  1. Intermediate Temperature Carbon/Carbon Structures

    SBC: UTILITY DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: AF02T008

    The main objective will be to optimize the benzoxazine resins and additives that were developed and tested during the Phase I program. The Phase II research will result in an increase in the oxidation resistant and strength and modulus so that these C/C composites will be suitable for many applications, especially as a replacement for titanium components in the 700 to 1200F temperature r ...

  2. 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 ...

  5. Novel Experimental and Numerical Methods for the Aeromechanical Design of Flapping Wing Hovering MAVs

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: AF06T021

    Recent developments have made clear the strong potential of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) for a wide range of surveillance and reconnaissance missions, particularly if the challenging but critical hovering capability can be achieved. Implementation of practical hovering MAVs, however, requires breakthroughs in understanding of the complex MAV flow environment as well as development of practical desig ...

  6. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF07T025

    We propose to develop a novel hybrid circuit approach combining CMOS and two terminal crosspoint nanodevices with a novel interface consisting of an array of pins with nanometer scale tips. Our CMOL approach will allow the fabrication of ultra-dense integrated circuits (up to 10^12 active devices per cm2) for advanced computing (up to 10^20 operation per cm2 per second), information storage and se ...
