  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. Advanced OSHA Compliant Blast Cleaning Rooms (No Blast/HM Residue Migration Outside Blast Cleaning Room)

    SBC: Immediate Response Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131197

    ABSTRACT: Hexavalent Chromium and other Hazardous Materials (HM) that are prevalent in the Bead Blasting Profession pose a hazard to those directly working in the environment as well as those working around the environment. There is a two stage problem at hand with the USAF and in several other industries working with similar applications: the containment of the HM during operations and the con ...

  3. Low Energy Consumption Compact Control Actuation Systems for Precision Guided Artillery and Mortar Munitions

    SBC: Custom Analytical Engineering Systems, I            Topic: A13013

    Pyrotechnics offer a novel low energy Control Actuation System (CAS) approach reducing limitations associated with typical electro-mechanical CAS. With 2.5 to 3 times more usable energy stored per unit volume and more importantly a power density that is orders of magnitude greater than that of a comparable electromechanical device, a pyrotechnically driven CAS potentially requires less total volum ...

  4. A Network Sensor-Based Defense Framework for Active Network Security Situation Awareness and Impact Mitigation

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF112053

    ABSTRACT: Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, impact, and complexity, which demonstrate extensive vulnerabilities of networks with the potential for catastrophic damage. Defending against these cyber-attacks requires network security situation awareness (SA) through distributed collaborative monitoring, detection, and mitigation. In the Phase I project, IFT team has developed a Network Sen ...

  5. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  6. Laser Survivability Model

    SBC: SURVICE ENGINEERING COMPANY, LLC, THE            Topic: AF112203

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this SBIR program is to develop a validated model that predicts ignition of composite aircraft fuel tanks when engaged by a High Energy Laser (HEL). The primary focus of the Phase I research and development program was to develop a baseline capability for modeling laser-initiated fire ignition and sustainment for composite aircraft fuel tanks. The SURVICE Engineering Compa ...

  7. AUTO-SCAN: Inlet and Exhaust Damage Registration Sensor

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF121C125

    ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting aircraft engine inlet and exhaust cavities are labor intensive and error prone. Airmen crawl into ducts looking for defects, trace suspected sites on Mylar sheets noting their position relative to cavity features, and manually enter the data into an aircraft assessment system. Technology that can reduce inspection times and eliminate sources of human err ...

  8. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  9. Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation: From Landmarks via Bearing to Controls

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A12aT030

    The proposed Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation System will enable UGVs to operate semi-autonomously with minimal input from an operator even in degraded communication environments. Semi-autonomous landmark-based navigation in low-texture indoor environments is difficult due to the lack of distinctive micro-features needed by conventional algorithms such as SIFT and SURF. In Phase I, Intelligent Aut ...

  10. Composite Calibration Standards Kit for Calibration of Multiple Equipment in the AF Inventory Used for Composite Nondestructive Inspection (NDI)

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131193

    To meet the Air Force's need for composite calibration standards that could be used interchangeably for calibration of different type of NDE equipment used in the Air Force for composite NDE, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes an innovative methodology for developing composite NDE standards. The proposed approach builds on the success and expertise of XII in developments of standard meth ...
