  1. Visual Ontological Language for Technical Standards (VOLTS)

    SBC: Aztera, LLC            Topic: 9010273R

    Current research shows that failures in the standardization process are often the result of a failure of the participants to communicate or organize. To this effect, NIST has developed a tool, NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS), with an environment for visualizing, browsing, and querying standards. Aztera will create a Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) framewo ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Thick Composite Crack Analysis

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N132101

    Advanced thick composites are increasingly used in components for defense applications as well as commercial structures. The proposed project will lead to the development and commercialization of a validated predictive capability based on the Peridynamic (PD) theory to enhance the performance of thick composite components under complex loading conditions while exposed to harsh environments. The pr ...

  7. Improved TPS for Analog and Mixed-Signal Bad-Actor SRUs

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093207

    ABSTRACT: The proposed program addresses the cost effectiveness of maintenance operations for mission-critical electronic warfare circuit card assemblies (CCAs), by reducing no fault found (NFF) codes and accelerating accurate diagnosis of root causes in support of repairs of analog, digital, radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal CCAs. Benefits of the proposed work include a projected 50% reducti ...

  8. Improved Test Program Sets for Bad-Actor Circuit Card Assemblies in VDATS

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093208

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group, Inc. will develop an innovative solution to isolate troublesome no-fault-found (NFF) occurrences in the maintenance depot. We will develop advanced technology to integrate into improved Test Program Sets (TPSs) used to test complex circuit card assemblies (CCAs) of line-replaceable units (LRUs) in electronic warfare (EW) systems. The work will result in a 60% reduction ...

  9. Ultra Sharp Fiber Architectures for Ceramic Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N142119

    Hypersonic vehicles are strategic weapon systems in the Navy arena. Hypersonic vehicles require erosion-free sharp leading edges with a 0.04 inch radius which must exhibit 30 minute operation at 4500F (2482C). It has not been demonstrated to 3D weave fibers into a sharp leading edge architecture of 0.04 inch radius, nor prevent erosion of a leading edge at hypersonic flight conditions for 30 minut ...

  10. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...
