  1. A Unified System-of-Systems Design and Analysis Toolset for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N19BT025

    Modern and next generation military aircraft face increasing challenges as thermal demands grow while available heat sinks reduce. Legacy platforms upgraded with advanced electrical systems are also encountering similar thermal constraints. Modeling and simulation (M&S) tools provide a cost-effective solution to the design, analysis, and optimization of growing thermal management challenges, but t ...

  2. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: H. F. Webster Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    There are two main objectives that this proposal addresses. The first is to develop an oil additive that reduces friction and is thermally conductive and designed to increase engine efficiency and equipment lifecycles.This will be obtained through further material production and testing.Once the desired thermal conductivity and friction coefficient is achieved, the oil additive will be tested at S ...

  3. Sample Preparation Free Consumables for Ultra-Sensitive Chemical and Biological Detection from Complex Environmental and Clinical Matrices Compatible for Paper Spray Ionization Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Prosolia, Inc.            Topic: A18BT020

    Paper Spray mass spectrometry (PSMS) has been developed and commercialized for analysis of fluid samples by mass spectrometry. PSMS provides advantages over existing analysis techniques by reducing sample preparation needs and incorporating the sample storage and sample introduction to a single consumable device that is disposed after analysis, thus eliminating cross contamination and/or cleaning ...

  4. High-Fidelity Ultrasonic Measurement, Computational Design and Manufacturing of Optimized Carbon/Carbon (C/C) Porous Aeroshell for Hypersonic Transiti

    SBC: HySonic Technologies, LLC            Topic: N191043

    The objective of Phase I is to design, fabricate, characterize, and test ultrasonically absorptive aeroshell materials that successfully damp the second (Mack) mode instability to delay boundary layer transition (BLT) on hypersonic boost-glide weapons during the pull-up and glide phases. HySonic Technologies, LLC will experimentally and numerically assess the complex acoustic absorption coefficien ...

  5. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need (RAPID)

    SBC: Trek10 Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Legacy Air Force IT systems behind the Operational Training Infrastructure (OTI) are inhibiting warfighter readiness due to lack of interoperability and flexibility, high costs, and need for manual processes. Next generation cloud computing that focuses on cloud-native, serverless designs will enable the Air Force to embrace agility, security, scalability, and lower costs to modernize the OTI.Trek ...

  6. Secure Cockpit-to-Ground Wireless Data Transfer

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: AF183013

    This project will develop a Millimeterwave, low-power transceiver for secure, high-speed wireless data transfer between an aircraft cockpit and a ground terminal. The wireless transceiver will replace a cumbersome, unreliable data cable that is currently used for cockpit-to-ground communications. The transciver will be small enough to plug directly into the ports of the cockpit computer and ground ...

  7. Lightweight Replacement for AM-2 Runway Matting

    SBC: INDIANA TOOL & MFG. CO., INC.            Topic: AF183015

    This project seeks to develop a PXCM (Phase Transforming Cellular Matrix) based runway matting that serves as a superior alternative to AM-2 matting.The results will demonstrate the feasibility of PXCM based matting technology weighing 3.5 lb/sq ft or lessis capable of being laid by hand over a level surface compacted to CBR 50, of containing debris and support flight operations for 5,000 landing- ...

  8. Novel Engine Cycles for Upper Stage Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF182060

    The performance of upper stage rocket systems that employ deflagration combustion processes has peaked with systems exceeding 98% efficiency.Rotating detonation engine technology offers the potential to improve performance of these systems via combustion of the propellants at higher pressures attained by exposure to a detonation wave traversing the annular combustor at speeds in excess of 2000 m/s ...

  9. An Alternate Corrosion Resistant Coating to be Applied to Magnesium Secondary Power System Parts

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF183018

    Secondary Power Systems (SPS) are highly complex, expensive, and mission-critical components.The current corrosion-resistant coating system fails to adequately protect magnesium SPS components from harsh environments and cannot survive the overhaul process (i.e. aggressive cleaning chemicals and media blasting for paint removal).As a result, SPS parts suffer severe corrosion damage and require exp ...

  10. Advanced Materials and Coatings for Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Propulsion

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF182059

    Adiabatics, Inc. has developed a new class of thermal barrier coating (TBC) based on cylinder wall temperature swing effect currently being researched by major engine manufacturers.This class of ceramicbased TBC has the highest temperature wall swing capability based on its extremely low density (0.45g/cm3), low specific heat capacity (500 KJ/m3-K) and low thermal conductivity (0.28W/m-K).Due to t ...
