  1. Advanced Hit Detection Systems

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA13015

    FreEnt Technologies, Inc. (FreEnt) and Johns Hopkins Universitys Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) are proposing a multiple-hit detection sensor called the Optical Lethality Measurement System (OLMS). This system is based on the Planar Optical Penetration Sensor (POPS) technology (originally developed and patented by APL) and prior art associated with the Blast Initiation Detector (BID). The BID is ...

  2. System of Systems Control Interactions

    SBC: GTD Unlimited LLC            Topic: MDA15T002

    In this research effort, the GTD team will design tools for efficiently specifying, representing, and analyzing the interactions between control systems in System of Systems (SoS). Three approaches will be considered and integrated. The first two are based in the rigorous application of H_8 control theory to the SoS design problem. The third will use complexity measures to generate a metric that c ...

  3. veriScan

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    The goal of the Information Assurance Run-time Auditing (IARA) Phase I project was to provide a framework that promotes the specification of software system monitoring, audit, analysis, and threat mitigation capabilities in large scale software intensive systems (LSSIS). IARA was designed to promote software assurance by incorporating novel tools that help certify the operations of untrusted soft ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of problems and challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal and/or catalytic cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied with coke formation. Coke deposits on combustor and nozzle walls reduce heat ...

  7. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to establish fundamental understanding of combustion-physical mechanisms leading to blowout, the critical evaluation of model limitations in predicting these blowout processes and the development of an improved combustion model to enable the prediction of lean blowout (LBO) in swirl-stabilized combustors. For this, high-resolution numerical simulati ...

  9. Physics-based Computationally Efficient Spray Combustion Models for LES of Multiphase Reacting Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N17AT002

    One important challenge for the reliable prediction of liquid fuel effects on the combustion in aviation combustors and augmentors is the accurate modeling of underlying physical processes, involving the evaporation of fuels, preferential vaporization, scalar mixing and ignition. LES methodologies are required to accurately capture these transient and inherently unsteady combustion processes. In t ...

  10. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...
