  1. Optimized Information Display for Tactical Air Control Party


    ABSTRACT:Tactical Air Control Parties (TACP) and Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC) deploy with not only a significant amount of gear, but also a large work load in order to manage all of their responsibilities. As the battlefield becomes more digitized, it is forcing TACPs/JTACs (which we will refer to as just TACPs for brevity in the document) to deal with more information than their current s ...

  2. Correlating tactical jet noise characteristics with community annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:The proposed effort will begin connecting military jet noise source and field properties with waveform and spectral features that correlate with human perception and annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response relative to ordinary transportation noise because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as significant shock content and low-frequen ...

  3. 40 Percent Air Mass Zero Efficiency Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: SEMPRIUS INC.            Topic: AF151095

    ABSTRACT:We propose an ultra-low profile hybrid CPV concept that combines multi-junction (MJ) CPV cells capable of 40% efficiency at 1 sun with a low-cost single-junction PV backplane in a design that is lightweight, based on concentration ratios >100X and has a panel thickness 500 W/kg and a wide acceptance angle of >4.0. The low-profile design, combined with world record performance, will yield ...

  5. Advanced Multisensor Concepts for Theater Ballistic Missile (TBM) Interceptors

    SBC: CORVID TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF151108

    ABSTRACT:Abstract: The objective of this effort is developing algorithms using sensor track data to detect, track, and classify TBM targets and predict TBM trajectory during boost phase. These algorithms will support engagement prioritization and optimize intercept probability for an airborne weapon layer of missile defense. Corvid proposes a multi-mode sensor suite of RF and IR sensors on the hos ...

  6. Atmospheric Plasma Titanium Surface Preparation for Structural Adhesive Bonding

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF151128

    ABSTRACT:Structural adhesive bonding of titanium alloys and other metals offers many advantages over mechanical fasteners, but requires careful surface preparation to avoid premature bond failure. The existing surface treatment options have significant disadvantages, including hazardous material usage, the potential for contamination from debris, and long treatment times. A media-free technology t ...

  7. Visual Tire Pressure Indication

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: AF151169

    ABSTRACT: Vadum will develop a rugged, reliable low-cost visual tire pressure indicator system that will allow quick, objective assessment at standoff. The Visual Tire Pressure (VTiP) stem requires minimal changes as only the valve stem is replaced, thereby minimizing adoption cost and total cost of ownership. The VTiP stem has adjustable pressure set points, maintains closure of the valve core, a ...

  10. AlN-Based Power Electronics Device Epiwafer Manufacturing

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Crystalline aluminum nitride AlN) materials have the potential to support a new generation of ultra-high performance power electronics. While great progress has been realized in producing high structural quality AlN substrates, there is currently no viable method for controllably producing electrically conductive AlN device layers on top of such substrates. R&D groups are attempting to develop met ...
