  1. 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. Novel Extensible Design Approaches for Advanced Aircraft Composite Structural Architectures (MSC P4168)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: ST13A006

    Among the factors that inhibit the use of composite materials in both general aviation aircraft and DoD platforms are the relatively high cost of engineering and certification. Unless manufacturers control risk when introducing new or advanced materials and processes for aircraft, the potential benefits will be lost to the industry. For small commercial applications the problem is compounded by ...

  9. Effective Cyber Situation Awareness (CSA) Assessment and Training

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T08

    The recent increase in cyber attacks against United States critical assets has greatly expanded the need for effective cyber defenses. Human cyber analysts are an essential element in these efforts. Information overload and a concomitant lack of comprehensive cyber situation awareness are common problems that hamper the effectiveness of analysis. Systems that can carry out human-in-the-loop simula ...
