  1. Distributed Robotic Intelligent Behaviors

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF03148

    Recent military efforts have illustrated the difficulty for conventional weapons to find and defeat "deep-targets" that are concealed, guarded, mobile, or even buried. Examples include underground hardened bunkers, cave/tunnel systems, and mobile SCUD launchers. Miniature robotics could be used to find, collect data, track, and even defeat such targets, but the robots need to be well coordinate ...

  2. Multi-Mode Mobility for Micro-Platforms

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF04177

    Recent military efforts have illustrated the difficulty for conventional weapons to find and defeat "hard-targets" that are concealed, guarded, mobile, or even buried. Examples include underground hardened bunkers, cave/tunnel systems, and mobile SCUD launchers. Robotic micro-platforms could be used to find, collect data, track, and even defeat such targets, but the robots need to be nimble, agi ...

  3. Multiple-View Genlocked Camera

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF03143

    The multiple-view genlocked camera (MVGC) developed and demonstrated duringthe first phase of this program will be extened to the long infrared domain. In addition, real-time structure from motion (SFM) and video-based anvigation algorithms will be coded on the Phase I and Phase II ontrol computers. Captive Flight Tests in winter and summer conditions will be executed to gather data and to evalu ...

  4. Computational Modeling of Laser Additive Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF03117

    The overall goal of the proposed research is to develop a comprehensive, efficient, and well-validated model for the prediction of the shape and thermal history of components manufactured using Laser Additive Manufacturing (LAM) processes. The proposed model will use a combined Eulerian-Lagrangian treatment for analyzing the three-dimensional gas-particle flow. Analysis of radiative heat exchange ...

  5. Wiring System In-Situ Health Monitoring Diagnostics

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF04153

    Lockheed Martin delivered the first operational F-16 Fighting Falcon to the United States Air Force in January 1979. With more than 10 miles of wiring packed into an aircraft just 49 feet long, the aging F-16 suffers from intermittent power wire failures that pose a significant fire hazard. These failures often occur when a cable's degraded jacket enables a water droplet or metal shaving to temp ...

  6. Instrumentation Support Systems Smart Transducer Plugins

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF04303

    Newer, smart transducers that conform to the IEEE 1451 standards will be used in new and legacy Instrumentation Support Systems (ISS)s allowing the ISSs to know exactly what is available on a test vehicle and also the coordination of the instrumentation setup, ground station setup, full pre-test checkout and dynamic error correction. Changes in the operational scenarios of ISS as a consequence of ...

  7. Rad-Hard Reconfigurable Level Shifters

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF04042

    As new technologies trend towards lower supply voltages to reduce power consumption at higher speeds their interfaces become less compatible with older legacy systems. In space electronics the challenge is greater since components and systems must also be radiation hardened. Therefore, there exists a need for unique radiation hardened interface devices that transparently convert from one type of ...

  8. Nondestructive Taper-Lok Fastener Hole Inspection Without Fastener Removal for Thick, Multi-Layer Structures

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04134

    The ability to detect cracks within Taper-Lok fastener holes associated with thick, multi-layer wing structures without removing the fastener presents significant challenges to existing nondestructive inspection technologies. Critical fastener hole inspections for sections of the B-1B wing structures require removal of the Taper-Lok fasteners followed by eddy current inspection, at a cost project ...

  9. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF02T005

    Epitaxial growth of non-equilibrium thin-film structures, which have high quality and abrupt interfaces, is still the main challenge that limits many material systems for applications in semiconductor devices. In this STTR Phase II program, SVT Associates (SVTA) in collaboration with the University of Minnesota (UMN) will develop a new RF plasma light-mass ion source, compatible with the low-pres ...

  10. Novel MgZnO-based spintronic materials and devices.

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T020

    This Phase I STTR project addresses the development of novel Zinc Oxide-based spintronic devices. The spintronic devices will find widespread application in civilian and military markets offering new generation of transistors, lasers and integrated magnetic sensors. The objective of the Phase I effort is to explore novel doping schemes to achieve room temperature ferromagnetism in ZnMgO materials ...
