The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Spatially and Temporally Resolved Temperature and Species Concentration Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors using fs-CARS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073059

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to develop femtosecond (fs) laser-based coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy for providing quantitative high-speed (1-10 kHz) temperature and species concentration measurements in unsteady reacting flows. The initial frequency-spread dephasing rate of the Raman coherence induced by the ultrafast (~85 fs) Stokes and pump ...

  2. Picosecond-Laser-Based Fiber-Coupled Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) Spectroscopy System

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073134

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to perform temperature and species measurements in both H2-air and C2H4-air flames using a fiber-coupled picosecond CARS system. Single-mode and step-index multi-mode fibers will be investigated for the delivery of the picosecond lasers to pump the target species and also to collect the generated CARS signal. The key element of our propose ...

  3. Schlieren Based Seedless PIV for High Frequency Cavity Flow Control Applications in Large Scale Wind Tunnel Facilities

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071264

    Flow control using high-frequency actuation to reduce acoustic and vibrational loading from weapons bays and sensor apertures requires a diagnostic approach that can capture instantaneous flowfield data at rates of several kHz. Moreover, large wind tunnel facilities suffer the difficulty of particle seeding for techniques such as Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV). The opportunity addressed by t ...

  4. Investigation of Combustion Instability in Augmentors Using High-Speed PIV and PLIF

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071173

    The objective of this Phase-II effort is to build and deliver a high-speed laser system for performing particle-image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) of OH at rates of 5 to 10 kHz in augmentor test facilities. This state-of-the-art laser system will allow velocity and 2-D flame radical measurements for understanding the complex spatio-temporal development of instab ...

  5. Sensing of Upper Atmosphere

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: AF06246

    Accurate observations and forecasts of meteorological conditions in the battlespace are of extreme importance to the most effective employment of military assets. In many instances, it is not possible to gather in-situ meteorological data by routine means such as sounding balloons carrying radiosondes. There is a need to provide a means by which such data may be gathered with the requisite accur ...

  6. Protective Coating for Large-Diameter Bearing Races

    SBC: ARCOMAC SURFACE ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF06088

    Critical large bearings in the F-35 thrust vector system must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat and corrosive attack from salt air and fluorinated lubricant at elevated temperatures. A unique patented Filtered Arc Plasma Source Ion Deposition (FAPSID) process developed by Arcomac Surface Engineering will deposit an atomically bonded, multiple layered, integrated coatin ...

  7. Zero VOC Coatings for Aircraft Grade Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF071110

    The Air Force is actively pursuing a reduction and eventual elimination of the volume of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions generated during aircraft coating operations. Resodyn Corporation proposes the development of the zero VOC (ZCOV) coating system that consists of thermally applied engineered thermoplastics. The enabling technology will be Resodyn Corporation’s Low Temperature Powd ...

  8. Corrosion Protection via Novel Hydrophobic Powder Coating

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF071324

    Resodyn Corporation proposes a super-hydrophobic coating solution mimicking the Lotus leaf effect for corrosion protection of US Air Force support equipment exposed to highly corrosive environment while residing in the Southwest Asia. It is expected that highly hydrophobic coatings will enhance corrosion protection of the equipment by improving moisture barrier properties and preventing corrosive ...

  9. Investigation of Combustion Instability in Augmentors Using High-Speed PIV and PLIF

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071173

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to assess the feasibility of performing high-speed (1-5 kHz) particle-image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) for understanding combustion stability and related phenomena in gas-turbine augmentors. Initial demonstration measurements will be performed in cold and heated air flows using PIV and acetone/biacetyl PL ...
