  1. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator ballscr ...

  2. Integrated In-process Strategy for Material and Process Specification Optimization

    SBC: RELIACOAT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF141208

    ABSTRACT: The thermal spray process has many inherent complexities within each sub-process including feedstock manufacturing, component surface preparation and masking, torch parameter selection, robot trajectory and laboratory coating evaluation. Each sub-process is governed by rigid specifications that provide thermal spray applicators with procedural and process guidelines throughout the appl ...

  3. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...

  4. Wideband RF Digitizer with Integrated Filters

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N142118

    The ability to capture wide instantaneous bandwidth is essential for analysis of various signals-of-interest. Superconductor analog-to-digital converters (ADC) offer discriminating advantages in both bandwidth and fidelity due to very high sampling rates and quantum-accurate digitization based on counting of magnetic flux quanta. Multiple digital-RF receiver systems incorporating superconductor AD ...

  5. DASH: Dynamic, flexible computational acceleration using specialized hardware

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: MDA14012

    Specialized computing hardware, such as GPUs and FPGAs, can provide dramatically better performance than existing, CPU-based systems. This specialized hardware is readily available in the commercial market and widely used in high-performance computing systems, making it easy to achieve high performance per watt and per dollar. The major unsolved challenge in using specialized hardware efficientl ...

  6. Weight Optimized Mitigation to Direct Effects of Lightning Strike on a Missile Body

    SBC: INTEGUMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14014

    While lightning protection has been applied to various small diameter composite missiles, large diameter composite missiles also require viable lightweight solutions for minimizing or eliminating direct lightning strike effects without significantly reducing battle space performance. For purposes of this proposal, our team will focus on the development of lightning strike protection surface skins ...

  7. Variable Gravity Two-Phase Heat Sink for Airborne Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: MUDAWAR THERMAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA14016

    The proposed study concerns the development of a robust two-phase cooling module for airborne directed energy systems. There are five overriding objectives for the proposed Phase I study: (1) cooling module design, fabrication and instrumentation; (2) two-phase cooling loop development; (3) thermal tests; (4) theoretical model of cooling performance as a function of velocity and surface orientati ...

  8. Hybrid Projectile Energy Source

    SBC: Custom Electronics, Inc.            Topic: A14082

    Munitions electrochemical energy sources are a critical component for the SMART electronics providing control and energy to the system electrical components. Projectiles have been becoming increasingly complicated with a greater energy and demand with a smaller energy source payload capacity. Key understanding of the variations in load, constantly changing over time, and whether it is a power or e ...

  9. Using Indigenous Materials for Construction

    SBC: Widder Bros., Inc.            Topic: A14088

    The class of construction techniques grouped generally under the term adobe varies widely according to regional climates and cultures, soil properties and the use of technological enhancements such as reinforcing, concrete, plaster and chemical hardeners. The purpose of the work proposed here is to develop a tool for assembling an optimized, textile-based just-add-earth kit: pre-cut textile reinfo ...

  10. Automated Explotability Reasoning

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: A15043

    Fuzzing techniques will often produce a large enough number of crashing inputs for the program under test that it is important to prioritize them in terms of impact; one natural axis of a bugs impact is whether it can be used in a security exploit. Determining whether a crash is exploitable however is a complex and multi-layered problem. GrammaTech proposes the Chase project, a tool suite for auto ...
