  1. Automated Sanding of Aircraft Coatings

    SBC: Aerobotix, Inc            Topic: AF071112

    Current survivability and engineering requirements for airframe platforms necessitate the automated application of numerous specialty coatings onto critical surfaces. One such critical surface is an airframes inlet duct OML surface. These specialty coatings have tight specification tolerances for the final thicknesses and surface finish. Sanding is required to meet the final thickness and surfa ...

  2. Head Alignment and Orientation (HALO) System

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF071020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost head tracking system to monitor the orientations of an individual’s head. This head tracker can be incorporated with a 3-D audio system that will provide cues to operators for increasing situational awareness. This proposed system will be based on Archangel’s Inertial Measurement Unit ‘IM3’. The Head Alignment and Orientation (HALO) ...

  5. Development Novel High-Performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD06PR3

    CFDRC proposes to develop some novel high performance solid propellant that will meet the requirement of Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology (IHPRPT) Phase III goals. The propellants will enhance the performance of space access vehicles, strategic, tactical and missile defense systems. A number of triazole, tetrazole, and tetrazines based solid energetic ionic salts have been prop ...

  6. An Advanced Modeling Tool for Prediction and Alleviation of Turbopump Cavitation Instabilities

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF071204

    We propose to develop an advanced modeling tool to predict and to alleviate cavitation related turbopump instabilities. An existing “full cavitation model” developed by the proposing team and used in commercial CFD codes will be used as the starting point. The model will be improved by: a) introducing Eulerian-Lagrangian coupling for bubble dynamics; b) introducing a multi-scale model to st ...

  7. Model Independent First Principle Method for Prediction of Heat of Condensation/Sublimation of Solid Propellant

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD06PR5

    Prediction of accurate heats of formation of solid propellant has tremendous implication in theoretically evaluating the performance of new generation solid propellants. While state-of-the-art quantum mechanical methods can accurately calculate the heat of formation in the gas phase, heat of condensation (HC) is required to convert this gas phase quantity to solid phase. To our knowledge, all ex ...

  9. Probabilistic Methodology for Establishing Test Requirements in a Gas Turbine System Development and Demonstration Program

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06172

    There is a pressing need in the gas turbine community for advanced simulation-based methodologies that can reduce test requirements for gas turbine component/engine qualification. Currently, no such simulation methodology exists that is statistically accurate and employs high-fidelity simulations to reduce hardware testing. In this SBIR, CFDRC will develop such a simulation-based methodology. In P ...

  10. An Integrated Modeling Framework for Predictive Airman Performance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06038

    We believe that the future of human body testing in military and civilian applications is in using a new generation of “dummies” – “virtual humans”. This project will develop an integrated 3D Java framework for a user interactive Virtual Body framework, which can serve as a Virtual Body for anthropometry/anatomy based generation of human body models for biomechanics, physiology, and inju ...
