  1. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...

  3. High Fidelity Obscurant Modeling for Sensor Simulations

    SBC: Simulation Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT004

    A technique that enables new methods of obscurant modeling with faster rendering while maintaining or improving physical fidelity is proposed. The proposed technique not only exhibits the statistics of voxel based obscurants, but matches real-world data as well. The main objective from Phase II efforts will be a further refinement of the flow field and particle technique of generating physically c ...

  5. Unified Flow Solver for transient high altitude events with mixed continuum and rarefied flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A13005

    CFDRC proposes to develop a computational tool for transient, high-altitude events with mixed continuum and free molecular flow regimes. The proposed technology builds upon the Unified Flow Solver (UFS) previously developed by CFDRC, which will be leveraged with several new features for transient chemically reacting two-phase, gas-particle flows interacting with multiple bodies in relative motion ...

  6. Innovative Semi-Active Laser (SAL) Signal Processing Techniques in Noisy Environments

    SBC: Gleason Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12084

    This proposed Phase II effort is a continuation of the SBIR Phase I contract (W31P4Q-13-0014) which identified several potential areas of improvement in signal processing for semi-active laser seekers in noisy, dirty-battlefield or countermeasure environments. A list of innovative processing algorithms to address these issues was down-selected to the four highest pay-off innovations: Smart Track ...

  7. A universal framework for non-deteriorating time-domain numerical algorithms in Maxwell's electrodynamics

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A13AT008

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves on unbounded regions. Numerical accuracy and/or stability may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of artificial outer boundaries. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this problem by employing the Huygens'principl ...

  8. Advanced Waveform Design and Signal Processing

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: A13055

    A novel signal/waveform model and signal processing algorithm suite that enhances radar systems performance, in the presence of noise and high clutter environments, and its associated discrimination capabilities is proposed. The algorithm allows for extraction of target information in range, azimuth and elevation angles while achieving very fine resolution and high accuracy. Target information at ...

  9. Non-Lethal Munitions for Defeating Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A13058

    Proposed research will address the phenomenology and develop a technical concept of buried IED defeat through the creation of low-frequency electromagnetic fields in the ground by the LF current injection. The technical concept will be based on creating pulsed low-frequency currents in the ground layer using either explosive or capacitor driven pulsed current source and then employing the key prin ...

  10. Innovative Rugged High Power RF Sources for Compact RF Warheads

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12062

    This work describes an innovative approach to producing high power RF suitable for use in Directed Energy Weapons, based on a"Frozen Wave Generator"as the RF converter. This technique represents a major improvement over existing state of the art by eliminating the need for multiple light activated custom solid state switches and the associated laser trigger generator. The key item, an ultra-fast s ...
