  1. Pyrocast: Wildfire Forecasting & Data Services

    SBC: Reax Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 90

    This work will develop a real-time wildfire forecast system that automatically detects and forecasts the spread of every fire in the Continental US and updates each forecast in real-time as additional information becomes available. Fire forecast data, which are generated “in the cloud” using high performance computing resources, are transferred to a web server hosting a mobile-friendly web map ...

  2. High-Precision TEM Topography Mapping

    SBC: NanoElectronic Imaging Inc            Topic: 90

    NanoElectronic Imaging, Inc. (NEI) is developing techniques for mapping signals in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) that are normally inaccessible. In this Phase I SBIR project, NEI will build on preliminary results to develop a quantitative, TEM-based topographic mapping technique with the potential for atomic resolution in all three spatial dimensions. This precision would be akin to a ...

  3. AgilePod® Capability Enhancements: LiDAR

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: AF191102

    ASCs next generation LiDAR has incorporated lessons learned and incorporates agile manufacturing. The modular design concept divides the camera into three modules that can be interchanged to accommodate a variety of missions. The adaptability of the modular concept benefits lower cost, improve reliability, and decrease schedule and risk. The ASC modular LiDAR design allows for an interchangeable o ...

  4. Determination of Significant Failure Size for Finite Element Analysis (FEA)


    High strength safety critical parts may show localized high stress areas that exceed the yield or ultimate strength when evaluated with finite element analysis (FEA) methods. The feasibility of developing FEA methods to accurately predict part failures with localized stress concentrations will be demonstrated. Linear elastic, nonlinear plastic, implicit and explicit FEA methods will be developed a ...

  5. Thermal Spray Dashboard/Knowledge Management System


    The USAF repair depots expend tremendous amounts of resources applying high technology thermal spray coatings to improve the performance of components and systems. In general, thermal spray application processes are complex, requires high cost equipment that are expensive to operate, need highly trained personnel and necessitate constant verification testing to ascertain the coatings meet requirem ...

  6. Innovative Solutions for Multi-Rotor Flight Endurance


    We propose to continue the successful development of an innovative ‘linear’ multirotor topology. Simple rotors are positioned to maximize disk area which will reduce power consumption while navigating narrow spaces. Independent control of pitch, roll, yaw and heave is accomplished like a typical quad, without the added complexity of swashplates or tilting mechanisms. Additional rotors ...

  7. Robust Fuel Injectors for Combustion Instability Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181026

    Combustion instability is an ongoing concern for military propulsion systems such as augmented gas turbine engines. Augmentor screech can limit the performance of military aircraft and can cause durability issues or even catastrophic failure if it occurs. Modern augmentors have close-coupled fueling using simple round injectors to minimize manufacturing cost. In a “jet-in-crossflowâ€Â ...

  8. Real-time Single Chip Target Acquisition and Tracking for sUAV Gimbal

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF182085

    Over the last several years there have been significant advances in algorithms involving targeting tasks onboard airborne gimbals. These tasks include moving target indication (MTI), discriminative correlation filters (DCF) for click-to-track correlation tracking, as well as target classification via neural networks. While all these algorithms provide significant functionality, they have tradition ...

  9. Acquisition and Tracking Algorithms for Multi-Resolution (Foveal) Sensors

    SBC: CYAN SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF071155

    The AFOST program proposed offers an advanced UHD Digital hostile fire detection and identification compact camera capability with adaptive windowing and Superresolution. Improvements in the HOT UHD DROIC, focal plane array, and integration with a compact camera package provides dramatic new situational awareness while enabling enhanced hostile fire early warning capabilities for infrared sensors.

  10. Macro Weather Sensor

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF191010

    The U.S. Air Force Battlefield Air Operations (BAO) is seeking portable environmental observation devices that replicate the automated gathering and reporting of the same measurements currently performed by the AN/TMQ-53 for Service Level D airfield support. To address this need, ISI proposes to enhance our existing Macro Weather Sensor (MaWS) system to meet and/or exceed current AN/TMQ-53 capabil ...
