  1. Ultralightweight Airframe Concepts for Air-launched Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Judd Systems Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF151072

    The main goal of the ALERT Phase II program is the preliminary design of a robust air vehicle that can meet all the performance goals while using a structural design with a high content of dielectric skins. This includes determining the flight envelope required to complete the desired customer missions, and then sizing the flight surfaces and propulsion system for optimum performance. Since the AL ...

  3. Biomimetic Design of Morphing Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    Over the past two decades significant progress has been made on the development of mission capable micro air vehicles (MAV) and small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) but the full potential of implementing multifunctional morphing wings using active materials has not been realized.A need exists to develop a MAV wing that can autonomously adapt to flight conditions allowing the vehicle to aggressiv ...

  5. Avian Vision Integrated Deterrent (AVID)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF161023

    Lynntech and Purdue University aims to rationally design effective retrofits for photovoltaic (PV) installations located in the Pacific Flyway migratory corridor, based on what birds actually perceive.Vision in birds is entirely unlike our own, and what might seem very similar to us can be different to a bird species.Variation amongst different birds is considerable--what is visible or obvious to ...

  6. Microdosimetry of High Amplitude Ultrashort RF and Electric Fields

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF161048

    Time-varying electric fields can be used to manipulate the behavior of biological cells. Common applications include electroporation for delivery of pharmaceutical compounds or genetic material, inhibition of cell migration and adhesion, and cell apoptosis. Recently, the application of nanosecond pulsed electric fields has been observed to produce interesting biological effects that are useful for ...
