  1. Intelligent Fuel Transport Monitor

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: AF191047

    The problem of measuring the flow of fuel in the testing of military aircraft has, so far, been addressed with the use of conventional inline flowmeters, which require lengthy installation/removal times and substantial modification of the fuel lines to allow sensor insertion.Commercial non-invasive flowmeters do not possess the accuracy and robustness required by the U.S. Air Force in its flight t ...

  2. Integration of Onboard Distributed Flow Sensing Using AF Intellectual Property US9658087B1

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF183008

    Advances over the last decade in sensors, miniature and flexible electronics, wireless protocols, and related technologies now make it feasible to sensecontinuously and accurately - environmental and operational parameters over the entire surface of an aircraft using a wide network of sensors. A specific example, and the subject of this proposal, is the AFRL-developed Artificial Hair Sensors (AHS) ...

  3. Rotating Detonation Engine for Rocket Propulsion

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF182063

    We propose here a series of advancements leading to the design of robust and efficient rotating detonation engines (RDE) for rocket propulsion. We will begin with a comparative study of existing test data and perform detailed computational simulations of RDE design variants, focusing on improvements in performance - primarily mixing, followed by combustion efficiency, pressure drop, nozzle geometr ...

  4. Non-Destructive Testing for Landing Gear Applications


    Landing gear that is manufactured or overhauled are routinely inspected for anomalies that occur during the manufacturing and overhaul and damage that may have occurred in service prior to overhaul. These anomalies manifest themselves in numerous ways including cracks, poor coating adhesion, substrate surface non-uniformity from grit blast/peening, subsurface corrosion, heat damage (grinding burns ...

  5. Comb-based Heterodyne and Synchronization Module (CHaSM)

    SBC: Vector Atomic Inc            Topic: AF182067

    Vector Atomic will design a time transfer module capable of global-scale synchronization of assets to better than 10 fs. The Comb-based Heterodyne and Synchronization Module (CHaSM) uses an established two-way optical time transfer scheme that is insensitive to signal dropouts and turbulence and compensates for relative motion between moving platforms.

  8. High Precision Remote Cardiopulmonary Monitoring through combined iPPG and Low Power Radar

    SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC            Topic: AF19AT003

    Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...

  9. Embedded Device Isolation for Trusted High-Assurance (EDITH)

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: AF19AT013

    Current techniques for supporting Multi-Level Security (MLS) on embedded devices rely on maintaining secure connections back to centralized servers or dedicated computers for managing authentication and access controls.To provide the embedded devices with the capability to handle content of differing security levels directly on device, the operating system (OS) must properly and securely isolate u ...

  10. Collaboration and Interoperability for Distributed Mission Analysis

    SBC: Real-time Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF191060

    RTI is proposing to develop a comprehensive connectivity framework that will optimize communication, ease development and security, allow for incremental improvements, prioritize data, and adapt to changing topology in tactical Disadvantaged, Intermittent, and Low-bandwidth (DIL) environments. It will significantly reduce propagation of low value and control data across congested links and reduce ...
