  1. Mitigation of Supersonic Aircraft Pod Aero-Optics

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF103001

    A technical plan is proposed for developing a supersonic pod-based application of virtual duct passive flow control for aero-optic mitigation. Virtual ducts have proven to be a highly effective tool for achieving aero-optic mitigation transonic flight up to Mach 0.8, and the proposed work seeks to leverage our extensive experience in designing and testing transonic virtual ducts to develop a unifi ...

  2. Fast Synthetic Scene Generation for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF071010

    Large populations of interacting agents or swarms, are common throughout nature and society and, increasingly, in mechanical and electronic domains. Although the individual agents in such systems are governed by local rules, their collective behavior is often well-orchestrated to solve complex tasks, whether fighting disease, navigating through space to find resources, or to manage social interact ...

  5. Optical Cryocooling for Precision Metrology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    Optical cryocoolers, which are compact and produce no vibrations, are ideal for many electronics and sensor applications. In particular, some advanced metrology systems require cooling to around 124 K, the temperature at which the coefficient of thermal expansion for crystalline silicon goes through a null point. Currently, the dominant solid-state cooling technology is thermoelectric cooling, whi ...
