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

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF18BT001

    Trends in human-machine teaming and multi-domain operations will only increase the complexity of the tasks facing operators. This complexity comes with design risks: will operators be capable of performing the required tasks within acceptable levels of workload, stress, etc. Often, problems are not discovered until human testing is conducted, late in the process. At that point, design flaws may be ...

  9. Clearance of Aircraft Stores Carriage under Uncertainty

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT008

    The main objective of this STTR effort is three-fold. First, to develop and demonstrate in Phase I a Bayesian methodology exploiting flight test data in order to identify critical store carriage tests and clear non-critical store carriage configurations by updated analysis. Second, to extend in Phase II the scope of this methodology to viscous flows with analysis enriched using analytical sensitiv ...

  10. Lasers Based on Gas Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            Topic: AF18BT015

    Current continuous wave (CW) and pulse mid-wave infrared (MWIR) lasers have design and performance limitations that constrain their usability in some critical Air Force applications. There is an important need to create a new class of MWIR laser sources with less drawbacks and higher pulse energies and CW powers. The proposed work will demonstrate the technical feasibility of an innovative MWIR la ...
