  1. Infrared Spectrometer for the Cryovacuum Environment

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF103224

    The 7V and 10V space chambers at Arnold Air Force Base are deep space environment simulators developed to test high performance interceptors and surveillance sensors in deep space conditions (20K background temperature).The chambers operate over the visible to Long Wave Infrared portions of the spectra.The proposed spectrometer will be designed for integration into either space chamber to assist i ...

  2. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking for Coupling with DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...

  3. Mechanically Static High Speed 3-D Optical/Digital Holographic Polarimeter

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...

  4. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

  5. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    To understand how insects and crustaceans sense and process light fields, researchers need a projection system that provides realistic wide field of view (FOV), high-speed imagery from UV to red (320-650nm) that includes polarization control. Insects and crustaceans have vastly different visual acuity and wavelength response from humans. In addition, some can sense polarization. Therefore, commerc ...

  6. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles operate at material strength performance limits and are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating that can result in softening, pitting and burn-through the material and potentially change the vehicle structural profile. These effects degrade aerodynamic performance. The team of CFDRC and UDRI proposed to develop, validate and deliver a comprehensiv ...

  10. Real Time Aeroservoelasticity Simulation Tool for Aircraft Life Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF161069

    Aircraft structure aging and life prediction require accurate prognosis of the dynamic loads, stress spectra and aircraft structure dynamic response leading to fatigue damage. CFDRC proposes to develop ultra-efficient physics-based computational aeroservoelasticity Reduced Order Models (ROM) for real-time prediction and simulation of aircraft dynamic loads, stress spectra and fatigue damage. The p ...
