  1. 3D Measurement for Aircraft Maintenance and Part Remanufacture

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF05267

    Those responsible for maintaining the operational status of the aircraft of the United States Air Force face many increasingly difficult challenges in completing their mission. With an ever aging, and yet, ever more valuable inventory of older aircraft, the maintenance depots assigned their upkeep and readiness continually work to maximize flight time and minimize costs. As a result, many are lo ...

  2. 3D Radar Imaging

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA04155

    This effort proposes the use of three-dimensional radar imaging to potentially enhance Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) performance. The concept extends conventional two-dimensional range-Doppler imaging by exploiting the relative motion of a radar target in an additional plane with respect to the radar line of sight, allowing resolution of scattering features in two cross-range planes. Thr ...

  3. A Comprehensive Modeling Tool for Cold Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05130

    CFDRC proposes to develop a comprehensive, high fidelity commercial quality simulation tool for modeling the Cold Hearth Melting (CHM) processing of Titanium alloys. The code will accurately predict the transient temperature distribution, flow patterns, skull shape, species evaporation, and particle fates in the hearth region for a given set of dynamic operating conditions. The foundation for this ...

  4. A Computational Framework for Multiscale Simulations of Weakly Ionized Plasmas

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF07T022

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a unified computational framework integrating adequate physical models for simulating complex non-equilibrium plasmas. Plasma dynamics is characterized by disparate spatial and temporal scales each described by appropriate physical models. The project aims to classify possible scenarios and develop general recipes for clustering phase space to dynami ...

  5. A Continuous Intelligent Health-Status Monitoring Device

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A05160

    Real time monitoring of patients with traumatic injuries is essential for determination of triage categories, evacuation priority, and required interventions. A portable, non-invasive monitoring device can provide significant field information for first responders and significantly improve survivability by estimating a patient's real-time status and prognosis. In order to facilitate real-time ass ...

  6. A Coupled Transport and Fate Model for Health and Environmental Effects

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05316

    A coupled transport, fate and human effects model is proposed that may be used to better understand and minimize the occupational exposure encountered during the maintenance of aircraft and other associated weapons systems while improving their operational efficiency. In Phase I a Computational Fluid Dynamics-based, micro-scale transport and dispersion model will be integrated with lung deposition ...

  7. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    We propose the development of a high-throughput screening platform to facilitate the discovery of lead compounds from natural product extracts (NPEs). The proposed effort encompasses (a) utilization of NPEs from novel sources (cave organisms) with rich chemical diversity, (b) development of assays for specifically identified malaria targets, and (c) development of data management and analysis tool ...

  8. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  9. A Microfluidic System for Affinity Reagent Generation and Assay Development for High-Throughput Biomarker Validation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07147

    Protein biomarkers are finding increasing application in Force Health Protection and health surveillance. However, very few biomarkers have been verified and validated. This deficiency has been ascribed primarily to availability of reagents (affinity probes). There is a need for assays to measure biomarker candidates, which must be accompanied by the development of reagents for detection. We propo ...

  10. A New Method for Automation and Optimization of the Curve Fit Kinetics Generating Process

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05194

    Hydrocarbon combustion chemical kinetics are extremely complex, with detailed reaction mechanisms typically consist of thousands of reaction steps and hundreds of species. However, most reacting flow CFD simulations can only afford reduced global mechanisms with standard Arrhenius rates. Unfortunately, global mechanisms are typically only valid over limited operating ranges and cannot account fo ...
