Passive Radiometry Based Aerial NavigationSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: AF15AT26
ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile TargetsSBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC Topic: AF15AT05
ABSTRACT: The focus of this research will be on developing a model and associated computational tool called HPEM-Expert that is consistent with the Directed RF Energy Assessment Model 2, (DREAM2), which describes and predicts the effects of a high-power electromagnetic (HPEM) signal on a mobile target, to improve on the existing DREAM tool. Our approach will be to develop a modeling and simulation ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Multi-Modal Sensor Fusion Utilizing Statistical Dependence and Compressive SamplingSBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC Topic: AF15AT16
ABSTRACT: Our goal is to develop theoretical frameworks for efficient multisensor fusion of high dimensional data for target detection localization and tracking. We plan to develop novel algorithms based upon our previous research on copula theory to perform inference with multi-modal correlated sensor data. Copulas describes the dependence between random variables and allow one to optimally explo ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket EnginesSBC: 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
High Speed Electronic Device SimulatorSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION 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 ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF AmplificationSBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF15AT15
ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Phase Transitions, Nucleation and Mixing Modeling through Trans-Critical ConditionsSBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF14AT23
ABSTRACT: In this proposal, researchers from Cascade Technologies and Professors Matthias Ihme and Ali Mani from Stanford University lay out a plan to develop predictive modeling tools for transcritical flows. Phase I of the three phase plan is outlined in detail and extensions are proposed for Phases II and III. Central points of the Phase I plan include: A comprehensive review and assessment ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear ProtectionSBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF15AT31
ABSTRACT: Future corrosion and wear protection of structural metals on on military aircraft and weapon systems will require advanced development of metallic and composite materials that are not restricted with respect to environment, safety and occupational health regulations. Conventional metallic alloys containing chromium, nickel, cobalt, and tungsten that have historically provided coating pro ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
