  1. CODE: Cadet Outcomes Development Evaluation

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF182005

    The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) provides an elite undergraduate educational program that integrates academic, military, and athletic programs to develop leaders of character, motivated to lead the Air Force in service to our nation. By the time cadets graduate and are commissioned as second lieutenants they are expected to acquire a combination of knowledge, skills, and responsibilitie ...

  2. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions

    SBC: 3D AERIAL SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF182005

    We propose using an integrated, multi-layered sensing approach for rapidly assessing runway damage (i.e., craters, spall, debris, and unexploded ordinance [UXO]). Within this approach, a fixed wing UAV will be tasked to fly the entire area of interest. Through edge computing and real-time processing of images the system will assess any specific locations in need of more detailed inspection. Curren ...

  3. Human-Machine Teaming in Data Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination-- a Technology Accelerator

    SBC: Cognovi Labs Inc.            Topic: AF182006

    Cognovi Labs Artificial Intelligence technology offers solutions that would result in: 1.) a reduction in Air Force analyst fatigue by aggregating very large unstructured data sets; 2.) analyzing and distilling the data in a variety of ways that will result in a potentially significant decrease in the time from data receipt to actionable intelligence; and 3.) a more streamlined presentation of the ...

  4. Assessing the Feasibility of ALIAS,the Automated Literal Imagery Analysis System

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: AF182006

    NGA Director Robert Cardillo stated during his 2017 Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Keynote Address, If we attempted to manually exploit all of the imagery well collect over the next 20 years, wed need 8 million imagery analysts. We will need to automate 75% of analysts current workload in order to successfully analyze the deluge of imagery. To answer that need, 361 Interactive is developing a co ...

  5. Human-Machine Teaming in Data Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination-- a Technology Accelerator

    SBC: Ascend Innovations,Inc            Topic: AF182006

    ISR Analysts are required to constantly perform at a high level of competence. They are integral in acquiring, analyzing, and disseminating critical and timely information that help ensure the security of our nation. However, these activities are often quite taxing and can quickly leave the analyst fatigued, less vigilant, and/or otherwise impaired. In occupations across the private sector where p ...

  6. A Biopsychosocial Approach to Real-Time Health Monitoring for Performance Optimization of ISR Operators

    SBC: S. A. Wyze Inc            Topic: AF182006

    Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) workflows do not effectively or comprehensively consider the potentially negative impacts of physical and cognitive degradation on human analysts performance. This is particularly true when analysts experience negative effects from fatigue or burnout, which they are unlikely to self-report. Occupational stress can impact quality-of- life, physio ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing Capability for Advanced, Embedded Temperature and Heat Flux Sensors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF182018

    Evaluating the performance of thermal protection systems (TPS) subject to severe heating loads and aerodynamic forces, such as those present in a typical hypersonic T&E or realistic re-entry flow, strongly relies on accurate, high-frequency temperature measurements for selected regions of the heat shield and vehicle body. Development of TPS materials, and mission success, is critically related to ...

  8. Development of 100-kHz-rate non-intrusive and seedless diagnostic technologies for three-dimensional flow density, density gradient and velocity measurements

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF182020

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop Tomographic Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (TFRS) and Multi-line Stereo-PLEET (Picosecond Laser Electronic Excitation Tagging) techniques for real-time and in-situ diagnostics of high-speed flows in AEDC large ground test facilities. TFRS will be ideal for 3D flow density and density gradient measurements at high repetition rates, whereas multi-line ...

  9. Advanced Runway Texture Imitations for Specialized Tiles Fabrication via Selective Laser Melting


    Aircraft tire performance is essential for ground operations. Various test procedures exist to evaluate tire performance and one of these procedures uses runway surface replicas. These replicas are fabricated in the form of tiles by specialized concrete manufacturers. Such an approach is expensive, time consuming, and does not allow for imitation of numerous runway surfaces. One way to create exac ...

  10. Egress Manikin TSPI and Orientation System (EMOS)

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF182025

    An ejection system is designed to rescue the pilot or crew of a military aircraft in an emergency.The seat, parachute and survival pack are also ejected from the aircraft along with the crewmember.The pilot may be ejected at high altitudes and at very high air speeds.However, there is a problem with developing a realistic ejection event for ground based testing.There is a need for a robust and acc ...
