  1. A Formal Method for Verification and Validation of Neural Network High Assurance Systems

    SBC: PROLOGIC, INC.            Topic: T101

    Our proposed innovation is to develop neural network (NN) rule extraction technology to a level where it can be incorporated into a software tool, we are calling NNRules, which captures a trained neural network?s decision logic and uses it as a basis for verification and validation (V&V) of the neural network. This formalism has never been attempted. The significance of the NNRules innovation is t ...

  2. Advanced High Mass Fraction Tactical Rocket Motor Case

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The maturation of Titanium Matrix Composite into an affordable material system with production experience on the F-16 opens up a wide series of opportunities for improved propulsion performance. This SBIR builds on the baseline TMC demonstrations being conducted by FMW and ATK and extends them to advanced systems. The use of configured residual stress states and enhanced Titanium matrix systems ...

  3. Advanced Rocket Propulsion Technologies

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The future propulsion requirements of the USAF will require substantial performance improvements, especially stage mass fraction as defined by the Phase III IHPRPT goals. The development and transition to production of titanium matrix composites (TMC) offer the potential of significant mass fraction gains for liquid engines. This program proposes the substitution of TMC into the impeller, which ...

  4. Aspect-Oriented Secure Fuselet Runtime Environment

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA04044

    We propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and monitoring. We will compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with distributed object technologies in a ...

  5. Automated Computational Fluid Dynamics Design With Shape Optimization

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: A405

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used as an analysis tool to help the designer gain greater understanding of the fluid flow phenomena involved in the components being designed. The next step in the design process is to modify the design to improve the componentys performance, typically performed manually by the designer in a trial and error fashion. The innovations proposed herein will provid ...

  6. Carbon Foam Composite Tooling

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA03049

    Touchstone Research Laboratory has developed a novel material, CFOAMr. The primary enabling carbon foam characteristic is that the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) values are comparable to carbon fiber polymer matrix systems in manufacturing advanced composites. Other advantages of carbon foam-based tools are low mass, reduced energy, easy modifications, unmatched repair capabilities, and r ...

  7. Carbon Foam Innovative Processing

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA02021b

    Touchstone Research Laboratory is currently producing carbon foam in its pilot production facility. In the Phase I feasibility study, Touchstone identified opportunities to reduce the production cycle by combining manufacturing processes. The results indicated that a batch foaming process was optimum and the heat treatment step should be converted to a continuous process. This would lead to a s ...

  8. CFD Design Tool for Fuel Injectors in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Flow Parametrics, LLC            Topic: AF04293

    The objectives of the proposed effort are to demonstrate the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as a design tool for reducing engine development time and cost, to reduce fuel nozzle-combustor test requirements, and to demonstrate the capability of CFD to accelerate the incorporation of promising, actively controlled fuel nozzles and combustors into aircraft engines. These overall objectives ...

  9. CFOAMr Enclosures for Electronic Warfare (EW) Antenna Systems

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N04062

    The Navy has a need for an innovative, cost effective replacement of Electronic Warfare (EW) system antenna enclosures to meet an extended service life and source newly constructed systems. These enclosures serve to protect detection electronics from severe marine environments. The enclosures are presently constructed of a mix of aluminum, fiberglass and stainless steel sealed with rubber gaskets. ...

  10. Chemical Nano-Imprint Lithography

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041030

    The rapid expansion in the electronics industry has given rise to what has become known as Moore's law. At its core, lies advances in lithography that enable the miniaturization of features patterned on semiconductor substrates. As the minimum feature patterned on modern integrated circuits approaches 100nm, projection photolithography is put under enormous pressure to satisfy the demands of indus ...
