  1. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Such low ambient temperatures influence the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  2. Binaural Capture and Synthesis of Ambient Soundscapes

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF081015

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) will develop a reliable, validated, and fully documented system for digitally recording ambient soundscapes and resynthesize the desired soundscape for binaural presentation to human listeners via headphones. The system will take advantage of the established acoustical signal processing technology of AAC and the state-of-the-art psychoacoustics research and audio r ...

  3. Biologically Based Non-Language Speech Sound Detection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF071079

    This proposal addresses the application of new acoustic processing technologies to automatically identify and eliminate non-language speech sounds as a pre-processing stage to improve audio processing. Non-language speech sounds (coughing, breathing, ‘ah,’ ‘uhmm’) make up a large part of natural human language use, but contemporary speech recognition data preparation relies on hand-labelin ...

  4. Ultra-Dense Three-Dimensional Electronics for Space

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF073099

    R3Logic, Inc., in collaboration with Tezzaron Semiconductor will develop a rad-hard multi-core embedded processor / memory system that will be fabricated in a multi-layer 3-D integrated circuit. Phase I will focus on the system design. We will complete the RTL to GDSII synthesis of the processor and system components. The stack will incorporate Tezzaron’s patented 3-D Octopus memory, which has b ...

  5. FADEC Cooling Using High Temperature Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF073049

    The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation. It is historically mounted on the engine case to minimize the routing length of the sensor and actuator wiring. The FADEC must be maintained below 63°C, while the environment can be as hot as 170°C. The current design uses fuel to cool the FADEC, however, this often limits the allowable ground or flight idle time bef ...

  6. Fast Response Fabric Test Setup and Dynamic Fabric Model for BURNSIM

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071025

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop a Fast Thermal Response Fabric Test Setup for various thermal hazard scenarios involving convection (hot gas impingement by the jet engine exhaust), radiation (fire) and combination of convection and radiation (post-crash fire of aircraft, fire flash or bomb blast). The fabric test setup will (i) measure the thermal response of various clothin ...

  7. Terahertz Source and Spectrometer

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: AF073012

    High power, high frequency (100 GHz to 7 THz) RF sources can provide revolutionary advances in several militarily significant areas. THz imaging, spectroscopy and communications are important emerging applications. A THz spectrometer making use of a high power, tunable source would provide an invaluable tool for exploring these applications and the effects of THz radiation on biological systems. ...

  8. Variable Thrust Hybrid Propulsion for Mission Flexibility

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD08PR3

    A novel type of high burning rate hybrid rocket fuel is an enabling technology for a wide range of DoD rocket propulsion applications. This fuel system has been demonstrated to provide burn rate at least four times that of conventional polymers, while retaining the physical properties and specific impulse capability of HTPB based fuels. The result is a high density impulse capability utilizing s ...

  9. Particle Sampling System Designed to Simulate Aging of Aircraft Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06302

    ARI is developing an aircraft exhaust sampling system that transitions condensable species to the condensed phase in a manner that mimics what happens when the exhaust is emitted into the atmosphere. Standard engine-exit plane measurements are not suitable for these volatile particles because they form downstream of the aircraft as the exhaust plume mixes with ambient air and cools. Downstream mea ...

  10. Software Partitioning to Migrate Critical Software Components to Trusted Hardware

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: OSD08IA1

    ASD proposes to develop and integrate an Application Partitioning Toolkit (APT). The APT provides an environment for the partitioning, analysis and the construction of a distributed application. The initial target of the toolkit is the OSD06-IA7 secure coprocessor and application monitor. The toolkit consists of the following components: 1. A Windows based development environment, which is able to ...
