  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 ...

  2. Ad Hoc Routing for Nanosatellite Constellation Communications

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal suggests an approach to providing self-organizing network communications between the nodes comprising a nanosatellite constellation. Using the proposing firm's existing body of work on self-organizing ad hoc networks for 802.11 wireless LANsand miniaturized robotics platforms as a baseline, issues relating to ad hoc networking in a nanosatellite constellations will be identified, a ...

  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. Work-Centered Interface Technology

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The mismatch between worker needs and information systems design and performance has long been noted, and has given rise to a long body of research on ways to factor the user more explicitly into the interface and system design process. Active interfacesthat act as infomediaries between underlying systems and their users, offer the most comprehensive solution to this usability problem, but also po ...

  5. A Decision Aid for a Surveillance Satellite Crew Shift Supervisor

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    To be effective in today's threat environment, the Air Force's Global Engagement doctrine asserts that personnel be responsive, innovative, adaptable, and agile. This will be particularly important for the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Low CrewChief. The SBIRS Low Crew Chief will have to manage a team with frequently changing personnel, groups of personnel with different specializations, a ...

  6. Cognitive Demands of Warfighter Readiness

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The intent of the proposed effort is to develop and demonstrate a feasible design for the Cognition-Centered Constructivistic Program of Instruction (C3PI) for Aircrew Planning. C3PI will consist of a set of training interventions that are designed tostrategically build aircrew mission planning proficiency. These interventions will include strategies embedded in the pre-mission planning phase an ...

  7. Adaptive Mesh Controller for Computational Analysis

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    Numerical simulation of store separation from weapons bays or wing pylons is made difficult by the need to move the computational mesh and provide adequate resolution of flow structures that are changing with time. Recent advances in unstructured gridmethods have demonstrated that an adaptive grid, which is coarsened and/or refined to accommodate the motion of the store, is a viable approach for ...

  8. Active Flow Control of Turbulence for Airborne Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    The application of airborne and ground-based high power lasers as Directed Energy (DE) weapons is under consideration for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). Depending upon the integration selected for the laser, varied forms of turbulence is encountered alongthe beam propagation path, e.g. turbulent boundary layer, free shear layer, or wake. Flowfield turbulence creates a highly non-uniform and time- ...

  9. Flow Control for Vehicle Populsion/Weapons Integration

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    An internal aircraft weapons bay, when exposed to freestream flow, experiences an intense aeroacoustic environment and varied suppression concepts have been tested for attenuating flow-induced oscillations. Recent tests with open-loop, high-frequencyexcitation have shown great promise in providing broadband attenuation and elimination of tones. High frequency actuation apparently alters the dyna ...
