  1. Information Sharing between the Global Information Grid (GIG) and the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) system

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: AF081028

    ABSTRACT: Currently, there is no certified, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)-based solution for cross-domain voice and video. More specifically, combatant commands and other agencies have requirements to enable users across different security networks to initiate and receive direct cross-domain audio and videophone calls, and to participate in audio conference calls. To address this need, Tr ...

  2. Joint Processing of Multi-band Signals with Information Assurance

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: AF121063

    ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge proposes to prototype and evaluate GNSS processing algorithms designed to provide high accuracy and spoofing robustness (information assurance (IA)) by exploiting diversity in radio navigation signals (frequency, location, bandwidth, format) using new signal processing techniques. We will extend on-going work in the area of multi-satellite, multi-frequency GNSS signal proces ...

  3. Embedded Cognitive Bayesian Prognostic Health Management for RPA Propulsion Systems

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF121170

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is facing severe budget cuts which force the need to cut operating costs of aircraft and manpower. One way to do this is to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. The Air Force desires a new prognostic health management (PHM) appro ...

  4. Optimizing Coating Processes and Chemistries for Enhanced Hot Section, Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) Life

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: AF121171

    ABSTRACT: Environmental protection coatings are required to provide oxidation and hot corrosion protection to hot section turbine components. Unfortunately, the current generation of such coatings can degrade the fatigue resistance of the coated alloy. It is increasingly recognized that, due to the detrimental effect of the coating on low cycle fatigue (LCF) performance, the LCF life of a coated ...

  5. Improved Manufacturing Technology for Investment Casting Cores

    SBC: Mikro Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF06114

    ABSTRACT: The centerpiece of this proposed work is the application of an innovative manufacturing technology developed by Mikro Systems, Inc. (Mikro) called Tomo-Lithographic-Molding (TOMO). In recent years important breakthroughs have been realized as TOMO has been applied to the production of advanced ceramic cores for investment casting of turbine airfoils. For large IGT components, Mikro tech ...

  6. Discourse Analysis for Insights into Group Identity and Intent


    ABSTRACT:In our Phase 1 SBIR effort (Discourse Analysis for Insights into Group Identity and Intent), SAE conducted a pilot study to assess whether its suite of natural language processing techniques could be adapted to automatically extract meaningful discourse measures from extremist group literature (cognitive complexity, idea density, vocabulary diversity, and sentiments expressed toward in an ...

  7. Hydration Tolerant, low Thermal Conductivity (K) Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: AF121175

    ABSTRACT: Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are currently employed to protect gas turbine engine components. Thermally exposed TBC systems have been observed to be affected by moisture. This spallation mechanism, Moisture Induced Delayed Spallation (MIDS), occurs at room temperature while the coatings are not exposed to the thermal-mechanical inputs that typically drive TBC failure. Future TBC syste ...

  8. Model-Based Compositional Reasoning for Complex Systems of Systems

    SBC: Dependable Computing LLC            Topic: AF131006

    ABSTRACT: The proposed research builds on Dependable Computing's successful Phase I effort. The Phase II effort demonstrates the critical role played by the system safety case in the development of complex systems of systems. Specifically, the safety case (1) informs and guides systems and safety engineering and (2) enables compositional certification through use of contract-adapter arguments. Ad ...

  9. Extreme Environment Stress and Strain Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF131007

    ABSTRACT: Luna has demonstrated the feasibility of a high speed extreme environment stress and strain measurement system operating at temperatures >900C (1652F) and streaming static and dynamic data at 2.5MHz. During Phase I Luna also demonstrated the system's ability to measure a 26/10Hz AC component on top of a larger 1.2% strain component. The proposed Phase II effort will optimize the d ...

  10. Efficient Human Posing and Morphing for Electromagnetic Analysis

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF131029

    ABSTRACT: Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including permanent tissue damage. Modeling these thermal effects across a whole population of humans is diffic ...
