  1. Software to calculate occupant forces in real world crashes

    SBC: Dynamic Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for economical, high capacity softwre to aid medical and engineering researchers to more easily and consistently calculate forces acting on vehicle occupants during real-world crashes. One example of such research is NHTSA's Crash Injury research and Engineering Network (CIREN), which in adition to collecting injury and vehicle information, has increasing access to data from Event D ...

  3. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: ACUMEN CONSULTING            Topic: AF04165

    Projecting high radiance, broadband scenes in the spectral range from 0.2-14 mm is desired to simulate operating environmental scenarios for testing ultraviolet , visible and infrared sensors in a hardware-in-the-loop environment. The ideal solution will provide high radiance levels over the entire spectral range along with the capability for both broad and narrowband emission, as is appropriate ...

  4. High Power Pulsed and CW VCSEL Arrays for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF04156

    Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) have demonstrated themselves as a commercially viable technology. Recent technology developments have lead to a new class of commercial VCSELs designed for high power operation. Phase I feasibility testing has verified that these devices are favorable candidates for high power military applications. In this Project, Aerius Photonics will develop ...

  5. DC-DC Converter for Regenerative Fuel Cell / Battery Hybrid Systems

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: AF04194

    Satellite platforms, high altitude long endurance (HALE) aircraft, and remote terrestrial telecommunications stations require highly reliable energy production and storage systems to maximize payload power and performance. The regenerative fuel cell (RFC) system, in hybrid configuration with a battery pack or ultracapacitor bank, can provide a 25:1 peak to base load power delivery ratio. However, ...

  6. CMC Material Optimization for Aircraft Brake Application

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: AF04130

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are the state-of-the-art friction material for aircraft brakes. Generally speaking, C-C brake offers low wear and provides excellent frictional performance at high energy conditions such as rejected take off (RTO). However, C-C begins to oxidize at 800 F. C-C brake also yields lower frictional coefficient and tends to vary widely under different environment and landi ...

  7. Self-Activate Corrosion Inhibitor

    SBC: AMERICAN METAL PROCESSING, INC.            Topic: AF04266

    The current inventory of Department of Defense shelters and ancillary equipment relies on metallic structures as well as aluminum/foam and beam panels that are extremely susceptible to corrosion. The primary reason for field and depot level repairs of military equipment is corrosion. Metallic weapon systems and their components require extensive corrosion protection to extend service life and pr ...

  8. Identifying cultural factors affecting the use of non-lethal weapons

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04072

    This project will produce a new assessment and decision-support tool that will assist US military leaders in their decisions regarding the development and use of non-lethal weapons. This tool will provide commanders with an ability to anticipate psychological and behavioral reactions to the use of a variety of non-lethal weapons influenced by a variety of cultural and situational factors. No simil ...

  9. Innovative Resin for Non-Autoclave Resin Film Infusion Composites Repair


    Composite parts on aircraft can be field repaired if the damage is small, using only vacuum and heat blankets or portable ovens. As alternative to using wet laminating resins and prepreg systems for repair, resin film infusion (RFI) is cost effective and can alleviate some problems with current repair methods. In Phase I, RFI resin films were developed that have a shelf-life greater than one yea ...

  10. Controlling Stability and Load Limits of Aerodynamically Induced Forces on Very Large Asymmetric Fairing Designs

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF04038

    The proposed program addresses the development of a very large asymmetric fairing that will allow considerably larger payloads to be launched than is currently possible with cylindrical fairings. This fairing would be usable on existing launch vehicles without extensive modifications of those launch vehicles and would minimize in-flight instability conditions, reduce lateral force induced peak str ...
