  1. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...

  2. Advanced MRO Multi-Echelon Planning and Scheduling

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06330

    The objective of this proposal is to identify and integrate multi-echelon constraints in Manufacturing Repair Overhaul (MRO) process planning and scheduling. The OC-ALC depot operates in a multi-echelon MRO environment that is highly constrained regarding its capacities, resources, deadlines, and other physical limitations. The representation, capture, satisfaction and relaxation of these constra ...

  3. Dielectric Measuring Tool for Radome Checkout

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06327

    The main goal of this work is to develop a more reliable, robust, and accurate measurements of radome transmission properties. As a result, we propose a pilot study in order to design a two-horn testing system and provide several prototype radome testing measurements. The proposed two-horn testing system will be mainly focused on transmission efficiency mechanism. The proposed system features a ...

  4. Pattern Recognition for Aircraft Maintainer Troubleshooting

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF05263

    Due to the significant decrease of aircraft parts across the U.S. military over past years, managing parts more efficiently has become a great necessity. The term managing suggests having the data resources available to predict, forecast events or determine an item’s use such as the mission capability of a part or weapon system. The decrease of parts can be attributed to many factors, some of w ...

  5. Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) Performance Prediction Model

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF06258

    A methodology is proposed to provide intelligence to more classical global optimization schemes. By incorporating these methods, design engineers will be able to not only identify and resolve difficulties within an antenna element, but will be able to synthesis and optimize an entire array, including the antenna elements, feed structures, array position and shape, element location and orientation ...

  6. Energy Harvesting (EH) for Small Air Vehicles

    SBC: Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC            Topic: AF071258

    Technological advances in energy harvesting (EH) offer significant benefits to powering micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) by extending mission length and range. Currently, batteries limit the range and mission time of MAVs since the batteries contain a finite supply of energy. The proposed research is unique in that it considers the use of multiple EH sources along with both batteries and supercapacit ...

  7. Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Structures for Vanes and Exhaust Nozzle Components

    SBC: EVISIVE LLC            Topic: AF071105

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of the application of a patented microwave scanning device as an NDE technique to be used in streamlining and optimizing the Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) manufacturing process. The scanning process (U.S. Patent numbers 6,359,446 and 6,653,847) utilizes microwaves as an interrogating beam to penetrate a dielectric material. This m ...

  9. Aircraft Battle Damage Assessment Tool, (Aircraft Battle Damage Repair (ABDR))

    SBC: OPEN SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF05257

    Many of the engineering tasks necessary for adequate Aircraft Battle Damage Repair Assessment are currently being performed manually. These manual engineering calculations can be arduous, time consuming, and error prone. Periodic turnover of ABDR personnel exacerbates this challenge and highlights the need for a tool that can both assist with the operational aspects of ABDR engineering and act as ...

  10. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF07T025

    Ultra-dense integrated circuits with sub-10-nm features would provide enormous benefits for all information technologies, including computing, networking, and signal processing. However, it is widely accepted that a radical paradigm shift from purely CMOS technology to hybrid CMOS/nanodevice circuits is essential to achieve such level of miniaturization. We propose to work on a particular circuit ...
