  1. Thermal Control for Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Satellites

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF103107

    ABSTRACT:This effort will provide both a rapid, satellite thermal modeling tool and deployable radiator system specific to Responsive Space needs. The thermal analysis tool will allow users to make rapid decisions and apply appropriate hardware from a specific RS thermal toolbox. The deployable radiators, being a key component of this toolbox, will provide near isothermal radiator surfaces and a h ...

  2. Laser/Microwave Energy Deposition to Improve Control/Performance of High Speed Vehicles

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF103009

    ABSTRACT:In this effort, we will couple the energy of focused microwave bursts into the air and onto surfaces by first forming a laser plasma. The presence of the laser plasma allows much lower microwave intensities to couple their energy to the laser-pre-ionized surface or air- volume, allowing more efficient energy-transfer and the use of lower-power microwave systems to achieve the desired effe ...

  3. Implementing the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF103017

    ABSTRACT:A new algorithm, the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm (DORA), has been developed. DORA includes a novel implementation of the multi-frame blind deconvolution image restoration concept which recovers high-quality object estimates from sequences of degraded images. DORA removes the effects of atmospheric aberration in images recorded at ground-based telescopes, and is designed to opera ...

  4. Continuous Indoor Vapor Intrusion Monitoring System for Volatile Organic Compounds

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: AF103226

    ABSTRACT:A new differential spectroscopic technique is proposed to detect VOCs for environmentalmonitoring and remdiation at Edwards AFB. This new technique has demonstrated promisewith similar materials and can be deployed in a modestly sized unit to providecontinuous monitoring.BENEFIT:This technology is applicable to various types of monitoring application and is anorthogonal signature that com ...

  5. Wireless Power for Battlefield Airmen Operation

    SBC: ArmorWorks, Inc.            Topic: AF121192

    ABSTRACT:A phase II program is proposed leading to integrate wireless inductive power transfer technology on two prototype tactical vests. The focus of the phase II program would be the development and evaluation of a full-scale inductive power transfer system on a PRC-152 radio by both modifying and interfacing its battery. Because a mating vest/pouch that contains inductive charging circuits so ...

  6. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Bio-Thermal Response

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT:Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including tissue damage or death. Modeling these thermal effects across a whole population of humans is difficult ...

  7. Holographic Video Display Using Novel Guided-wave Scanning System

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131023

    ABSTRACT:Todays analysts need improved 3D visualization tools to assist in critical situations such as deconfliction, line-of-sight analysis, air space and satellite control.Currently available 3D displays cannot provide the level of detail and comfort needed because the displays contain unacceptable visual artifacts, do not provide full parallax, require special headgear, and induce nausea in man ...

  8. Heterojunction GeSn based Photonic Devices

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Si photonic devices based on GeSn materials will be very important for the MWIR. The Air Force recognizes the need for next-generation high-performance photonic materials in the SWIR to MWIR infrared spectrum, due in part to the atmospheric high transmissive windows in this wavelength ranges. Due to materials limitations, silicon based photonic devices have not been utilized in this wa ...

  9. Bulk Non-Equilibrium Materials by Shockwave Consolidation

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF141006

    ABSTRACT: Phase 1 research will validate an approach for material synthesis that combines mechanical alloying with explosive powder consolidation to produce bulk materials with novel properties. The main advantage to the approach is that it can be applied to diverse material systems, including the creation of alloys with otherwise insoluble constituents. An additional advantage is that it has a ...

  10. Residual Stress Determination for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively determine of the cold work process has been applied to a hole, and if the results are within process specif ...
