  2. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Trusted Semiconductor Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT: Data transmission in communication systems, RADARs, satellite systems, and other military devices are dominated by analog data conversion. High performance, low power digital to analog converters (DAC) that exceed 3Gsps with 12 bits of resolution and are available in the commercial marketplace, but they lack the radiation hardness required to support military satellite applications.Trust ...

  5. Connecting High-Power Jet Noise Characteristics with Human Annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    The proposed effort will correlate perceptual features and physical source characteristics of high-powered military jet noise with human loudness judgments and corresponding annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as shock content perceived as crackle and low-frequency rumble. During Phase II, candid ...

  7. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...

  8. Simplified Aero Model Development and Validation Environment

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: AF161042

    ABSTRACT: Shortcomings, including high costs and lack of realism, associated with classical approaches in aircrew training have motivated the desire to develop a virtual aerial refueling training environment.Such an environment has the potential to provide a cost-effective, realistic environment to perform repetition training.A vital facet of such a training tool is the development of a realistic ...

  9. SAVANT: Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161063

    SIFT, working with research partner Dr. Richard Linares, proposes to develop SAVANT a Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool. SAVANT will rapidly assess the vulnerability of blue space assets to potential ground and space-based threats, and provide a heightened awareness of the mission impact posed by these threats so that space commanders may make timely decisio ...

  10. GEMINI: Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161045

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to build GEMINI (Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence), a shared workspace where humans and machines collaboratively assemble intelligence products. In a human-machine team, the collaborators have vastly different-- albeit complementary-- cognitive capabilities. Thus, a central research challenge is to expressively and soundly translate from analyst-centric interfaces (for ...
