  1. Target Recognition and Acquisition in Complex Environments (TRACE)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HQ085021S000108

    The Space Development Agency’s (SDA) Tracking Layer is tasked with providing global indications, warning, tracking, and targeting of advanced missile threats, including hypersonic missile systems. They are currently leading the development of an Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) Missile Tracking satellite constellation in LEO as part of the DoD’s future threat-driven National Defense Space A ...

  2. Performance Measurements for Electrocoat Primer and Powder Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Corrosion of Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to cost $5.7 billion per year and result in 2.1 million non-available hours.  The first line of defense and single most important factor in controlling corrosion of aircraft is the protective coating system.  Chromate containing primers used for aerospace are the largest single source of hexavalent chromium in the US DoD, but elimination ...

  3. The ScreenVane Family of Inlet Distortion Generators for Ground Based Testing of Fans, Compressors and Engines

    SBC: Technology In Blacksburg Inc            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Due to requirements to minimize radar cross-sections, most modern turbine engines of military aircraft are coupled with offset diffusers that create significant fan face distortion. Conceptual blended-wing/body commercial aircraft also create distortion challenges. In order to fully understand the effects of complex inlet distortions on conventional fan and compressor designs, a range of inlet dis ...

  5. Novel Approaches to Electromagnetic Communication through Thin Collisional Plasmas

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    In this proposal, we study the behavior of electric monopole and magnetic dipole antennas in a collisional plasma such that the plasma thickness is much less than the EM wavelength. Since standard wave theory may not apply to this situation, current theor

  9. Intelligent fly-by-feel systems for autonomous aircraft


    Future intelligent autonomous vehicles like the Orb/eVTOL/UAM (Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing/Urban Air Mobility) vehicles will be able to “feel”, “think”, and “react” in real time by incorporating high-resolution state-sensing, awareness, and self-diagnostic capabilities. They will be able to sense and observe phenomena at unprecedented length and time scales allowing for super ...
