  1. X-Ray Tomography

    SBC: SCIX3 LLC            Topic: AF183021

    CSLabs develops XDLayer (X-ray DeLayer) as an automated software framework to non-destructively analyze Printed Circuit Boards (PCB's) using lab x-ray microscope systems. XDLayer performs automated sample scanning with optimized 2D and 3D image analysis algorithms to maximize overall system throughput by minimizing the number of viewing angles and exposure times needed to analyze a given PCB, whil ...

  2. Wireless, Intelligent, Non-Invasive, Low-Power Life-Cycle Status Monitoring System for Efficient Armaments Inspection and Sustainment

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF161112

    The Air Force needs an external, self-powered, non-invasive, RFID-like status monitoring device to track the handling and environmental factors experienced by missile armaments during their lifespan. Few monitoring systems have the capability to measure environmental conditions and use that data to determine time spent in storage, on the flightline, on the aircraft, or in the air. The developed sy ...

  3. Wireless Technology for Probes and Accessories for Nondestructive Inspection Testing Instruments

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: AF121214

    Aircraft structure nondestructive testing (NDT) is performed in a field or depot setting depending primarily on the amount of disassembly required to gain access to the inspection area. In order to reach set field and depot inspection intervals, the minimum detectable flaw size (Andi) must be sufficiently small. Legacy NDT methods with Andi's that are too large require out of cycle inspections whi ...

  4. Wireless self-powered covert area monitor (WisperCAM) for radiation detection

    SBC: RayWatch, Inc.            Topic: AF151009

    This project seeks to design and manufacture a prototype WisperCAM detector and to tests its ability to covertly monitor for and detect isotopic radiation. The tasks to accomplish the WisperCAM will build on Phase I. The computer models from Phase I wil

  5. Wide Area Infrared Chemical Imager

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous standoff detection of lethal or narcotic chemical agents and chemical emissions has long been a major concern. While significant advances have recently been accomplished in remote spectral sensing using regged FTIRs with point detectors, efforts towards spatial chemical discrimination and low-cost portable devices have been lacking.Foster-Miller, Inc. (FMI) together with Boeing/Rockwel ...

  6. Weather "Action-Chain" Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to develop a functional prototype of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) application using the technologies identified, knowledge gained, and preliminary design conceived during the Phase I effort. As designed, the Weather ACE application will be a non-intr ...

  7. Wearable Adaptive Reconnaissance Drone Operation Gesture System (WARDOGS)

    SBC: Pison Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF191005

    Pison Technology has developed a wrist-wearable neuromuscular sensing system which enables hands-free, gesture-based control for electronic devices. Our hardware prototype units are ready to be integrated into solutions for communication and computer interaction.A need has been identified to allow warfighters to send/receive messages in the battlefield (multi-domain), in proximity and across dista ...

  8. Weapon Systems Integration Cost Model (WS-ICM)

    SBC: HJ FORD            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (AFRL/MLMS) has initiated a multi-phase project to produce a Weapon System Integrated Cost Model (WS-ICM). To support the requirements presented by rapidly changing weapons acquisition environments, WS_ICM's methodology is based on cost as an independent variable through the total life cycle. The model comprises three modu ...

  9. Wavefront Detection with a Wide Dynamic Range

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and build a tunable, non-contact optical figure-measurement system to measure surface aberrations on a large membrane or segmented mirror. Our approach uses novel electro-optic devices to vary the resolution of the system over four orders of magnitude. Our concept also incorporates algorithms to interface with the mirror-actuator system so that the aberrations in the mirror' ...

  10. Volumetric Diagnostic Imaging of Explosively Driven Fragments

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF161003

    ABSTRACT: The size, shape, and velocity distribution of fragments are critical for the complete characterization of high-explosive fragmentation process. Such information is needed for the qualification of new energetic materials as well as for warhead design. Current methods to characterize such fragmentation processes are time consuming because they are performed manually. Such methods are limit ...
