  1. Mobile Motion Capture for Human Skeletal Modeling in Natural Environments

    SBC: APDM, INC.            Topic: AF141029

    ABSTRACT:Analysis of human movement with motion capture systems is used in many applications in the domains of health care, military training and simulation, sports, and entertainment. The requirements of these applications have driven the development of new motion capture technologies to improve accuracy, automation, portability, and cost. There is no single motion capture technology that is well ...

  2. Standard Inline Non-destructive Determination of Prepreg Resin Impregnation Level

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF141165

    ABSTRACT: The Level of Impregnation (LOI) of resin in prepregged composite materials is critical to the quality and performance of finished Out-Of-Autoclave (OOA) composites.The widespread transition to OOA composites is reliant upon consistent material manufacture, which is jeopardized by the lack of a test methodology capable of accurately measuring LOI.Test techniques currently in practice are ...

  3. Formal Synthesis and Verification Techniques for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: SIFT's Phase 2 Hy-CIRCA proposal builds on progress in Phase 1 to address the challenge of effectively, reliably, and safely tasking cooperating teams of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPSs). SIFT's Playbook(tm) interface approach provides high-level, goal-based tasking for multi-agent autonomous missions. SIFT's Cooperative Intelligent Real-Time Control Architecture (CIRCA) automa ...

  4. Acoustic Emission of Frangible, Composite, Concrete and Metallic Radar Towers

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF161011

    ABSTRACT: A novel hybrid acoustic emission (AE) and guided wave (GW) inspection approach for the inspection of radar towers is presented in this proposal. Many radar sites are over 50 years old and it is important to keep them in good repair, as they are a critical intelligence component that provides advanced aircraft notification. It is proposed to supplement the passive AE inspection method wit ...

  5. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...

  6. GEMINI: Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161045

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to build GEMINI (Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence), a shared workspace where humans and machines collaboratively assemble intelligence products. In a human-machine team, the collaborators have vastly different-- albeit complementary-- cognitive capabilities. Thus, a central research challenge is to expressively and soundly translate from analyst-centric interfaces (for ...

  7. Modular, Secure and Affordable Design for NextGen ADS-B Integration

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161058

    Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) protocol provides significant benefits such as increased air safety and improved air-traffic conflict detection and resolution since it allows other aircrafts in the vicinity to know their relative positions without relying on an infrastructure. Despite the years of work on the development of standards, testing, etc., the ADS-B protocol does not s ...

  8. SAVANT: Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161063

    SIFT, working with research partner Dr. Richard Linares, proposes to develop SAVANT a Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool. SAVANT will rapidly assess the vulnerability of blue space assets to potential ground and space-based threats, and provide a heightened awareness of the mission impact posed by these threats so that space commanders may make timely decisio ...

  9. Apparatus for Evaluating Chemical Composition of Fuels

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161073

    ABSTRACT: In advanced high-performance military aircraft, the fuel not only serves as the source of energy for the combustion process, but also serves as the primary coolant for all on-board heat sources. As such, the fuel can experience heat loads and temperatures that result in oxidative, or under extreme conditions, pyrolytic decomposition. Such conditions result in compositional changes to the ...

  10. Enhanced Pre-cooling Heat Exchangers for High Mach Flight

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161074

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic vehicles have the capability to provide the United States Air Force with the mission capabilities needed to meet their core missions of air and space superiority, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), rapid global mobility, global strike, and command and control.Current hypersonic vehicles require a first stage to propel the aircraft to flight speeds and a seco ...
