  1. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Sage Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: The proposed VPHS (Vision Processor for Helmet Systems) is an advanced technology image processing engine that is designed to provide the image processing requirements of helmet mounted imagery systems. The VPHS will input high resolution image data from imaging sensors, process that data to yield enhanced visualization and output the imagery to operator displays. The VPHS will employ im ...

  2. Brahms Contested Airspace Simulation Testbed (Brahms-CAST)

    SBC: Aqru Research and Technology, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: Remarkable advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems integration are providing aircrew with cockpit automation systems of unprecedented sophistication. Onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out pilot commands, and advise the pilot (onboard or remote) as to aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots ...

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

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Methodology for prediction of soot build-up in liquid film-cooled rocket engines will be incorporated into the CRUNCH CFD code, using a reduced-mechanism pyrolysis model and soot formation model developed at University of Virginia. A companion experimental program will be conducted at University of Virginia to collect data for calibration of the pyrolysis models for conditions and fuels ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Plasma Generator for Controlled Enhancement of the Ionosphere

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: The proposed program is a joint effort between General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) and Drexel University. The proposed concept for Plasma Generation is based on the use of highly exothermic condensed phase reactions yielding temperatures considerably higher than the boiling points of candidate metal elements with residual energy to maximize their vapor yield and, with high probability to enter ...

  6. DIMAGIC: Data Infrastructure for Materials Genome with Innovation and Certification

    SBC: MATERIALS GENOME INC            Topic: AF15AT30

    ABSTRACT: Present CALPHAD software tools do not address data heterogeneity and fragmentation challenges in a way conducive to the feasible development and maintenance of high-quality databases of more than, perhaps, 5 or 6 components, yet alloy systems of commercial interest can easily reach 12-15 components. We propose to use a newly developed thermodynamic software engine and new algorithms to d ...

  7. Improved Materials and Designs for High Pressure Wind Tunnel Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF15AT03

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I effort will identify and evaluate candidate materials to replace existing beryllium-copper alloy components for use in aerospace ground test flow facilities. The candidate materials must offer similar or better performance metrics (dimensional stability, lifetime, etc.), be domestically and readily available, offer similar or cheaper costs, and the ability to withstand temp ...

  8. Phase Transitions, Nucleation and Mixing Modeling through Trans-Critical Conditions

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF14AT23

    ABSTRACT: The goal of the Phase I effort is to develop a detailed and comprehensive plan that identifies specific, tangible improvements to improve the fidelity of modeling trans-critical combustors. Both hydrogen/oxygen as well as hydrocarbon (RP-1, RP-2) / oxygen systems will be considered. The focus will be on developing improved modules for equations of state for trans-critical mixtures, as ...

  9. A High Fidelity, Physics-based Mid-IR Bismides Semiconductor Laser Simulator for High Power Outputs

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT27

    ABSTRACT: Recently quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) and interband cascade lasers (ICLs) have progressed steadily in the 3.5 10 m range with optical powers < 0.5 W. However, these devices rely on complicated band alignment and large numbers of repeating quantum wells which pose significant challenges in device fabrication. Furthermore, the sub-Watt power limitation and poor wall-plug efficiencies (W ...

  10. Accurate Open Architecture Air Vehicle Modeling and Simulation (AOAVMS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: In order to effectively utilize multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for missions such as Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Strike, etc., it is vital to have Open Architecture (OA) tools that accurately model and simulate the interaction of autonomous, unmanned, and manned air vehicles. Daniel H. Wagner Associates (DHWA) proposes to develop automated, efficient, O ...
