  1. TCDL MIMOnizerEmpowering TCDL with MIMO Functionality

    SBC: EpiSys Science, Inc.            Topic: AF173003

    Towards the goal of enabling MIMO capabilities for TCDL radios while maintaining full backward compatibility, we propose the design, development and demonstration of TCDL MIMOnizer, a new appliqu aimed to empower TCDL modems with MIMO capabilities with minimum hardware modifications to the legacy radio such as smart low-lost bolt-on module or smart add-on antenna. In onedesign scenario, the MIMOni ...

  3. Ultra-Compact Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF173006

    Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to address thermal management performance shortfalls for 6th generation air platforms by developing a novel heat exchanger technology. Specifically, Makai will develop an ultra-compact foil based heat exchanger (FFHX) for air-cooled, two-phase vapor cycle systems. The FFHX will provide at least a 50% improvement in volumetric performance, pressure drops of le ...

  7. Integrated Dynamic Digital Engineering Ecosystem Cost-Model

    SBC: Inspird Inc.            Topic: AF173010

    Digital Engineering (DE) is the collaborative use of digital artifacts and tools to perform engineering functions. DE will improve acquisition, management, and engineering of defense systems throughout their lifecycles. Realizing these benefits will require deployment of an ecosystem that will impact people, process, tools and IT infrastructure; and incur related costs.Many architectures are possi ...

  9. Developing Aluminum-Based Metallic Glass Alloys for use in the Additive Manufacture of High-Toughness Aerospace Components

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: AF173014

    The additive manufacture of metal components from powder feedstocki.e. the net-shape, three-dimensional forming of a component, layer by layer, from a computer filehas gained popularity in the last nearly three decades, evolving from a method of rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. These methods are inherently far-from-equilibrium and present a significant, economical method to fabricate bulk ...
