  1. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF17AT029

    The proliferation of commercial, visible and infrared wavelength laser systems is increasingly becoming an existential threat to our warfighters, which drives the need for further EO/IR sensor and eye protection development. Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmitta ...

  3. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to establish fundamental understanding of combustion-physical mechanisms leading to blowout, the critical evaluation of model limitations in predicting these blowout processes and the development of an improved combustion model to enable the prediction of lean blowout (LBO) in swirl-stabilized combustors. For this, high-resolution numerical simulati ...

  5. Extending Molecular Simulation to Grain Scale for Simulating Response of Energetic Material Under High Strain Rate and Shock Loading

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT023

    High Velocity Penetrator Weapons experience severe stress in terms of high frequency vibration and shock during launch, flight, and on impact. The extreme conditions have significant impact on the survivability of the weapon due to damage of the energetic material and fuze compartment. Molecular dynamics is often used to understand the effect of external shock on the material. However, molecular ...

  6. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles, already operating at material strength performance limits, are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating from sources such as directed energy. This localized heating may result in material softening, pitting and burn through causing structural damage and alteration of the structural profile. This damage can disrupt the aerodynamic performance and ...

  7. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    Several birds and insects use sky features such as sun, moon or star positions, sky polarization and even forest canopy structures to navigate and maintain heading in day or night conditions. To better understand this ability in insects, a sky projector is needed to allow researchers to project realistic sky images to the insect so that insect response can be studied. Polaris proposes to partner ...

  8. System of Systems Control Interactions

    SBC: GTD Unlimited LLC            Topic: MDA15T002

    In this research effort, the GTD team will design tools for efficiently specifying, representing, and analyzing the interactions between control systems in System of Systems (SoS). Three approaches will be considered and integrated. The first two are based in the rigorous application of H_8 control theory to the SoS design problem. The third will use complexity measures to generate a metric that c ...
