  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  3. GPU-Accelerated Multiphase Eulerian-Lagrangian Solver with Adaptive Mesh Refinement

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 14c

    Computer simulations of multi-phase flows are important for many applications. In the proposed work, we plan to advance Eulerian-Lagrangian methods by using Adaptive Mesh Refinement for multi-scale resolutions, and CPU-GPU parallelization to drastically reduce computing time. Eulerian-Lagrangian methods treat the gas/liquid phase as a continuum (Eulerian) fluid, and solid particulates as discrete ...

  4. Low-cost, High-capacity Lithium Ion Batteries through Modified Surface and Microstructure

    SBC: Navitas Systems, Llc            Topic: 08a

    With the promise of low cost and high capacity, silicon-based materials have emerged as the anode of the future for lithium ion batteries. Commercial success has been hindered by limited cycle life, expensive precursors and non-scalable processes. The overall approach will use low- cost microsilicon starting material and readily scalable methods to attain nanostructure amenable to high capacity an ...

  5. Fast-Track: Conductive Diamond Probes for Scanning Elecrochemical Microscopy

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    This Fast Track SBIR project aims at developing electrically insulated scanning probes suitable for high resolution electrical nano-imaging in conductive solutions. These probes, when used in atomic force microscopy, enable scanning electrochemical microscopy (AFM-SECM) to be performed. This method is increasingly important for the scientific study of applications including nano-electrodes for sol ...

  6. Infrastructure for Multiphysics Software Integration in High Performance Computing-Aided Science and Engineering

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 02c

    Many of todays most challenging problems in science and engineering involve multiple, complex, coupled physical systems requiring advanced modeling techniques. These often involve combustion or other sources of energy release, fluid-structure interaction (FSI), computational fluid dynamics (CFD) or computational structural mechanics (CSM). Large-scale modeling and simulation of multiphysics pro ...

  7. Reduced Activation Tungsten for Fusion

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Tungsten and its alloys are candidates for plasma facing component heat sinks and armor due to their low sputtering rate, high melting point, high thermal conductivity, high strength at elevated temperatures and low tritium inventory. However during service, the plasma facing components will be exposed to a high flux of 14MeV neutrons from the plasma and low energy neutrons from the blanket, whic ...

  8. Computational Materials Design of Castable SX Ni-based Superalloys for IGT Blade Components

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 12c

    In order to raise the inlet gas temperatures to improve thermal efficiency of industrial gas turbines (IGT), turbine blade materials are required to have superior creep rupture resistance. Ni-base single crystal (SX) blades have higher creep strength in comparison with directionally solidified blades, and are widely used in aerospace engines. However, their use in IGTs, which require larger size c ...

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 36c

    Future particle physics experiments at the high energy frontier, such as LHC, HL-LHC, ILC, CLIC or Multi-TeV Muon Collider, will all require silicon detectors capable of reconstructing charged particle trajectories with high accuracy in the presence of significant high occupancy. These experiments will impose stringent demands on the data links to transfer the data from the silicon detector to the ...

  10. Computational Design and Development of Low Cost, High Strength, Low Loss Soft Magnetic Materials for Traction Drive Motor Applications

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 06g

    QuesTek proposes to apply its Materials By Design approach to design a high performance, low cost soft magnetic material capable of achieving significant cost savings to approach the DOE motor cost target of $4.7/kW in 2020. In order to meet the ambitious motor targets, traction motors in electric vehicles (EV) must become even more compact, light-weight, and highly efficient. For a compact de ...
