  2. Grid-Group Cm-alpha, Profiling Cultural Factors for Decision Aiding

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF05069

    Human biases and routines, capabilities, and limitations strongly influence overall mission effectiveness; whether during real operations or simulations using models of humans. Many missions and environments challenge human capabilities (e.g., combat stress, waiting, fatigue from long hours or lengthy tour of duty). Knowledge is needed on cultural differences that may affect human effectiveness ...

  4. UAV Hingeless Flight Controls Via Active Flow Control

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: AF05243

    Limitations of conventional hinged aerodynamic platform controls have sparked interest in new “hingeless” systems, where control is effected through use of synthetic jet actuators and pneumatic circulation control. These new systems’ advantages are augmentation of the conventional flight control envelope leading to increased maneuverability and survivability, decreased weight and a decrease ...

  5. Adaptive Control of Synthetic Jet Arrays with Unknown Nonlinearities

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Active flow control using synthetic jet actuators has been the subject of significant research in recent years. Modulated input signals to achieve flow control objectives have been shown to be highly nonlinear and complex. Developing a comprehensive, wind tunnel-validated model of synthetic jet actuators in a single application is technically challenging and expensive. Given the varied and growi ...

  7. Assured QoS and Collaboration in Tactical Networks

    SBC: DATALINE, INC.            Topic: AF05087

    We propose to develop a prototype QoS (Quality of Service) system optimized for the specific requirements of real-time collaboration applications (Chat, VoIP, Video) in tactical networks. This addresses the acute need to manage the battlespace bandwidth deficit problem and to assure prioritized and preemptive information delivery in low-bandwidth, high-latency networks. Our approach is based on in ...

  8. Dynamic Module Server for Routing-Driven FPGA Defragmentation

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF05149

    Luna Innovations proposes to develop a set of Dynamic Module Servers (DMS) that manage dynamically reconfigurable modules to prevent fragmentation in runtime-reconfiguring FPGA applications. The DMS will be capable of maximizing the available contiguous FPGA resources by efficiently floorplanning the modules currently running on the FPGA. While many FPGA defragmentation approaches model the FPGA ...

  9. Ultrahydrophobic Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF05T014

    Due to the staggering costs stemming from corrosion of metal structures, there is a tremendous need to develop multifunctional coatings that can out perform traditional coatings. This research program will develop robust, inexpensive ultrahydrophobic coatings that repel water and corrosion causing materials as a first line of defense for metal. Various surface modification approaches have report ...
