  1. Nonlinear Reduced Order Modeling of Limit Cycle Oscillations of Aircraft Wiings

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Zona technology/Duke University team process a challenging set of tasks to be accomplished in two years time that builds upon the very substantial progress already made in Phase I. Specifically, the 2D, Euler Euations CFD model (developed in Phase I)that uses a harmonic balance solution technique will be extended to include teh effects of viscosity (Navier-Stoke equations)and multiple structu ...

  3. Solid State Terahertz-Frequency Laser Prototype

    SBC: Terahertz Device Corp.            Topic: AF00T017

    Compact, coherent terahertz-frequency radiation sources would open up an otherwise technologically dark part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The Phase II work objective is to develop solid state, semiconductor-based laser prototypes. The Phase I work demonstrated the feasibility of developing both optically and electrically pumped lasers based on semiconductor active devices embedded in metallic ...

  5. Centering Resonance Analysis: A superior data mining algorithm for textual data streams

    SBC: Crawdad Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF03T011

    An increasing amount of information comes in the form of streaming text: news media, email, and even human conversation. Creating insight from streaming text has been challenging though, because current knowledge discovery systems depend on expert analysts to move from simple data to actionable knowledge. In order for such systems to be used outside a small cadre of experts, they must incorporat ...

  6. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  7. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T003

    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  8. An Automated Design Optimization Tool for Electromagnetic Control of Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF04T009

    This STTR Phase II project proposes to develop an automated design optimization tool for electromagnetic flow control based on the gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett scheme and the discrete adjoint optimization method. The adjoint method has already proved successful for dealing with both transonic aerodynamic shape and aero-structural optimization problems and has been extensively tested with the Euler equa ...

  9. Integrated Aero-Servo-Thermo-Populso-Elasticity (ASTPE) for Hypersonic Scramjet Vehicle Design/Analysis

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF05T027

    Conventional air-vehicle designs are subjected to a well-set system/operational requirements. Scramjet-powered vehicle (SPV) design however enters an unprecedented level of multidisciplinary synergy to achieve its operational requirements. Through a convoluted and inverse design strategy for SPV, its propulsion system inlet design largely dictates the airframe geometry. Further, it is complicated ...
