  1. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  2. A Reconfigurable Machining Center for Depot Productivity Enhancement

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161019

    Current depot-level manufacturing systems are not responsive to changing requirements and flexible specifications. The serial arrangement of individual work cells results in a lengthy timeline to complete the critically-needed part; thus, critical assets

  3. Open Standard for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS)

    SBC: THIRD DIMENSION TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF16AT07

    The Air Force has identified a need for a display agnostic common streaming model for 3D data. Third Dimension Technologies (TDT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have formed a consortium to define a 3D streaming model based on open standards for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS). Two factors are driving this need. The first is the dramatic increase in the collection, storage and trans ...

  4. Optical System for High-Speed 3D Velocimetry

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161071

    Unsteady processes, such as vortex shedding and local extinction, play a key role in augmentor stability.These processes occur on fast timescales, and can involve complex, three-dimensional (3D) structures.To fully elucidate unsteady processes, such as flame ignition and blowout, fast diagnostics that can provide information over a 3D volume are needed.In this research program, we are developing a ...

  5. S-RAM Energy Recovery Compressor for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems (TMSs)

    SBC: S-Ram Dynamics, LLC            Topic: AF171057

    S-RAM Dynamics (S-RAM) proposes to design, fabricate, test, and commercialize a high-performance axial piston transcritical CO2 energy recovery compressor (ERC) to support next-generation aircraft thermal management systems for the U.S. Air Force and commercial applications. The S-RAM ERC will be developed and commercialized with the support of the Rolls-Royce Thermal Management System team and Pu ...

  7. LWIR Fiber Bundle for Thermal Imaging in Gas Turbine Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF17AT016

    Improved temperature measurements of thermal barrier coating (TBC) components are needed for gas turbine research and development.Imaging pyrometry systems are preferred because they are non-contact and can measure the complex spatial temperature distribution on components.Measurement in the long-wave infrared (LWIR) band is required for accurate temperature measurements of modern TBCs.Fiber coupl ...

  9. Tools for Cross-Platform Software Development and Performance Projection

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF161088

    Developers of modern software, particularly those targeting mobile or embedded platforms, are presented with a wide variety of hardware choices. Solutions can be built on microprocessors (e.g. x86, ARM, or Power architecture), GPUs (e.g. NVIDIAs Tegra), DSPs, FPGAs, or some combination of these technologies. Not only does this place a significant burden on programmers in understanding the intricac ...
