  1. 3-D Imaging and Fluorescence for Quantification of Liquid and Vapor in Fuel Sprays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103196

    ABSTRACT: The performance of modern propulsion devices such as gas turbine main combustors and augmentors is largely dependent on fuel spray dynamics. Fuel sprays, usually involving a liquid jet emanating into a gaseous flow followed by subsequent breakup and atomization, are critically important to many performance metrics including thrust, efficiency, static stability, dynamic stability, obser ...

  2. 3DPT3D Periodic Table for Predicting Human Health Risks of Nanoparticles

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: AF103031

    ABSTRACT: NANOSAFE INC. proposes the development and demonstration of the nanoparticle 3DPT3D Periodic Table which is an advanced database and software modeling tool for predicting nanoparticle toxicity, bioavailability, persistence, biological fate/transport, and life cycle risks from 1) quantitative structural properties used to characterize nanoscale particles (e.g., chemical composition, size ...

  3. A Cognitive Analysis of Leveraging LADAR to Support Combat Identification

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: AF103042

    ABSTRACT: Imagery analysts must frequently identify targets in rapidly changing environments where mistakes can have tragic consequences. LADAR is an emerging sensor technology that provides a rich data source for human analysts in support of combat identification. However, the primary focus of prior research has been on developing LADAR as a technology without adequately considering how an ana ...

  4. A Cognitive Systems Approach to Supporting Air Force Intelligence Analysis

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: AF093031

    ABSTRACT: The insertion of WAAS into the Air Force GEOINT analyst's arsenal of resources represents an evolutionary advance in potential real-time and forensic analysis capabilities. With the broad coverage areas that WAAS provides, analysts will be able to monitor individuals, groups, and vehicles across space and time, allowing them to more accurately and effectively develop patterns of l ...

  5. A Framework for Robust Engineering of Large-Scale Distributed Real-Time Systems

    SBC: L&S COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF083047

    Our Phase I project addressed the challenge of creating a new paradigm for the development of software in which developers evaluate the performance of software architecture and design options early when it can have the greatest impact. Our vision moves software performance analysis from an isolated set of tools that require laborious manual transfer of information among design and analysis tools t ...

  6. A Heterogeneous Network Integration Approach for Tactical Networks

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: OSD10AN2

    The future airborne network will be capable of supporting diverse heterogeneous networks (subnets). The constellation of ISR, C2 and Targeting networks are example subnet technologies. However, these networks currently only provide their own mission specific implementations, operate at different frequency bands, use different waveforms, and provide limited autonomous switching and routing capabili ...

  7. A Hybrid Thermal Management System for Space Electro-Optical Payloads

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103072

    ABSTRACT: Advanced space-borne electro-optical payloads require cooling at temperatures of 10 to 20 K. Cooling loads for these detectors will range from 0.25 W to 1.0 W at the primary load site, with additional loads at higher temperatures. During this program, we propose to build and test a multistage hybrid cryocooler that is optimized for cooling at a primary load temperature of 10 to 20 K. ...

  8. A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: I

    "Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. This widespread nitrate contamination has led to significant environmental consequences. In particul ...

  9. A Modeling/Experimental Program for Nano-Energetic Particles

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF093190

    An engineering computational model is proposed to investigate ignition, combustion and performance of nano-energetic particles in a variety of oxidizing environments, including those found in rockets and air breathing propulsion devices. The computational model will include appropriate models for the bulk, oxide, and gas-phase, include phase changes in the oxide layer with subsequent changes in di ...

  10. A modified Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) for near-sun detection

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: AF103113

    ABSTRACT: Aerophysics has developed the Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) to provide proximity detection for spacecraft. The LSIS sensor is a small, bolt-on unit that meets many of the requirements for this solicitation: the LSIS is small, low-power, semi-autonomous, and two LSIS units could cover the entire sky. However, like all passive EO detectors, LSIS has limitations when trying to detect ...
