  1. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  2. Malware Understanding using Dependence Graphs, Clustering, and Mining.

    SBC: NOVASHIELD, Inc.            Topic: A11aT020

    The number of distinct malware being released into the wild is growing at an alarming rate. Some IT security companies are seeing more than 5,000 new malware instances each day. IT security companies can no longer keep pace with this deluge using manual, labor-intensive malware analysis techniques for generating specifications that detect them. There is a need for proven and deployable automate ...

  3. Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10BT047

    Orbital Technologies Corporation (ORBITEC) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) propose to develop the Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS), a system which will produce liquid alkene-based transportation fuels from lignocellulosic biomass. Specifically, we propose to investigate the production of levulinic acid (LA) and/or gamma-valerolactone (GVL) from lignocellulose; both of t ...

  4. Innovative Methods for the Conversion of Biomass to Short Chain Alkenes for the Production of Renewable Jet Fuels

    SBC: C5-6 TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N10BT047

    C5-6 Technologies and University of Wisconsin Stevens Point scientists will develop a bacterial strain that economically ferments sugars into isoprene, a platform chemical that will play a central role in the future bio-economy. UWSP scientists have genetically engineered E. coli to produce isoprene, a precursor of B-pinene and other fuels, via a novel pathway that has significant potential produc ...

  5. Monolithic Scalable Mid-Infrared Phase-Locked Laser Array

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N11AT011

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.8-4.2 micron-emitting, active-photonic-crystal (APC) quantum-cascade (QC) lasers by using passive phase-locking in a monolithic structure in order to achieve multiwatt-range, diffraction-limited powers; and 2) the development of the key crystal- growth processes for realizing the proposed APC QC laser: the growth and characterizatio ...

  6. Synthesis of New, Insensitive Energetic Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT034

    Advanced ordnance and propulsion systems of the modern era still utilize vintage energetic materials. These old generation materials, such as RDX and HMX, cannot meet today"s more stringent safety and environmental requirements. Unfortunately, in newer compounds created to replace them, the performance falls with the sensitivity. The ORBITEC team proposes the development of new energetic materials ...

  8. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    In this Phase I STTR program, ORBITEC and University of Wisconsin-Madison teamed to develop a simultaneous particle image velocimetry and thermometry (PIV+T) diagnostic for reacting flows. In applications such as gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, and rocket engines, the dynamics of the turbulent combustion necessitate measurement of both temperature and velocity fields to understa ...

  9. Improved Tire Technology for Special Operations Vehicles

    SBC: RESILIENT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM11004

    The objective of this proposal is to analyze existing patent-pending nonpneumatic tires ("NPTs") to determine which designs and materials are best scalable across the full suite of the Family of Special Operations Vehicles Program. Resilient Technologies has produced functional NPT prototypes for Light Transportable All-Terrain Vehicles, and will apply the knowledge developed during the ATV NPT d ...

  10. RF Harvesting for Anti Tamper (AT) Techniques

    SBC: Micro Optics Technologies, Inc            Topic: AF103183

    A system is designed to extract energy from background RF energy in the ambient due to radio and wireless communication sources. This energy is harvested on a continuous basis and stored on-board to provide power for anti tamper systems. This eliminates the need for maintenance of battery sources that would otherwise be needed to power the device electronics. With a maintenance free power source p ...
