  1. Team-based Aircraft Maintainer Support (TAMS)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04060

    Keeping the Air Force assets flying is difficult enough at depot level where there are extensive facilities and expert help. But in an austere environment, these advantages aren’t present. A recent innovation, the Portable Maintenance Aid (PMA), is a new type of tool to help the human through these situations. PMAs are mobile computing devices that can be used at the point of maintenance and ran ...

  2. ArmaNet: Integrated Development Environment (ArmaNet IDE)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04163

    The time and cost it takes to integrate new airborne weapons on platforms is still too great. The current F-15E Strike Eagle weapon integration timeline is 4 years, from requirements to fielding, and costs up to 20 million dollars. What is really needed for rapid aircraft-store integration is a development environment for a “plug-and-play” capability like that of today’s PC-based multi-media ...

  3. Grid-Group Cm-alpha, Profiling Cultural Factors for Decision Aiding

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF05069

    Culturally diverse people are now participating in military multinational coalition applications as well as in extreme environments - once the province of American males drawn from a relatively homogenous cultural pool. Human biases and routines, capabilities and limitations strongly influence overall system performance; whether during operations or in simulations using models of humans. Many mi ...

  4. Actuator Design and Development for Optimized CIC Audio

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05057

    Advancements in subminiature earphone drivers are sought to provide desired improvements in active noise reduction (ANR) earplug attenuation magnitudes and bandwidth. Prior investigations have illustrated a need for improvements in frequency response, sound power output, geometrical configurations, and ease of manufacturing for drivers that are optimized for military ANR earplug applications. Th ...

  5. Fast Angular Rate Miniature Star Tracker

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: MDA04018

    Currently available domestic star trackers, optimized for reliability and maximum accuracy at low angular velocity, are far too heavy, large, and expensive to meet the requirements of microsatellites. An opportunity exists to meet the needs of US microsatellites by developing a highly miniaturized, low-cost star tracker that compromises select, less critical aspects of performance, such as accurac ...

  6. Fast Angular Rate Miniature Star Tracker

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: MDA04018

    AeroAstro proposes to leverage its existing innovative miniature star-tracker design to develop an improved star tracker that provides both spacecraft attitude and angular rate information. The resulting system will have minimal cost and impact to spacecraft resources and can easily handle typical spacecraft tumble conditions and provide for recovery from a lost-in-space (LIS) condition. AeroAstro ...

  7. Borescopic Spatio-temporal Measurements of Droplet Size and Velocity with kHz Resolution

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: AF05307

    Recently our group successfully developed a Digital Particle Image Velocimetry with a sampling frequency as high as 10,000 fps capable of resolving poly-dispersed multi-phase flows simultaneously for all phases present in the flow field. We were successful in developing very sophisticated image processing algorithms and velocity evaluation methodologies that deliver velocity and size measurements ...

  8. UAV Hingeless Flight Controls Via Active Flow Control

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: AF05243

    Limitations of conventional hinged aerodynamic platform controls have sparked interest in new "hingeless" systems, where control is effected through use of synthetic jet actuators and pneumatic circulation control. These new systems' advantages are augmentation of the conventional flight control envelope and a decrease in radar signature during controls actuation. The proposed hingeless flight c ...

  9. A Generalized Communication Interface for Multi-Physics Applications Applied To Reentry Flows

    SBC: AEROSOFT INC            Topic: AF05241

    AeroSoft proposes to develop an application programming interface (API) to connect single-physics based analysis tools used in thermal protection system (TPS) sizing and assessment for trajectory-shaping and reentry vehicles. The API will be based on the message passing interface (MPI) program to allow for efficient execution in parallel computing environments. For the Phase I, the API will couple ...

  10. Advanced Commercially Available Inherently Radhard Primitive Cell Designs.

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Military Satellite Communication (MILSATCOM), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently radhard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes the use of double gated Flexfet technology for ...
