  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. 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 is derived and implemented on a software component basis, with the various multidisciplinary software components being linked together through a Python interface, thus preservi ...

  5. Biologically-inspired low light integrated vision systems

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to develop a vision system for a micro air vehicle (MAV) or other robotic system that allows it to operate in extremely low light levels, including in zero light conditions and without reliance on GPS. We propose building two systems. The first system will operate primarily in the visible and NIR domain and utilize silicon based photoreceptor circuits. This system will ...

  6. Uncertainty-Analysis-Driven Reduced-Order Kinetic Models Targeting Combustion Dynamics

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF17AT004

    The design and development of a number of advanced Air Force propulsion systems is substantially limited by the current inability of computational design support tools to adequately and cost-effectively predict the complex flow physics and combustion dynamics that governs system performance and stability. The innovation proposed consists of a comprehensive experimental-modeling framework to (i) sy ...
