  1. Aging and Surveillance Technology for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ASI proposes an innovative and numerically-efficient approach to the modeling of crack propagation in solid propellant rocket motors.  Our technology uses a coupled fluid-structure interaction model that is enhanced with an embedded grid capability.  Such an approach eliminates virtually all of the bottlenecks that occur in traditional approaches, through elimination of the re-gridding that must ...

  2. Geospatial Intelligence Analyst Knowledge Preservation Tools


    This proposal describes a specific problem within the Intelligence community. Because of a lack of GEOINT tools for capturing storing and delivering expert knowledge from experienced analysts, new analysts have difficulty in quickly gaining the level of skill that those expert analysts possess.  Recent work in cognitive science has shown that engineers presented with knowledge from domain experts ...

  3. Model-Free Control System for Scramjet Applications

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF083121

    Flow fluctuations in the flame-holder cavity affect its stable operation that can lead to degradation of its performance. Efficient cavity operations can be enhanced through active control of injection of air and fuel mixtures. We propose to design and validate a novel Model-Free Direct (feedback) Control system to ensure stable cavity operation in the subsonic regime with smooth transitions to su ...

  4. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    ABSTRACT: The proposed project will remove the computational bottleneck in the currently adopted numerical treatment of exterior 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. Existing simulators introduce computationally expensive and nonphysical magnetic diffusion in the exterior region. In contrast, our approach is physically and mathematically rigorous and dramatically improves ...

  5. Integrated wide-bandgap semiconductor photoconductive switch with a terahertz antenna

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF073004

    ABSTRACT: Digital Fusion Solutions and its partners North Carolina State University and Kyma Technologies will undertake the development of a wide band-gap (WBG) semiconductor based laser induced semiconductor switch (LSS). By leveraging expertise in fields of semiconductor manufacturing, antenna design, and physics in the terahertz frequency regime a down selection of materials will be done with ...

  6. Integrated Overset Gridding and Grid Assembly Capability using MiniCAD System

    SBC: Amplicode, Inc.            Topic: AF083259

    Overset grid methods have a lot of potential to reduce the workload and turnaround time in mesh generation significantly. However, overset grid generation is often not very simple. In general, the size of elements in overlapping volume of overset grids should not be changed drastically to avoid orphan points that result in poor interpolation results. Recent advances in developing generalized grid ...

  7. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  8. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: INVARIANT CORP.            Topic: AF081051

    In contrast to the typical single aperture systems found in weapons today, arthropod compound eyes are multi-aperture optical systems. The compound eye has evolved into many forms, each one of which is specifically adapted to the optical environment of the insect or crustacean that it resides upon. The applications of artificial compound eye sensors range from highly complex applications such as t ...

  9. Infrared Projection Systems for Wide Field of View Sensor Testing

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF083255

    This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation''''''''s Phase I SBIR proposal for the design and fabrication of an infrared projection system for wide field of view (WFOV) sensor testing in a cryo-vacuum environment. The WFOV projector system is designed to generate complex dynamic scenes overlaid with precision unresolved point-source targets. The projected scenes are capable of simulating l ...

  10. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...
