  1. Real-Time Sensor Data Processing and Compression Performed On-board Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: AF131132

    ABSTRACT: The K-128 co-processor leverages insights from neuroscience to achieve superior performance. Unlike previous efforts along those lines, our approach is to create a software programmable co-processor that runs existing applications. One of the most salient characteristics of such a co-processor is its power efficiency: not just a few percent more efficient than a traditional processor, b ...

  2. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  6. Standard Test Method for Prepreg Resin Impregnation Level

    SBC: The Ultran Group            Topic: AF141165

    ABSTRACT: Carbon fiber reinforcements pre-impregnated with resin (prepregs) are growing as a base material for many aerospace products. As such, prepreg quality is ever important and a key quality metric is its level of impregnation (LOI). However, high tolerance of prepreg LOI is difficult for manufacturers to maintain and is further complicated as industry-wide standards do not exist for accura ...

  7. Standard Inline Non-destructive Determination of Prepreg Resin Impregnation Level

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF141165

    ABSTRACT: Incomplete and inconsistent impregnation of fiber beds in composite material manufacture jeopardizes the performance of multiple aircraft platforms and substantially increases acquisition and sustainment costs for the Air Force. Current test methodologies are inadequate to address this problem as they cannot be conducted during manufacture, exhibit poor accuracy and repeatability, and ...

  8. High Accuracy, Turnkey, Minimum Hot Surface Ignition Test Apparatus

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141222

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop and demonstrate a test apparatus for determining the minimum hot surface ignition (HSI) temperature of flammable liquids. Flammable liquids leaking onto hot surfaces, such as those in an aircraft engine bay, present fire hazards. To properly assess and mitigate these hazards, an in depth knowledge of th ...

  9. Aerodynamic Analysis of Deployed Bay Doors on Modern High-Speed Aircraft


    ABSTRACT: The need for evaluation of aerodynamic loads on internal weapons bay doors comes from the US Air Force's requirement to open doors on many of its aircraft during flight. This ranges from an aircraft's low-speed opening of landing gear doors and speed brakes to opening weapons bay doors in supersonic flight. This sets up a situation for unsteady aerodynamic loading of these surfaces due ...
