  5. COAXIS- Course of Action Extra-Intelligence System

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: N14AT024

    COAXIS (Course of Action Extra-Intelligence System) recommends both information relevant to an operational order and a course of action (COA), where COA is defined as a decision of what action to take given a specific situation. COAXIS performs semantic analysis of natural language of an operational order to bridge the world of human-oriented natural language communication of orders to machine ana ...

  8. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N14AT002

    Most of current available methods for prediction of fatigue failure -such as cumulative damage models, cyclic plastic energy hypothesis, crack propagation rate models, and empirically-derived relationships -are based on empirical relations and their application requires many unknown parameters that must be experimentally determined or calibrated for specific locations/critical areas. Also, the afo ...

  10. 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 ...
