  1. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  2. A Robust Compact Portable Instrument Package for the Complete Spatiotemporal Measurement of a Single Ultrashort Laser Pulse

    SBC: Swamp Optics, LLC            Topic: N171085

    We will develop a simple, lightweight, compact, robust, and inexpensive instrument package that will report essentially all ultrashort-laser-pulse characteristics. It will yield, on a single shot, the pedestal power and complete pulse spatiotemporal field, E(x,y,z,t)i.e. all possible pulse information, including pulse-shape stability, even if multi-shot operation is required. It will include user- ...

  3. Advanced Silicon Diode Switch for HPRF Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT023

    The ultimate goal of the phase II effort is to build Si-based PCSS 10kV-modules and compare coupling of those modules to different microwave radiation technologies. The microwave radiating technologies include at least non-linear transmission lines and direct drive antenna; comparisons and system-level tradeoffs will be identified through normalized field measurements.

  4. Electrochemical Modeling of Anodic Metal-Rich Primers

    SBC: Corrdesa, LLC            Topic: N162129

    We propose a methodology for modeling and computationally optimizing anodic metal-filled primers using extensions of approaches that we already employ for corrosion analysis. Modeling will be developed using Star CCM+, a Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) platform from CD-Adapco. We presently use this for corrosion analysis when we need to incorporate computational fluid dynamics to take the variab ...

  5. Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning System (GPS) Satellite Users


    In Phase II, Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to complete the development of a real-time nowcast of ionospheric scintillation impacts on GPS users. Continuing its partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, PRA will implement real-time production of a map of ionospheric scintillation parameters over the United States using real-time data streamed from the National Geo ...

  6. Team Performance Metrics for Command and Control of Unmanned Systems

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N122137

    The increase in unmanned systems, also known as UxVs, on the battlefield creates the need for coordinated activity among multiple UxVs that work effectively in collaboration with the Warfighters who must be able to rapidly and easily command their operations, insure their compliance with intent in a highly unpredictable world, and receive needed situation awareness (SA) from their sensors. In orde ...

  7. Development of High Energy and Power Density Solid State Supercapacitors

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N131020

    Many military and commercial applications have turned to power electronics to run a variety of systems efficiently, quietly, cheaply, and precisely. Therefore, there is an urgent need for efficient energy storage systems with both high energy and power densities. Supercapacitors have gained substantial attention for these applications since they offer outstanding advantages over conventional capac ...

  8. Unmanned Aerial System Operator Selection Tools

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N131082

    Traditional selection and training practices are essential initial selection tools that show some general levels of predictive validity overall. However, current Navy selection tools are not good predictors of performance for Navy air system AVOs. In our targeted solution, we utilize proprietary methodologies that combine standard methods for selection and training of industry personnel, such as t ...

  9. New Affordable Energy Storage Technologies for Power Grids and Micro-Grids

    SBC: American Maglev Technology of Florida, Inc.            Topic: N11AT028

    Compared to Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries, which have earned the largest share of the battery storage market, flywheel energy storage systems (FESS) offer significant advantages in cycle life, power density and turnaround efficiency for short charge/discharge times, but normally at a higher cost. The goal for this Phase II program is to develop a FESS design that has lower acquisition cost than a ...

  10. Improving Team Cognitive Readiness through the Multi-Agent System for Targeting Team Mental Models (MAST-TMM)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR7

    Navy command and control (C2) personnel must make decisions about events and activity they are not able to directly perceive. They must interpret information represented on an interface or over a communication device into a mental picture of the relevant environment - a mental model of the current situation. Sustaining high levels of team performance in this environment is difficult. A tool to pre ...
