  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF182001

    Soil moisture is an important parameter for AF weather measurements and forecasting.It impacts Army operations (off-road mobility, land operations) and Intelligence Communitys knowledge (agriculture: social unrest).AF has classified soil moisture measurements and data as a DoD space-based environmental monitoring gap.If unmitigated, the lack of soil moisture data will diminish our asymmetric advan ...

  3. Situation Awareness Repair System (SARS)

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF19AT001

    NextGen Federal Systems is proposing a system that addresses one of key problems for human-machine teams as they operate under conditions where communications links can be periodically lost or jammed. One of the primary challenges is that flight crews have to quickly assimilate all of the changes and events that have occurred to the unmanned platform during the outage in order to re-establish a sh ...

  9. Metal Matrix Composite Enchanced Aluminum Structures


    The proposed research pursues a path for reducing structural weight, increasing structural performance, and reducing fabrication cost while also minimizing maintainability. The approach, which is based on selective reinforcement, is a change in the basic design philosophy and will result in the development of a hybrid material form. The selective reinforcement approach allows the structural desi ...
