  3. An MPM-based Multiscale Framework for Simulations of Mesoscale Heterogeneous PBXs

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: We will develop a multiscale molecular dynamics/material point method (MD/MPM) methodology for determining the response of PBXs to a wide range of loading conditions as a function of mesoscale structure with emphasis on accurate representation of interfacial physics. The initial material of choice will be HMX + DOA plasticized HTPB binder. Velocity-dependent grain-grain and viscoelastic ...

  4. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: Elimination of the cold chain is of vital importance for the ability to treat injured warfighters in the field and behind enemy lines. The application of an already FDA approved reagent for the stabilization of labile reagents will allow for minimal development time delaying the fielding of a new technology to fill this role. Collagen has been used extensively since the 1980s as an appro ...

  5. Manufacture of Bulk Nanocrystalline Tungsten Alloys

    SBC: HEAVYSTONE LABORATORY LLC            Topic: A13010

    Tungsten has many applications, but its lack of ductility has been a major issue limiting its use. If tungsten or its alloys could be made more ductile, many applications would benefit, including the application of tungsten for military applications. Under the proposed project, using both grain structure control and alloying techniques, we will develop the process to produce nanocrystalline tungst ...

  6. Novel Bioprocess for Spider Silk Fiber Production

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A14015

    Spider silk is one of the strongest yet still elastic natural materials to be formed into fibers. The ability to utilize these proteins in next generation clothing and cordage represents a leap forward in textile technology. Unfortunately the farming of spiders necessary to generate natural fibers is difficult and costly. As a result the expression of the proteins from other hosts is warranted. Th ...

  7. An Integrated Biohazard Analyzer for Multiplexed Food and Water Pathogens

    SBC: Espira, Inc.            Topic: A15064

    Espira has developed a Biohazard Analyzer (BA) for rapid pathogen detection. Espiras Biohazard Analyzer goes beyond lab culturing of indicator coliforms and E.coli by detecting a suite of specific bacteria, protozoa and viruses in the same test. Total organisms and viable organisms are separately reported for each pathogen. A typical Biohazard Analyzer test cycle is under 1 hour. This includes aut ...

  8. Nanoxene Enabled Radiant Floor Heating Technology for Expeditionary Shelters

    SBC: LIFE-E, LLC            Topic: A15066

    In this Phase I proposal, we describe the design of a radiant-heating system enabled by the Nanoxene electrothermal coating technology recently invented by Life-E. We will demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating this system as radiant-floor heating technology for expeditionary shelters. The new radiant-heating system has an accordion-style planar sheet structure, powered by a three-phase AC inp ...

  9. Front-end Application Specific Integrated Circuit for Navigation-Grade MEMS Gyroscope

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15022

    STI proposes to design a high performance Front End ASIC using the Trusted Tower-Jazz 130nm process to drive both piezoelectric and capacitive MEMS gyroscopes as specified in the solicitation with Angular Random Walk (ARW) less than 0.001 deg/hr^(1/2), less than 1ppm variation over -40C to 80C, 100db dynamic range and 10VDC at 30mA, tunable with drive and sense frequency ranging from 1-30kHz, with ...

  10. Data Management Tools for Metallic Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: 3DSIM LLC            Topic: AF151134

    ABSTRACT:Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies are bringing significant new capabilities to manufacturing. However, a number of technical challenges remain before these capabilities can be fully exploited. The design, modeling and data management tools developed for subtractive, formative and mold-based manufacturing are not well suited for additive processes that allow pointwise and layerwise ...
