  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. Development of an Innovative Practical UAV with no Moving Aerodynamic Control Surfaces

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05246

    Prior to this project, zero net mass flux Synthetic Jet Actuators (SJAs) were used primarily as a mechanism to keep flow attached that would otherwise be separated. Thus, SJAs located near a wing’s leading edge have been shown in experimental projects such as the NASA/GTRI Stingray UAV to be effective for producing forces and moments suitable for flight control only at high angles of attack. I ...

  3. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structures for Small UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05T019

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated, and our research institution partner Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will continue development of our unique two-stage Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) system for the design of highly integrated miniature broadband antennae for small UAVs. The concept of structurally-integrated multifunction antennae embedded into airframes is central to the DoD’s "smart sk ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software

    SBC: CEM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T018

    Accurate numerical predictions of antenna performance on aircraft are important in many problems of avionics design and integration. In particular, such predictions are needed to determine optimal antenna placement on aircraft in order to achieve required coverage. The focus of this project is an investigation and development of new high-frequency computational methods and codes for accurate and e ...

  8. UV TO IR LIGHT EMITTER

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: AF06T034

    Cermet, Inc in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology proposes to develop ZnO based light emitter with light emission wavelengths ranging from UV to IT. On successful completion of the proposed effort, the market place will have a unified device structure based ZnO that emits light from UV to IR. The proposed work will be accomplished by the researchers from Cermet and Georgia Institut ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Knowledge-based Technologies to Support Predictive Mission Awareness

    SBC: dNovus RDI            Topic: AF06053

    At a recent DIA briefing to industry, intelligence community representatives reiterated the urgent need for improving the TPED process to meet the operational need to obtain persistent intelligence about on the battlefield. TPED is the process of sensor tasking, sensor processing, sensor exploitation and report dissemination. The requirement to improve the ISR TPED process has been articulated ...
