  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. Corrosion Modeling and Life Prediction Supporting Structural Prognostic Health Management

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF06091

    This proposal offers an approach to integrate the latest corrosion sensor technology with corrosion structural effects modeling to enable the transition from periodic corrosion inspections to an efficient, focused prognostics and health monitoring (PHM) system. The fundamental vision of the proposed program is to provide the customer with a process suitable for integrating corrosion effects analy ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Warpage/Distortion in Machining 7050-T7451 Alloy Components

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: AF06087

    Investigation of the feasibility of development of a mathematical model that will have the capability to provide machine operators with specific guidelines for efficient machining, while minimizing any distortion and warpage, is the main objective of the proposed Phase I effort. The most challenging aspect of this project is the development of a validated mathematical model for the effects of mach ...

  9. Creative Mobile Terrain Sensing Multi-Valued Behavior Robots

    SBC: IMAGINATION ENGINES, INC.            Topic: AF05174

    Within our Phase I effort, a radically new kind of neural network based control system that broadly emulates the contemplative capacity of the human brain has been successfully tested aboard a complex hexapod robot. In the course of this preliminary investigation, this neurocontrol system was able to bootstrap its own locomotive behaviors on demand, integrate camera images and sonar returns to bui ...

  10. A System for Enabling Use of Laser Systems in a Transonic Flow Environment

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF06006

    A system that provides a large field of regard for propagation of a lethal beam from a transonic platform will be evaluated. The proposed design incorporates concepts to address the fact that shocks do develop in transonic flow, but with the proposed system the field of regard should be enhanced. A second feature is provided that allows a simple method of controlling optical aberrations imposed b ...
