  5. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF17AT008

    MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes to develop an atmospheric characterization sensor which unifies the measurement of atmospheric turbulence and refractivity through target-in-the-loop measurements, requiring no augmentation of the target or equipment on the other end of the path. We image multi-wavelength target illumination and remove atmospheric blurring us ...

  7. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

  9. Spiral: A Framework for Chaotic Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT017

    Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...
