  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. Physics-Based Identification and Management of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations (LCO)

    SBC: EQUILIBRIA            Topic: AF07T006

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop a systematic approach for building reduced-order models (nonlinear coupled finite-degree-of-freedom equations) capable of reliably modeling and predicting limit cycle oscillations (LCOs) and using these models in LCO management procedures. The models will be developed by combining (a) physical observations from ground vibration, wind tunnel, and ...

  3. Bone-Conducted Sound Transmission and Attenuation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF06T035

    Hearing protection for personnel working in high-noise environments presents an important challenge for the scientific and engineering community. Air Force maintenance personnel working in close proximity to operating jet aircraft can be exposed to sound levels approaching 150 dBA. At these levels, the attenuation provided by hearing protection devices (HPDs) is limited by bone-conducted sound th ...

  4. Quantum Dots in Optical Cavities for Sharp and Variable Spectral Response

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: AF07T027

    We propose to embed quantum dots in resonant optical cavities to sharpen their spectral respone and provide a mechanism to spatially vary it across an infrared detector array. This project will combine the self-assembled-quantum-dot epitaxy expertise of Professor Towe's group at Carnegie Mellon University with the infrared focal plane array design, fabrication, and test expertise of QmagiQ. Phas ...

  5. A powered foot and ankle prosthesis for improved maneuverability and reduced metabolic cost

    SBC: Simbex LLC            Topic: A06T031

    This Phase II STTR proposal continues development and implementation of novel powered prosthetic foot-ankle components for use by military and civilian personnel with lower-limb loss in typical military and civilian environments. A cost-effective, biomimetic, dynamic foot-ankle system is proposed that improves walking speed, gait metabolism, and prosthesis control compared to current passive foot ...

  6. A Novel Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition process for producing RMI/EFI coatings

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05T028

    Though low pressure plasmas have found wide applications in materials processing and play a key role in manufacturing semiconductor devices, operating the plasma at reduced pressure has several drawbacks. Vacuum systems are expensive and require maintenance. Load locks and robotic assemblies must be used to shuttle materials in and out of vacuum and essentially it is a batch process. Also the size ...
