  1. Reduced-Order Fluid-Thermal-Structural Interactions Model for Control System Design and Assessment

    SBC: APPLIED DYNAMICS INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF151189

    ABSTRACT:The proposed research will examine innovative approaches for real time simulation of the coupled fluid-thermal-structural response of hypersonic muntions operating on terminal trajectories for the purpose of high-fidelity closed-loop guidance and control. This will be accomplished by combining state-of-the-art model reduction approaches for CFD aerothermodynamics and FEM thermo-structural ...

  2. Hypersonic Materials Selection and Integration Tools

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: AF151191

    ABSTRACT:Advancements in propulsion systems, aerodynamics, and flight control capabilities are enabling hypersonic vehicles to operate at high speeds and altitudes. Therefore, significant new demands are placed on the materials used for constructing a hypersonic system due to the harsh environment created by the high speeds. An integrated design approach that considers the design, the processing, ...

  3. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...

  4. Counter Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Targeting (C-ISRT), Assessment for Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare (EMW) and Integrated Fire

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N151080

    There is a strong movement to add Non-Kinetic Fire COAs, such as Electronic Warfare attack and Computer Network Attack to the military planners toolbox. Because this new approach, called Integrated Fires (IF), integrates attack types from across traditionally separate planning disciplines it requires the creation of new planning methodologies and technologies. One key technology gap is in the Navy ...

  5. Advanced Non-Destructive System to Characterize Subsurface Residual Stresses in Turbo-machinery Components

    SBC: Proto Manufacturing Inc            Topic: N152091

    Manufacturers of aerospace propulsion systems are well aware of the positive effects of compressive residual stress (RS) fields on turbo-machinery components in terms of improved fatigue life and durability. Tensile RS, however, can cause unfavorable conditions which may lead to premature failure during operational usage. Thus, the industry objective is to capitalize on compressive RS and prevent ...

  6. Differential Characterization of Atmospheric Turbulence System (DCATS)

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to design an airborne system for characterizing long range profiles of the state of optical turbulence in the atmosphere. This system will exploit GTRIs differential image motion (DIM) LIDAR technique for measuring profiles of the refractive index structure characteristic as well as scintillation ana ...

  7. E-Field Sensor for Submarine Detection

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N15AT004

    A major challenge in MAD for submarine detection is the separation of the background magnetic noise from the magnetic field anomalies caused by a submarine. Virtual EM Inc., in partnership with the University of Michigan (UM), proposes to develop a novel electric field sensor system for measurement of the background magnetic noise by correlating the magnetic field background noise with the changin ...

  8. Active Transfer Learning for Intelligent Tutoring

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    We propose an intelligent assessment concept that will discover and reason about KSAs in multiple instruc-tional domains and settings. SoarTech will team with world-class researchers from the University of Califor-nia, Davis and the University of Memphis to research and develop TARGET: Transfer via Active Requests to Generalize Effective Training. TARGET will enhance SoarTechs assessment system DA ...

  9. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material selection criteria, proportioning methods and mixing pro ...

  10. Temporary Crack Repairs for Aluminum Structures on Surface Ships

    SBC: GOUGEON BROTHERS, INC.            Topic: N151052

    Gougeon Brothers Inc. is submitting a proposal to address the need for a temporary repair procedure for 5xxx series aluminum U.S. Navy ship structures that have stress corrosion cracking issues. The proposal explains how an innovative toughened thixotropic epoxy adhesive can be used to wet out reinforcing fabrics to a surface with simple surface preparation. This concept takes advantage of the wor ...
