  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. Surface Deformation Measurements Using Light Modulation Imaging

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic vehicles will require structures that can withstand highly transient flows and complex loadings throughout the flight trajectory. Shock boundary-layer interaction can excite panels locally and lead to structural failures. Non-contacting measurement technologies are needed to characterize the effect of flow transients (due to pressure and temperature fluctuations) on the struct ...

  3. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to extend MZAs WaveTrain wave-optics sensor simulation framework to model EO/IR sensors operating on hypersonic aircraft. Following the methods we have developed for aero-optical imaging through subsonic, transonic, and supersonic flows, existing WaveTrain libraries will be expanded to include hypersonic flow, shocks, thermal effec ...

  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. Protection of DoD Satellite Communications Against RF Interferences and Personal Mobile Telecommunications

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF14AT17

    ABSTRACT: The United States relies heavily on force multiplying, space-based navigation, communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. These satellites populate all orbital regimes including low-earth orbit (LEO), medium earth orbit (MEO) and geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO) and frequently require complex ground station network support requirements. Miltary ...

  7. Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile Targets

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF15AT05

    ABSTRACT: XL Scientific LLC will leverage over a half a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated DREAM2 toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a full asse ...

  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. Plasma Simulation from Two-Fluid to MHD in Complex Geometry Using Local Relaxation

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: Multidimensional simulation of plasmas will be critical to the design of high voltage and high energy density devices over coming decades. Individual fluid simulation codes are presently limited to one or perhaps two of three plasma models: the higher densities and longer time scales of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), the lower densities and shorter time scales of extended MHD (XMHD), and ...

  10. Hybrid Chemical-Electric Propulsion (HCEP)

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I efforts seek to develop a dual-mode Hybrid ChemicalElectric Propulsion thruster concept design based on the extensive microwave torch/arcjet experience of PSU and Hall and ion experience of EDA. The primary focus of the Phase I effort will be demonstrate the operation of an ionic liquid microwave thruster in the high-T/P regime and the basic operation of a Hall and ...
