  1. Eddy current detection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lock fastener

    SBC: ALBANY INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop novel eddy current probes based on spin dependenttunneling (SDT) magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to enhance the probability ofdetection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lok fasteners. Preliminaryresults show that the use of shaped excitation coils, together with extremelysensitive SDT sensors properly positioned above the structure under inspection,provides a si ...

  3. Common Data Access Models and Services Using Datalets

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force needs to access a large variety of databases with varying data schemas and storage architectures from an equally large variety of applications. This presents a rewarding but challenging problem of enabling access to these databases via commondata access models and services. This problem, and also its most challenging implementation aspect, is particularly significant in the context o ...

  4. Prediction and Control of Twin-Tail Buffet of Fighter Aircraft

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I work has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of the Multi-Disciplinary Computing Environment (MDICE) for prediction and control of twin-tail buffet of fighter aircraft. Several flow control methodologies have been proposed and appliedsuccessfully to a generic fighter aircraft to reduce the twin-tail buffet responses. A new method of flow control using normal leading-edge blowing has ...

  6. New Design Technologies for Radiation Hardened Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Radiation-hardening by design (RHBD) allows to use available commercial fabrication lines of high performance circuits, but the radiation-hardened (rad-hard) devices and cells require larger area, higher-power consumption, and slower performance. CFDRC incollaboration with Mission Research (David Alexander) and Vanderbilt University (Ronald Schrimpf) is proposing to develop novel, radiation-harden ...

  7. Novel LADAR Signature Exploitation for Obscured Target Environments

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Laser radars (ladars) have been investigated for the detection, classification and terminal tracking of military targets. One area of concern is the performance of automatic target acquisition (ATA) algorithms on targets that are stochastically obscuredby foliage. A program is proposed that will increase the understanding of target obscuration while increasing the set of non-proprietary ATA algo ...
