  2. 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 ...

  3. Reducing Complex Physico-Chemical Model Systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A05T018

    An important and fundamental challenge in science and engineering is the need to understand the system output variables (model predictions, measured observables) and their relation to the system¡¦s input variables (model inputs, specified experimental conditions). This project proposes to address this problem through the development of a family of numerical tools for implementing High Dimension ...

  4. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The Army has identified solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power systems as a potential solution to a variety of power needs ranging from roughly 0.1 - 100 kW. Reformed JP-8, the Army logistics fuel, can be used as the feed, but the fuel sulfur content must first be reduced to 10 ppm. We plan to test a novel ultrasonic slurry reactor as part of a compact desulfurization process for treatment of sulfur ...

  5. RFID sensor for Detection of Biowarfare Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF07T016

    The use of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) coupled to biological warfare agent (BWA) detection systems provides a means of strategically placing sensors in the field and then reading the threat at a distance. The challenges are in the integration of specific, sensitive detectors with RFID systems in a manner that allows miniaturization to the nanoscale, facilitating distribution with a mini ...

  6. Securing Databases in Army MANETS

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: OSD06NC3

    This proposal suggests research on security issues for mobile databases running on a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). It will explore both state of the art commercial systems and advanced research issues for mobile security management. The first step will involve an extensive study of the commercial off-the-shelf technology. This study will identify the resources that can be used for addressing secu ...

  7. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers and paints in space are subjected to a barrage of incident oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons and ions. The oxygen atoms and photons can erode the polymer and the ions can lead to the buildup of static charge. This Phase I proposal will use atomic layer deposition (ALD) methods to coat polymers with various conformal films to protect the polymer and prevent the buildup of static charge. ...

  8. Silicon-Based Photonic Crystal Lasers

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: AF05T013

    ALTAIR Center in cooperation with the University of Rochester proposes to develop the first silicon-based photonic crystal laser diode. The photonic crystal microcavity forms gain region of the laser diode. This enhances the system efficiency. The laser operating either in bandgap edge emitting mode with enhanced density of states or using defect mode in the photonic crystal structure will exhibit ...

  10. High Critical Current in Metal Organic Derived YBCO Films

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T009

    Second Generation (2G) High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wire based on the YBCO coated conductor is being developed for new military and commercial applications not accessible to First Generation (1G) HTS wires. Although a critical current (Ic) of nearly 300A/cm-w (77K, sf) has been obtained in 10-meter lengths of 2G conductors, significant improvement in the Ic of practical conductors is re ...
