  1. 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

  2. Automated Blade Repair System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161117

    High pressure compressor blades are subject to damage due to debris strikes and warping due to the elevated pressures and temperatures within the engine. Blade repair is currently performed manually using grinding to blend out the damaged regions. Reliance on manual grinding operations requires highly skilled operators, fails to reach the optimal blade shape, lacks repeatability, and is extremel ...

  3. Simplified Aero Model Development and Validation Environment

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: AF161042

    Classical approaches to aircrew training are characterized by several shortcomings, including high costs and lack of realism. These issues have motivated the desire to advance the state-of-the-art in virtual aerial refueling training environments. Such an advance has the potential to provide a cost-effective way of introducing a more realistic environment in performing repetition training. A vi ...

  6. A Modular Power Converter for Austere Space Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151084

    ABSTRACT: Spacecraft power management relies upon DC-DC converters to provide multiple voltages from the storage battery. Currently available converters have shortcomings in areas of power density, tolerance to radiation and wide operating temperatures, and excessive development cost. We propose to develop a high density power converter that is compatible with spacecraft operational environments a ...
