  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. Viscous Cartesian Flow Solver with AMR Capabilities for Automated Flow Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T008

    The goal of this project is to develop and leverage the novel Normal Ray Refinement (NRR) methodology investigated in Phase I, and to apply it to an efficient and robust prototype adaptive Cartesian solver for automated simulations of viscous flows. The NRR approach will provide a substantial reduction in the number of grid points in viscous boundary layers and will employ adaptive normal ray plac ...

  3. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    In the Phase I study, IntraMicron found that Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) increased effective thermal conductivity by 3~12 times, improved selectivity and product yield, and significantly reduced the Balance of Plant (BOP) compared with packed beds; Ceramatec prepared novel catalysts for highly selective jet fuel production and designed a FTS modular reactor with fast external heat tran ...

  4. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters rely on technological equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a system-level opti ...

  5. Low NOx Commerical Burner

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70848T02-II Fuel oil is an important part of the energy supply mix for commercial and large residential buildings, but the development of low emission, high performance burners has received little attention. Recent advances in recirculating burner development with low pressure air atomization provide an opportunity to introduce such improved systems to the market. This project will develop a ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible A/I 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 conflictand the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  9. Using Electrical Resistivity Techniques to Monitor the Long-Term Health of Sub-Surface Reactive Barriers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    72571B03-I Reactive subsurface barriers for groundwater remediation require systems to ensure that the barrier is continuous along its length (without any breaks or holes) and that it continues to remediate the groundwater passing through the barrier. Electrical resistivity measurements made within the barrier wall offer the potential to reliably address these needs in a low-cost manner. This ...

  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 ...
