  2. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  3. Cyber Craft System Scaling

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: OSD06IA5

    Many technical challenges will need to be surmounted to create practical cybercraft: assurance, control, rules of engagement, representation and discovery of the target environment, among others. However a serious challenge lurks behind all of these: scaling solutions to fleets of up to a million craft. New approaches are needed to deploy and control the craft at this scale. Failure to come to gr ...

  4. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    Due to the phasing out of TNT usage in explosives due to safety and environmental concerns, insensitive explosives utilizing wax binders instead of TNT have gradually replaced TNT in bombs and other explosive shells. The wax material that has been the most utilized in this application has been carnauba wax, but due to its non-domestic production and its dependence on natural growth and harvest me ...

  5. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    The activity of an OS kernel may be monitored dynamically in real time. As the kernel executes, the transition among the constituent components of the kernel will follow a predictable pattern representing the normal operation of the kernel. An attack on the operating system will induce a significant and immediately recognizable disturbance in this pattern of normal activity. The Attack Recognit ...

  6. Enhanced, All-Weather Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Sense and Avoid (SAA)

    SBC: FLIGHT SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071257

    This SBIR Phase I proposal requests $99739 for Flight Safety Technologies, Inc. to investigate the feasibility and all-weather capability of a novel radar concept as an active, non-cooperative SAA sensor for UAVs. The concept radar, which we call Unicorn, is a narrow-band pulsed radar operating around a center frequency of 5.145 GHz in the aviation C-band, which has been approved for this develop ...

  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. Magnetic Operational Environment Sensor

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

    This Phase II SBIR program will design and manufacture an anti-tamper environmental sensor ideal for preventing “black-box” attacks. The sensor can detect changing environmental conditions from inside a protected cavity with and without applied power. The device is microelectronic compatible which allows it to be very small and extremely versatile. The “black box” can be many sizes and ...
