  1. Abductive Electronics Prognostic Tool (ADEPT)

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AbTech Corporation proposes to apply its unique Statistical Network ModelingTM technology to develop a non contact prognostic assessment tool that 1) acquires, processes, and analyzes electronic radiated signal data, 2) learns the expected characteristics and patterns of specific radiated signals measured from microelectronic semiconductor devices using AbTech's statistical network modeling techno ...

  2. Hybrid Statistical Network/Expert System Approach for Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The human brain processes information from several sensors of the body and extracts meaningful information about the environment. Likewise, the ability to fuse multilevel, multifaceted processes dealing with the association, correlation, and combination of data from single or multiple sources is desired to attain state and identity estimates in a timely manner. However, current data fusion techniq ...

  3. Active Noise Reduction Headphones for In-Situ Audiometry Testing

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active noise reduction (ANR) headsets have found a market niche in the hearing protection industry, thereby validating the technology of active noise control for personal applications. This Phase I project will seek to extend the application of personal ANR systems to include specialized headphones which can successfully evaluate hearing acuity in typical clinical environments. To ensure a succe ...

  4. Fast-Acting Cryogenic Injection Valves for Pulse Detonation

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity addressed in this proposal is a fast-acting cryogenic injection valve for pulse detonation rocket engines (PDREs), which are predicted to significantly out-perform current state-of-the-art chemical deflagrative rocket propulsion systems. The developed valve would allow high mass flow rates to be achieved with fast response times, all at minimum cost, weight, power, and volume. Th ...

  5. Armament Research

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent efforts in the target vulnerability community (fixed ground targets, mobile ground targets, and aircraft) have focused on enhancing the blast and fragmentation modeling from weapon detonations. This includes modeling propagation of the detonation effects from the weapon through their interaction with the target geometry, to the development of loads on and response of the target structure. ...

  6. Slipper Wear/Gouging Phenomena

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this work is to develop analytical techniques to characterize wear and gouging phenomena of slippers at speeds up to hypersonic and demonstrate means to evaluate or reduce slipper wear/gouging. Specifically, we will develop analytical techniques that can be used to predict slipper wear patterns and gouging phenomena throughout the sled velocity regime to Mach 10. This will inclu ...

  7. Numerical Design of New RF Photonic Devices

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Controlling millimeter radio frequency waves with optical signals is a requirement for military communications and radar systems. The advances in the past decade have led to photonic sensors and switches that utilize light beams interacting with RF devices. New capabilities extending to higher frequencies and working over multiple frequency bands are possible using a combination of nonlinear op ...

  8. Reinforcement Learning for Avionics Applications

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Simulation-based optimization techniques that enlist reinforcement learning controllers are ideally suited for complex and multi-objective optimization problems that cannot be solved easily using traditional techniques, especially when the stochastic natures or the environment, resources, and external interactive entities are taken into account. Reinforcement learning based on incremental value i ...

  9. Low-Leakage Brush Seals for Rocket Turbopumps

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    It has been proven, for gas turbines, that brush seals exhibit substantially lower leakage in close clearance areas than conventional labyrinth seals. Direct efficiency gains from reducing seal leakage losses in turbopumps with brush seals potentially amounts to several percent of the total pump power consumption. As such, the case for transitioning brush seals to rocket turbopumps is compelling ...

  10. High Pressure Compressor Using an Axial-Flow, Mixed-Flow, and Centrifugal Stage with Interstage and Disc

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High Pressure Compressor (HPC) pressure ratios of up to 40:1 are required to achieve 100:1 cycle pressure ratios. A multi-stage axial HPC configuration will be too long and heavy and too inefficient in later stages (at these higher pressure ratios). Increased tip clearance to span ratio will also lead to low efficiency and surge margin for the axial HPC. The innovations of the proposed work inc ...
