  1. Flow-Field Seeding Techniques for Large Transonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF06297

    Optical measurements including laser velocimetry (LV), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and other similar techniques are becoming a more important part of aerodynamic testing. However their implementation into large production wind tunnels is severely hindered by difficulties with flow seeding. Phase I of this program will focus on the problem of seed delivery and dispersal into a transonic strea ...

  2. Commercially Rad-hard Advanced Digital Library (CRADL).

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Air Force and agencies like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently rad-hard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes a new core cell library that can meet next generation high ...

  3. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills.

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    The use of carnauba wax in melt/castable explosives yields a insensitive explosive formulation that enhances overall safety for the use of these munitions in the field. However, carnauba wax is only obtained from overseas sources and there is no domestic source for this material. This leads to shortages of material and higher prices. There exists a need for a wax substitute to replace the carna ...

  4. End-to-End QoS IP Techniques for Heterogeneous Networks (EQuIP)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF05087

    Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide end-to-end security and QoS provisioning to multimedia flows and mission critical data. During Phase I, ...

  5. High Specific Power, Rapid Start-up 95 GHz Source Technology

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: OSD05D02

    Since the 1990's, applications requiring high power (>1 KW) millimeter wave energy have relied on either gyrotrons or multiple gryotwystron amplifiers. While the gryotwystron approach offers bandwidth and single point failure benefits, it is inherently more complex and larger than that of the single gyrotron. The gyrotron however requires a superconducting magnet to create the 3.7 Tesla field ne ...

  6. Requirements-Based Cost Models

    SBC: INRAD            Topic: OSD05CM3

    Accurate projection of costs remains an intractable problem in the defense industry despite more than a decade of focus on affordability. The impact to DoD acquisition programs, from cost escalation and the cost of countering capability shortfalls, runs to billions of dollars annually. The objective of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate an ontology-based framework for requirements-based ...

  7. Concept-based Information Retrieval and Fusion Engine

    SBC: IXMATCH, INC.            Topic: OSD03030

    Existing search technology is inadequate for addressing the information retrieval requirements of today's complex tasks that require the integration of information from multiple and heterogeneous sources, the discovery of arbitrary and non-obvious relations between the documents, and the uncovering of information that is intentionally trying to hide. The goal of this project is to advance the stat ...

  8. Fatigue Resistant Wire for Airborne Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF06132

    The gradual degradation of wiring systems in aircraft is a serious concern plaguing the Air Force's aging fleet. It has been observed that the majority of wire breakage problems occur within nine inches of the connector, terminal lug, or other junction. In many cases, the wiring was not properly relieved of strain near the junction points. Traditional wires are by nature inelastic under stress, ...

  9. A Fast and Accurate System to Characterize Particle Emission from Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: AF06301

    Routine Air Force operations generate particulate emissions at bases around the country. Many bases are located in air quality non-attainment zones, and at these locations all air emissions are coming under increasing scrutiny. The current method to test particle mass emission from aircraft turbine engines (EPA Method 5) is not ideal, because it requires long run times and concomitant high jet f ...

  10. Magnetic Operational Environment Sensor

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: OSD05A05

    This Phase I SBIR program will design and manufacture an environmental sensor that is sensitive to the earth's magnetic fields. The device is ideal for "black-box" attacks because it is sensitive to changing environmental conditions with and without power. The sensor requires no internal power supplies or batteries. The device is microelectronic compatible which allows it to be very small and e ...
