  1. Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Virtual Flight Test

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: ZONA proposes to develop a comprehensive virtual flight test software system by enhancing the capabilities of the ZONA's Stick-To-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation (STS-DFS)"previously developed under AFRL contractual support. The current STS-DFS combines flight dynamic model and a nonlinear aeroelastic solver constructed based on neural net-based aerodynamic reduced order model (RO ...

  2. Lightweight Composite/Hybrid Structures with Enhanced Properties

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF10BT27

    ABSTRACT: Future hypersonic vehicles, like X-43 and X-51 derivatives and Falcon HTV-3, will require advanced strategies for thermal protection systems (TPS) and methods of structural integration. The goal in designing TPS for these types of high performance applications is to establish multi-mission reusable systems with reduced weight and increased performance that possess multifunctionality, e ...

  3. Scale up of EO polymers and their utilization in novel nano-imprinted sub-wavelength waveguide-based Modulators and Arrays

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: We present a completely novel design for the polymer waveguide portion of the EO modulators, thereby resolving the fundamentally important low-loss coupling issue. This significantly simplified and elegant design will be fabricated by a nanoimprinting process, making use of electro-optic polymers that have been scaled-up to commercial levels. These polymers will be optimized for the t ...

  4. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The Phase I technical objective is twofold. First, the ZONA/MIT team will develop an Unsteady Aero-Structural Adjoint (UASA) methodology and implement it in a 2-D unsteady Euler solver. The objective of the effort is to investigate and resolve the technical issues involved in the development of the proposed UASA methodology. In this effort, we will first identify the pros and cons of a ...

  5. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop efficient sensitivity analysis methods based on adjoint techniques for multi-disciplinary time-dependent problems. The approach is based on the discrete adjoint, which will be derived and implemented on a software component basis, with the various multidisciplinary software components being linked together through a Python interface, thus pre ...

  6. End to End Trusted Path for Embedded Devices and Applications

    SBC: Cummings Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT15

    ABSTRACT: Smartphones are powerful computing devices that manipulate, store and transmit sensitive data and are becoming increasingly popular for malware attacks as a result. In order to use them for military purposes, a mesh of security techniques are needed in order to contain sensitive data and prevent it from leaving the device in an unapproved manner. Data separation primarily relies on addr ...

  7. An Innovative Software Tool for Blades Stress Estimation during Multiple Simultaneous Vibratory Mode

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT22

    ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of the blade peak stress when multiple modes are important. It is proposed here to construct the blade m ...

  8. Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: In the future, numerous military database, documentation, and mission-critical information systems will be migrated to the clouds, due to cloud cost-efficiency and accessing flexibility. However, the cloud servers are generally untrusted either for data owners or users. In this proposal, A3IS (Attribute-based Algorithms for Assured Information Sharing) is proposed for dynamically and se ...

  9. Design and Analysis of Multi-Core Software

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T03

    We propose a comprehensive software tool called ModelTime(TM)for the design, analysis and construction of multi-core software for distributed real-time systems using a model-based design methodology. ModelTime will use UML-like diagrams to capture networked multi-core platforms, software components and configurations, functional and para-functional attributes like end-to-end timing constraints, a ...

  10. Operating System Mechanisms for Many-Core Systems

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T04

    Overwhelming heat and clocking considerations have led to the accelerating rise of multicore processors. The number of cores per chip is expected to increase rapidly in coming years. In fact, chips with 100 cores and prototypes with 128 cores are already available. As the number of cores increases, the scalability of the operating system(s) will become a major bottleneck, particularly for embedd ...
