  1. Low-cost Low-power Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More that 52% of the U.S. highway congestion in urban areas is a direct result of highway incidents. Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, low-cost and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems. Several solutions have been proposed but none could meet the requirements of transportation authorities. Central Signal, funded by federal agencies, has done ...

  2. Thermodynamic Modeling and Mechanical Testing for the Multiphase Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) Alloy for High Temperature (1300ºC-1500ºC) Services

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    CompuTherm, LLC in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory proposes to develop a modeling tool that can be used to understand the effect of Ti, Zr, and Hf addition on the improvement of ductility of the (Mo) phase in the Mo-Si-B system. The tool will be developed by integrating thermodynamic modeling with mechanical testing. Thermodynamic descriptions of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) syste ...

  3. Modeling & Simulation for Optimization of Heavy-Fuel Micro Rotary Engines

    SBC: CONVERGENT SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: OSD08UM6

    The Department of Defense (DoD) is currently seeking strategies to provide efficient and dependable power systems for small unmanned systems. The engines must run on heavy fuel, be lightweight, produce high horsepower and have the ability to run in extreme environmental conditions. New technologies are needed to meet the DoD’s requirements for small, heavy-fuel engines, including injection syste ...

  4. Utilizing Hardware Features for Covert Loading and Execution of Software

    SBC: CYBER DEFENSE AGENCY, LLC            Topic: OSD08IA2

    Current methods for the covert loading and execution of software typically operate at ring zero or are hypervisor based. Detecting the presence of hidden processes is a cat and mouse game when using traditional kernel-based techniques, and timing analysis and other methods have demonstrated the ability to detect the presence of a hypervisor as well. Modern hardware platforms provide opportunities ...

  5. Advanced Friction Stir Processing for Ultra-refined Microstructure Development of Aluminum 7XXX Series Alloys

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: AF07T038

    Friction Stir Processing (FSP) has been demonstrated to generate refined microstructures, resulting in improved material properties. This has several areas of application. First, FSP can enhance the formability of the particular alloy of interest. This is especially important for the superplastic forming process, where the use of FSP can be used to create superplastic behavior at high strain r ...

  6. Zero Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Aircraft Coatings

    SBC: HENTZEN COATINGS, INC.            Topic: AF071110

    In the Phase I study of Zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Aircraft Coatings (Contract Number FA8650-07-M-5029), the feasibility to formulate environmentally safe, high performance, dual-cure (UV cure followed by air dry) urethane gloss topcoat as well as conventional fast dry two-component chromate-free epoxy primer, was demonstrated by preliminary results. The 100% solids non-chromate pr ...

  7. SYREN- Acoustic Resonance Igniter

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF081066

    To meet the performance goals of the next generation of liquid hydrocarbon boost and upper stage rocket engines, the Air Force will require a new family of reliable and reusable igniters. ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a highly-reliable, non-toxic ignition system designed for use with LOX-hydrocarbon rocket engines, as well as other rocket engine cycle components such as pre-burners ...

  8. Advanced Oxidizers for Hybrid Propulsion

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD08PR3

    ORBITEC proposes to develop a high-performance, non-toxic, storable oxidizer to replace current storable oxidizers for hybrid rocket motor propulsion systems. The proposed candidate oxidizers have higher energy and oxygen content, greater density, lower volatility, and less corrosivity than the nitrogen oxides and nitric acid. In Phase I, physical properties and performance of the specific ident ...

  9. Gamma Densitometry Technique for Quantifying Void Fraction in Cavitating Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF071204

    Cavitation in liquid rocket engine turbopumps can degrade performance, damage hardware, and generate vibration that impacts the entire vehicle. Many types of cavitation can occur within the operating envelope, and their presence complicates the design process. Cavitation models remain invalidated due to the lack of direct measurements of cavitation. Presence of cavitation is typically indirectly ...

  10. Variable Thrust Liquid or Gel Propulsion for Mission Flexibility

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD08PR1

    ORBITEC proposes to develop a family of liquid/gel propellant, variable thrust propulsion systems to provide increased mission flexibility to battle planners to enhance warfighting strategies and enemy engagement capabilities. Variable thrust capability with non-toxic, space-storable propellants is also paramount for in-space applications such as rendezvous and docking Effective variable thrust ...
