  1. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  2. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) Flow Solver Suitable for Modeling Conjugate Heat Transfer

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19BT027

    Accurate prediction heat transfer in gas turbine components subject to cooling requires high fidelity modeling of heat transfer in the presence of high Reynolds number turbulent flow. The cooling internal to the blades results in sustained temperature gradients within the structural parts, from low temperature in the interior of the structure to increasingly higher temperature closer to the surfac ...

  3. A Hierarchical and Extendable, Component-Based Simulation Tool for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT025

    The requirements for thermal management on tactical aircraft systems have reached a level at which integrated system design must be considered early in the aircraft design process. An integrated propulsion, power and thermal modeling and simulation design approach is necessary for reduced size, weight and power requirements. At the same time, there is an urgent need for capabilities that enable an ...

  4. Data Science Techniques for Various Mission Planning Processes and Performance Validation

    SBC: PERCEPTRONICS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N19BT029

    Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...

  5. AI-Driven, Secure Navy Mission Planning via Deep Reinforcement Learning and Attribute-Based Multi-Level Security

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N19BT029

    Current mission planning systems allow strike planners and operations centers to perform time-sensitive strike planning, execution monitoring, and validate mission effects using XML-based tools that visualize time critical attack plan and track plan status vs. execution. In this proposed STTR Phase I design for the Next Generation Navy Mission Planning (NGNMPS) system, we will identify expanded op ...

  6. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: Global Circuit Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  8. Room Temperature Quantum Memory

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...

  9. Eliminating Ransomware Attacks with Program Access Control (PAC)

    SBC: MARC PEREZ            Topic: AF19BT001

    In the wake of ransomware reaching epidemic proportions and the current anti-ransomware products’ inability to stop its march, there is a great deal of urgency in creating effective countermeasures. Our proposal is to design and subsequently develop a technology called Program Access Control (PAC), that can positively protect data on both consumer and enterprise systems. If successfully dep ...

  10. Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)-Enabled Chip-Scale Atomic Devices (CSAD) for Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19BT001

    Sensors based on chip-scale atomic devices (CSADs) offer portability, manufacturability, and high performance for precision navigation and timing (PNT) missions. Key systems for PNT including atom interferometric gyroscopes (AIG) and atomic clocks. Ongoing advances and innovations in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are directly relevant to CSADs. Different material bases have been used in PICs ...
