    Talk Title: Energy Conversion and Storage Explored with Synchrotron X-ray Tomography and Modeling

    Abstract: The world is experiencing an era of rapid change and globalization in which increased competition for resources, access to Information Technology, and changing demographics has the potential to shift the balance of power. In this era, the U. S. Air Force is facing conditions that diverge significantly from the strategic environment of the last two decades as potential adversaries use emergent globalized technology and manufacturing infrastructure to rapidly develop sophisticated military capabilities that create more contested operational environments. The challenge is to ensure our Defense forces obtain the best technology, at the right time, while affordably meeting mission needs. Specifically, future Air Force missions will require all the modern systems performance characteristics: supersonic dash speed, efficient super-cruise, stealth, flexible weapon payloads, maneuverability, active and passive defensive systems and countermeasures, small logistical footprint, and extended standoff ranges beyond that of current systems. To meet the challenge, the Air Force Research Laboratory's Multidisciplinary Science and Technology Center is developing (conceptual) design capabilities that integrate multiple technical disciplines, effectively, efficiently, and affordably. The payoff envisioned will mitigate the adverse performance impact that comes with unwanted or unanticipated systems interactions and will proactively enable the discovery and exploitation of new phenomena for the development of revolutionary aerospace systems.
