  1. Fast Response Heat Flux Sensors and Efficient Data Reduction Methodology for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF17AT001

    There is a DoD need for the development of robust sensors to obtain temporally and spatially resolved surface temperature and heat flux measurements on test articles in blowdown and continuous hypersonic wind tunnels. These micro-heat flux sensors are required in order to better understand the state of the boundary layer of a hypersonic vehicle; to better understand boundary layer instabilities; a ...

  2. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  3. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model

    SBC: Space Sciences Innovations INC            Topic: AF17CT03

    Near-Earth space environment is hazardous to satellites. This harsh particle radiation can penetrate protective shielding, accumulate in sensitive materials and can damage even well shielded electronic components causing temporary malfunctions or a complete system/mission loss. The goal of the proposed work is to provide the Air Force with a state-of-the-art model of the outer zone energetic elect ...

  4. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...

  5. ENHANCE – Enabling Hybrid Anodes with Nano-Carbon Electrodes

    SBC: Cellec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT014

    The objective of this research program is to develop an ultra-lightweight carbon nanotube-lithium metal (CNT-Li) hybrid anode to enable high energy density lithium ion cells. These CNT-Li anodes will be paired with carbon nanotube enhanced high areal loading (mAh/cm2) cathodes to achieve cell-level energy densities that exceed 400 Wh/kg at the cell-level and have the potential to exceed 500 Wh/kg. ...

  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 ...

  7. Design of Flexible Materials for Aerodynamic Structures

    SBC: Atrevida Science LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    The PI has worked on a design concept for a wind turbine blade with adaptive twist transformation. The design improves wind capture and reduces loading on the system drivetrain turbine by adapting the twist distribution in relation to wind speed. Structural adaptability is enabled by actuating a series of compliant segments that are mounted on a relatively rigid spar. The segments are assumed to h ...
