  1. Radio Frequency Infrared (RF-IR) Data Fusion

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA12T002

    Under the Phase I effort, a set of algorithms were developed/enhanced that, when integrated into a fused track and characterization schema, are capable of realizing the full potential performance afforded by the battle manager having multiple sensors. dBWager is a multi-sensor measurement correlation algorithm that provides highly accurate state vector estimates and provides the correlation of e ...

  2. A universal framework for non-deteriorating time-domain numerical algorithms in Maxwell's electrodynamics

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A13AT008

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves on unbounded regions. Numerical accuracy and/or stability may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of artificial outer boundaries. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this problem by employing the Huygens' principle an ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Oriented Enzymatic Electrodes with Enhanced Charge Transfer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A12aT011

    Our objective is to significantly increase the electron transfer efficiency of the enzyme-catalyzed reactions at electrodes and thereby establish a new state-of-the-art power source for military and commercial systems. The approach is to develop a novel method for orienting enzymes immobilized onto the electrode surface that results in facilitated charge transfer. The proposed bio-electrode techn ...

  6. Computational Model for Electrode Erosion by High-Pressure Moving Arcs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF11BT25

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop theoretical models for electrode erosion in high-pressure arcs and incorporate them into computational tools for simulations of arc heaters. The complexity of the electrode material removal process is associated with the multi-phase nature of the arc-electrode interactions, melting and vaporization of the electrodes near the arc foot. Available mod ...

  7. First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Molecular Modeling Driven Design of High Density Energetic Materials

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N12AT023

    Development of next generation energetic materials has been slow primarily due to a lack of fundamental understanding of the physics and chemistry of these materials. The strategy for development historically has been a trial-and-error experimental approach which possesses considerable risk of failure. With the advent of high speed computers and sophisticated molecular modeling techniques, it is n ...
