  2. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The ability to oxidize organic functional groups in a selective manner is of major importance in preparing compounds of interest to the Air Force and DoD. This is particularly critical in the preparation of high energy density compounds and fuels. Heterocyclic ring systems that contain both nitro and amino groups have been found to be an important class of compounds that are useful in ...

  3. Long-Endurance Runwayless Composite Aircraft (Orca) UAS

    SBC: NUCLEUS SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: AF112006

    ABSTRACT: A persistent presence above the battlefield provides for distinct advantages in areas of operation. Aerial platforms can suspend surveillance, SIGINT and C3 payloads aloft for the use of operators and observers. These resources have proven extremely effective when deployed in the field by personnel near the operating area. Such is the case when operating UAVs from forward positions. The ...

  6. Precision Microvalve for Green Propellants

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF083116

    ABSTRACT: Busek proposes to develop a flight-prototype piezo microvalve useful for micro chemical thrusters that require precisely metered flow rates. Deriving from a flight-qualified Busek microvalve and a successful proof-of-concept Phase I laboratory prototype, this proposed valve will be small, lightweight, and ready for flight qualification. It can linearly actuate thrust up to the 100 mN d ...

  8. Simulation for Ubiquitous Red Flag Instruction and Readying (SUREFIRE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF093027

    ABSTRACT: Participants in Red Flag (RF) exercises must be familiar with specific procedures, conditions, and training rules for range safety. Preparing non-US participants requires foreign travel of USAF personnel, which is expensive in money, time, and personnel resources. Considerable savings could be realized with a foreign deployable pre-exercise training environment, requiring no in-country ...
