  2. Development of an Integrated Multi-mode Propulsion system for UAS Leveraging Speed and Endurance (IMPULSE)

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: AF131159

    ABSTRACT: The goal of the Phase II work is to significantly advance the maturity of the IMPULSE system through the detail design, development, and comprehensive bench testing of its power and propulsion systems. The Phase I conceptual design showed that the system was able to meet the desired performance requirements for a Group 2 SUAS. This work will expand upon this Phase I design, while maintai ...

  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 ...

  9. 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 ...
