  1. Reliable, Rapid and Cost Effective Fabrication Techniques for Larger Scale Scramjet Engines

    SBC: Voxel Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF191067

    The scramjet engine is the key propulsion technology for enabling hypersonic flight systems. Its components are subjected to high heat loads, requiring complex cooling structures to ensure material survivability. Current fabrication methods have issues with internal surface finish, minimum feature size, maximum part size, channel clogging and high scrap rates. These issues result in cost increases ...

  2. Development of a High Power Broadband Ultraviolet Light Source

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: AF191044

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a high power flashlight emitting broadband ultraviolet light for missile signature simulation. This will be achieved by growing large area light emitting diodes (LED) on single crystalline AlN substrate, which increases power density by more than an order of magnitude compared to conventional UV LEDs grown on sapphire substrates. In combination with an ...

  3. Parallel GPU Processing for Large Scale State Filters

    SBC: Physical Numerics, LLC            Topic: AF182028

    State vector estimation from time series measurements is a key process in tracking and trajectory estimation, among other applications. We propose a GPU-accelerated software package for Batch Estimation, to be developed in C++ and OpenCL for distributed processing across multiple GPUs with user-defined state vector definitions and measurement models. The proposed architecture is designed for simul ...

  4. Applications Using New Satellite Communications Constellations

    SBC: AVL TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF172009

    This proposal outlines the development of an Active Electronically Steered Antenna (AESA) for use on airborne platforms as an integrated communications terminal. The hardware produced in this effort is intended to support the Global Network Access Terminal (GNAT) whereby the AESA terminal will support connectivity through Ka band commercial SATCOM providers such that it operates as a modem kit and ...

  7. An Alternate Corrosion Resistant Coating to be Applied to Magnesium Components

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF183018

    The Air Force needs to identify and qualify a corrosion resistant coating applicable to magnesium gearboxes, covers and other secondary power system parts. Current coatings, considered corrosion resistant, are often barely better than no coating at all. According to the web sources for FY 20082009, the cost of corrosion to the Air Force was $4.5 billion, with 24% of maintenance cost contributed to ...

  8. Design Framework for Optimized Multifunctional Coatings

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: AF183034

    A design framework for optimized multifunctional coatings requires a fundamental understanding of the physics at multiple length scales. Multifunctional coating systems, like thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) for engine high temperature exhaust regions need to be designed across these multiple scales and as an integrated system. Much of the oxidation, thermal cycling, and damage between the ceramic- ...

  10. Tools to Enable Systematic Testing of Avionics Cyber Security

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF182102

    Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. (VCS) proposes to design and develop the Framework for Avionics Security Testing (FAST) to ensure the creation of cyber resilient aircraft systems by reducing testing complexity, reducing testing cost, and generating more valuable results. Just as Metasploit is an industry standard framework supporting offensive cyber on traditional IT systems, FAST is designed as a fr ...
