  1. Retrofittable Tactical Head Up Display (RTHUD)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF131027

    ABSTRACT:Currently tactical Head up Displays (HUD) are expensive both in cost of acquisition and Life Cycle Cost terms. In addition, retrofit of a more capable HUD into an existing airframe is complex and the bulk of the HUD competes with other display systems for valuable cockpit volume. The objective of this program is to verify the practicability of a new approach to the HUD architecture that w ...

  5. A Flexible Integrated Optical Chip Based Sensor Network for Aircraft Leak Detection

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF131206

    ABSTRACT: To address Air Force needs for a networked sensor system for detecting aircraft leaks and environmental contaminants that cause corrosion, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a micro-miniature, flexible integrated optical chip (FlexOChip) sensor for aircraft leak detection. This proposed sensor could be cemented to the aircraft to detect chemical leaks from fluid lines ...

  9. Blast-Resistant Composite Panels for Composite Tactical Shelters

    SBC: SUNREZ CORPORATION            Topic: AF06345

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to use proven composite technologies to develop a new composite 463L pallet design to be used as a replacement for the current system. The objective will be reached by taking these new technologies through subscale testing followed by developing a number of complete pallets for full scale simulation testing. This will culminate in the delivery of six co ...

  10. Restoration of Dimensional Tolerances

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF073115

    ABSTRACT: When the inner diameter (ID) of a landing gear aluminum alloy outer cylinder is damaged or worn there is very little that can be done to restore the ID of the cylinder. Consequently, the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. A coating repair for aluminum alloy cylinder IDs that builds thickness, which can be machined to size, would be of great value to the Unite ...
