  1. Structure from Motion

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF04170

    The Real-Time Structure From Motion (RTSFM) system combines state-of-the-art techniques and novel methods to compute 3D models of battlefields in real time from calibrated image sequences. Unlike most computational stereo approaches, the work is tailored for long sequences of calibrated imagery under near-planar small-baseline motion – sequences typically generated from loitering unmanned aeria ...

  2. Expert Intelligent Match of Requirements and Solutions

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF04087

    ExPERT is an intelligent search engine that unifies neurosymbolic computing with advanced natural language processing techniques derived from ontological semantics. The primary operational goal for ExPERT is for use in determing whether a proposed solution matches identified Air Force needs in order to amplify the effectiveness of an analyst and maximize his time. However, ExPERT can be used to ...

  3. Repair of HighTemperature RAM Coatings

    SBC: WELLS SIGNATURE PRODUCTS LLC            Topic: AF03116

    A high-temperature composite material and application method have been developed to rapidly repair hot zone LO coatings. The composite material includes RAM filler that has been encapsulated with a durable, oxidation resistant coating. The filler is contained in a silicon oxy-carbide matrix that is rapidly cured, adherent and capable of withstanding thermal and mechanical shock. The matrix repres ...

  4. Waste Disposal/Management System for Low Observable (LO) Composite Materials

    SBC: WELLS SIGNATURE PRODUCTS LLC            Topic: AF04136

    A mobile thermochemical processing system is proposed to recycle LO-containing materials to merchant products that cannot be “reverse engineered” to their LO composition or structure- essentially, “thermochemical encryption.” Additionally, the system will include extraction and/or conversion processes that remove hazardous characteristics, qualifying the output for beneficial reuse. As a c ...

  5. Advanced Wear Coating Systems for Landing Gear

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04268

    Landing Gear components (LG) are protected from in-service wear by application of hard Chromium (Cr). The porosity and columnar structure of the currently utilized galvanic Cr coatings allow corrosive media to penetrate through dramatically decreasing the life span of the component. For the non-line-of-site LG surfaces electrodeposited Cr is being replaced by the HVOF–applied compositions of WC ...

  6. Advanced Sacrificial Dense Metallic Coatings for Aircraft Components

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04270

    Majority of Aircraft Components (AC) is protected from corrosion by application of galvanic Cadmium (Cd). In some instances, mostly for the non-line-of-site configurations, Cd is replaced by Aluminum (Al) which is applied by Ion Vapor Deposition (IVD). The porosity and columnar structure of the currently utilized IVD coatings require additional treatment of AC that increases the cost to produce th ...

  7. Advanced Coating Systems for Aircraft Brake Pressure Plates

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF04271

    Carbon fiber-based brakes are made out of so-called carbon-carbon composite material (CC) that consists of two components: weaved carbon cloth and solid carbon matrix. The limitations of oxidation protection systems for CC, especially in long duration, cyclic and/or reusable applications, have made an impact on continuous use of CC materials for aircraft brakes. During the exploitation they are ex ...

  8. Environmentally Friendly Luciferase-based Illumination Technology

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF04145

    Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to utilizing bioluminescent materials that can be lighter and do not leave behind non-biodegradable debris. ...

  9. Measurement of Angular Valve Displacement in High Vibration Environments

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF04291

    During the Phase 1 effort Streamline Automation demonstrated that the use of a bushing assembly, when paired with the appropriate flexible shaft coupling, could significantly reduce the loads on the shaft of Angular Displacement Transducers (ADTs). These ADTs are currently used as position indicators for quarter turn valves in the ASTF at AEDC. The ADTs are subjected to high vibrational loads du ...

  10. Development of a Unified Stochastic-Hydrodynamic Simulation EnviRonment (USHER) for Biological Agent Neutralization and Defeat

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF04175

    The overall objective of this effort is to design, develop and demonstrate an integrated “Virtual Numerical Laboratory” for evaluation of biological agent defeat strategies. The simulation framework will integrate a novel, stochastic description of agent-neutralizer interactions/distribution with an incompressible CFD code with advanced turbulence, moving body and free surface models. In Phas ...
