  1. Isocyanate-Free Polyurethane Resins for One-Component, Ambient-Cure Coatings

    SBC: RENUVIX LLC            Topic: 15NCER04

    The Phase I project showed that novel urethane-functional (NUF) resins could be produced that were free of isocyanates and very useful for one-component, ambient-cured (OCAC) coatings. Resins for OCAC coatings, which are expected to be valued at $5.7 billion by 2019, are used to produce a variety of coatings including oil-based paints, wood stains, varnishes, and aerosol paints._x000D_ Phase I re ...

  2. Target-In-The-Loop Sensing Suite for Long-Range Atmospheric Effects Characterization

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF17AT008

    This project offers a novel polychromatic target-in-the-loop atmospheric sensing (TILAS) concept for in situ characterization of the combined effects of atmospheric turbulence, refractivity, transmittance, and optical path difference (piston phase) over long-range, low elevation angle atmospheric paths. The proposed concept allows practical implementation of a modular compact TILAS atmospheric sen ...

  3. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

  4. Fiber-Coupled Hyperspectral Thermal LWIR Imaging Sensor Suite for Combustion System Diagnostics

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT016

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I effort by Spectral Energies LLC is to design and develop a fiber-coupled hyperspectral LWIR thermal imaging sensor suite for temperature measurements in practical combustors. The proposed sensor suite will be capable of performing spectrally resolved imaging to achieve accurate temperature measurements in practical gas-turbine engines while resolving optical i ...

  5. Spiral: A Framework for Chaotic Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT017

    Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...

  6. KHz-MHz Rate Laser-Based Tracking of Particles and Product Gases for Multiphase Blast

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT020

    The overall goal of the proposed research program is to design a ruggedized imaging system capable of visualization and analysis of the particle field and product gases in a multiphase blast. This will be accomplished by combining kHz-MHz-rate burst-mode laser technology with tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV) and new nonlinear particle tracking methods to resolve dense particle fields. ...

  7. Experimentally Derived Scaling Laws from Spatiotemporally Resolved Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT15

    The objectives of this research effort are to experimentally derive the scaling laws up to 30 bar for key combustion species and temperature for reactions involving various hydrocarbon fuels in such a way so that the spatio-temporally resolved measurements would not be influenced by signal-degrading processes such as quenching, photolytic interference, Stark shift, and stimulated Raman. This build ...

  8. Robust Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Reversible Electroplating of Mirrors

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT20

    This proposal addresses the need for development of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) for use in electrolytes for reversibly electroplating films with specific optical, emissive and electrical properties on demand. Target applications for these electrolytes are devices using reversible electroplating for tuning/regenerating functional surfaces, such as mirrors or thermal emitters, deployed on ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing Technique for Replacement of Complex Castings

    SBC: RENAISSANCE SERVICES            Topic: AF161010

    ABSTRACT: Support for legacy aircraft systems is critical to the warfighter. The Air Forces sustainment responsibilities encompass thousands of airframes and engines, representing some systems that have been out of production since the 1960s and 1970s. Among the most critical out-of-production components are those made from aluminum, steel, and magnesium castings. These castings are essential t ...

  10. Rapid reverse engineering and validation for Air Force applications

    SBC: Advratech            Topic: AF161012

    ABSTRACT: Advratech will work with the University of Dayton Research Institute and Lockheed Martin Corp. to develop a novel reverse engineering process for the Air Force sustainment Center. The key technologies include 3D scanners (with 30 um accuracy), additive manufacturing (AM) software with automatic support structure development, a selective laser melting (SLM) testbed, a subtractive microma ...
