  1. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  2. High-Frequency Energy-Deposition Actuators for Effective Scramjet Control

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic propulsion systems, such as supersonic combustion ramjets (scramjets) are generally expected to operate from Mach 3.5 up to Mach 7-8 and are designed for specific flight Mach numbers to achieve optimum performance. However, realistic flight vehicles will experience a wide range of flight conditions during a typical mission. These off-design flight conditions degrade the perfo ...

  3. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  4. Performance-Based Simulation Certification (SIMCERT) System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF121020

    ABSTRACT: Lumir is developing Sim MD, a multi-dimensional simulation certification system to assess training capabilities of LVC or DMO combat mission training and rehearsal systems. Sim MD provides ready access to valuable data without risk of technical, methodological or political challenges. At the core of Sim MD is the training capabilities assessment tool (TCAT) through which warfighters an ...

  5. Debrief and After-Action Review Technologies for Electronic Warfare Simulation and Training

    SBC: Battlespace Simulations, Inc            Topic: AF121022

    ABSTRACT: Electronic Warfare (EW) will be a critical aspect of potential future conflicts. After years of facing threats without significant EW threats, many EW operators are left with atrophied skills. This lack of real-world experience, combined with the rapid pace at which new threat technology is developed, makes EW training crucial to military operations, and the EW debrief is one of the m ...

  6. I-HAMMER: Interactive Autonomy for Control of Space Assets

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: AF121061

    ABSTRACT: The United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies for surveillance, communications, and navigation. However, our satellites face significant threats from failures, space weather, and orbital debris and must become more survivable. A key component to more survivable satellite systems is on-board autonomy. However, autonomy faces challenges in trust from satellite oper ...

  7. In Situ, Real-time Monitoring of the Properties of Engine Part Coatings

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: AF121172

    ABSTRACT: During the Phase II program Control Vision, Inc. and its partners will have developed and tested an In-Situ, Real-Time optical sensor suite for measuring the physical properties of thermal sprayed gas turbine engine coatings. This sensor suite will be a major step forward in the production of more reliable, lower cost, thermal-sprayed, gas turbine engine coatings. Eventually the senso ...

  9. Air Combat Identification (ACID) Module

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A08198

    In this Phase II SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will develop a full-scale prototype Air Combat Identification (ACID) Module that will improve the accuracy of Track Management or Data Fusion systems when attempting to estimate the identity or classification of an Air target. The underlying technical mechanism by which the ACID module will estimate the targets identity is a Bayesian Netw ...

  10. Surface Engineering Technologies for Improved Gear Efficiency

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12022

    The frictional losses in a gear mesh can be reduced by including super-finishing in the final manufacturing process. Phase I simulation tests of a hypoid rear axle gear shows a reduction in traction coefficient of 50 percent from an"as ground"surface to a high quality super-finished surface. This level of friction reduction is consistent for both low and high speeds. Phase I shows that costly s ...
