  1. Concept-based Information Retrieval and Fusion Engine

    SBC: IXMATCH, INC.            Topic: OSD03030

    Existing search technology is inadequate for addressing the information retrieval requirements of today's complex tasks that require the integration of information from multiple and heterogeneous sources, the discovery of arbitrary and non-obvious relations between the documents, and the uncovering of information that is intentionally trying to hide. The goal of this project is to advance the stat ...

  2. Rocket Technology Based Thermal Barrier Coatings for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: AF05298

    The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to decisively demonstrate the feasibility of using thermal barrier coatings (TBC) for hypersonic wind tunnel nozzle applications. The primary technical issue that needs to be resolved is the development of a prototype wind tunnel nozzle that is water cooled and utilizes vacuum plasma sprayed TBCs for long life and high pressure nozzle performance. ...

  4. Variable Electrochromic Devices (VEDs) for Space Simulation Testing

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF05299

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has fabricated two electrochromic (EC) devices during a Phase I SBIR program. Several EC infrared reflectors were fabricated using electroactive polymers and a series of EC infrared beam combiners were constructed using tungsten oxide (WO3) thin films. These devices switched between states in as little as 1 second with contrasts of up to 60% reflection. A proposed Phas ...

  5. Reduction of Dynamic Response of a Wind Tunnel Sting Mount Using Passive Damping

    SBC: SDI Engineering Inc            Topic: AF05297

    The Phase I research has established the feasibility of achieving substantial reductions in the dynamic response of wind tunnel sting mounts using passive damping techniques. Of the three principal passive damping concepts evaluated, the Hub Damper Unit (HDU) concept was determined to be the most suitable, and further development of this is planned in the Phase II research program. The primary s ...

  6. A Variable-fidelity Simulation Tool for Dynamic Non-linear Fluid/Structure Interaction Problems

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF06T016

    Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with the Smart Structures Laboratory of the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland (UMD), propose to develop a high-fidelity fluid-structure interaction model that is uniquely suited to morphing wing aeroelastic and response prediction. We propose to produce a flapping wing fluid-structure interaction (FWFSI) analysis method to ...

  9. Heterodyne Correlation Random Noise Radar for Through Wall and Building Interior Imaging

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF06T024

    Recent terrorist activities and law-enforcement situations involving hostage situations underscore the need for effective through-the-wall surveillance (TWS). Current building interior imaging systems are based on short-pulse waveforms, which are easily recognizable by the intelligent adversary who may employ countermeasures to confound detection. We propose a coherent continuous-wave ultrawideban ...
