  1. Dual Mode Electrical Accumulator Unit (DMEAU) II

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF093173

    ABSTRACT: Electrical motors are rapidly replacing hydraulic motors in flight actuators for aircraft applications. In hydraulic systems, accumulators are used to store regenerative energy from the actuators as well as to supply peak energy demands of these actuators in response to flight control system demands. No electrical analog (Electrical Accumulator Unit) exists in production, although som ...

  3. Cognitive System Accelerator of Knowledge Gain in Human-computation-sensor Analytic Systems

    SBC: Etegent Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF112026

    ABSTRACT:In an attempt to address the data overload challenge significant work has been conducted studying the human factors and cognitive science issues related to exploitation of big data. Also, significant investment has been made in automated or autonomous processing/exploitation capability. It is clear that no matter how efficiently the human cognitive ability is applied to manually interpret ...

  5. Non-Silicon and Non-Boron based Leading Edges for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF141001

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR program seeks a novel process to produce the new hybrid ultra-high temperature (UHTC) ceramic composites that can survive the hypersonic flights. The new process will produce a very unique grain and graded microstructure that can offer high strength (>100 kpsi), high fracture toughness (>10 MPam), and high thermal shock resistance, and high oxidation resistance over 20 ...

  6. Improve Energy Source for NDI Equipment Tools

    SBC: PH MATTER, LLC            Topic: AF141204

    ABSTRACT: Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) equipment, such as Eddy Current (EC) and Ultrasonic Testing (UT), provide important tools for the Air Force to characterize flaws, cracks, and/or defects in aircraft, thus monitoring potential safety issues. This equipment is typically hand-held, and used by maintenance crew in flight lines and hangars to inspect aircraft. The U.S. Air Force currently ...

  7. Innovative Information System Technologies: Real-Time Monitoring and Correlation of Multiple Streams of Information from Heterogeneous Sources

    SBC: ITCN, Inc.            Topic: AF03094

    ABSTRACT: Legacy military aircraft have a long-standing requirement for monitoring bus activity between control elements and weapons/sensor systems. The Bus Characterization and Integrity Toolset (BCIT) was a successful series of Phase I, II, and III SBIRS from 2004 onwards. BCIT was the first of its kind to offer dynamic testing of bus operations and physical cabling by combining a 1553 Monitor/ ...

  8. Methods for interfacing broad bandwidth data links to airborne ISR systems

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: AF103166

    ABSTRACT: Military sensor systems making use of the Common Data Link (CDL) are generating more information, thus taxing the capabilities of available spectrum for the relay of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) data and information. We will define new network interface models, control use-cases, and link commands using behavioral VHDL. We will also model required performance of ...
