  1. WIN System for Reduced Total Ownership Cost Across Aircraft and other DoD Platforms

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    Higher acquisition costs (i.e. cost escalations) and delayed deliveries in new aircraft procurements, e.g. F-35, have had serious downstream consequences for AF needs/priorities. DoD can afford to buy fewer aircraft which directly impacts adequate fleet readiness. Labor content in manufacturing the pervasive (over 60 miles in typical B-737) infrastructure of wire harnesses is reportedly the larges ...

  2. Improving Mission-critical System Readiness and Availability using TEAMS

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF182005

    Ensuring high system availability and readiness of mission-critical equipment is a key issue for all branches of military. Regular and accurate readiness assessment of the equipment is essential in ensuring that the system performs as desired during the mission. Systems designed for repeated usage with decades of operational life requirement such as aircraft, navy ships and armament vehicles requi ...

  4. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: SWIFT TEXTILE METALIZING LLC            Topic: AF191005

    An auxetic material is defined as having a negative Poissons ratio, whereby a counter intuitive effect is observed. During elongation the material expands perpendicular to the plane of elongation resulting in a compensatory effect for the necking phenomenon typically observed at the midpoint of the fabric. A conductive auxetic fabric may be produced which can exhibit electrical resistance stabilit ...

  5. SysEVAL: An Initial System Design Assessment Tool for Testability and Availability Evaluation

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF191005

    A key need enunciated to QSI by various DoD and NASA technical personnel involved in the areas of Fault Management (FM) is the lack of a systematic, standardized process to evaluate a system, being designed or upgraded, for its intrinsic merits related to testability, serviceability and readiness. QSI proposes to leverage its COTS TEAMS software and its modeling and analysis abilities and adapt it ...

  8. Training for Cyber Operations

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF171029

    Air Force leadership has repeatedly emphasized the criticality of cyberspace as a warfighting domain both in its own right and as a critical part of the multi-domain battle.An important part of that challenge is optimizing the training provided to cyber warriors.A Phase I review of the cyber operations training pipeline indicated that initial qualification training was more heavily weighted to kno ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Pressure-Gain Combustion Turbopump Drive System

    SBC: New Cycle Engineering LLC            Topic: AF182064

    The use of a Rotating Detonation Engine (RDE) as a gas-generator or pre-combustor to power the turbopump in a conventional rocket cycle will enable a system level improvement of the full rocket engine cycle. The detonation cycle is fundamentally more efficient than a comparable constant pressure Brayton cycle and generates less entropy and more pressure. The RDE captures a detonation wave in an an ...
