  1. High Thermal Conductivity Gaskets Based On Carbon Nanotube Vertical Arrays

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: Through the Phase II program, NTL will finalize the materials development and demonstrate the ability of a TIM material based on carbon nanotube vertical arrays to meet general requirements for space applications. In addition we will define and initiate tests required for a specific Air Force application. NTL will not only demonstrate a heat transfer coefficient greater than 45,000 W/ ...

  2. New Radar Exploitation Methods for Combat Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF131130

    ABSTRACT: Current automatic target recognition (ATR) training processes require expensive data collections or extensive, high fidelity target modeling and validation whose costs and lead times will limit the ongoing sustainability of ATR target databases. Radar based systems for combat identification (CID) suffer from sustainability issues due to the extreme complexity of the target databases an ...

  3. Advanced Chip Integration for Enhanced Arrays


    ABSTRACT: Improvements such as increased array size and better non-uniformity correction have been made to resistive emitter arrays fabricated on silicon (Si). There exist additonal wavelengths of interest whose emitter devices require fabrication in other materials, such as gallium arsenide (GaAs). For both Si and GaAs substrate materials, attempts to"tile"small arrays into larger ones for reaso ...

  4. Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: ENGINE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: Desired tactical requirements for unmanned aerial systems (UASs) exceed current capabilities for performance, reliability, maintainability, cost and supportability. Mission requirements such as extended endurance, increased power for auxiliary/sensor systems, and low altitude, low speed maneuverability are becoming paramount, specifically, in the 10,000 lb class of vehicles. These desi ...

  5. Compact, High Torque, Hinge Actuator for Next-Generation Thin-Wing Aircraft Flight Control

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: AF131168

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking a compact, high torque, rotary EMA technology capable of controlling flight control surfaces directly at the hinge line in the next generation of thin-wing aircraft. Proposed for this application is an advanced EMA technology based on an axial flux, permanent-magnet machine structure. The unique shape of this device enables efficient integration into the wing ...

  6. Frequency Domain-based Electrical Accumulator Unit (EAU)

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF131172

    ABSTRACT: The move towards more-electric aircraft continues to increase the complexity of electrical power systems (EPS) on modern airborne platforms. In addition to ever expanding peak and regenerative power demands, several of the loads can introduce very high rates of current change (dI/dt) within the EPS, all of which implies significant spectral power across a wide range of frequencies. Re ...

  7. CANTO: The Constructive Agent NLI Toolkit

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131028

    ABSTRACT: SIFT will dramatically improve the Air Force's ability to train using synthetic teammates by leveraging prior synthetic teammate research to develop a generalized and reusable natural language interaction (NLI) development toolkit for constructive agents. We will simplify the creation of constructive agents by making it easy to develop and test the required situation and linguis ...

  8. Advanced Corrosion Resistant Coating Systems for Preservation of Aerospace and Infrastructure Systems Used in Military and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Porter Scientific, Inc.            Topic: AF112217

    ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to prevent the intrusion of moisture associated waterborne ions and the diffusion of oxygen to the metallic ...

  9. A High Performance 90nm"Schottky"CMOS Process for Mitigation of Parasitic Bipolar Effects and Dramatically Reduced Bit Upset Rates

    SBC: Avolare 2, LLC            Topic: AF103087

    ABSTRACT: Avolare2 proposes to establish a 90nm metal source/drain"Schottky"CMOS process at Cypress Semiconductor"s high volume manufacturing facility in Bloomington, MN. Schottky CMOS will have a profound impact on the performance and reliability of most of the integrated circuits (ICs) providing critical functionality for electronic systems operating in high radiation environments. The Schottk ...

  10. Nondestructive Damage Characterization of Complex Aircraft Structures by Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF121129

    ABSTRACT: Computational electromagnetics and inverse methods are the foundations of modern methods of eddy-current nondestructive evaluation (NDE). In this project, we apply these methods to the problem of characterizing, in three dimensions, damage in complex aircraft structures. As the maintenance of the structural components of aircraft moves from time-based maintenance to condition-based mai ...
