  1. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  2. Data Science Techniques for Various Mission Planning Processes and Performance Validation

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...

  3. Virtual Reality for Multi-INT Deep Learning (VR-MDL)

    SBC: Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT010

    Recent advances and successes of deep learning neural networks (DLNN) techniques and architectures have been well publicized over the last several years. Voluminous, high-quality and annotated training data, or trial and error in a realistic environment, is required to achieve the promised performance potential of DLNNs. Unfortunately for DoD and/or Intelligence Community (IC) applications of mult ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...

  8. Eliminating Ransomware Attacks with Program Access Control (PAC)

    SBC: MARC PEREZ            Topic: AF19BT001

    In the wake of ransomware reaching epidemic proportions and the current anti-ransomware products’ inability to stop its march, there is a great deal of urgency in creating effective countermeasures. Our proposal is to design and subsequently develop a technology called Program Access Control (PAC), that can positively protect data on both consumer and enterprise systems. If successfully dep ...

  9. Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)-Enabled Chip-Scale Atomic Devices (CSAD) for Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19BT001

    Sensors based on chip-scale atomic devices (CSADs) offer portability, manufacturability, and high performance for precision navigation and timing (PNT) missions. Key systems for PNT including atom interferometric gyroscopes (AIG) and atomic clocks. Ongoing advances and innovations in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are directly relevant to CSADs. Different material bases have been used in PICs ...

  10. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Exosonic, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Exosonic is developing a quiet Mach 1.8, 4500 nmi range supersonic civil aircraft that uses aerodynamic shaping techniques to mute its sonic boom. Exosonic is teamed up with Stanford University Prof. Juan Alonso's Aerospace Design Lab to apply the lab's low boom shape optimization tools to design this aircraft to meet future low-boom regulatory standards. The aircraft's primary customers are comme ...
