecedented intelligence capability to the U.S. and our allies, it has also raised unique challenges in the area of information security and disclosure risks. In particular, the intelligence community (IC) currently lacks the ability to understand ...

  7. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  9. Metamaterial-based MEM ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased-array antenna

    SBC: A. BROWN DESIGN            Topic: AF11BT28

    ABSTRACT: Under this collaborative effort between A Brown Design, Michigan State University, and Raytheon, a novel phase shifter design is proposed. The phase shifter design builds upon existing RF MEMS capacitive technology by co-integrating MEMS switches with metamaterial unit cells. The metamterial unit cell design is versatile and allows significant degree of freedom in integration and design ...
