  1. Enhanced Detection of Hidden Targets Using Multi-Discriminant Ladar

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: AF071156

    The objective of this work is to develop ATR algorithms that use the spectropolarimetric information in multi-discriminant ladar images to segment, detect and identify hidden targets. Hidden targets using camouflage, concealment and deception are difficult to detect with standard weapons sensors including basic ladar systems. A multi-discriminant ladar having polarized, multi-spectral, and multi ...

  2. Efficient shaping or reshaping of complex 3D parts using engineered residual stress

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: AF141170

    ABSTRACT: Increasing emphasis on affordability of military systems has led to a number of advances in airframe production. For example, high speed machining (HSM) has made it possible to fabricate thin structures that provide improved performance. However, near-surface plastic strains induced by HSM or surface treatments can lead to excessive component distortion such that the component requires ...

  3. Image Quality Indicator(s) and Software for Computed Radiography (CR)

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF131191

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I project will be a feasibility study to develop a standard method, new image quality indicators (IQI"s) and software algorithms to automatically verify computed radiography (CR) image quality for nondestructive testing (NDT) of military airframes. Compared to existing IQI"s, the new IQI"s will more comprehensively measure the image quality by measuring more aspects with one ...

  4. Multimodal-Multidimensional image fusion for morphological and functional evaluation of the retina

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF141028

    ABSTRACT: This project will deliver software that integrates information from repeated experiments, disparate imaging and functional sensing to study the physiological response of ocular tissue to laser damage. Imaging and functional testing modalities include the fundus camera, scanning laser ophthalmoscope, optical coherence tomography, hyperspectral, speckle and fluorescence. Physiological a ...

  5. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  9. Prediction of Store Trajectory Response to Unsteady Aerodynamic Loads

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF073086

    We are proposing an approach to the use of CFD that will include the determination of large scale unsteadiness in the flow over the weapons bay. The effects of release of the weapon, the unsteady aerodynamic forces on a given weapon as it leaves the bay and its continued descent will be determined. Metrics for both the large scale unsteadiness associated with flow over the bay, as well as metric ...

  10. Verification of Cold Working and Interference Levels at Fastener Holes

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF081088

    The USAF recognizes that benefits to cold working fastener holes include significantly increased life of a structure subjected to fatigue loading. However, full realization of this potential from a maintenance and engineering standpoint is hindered by the fact that there is currently no adequate field technique for determining how well the material structure immediately surrounding the hole has re ...
