  1. Resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation for the deposition of polymer and polymer composite films for conformal optical coating on plastic substrates

    SBC: AppliFlex LLC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: This project will apply resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation techniques to deposit environmentally-durable, adherent and conformal anti-reflection (AR) coating on a plastic (polycarbonate) substrate. The proposed broadband AR coating is based on a multilayer architecture of low-refractive index polymer and high-refractive index polymer or polymer hybrid materials. High quality poly ...

  2. Lightweight Composite/Hybrid Structures with Enhanced Properties

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF10BT27

    ABSTRACT: Future hypersonic vehicles, like X-43 and X-51 derivatives and Falcon HTV-3, will require advanced strategies for thermal protection systems (TPS) and methods of structural integration. The goal in designing TPS for these types of high performance applications is to establish multi-mission reusable systems with reduced weight and increased performance that possess multifunctionality, e ...

  3. Electrical Energy Storage System by SMES Method for Ultra-High Power and Energy Density

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: A Novel Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system is proposed. The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, FL in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) also of Tallahassee, FL proposes in Phase 1 to design a prototype SMES system with significantly enhanced energy storage capacity over earlier SMES concepts. With this design the potential ex ...

  4. Design and Analysis of Multi-Core Software

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T03

    We propose a comprehensive software tool called ModelTime(TM)for the design, analysis and construction of multi-core software for distributed real-time systems using a model-based design methodology. ModelTime will use UML-like diagrams to capture networked multi-core platforms, software components and configurations, functional and para-functional attributes like end-to-end timing constraints, a ...

  5. Operating System Mechanisms for Many-Core Systems

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T04

    Overwhelming heat and clocking considerations have led to the accelerating rise of multicore processors. The number of cores per chip is expected to increase rapidly in coming years. In fact, chips with 100 cores and prototypes with 128 cores are already available. As the number of cores increases, the scalability of the operating system(s) will become a major bottleneck, particularly for embedd ...

  6. Hardware Accelerated Code for Hybrid Computational Electromagnetics

    SBC: REMCOM, INC.            Topic: AF112025

    ABSTRACT: A hybrid computational Electromagnetic solution will be developed that combines techniques in order to handle far-field propagation, near-field interactions, and detailed interactions with complex objects, such as human anatomical models, while taking advantage of the computational power of graphics processing units (GPU). The approach will leverage existing, mature physics models with ...

  7. Radiation-hardened, Non-volatile Memory for Aerospace and Defense Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF112087

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened, non-volatile (NV) memory in aerospace and defense applications and in reliable, long-life, high-speed NV memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight. Recent refocus on magnetic memory technologies, stemming f ...

  8. Reactive Case Materials for Enhanced Blast

    SBC: Reactive Metals International Inc.            Topic: AF112108

    ABSTRACT: Fully Dense Reactive Nanocomposite Materials (FD-RNM) have unique chemical and physical properties and if properly exploited can lead to greater blast effects, chem/bio agent defeat and less collateral damage than conventional steel warhead cases. Whether the FD-RNM are thermite type or metal-metalloid type these benefits are realized through the materials highly exothermic reactions. ...

  9. High-Temperature Microsample Testing System

    SBC: Nanomechanics, Inc.            Topic: AF112126

    ABSTRACT: There has been growing interest in nano- and micro-scale testing of materials at increasingly elevated temperatures. However technological obstacles have limited the range of materials that can be tested and limited the temperatures that can be successfully reached for experimentation due to oxidation of the sample, thermal drift in the actuation and heat management of the system. For ...

  10. Graphene Memory Device

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF121055

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened digital memory in aerospace and defense applications and in long-life, high-speed memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight with device redundancy and shielding. Recent focus on Graphene and its capabilities ...
