  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) Performance Prediction Model

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF06258

    A methodology is proposed to provide intelligence to more classical global optimization schemes. By incorporating these methods, design engineers will be able to not only identify and resolve difficulties within an antenna element, but will be able to synthesis and optimize an entire array, including the antenna elements, feed structures, array position and shape, element location and orientation ...

  5. Anti-Tamper Operational Environment Sensors

    SBC: DBI            Topic: OSD05A05

    The objective of this investigation is to demonstrate an innovative sensor designed to detect when a system has been removed from its operational environment.

  6. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: DMS Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF06298

    The precision with which model attitude and deflection are measured in a wind tunnel is important for determining such quantities as drag coefficient, lift coefficient, moment coefficient and stability derivatives. The assumption that the wind tunnel model is a rigid body, which possesses no extra deflection under load, no flexing under dynamic loading is far from reality. Some of the techniques s ...

  7. Recognizing Target Variants Using Transformational Adaptivity

    SBC: GENERAL INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: AF05219

    Target variation presents a challenge for Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) based on fixed models or signatures. In Phase I General Intelligence refined and applied an extension of the map-seeking circuit (MSC) architecture to recognize articulations, plausible morphs and aggregations of target models. The extended MSC architecture implements a process termed “transformational adaptivity,” ...

  8. No-Bake Powder Coating

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF06328

    The U.S. Air Force desires an airplane painting procedure that produces powder coating quality without the requirement of putting the whole plane in an oven. Resodyn Corporation proposes an innovative no-bake powder coating process that uses thermal spray techniques to melt and cure polymer powders onto large structures without the need of a curing oven. Related development work and preliminary ...

  9. 3D Measurement for Aircraft Maintenance and Part Remanufacture

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF05267

    Those responsible for maintaining the operational status of the aircraft of the United States Air Force face many difficult challenges in completing their mission. With an ever aging, and yet, ever more valuable inventory of older aircraft, the maintenance depots assigned their upkeep and readiness continually work to maximize flight time and minimize costs. As a result, many are looking to tech ...

  10. Multi-Phenomenology Sensing and Sensor Control in Unmanned Intelligence Vehicle (UIV) for ATR and Tracking of Dismounts and Vehicles

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF06223

    Photon-X has developed a novel spatial phase technology that can passively and automatically extract 3-D feature information from a targeted scene in real-time using a single aperture visible or IR camera system. Photon-X will demonstrate the additional benefit derived from this system when combined with legacy sensor systems to create a comprehensive unmanned targeting application. The Photon-X S ...
