The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Automated Sanding of Aircraft Coatings

    SBC: Aerobotix, Inc            Topic: AF071112

    Current survivability and engineering requirements for airframe platforms necessitate the automated application of numerous specialty coatings onto critical surfaces. One such critical surface is an airframes inlet duct OML surface. These specialty coatings have tight specification tolerances for the final thicknesses and surface finish. Sanding is required to meet the final thickness and surfa ...

  2. Advanced MRO Multi-Echelon Planning and Scheduling

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06330

    The objective of this proposal is to identify and integrate multi-echelon constraints in Manufacturing Repair Overhaul (MRO) process planning and scheduling. The OC-ALC depot operates in a multi-echelon MRO environment that is highly constrained regarding its capacities, resources, deadlines, and other physical limitations. The representation, capture, satisfaction and relaxation of these constra ...

  3. Dielectric Measuring Tool for Radome Checkout

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06327

    The main goal of this work is to develop a more reliable, robust, and accurate measurements of radome transmission properties. As a result, we propose a pilot study in order to design a two-horn testing system and provide several prototype radome testing measurements. The proposed two-horn testing system will be mainly focused on transmission efficiency mechanism. The proposed system features a ...

  4. Pattern Recognition for Aircraft Maintainer Troubleshooting

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF05263

    Due to the significant decrease of aircraft parts across the U.S. military over past years, managing parts more efficiently has become a great necessity. The term managing suggests having the data resources available to predict, forecast events or determine an item’s use such as the mission capability of a part or weapon system. The decrease of parts can be attributed to many factors, some of w ...

  5. Head Alignment and Orientation (HALO) System

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF071020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost head tracking system to monitor the orientations of an individual’s head. This head tracker can be incorporated with a 3-D audio system that will provide cues to operators for increasing situational awareness. This proposed system will be based on Archangel’s Inertial Measurement Unit ‘IM3’. The Head Alignment and Orientation (HALO) ...

  6. Configurable Dynamic Strain System

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF071344

    The AEDC Engine Test Facility (ETF) has more than 20 test cells that can be used for testing prototype propulsion systems and components. The testing of propulsion systems requires significant data acquisition capabilities, with one test utilizing more than 4200 channels of instrumentation, including 200 dynamic strain gages. In response to the shear set-up challenge, AEDC has developed the conc ...

  7. Development Novel High-Performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD06PR3

    CFDRC proposes to develop some novel high performance solid propellant that will meet the requirement of Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology (IHPRPT) Phase III goals. The propellants will enhance the performance of space access vehicles, strategic, tactical and missile defense systems. A number of triazole, tetrazole, and tetrazines based solid energetic ionic salts have been prop ...

  8. An Advanced Modeling Tool for Prediction and Alleviation of Turbopump Cavitation Instabilities

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF071204

    We propose to develop an advanced modeling tool to predict and to alleviate cavitation related turbopump instabilities. An existing “full cavitation model” developed by the proposing team and used in commercial CFD codes will be used as the starting point. The model will be improved by: a) introducing Eulerian-Lagrangian coupling for bubble dynamics; b) introducing a multi-scale model to st ...

  9. Model Independent First Principle Method for Prediction of Heat of Condensation/Sublimation of Solid Propellant

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD06PR5

    Prediction of accurate heats of formation of solid propellant has tremendous implication in theoretically evaluating the performance of new generation solid propellants. While state-of-the-art quantum mechanical methods can accurately calculate the heat of formation in the gas phase, heat of condensation (HC) is required to convert this gas phase quantity to solid phase. To our knowledge, all ex ...
