  1. Development of Next-Generation Composite Flywheel Design for Shock and Vibration Tolerant, High Density Rotating Energy Storage

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N13AT022

    The university and industrial team assembled by MiTi proposes to demonstrate the viability of using an advanced low cost out of autoclave composites manufacturing process for application to high speed composite flywheel energy storage systems. Besides conducting appropriate materials testing of the new process, testing of a high-speed titanium flywheel simulator system weighing over 200 lbs will b ...

  2. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System Software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: N13AT014

    Software provides critical functionality to the DoD, as well as to the communications, banking, and logistics industries we rely on. Runtime monitoring is now routinely applied to quickly identify and limit attacks. However, monitors have difficulty distinguishing good behavior from bad because intended application behavior varies widely. This proposal describes SMAC (Scenario-based Modeling & Che ...

  3. Novel Screen Approach to Inactivate Whole Viral Vaccines by Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    Future vaccine development should focus on rapid upscale production, long-term and broad protection, and sufficient global distribution to prevent and reduce the impact of many infectious diseases and potential epidemics. Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a novel whole-microorganism vaccine inactivation strategy involving high-throughput screen of extensive radio-protectant matrices and radiati ...

  4. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  5. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...

  6. Improved Turbulence Modelling Across Disparate Length Scales for Naval Computational Fluid Dynamics Applications

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: N15AT002

    Computational Sciences LLC will collaborate with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to develop and validate a stand-alone computational module that naturally accounts for the effects of turbulence. Such fluctuations and transitions may be associated with compressible flows and boundary layer interactions. The module will be designed for implementation in to existing legacy codes for use in ...

  7. Grid-Spacing-Independent and Discretization-Order-Independent Simulation for Naval Single-Phase and Two-Phase Flow Applications

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT002

    Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving method and a new approach to LES turbulence modeling ...

  8. Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) Aerodynamic Modeling for Rotary Wing Platforms

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: N15AT009

    The technical requirements for the simulation of a helicopter towing an aircraft while performing a MAD mission are identified. Several technical solutions to achieve high stability during the mission are presented. In Phase I, a simulation will be set up to begin trade studies on the proposed mission. Also, if needed, flight tests will be conducted in Phase I, as proof-of-concept validation. In P ...

  9. Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-Doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: NGIMAT, LLC            Topic: N15AT010

    In this STTR effort nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky to develop a new process for manufacturing scandia-doped tungsten powder for use in vacuum tube cathode devices. While a significant amount of research over the last several decades has shown promise for scandate cathode materials, reliable manufacturing processes that enable commercialization of this technology have remained ...

  10. Ultra scaling of SPAD arrays for high-speed laser ranging

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: N15AT011

    Ultrasensitive detection of visible light has a wide range of applications, including laser ranging and free-space optical communications. Ultimate sensitivity is achieved when individual return photons are counted with high probabilities of detection, low probabilities of false counts, and high bandwidth. Previously, Vacuum photomultiplier tubes provided good single photon detection sensitivities ...
