  1. A Framework for Robust Engineering of Large-Scale Distributed Real-Time Systems

    SBC: L&S COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF083047

    Our Phase I project addressed the challenge of creating a new paradigm for the development of software in which developers evaluate the performance of software architecture and design options early when it can have the greatest impact. Our vision moves software performance analysis from an isolated set of tools that require laborious manual transfer of information among design and analysis tools t ...

  3. A New Hyperspectral Image Capture Tool for Evaluating TBI

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD09H23

    Traumatic Brain Injury accounts for 1525% of all combat casualties and on today"s battlefield, 30-40% of all injuries have a head injury component. The implication of TBI related injuries on the fighting force is that unit readiness is slowed as a result of diminished soldier reaction time and behavioral issues that may reduce the soldier"s responsiveness. Current methods of TBI diagnosis vary f ...

  4. A NEW SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENT FOR BIOGENETIC TOXICITY TESTING

    SBC: North Star Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASED ON OUR RESEARCH, WE FEEL THAT THE STAINING PROPERTIES OF SITS (4-ACETOAMIDO-4'-ISOTHIOCYANOSTILBENE 2,2' DISULPHONIC ACID), A REAGENT WHICH ENABLES IN SITU VISUALIZATION AND DISCRIMINATION AMONG LIVING, DYING AND DEAD CELLS, MAKE IT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR USE IN AN APPROPRIATELY DESIGNED INSTRUMENT. WE PROPOSE AN AUTOMATED VIDEO MICROSCOPE WITH MEMORY AND POSSIBLE REMOTE VIEWING CAPABILITY. IT ...

  5. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Energy issues have been at the center of the national security debate and as the largest single consumer of energy in the United States, the DOD recognizes the need to reduce its reliance on fossil fuel. For a number of years, the department has been making steady progress at decreasing its fossil fuel footprint which has seen solar energy and the use of photovoltaic cells emerge as a ...

  6. A Novel Long-Life Battery Power Supply

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: AF103065

    ABSTRACT: Highly reliable power supply technologies are needed for future arming and fuzing system designs. These power supplies should be able to operate after a long dormant period of up to twenty years. A novel battery power supply is proposed for this purpose. The proposed battery utilizes a solid state electrolyte which would have indefinite shelf life. High peak specific power will be p ...

  7. ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES FOR USE IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF ALL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: 1) HOW GOOD ARE THE NUMERICAL ANSWERS OBTAINED IN A COMPUTATION? AND 2) HOW CAN THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWERS BE OBTAINED FOR A FIXED AND LIMITED COMPUTATIONAL EFFORT, BUDGET, OR COMPUTING CAPABILITY? IN GENERAL TERMS THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE 1) TO DETERMINE RELIABLE A-POSTERIORI ESTIMATES OF ERROR ...

  8. ADVANCED CUTTER DEVELOPMENT FOR EGRESS BORING MACHINES

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT EGRESS BORING MACHINES, UTILIZING CONVENTIONAL 17-INCH DISC CUTTERS, ARE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING MAXIMUM ADVANCE RATES OF 80 FEET PER HOUR, BECAUSE OF CUTTER LIMITATIONS. THE AIR FORCE HAS DETERMINED THAT NATIONAL NEEDS REQUIRE SUBSTANTIALLY FASTER BORING RATES. ALSO, IT IS CRUCIAL THAT THE CUTTERS BE CAPABLE OF COMPLETING THE EGRESS SHAFT, WITHOUT ANY MAINTENANCE/REPLACEMENT OF THE CUTTERS. ...

  9. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF093014

    ABSTRACT: The proposed phase II effort would work to establish new advanced insulation techniques and their corresponding design guidelines that could be employed to reduce the volume existing pulsed power systems, improve their reliability, and possibly improve their mechanical integrity. Additionally, the design of a new pulser is proposed, which will be based on the insulation schemes identifi ...

  10. ADVANCED FUEL CELLS

    SBC: Treadwell Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE MOST CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE RADIO FREQUENCY POWER SUPPLY FOR THE NEUTRAL PARTICLE BEAM INTEGRATED EXPERIMENT IS ITS POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO. IN ADDITION, THE SPACE-QUALIFIED 45V POWER SUPPLY MUST BE ABLE TO SUPPLY 27,000 AMP PULSES DOWN TO 350 MICROSECONDS WITH ONLY A 2 - 3% VOLTAGE DROP. PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE FUEL CELLS HAVE POTENTIALLY THE HIGHEST POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO OF ANY TYPE OF FUEL C ...
