  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. Drag Reduction and Flight Control of External Hypersonic Flows by EHD Plasma Actuators

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF03233

    Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes using its non-intrusive EHD plasma actuator for drag reduction and flight control of hypersonic vehicles. AGT's plasma actuator is comprised of a series of alternating electrodes embedded in a dielectric covering the surface of the hypersonic body. The primary objective of this Phase II effort is to demonstrate the commercial feasibility and aerodynamic enh ...

  4. A Parametric Study of EHD Plasma Actuators for Munition Control

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04166

    The development of subsonic plasma actuators has the potential to revolutionize the flight performance of munitions. The addition of surface mounted flow controllers based on the electrical manipulation of surface plasma to aerodynamic control surfaces has the promise of offering a dynamic in-flight augmentation of the flight characteristics of the munitions. Plasma actuators, physically compr ...

  5. New Decontamination for Aircraft Cargo Interior

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04063

    Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes to develop the Plasma Agent Neutralization Elimination (PLANE) System based upon its patented One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. When developed, this advanced design will serve as a stand-alone system for decontamination of large frame aircraft and assoicated cargo. AGT has demonstrated the success of the OAUGDP in decontamina ...

  6. Superconducting Developments for Compact Power and Energy Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04EP6

    Superconducting coils are capable of storing considerable amounts of energy. Should a coil quench, due to overheating or exceeding the critical field or current carrying ability of the wire, the stored energy in the coil must be dissipated safely - without endangering personnel or damaging the coil or control systems. In any superconducting coil design, it is essential to design and build the sy ...

  7. Filter for Airborne Pollutants and Pesticides

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03121

    Recent terrorist activities leave no question that protection systems for warriors will need to address pesticide and pollutant filtration. Although filters are currently available for particulates, there remains a need for regenerating, signature-less filters that can trap pesticides and biological pollutants. Under Phase II, eSpin proposes to develop and fabricate engineered prototypes of ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
