  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Advanced Solar Cell Metallization

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF171070

    We propose a resilient silver flake based metallization technology directly printable onto multijunction solar cells. The metallization will be loaded with carbon nanotubes to improve crack resilience. We will demonstrate that we can maintain connectivity (< 5% performance degradation) of a printed front-side metal layer across a gap up to 30 microns. In Phase I, we demonstrated metal line resisti ...

  5. Advanced Coating Evaluation Metrics

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF161113

    The cost of corrosion for Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to be $5.7 billion per the 2018 LMI Cost of Corrosion report. The first line of defense and single most important factor in controlling structural corrosion of aircraft is the protective coating system.Advance coating performance test systems have been developed that measure the failure modes of greatest concern for aircraft st ...

  6. ANALYSIS OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS TO SUPPORT BIOFEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS

    SBC: Transform Index Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE A SOFTWARE SYSTEM THAT MAKES CORRELATIONAL/FACTOR TYPE ANALYSES OF LARGE DATA BASES PRACTICAL ON MICROCOMPUTER-CLASS MACHINES, AND IS ABLE TO COMPUTE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS AT A SPEED THAT MAKES REAL-TIME FEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS POSSIBLE. THE SOFTWARE PROTOTYPE DEVELOPED WILL ACCESS A DATA BASE COMPOSED OF A W ...

  7. Applications Using New Satellite Communications Constellations

    SBC: AVL TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF172009

    This proposal outlines the development of an Active Electronically Steered Antenna (AESA) for use on airborne platforms as an integrated communications terminal. The hardware produced in this effort is intended to support the Global Network Access Terminal (GNAT) whereby the AESA terminal will support connectivity through Ka band commercial SATCOM providers such that it operates as a modem kit and ...

  8. Atlas Fulcrum

    SBC: SECOND FRONT SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF183005

    The non-traditional technology market and dual-use ecosystem produce thousands of technologies and companies each year. Funded and developed by private capital, these technologies have significant application in the militarybut only if military users can find and assess them. To effectively bring these technologies to bear on military missions, users need to accomplish five key activities: 1. Sour ...

  10. COMPUTATION OF AERODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS AND NONLINEAR STABILITY DERIVATIVES OF A FIGHTER/ATTACK AIRCRAFT AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK

    SBC: VIGYAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN TACTICAL AIRCRAFT FLYING AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK ENCOUNTER VISCOUS SEPARATION, VORTEX FLOWS, VORTEX BREAKDOWN, UNSTEADY FLOW SITUATIONS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON THE LIFTING SURFACES DOWNSTREAM. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ANALYZE THESE FLOWS IN ORDER TO PREDICT THE STABILITY DERIVATIVES ACCURATELY AND ALSO IT IS HIGHLY DESIRABLE THAT IN THE METHODS PREDICTING THE STABILITY DERIVATIVE OF THESE AIRC ...
