  1. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  2. A Compact, Low Cost, Handheld Sensor for Non- Destructive Material Case Depth Verification

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N102141

    In this SBIR program, AlphaSense, Inc. teamed with the Center for Non-destructive Evaluations at Iowa State University to develop a compact, low cost handheld sensor for non-destructive material case depth verification. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using an alternating current potential drop (ACPD) sensor for non-destructive measurements of case depth. Phase II will be focusing on ...

  3. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  4. A Platform-Independent Framerwork for Efficient Massively Parallel Execution

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: OSD11T02

    Next-generation high-performance computers (HPCs) are built as massively parallel systems where the parallelism exists at many levels. These systems are a collection of nodes all working together. Each node generally contains more than one processor and each processor contains multiple cores. Managing and efficiently utilizing the different parallelism in such a system is a complex task. Furth ...

  5. Accelerated Blast Modeling for Synergistic Effects during Cooperative Strike

    SBC: ANYAR INC.            Topic: AF121090

    ABSTRACT: When a structure breaks up following a blast event, it allows the blast wave to propagate through a new opening into another airspace; this continuation of the blast wave is called"secondary blast"and may cause damage to elements in the other airspace. Each step in this process is a candidate for some type of acceleration. Current assessment codes incorporate several Fast Running Model ...

  6. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    ABSTRACT: High-performance computing (HPC) programmers and domain experts, such as those in the Air Force's research divisions, develop solvers for a wide variety of application areas such as modeling next generation aircraft and weapons designs and advanced image processing analysis. When developing software for HPC systems, the programmer should not spend the majority of their time optimiz ...

  7. Advanced Cooling Approach for an Aerodynamically Heated Weapon Radome

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF121092

    ABSTRACT: A new generation of supersonic weapons will operate at Mach 3-6. Current radome materials are unable to withstand the heat generated at the temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Mainstream Engineering is proposing an advanced cooling approach that helps to extend the performance of existing radome materials into the Mach 3-6 region. Making use of extensive CFD and thermal cont ...

  8. Advanced Fan Coil Unit with Integral Heat Pump

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N112164

    This proposal addresses the single largest non-propulsion consumer of Navy shipboard power. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system of a combatant ship dissipates over 25% of the ships waste heat. However, a growing percentage (up to 87%) of the waste heat is due to equipment loads that are currently cooled with 80 degrees F air (produced by a chilled water supply at 40-45 degrees F) ...

  9. Advanced Longevity System for the Environmental Protection of Electrochromic Materials

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06019

    Eclipse has a variable transmittance coating to meet the requirement for a single day/night visor for aircrews. The Eclipse Electrochromic Device (EclipseECD) is well suited for light modulation applications. The EclipseECD modulates transmitted light intensity over a broad range (80% to 20% transmission) by changing optical density under an applied electric field (1.5V). This process is reversed ...

  10. Advanced Seal Technology for Helicopter Drive System Application

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: A12076

    Gearbox seal wear and leakage is a major source of maintenance and downtime for rotorcraft. Sentient will use our advanced tribology modeling technology to evaluate coatings and surface texturing processes for carbon face seals and provide a generalized modeling approach that can replace physical testing of seals. These models will be used to evaluate several rotorcraft seal designs proposed by ou ...
