  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. 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 ...

  7. Ionospheric Imaging Using NVIS

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: AF07T031

    Real-time estimation of relevant ionospheric parameters is required for military applications and to further our understanding of space weather and its societal and technological impacts. Currently, a major limitation in the modeling of ionospheric physics is a complete lack of input data measurements. The HF transmitter/receiver system proposed here contributes measurements of the bottom-side ion ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Xenopus Melanophore-Based Toxicity Sensor for Water

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A07T030

    Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. An innovative alternative is the use of cell-based biosensors that can rapidly assess the general to ...
