  1. Advanced OSHA Compliant Blast Cleaning Rooms (No Blast/HM Residue Migration Outside Blast Cleaning Room)

    SBC: Immediate Response Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131197

    ABSTRACT: Hexavalent Chromium and other Hazardous Materials (HM) that are prevalent in the Bead Blasting Profession pose a hazard to those directly working in the environment as well as those working around the environment. There is a two stage problem at hand with the USAF and in several other industries working with similar applications: the containment of the HM during operations and the con ...

  2. A Network Sensor-Based Defense Framework for Active Network Security Situation Awareness and Impact Mitigation


    ABSTRACT: Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, impact, and complexity, which demonstrate extensive vulnerabilities of networks with the potential for catastrophic damage. Defending against these cyber-attacks requires network security situation awareness (SA) through distributed collaborative monitoring, detection, and mitigation. In the Phase I project, IFT team has developed a Network Sen ...

  3. Laser Survivability Model


    ABSTRACT: The goal of this SBIR program is to develop a validated model that predicts ignition of composite aircraft fuel tanks when engaged by a High Energy Laser (HEL). The primary focus of the Phase I research and development program was to develop a baseline capability for modeling laser-initiated fire ignition and sustainment for composite aircraft fuel tanks. The SURVICE Engineering Compa ...

  4. AUTO-SCAN: Inlet and Exhaust Damage Registration Sensor

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF121C125

    ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting aircraft engine inlet and exhaust cavities are labor intensive and error prone. Airmen crawl into ducts looking for defects, trace suspected sites on Mylar sheets noting their position relative to cavity features, and manually enter the data into an aircraft assessment system. Technology that can reduce inspection times and eliminate sources of human err ...

  5. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air


    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  6. Composite Calibration Standards Kit for Calibration of Multiple Equipment in the AF Inventory Used for Composite Nondestructive Inspection (NDI)

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131193

    To meet the Air Force's need for composite calibration standards that could be used interchangeably for calibration of different type of NDE equipment used in the Air Force for composite NDE, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes an innovative methodology for developing composite NDE standards. The proposed approach builds on the success and expertise of XII in developments of standard meth ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Forecasting of Solar Eruptions using Statistical Mechanics, Ensemble, and Bayesian Forecasting Methods

    SBC: Heron Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141108

    Heron Systems proposes Solar Prediction via Deep Learning (SPINDLE), a human out-of-the-loop system to improve the state of solar flare forecasting using novel machine learning techniques. Currently, solar flare forecasting is either dependent on an expert, with their own subjective biases and intuitions, or automated methods using shallow representations extracted from magnetogram images, unable ...

  9. Simultaneous RF Beamforming Phased Array Sensors through Wafer Scale Photonic Integration

    SBC: Morton Photonics Incorporated            Topic: AF141184

    This SBIR program will take maximum advantage of CMOS foundry based silicon photonics integration and Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technologies developed for the telecom industry, to create wafer scale photonic integrated circuit (PIC) devices directly integrated with advanced phased array antennas, providing broad instantaneous bandwidth, multi-channel simultaneous beamforming capabilit ...

  10. Advanced Space Antenna for GPS

    SBC: Syntonics LLC            Topic: AF141243

    The Air Force wishes to develop a capability to focus GPS broadcasts on a specific area of interest, steer to maintain the beam on that area, and provide a minimum of 5 dB higher signal strength. The current fixed beam hemispherical broadcast approach has no way to increase the GPS signal power to a specific area of interest. Syntonics has developed a low cost beam steering solution for its transp ...
