  1. High Voltage (HV) Fireset Systems and Subsystem Component Level Designs

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: AF171089

    Current and future explosive munition weapon systems development relies heavily on explosives detonation performance characterization and computational hydro-code simulation research conducted by DoD and DoE research communities. This work in turn relies

  2. Computational tools for reliable prediction of complex hypersonic flows

    SBC: Next Frontier LLC            Topic: AF17AT014

    In order to enable reliable predictions based on full scale vehicle simulations relevant to high-speed ISR missions, detailed interactions among various nonequilibrium physical phenomena and their coupling to turbulent flow structures, characterized by a broad range of length/time scales, need to be accurately modeled. Although detailed predictions can be obtained using detailed state-to-state kin ...

  4. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  5. Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161004

    ABSTRACT: The Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC) is a self-contained plasma diagnostic instrument suite uniquely suited to the task of characterizing and comparing thruster operation in ground test and on-orbit environments. Of paramount importance to the qualification of electric propulsion (EP) systems is the measurable influence of the ground testing and evaluation (T&E) faci ...

  6. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  7. Electric-based Combined Cycle Thruster for Multi-mode Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF162010

    The Electric-Based Combined Cycle (EBCC) thruster is a new approach to spacecraft propulsion that combines the high thrust of a chemical combustion system and the high Isp of an electric propulsion thruster into a single thruster. In EBCC, a chemical propellant is burned in a sub-100 N rocket within a pulsed EP system. That decomposed, hot, neutral gas is then accelerated in a 5kWclass neutral ent ...

  8. Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161006

    ABSTRACT: An innovative diagnostic, Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence (TREBF), will be developed that possesses the measurement capabilities needed to understand test facility effects on electric propulsion (EP) systems. Even the most advanced test and evaluation vacuum chambers are incapable of replicating the pressures encountered in geostationary earth orbits. These elevated background p ...
