  1. Sensor Durability Validation for Turbine Engine Blade Health Measurement


    ABSTRACT: Many turbomachinery applications have achieved improved availability, reliability and cost savings by incorporating health monitoring systems to determine the mechanical condition of key components in near real time. The goals of any health monitoring system are to ensure reliability by avoiding unplanned maintenance, to reduce operating costs by providing the information needed to plan ...

  2. High-Efficient Liquid Desiccant and Chloride Removal for Corrosion Mitigation and Control

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: AF131203

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force spends $4.5 billion annually on aircraft maintenance related to corrosion.The source of this corrosion frequently is airborne chlorides that settle on metal parts and sensitive avionics and then absorb moisture from the air to create an electrolyte that promotes galvanic corrosion.The proposed work will design, fabricate and test a Corrosion Mitigation System (CMS) that sup ...

  3. FLEET System for Global Velocimetry at High Repetition Rates in Nitrogen-Based Hypersonic Ground Test Facilities.

    SBC: Plasma TEC            Topic: AF141229

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the effort is the development of a Femtosecond Laser Electronic Excitation Tagging (FLEET) system and data analysis tools for the measurement of transport parameters in nitrogen and air ground test facilities without seeding the flow with either particles or with foreign gases. The effort follows Phase I accomplishments, wherein a transportable FLEET laser system with si ...

  6. Particulate Composite Mixing Processes

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT22

    ABSTRACT: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with Columbia University propose to develop a simulation tool for modeling mixing process of multi-particle composite systems and generating the ultimate microstructure. A combined theoretical, numerical, and experimental approach will be developed to create a high fidelity software product with a reduced order modeling capability for an ...

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

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...

  8. Simplified Aero Model Development and Validation Environment

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: AF161042

    ABSTRACT: Shortcomings, including high costs and lack of realism, associated with classical approaches in aircrew training have motivated the desire to develop a virtual aerial refueling training environment.Such an environment has the potential to provide a cost-effective, realistic environment to perform repetition training.A vital facet of such a training tool is the development of a realistic ...

  9. GEMINI: Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161045

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to build GEMINI (Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence), a shared workspace where humans and machines collaboratively assemble intelligence products. In a human-machine team, the collaborators have vastly different-- albeit complementary-- cognitive capabilities. Thus, a central research challenge is to expressively and soundly translate from analyst-centric interfaces (for ...

  10. SAVANT: Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161063

    SIFT, working with research partner Dr. Richard Linares, proposes to develop SAVANT a Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool. SAVANT will rapidly assess the vulnerability of blue space assets to potential ground and space-based threats, and provide a heightened awareness of the mission impact posed by these threats so that space commanders may make timely decisio ...
