  1. Advanced Pressure Sensitive Adhesive for Low Observable Outer Mold Line Repair (1001-604)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF093114

    In this Phase II program Triton Systems will develop and optimize a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) system to meet the Air Force requirements for adhesion in the 2 8 pli range across a temperature range of -65degreesF to +250degreesF. In addition the PSA will be resistant to a variety of aircraft fluids including JP-8, oils, and de-icing fluids. Production of the PSA will be scaled-up to be p ...

  2. Video Analysis Using Perceptual Organization and Machine Learning

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF05309

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop, demonstrate, and implement at EAFB the EVASE:"Extensible Video Analysis of Symbology Events"Matlab toolkit. This system is based on the premise that it will learn symbology events during training by an expert operator, and then autonomously detect this symbology in long video sequences, resulting in a list of key events to assist the operator in f ...

  4. Multi-Physics, Multi-Functional Nano-Engineered Composites for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: AF08BT23

    ABSTRACT: Composite materials are increasingly adopted into Aerospace application due to their superior specific strength/stiffness, resistance to fatigue and ability to reduce part-count. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that by introducing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), multi-functional capabilities can be achieved by virtue of their high conductivity and piezoresistive nature. During the prop ...

  6. Thin, Flexible, Quantum-Structured Solar Cells

    SBC: Magnolia Solar Inc.            Topic: AF093080

    ABSTRACT: The epitaxial liftoff of multi-junction structures provides a means to build photovoltaic devices that are flexible, light weight, and highly efficient. However, current approaches to increasing the AM0 efficiency of multi-junction structures are reaching practical limitations due to the complexity of the device design. The objective of this Phase II SBIR program is to develop innovat ...

  7. Precision Microvalve for Green Propellants

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF083116

    ABSTRACT: Busek proposes to develop a flight-prototype piezo microvalve useful for micro chemical thrusters that require precisely metered flow rates. Deriving from a flight-qualified Busek microvalve and a successful proof-of-concept Phase I laboratory prototype, this proposed valve will be small, lightweight, and ready for flight qualification. It can linearly actuate thrust up to the 100 mN d ...

  8. Structurally Reinforced Omni-Functional Near Net Geometry Windows

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: AF093115

    RF signature requirements for modern aircraft are driving the need for conformal window for future sensor systems. However, limitations on optical systems and physical properties of optically transparent materials currently limit the geometry of current windows and window assemblies. Novel material systems developed by Surmet combine different materials (e.g. ductile metal etc) into structures tha ...

  9. Software Protection to Fight through an Attack

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: OSD09IA3

    This project proposes the research and development of an adaptive co-execution based hardware-assisted software-protection system. In this system, critical software components and data are moved in and out-of-band depending on whether an attack is ongoing or not and its severity. This adaptivity is controlled by a sophisticated and unique threat modeling and detection system, as well as, novel eva ...

  10. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants for Condensed Phases

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT19

    ABSTRACT: A core component of aerospace manufacturing is based on cutting-edge technological applications of material design. Chemical kinetics models are vital for interpreting experimental measurements and predicting the behavior of these complex systems. Modern computational chemistry software programs are invaluable for the accurate prediction of reaction rates for kinetics models, but thei ...
