  1. Refractory Substrate/Capillary Assisted/Thin Flowing Lithium Film Plasma Facing Component

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    78365 Free-surface, flowing, liquid-metal cooling systems are an option for the removal of heat from energy-producing fusion devices. However, these free flowing liquid films are difficult to direct and contain because of their interactions with the high energy plasma and the powerful magnetic fields present in these machines. This project will develop a, capillary assisted, thin flowing, lithi ...

  2. Complex Coolant Fluid for PEM Cell Systems

    SBC: DYNALENE INC.            Topic: 32c

    75554B Fuel cells are an efficient, combustion-less, virtually pollution-free source of power. In particular, Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells are ideal for a number of applications, due to their ¿quick¿ warm-up characteristics. However, these fuel cells contain some inherent inefficiencies, which results in waste heat that must be removed rapidly via a coolant ¿ currently, either D ...

  3. Design and Construction of a High Field Hybrid-Asymmetric Superconducting Magnet System for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: American Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: 23a

    79359S05 There is an urgent need at neutron user-facilities worldwide to eliminate problems caused by magnetic stray fields from high-field, split-pair superconducting magnets. There is also a growing demand within the neutron scattering community for high-field, split-pair magnets that can be used for polarized beam experiments without sacrificing field strength or field uniformity. None of the ...

  4. Demonstration of Augmented UAV Flight Performance Using Nonthermal Plasma Actuators

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04166

    An effective surface flow controller for the manipulation of the properties of aerodynamic boundary layers, particularly the resulting body drag and airflow attachment, has been long sought after. The goal has always been a surface airflow controller that is able to manipulate the aerodynamic boundary layer while both saving fuel (reducing power consumption) and improving the aircraft performance ...

  5. New Decontamination for Aircraft Cargo Interior

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04063

    Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes to develop the Plasma Agent Neutralization Elimination (PLANE) System based upon its patented One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. When developed, this advanced design will serve as a system for the decontamination of aircraft and associated cargo. AGT has demonstrated the success of OAUGDP in decontaminating various substrates ...

  7. Field Mistuning Inspection Tool

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF05183

    Blade Diagnostics Corporation proposes to study the feasibility of developing a field mistuning tool and an associated approach for managing the mistuning problem in integrally bladed rotors (IBRs). The field inspection tool will determine the frequencies of individual blades in IBRs using the methods developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The tool will be a faster, automated version of ...

  8. Joint Systems Engineering Methodology (JSEM)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF05071

    Systems Development (SD) processes demonstrate a need for improvement, particularly to increase the frequency with which systems succeed in real world settings. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) offers numerous principles, methods, and tools that are well-suited to addressing areas in which SD is currently most weak (e.g., handling complexity and supporting the design phase). In response to thi ...

  9. Cognitive Architecture Bridge (CAB)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF05088

    Years of research in human behavior modeling have yielded a wide array of cognitive architectures. The most vital challenges confronting the field are to find an economical way to leverage the strengths of each of the multiple existing architectures and to facilitate and simplify the manner in which new cognitive models are produced, as well as to reduce the time entailed in their production. Req ...

  10. Cycles Of SiTuation Update with ModEls (COSTUME)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF05104

    An extensible system for level 2 and 3 data fusion utilizing new classes of Behavioral, Situation and Threat Models will be developed. The framework for this system is based on a model of the human analytic process in which cycles of situation update and revision are performed as evidence arrives incrementally. We argue that people learn a combination of localized information, that we call a men ...
