  1. Rapid construction of 3-D Satellite models from limited amounts of 2-D imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF181020

    Increases in space traffic have caused an ever-growing need to recognize, track, and determine the operational state of both known and unknown satellites in-situ. Imagery from ground and/or space-based observation platforms provide a convenient and versatile data source for such characterization but is often limited in both quantity and quality. Rapid and automated 3D reconstruction of satellite m ...

  3. Time-accurate and Fast-running Model for Damaged Structures Aeroelastic Vulnerability Assessment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF182026

    An efficient and robust fluid modal method is proposed to reduce the fully-coupled aeroelasticity problem of threat-damaged flight surfaces to a second order multi-degrees-of-freedom (DOFs) system (as low as 2) while maintaining dominant nonlinearity and effects of all DOFs desired in the model. The proposed method provides a time-accurate, fast-running solution for describing the aeroelastic resp ...

  10. Micro Reactor Synthesis of Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Current production of AF-M315E relies on foreign sourced materials. It also includes a nitration step to make HEHN from HEH which is currently done in a slow batch process. This program will build a microreactor to continuously produce HEHN, reducing the total time spent on the nitration process from weeks to days. This program will also scale up the electrolytic cell built in the Phase I program ...
