  2. Innovative DMFC Power Supply for NDI Hand Tools


    ABSTRACT: The Air Force regularly uses eddy current and ultrasonic NDI equipment which can be configured with a wide range of battery chemistries. Many of these battery chemistries, which include toxic heavy metals, are detrimental to the environment and can be difficult and costly to dispose of. The Air Force is seeking a new power supply for applicable NDI equipment that reduces the environment ...

  3. Residual Stress Determination for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively determine of the cold work process has been applied to a hole, and if the results are within process specif ...

  7. Extended Range Forecasting and Advanced Climate Applications Decision Support System

    SBC: AgileSrc LLC            Topic: N142121

    To fully exploit the state of climate science, though, requires that we expand and improve ACAF capabilities to better meet the BonD strategy. This requires a more robust, scalable supporting framework that can easily add new data resources; transform these data into actionable information with uncertainty estimates in the operators and planners decision space; and distribute effectively the compu ...

  10. Exploiting Small Boat Wake Signatures for Improved Threat Classification and Feature Aided Tracking

    SBC: RDRTec Incorporated            Topic: N132104

    RDRTec Inc. propose to develop innovative methods to exploit wake signature attributes for the small boat threat classification and feature aided tracking by airborne radar systems. For small maneuvering vessels, the wake can dominate the hard body signature and the sea spikes and breaking waves induced false alarms can overload the fingerprinting and classification algorithms. This effort will se ...
