  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. Interface for the collection, analysis, and visualization of simulation performance data

    SBC: Perduco Group, Inc., The            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: To complement capabilities of future autonomous systems, the Air Force requires interoperable tools & methodologies to design, verify, validate, assess & operate human-machine system interactions associated with autonomous and manned systems integration. Often the human performance measures and status of each simulation is reported independently making it challenging to analyze the data. ...

  3. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Scramjet engines are expected to operate across wide Mach number ranges and typically incorporate isolators to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. Unfortunately, isolators introduce additional weight and drag, and form multiple shockwave/boundary layer interactions, which degrade the incoming flow. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active ...

  4. MHZ-RATE NONLINEAR SPECTROSCOPY AND IMAGING PLATFORM FOR TRANSIENT AND NONEQUILIBRIUM FLOWS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT20

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the proposed research effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of 100 kHz to 1 MHz nonlinear spectroscopy for measurements of molecular energy distributions, energy transfer, major species, and temperature in transient combusting and nonequilibrium flows. This will be accomplished, in part, by extending burst-mode laser technology to the fs and ps regimes for greater tha ...

  5. Exploitation Algorithms in the Compressive Sensing (Sparse Measurement) Space

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, the MaXentric team outlines its strategy for creating a Radar-based Compressive Sensing and Target Classification system, code-named Rad-CSC. In this Phase I, the team will implement and optimize compressive sensing and classification algorithms for use with conventional and synthetic aperture radar data. Data will be chosen from publicly available datasets, such as the ...

  6. Environmentally-compliant composite coating for corrosion and wear protection of structural metals

    SBC: ECOSIL TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel environmentally-compliant process to produce an advanced alloy coating(s) that imparts excellent corrosion and wear resistance to structural metals on military aircraft and weapon systems. The resulting composite coating and the coating process do not consist of any hazardous materials such as heavy metals chromium (C ...

  7. In Situ Quantitative Spatially-resolved Ablation Diagnostics in High-Enthalpy Flows

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the STTR Phase-I effort proposed by Spectral Energies LLC and The University of Tennessee is to demonstrate the feasibility of an in situ quantitative measurement of the products generated by the degradation of a material surface exposed to a hypersonic environment. The concept is based on a state-of-the-art diagnostic method: Coherent Microwave Rayleigh Scattering from ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Terahertz Frequency Materials Testing at Cryogenic Temperatures and in High Magnetic Fields

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: Temperature and magnetic field dependent terahertz spectroscopies have proven useful for characterizing novel electronic and magnetic materials. To this end, we are developing a turn-key, continuous-wave (CW) terahertz transmission platform operating from 5 K to 300 K with fields up to 9 T. Fiber-coupled photoconductive switches operate from 200 GHz to 1.2 THz in the cryogenic and high-f ...

  10. Innovative, Rapid Non-Linear Physics-Based Aeroelastic Analysis System

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: AF14AT04

    ABSTRACT: Accurate aeroelastic predictions are critical to the development of aircraft and assessment of aircraft/store compatibility since structural deformation and aeroelastic instabilities during flight affect pilot/aircraft safety and mission success. Indeed, several fighter aircraft have demonstrated recurring susceptibility to Limit Cycle Oscillations (LCO) when certain external stores ar ...
