  1. Real-Time Sensor Data Processing and Compression Performed On-board Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: AF131132

    ABSTRACT: The K-128 co-processor leverages insights from neuroscience to achieve superior performance. Unlike previous efforts along those lines, our approach is to create a software programmable co-processor that runs existing applications. One of the most salient characteristics of such a co-processor is its power efficiency: not just a few percent more efficient than a traditional processor, b ...

  3. Modular Flexible Weapons Integration

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF141076

    CRAFT Tech proposes the development of an innovative design optimization tool called"AeroRCS"which will simultaneously solve for both aerodynamic performance as well as electromagnetic reflectivity (Radar Cross Section). When operated in an automated environment, AeroRCS will intelligently"morph"and steer the shape to converge on an optimal solutions. AeroRCS will be demonstrated by developing ...

  4. Radiation Model Development for Combustion Systems

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    Evolving demand for robust and accurate multi-physics modeling tools for high performance combustion devices is being driven by increasingly complex design, analysis, and simulation requirements, but existing models and their underlying assumptions need to be rigorously examined in light of their intended Air Force propulsion system applications. The production use of coupled multi-physics module ...

  5. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  6. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  7. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  8. Joint Tactical Air Control Training with Intelligent CGFs (JTACTICs): Improved Computerized Ground Forces (CGF) for Close Air Support Training

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141020

    ABSTRACT: One of the key lessons learned from operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom is that Close Air Support (CAS) is assuming an increasingly important role for US military planners and field commanders. Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) play a critical role across all Services in bringing air superiority to bear in engaging targets of opportunity in close proximity to friendly f ...
