  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. ITACTIC- Infrared Target Acquisition, Classification, and Tracking via Image Compression

    SBC: Inview Technology Corporation            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Rice in concert with Inview Technologies will design, simulate, and evaluate compressive algorithms for object detection and classification in both static and dynamic imaging. The eventual goal is the application of the most suitable methods in novel short-wave and mid-wave infrared optical architectures for high-speed discovery and tracking by exploiting sparse signatures. We will compa ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Resolution / Wide Bandwidth Arbitrary Waveform Generator for Telemetry Applications

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: AF14AT03

    ABSTRACT: In order to meet future needs for cost-effective high-capacity, secure telemetry systems, communication systems, smart weapons systems, UAVs, satellites, and other DoD platforms, further advances and innovations in digital-to-analog conversion must be achieved to support the migration to higher frequencies and operation in shared spectrum environments. This dictates a requirement for tr ...

  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. Shear Sensors for High Speed, High Temperature Flow Applications

    SBC: SILICON AUDIO, LLC            Topic: AF14AT08

    ABSTRACT: The principal thrust of the proposed research is the development and testing of a high-speed (MHz range) sensor for measuring the shear stress beneath a hypersonic boundary layer at elevated temperatures. The development of such a sensor will enable the Air-Force to develop more robust empirical models for predicting the wall shear stress in complex 3-D flows. The proposed sensor inno ...

  7. Novel Materials In-Situ Ablation and Thermal Sensing

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to design and fabricate multi-signal in-situ ablation sensors based on an acoustic transducer system, thermal measurement system (i.e., either photonic technology or in-situ thermal sensors based on ultra small thermocouples), and fast inverse heat transfer algorithms. This project will use the following approaches: Utilize commercially available opt ...

  8. 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. Advanced Antireflective Coatings for Polycarbonate Lenses

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: Robust optical coatings are of great importance across a broad spectrum of applications. Hard, durable, stress-free coatings are needed and used in everything from ophthalmic polymers to infrared optics. One of the principal shortcomings of typical inorganic oxide, nitride, and sulfide coatings when applied to polymeric substrates is the large difference in the coefficient of thermal ...

  10. Conformal Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Antireflective Coatings

    SBC: ZT Solar, Inc            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this STTR Phase I proposal is to investigate the feasibility of a hybrid organic/inorganic gradient index anti-reflective (GRIN-AR) coating on both rigid and flexible substrates, based on the resonant infrared matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (RIR-MAPLE) process. The hybrid organic/inorganic material approach enables both optical index control, as well as mechan ...
