  1. Embedded, Distributed Electric Propulsion for Short Takeoff and Landing Vehicles

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: AF192D002

    The Air Force has a need for low-cost, short takeoff and landing vehicles to provide recovery and transport support in contested areas while minimizing the required number of operational personnel. An autonomous vehicle capable of 100 miles operational radius, cruise speed greater than 100 kts at 4000 ft, and takeoff/landing zone of 50 ft x 50 ft is desired to perform combat search and rescue, as ...

  2. Advanced Cooling Technologies for Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Terminals

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: N172137

    The next generation Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS JTRS) is currently undergoing an upgrade to integrate new Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) capabilities. The high-power processors required generate more heat than previous shop replaceable units (SRUs). The upgraded MIDS JTRS radio terminal will generate up to approximately 30% higher ...

  3. Crystallographic orientation mapping of minimally prepeared large nonplanar surfaces

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N192072

    The importance of determining crystallographic orientation information over large areas has existed within the materials science community for solutions to a variety of applications in aerospace and otherwise since the connection of MTRs and material performance was discovered, but it isn’t until recently that a feasible solution has existed. In this work, MRL will demonstrate the feasibility of ...

  4. Rapid Repair of Corroded Fastener Holes (19-RD-189)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N192085

    In the naval aircraft many disparate materials are subject to galvanic corrosion, due to the marine environment. Some of these aircraft have hybrid (carbon fiber composite/aluminum) designs that exhibit accelerated corrosion damage, compared to legacy all-metal frames, due to galvanic interaction between the fastener, the composite skin, and the aluminum frame. In the Phase I SBIR program, UES Inc ...

  5. Ceramic Durable Solid Lubricant Coating for Firearms

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N192057

    Medium caliber aircraft guns like the M197 rotary cannon experience multiple points of friction, needing preventative maintenance cycles to address wear and corrosion. Wet firearm lubricants like CLP and TW25B must be regularly removed and re-applied because they collect sand, dust, and carbon, increasing wear on the part. In contrast, durable solid lubricants (DSLs) can be applied as one-time, pe ...

  6. Nano-Hardened Electroplated Coatings for Improved Rotary Cannon Lifespan


    Rotary cannon type weapons, such as the M197 electric cannon, currently require servicing every 28 days in order to remove abrasive particulate and to relubricate the rotary drum. The Navy is currently seeking a one-time application coating, applied at the time of manufacturing or retrofit, which will at least double the time between servicing to 56 days or more. Mainstream Engineering proposes to ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Breathing Air Manifold For Air Quality Sampling (19-RD-156)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF191016

    In recent years, Department of Defense (DoD) readiness has been negatively impacted due to increased reports of unidentified physiological events (UPE’s) during and after fixed-wing flight missions and training. One potential cause of such UPE’s is chemical contamination in pilot breathing air. A gap remains in the development of a standardized and manufacturable investigative device ...

  9. Artificially Intelligent Object with Virtual Presentation of Engineering and Logistics Data

    SBC: avnik defense solutions inc            Topic: N192065

    The Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Center (NATEC) maintains extensive, separate data sets for logistics and engineering in multiple formats which would be more valuable if the data could be integrated and shared to a greater degree.AVNIK Defense Solutions, Inc. proposes, with our subcontract team members Instrumental Sciences, Inc. (ISI) and Engenix, a Concurrent Engineering Logi ...

  10. 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 ...
