  1. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  2. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...

  3. Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation: From Landmarks via Bearing to Controls

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT030

    The proposed Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation System will enable UGVs to operate semi-autonomously with minimal input from an operator even in degraded communication environments. Semi-autonomous landmark-based navigation in low-texture indoor environments is difficult due to the lack of distinctive micro-features needed by conventional algorithms such as SIFT and SURF. In Phase I, Intelligent Aut ...

  4. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The overall goal of this STTR program is to develop an efficient, high-fidelity, CFD-based design tool for the simulation of ship-board flight testing of autonomous UAV systems. In the first phase of this program, an overall flight simulation framework that employs a modular approach to the flight simulation problem was developed. Phase II of the program demonstrated a fully coupled aircraft/ship ...

  6. Wideband RF Photonic Link with Real-Time Digital Post Processing

    SBC: Pharad, LLC            Topic: N14AT023

    Pharad is teaming with the Applied Physics Laboratory of The Johns Hopkins University to propose and investigate the feasibility of wideband (VHF to SHF) RF-to-digital photonic link architectures with real-time digital signal processing (DSP) that can meet the stringent performance metrics of military systems. The key requirements for our wideband DSP linearized RF-to-digital photonic link include ...

  7. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  9. Design Optimization and Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N14AT005

    Historically, aircraft engines have featured relatively simple axisymmetric exhaust shapes with several moving parts; however, future engine exhaust systems are expected feature compact, sinuous ducts with complex non-axisymmetric shapes, fixed exit areas, thrust vectoring etc., constructed with a minimum number of moving parts. Their exhaust plumes are currently not well understood; however, LES ...

  10. Coupled Multi-physics Analysis and Design Optimization of nozzles (COMANDO)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N14AT005

    The US Navy faces daunting energy challenges that will further increase in severity, given the ever-increasing global demand for energy, diminishing energy supplies and demand for enhanced environmental stewardship. Navys environment foot print consists of both emissions and noise generated every day around the world. Additionally, noise is an important issue for the Navy due to the adverse effect ...
