  1. 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 ...

  2. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  3. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  4. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.

  6. Brahms Contested Airspace Simulation Testbed (Brahms-CAST)

    SBC: Aqru Research and Technology, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: Remarkable advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems integration are providing aircrew with cockpit automation systems of unprecedented sophistication. Onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out pilot commands, and advise the pilot (onboard or remote) as to aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots ...

  7. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  8. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Methodology for prediction of soot build-up in liquid film-cooled rocket engines will be incorporated into the CRUNCH CFD code, using a reduced-mechanism pyrolysis model and soot formation model developed at University of Virginia. A companion experimental program will be conducted at University of Virginia to collect data for calibration of the pyrolysis models for conditions and fuels ...

  9. DIMAGIC: Data Infrastructure for Materials Genome with Innovation and Certification

    SBC: MATERIALS GENOME INC            Topic: AF15AT30

    ABSTRACT: Present CALPHAD software tools do not address data heterogeneity and fragmentation challenges in a way conducive to the feasible development and maintenance of high-quality databases of more than, perhaps, 5 or 6 components, yet alloy systems of commercial interest can easily reach 12-15 components. We propose to use a newly developed thermodynamic software engine and new algorithms to d ...

  10. Improved Materials and Designs for High Pressure Wind Tunnel Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF15AT03

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I effort will identify and evaluate candidate materials to replace existing beryllium-copper alloy components for use in aerospace ground test flow facilities. The candidate materials must offer similar or better performance metrics (dimensional stability, lifetime, etc.), be domestically and readily available, offer similar or cheaper costs, and the ability to withstand temp ...
