Organic&Hybrid Organic/Inorganic-Based Graded-Index/Layered Optical Coatings by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC Topic: AF10BT19
ABSTRACT: One of the Air Force main interests is to improve the antireflective (AR) optical properties of polycarbonate by exploring new coating materials or coating techniques to eliminate delamination and stress cracks due to the mismatch in the coefficient of thermal expansion between the coatings and the polymer substrates. SwRI and INTER Materials are in a unique position to assist the Air F ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Prime Photonics, LC Topic: AF10BT22
ABSTRACT: For this Phase II STTR effort, Prime Photonics and Virginia Tech propose to demonstrate a fully packaged hybrid photovoltaic/magneto-thermoelectric (PV/MTG) panel with improved energy conversion efficiency designed for solar powered air vehicles. In addition to acting as an active thermal backplane for the PV, the MTG is designed to maximize thermal to electrical conversion from the av ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
Highly-Scalable Computational-Based Engineering Algorithms for Emerging Parallel Machine ArchitecturesSBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF10BT13
ABSTRACT: RNET and The Ohio State University propose to use algorithmic modifications and multi-level parallelization techniques and tools to improve the scalability of the aero-line/aero-elastic coupled CFD/CSD codes relevant to the DoD/AF (e.g., CREATE/Kestrel). The optimizations will address inter-node and intra-node parallelization to better target emerging compute architectures (e.g., multi ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATRIX RESEARCH INC Topic: AF12BT05
ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATRIX RESEARCH INC Topic: AF12BT06
ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop innovative methods for deriving a sparse set of physical target features that can be used for exploitation of air to ground signature data collected from sensor systems including electro-optical, infrared, and laser radar. Current classification methods require near exact replication of the original imaging parameters, or extensive modeling in ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC. Topic: OSD11T01
Multi-processor computing systems are growing in capacity and usage. They encompass multiple, distributed implementations as well as heterogeneous, embedded computing architectures. The processing density enabled by such approaches holds promise for unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) with their plethora of mission sensors and command and control processing requirements. However, the software ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: AF12BT12
ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
Spatiotemporal Nonlinear Data Analysis Tools and Reduced Order Models for Prediction of High-Pressure Reacting Flow Dynamics and ControlSBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC Topic: AF12BT15
ABSTRACT: This Phase-I research effort is designed to forward the engineering investigation of the dynamics and control of turbulent combustion in high-pressure combustion systems by developing a set of game-changing nonlinear analysis tools that can significantly improve the post-processing speed and intelligent data mining of large numerical or experimental data sets. Moreover, a system based o ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: OMITRON INC Topic: AF10BT36
ABSTRACT: The leading errors in computing future positions of satellites in Low Earth Orbit are generally due to inaccuracies in the thermospheric density and the prediction thereof. The use of Dynamic Calibration Atmosphere has reduced these traditional sources of error and variations seen in ballistic coefficients can now be attributed to unmodeled satellite frontal area changes. When the orb ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: METRON INCORPORATED Topic: AF12BT14
ABSTRACT: Existing machine learning algorithms have difficulty using all available data about a problem. This STTR will develop a new algorithm that can make full use of all available data, whether that data is labeled or not, and even when some data types or data resolutions are not available during operation. BENEFIT: This STTR will develop a novel machine learning algorithm for reasoning abo ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
