  1. Arc jet Test-Article Surface Recession Rate Monitor

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF141228

    ABSTRACT:Quantitative ablation recession rate measurements of heat shield surfaces are essential for evaluating the performance of heat shield materials. Currently, these measurements are limited to two-dimensional images that focus on the nose tip regression rate. For wedge testing, recession rate is determined by comparing pre- and post-test measurements, and therefore, recession rate as a funct ...

  2. Long-Duration, Eye-in-the-Sky Monitoring for Airfield Threat Detection

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF06204

    In today’s Urban-Warfare Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) environment, current sensor platforms have a limited operational capability due to power consumption and recharge times. Many times these sensor packages are found to be unsuitable for many battlefield environments due strictly to their endurance limitations. Much of the research done to date has ...

  3. Missile Threat Warning Discrimination

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF03219

    The ability to countermeasure man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) missiles is one of the most pressing problems that military and commercial aircraft face today. Currently available countermeasure systems are costly, complex and not operationally acceptable. Current MWS equipment cannot meet all of the requirements such as long-range detection, high angular resolution, low false alarm rat ...

  4. Deployable Closed-Loop Anesthesia System

    SBC: Neurowave Systems Inc.            Topic: OSD10H05

    The AutoTIVA system, to be developed under this program, comes as an answer to the Army requirement for a "deployable automated analgesia and anesthesia system".The AutoTIVA device concept is akin to that of an autopilot for anesthesia and sedation, where the administration of both intravenous analgesics and hypnotics are adjusted continuously in real-time, to drive and maintain patients in a pre- ...

  5. Collaborative Virtual Combat Simulation Technology For System of Systems Research

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF05210

    Current/next generation aircraft will utilize capabilities-based system of systems (SoS) concepts to enhance combat operations. SoS concepts involve the seamless connectivity of external (to a combat aircraft) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) assets, and internal situational awareness and threat warning systems in joint battlespace ...

  6. Develop a Tool to Measure Bonded Joint Strength for Primary Load Bearing Aircraft Structures

    SBC: LSP Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05125

    To reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency, composites are being adhesively bonded into integral structural elements of aircraft at an accelerating rate. Once a bonded structure is assembled, there is no conventional NDI method available to assure that bond strength is adequate for service. The presence of weak regions in bonds can lead to disastrous failure of the structure under flight loads ...

  7. Low-Cost Miniature Control Actuation System for Gun-Fired Munitions

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: A06050

    Orbital Research Inc. proposes to design and develop an innovative, low-cost Miniature Control Actuator System (MCAS) for active aerodynamic control of Army's next-generation smart munitions. The MCAS will employ miniature flow control actuators and advanced control strategies to provide in-flight course-correction capability for Army’s line-of-sight (LOS) and beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) munitio ...

  8. Innovative Information System Technologies: Real-Time Monitoring and Correlation of Multiple Streams of Information from Heterogeneous Sources

    SBC: ITCN, Inc.            Topic: AF03094

    We are proposing an approach for the "information gathering devices" used in all life cycle phases of C4ISR systems/subsystems (Embedded Systems). These systems produce multiple streams of data in various formats from dissimilar sources while they operate. The proposed approach will support the engineering team that develops these systems as well as the operators and maintainers in the field. This ...

  9. Long-Duration, Eye-in-the-Sky Monitoring for Airfield Threat Detection

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF06204

    In today’s Urban-Warfare C2ISR environment, all UAS platforms have an operationally-limited sensor capability with power consumption and recharge times that are a major problem making them unsuitable for many battlefield environments. Much of the research done to date has concentrated on minimizing the size of the UAS to minimize the battery power required to complete a mission. There is now a ...

  10. Data Fusion of Eddy Current, Ultrasonic, and Radiographic Data

    SBC: Etegent Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF06079

    Nondestructive Evaluation and Inspection (NDE/I) methods, procedures, and enabling technologies generally provide means to nondestructively scan, image, sense, or otherwise evaluate characteristics of, or detect minute flaws/defects in, materials and/or component parts. These capabilities have become essential to help assure structural and functional integrity, safety, and cost effective sustainm ...
