  1. Damage Identification Algorithms for Composite Structures

    SBC: Aerobotix, Inc            Topic: AF06097

    Current survivability and engineering requirements for airframe platforms necessitate the automated application of specialty coatings to the composite inlet duct OML surface. The specialty coatings have tight specification tolerances for the final thickness. Current equipment does not allow for accurate measuring of the specialty coatings. Measurement techniques and equipment need to be develop ...

  2. Sensing of Upper Atmosphere

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: AF06246

    Accurate observations and forecasts of meteorological conditions in the battlespace are of extreme importance to the most effective employment of military assets. In many instances, it is not possible to gather in-situ meteorological data by routine means such as sounding balloons carrying radiosondes. There is a need to provide a means by which such data may be gathered with the requisite accur ...

  3. Protective Coating for Large-Diameter Bearing Races


    Critical large bearings in the F-35 thrust vector system must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat and corrosive attack from salt air and fluorinated lubricant at elevated temperatures. A unique patented Filtered Arc Plasma Source Ion Deposition (FAPSID) process developed by Arcomac Surface Engineering will deposit an atomically bonded, multiple layered, integrated coatin ...

  4. Network Threat Monitoring, Intrusion Detection and Alert System for Distributed Mission Operations (DMO)

    SBC: BRUSHFIRE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF06018

    Brushfire Technologies proposes to adapt our secure local area network gateway to the unique requirements of the DMO network to detect, analyze and mitigate security threats in real time with no adverse affects on network performance. Security analysis based on real time packet inspection coupled with application awareness and heuristically derived network topology information provides unpreceden ...

  5. Non-Dissipative LES Design Tool for Turbulent Combustion and Acoustics Analysis of Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05178

    Combustion LES is a high fidelity CFD method that can analyze transient/acoustic challenges that previously were impossible to analyze with conventional CFD. However, excessive calculation times hinder the use of LES as an effective design tool. To make LES more practical, we propose to develop and validate a next generation combustion LES code that can solve 10M cell grids in less than one day, ...

  6. A Comprehensive Modeling Tool for Cold Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05130

    Under AFRL Contract FA8650-05-M-5214 Phase I, CFDRC has developed and demonstrated the foundation of a comprehensive code for modeling the Cold Hearth Melting (CHM) processing of Titanium alloys. The code includes effects that accurately predict the transient temperature distribution, flow patterns, skull shape, species evaporation, and particle fates in the hearth region for a given set of dynam ...

  7. An Integrated Laser Based Rocket Chamber Ignition and Wall Diagnostics System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05202

    CFDRC proposes the integration of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) with its maturing Laser Induced Spark (LIS) technology for rocket chamber and ultimately in-flight engine health monitoring. During Phase I CFDRC and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) completed quantitative LIBS measurements of bi-propellant combustion equivalence ratio while simultaneously demonstrating ...

  8. Advanced Multidisciplinary Tool for Dynamic Loads Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05318

    Aerospace vehicles that perform aggressive maneuvers are subject to several dynamic loads problems such as buffet and flutter. Unsteady computational aeroelastic simulations of these problems require careful attention to the physical modules of fluid and structures, as well as, to the fluid-structure interfacing and fluid-grid movement. In the Phase I study, a novel solid-brick analogy (SBA) was d ...

  9. A New Method for Automation and Optimization of the Curve Fit Kinetics Generating Process

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05194

    Run-time and convergence requirements limit practical Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) combustion simulations to simplified chemistry, such as multi-step global kinetic mechanisms. Current methods available for generating reduced global mechanisms are tedious, and the resultant mechanisms often lack accuracy. What is needed, and proposed for development in this SBIR effort, is a software packa ...

  10. A Coupled Transport and Fate Model for Health and Environmental Effects

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05316

    We propose to develop a Health and Environmental Risks Assessment Capability (HERAC) that will allow Air Force personnel and related contractors to develop actionable, scientifically based, health and environmental risks assessments of maintenance tasks upon aircraft and other weapons. Presently, no capability exists to effectively model and simulate the microscale (from 2 to 50 feet) transport an ...
