  1. Multifunctional Protective Coatings for Spacecraft Surfaces

    SBC: APPLIED MATERIAL SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA05T019

    The purpose of this STTR phase II proposal is to scale up and validate various space materials product forms based on material technology concepts proven feasible in STTR phase I efforts. The STTR phase I has successfully demonstrated low cost survivable multifunctional engineered material systems: Zinc-Assisted Self-Assembled Nano-Clusters (Z-SANCs™) and Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) syst ...

  2. Formal-Verification-Based Tool for Deobfuscation of Tamper-Proofed Software

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: OSD06NC5

    The rapid increase in the use of the Internet in many aspects of our lives has led to an explosive growth in the spread of malware such as computer worms, viruses, and trojans. Security tools typically examine software for the presence of malware either by looking for specific byte signatures, or (more recently) by analyzing the candidate binary’s internal logic. However, it is surprisingly easy ...

  3. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  4. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to examine the necessary ingredients for the development of marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechancial properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomera ...

  5. Self-Healing Adhesives and Composites for Aerospace Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T025

    Self-healing composites and adhesives would alleviate longstanding problems in aerospace structures associated with multiple types of damage mechanisms such as mechanical/thermal fatigue, microcracking, and debonding. A composite cryogenic tank based on self-healing technology would prevent leakage by sealing microcracks throughout the lifetime of the tank and enable the use of composites in this ...

  6. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind target molecules with high affinity and specificity. Such DNA aptamers are biocompatible, biodegradabl ...

  7. Thermoelectrically Cooled MWIR Avalanche Photodiodes on Silicon Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF04T021

    MWIR avalanche photodetectors (APDs) are required in modern Air Force weapons systems to detect, recognize and track stationary and mobile targets under various atmospheric conditions against complex backgrounds. Theoretical and experimental results point toward HgCdTe as the material of choice for fabricating these devices, due to its low ratio of impact ionization coefficients. In Phase I we per ...

  8. Thermoelectric Cooling of Photodetector Arrays with HgCdTe-based Superlattices

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05T013

    The ultimate goal of this project is to develop the technology required for the fabrication of monolithically integrated passive thermoelectric devices with infrared photon detector arrays for improved uniformity and operability. The feasibility of using

  9. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    Currently there is no real-time technology to detect airborne biological warfare agents (BWAs). Conventional technologies require 30 minutes to 1 hour. We propose to design, fabricate and test user-friendly, low-logistical-load biosensors capable of the real-time (~ 30 s. or less) detection and identification of airborne BWAs with high sensitivity and specificity for all classes of bioagents – ...

  10. Linguistic Geometry Techniques for Distributed Interactive Training

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A05T001

    Research and development to support Soldier and leader training must explore not only advanced learning environments and instructional strategies but also advanced training-development processes. In the first phase of this STTR project, GIST and HumRRO re
