  1. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Omm Scientific, Inc            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: This proposal sets out a plan to continue the method development for selective chemical oxidization of one amine of a polyamino, multi-heterocyclic class of energetic materials. The approach is based on screening one substrate (DAAzF) with many different oxidants under a variety of conditions including microwave heating to find those conditions where one amine group has been oxidized t ...

  2. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  3. Improved Combustion Efficiency and Reduction of Emissions of Compression Ignition Engines Using On-Board Non-Thermal Plasma Generated Hydrogen/Syngas

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT023

    The Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for over 21 million barrels of oil usage per day, with a majority of the fuel being appropriated to JP-8. Among the military"s various armed forces, the Army alone spends over $4.1 billion for energy, with a major portion of this also attributed to JP-8 jet fuel consumption for maintaining operational capability on a daily basis. Diesel generators are curre ...

  4. Incremental Learning for Robot Sensing and Control

    SBC: Net-Scale Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09AT030

    The purpose of this proposal is to build a working prototype of a highly-adaptive, vehicle-independent, compact, low-power, low-cost, autonomous ground robot navigation system that incorporates the results obtained in our Phase I effort and in our earlier DARPA LAGR (Learning Applied to Ground Robots) work. The system will be able to quickly and automatically adapt to changing environments in real ...

  5. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...

  6. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10aT012

    A parallel random number generation suite that generates, dynamically, millions of parallel pseduorandom number streams suitable for consumption by high performance computing (HPC) applications on various platforms will be implemented, tested, and provided to Government, academic and private HPC users for their evaluation and use. The software will be tuned for scalability, repeatability and effic ...

  9. Aerosol Jet Printing of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Transistors on Plastic Substrate

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: AF09BT26

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment accuracy. The transistor performance will be enha ...
