  1. Further Experimental Validation of a Fluid-Structure-Material Interaction (FSMI) Modeling and Simulation Toolset

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    ATA Engineering, Inc. (ATA), partnered with a nonprofit research institution, CUBRC, Inc., (CUBRC), proposes a Phase II STTR project to further develop and continue validating a novel multiphysics simulation technology. The project team will implement the technology in a fluid-structure-material interaction (FSMI) software toolset that incorporates mutual interactions between aerodynamics and stru ...

  2. AgileBeam Reconfigurable Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems. Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming. The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers ...

  3. Lasers Based on Gas or Liquid Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT015

    We propose a compact, monolithic, power scalable, hollow core fiber-gas laser emitting in the atmospheric transmission region in the mid-IR, titled "mid-IR ATLAS." The proposed optically pumped fiber-gas laser system is efficient, has a small footprint as well broad spectral coverage in the mid-IR. Due to the unique approach employed, the proposed technology allows generation of mid-IR output with ...

  4. Rapid Nondestructive Inspection of Traditionally Uninspectable Adhesively-Filled Composite Joints

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: AF18BT016

    To a large extent, Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) composites have become the material of choice in modern aircraft design, due to their high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion immunity and fatigue properties. Many primary structure components (e.g. bulkheads, stabilizers, wing boxes), where an aluminum skin was previously joined to a metallic airframe by fasteners, adhesives or welding, h ...

  5. A Software Toolkit for Predicting the Neural Signatures of Cognitive States

    SBC: Sonalysts, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT001

    The United States Air Force (USAF) has a long history of using human performance models to increase the effectiveness of training, and predict the impact of physical factors (like fatigue) and environmental factors (like time pressures and information uncertainty). Within Phase I, Sonalysts and Miami University worked to improve the quality of these models through the development of the EEG Modeli ...

  6. ISL-VT LEN ELECTRONICALLY DIMMABLE EYE PROTECTION DEVICES (EDEPD)

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: AF18BT003

    This project addresses the U.S. Air Force needs for single-piece, electronically dimmable eye protection device (EDEPD). Toward demonstrating the proof-of-principle, InnoSense LLC (ISL) in Phase I developed and evaluated individual layer components and their stacked structures. ISL also demonstrated the fabrication processes for individual-layer components, stacked structures and the scale-up pote ...

  7. Military Supersonic Cargo and Troop Transport Concept: How Exosonic's Commercial Supersonic Airliner can be Transitioned to a Military Supersonic Transport Vehicle

    SBC: Exosonic, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Exosonic develops supersonic commercial jets for airlines and proposes a USAF version. This aircraft flies at Mach 1.8 over 5000 nmi and carries 64-92 troops or 6 troops and 6 463L master pallets.

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

    SBC: Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT010

    A key goal stated in the United States Air Force Science and Technology Strategy for 2030 and Beyond is to “Increase the speed of battlespace understanding and decision-making to act faster than any adversary.” In this project, ISL and Ohio University (ISL-OU) will build on the success of Phase I and deliver a new game-changing capability for reliably performing complex radio frequency, multi- ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Multifunctional Integrated Sensing Cargo Pocket UAS

    SBC: ENDECTRA, LLC            Topic: AF19AT016

    Palm-sized unmanned aerial systems (nano UAS) are emerging as a new tool for warfighters, first responders, and private industry. However, their small mass, fragility, and limited batteries still necessitate the use of emerging, low mass/power technologies to meet the full range of potential missions, including new autonomous flight control and collision avoidance strategies, structural improvemen ...
