  2. Damage Tolerance Analysis of Grinding Burn Cracks in High Strength Steels

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF172001

    Landing gear are often made from high strength steels, such as 300M , which are known to have excellent damage resistance when properly manufactured and maintained but to have lesser damage tolerance when compromised. For example, the grinding process, when done improperly, can heat the steel excessively and cause undesirable microstructural transformations, called grinding burns, which often cont ...

  3. Fast High Resolution, High Contrast Microfocus X-Ray Computed Tomography Reconstruction Algorithms for ICBM Components

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF171055

    Microfocus conebeam computed tomography is used by the Air Force to inspect small components of aerospace systems.Artifacts and distortion are caused by an incomplete complement of information needed for a mathematically accurate inverse, Compton scatter due to lack of beam collimation and other factors.The proposed solution will address the following limitations: (1) cone beam parallax artifact, ...

  4. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF182001

    Accurate and timely weather information for situational awareness is critical to the success of Air Force missions.To date, space-borne sensors for weather forecasting primarily include visible, infrared, and microwave instruments.While visible and infrared sensors have reached a high level of maturity and performance, those operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum continu ...

  5. Realtime Multiframe Blind Deconvolution (MFBD) for Imaging through Turbulence

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF171025

    Ground-based space telescopes contend with atmospheric turbulence that distorts imagery. Despite adaptive optics (AO) mitigating these effects, deconvolution is needed because of residual distortions exist and not all telescopes have AO.The aim of this project is to develop blind deconvolution that operates in real time (between 2 and 30 frames/sec.).The objectives of Phase II are: (a), develop, b ...

  6. Direct Measurement of Targeting Coordinates from Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) EO/IR Gimbal Systems

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171120

    Trillium proposes both hardware and software developments in the Phase II effort to further refine geolocation improvements found in Phase I and design a robust gimbal product that has future expandability. Trillium prototyped and flight tested a number of software algorithms in Phase 1 that can be extrapolated to show CAT-1 geolocation accuracy from a range of 2000ft. However, these were accompli ...

  7. AFFF Disposal

    SBC: Liquid Carbonic L.L.C.            Topic: AF17BT001

    The Air Force and other government and private entities must safely dispose of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Waste (AFFF).The waste is problematic due to a high fluorine content.The thermal decomposition of AFFF by supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) was accomplished in a continuous flow reactor during Phase I demonstrating >99% AFFF conversion efficiency.Phase II will build on the bench-scale work b ...

  8. InGaAs Focal-plane Arrays for Coherent Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171129

    Voxtel proposes to develop, characterize, and demonstrate a coherent-ladar optimized readout integrated circuit (ROIC) consisting of 40-micron pixel elements, including circuits designed for snapshot-integration operation as short as 250 ns, formatted in a 32 x 32 array capable of readout speeds of 1 M frames per second. In Phase I, the coherent ladar ROIC architecture was developed and specificat ...

  9. Adversarial Detection, Inference & Defensive Response (ADIDRUS)

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Insider threat poses one of the most problematic cyber challenges facing the warfighter today. This threat to Air Force assets is particularly insidiousas trusted individuals have easy access to sensitive and classified information. Galois, Inc. has developed a multi-layered attack inference engine called ADIDRUS, originally designed to help UAVs fight through cyber attacks. ADIDRUS continuously m ...

  10. NIIRS 9 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) 5-Inch Gimbal

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171119

    Phase I focused on the selection of a camera and associated optics that would deliver the required imagery along with a concept of operation (CONOP) for the system. Though Phase I isnt complete, preliminary results strongly support the use of a small, zoomable full motion video (FMV) camera for target acquisition paired with an 18MP camera and custom 250mm catadioptric lens to capture still images ...
