  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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. ...

  9. 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 ...
