  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ESTAT Actuation Inc            Topic: AF19BT001

    Designing actuation hardware for autonomous systems is challenging due to the high weight and power consumption of conventional actuators and clutches. Compared to existing clutch technologies, the electroadhesive clutches produced by ESTAT have exceptional holding force as a ratio of both mass and power consumption. They weigh 10x less and consumes 1000x less power than other clutching technologi ...

  3. Data/Model Fusion for Missile Signature Modeling

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF191035

    Threat signature phenomenology plays an increasingly important role in the development of a wide variety of missile warning technologies, both at the tactical and strategic levels. As a case in example, the radiometric signature of threat surface to air missiles (SAM) must be known throughout the missile flight envelope at aspect angle orientations representing probable engagement scenarios in ord ...

  4. Data/Model Fusion for Missile Signature Modeling

    SBC: PROPULSION SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY INCORPORATED            Topic: AF191035

    This Phase I SBIR proposal describes the development of enhancements to a data/model fusion approach for threat missile signatures called model extrapolation (MODEX).MODEX compares plume signature predictions and sensor measurements using innovative data selection and weighting techniques to derive extrapolation factors, which anchor the predictions to the data.These factors are then used at off-m ...

  5. Integrated Constant Speed Drive Input Shaft Monitor

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF172004

    A small, rugged electronics and sensor package will be developed that will be installed within the housing of the Constant Speed Drive (CSD). The Variable Reluctance sensor that is used will monitor the tooth-passing speed of an existing input shaft gear. The micro-controller within the electronics package will count the revolutions and correlate the revolutions with statistics such as input shaft ...

  8. Missile Plume Analysis and Modeling for Generation of Missile Profiles Used in Missile Warning

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF183028

    Threat signature phenomenology plays an increasingly important role in the development of a wide variety of missile warning technologies, both at the tactical and strategic levels. There has been a recent proliferation of the number of missiles developed that use trajectory-shaping maneuvers as a method of range and flight profile control. This trend is also driven by the desire for advanced opera ...
