  1. POWER: Political Will Expert Reasoning Tool

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD07T002

    There are many challenges in addressing the problem of Political Will. The first is developing a clear, complete, consensual definition of Political Will driven by both theory and field practice. But a larger challenge is deconstructing and unpacking the Political Science and Social Science concept of Political Will into its complex constituent elements in order to arrive at their computational, r ...

  2. Holistic Analysis, Visualization, & Characterization Assessment Tool (HAVCAT)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    In today's complex, multi-dimensional, coalition, effects-based campaigns; commanders must be able to "see" the situation in their decision making tasks. The modern fighting force is privy to an enormous array of intelligence gathering, database, and sensor sources of information to the point of over-saturation. Methods for visualizing the information in an intuitive manner must be established for ...

  3. Protective conformal coatings for spacecraft polymers and paints

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF07T011

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to further develop its non-line of sight, energetic coating system to deposit protective thin film coatings for polymers in the low earth orbit. Numerous satellites costing $25M to $1B reside in LEO and the lifetime time of the polymers used in these assets is limited by atomic oxygen (AO) erosion, UV/VUV damage and the negative effects of static charging. ...

  4. Algorithm Development for Reconfigurable Computing Architectures

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: AF07T017

    Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are at the core of Air Force scientific priorities in air vehicle design. The goal of this STTR is to provide unprecedent computational power to the solution of large-scale PDE problems in 3D through the use of reconfigurable computing linear equation solvers based on iterative methods. The result of this research will be packaged in a system that, by the e ...

  5. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: AF07T021

    In order for collaborative Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) to become a viable mission for an ever-expanding heterogonous UAV fleet, UAV autonomy must achieve autonomy level four (i.e. on-board route re-planning) and beyond (i.e. increasingly complex group coordination), so that operators are not overwhelmed with routine operational decisions. For UAV platform routing, current ...

  6. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF05T010

    This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to chemistry, where quantum chemical methods must be extremely accurate to yield reliable rate constants. Yet u ...

  7. Advanced Finite Element Model Development for Characterization and Mitigation of Bone Conducted Sound Transmission in High Noise Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06T035

    Improved understanding of mechanisms controlling bone conduction (BC) sound transmission, especially with respect to acoustic excitation, is urgently needed in order to develop more effective hearing protection in extremely high noise fields. The Phase I research program made great progress toward this goal by yielding new insights into a mechanism believed to be a significant contributor to BC s ...

  8. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  9. Electromagnetic Launching for Affordable Agile Access to Space

    SBC: ADVANCED MAGNET LAB, INC.            Topic: AF05T001

    The conceptual design of a novel, hypersonic electromagnetic launch system has been developed. Phase-1 assumed a 100-kg projectile leaving the launcher at 7,000 m/sec. The projectile is propelled and levitated by electromagnetic forces inside a tube filled with low pressure helium. A controlled acceleration profile, fully adjustable to the requirements of various missions, is used to reach 5000 ge ...

  10. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...
