  1. Maximizing the utility of high-resolution ensemble meteorological forecasts for planning and responding to hazardous releases

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N06T037

    The two primary motivations for this work are: First, to provide forecasts of dispersion of a hazardous release and associated uncertainty (or “error bars”) based on the available ensemble MET data. Second, to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool for decision makers supporting both deterministic and ensemble forecast MET data as well as resulting dispersion model forecasts. To achieve ...

  2. Reducing Complex Physico-Chemical Model System

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A05T018

    High-Dimensional Model Representation (HDMR) is a technique for efficiently representing the input/output behavior of a complex system. HDMR is a useful tool for scientists and engineers in two common circumstances. The first is when a computationally-exp

  3. Miniature Generator Power for Advanced Prostheses

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A06T031

    The capabilities of current prostheses are substantially limited by the lack of suitable high energy density portable power. Specifically, current myoelectric prostheses utilize rechargeable batteries, which provide typically less than 10% of the daily energy required for typical activities of daily living. Such limitations in the energy source significantly limit the utility of these prostheses ...

  4. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  5. New Generation Hybrid Carbon/Ceramic Nanocomposites

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF05T023

    Based on in-depth experience with advanced optical ceramics, nano-particle coating, nanoceramic sintering and superplasticity deformation, in this program, Agiltron, Inc. and Florida International University propose to develop next generation airframe and engine materials made of CNT/alumina nano-composites. The proposed approach uniquely combines low-cost and potentially large scale technology of ...

  6. Visible Wavelength Negative Index Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05T015

    Recent development in negative index materials has triggered great interest in imaging through a flat lens, and perhaps even ¡ superlensing¡": exceeding the classical diffraction limit by capturing both evanescent and propagating wave components. Though d

  8. Delamination Resistant Coating System for Zinc Sulfide Domes and Windows, Utilizing a Compliant Layer.

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T014

    Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) is the most practical material for infrared transparent domes and windows operating at long wave infrared wavelength. Hard outer coatings have been applied to ZnS to protect it from rain and sand erosion. Theoretical analysis of multi-layer coatings suggests that a compliant layer between the hard outer coating and the ZnS surface may improve resistance to rain impact damage. In ...

  9. Polymer-ceramic Nanocomposites for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    We propose to develop new polymer-ceramic nanoparticle composites for high power capacitors. The new approach combines the leading-edge nanomaterials development and manufacturing at Agiltron will transfer the high dielectric constant fillers to our new nanodielctrics with extremely improved breakdown strength and extensively lowered dielectric loss. We expect to fully overcome the problems of cu ...

  10. High-Power and Low Loss Mid-Wave IR Fiber-Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T039

    Agiltron, in collaboration with Tufts University, proposes to realize MWIR fiberoptic switches that meet all the required performance specifications for the new type of compact airborne IRCM applications. The approach is based on our extensive experience in volume production of fiberoptic switches of industrial leading performance as well as in-house chalcogenide glass fabrication capability. Th ...
