  1. Adaptive Compressed Sensing for Mission Prioritized Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Leskiw Associates            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) of complex systems is challenging in many respects. Vast amounts of data are typically generated, which need to be transmitted, stored, and analyzed. Traditionally, such testing has been"stove-piped,"with the data in one domain collected and analyzed independently of the others. Nowadays, however, T & E activities are being integrated. And dynamical a ...

  2. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. and Princeton University propose to develop a computational framework for accurately and efficiently modeling the full set of physics associated with aircraft operations. The critical attributes of the proposed framework are accuracy, computational efficiency, and inclusiveness. More accurate computational models will support higher fidelity analysis during the air ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Within the last decade, game theoretic approaches have emerged as viable tools to analyze distributed wireless resource allocation problems and design distributed transmission strategies. Conventional game theoretic designs for wireless resource allocation problems do not consider jamming issues in the context of network utility maximization. These conventional game theoretic designs ar ...

  6. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Multiscale Design Systems, LLC            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to establish a non-destructive, three-dimensional, image-based analysis protocol for inhomogeneous materials that inherently considers the heterogeneous nature of condensed matter. The process begins with a 3-D assessment of the internal material structure performed using a high-resolution micro-CT scanner. Next, reconstruction of a statistically optimal RUC will be per ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Nanosensor Switches for Detection of Toxins, Pathogens, and Small Molecules

    SBC: APTAMATRIX, INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: This phase I STTR project is a proof of concept study for developing near real-time, nanoparticle based sensors that detect the presence of specified toxins, pathogens, proteins, metabolites and small molecules. The specificity and sensitivity of this"nanosensor"is imparted by aptamer recognition that is engineered into a novel, patented technology we termed as an Alloswitch. These Allo ...

  9. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: The extreme toxicity of organophosphate (OP) chemical warfare agents (CWA) is due to their specific, rapid, and irreversible reaction with cholinesterase enzymes. A significant portion of this reactive nature of OP agents is directly due to the unique metabolically active environment found in and around cells. The goal of this proposal is to harness this unique intracellular environme ...

  10. 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 ...
