  1. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...

  2. Voice-Interactive Training Environment for Tactical Exercise Familiarization

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF093027

    ABSTRACT: Sonalysts, Inc. proposes to provide the Air Force with a high fidelity PC-based environment to familiarize allied exercise participants with USAF air traffic procedures, tactical airspace operations, communication standards, and rules of engagement of Red Flag exercises in advance of their participation. The objective of Phase II will be to expand the number of mission scenarios and th ...

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: At present, the common practice in the fighter aircraft industry is to use touch probes as secondary measurement systems to maintain tight machining tolerance control. The current touch-probe inspection process renders the typical milling machine idle while features of the machined part are slowly and intrusively being inspected, one feature at a time, over 1.5 to 3 hours per part. To m ...

  4. Bayesian Reliability Assessment of Non-Destructive Evaluation (BRANDE)

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft structural components are prone to damage typically assessed by various NDE tools. Damage to the aircraft structural components decreases operational readiness and compromises safety if improperly maintained; however, frequent inspections and maintenance is expensive. CBM+ equipped platforms, when supported by models and simulations typically experience an increase in operatio ...

  5. Lithium Ion Battery and Ultracapacitors Hybrid for Satellite Power

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF093072

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this Phase II proposal is to develop a hybrid Li-ion/ UCAP system for space power use. Long term space missions utilizing battery based electrical power subsystems often undergo thousands of charge/discharge cycles and short high rate discharge cycles over the length of the mission. During Phase II of this program Yardney in collaboration with Maxwell Technologies propo ...

  6. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines


    ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force and the Department of Defense are investigating synthesis, scale-up and production of novel energetic materials including high energy density compounds and fuels. Five-membered heterocyclic rings containing nitro groups have demonstrated great potential as energetic materials. Synthetic and engineering challenges are impeding scientists from safely producing ...

  7. Novel Oxidizer for Ammonium Perchlorate Replacement

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: AF103211

    ABSTRACT: In an attempt to develop novel oxidizer materials that the DoD requires for use in missile systems to meet performance and sensitivity requirements, NALAS proposes to screen potential candidates for suitability using first known and predicted information. Specific types of materials under consideration will be those possessing intra/intermolecular hydrogen bonds such as those appearing ...

  8. Improved Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) System

    SBC: Embedded Systems, LLC            Topic: AF093174

    ABSTRACT: The proposed single chip SOC ASIC device integrates many diverse and improved functions required for interfacing with most types of FADEC Control sensors and actuators. The SOC is a scalable, flexible and affordable solution that can be used to build Smart Nodes, Data Concentrators as well as many other building blocks or a distributed architecture FADEC or to expand the capabilities of ...

  9. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  10. Context Aware Scalable Dynamic Network (CASDN)


    ABSTRACT: Current air, ground and space networks are very dynamic with large-scale mobility needing human in-the-loop configuration to adapt to unforeseen situations. Humans and current automated systems cannot reconfigure consistently or fast enough. This leads to network performance not meeting mission needs. Airborne, space and ground networks are very dynamic, complex, and hard for the cur ...
