  1. A Multiscale Simulation Framework to Model Energetic Materials Subjected to Shock Loading

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: The overall objective of this project is to develop scalable simulation components that effectively model the meso-scale physics of heterogeneous energetic materials subject to dynamic shock loading including matrix debonding, void collapse, and damage due to crystal to crystal interactions, and bridges the meso-scale to the macro-scale for system scale simulations of the transition to d ...

  2. A Multiscale-Multiphysics Tool for Linking Coupon to Component Behavior of CMCs in Relevant Service Environment

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: AF151120

    ABSTRACT:The main objective of the proposed work is to develop and implement a Multiscale-Multiphysics analysis tool for design, development and analysis CMC components. The multiscale-multiphysics analysis methodology will effectively capture the complex multi-axial stress states in SiC-SiC based CMC sub-elements and components under relevant operating conditions. The unique features of the Multi ...

  3. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  4. Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: ENGINE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: Desired tactical requirements for unmanned aerial systems (UASs) exceed current capabilities for performance, reliability, maintainability, cost and supportability. Mission requirements such as extended endurance, increased power for auxiliary/sensor systems, and low altitude, low speed maneuverability are becoming paramount, specifically, in the 10,000 lb class of vehicles. These desir ...

  5. Advanced UHF SATCOM Satellite Protection Features

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: N152123

    The proposed project involves the integration of an Artificial Magnetic Materials (AMMs) with a planar antenna system with the system exhibiting multiple RFI mitigation features. The system will protect against spatial RFI by using a metamaterial surface to reduce the beamwidth of the radiation pattern. The antenna systems will be designed as an array of supercells consisting of the radiating elem ...

  6. Aerodynamic Dome Manufacturing Cost Reduction

    SBC: OPTIPRO SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N132121

    Future missile systems will abandon the traditional hemi-spherical shape for shapes resembling a tangent Ogive. An ogive shaped dome has better aerodynamic capabilities than its spherical counterpart. This enables the missile to fly faster, farther, and with more accuracy while also increasing its payload capacity. The optical material of choice is polycrystalline alumina, PCA, which is a hard cer ...

  7. ANTSSAnalysis Tools for System Surety

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF141092

    ABSTRACT:The ANTSS project will develop an integrated suite of automated tools that assist the analysis and review of critical software, particularly for independent verification and validation. The tool set combines dynamic test tools (test management, test suite quality measurement, automated test generation) and static program analysis tools (code compliance checking, tools that find program fl ...

  8. Attitude Control Actuators for Operationally Responsive Space

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: AF141106

    ABSTRACT:The 2011 launches of ORS-1and TacSat-4 have demonstrated the feasibility to rapidly deploy spacecraft. These successes and progress on the Modular Space Vehicle, along with standardization (Space Plug and Play Architecture) continue to show promise in a responsive space architecture focused on modularity and reconfigurability. There is a need to enhance the capability of small spacecraft ...

  10. Automated Acoustic Monitoring System

    SBC: High Rez Consulting, LLC            Topic: N151030

    Navy combat systems employ many underwater acoustic sensors to detect submerged threats. The performance of these sensors must be maintained at high levels for the combat system to perform effectively. These sensors are exposed to harsh environments and operating conditions that, over time, compromise sensor health resulting in degraded detection performance. Additionally, excessive radiated noise ...
