  1. Buffet Control of the F-22 Using an Enhanced Distributed Actuation System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can significantly reduce the buffet loads on the tail structure of an F/A-18. ACX proposes to develop a simila ...

  3. Data Management for Imaging Spectrometers

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  4. Engineering Development of Cryogenic Hypercapacitors for Energy Storage

    SBC: Cryo Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Compact, cost-effective energy storage is important for defense installations, critical facilities, and industry in order to have assured, uninterruptible power sources. Power quality and power conditioning systems play a vital role in enhancing productivity in an era where microprocessor-controlled systems are vulnerable to momentary power outages. Capacitive energy storage systems offer an att ...

  5. Low Cost Deposition of YBCO Films for Advanced HTS Conductor Applications


    This program develops and demonstrates an innovative, low cost, solution and non-vacuum based process for deposition of YBCO on continuous, textured metal tape substrates. It is easily scaleable for long lengths of continuous conductors, and is an inherently more cost effective as it is scaled.Recent advances in the deposition of thick YBCO films have demonstrated that fabricating practical, long ...

  6. Super-Resolution of Imagery Using Sensor Motion


    Amerinex Applied Imaging, Inc. proposes to develop techniques for the super-resolution of imagery obtained from a moving sensor. The research will focus on identifying approaches to the recovery of image detail to resolutions beyond the specific Nyquist and Rayleigh limits associated with a particular imaging system. These approaches will be applicable to a variety of imaging, and will not rely ...

  7. A System to Enhance Team Decision-Making Peformance

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In complex human-machine systems such as military command and control (C2), corporatestrategic planning, air traffic control, and computer-supported collaborative work, the scope and complexity of the task often require that the decision-making function be distributed over several humans organized in distributed or collocated teams. For this project, we propose to enhance a proven research tool, ...

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

    As part of the Air Force program to develop aircraft coating systems with 30 years service life, Aspen Systems, Inc. proposes the development of fracture, chemical weather resistant coatings by incorporation of a hyperbranched polyarylether ketone (HPK) polyol into polyurethane and aliphatic epoxy resin systems. The hyperbranched polyol acts as a chemically and thermally stable thermoplastic toug ...

  9. Highly Sensitive Room Temperature Middle Infrared Detector

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

    Aspen Systems proposes a novel highly sensitive imaging and visualizing detector of eye-safe coherent Middle Infrared (MIR) Radiation (2 - 5 microns). The detector can operate at room temperature with noise-equivalent power NEP < 10 {super -12} WHz (super -1/2}, response time tau < 2.0X10 {super -7} s and an active aperture of few square centimeters. In the detector, the middle infrared images a ...

  10. High Powered Er:Yb Doped Fiber Laser Amplifier

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

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a Er+3:Yb+3 doped double clad fiber laser amplifier with an output power of 10 W. The active core enclosed by a large rectangular inner cladding is end pumped with a beam from a laser diode array delivered by a bundle of rectangular core fibers preserving the brightness. This active fiber is periodically re-charged, using efficient side couplers, with a system o ...
