  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Prognostic Scheduling

    SBC: COGNITECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF151167

    ABSTRACT: The research team will specify a data model, database, and preliminary architecture for the Prognostic Scheduling system. A proof-of-concept software demonstration will be developed, including support for database, data mining, data fusion, and prognostic scheduling software capabilities. The data mining capabilities will be deployed to a "Big Data" environment to improve its computation ...

  5. Advanced Frangible Composite Structure

    SBC: All-Tech Solutions            Topic: AF06339

    The technical objectives of this SBIR proposal include the design verification of a frangible composite ILS Glideslope Tower that will maintain existing tolerances and mission performance capabilities. Zephyr Engineering Services’ [ZES’] (formerly All-Tech Solutions, Inc. [ATSI] ), technical approach is based upon the probability demonstrated through Phase I analysis that a qualified, frangib ...

  6. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: APOLLO LIGHT SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF07T015

    Air Force operations often expose flight crew and support staff to unusual light-dark cycles that causes misalignment of the circadian pacemaker and sleep-wake cycles, resulting in disturbed sleep and impaired waking function. Air Force personnel are also frequently required to remain vigilant, often under conditions of acute or chronic sleep deprivation. An effective countermeasure is required to ...

  7. Development of a Sulfur-Tolerant Anode for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: OSD06EP1

    Fuel flexibility is a major advantage of a solid oxide fuel cell as a power generation device. However, present fuel cell anodes do not tolerate the sulfur compounds that are commonly present in both military and commercial liquid fuels. The proposed work will concentrate on developing and demonstrating a sulfur tolerant anode for a solid oxide fuel cell. The performance demonstration will be done ...

  9. W-band Microwave Amplifier Power Module

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF063001

    The Air Force would like to exploit the V (50-75 GHz) and W (75-110 GHz for SATCOM applications. For this SBIR, we propose to implement microwave power modules (MPMs) that combine lower power Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) driver amplifiers and equalizers with miniature traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers to provide high power density at lower cost. These MPMs will include the M ...

  10. Novel Terahertz Sources for Advanced Terahertz Power: Nanoklystrons and nanoTWTs

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF05T020

    The region of the millimeter and submillimeter-wave frequency bands, from 100 GHz to 3 THz (wavelengths of 3 to 0.1 mm, respectively), are some of the least explored and yet information rich regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This region of the spectrum, referred to as the terahertz (THz) frequency regime, roughly 300-3000 GHz, is ripe for development. A major impediment to development of a ...
