  1. 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 ...

  2. X-Ray Tomography

    SBC: RJ Matthews LLC            Topic: AF183021

    Aircraft fleets in the U.S. and around the world are aging. With this age, electronic components are wearing out and in need of replacement. Oftentimes OEMs for electrical components, and the printed circuit boards (PCBs) on which they are placed, no longer exist or have halted production on the parts that are now failing. In many cases, these are parts that have been reliable for decades and orig ...

  7. Development of Explosive Feedstock for Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) 3D Printers

    SBC: E&G Associates, Inc.            Topic: N171060

    Traditional manufacturing methods for producing warheads, propellants, and pyrotechnic systems are timely and costly. Additive manufacturing (AM) approaches offer one path of alternative manufacturing technologies. Among various technologies, powder bed fusion (PBF) is one promising approach. Hewlett Packards Multi-Jet Fusion printers utilize a unique PBF process that presents a desirable solution ...

  8. Pressure Gain Combustor

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: AF182064

    Pressure-gain combustion systems such as an RDE allow for increased thermodynamic efficiency. In a gas-generator or staged combustion system, an RDE would allow for reduced pump size, and an increase in efficiency. For the past decade GTL has been developing novel propulsion modeling methods and hardware. In this effort, the application of an RDE along with a novel complimentary alternative will b ...

  9. Physical-Cyber Vulnerability Identification

    SBC: METAMORPH INC            Topic: AF183003

    Differentiating from conventional cybersecurity approaches, the Physical-Cyber System penetration test, PCS-PenTest, evaluates physical side-channel attacks where RF energy is injected into the system and received on unintended antennas, transduced by accidental RF receivers, and causes abnormal system operation and/or state changes.Finding these vulnerabilities is challenging.Given that the poten ...

  10. Portable Ruggedized Energy Efficient Medical Sterilizer (PREEMS)

    SBC: Fort Defiance Industries, LLC            Topic: N182096

    Sterilization requirements in far-forward Roles 1 & 2 are challenging and not easily satisfied with currently available commercial devices. Steam-sterilant systems are hindered by excessive cube/weight, large power requirements, high water consumption and fragile unreliable designs. Non-steam options such as ozone and ethylene oxide have harmful residues, undesirable off-gassing, long cycle times, ...
