  1. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF04165

    The AEgis Technologies Group, Inc. proposes to develop a 2D focal plane array UV/VIS light modulator using MEMS-based diffractive grating technology that will greatly enhance the capability of HWIL test systems. Grating ElectroMechanical Systems (GEMS) technology developed by Kodak Eastman will be enhanced and modified to accomplish a wideband, analog modulator capable of providing significantly h ...

  3. Graphical Indexes for Aircraft Legacy Data

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF03274

    update tech abThe primary goal of this project is to design, develop, and demonstrate an electronic enterprise-wide single integrated environment for mechanics and engineers that will allow them to access applications based on their Lean environment. The old approaches to "systems" just don't apply anymore, and a simpler more focused approach is needed. Industry is learning that existing systems s ...

  4. Pilot Extraction Tool

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF04128

    The air force is phasing out the F-15 a very successful fighter jet but in a constant pursuit of air supremacy the air force has invested in a new fighter that will take its place. The f-22 will replace the F-15, it has been designed to have more stealth capabilities and be quicker and more agile than its predecessor.

  5. Next Generation Confined Space Monitoring & Inspection System

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF04257

    Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) is one of the major service depots responsible for maintaining U.S. Air Force weapon systems, including the B-1B Lancer, the B-52 Stratofortress, the KC-135 Stratotanker, and the E-3 Sentry. Many of these planes have been in service for a great number of years, and thus suffer from fatigue and wear. A great deal of effort is put into inspecting these air ...

  6. Robust Bearings and Gears


    Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without any lubricant whatever. Current materials and coatings that meet some of these conditions fail when subjected to the others. Now a breakthrough in surface engineering technology can precisely control deposition of c ...

  7. Deployment Survivability for Mobile Ground Stations


    The overall goal of Phase II is to develop a powerful tool to correlate large amounts of asynchronous data in near real-time and meet current operational requirements for the Joint Command and Control Community for rapid, accurate Battle Damage Assessment and operational assessment. The team will build upon a successful research project in Phase I in which the team was able to demonstrate that cog ...

  8. Measurement of Angular Valve Displacement in High Vibration Environments

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF04291

    The primary cause of failure of Series 600 angular displacement transducers used as valve position indicators in the flow test facilities at AEDC are bearing wear. The root cause of these failures are most likely excessive load on the shaft of the transducer. Streamline Automation proposes to address this problem by developing a new shaft coupling that will reduce axial and bending loads on the ...

  9. Practical CFD Models for Predicting Lean Blowout and Ignition in Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF03168

    Current steady-state CFD combustion codes cannot predict transient combustion phenomena, such as Lean BlowOut (LBO) and ignition in gas turbine combustion systems (e.g. main combustors, interstage turbine burners, and augmentors). In this SBIR, we propose to develop an innovative analytical capability so the combustor designer can address operability issues. The key to predicting LBO/ignition is ...

  10. An Advanced Numerical Tool for Simulating and Optimizing Spray Cooling in Micro-Gravity

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF03175

    Under AFRL SBIR Contract F33615-03-M-2384 Phase I, CFDRC has developed and demonstrated the foundation of a comprehensive code for modeling spray cooling hardware for micro-gravity applications. The code includes effects that are critical in micro-gravity and cannot be thoroughly investigated using gravity dominated ground-based experiments. In Phase II, this code will be further developed, refin ...
