  1. Physics-Based Rapid Aeroelastic Model Updating In Support Of Aircraft Flight Testing

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF073142

    The objective of the proposed research aims to develop Reduced Order Models (ROMs) (i.e. POD, HB, combined POD and HB) based upon flight data to better predict the aircraft aeroelastic response at next flight condition, e.g. higher Mach number. By incorporating flight test data and using the highest fidelity computational models in reduced order form we will obtain computational solutions that a ...

  2. Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF071130

    In order to achieve high performance at acceptable cost, PEM fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low relative humidity (near 0 RH) for extended periods of time. However, to date, no commercial PEMs or publicly reported PEMs can meet these requirements. The objectives of this work are: (1) to develop PEMs that have high proton conductivities (50-100 mS/cm) and low area-spec ...

  3. Environmentally Friendly Cleaning for Titanium Welds and Brazing

    SBC: APPLICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES CO.LLC            Topic: AF06326

    The first critical step in welding or brazing is cleaning to remove surface contamination. The Air Force has a need for an environmentally cleaning method that has no waste stream, minimal requirements of personal safety protection, and does not impact component integrity. The Arc Scrubber is an emerging non-chemical cleaning technology that utilizes and electrical arc to remove surface contamin ...

  4. Unresolved Resident Space Object Characterization Using Time-Frequency Analysis

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF071283

    Applied Optimization, Inc. [AO] proposes to demonstrate full feature characterization of unresolved RSOs by performing spectral unmixing and time-frequency analysis of its time and spectrally resolved signature in the visible or infrared spectrum. The characterization will be performed step-by-step by following a taxonomy of feature extraction. Materials identification will be performed via spectr ...

  8. Next Generation Heat Exchangers Using Ceramic Materials and Surface Morphologies

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AF073056

    A ceramic material is proposed wherein surface morphologies are used which enhance the heat transfer performance and reduce heat exchanger weight and volume. This technology would provide a means by which next generation return fuel/air cooler (RFAC) heat exchanger systems could be improved upon. The basic concept is to increase the area-to-volume ratio by fabricating materials which have porous ...

  9. Rechargeable Lithium-Sulfur Battery with Non-Porous Ceramic Separator

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AF073044

    Feasibility of a rechargeable lithium battery with sulfur cathode will be demonstrated. Air Force needs high specific energy, low cost rechargeable batteries for solar energy storage. Low cathode utilization and cycle fade have prevented Li-S batteries from reaching their potential. Cathode utilization can be improved dramatically using apolar and polar solvents in combination. Typically porous s ...
