  1. Low Complexity Adaptive Algorithms for Airborne ECCM

    SBC: Adaptronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent research has shown that effective jammer and clutter suppression is best performed with fully space-time adaptive processing. However, allowing adaptive weights on every tap on every element is computationally prohibitive and requires too many samples to converge. Eigenvalue analysis shows that the required number of degrees of freedom (DOF) is significantly less than the dimensionality of ...

  2. Novel Recycling Process for Aircraft Transparencies

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for reclaiming scrap aircraft transparency materials. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200 C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Met ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF FREE FIELD TIME OF ARRIVAL (TOA) GAGES FOR LOW OVERPRESSURE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    STANDARD TOADS CRYSTALS DO NOT PERFORM CONSISTENTLY AT LOW OVERPRESSURES DUE IN PART TO LOW SIGNAL OUTPUT OF THE PZT CRYSTAL AND ALSO DUE TO ELECTRICAL CROSSTALK. WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE TWO TOA TRANSDUCER TYPES THAT ARE PROVEN CONCEPTS IN OTHER APPLICATIONS. WE WILL DESIGN TECHNICIAN FRIENDLY INTERFACES FOR THESE MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS. THE PHASE I DESIGN WILL INTERFACE WITH STANDARD TOADS III REC ...

  6. PARAMETRIC ANALYSIS OF EXPLOSIVE EFFECTIVENESS

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR THE EVALUATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF EXPLOSIVE MATERIAL CHARACTERIZATION IS PROPOSED. DAMAGE OF A RIGID RUNWAY CONCRETE SLAB WILL BE OPTIMIZED FOR VARIOUS EXPLOSIVE ENERGY RELEASE RATES. THE STEPS FOR THE PROGRAM ARE: 1) COLLECTION AND EVALUATION OF RUNWAY TEST DAMAGE RESULTS, 2) PRELIMINARY LITERATURE SEARCH FOR APPROPRIATE HYPERGOLIC ENERGY RELEASE RATE, 3) NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF EXP ...

  7. Automated Fragment Recovery and Quick Look Reporting for Warhead Arena Testing

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new automated methodology for collecting, analyzing, and reporting fragment data from warhead arena tests is proposed. While the Air Force has digitally recorded average fragment velocity data using electronic velocity screens since 1971, fragment mass distributions are still determined using a time consuming and labor intensive process of manually locating, cleaning, and weighing fragments. In ...

  8. Implementation of Exaggerated Actuation and Bearing-Free Rotational Mobility in Smart Hinges

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Under the proposed research a single degree-of-freedom hinge will be developed that exaggerates actuation by either a piezoceramic or a shape-memory alloy. The proposed hinge is a marriage of two concepts, one providing exaggerated excitation and the other providing bearing-free rotational mobility. The first concept translates the relatively small motion achievable with smart materials (shape-m ...

  9. Optimal Decision Analysis Tool for Selecting Life Extension Options

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ARA along with its team member Ryan International Airlines proposes to develop an innovative stochastic decision tool for selecting among the various life extensions options for aging aircraft. The methodology is based on a genetic algorithm search that can efficiently choose among various alternatives. The search algorithm retrieves input from a relational database designed to store and manage ...

  10. ProFEA: A General Purpose Graphically-Based Probabilistic Finite Element Analysis System

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR will develop a general purpose probabilistic finite element analysis system, ProFEA, that allows designers to perform probabilistic finite element analysis in a graphical environment that is completely familiar and similar to modern deterministic FEA. We have developed an innovative architecture that takes advantage of emerging file exchange and database standards (I ...
