  1. Identification and Resolution of Events

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF083055

    ABSTRACT:The Air Force has a need to maintain strong intelligence capability in semi-permissive and anti-access area denial (A2/AD) scenarios where full-motion video (FMV)-based surveillance assets are rare or unavailable. In such environments, priority is given to leveraging any and all other sources of intelligence available, which may include ?open sources? of data available on the public Web, ...

  2. Manufacturing Process Maturation for Propulsion Technology: Structural Insulators

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA08018

    ABSTRACT:The Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) represents the nations largest aerospace ground test facilities and includes several wind tunnels that are unlike any other in the world.AEDC routinely provides aerodynamic and aerothermodynamic ground testing to evaluate aerodynamic and propulsion system performance under hypersonic conditions.Its facilities are used to test the flight an ...

  3. Bearing Analytical Software Development and Validation

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF131163

    ABSTRACT: This proposal describes an analytical approach to model rolling element bearings for gas turbines and similar drive systems. Detailed approaches for modeling bearing material fatigue life, bearing heat generation, and tribology are presented. The resulting analytical bearing code will enable gas turbine engineers and designers to better assess engine lubrication system thermal loads a ...

  4. Short Duration, High Altitude, Mixed Continuum/Non-Continuum Flowfield

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A13005

    The increasing sophistication of missile defense technologies has resulted in the equally increasing sophistication of defense mitigating technologies. Whereas first generation systems concentrated on early detection, early boost phase, and/or terminal phase intercepts (i.e. low-altitudes), the current paradigm is to create systems that address all areas of the threat trajectory, increasingly in t ...

  5. Aerostat Communications Relay from Unmanned Surface Vehicle

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: N131039

    The CommLift Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an alternate and novel approach to providing long range, over-the-horizon, communications for surface vessels; it uses a tethered electric UAV to carry a radio payload to suitable altitude, rather than an aerostat. The tether provides power from an unmanned surface vessel (USV) to the UAV and also bi-directional com ...

  6. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...

  7. Optimally Integrate Automated Ship and Small Craft Classification Functions with the Maritime Tactical Picture Tools

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N111030

    Surface vessel detection and classification from airborne platforms relies heavily on radar at operationally useful stand off ranges. Upon detection the radar search waveform may be used to accrue additional information about the surface contact for classification but confidence is likely to be insufficient. Improved classification confidence can be gained by follow-on contact interrogation with h ...

  8. Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS)

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N101042

    The U.S. Navy requires a new Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS) sensor to facilitate the gathering of environmental data from Navy ASW platforms. The newly developed EWARS sensor will deployable in shallow and deep environments, and be capable of operating over a broad spectrum of frequencies. EWARS will also provide calibration accuracy, digital uplink format/precision, a ...

  9. Modular Sonar Identification System (MoSIS)

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: N132119

    Systems, LLC proposes to develop a hardware and software capabilities for Pre-Processing Logic (SPP) and Main Processor (SMP) for the sonar signal processing. Our approach includes a broad range of power saving measures in software and hardware to greatly improve power/performance ratio over the current baseline system. Our approach was validated in Phase I by demonstrating a potential 30x gain in ...

  10. Low Noise Torpedo Power Supply

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: N131032

    QorTek and Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors (LM MS2) are together proposing a new low noise integrated converter architecture that would significantly improve both low frequency noise rejection and the high frequency switching noise content and still fit within the confines of the design envelope. As the prime contractor for the MK48 CBASS torpedoMS2 is uniquely positioned to work with ...
