  1. 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 ...

  2. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF05T010

    This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to chemistry, where quantum chemical methods must be extremely accurate to yield reliable rate constants. Yet u ...

  3. Electromagnetic Launching for Affordable Agile Access to Space

    SBC: ADVANCED MAGNET LAB, INC.            Topic: AF05T001

    The conceptual design of a novel, hypersonic electromagnetic launch system has been developed. Phase-1 assumed a 100-kg projectile leaving the launcher at 7,000 m/sec. The projectile is propelled and levitated by electromagnetic forces inside a tube filled with low pressure helium. A controlled acceleration profile, fully adjustable to the requirements of various missions, is used to reach 5000 ge ...

  4. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention Allocation

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a quantitative dynamical model of human attention and perception. Recent experimental findings have demonstrated the importance of event timing for perceiving and attending to complex sequences of events: 1) The auditory system uses active temporal mechanisms for analysis of sound from the earliest stages of sensation through the ...

  5. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention and Perception

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The development of tractable mathematical models of gradient-frequency nonlinear resonator networks is critical to advanced computer applications that require faithful computer simulation of human attention and/or perception. Conventional linear resonator models are computationally and analytically tractable, however tractability is achieved at the expense of capturing many significant features of ...

  6. Infrared Fiber for Conversion & Routing

    SBC: COHERENT PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: AF07T037

    We propose to use nano-structured Silicon photonic crystal fiber to convert near infrared (NIR) to Mid infrared using parametric amplification. Silicon has intrinsic properties that lend itself to this application. Silicon has very low loss in the Mid IR, high damage threshold, and high environmental stability. However, NIR pumps experience strong loss in bulk silicon crystal due to two-photon ...

  7. Prediction of the Degradation of Composite Materials for Emerging Army Facilities

    SBC: DUTTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A06T027

    An innovative methodology, based on mechanistic models, will be developed for prediction of long-term (25+ years) durability of composites for the US Army's emerging facilities in different climatic zones. Accelerated testing simulating the Army's composites applications in various constructions and fields will validate it. Phase I developed the basic predictive tool using the Arrehenius principle ...

  8. Training Soldiers to Decode Nonverbal Cues in Cross-Cultural Interactions

    SBC: GLOBAL ASSESSMENT LLC            Topic: OSD07T004

    The overall objective of the proposal is to generate guidelines for the conceptual design of an interactive, computer-based training tool to improve Soldiers' ability to decode nonverbal cues and behavior in multiple channels (i.e., vocal tones, gestures). The tool will assist Soldiers to exhibit effective cross-cultural communication skills and prepare them to interpret and predict behavior more ...

  9. High Frequency Surface Pressure, Shear Stress and Heat Flux Measurements for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: AF07T014

    The goal of the proposed project is to develop a robust, high-bandwidth, micromachined Moiré optical-based shear stress sensor with a remote photo-diode/fiber-optic array optical readout for high-temperature, unsteady high-speed flow measurement applications. The time-accurate, continuous, direct measurement of fluctuating wall shear stress is currently not possible. The realization of this ca ...

  10. Measuring and Mapping Political Will

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD07T002

    Today's strategic threat is far more fragmented than during the Cold War era. The 21st century strategic threat triad - failed states, global terrorism, and WMD proliferation -represents the greatest modern day threat to our national security interests . The common factor that exacerbates this threat triad is that of instability, and addressing it requires support from counterpart leaders to stabi ...
