  1. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  2. NOVEL MICROFLUIDIC BASED BIO-INSPIRED BATTERY

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: ARMY03T22

    Our Phase II goal is to develop (model, design, fabricate and test) a miniaturized biofuel cell capable of generating energy from biomass to power the OFW sensor suite. Phase I goals were successfully met by demonstrating a prototype using glucose as fuel. In contrast to conventional technologies, this biobattery promises to be compact/lightweight, require little/no logistical support (re-supply ...

  3. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF03T022

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible AI system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflict and the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  4. Heat Reduction in Semiconductors by Phonon Annihilation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop multiscale simulation tools for coupled carrier-phonon transport in micro/optoelectronic devices and to explore novel concepts of phonon engineering for heat removal and termal management in advancedsemiconductor devices. The phase I effort resulted in a prototype software modules for multiscale simulation of phonon dynamics in LD semiconductors and prov ...

  5. Remote Sensing and Directed Energy Applications of Femtosecond, Terawatt Lasers.

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    TDC/UDRI will undertake development of a physics based model for the propagation of terawatt, femtosecond laser pulses through the atmosphere. Previous experiments and theoretical results have made it clear that a new approach must be taken in order tohave an unambiguous understanding of this high power ultrashort laser pulse propagation problem in the atmosphere. Simple extensions of the nonline ...

  6. Innovative Processing Methods for Superconducting Materials

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Precursor materials for superconductors such as Nb3Sn and Nb3Al include low melting point components. Therefore, conventional extrusion processes with large area reductions are not possible because adiabatic heating raises the temperature above the melting point. In certain circumstances, hydrostatic extrusion could be used, as it can be operated at low enough speeds to allow the deformation hea ...

  7. Development of a Portable Breath Analysis System Based on a Novel Electronic Nose Microsensor

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF04T017

    Significant recent research has shown that breath biomarkers are excellent indicators of oxidative stress caused by conditions ranging from radiation exposure to COPD. Current techniques for collection, concentration, and analysis of exhaled breath do not support real-time analysis, or require complex and bulky equipment. Streamline Automation, LLC will develop a portable Breath BioDetector in p ...

  8. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An enabling technology for the further advancement of gelled propulsion is the development of tools to render the development of propellant formulation ...

  9. Low-cost, multi-spectral frequency augmenter for exo-atmospheric ballistic missile targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    A specialty coating, adaptable to existing and future modular MDA target systems and survivable in exo-atmospheric environments, may be achieved by combining contemporary indium tin oxide (ITO) appliqués onto a surface capable of achieving luminescence and hue levels found in adjacent backgrounds. This active coating will exploit known vulnerabilities found in interceptor infrared and visual scan ...

  10. Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T021

    A new material and processing technology is proposed that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing lightweight mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, and DoD-sponsored space programs. There is a significant amount of research devoted to developing materials and processes for space-born mirrors and ground test use ...
