  1. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    In this Phase I STTR program, ORBITEC and University of Wisconsin-Madison teamed to develop a simultaneous particle image velocimetry and thermometry (PIV+T) diagnostic for reacting flows. In applications such as gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, and rocket engines, the dynamics of the turbulent combustion necessitate measurement of both temperature and velocity fields to understa ...

  2. Development Of Standoff Laser-Induced Thermal (Infrared) Emission (LITE) System For Chemical and Biological Materials


    There is a current need for an active standoff system that can detect and classify surfaces that have been contaminated with chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) materials. Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Laser Induced Thermal Emission (LITE) has shown great promise for detection of such contaminants. In Phase I of this program we, for the first time, have demonstrated generati ...

  3. Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Syntonics LLC            Topic: AF08BT01

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, Syntonics will develop an advanced wireless strain measurement system for structural health monitoring. The system will be configured with a number of passive, non-battery power strain sensors communicating wirelessly with an interrogating device mounted external to the engine under test. The goal is the development of designs and manufacturing processes able to reliably ...

  4. Situational Awareness through Multi-layer Spectrum Sensing and Network Design

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT06

    ABSTRACT: We present a comprehensive framework for shaping, inferring, and optimizing information flows for dynamic spectrum access (DSA) in cognitive radio (CR) networks. A principal goal is to develop methods for modeling, design, and analysis of spectrum sensing and control, by leveraging and advancing network coding and network optimization solutions. More specifically, we study spectrum mana ...

  5. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...

  6. Bacteriophage-based probiotic preparation for managing Shigella infections

    SBC: Intralytix, Inc.            Topic: A09AT012

    During the studies supported by our Phase I STTR grant from the US Army, we began developing and testing a novel concept for a probiotic preparation based on naturally occurring bacteriophages as a way to condition the GI tract"s microflora gently and favorably. The preparation (tentatively designated"ShigActive") is a bacteriophage cocktail that specifically targets Shigella spp. (significant ...

  7. Kernel-mode Software Protection Vulnerability Assessment and Rootkit Reverse Engineering Tool Development

    SBC: HBGary, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC4

    The Air Force Research Lab's Software Protection Initiative has a mission to prevent unauthorized distribution and exploitation of application software critical to national security. That mission has led to investment to develop advanced software protections, including the use of rootkit-like methods that provide anti-piracy and anti-reverse engineering protection critical to software application ...

  8. Heterodyne Correlation Random Noise Radar for Through Wall and Building Interior Imaging

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF06T024

    Recent terrorist activities and law-enforcement situations involving hostage situations underscore the need for effective through-the-wall surveillance (TWS). Current building interior imaging systems are based on short-pulse waveforms, which are easily recognizable by the intelligent adversary who may employ countermeasures to confound detection. We propose a coherent continuous-wave ultrawideban ...

  9. Analysis and Visualization of Large Complex Multi-Step Cyber Attack Graphs

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A06T018

    In Phase I, we have shown the feasibility of our unique attack graph approach: separating different graph types during modeling, integrating abstract and network-specific knowledge for actual attack graph creation, and generating real-time graphs for situational awareness. This unique approach renders appropriate balance for the critical tradeoff between model semantics and scalability, whereas pr ...

  10. High-yield plant based manufacturing of bioengineered spider silk (Phytosilk)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    The high strength to weight and elasticity properties of spider silk make it of significant interest for the production of advanced fibers for military and civilian applications. Plants may offer the only feasible mechanism to produce quantities of spider silk proteins sufficient to sustain large scale manufacturing of these high performance fibers. Successful implementation of bioengineered spid ...
