  6. Coordination and Performance Metrics in Command and Control Environments

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT09

    Measurement of coordination and performance in team training environments is essential for accurately evaluating training effectiveness and progress. Coordination and performance are tightly coupled. As coordination improves, team performance improves. As command and control systems become larger and more complex, measurement of performance and coordination becomes increasingly difficult. This Pha ...

  9. Novel, High-Temperature Power-Generation for Long Duration Hypersonic Platforms

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT39

    The ability to convert extreme aerodynamic heating into electricity via thermoelectric generators presents a unique opportunity to leverage this otherwise undesirable condition. The harvested energy can be used to power the significant electrical demand of a hypersonic/long range vehicle while also aiding in managing high temperatures. To address this need for an high temperature thermoelectric ge ...
