  1. 3D Measurement for Aircraft Maintenance and Part Remanufacture

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF05267

    Those responsible for maintaining the operational status of the aircraft of the United States Air Force face many difficult challenges in completing their mission. With an ever aging, and yet, ever more valuable inventory of older aircraft, the maintenance depots assigned their upkeep and readiness continually work to maximize flight time and minimize costs. As a result, many are looking to tech ...

  2. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  4. A Comprehensive Modeling Tool for Cold Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05130

    Under AFRL Contract FA8650-05-M-5214 Phase I, CFDRC has developed and demonstrated the foundation of a comprehensive code for modeling the Cold Hearth Melting (CHM) processing of Titanium alloys. The code includes effects that accurately predict the transient temperature distribution, flow patterns, skull shape, species evaporation, and particle fates in the hearth region for a given set of dynam ...

  5. A Coupled Transport and Fate Model for Health and Environmental Effects

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05316

    We propose to develop a Health and Environmental Risks Assessment Capability (HERAC) that will allow Air Force personnel and related contractors to develop actionable, scientifically based, health and environmental risks assessments of maintenance tasks upon aircraft and other weapons. Presently, no capability exists to effectively model and simulate the microscale (from 2 to 50 feet) transport an ...

  6. A Fuzzy Integrated Navigation System (FINS)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06053

    A Fuzzy Integrated Navigation System (FINS) is proposed consisting of a GPS, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Magnetic Sensing Unit (MSU). In addition to the traditional Inertial Navigation System composed of a tightly coupled GPS-IMU, a tightly coupled MSU-IMU is added along with Fuzzy Logic Adaptive Signal Processing (FLASP™) to process and blend all information. This creates a system whic ...

  7. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  8. A New Method for Automation and Optimization of the Curve Fit Kinetics Generating Process

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05194

    Run-time and convergence requirements limit practical Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) combustion simulations to simplified chemistry, such as multi-step global kinetic mechanisms. Current methods available for generating reduced global mechanisms are tedious, and the resultant mechanisms often lack accuracy. What is needed, and proposed for development in this SBIR effort, is a software packa ...

  9. A Nonlinear Reduced Order Method with Overset Adaptive Cartesian/Unstructured Grid for Moving Body Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08118

    An innovative hybrid nonlinear reduced order method (ROM) for deforming unstructured mesh and overset Cartesian grid for moving body problems is proposed. Utilizing the properties of a maximum 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) of a moving body, the proposed method computes the grid deformation using nonlinear large deformation theory to preserve the original grid quality under each DOF, so that no extra ...

  10. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    The objective of this effort is to apply a systems-biology-centered methodology for the identification of subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity, with the goal of developing a genetic profile to identify individuals predisposed to mefloquine neurotoxicity. The core hypothesis is that elucidating subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity requires the combination of cellular lev ...
