  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 ...

  2. Aircraft Brake Titanium Torque Tube Heat Damage Nondestructive Inspection

    SBC: Vibrant Corporation            Topic: AF182013

    Titanium torque tubes in aircraft braking systems can suffer material property degradation from heat damage in extreme braking events. The Air Force requires a nondestructive inspection (NDI) method to identify heat-damaged titanium torque tubes. Vibrant Corporation performs NDI services in the aerospace industry using its Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) technology. PCRT uses the reso ...
