  1. Agent-Based Planning Execution and Monitoring


    Superior information over one's adversary allows control of the battlespace, and ultimately provides opportunities to tales advantage of me adversary's vulnerability. C4I planning is critical to shape and control the pace and phasing of battlespace engagements, and requires direct access to battlespace information in order to utilize it effectively. Effective C4I planning requires the ability to ...

  2. Fluoropolymer Coating by In-Situ Polymerization on Dispersed Aluminum Nanoparticles

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nanophase metal particles are becoming increasingly important in areas such as powder metallurgy, catalysis and energetic materials. One of the more important nanophase metals is aluminum . Although several promising routes for the production of this material exist, not one of these synthesis techniques have successfully addressed the issue of the oxidation of these same nanoparticles, which lea ...

  4. Plasma Ignitor- Aeroramp Injector for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors

    SBC: Fluidyne Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The US Air Force plans to develop and demonstrate an aero-propulsion engine for hypersonic flight to Mach 8. This program focuses on use of hydrocarbon fuels and expendable engine designs for long-range cruise missile applications. A critical element for realization to the Air Force's hypersonic vehile mission is advancement in supersonic combustion ramjet engine technology. Development of conc ...

  5. Rapid Direct Connection Technology


    As pulsed power devices mature a requirement emerges for the efficient coupling of the power source of remote locations. For certain applications this coupling can take the form of existing high power switch/conditioning technology coupled with a suitable transmission line. For mobile, remote or harsh environments standard connection techniques are too bulky and require too much set-up time to b ...

  6. CAD Conversion Tools for VHDL-AMS Library Generation

    SBC: FTL Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project enables and incentivizes adaptation of IEEE Draft Standard 1076.1 (VHDL AMS) by mixed signal (analog/digital) engineers by providing a feasible, low risk migration path for existing SPICE like models (equivalence), then adds capability beyond that of SPICE (incentive). Specific work items include "black box" VHDL AMS source code generator technology, SPICEcompatible analog solver tech ...

  7. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  8. Advanced Adaptive Autopilot for Precision Guided Munitions


    The opportunity exists to apply evolving technology for nonlinear adaptive control to autopilot design for precision guided munitions. The approach employs artificial neural networks to represent errors made in inverting the nonlinearities in a feedback inverting controller. Using an on-line method for weight adaptation results in a highly effective local approximator to the inversion error. Re ...

  9. Damage Detection in Aircraft Using Giant Magnetoresistance Sensors and Remote Field Eddy Current Techniques


    We propose the development of an improved crack and corrosion detection system for hidden defects in multilayered metal structures typical of aircraft. Remote field eddy current (RFEC) techniques will be combined with an array of sensitive, broadband, giant magnetoresistance (GMR) sensors to detect damage deep within the structures. The system offers improved detection without the limitations of ...

  10. Mechanically Hard, Event Recorder with Nonvolatile Memory


    A data recording system will be designed that will be smaller than the recorders presently available and contain high speed nonvolatile memory to guard against data loss when power fails. Various nonvolatile memory technologies will be investigated including a new memory technology called MRAM (magnetoresistive random access memory) which has all the characteristics required including fast write ...
