  1. Plasma Simulation from Two-Fluid to MHD in Complex Geometry Using Local Relaxation

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: Multidimensional simulation of plasmas will be critical to the design of high voltage and high energy density devices over coming decades. Individual fluid simulation codes are presently limited to one or perhaps two of three plasma models: the higher densities and longer time scales of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), the lower densities and shorter time scales of extended MHD (XMHD), and ...

  2. Simulation Software for Strongly Coupled Plasmas

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF11BT23

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate a strongly-coupled non-equilibrium plasma simulation model. Strongly coupled plasmas occur in a wide range of physical situations impacting a wide range of research and development areas connected to Air Force technology. The simulation model proposed here is based on the particle-in-cell (PIC) methodology, which has recently been validated by the pro ...

  4. Modeling and Testing of RF/HPM Effects in Selected CMOS Devices

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF09BT08

    ABSTRACT: Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that for a broad class of semiconductors RF/HPM signals at the interface will couple to protective diodes and other diode structures ...

  5. High Energy Density Nanocomposite Based on Tailored Surface Chemistry

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: AF09BT05

    ABSTRACT: High energy density capacitors are required for practical implementation of GW-class pulse power systems on mobile platforms. In response to this need, TPL has established unique dielectric and capacitor capabilities. Revolutionary materials, designs and manufacturing processes have been developed for power sources that have potential for an order of magnitude reduction in mass and vo ...

  7. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    To provide effective communication and coordination training to Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) crewmembers, we propose a prototype adaptive training communication environment using our T-BORG simulation and integration framework to incorporate new and pre-existing intelligent agents and synthetic teammates at various levels of fidelity. The problem addressed is that simultaneous monitoring of mu ...

  9. Automation of Nuclear Arsenal Awareness

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: AF112047

    ABSTRACT: Situational Awareness (SA) for the country"s nuclear arsenal currently relies on manual processes for correlation and compilation of disparate data sources. The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center (AFNWC) Sustainment and Integration Center (STIC) needs automation in correlating data and compiling their SA reports. Net-centric technologies and proper application of state-of-the-art visual ...

  10. Scalable Conjunction Processing using Spatiotemporally Indexed Ephemeris Data

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF112050

    ABSTRACT: To reduce the risk of on-orbit collisions, the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) tracks objects in its Space Catalog and forecasts potential conjunctions. Because both the size of the Space Catalog and its ephemeris update frequency are expected to grow significantly in the near term, the methods for conjunction analysis will need to incorporate new filtering techniques to more quic ...
