  1. A Field Deployable MDA Analyzer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF191028

    Trace level metals such as copper in aviation turbine fuel can significantly accelerate thermal instability of the fuel, leading to oxidation and production of detrimental insoluble deposits in the engine.The primary method of correcting the issue is through the addition of a metal deactivator additive (MDA) into the fuel.Because of its surface activity and adsorptive properties, MDA may be reduce ...

  2. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  3. ACOUSTO-OPTIC PROCESSOR FOR SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROCESSING OF SAR DATA IN REAL TIME REQUIRES HIGH SPEED COMPUTATION DEVICES CURRENTLY BEYOND THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF CONVENTIONAL METHODS. DESIRED PROCESSORS MUST ALSO BE SMALL, RUGGED AND LOW POWER TO BE DEPLOYED ON AIRCRAFT. OPTICAL TECHNIQUES CAN SATISFY THESE REQUIREMENTS WITH IMAGINATIVE ARCHITECTURES. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR REAL TIME SAR IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION THAT C ...

  4. Adaptive Digital Enabler of Personal assistance Technology (ADEPT)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF191021

    KBSI proposes to research, design, and demonstrate the Adaptive Digital Enabler of Personal assistance Technology (ADEPT). ADEPT is a Digital Personal Assistant (DPA) designed to enhance the effectiveness of ISR analysts by addressing their ingestion, analysis, and packaging needs. The proposed ADEPT capability will support automated data ingest and clean up, automated intelligent data fusion and ...

  5. ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES FOR USE IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF ALL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: 1) HOW GOOD ARE THE NUMERICAL ANSWERS OBTAINED IN A COMPUTATION? AND 2) HOW CAN THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWERS BE OBTAINED FOR A FIXED AND LIMITED COMPUTATIONAL EFFORT, BUDGET, OR COMPUTING CAPABILITY? IN GENERAL TERMS THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE 1) TO DETERMINE RELIABLE A-POSTERIORI ESTIMATES OF ERROR ...

  6. ADAPTIVE NULLING BY ELECTRICAL SURFACE CONTROL OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA

    SBC: COMPUTER SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO FORMING A NULL IN THE SECONDARY PATTERN OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA IS DEVELOPED BY THIS PROJECT. AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE REFLECTIVE SURFACE BEING DEVELOPED ON A NASA SBIR IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE WORK. THIS PROJECT EXTENDS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SURFACE SO THAT IT IS USEFUL AS A NULL FORMER. THE RESULT IS CONSIDERABLY REDUCED COST OF NULL STEERING ANTENNAS. THE DE ...

  8. Advanced Manufacturing and Assembly Approaches for Reduced Cost Small Satellite Constellations

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF191075

    The primary objective of this program is to fully transition a DDM approach for fabricating classes of satellites between 6U cubesats and ESPA.To accomplish this, highly integrated subcomponents with integrated functionality must support thermal, RF, data, power, radiation protection and structural will be mandatory.A fair fraction of a satellite can be made modular, and all features and functions ...

  9. Advanced Nano Composite Coating for Gear Applications

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182005

    The Air Force desires technologies demonstrating value and commercial success in non-defense applications which will solve current Air Force problems.Gears are central functioning parts to most mechanical systems such as engine transmissions.Fuel consumption and maintenance costs are significantly increased due to efficiency losses resulting from friction and wear of gears. The development of chem ...

  10. ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES UTILIZING A SOLID-STATE ELECTRONIC IMAGER

    SBC: General Imaging Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF MUNITIONS PRESENTS SPECIAL PROBLEMS THAT CANNOT BE SOLVED WITH CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES. AN ELECTRONIC X-RAY IMAGING SYSTEM WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ITS USE IN ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGING TECHNIQUES SUCH AS REMOTE ON-LINE INSPECTION, MULTISPECTRAL RADIOGRAPHY AND BACKSCATTER TOMOGRAPHY.
