  1. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            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 ...

  2. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT01

    ABSTRACT: Two accelerating trends in military aircraft design and development are apparent: (1) increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, guidance, navigation and control (GNC), etc., enabled by ever-smaller and evermore capable electronics; and (2) reduction in overall size and available space for auxiliary equipment (and associated wiring, etc.) to measure and asse ...

  3. Infrared Light Emitting Arrays for Target Image Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (2Kx2K), response time < 4 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid cr...

  4. Prototype for Rapid Reconstitution for Ground-based Space Situational Awareness Capability for Near-geosynchronous Objects

    SBC: DFM Engineering Inc            Topic: AF16AT05

    We propose to research the feasibility of rapidly reconstituting a ground based sensor system for space situational awareness with a large fraction of the capability of the GEODSS sensor system. This system can be deployed quickly to a GEODSS site where ...

  5. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  7. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate a software package based on coupled Fokker-Planck (FP) - Fermi Kinetic Transport (FKT) models and full-wave Maxwell electromagnetic (EM) solver to accurately predict semiconductor device behavior from dc up through the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. The FP model provides accurate non-equilibrium occupation functions for hot electrons with real ...

  8. Low Cost Repeatable Bio-FET Sensing

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT11

    ABSTRACT: The Triton team proposes to develop techniques for fabrication and characterization of high performance biofunctionalized field effect transistors (bio-FETs) for sensing applications. Nanoscale electronic materials such as silicon nanowires, carbon nanotubes and graphene are promising materials for biosensing applications. Field effect transistors (FETs) using nanomaterials have been de ...

  9. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta is partnering with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combine Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF electrometer will ...

  10. STAN: Scene and Target Analysis Network

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF18AT014

    The introduction of computer vision in precision-guided ammunition will potentially increase their targeting capabilities, in particular for moving targets such as tanks, vehicles and mobile command posts. EO/IR cameras offer a relatively inexpensive, low-SWaP payload solution which, combined with latest advances in SIMD hardware (GPUs), are finally starting to allow running sophisticated visual g ...
