  1. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Low ambient temperature influences the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the low temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  2. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Corrosion Modeling and Life Prediction Supporting Structural Prognostic Health Management

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF06091

    This proposal offers the demonstration of an approach to integrate the latest corrosion sensor technology with corrosion structural effects modeling to enable the transition from periodic corrosion inspections to an efficient, focused prognostics and health monitoring (PHM) system. The fundamental vision of the proposed program is to provide the customer with a demonstrated process suitable for in ...

  8. 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) ...

  9. Improving "Trusting the Edge" Through Cryptographic Key Hiding

    SBC: ARXAN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD06I13

    The Security to the Edge strategy identifies a growth area in the development technologies to enable Trusting the Edge; particularly, two research areas are specified: i) hardening an edge node against physical attack; and ii) facilitating the ability of an edge node to monitor and communicate the state of its integrity. The thrust of this proposal is twofold: i) to describe a technique for hidin ...

  10. Enhanced Detection of Hidden Targets Using Multi-Discriminant Ladar

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: AF071156

    Precision weapons using Ladar seekers with automatic target recognition (ATR) will be challenged by an enemy’s efforts to hide, and it will be necessary for these Ladar systems to have enhanced target detection capability. The design features that show the most potential for providing enhanced “hidden” target detection include: multi-pulse detection logic and the use of polarized multi-spect ...
