  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    The proposed project will rectify the current bottleneck in the simulation of 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. In the existing software, fields in the air are approximated by an artificial magnetic diffusion equation, which is both computationally expensive and nonphysical. The proposed solution avoids any nonphysical quantities and relies on exact conditions for the qu ...

  7. Active Resource Manager (ARM)

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: OSD05NC5

    The Active Resource Manager (ARM) will perform dynamic decision-making for self-managing networks. To accomplish this, ARM will access information from a wide range of network resources and cyber-defense sensors, and it will use this information to generate and maintain a situation awareness model. The situation model will consist of a structured, dynamic representation of significant situation p ...

  8. Advanced Analog Micro-lens Technology

    SBC: GRASSMERE DYNAMICS            Topic: AF071003

    This proposal will demonstrate the feasibility of producing diffraction-limited anamorphic microlens arrays for Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors used on very large aperture astronomical telescopes with multiple off-axis laser guide stars. A high-quality lenslet arrays will be fabricated with gray scale mask lithography and reactive chemical etching. Four advanced gray scale photolithographic mask ...

  9. Advanced Analog Micro-lens Technology

    SBC: GRASSMERE DYNAMICS            Topic: AF071003

    To better quantify the benefits from the advanced microlens technology developed in the Phase I we plan to have microlenses installed in three astronomical telescopes. In Phase II we are planning to complete the fabrication of the remaining 4 microlenses needed for Gemini telescope and ,also fabricate microlenses for SOR telescopes in New Mexico (NGAS)and Hawaii. This will provide a direct evalua ...

  10. Advanced Combat Simulation for More Effective Anti-Terrorist Operations

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF07T023

    This proposal is for the development of an architecture for asymmetric and anti-terrorist simulations and the application of that architecture in the design and development of multiple user-friendly, PC-based, artificially intelligent asymmetric combat simulation systems. This effort will utilize a number of existing, mature computer wargames and will focus on enhancements to those game systems u ...
