  1. High Density, Multi-Layered Nosetips for Hypersonic Projectiles

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N131071

    The Navy is developing weapon systems capable of launching inert projectiles for long-range surface fire support and missile intercept applications. Inert projectiles offer significant logistical and safety advantages over conventional chemical propellants or explosive ordnances. The launch conditions of future hypersonic projectiles will put extreme mechanical and aerothermal loads on the project ...

  4. Flexible CPU-GPU computational plasma applications with particles and fluids

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: SB143002

    Theoretical computing speeds have increased dramatically in the last decade with chip advances, including Graphics Processor Units (GPUs).In practice, however, these gains have not been realized, largely due to the accompanying high development costs due to the need for multiple code bases to take advantage of the various chips and their variants.The proposed project addresses these issues from bo ...

  5. Thermal Isolation Technology for Large-Format Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    ABSTRACT:Large format lithium-ion batteries with ineffective cell isolation are potentially hazardous when exposed to conditions such as crush, overcharge, discharge, high temperature and internal short circuit. The recent Boeing incidents and similar incidents in the automotive industry underscore the importance of current research into the root causes and safety hazards associated with such batt ...

  6. High Performance Microminiature Free Space Shutter for CAMS

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB142005

    ColdQuanta proposes the development, fabrication, testing and demonstration of a free-space microshutter based on MEMS technology. The microshutter head will provide extinction ratios exceeding 70 dB and shutter transition times below 10 us, and it will be smaller than any other free space shutter technology currently available. The proposed shutter leverages prior experience with the successful d ...
