  1. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    Roughly 40% of USAF maintenance records have poorly coded work unit codes.This degrades aircraft pre-induction analysis and fleet-wide analysis of top drivers.Manual methods to scrub the data take years to develop for each air platform.Cybernet designed a machine learning algorithm to automatically correct coding errors without expert input.The Smart Data Cleanser (SDC) performed 4 years of work i ...

  2. NDI Tracker for Mobile C-Scan Generation

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: NonDOD

    The aircraft Nondestructive Inspection Section, 76 AMXG/MXDEN needs a more efficient and effective means to track surface inspections, specifically Ultrasonic (UT) thickness measurements.UT thickness inspections are part of a daily workload for 76 AMXG/MXDEN and can occur on each aircraft that is inspected.Close-range, hand-held UT thickness measurement are currently recorded manually using pencil ...

  3. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17CT03

    Earths outer radiation belt, which consists of electrons with hundreds of keV to MeV energies, is a highly dynamic and driven environment.The large variations in electron flux, if unaccounted for, can cause satellites that travel through this complex region to experience anomalous behavior ranging from temporary satellite outages due to electrostatic discharge events in system electronics to poten ...

  4. NEUTRON: Network Enforcement Using TRansctiONs

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF17BT004

    SIFT proposes Network Enforcement Using TRansactONs (NEUTRON) a dynamic fine-grained network enforcement policy design that captures network dependencies.NEUTRON closes the knowledge gap between mission needs and observed network traffic to increase mission network awareness. Then using that knowledge develops a revolutionary security enforcement policy based on network transactions.It reduces the ...

  6. Improved Turbochargers for Small IC Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF181028

    During the Phase I, Baker Engineering Inc. (BEI) proposes to research the feasibility of developing an advanced micro-turbocharger that can be applied to small UAS propulsion systems in the 2-20 horsepower range. BEI will focus the research and design efforts on a micro-turbocharger to fit the 3W-28i propulsion platform (ScanEagle UAV). Incorporating a specially designed micro-turbocharger system ...

  8. Thermographic NDE of Bond Interface Integrity in Thermal Spray Coating

    SBC: THERMAL WAVE IMAGING INC            Topic: AF181049

    In Phase I of this SBIR project, we will determine the feasibility of a novel approach to active thermography for quantitative NDE of both thermal and cold spray coatings used in manufacture, maintenance and repair of hot section components. Our approach, Active Interleaved Thermography (AIT) builds on our extensive experience in NDE of Aerospace and Industrial Gas Turbine (IGT) TBCs, and leverage ...

  9. Non-Destructive Evaluation of Thermal Spray Coatings Using Ultra-High Frequency Micro-Induction Inspection Technology

    SBC: GRID LOGIC INCORPORATED            Topic: AF181049

    The U.S. Air Force needs to non-destructively and easily inspect thermal spray metallic and ceramic thermal spray coatings on critical surfaces of gas turbines. Current methods fail to adequately detect sub-surface and interfacial defects, and are cumbersome to use, particularly with conformal geometries.Issues exist with capturing accurate measurements over a range of coating and substrate materi ...

  10. Adaptable SoS Environment for M&S Tools

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF181063

    Military sensor models comprise software codes that represent specific sensor technologies, such as infrared, radar, and LiDAR, so that sensor systems can be designed and integrated into Air Force platforms.Operating these codes requires system designers to expend considerable effort in translating the inputs and outputs of the various codes so that they interface properly. Integrating multiple se ...
