SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT26
ABSTRACT: FIRST RF has teamed with University Research Foundation (URF) and Radiometrics Corporation to develop a passive radiometer-based geolocation system for use with a wide variety of USAF platforms. The system will be comprised of a ruggedized, near-COTS radiometer system by Radiometrics Corporation, augmented with a robust 2-D scanning beamsteering antenna by FIRST RF Corporation and enhanc ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Applied Research LLC Topic: AF15AT27
ABSTRACT: Our main objective in this project is to propose a novel Structured Sparse Priors for Target Recognition (SSPTR) system and to demonstrate that discriminative applications such as data clustering or target detection, tracking, and classification can be solved effectively and directly on the compressed measurement domain without the need to recover the original data. Our proposed sparse-r ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systemsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: OSD12T06
The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...STTR Phase II 2014 Department of DefenseOffice of the Secretary of Defense
SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC Topic: AF11BT29
ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is to develop a satellite drag specification capability ...STTR Phase II 2014 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC Topic: AF15AT14
ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT21
ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ORBIT LOGIC INCORPORATED Topic: AF15AT14
ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the battle domains of space, ground, air and sea, it is natural that the U.S. move toward incorporating autonomous capabilities to enhance/replace the traditional role of humans. Continued advances in processing capability and techniques to employ decision logic and adaptive learning strategies will soon make this vision reality. To deploy any such capability o ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF15AT17
ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF15AT21
ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF15AT19
ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
