  1. "Flexible, Low VOC, Rapid-Cure, Topcoat-Compatible Aircraft Primer Coating"

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF07T010

    Current polysulfide based aircraft primers have excellent flexibility/elongation properties and do not fail around seams and fasteners. These primers, however, do not comply with the stringent emission regulations set forth by NESHAP due to excess VOC content. Additionally, these primers cure slowly under humid conditions and reduce the weatherability of topcoat/primer system due to migration of ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    In this program, Busek Co. Inc and Stanford University will develop and demonstrate a multi-mode high power plasma gun that can be used for both space propulsion and as a counter-measure against space debris or potentially hostile spacecraft. Investigations of this Coaxial High Energy (CHENG) thruster in the 1980's showed that it can damage a target. Because it is efficient over a wide range of ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  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 framework for intelligent Fusion Of Real-Time Measures Across Live-Virtual-Constructive Environments (FORMAL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    While billions of dollars have been spent over the past several years on the development of training systems, testing infrastructures, and Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) interoperability, there is still no common approach to objective human performance measurement. The purpose, after all, of a Distributed Mission Operations environment is to deliver comprehensive training exercises to the warfigh ...

  8. A High Fidelity Digital Interference Generator (DIG) with an Electromagnetic Wavefront Generator (EWG)

    SBC: Bedford Signals Corporation            Topic: AF04279

    The Air Force is looking to develop an open-air jamming and interference test capability, that does not require jamming clearance from the FAA. The system must be able to provide realistic system level tests for GPS receivers, antennas, and amplifiers. Bedford Signals proposes the advanced development of innovative technologies to enable a Completely Integrated Jamming Test System (CIJTS): an Elec ...

  9. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers


    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  10. A Long-Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array with Ultra-high Sensitivity and Large Field-of-View


    The SBIR Phase II proposal aims to develop a prototype of an ultra-sensitive long-wave infrared (LWIR) focal plane array (FPA) based on the Phase I feasibility investigation. LWIR FPA is of great importance in space object detection and tracking. Issues of existing HgCdTe (MCT) and InSb FPAs include: difficulties in material growth, non-uniformity, and cost. Quantum well infrared photodetectors (Q ...
