  1. Innovative improvements to High-Frequency Simulation Methods for Installed Antenna Performance

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N103197

    Delcross proposes to systematically validate the Savant and Savant-Hybrid ray tracing solvers for a wide variety of installed antenna configurations, including far-field patterns, near-field distributions, and antenna-to-antenna coupling. Reference benchmarks will be developed from full-wave solvers, measurements, and analytic solutions. When shortcomings in existing methods/algorithms are identif ...

  2. Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: N10AT032

    OAE has proved to be an important measurement for hearing conservation programs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal with a miniature microphone. One impediment to OAE testing on a large scale, such as in military hearing conservation programs, is the lack of a high-quality, reliable ear-probes which house the miniature m ...

  3. Innovative Analysis Tool for Damage Growth From Loaded Composite Fastener Holes

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N092095

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team members, University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI), Lockheed Martin (LM) Aero, and Sikorsky Aircraft will develop an add-on toolkit for Abaqus with high fidelity prediction of residual strength and life of laminated composite structures with fastener holes. A discrete crack network model for damage prediction developed under the ...

  4. Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures Subjected to Impulsive Dynamic Loading

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    A software toolkit for Abaqus (XSHELL) will be developed for fracture evaluation and load deflection prediction of welded aluminum ship structures subjected to impulsive loading. The mesh independent crack description and fracture energy dissipation will be achieved in XSHELL through the implementation of two overlay elements with an embedded cohesive interaction along an arbitrary crack segment w ...

  5. Radio Frequency (RF) System Performance and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N103202

    For manned and unmanned vehicles in current military operating environments, many adversary and civilian platforms exist that can be considered non-traditional, unconventional, or otherwise unaccounted for in the design of these vehicles. These unconventional and nontraditional aircraft, ship, and boat targets pose unique challenges to radar system designers, analysts, and operators. To aid in the ...

  6. Development of Electronic Controlled Fuel Injector and Pump Suitable for 5-20 Horsepower Diesel Cycle Engines

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: N10AT033

    Phase II will enable KBEI to demonstrate a complete high pressure Micro Injection System on a Navy UAV engine in a laboratory environment. While the Micro Injectors and Micro Pump have been successfully proven at lower pressures, this STTR program has facilitated research and development of a higher pressure injection system designed for use with heavy fuels. At the conclusion of the Phase II ST ...

  7. Using Automated Abstractions to Classify System States for Software Health Monitoring

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 9040477

    In most critical software systems, a state that is partially visible through values passed across interfaces contains information that could determine the health of the software system, and whether a failure is likely in the future. Some of this information behaves in a continuous fashion, e.g., the available memory or disk space is easily interpreted to monitor system health. Other values are nom ...

  8. Recycling of Greenhouse Gases to Fuels & Chemicals

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: D

    "Technologies that prevent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission from natural and man-made sources are needed to address the environmental and human health implications of climate change. One approach is to capture the GHG emissions and secure them in long term storage, i.e., carbon sequestration. However, current carbon sequestration technologies may: A) produce undesirable by products; B) contamina ...

  9. Development of a Scalable, Low-Cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop and ready for commercialization a scalable, low-cost process for purification of water containing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) using anodic oxidation with boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD®) thin films. Resent research demonstrated that there is considerable potential for the development of electrochemica ...

  10. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...
