  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. Circulating Prostate Cancer Progenitor Cell Assay Development

    SBC: ANDROBIOSYS, INC.            Topic: A08T041

    The technical objectives of this Phase II project are to identify unique biomarkers and produce molecular, antibody and peptide reagents that are specific for human prostate cancer progenitor stem cells. We propose to utilize the information from the Phase I award and subsequent research to develop assay reagents that would be used to develop a blood-based assay specific for circulating prostate c ...

  3. A NOVEL OXYGEN SEPARATION AND STORAGE APPARATUS FOR UNDERWATER AND HIGH ALTITUDE FUEL CELL APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Enogetek, Inc.            Topic: A08T011

    U.S. Military operations have come to depend more and more on unmanned vehicles (unmanned undersea vehicles UUVs and unmanned air vehicles UAVs) to carry out numerous missions. However, the transit distance for many of these missions is often well limited by the energy storage capacity of their power systems. Fuel cell, particularly SOFC that can be fed directly with reformate, looks promising. Co ...

  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. AppMon: Application Monitors for Not-Yet-Trusted Software

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    Full certification and testing of application programs provides a level of assurance that they will not harm host systems, but it is expensive and delays use of the application. For this reason, software users are often faced with a vexing dilemma: in order to obtain critical new functionality, they must use software that may damage their systems or render it vulnerable to attack. To address thi ...

  7. Deobfuscating tools for the validation and verification of tamper-proofed software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC5

    Recently, there has been an increase in the use of anti-tamper techniques (e.g., obfuscation) in all types of software. However, applying anti-tamper techniques is technically challenging, and when applied to large, sophisticated software, there is a danger of introducing subtle bugs, or not introducing sufficient protection. The existing state of anti-tamper technology is undesirable in that it ( ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Hypergolic Ignition of Gelled Propellants

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T001

    Hypergolic propellant gels offer improved safety and performance flexibility. However, their longer ignition delays endanger engine health and preclude widespread use. Understanding the physical and chemical paths to ignition can enable improving ignition and realizing favorable IM characteristics of gels. ORBITEC and JHU propose targeted laboratory and modeling experiments to elucidate phenome ...

  10. Modeling Software and Tools for Reliability Engineering of Micro/Nano-Device Systems and Components

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: A06T002

    The ability to develop new generations of superior military systems and civilian products requires the use of multifunctional materials and ever smaller components for which key design parameters are associated with nano-scale constituents. The ability to understand and design these materials and components requires the application of multiscale simulation technologies that can account for interac ...
