  1. Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physi ...

  2. Optimized Process for Ultrasonic Consolidation of Metallic Composites

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: A12aT004

    The overall objective of the proposed effort is to develop an improved ultrasonic consolidation process for metal matrix composites (MMCs). This will be done through the development and validation of multiscale models of the bonding process and the laminated structures produced. These models will facilitate the optimization of the in-coming material, the structural performance of the processed m ...

  3. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: Troxler Electronic Laboratories            Topic: A12aT013

    Currently nuclear-based gauges are the most widely used equipment in the construction industry to measure moisture and density of pavement materials. Such measurements are very accurate, rapid, and non-destructive. Attempts to replace these nuclear methods by non-nuclear methods have shown strong limitations. For this project, we propose to integrate nuclear and seismic technologies to measure t ...

  4. High Performance, Cost Effective, Planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) Gas Sensors on InAs and InN

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    We plan to implement a planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) gas sensor on both InAs and InN platforms for the ppt-ppm detection of NOx and H2O. Kyma Technologies and Duke University will leverage Duke"s leading MOCSER based NOx sensor technology which uses surface functionalization of InAs with hemin (chloroprotoporphyrin IX iron(III)) to create a strong affinity for NOx. ...

  6. High-Quality AlGaN Epitaxial Films on GaN and AlN Substrates

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: A12aT019

    The objective of proposed work is to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining AlGaN films of any composition with dislocation densities below 1x106 cm-2 on native nitride substrates either by sustaining a pseudomorphic state or by reducing the number of threading dislocations by specific stress relieving schemes at the interfaces or within the thickness of the layers.

  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 ...

  9. High Range Resolution (HRR)-Surrogate SAR Target Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112137

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has invested considerable resources into collecting and synthesizing radar data for training and testing ATC/R systems. Significant cost savings may be realized if these existing datasets may be leveraged for training new sensors and modalities. Signal Innovations Group offers a new paradigm for automatically identifying statistically salient features for ATR systems fro ...
