  2. A novel Approach for High Rate Production of IR to IR Up-converting Nano-particles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Phosphor materials are currently being utilized in a wide variety of applications. The requirements for phosphors have become more and more stringent with smaller and smaller particles being required. In the Phase I program UES Inc. in collaboration with Penn State University has demonstrated the feasibility of a few approaches for high rate production of high efficiency IR to IR up-con ...

  3. Advanced Optical Diagnostics/Modeling Platform for Plasma Assisted Combustion in Vitiated Air

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas-turbine engines designs for the next-generation warfighter need to reduce exhaust gas temperatures to reduce effective thermal footprint thereby improving the mission capability. In such situations, high-altitude engine operation is often limited by the overall combustion efficiency, lean flame blow out (LBO) limit, and combustion instabilities that results in narrower opera ...

  5. An Immersed Boundary Framework for Topology Optimization of Nonlinear Thermoelastic Structures with Internal Radiation

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    Thermoelastic structures pose a critical challenge to designers due to the inherent design dependence of thermal loading on structural thickness. This is further exacerbated by structural nonlinearity due to in-plane, and more importantly, the out-of-plane bending deformation that further increases the effective loading on the structure. During Phase I of this project, we have added significant ne ...

  8. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...
