  3. Thermally Efficient Emitter Technology for Advanced Scene/Simulation Capability in Hardware in the Loop Testing

    SBC: ROBERT A. RICHWINE, LLC            Topic: MDA15014

    We introduce a concept and a design for a high-speed, high-temperature infrared scene projector for midwave (MWIR) and longwave infrared (LWIR) application. Results from study of carbon nanotube (CNT) material characteristics, along with field emission and electro-thermal modeling show that higheffective MWIR temperatures can be sustained and projected by a CNT pixel with little or no spillover to ...

  5. Pocket-sized Surface Flotation Device for Cold Water Aviation Survival

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N162096

    The Navy requires a life raft that is small enough to fit within a front pocket on the body-worn survival ensemble. Having a pocket-sized raft at hand helps facilitate successful egress, inflation, and boarding. The required 12 cubic inches of stowed volume is a significant challenge, considering that a typical one-person raft compacts to about 700 cubic inches under vacuum. Safe, Inc. (Safe) has ...

  6. Biometrics-at-a-distance

    SBC: VAWD APPLIED SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: SB121004

    VAWD is proud to submit this proposal to explore a new sensor development potentially capable of precise determination of Potential Threat Elements (PTE) identified by Polarimetric STTW radar systems. Current STTW radar has demonstrated the ability to detect persons through obstructions at operational relevant ranges. Although the systems have proven the ability to capture differentiating characte ...

  7. Additively Manufactured Inflatable Hulls- Improved Survivability- 20% Total Ownership Cost Reduction

    SBC: Response Technologies, LLC            Topic: DLA152001

    Seam failures of flexible inflatable hulls is the primary reason for failures of military RHIBS and CRCs.These failures are a result of the current manufacturing methods being used, and which have been in place for over fifty years.Whats more, the manufacturing methods and fragmented supply chain of these hulls result in very long and unreliable lead times.These shortcomings impact the survivabili ...

  8. Heterogeneous Porous Media for Thermal Transport Mitigation in Hypersonics

    SBC: S. D. MILLER AND ASSOCIATES P.L.L.C.            Topic: AF161005

    S. D. Miller and Associates (SDMA) developed Opacified Fibrous Insulation (OFI) to replace MultiLayer Insulation (MLI) on the Falcon hypersonic vehicles.In 2015, OFI demonstrated improved efficiency in Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (HIAD) TPS, and became part of the preferred HIAD TPS.In Phase I, SDMA demonstrated OFI production in continuous rolls in a 12-in. width using pilot pro ...

  9. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: Arizona Engineering Science LLC            Topic: AF161024

    A robust and computationally efficient "Versatile Transition Prediction Methodology" (VTPM) for hypersonic boundary layers is developed, verified and validated. VTPMis based on two approaches: (1) A frequency domain linearized Navier-Stokes solver (VTPM-FD), and (2) an adaptive mesh-refinement wave-packet tracking technique (VTPM-WPT). Both approaches build on the governing equations in their most ...

  10. Uniformed Aeroelastic ROM Realization Across Flight Parameter Space for Dynamic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161026

    The technical objective of the Phase II project is to develop the production-ready Dynamic Flight Simulation (DFS) system using the F-15 Saudi as a testbed and validate it with the F-15 Saudi flight test data. The key element in the DFS system is the Reduced-Order-Model (ROM)-based aeroelastic solver with an embedded aerodynamic forces database that is generated by a steady Navier-Stokes solver an ...
