  1. Advanced Neurocontrol Methods for a Remotely Piloted Vehicle

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I we will advance and develop innovative Adaptive Critic based neural network control methodologies specifically for a Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV) based upon the aerodynamics of the National AeroSpace Plane (NASP). Phase II will involve the actual implementation which will prove these neurocontrol concepts. This work will be the first step in creating the complex aerocontroller for ...

  2. Aerodynamic Drag Reduction

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Accurate Automation will design a weakly ionized gas drag reduction system for an advanced fixed wing aircraft. To this end we will develop a theoretical model for the WIG drag reduction phenomena, initiate a series of two dimensional shock tank experiments, evaluate the engineering feasibility of employing the technology on an operational aircraft, and perform a conceptual design for a wind tunn ...

  3. Agent-Based Planning Execution and Monitoring

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Superior information over one's adversary allows control of the battlespace, and ultimately provides opportunities to tales advantage of me adversary's vulnerability. C4I planning is critical to shape and control the pace and phasing of battlespace engagements, and requires direct access to battlespace information in order to utilize it effectively. Effective C4I planning requires the ability to ...

  4. Fluoropolymer Coating by In-Situ Polymerization on Dispersed Aluminum Nanoparticles

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nanophase metal particles are becoming increasingly important in areas such as powder metallurgy, catalysis and energetic materials. One of the more important nanophase metals is aluminum . Although several promising routes for the production of this material exist, not one of these synthesis techniques have successfully addressed the issue of the oxidation of these same nanoparticles, which lea ...

  5. Rechargeable Lithium-ion Cells Containing Ambient Temperature Molten Salts

    SBC: Electrochemical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Feasibility of rechargeable lithium-ion cells utilizing two ambient temperature molten salt electrolytes will be investigated. The anions of these electrolytes will be resistant to oxidation; the cation of one of the electrolytes will be resistant to both oxidation and reduction; therefore, in such electrolytes both cathode and anode will be electrochemically stable. The electrolytes will be pre ...

  6. NOVEL INFRARED PHOTON DETECTOR

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a new kind of photon detectors based on the photo-induced stress in semiconductor microcantilevers. We will measure the photo-induced stress for various semiconductor materials as a function of a number of parameters such as microcantilever geometry (length, width, thickness), input radiant power, and modulation frequency of input radiant power. This information will allow ...

  8. Plasma Ignitor- Aeroramp Injector for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors

    SBC: Fluidyne Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The US Air Force plans to develop and demonstrate an aero-propulsion engine for hypersonic flight to Mach 8. This program focuses on use of hydrocarbon fuels and expendable engine designs for long-range cruise missile applications. A critical element for realization to the Air Force's hypersonic vehile mission is advancement in supersonic combustion ramjet engine technology. Development of conc ...

  9. Sensing Surface Temperature of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) Materials

    SBC: FLUORESCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FluoreScience, Inc. is proposing an innovative thermometry technique for measuring the surface temperature of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) that are critical to the success of new, high performance turbine engines in the Air Force IHPTET program. The technique, phosphor thermometry, is based on the temperature dependence of the fluorescence of refractory phosphors deposited in thin ...

  10. Rapid Direct Connection Technology

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    As pulsed power devices mature a requirement emerges for the efficient coupling of the power source of remote locations. For certain applications this coupling can take the form of existing high power switch/conditioning technology coupled with a suitable transmission line. For mobile, remote or harsh environments standard connection techniques are too bulky and require too much set-up time to b ...
