  1. Evaluation of SANDGT Using SOA Framework for Persistent and Risk-Averse Space Situation Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Space superiority needs protected tactical space communications with dynamic spectrum sharing, routing adaptation and interference mitigations against kinetic and non kinetic threats. The main focus of this project is to develop game-theoretic analytics and frameworks to support the Air Forces autonomy science & technology strategy (e.g., "deterrence" posture which in turn may be enabled ...

  2. Evaluation of High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple-Target Tracking Based on Massive Parallelism for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Threat detection of people, vehicles, and others as well as person-vehicle interactions (dismounts) of possible malicious intent are difficult problems due to the complexity of the problem space. The wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems aid analysts to track and identify dismounts, but typically produce an overwhelmingly large amount of information. The large scale data input challeng ...

  3. A Comprehensive Framework to Develop, Refine, and Validate Learning Agents for Tactical Autonomy

    SBC: Orbit Logic Incorporated            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the battle domains of space, ground, air and sea, it is natural that the U.S. move toward incorporating autonomous capabilities to enhance/replace the traditional role of humans. Continued advances in processing capability and techniques to employ decision logic and adaptive learning strategies will soon make this vision reality. To deploy any such capability o ...

  4. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...

  5. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...

  6. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  7. Space Plasma Generator for Artificial Control of Ionosphere

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: Enig Associates, Inc., a small business providing advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to the DoD and DoE, is proposing an innovative and novel electrical approach, using explosive-driven flux compression generators (FCG) to convert explosive chemical energy to electromagnetic energy with very high current output and superb energy conversion efficiency and then Joule heat light ...

  8. High Performance and Novel Target Recognition Algorithm in the Sparse Measurement Space

    SBC: APPLIED RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Our main objective in this project is to propose a novel Structured Sparse Priors for Target Recognition (SSPTR) system and to demonstrate that discriminative applications such as data clustering or target detection, tracking, and classification can be solved effectively and directly on the compressed measurement domain without the need to recover the original data. Our proposed sparse-r ...

  9. Harness Enhanced Awareness for Radio System (HEARS) for Dynamic Spectrum Access in Space Application

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: In this project, IFT and its academic partner GMU developed an innovative Harness Enhanced Awareness for Radio Systems (HEARS) framework and technical underpinnings for DSA systems operating under conditions of imperfect knowledge, and used the framework to address challenging problems in satellite communication (SATCOM)DSA. As the logical core of the HEARS, Multi-Entity Bayesian Network ...

  10. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at Georgia Tech plan to enhance current capabilities to ...
