  1. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  2. Adaptive Compressed Sensing for Mission Prioritized Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Leskiw Associates            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) of complex systems is challenging in many respects. Vast amounts of data are typically generated, which need to be transmitted, stored, and analyzed. Traditionally, such testing has been"stove-piped,"with the data in one domain collected and analyzed independently of the others. Nowadays, however, T & E activities are being integrated. And dynamical a ...

  3. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. and Princeton University propose to develop a computational framework for accurately and efficiently modeling the full set of physics associated with aircraft operations. The critical attributes of the proposed framework are accuracy, computational efficiency, and inclusiveness. More accurate computational models will support higher fidelity analysis during the air ...

  5. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Within the last decade, game theoretic approaches have emerged as viable tools to analyze distributed wireless resource allocation problems and design distributed transmission strategies. Conventional game theoretic designs for wireless resource allocation problems do not consider jamming issues in the context of network utility maximization. These conventional game theoretic designs ar ...

  6. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Multiscale Design Systems, LLC            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to establish a non-destructive, three-dimensional, image-based analysis protocol for inhomogeneous materials that inherently considers the heterogeneous nature of condensed matter. The process begins with a 3-D assessment of the internal material structure performed using a high-resolution micro-CT scanner. Next, reconstruction of a statistically optimal RUC will be per ...

  7. Nanosensor Switches for Detection of Toxins, Pathogens, and Small Molecules

    SBC: APTAMATRIX, INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: This phase I STTR project is a proof of concept study for developing near real-time, nanoparticle based sensors that detect the presence of specified toxins, pathogens, proteins, metabolites and small molecules. The specificity and sensitivity of this"nanosensor"is imparted by aptamer recognition that is engineered into a novel, patented technology we termed as an Alloswitch. These Allo ...

  8. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: The extreme toxicity of organophosphate (OP) chemical warfare agents (CWA) is due to their specific, rapid, and irreversible reaction with cholinesterase enzymes. A significant portion of this reactive nature of OP agents is directly due to the unique metabolically active environment found in and around cells. The goal of this proposal is to harness this unique intracellular environme ...

  9. Hybrid Chemical-Electric Propulsion (HCEP)

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I efforts seek to develop a dual-mode Hybrid ChemicalElectric Propulsion thruster concept design based on the extensive microwave torch/arcjet experience of PSU and Hall and ion experience of EDA. The primary focus of the Phase I effort will be demonstrate the operation of an ionic liquid microwave thruster in the high-T/P regime and the basic operation of a Hall and ...

  10. High efficiency up- and down-converting infrared nanoparticles

    SBC: Nanoscience Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments in the field of nanotechnology are providing principally innovative ways to fabricate fluorescent tags. Near infrared (IR) fluorescent tags, which are visible when using existing infrared imaging devices, such as night vision goggles available for soldiers, are of direct interest for fast and secure tagging of objects. For example, visual remote and rapid identificat ...
