  1. Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile Targets

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT05

    ABSTRACT: The focus of this research will be on developing a model and associated computational tool called HPEM-Expert that is consistent with the Directed RF Energy Assessment Model 2, (DREAM2), which describes and predicts the effects of a high-power electromagnetic (HPEM) signal on a mobile target, to improve on the existing DREAM tool. Our approach will be to develop a modeling and simulation ...

  2. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  3. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...

  4. Multi-Modal Sensor Fusion Utilizing Statistical Dependence and Compressive Sampling

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Our goal is to develop theoretical frameworks for efficient multisensor fusion of high dimensional data for target detection localization and tracking. We plan to develop novel algorithms based upon our previous research on copula theory to perform inference with multi-modal correlated sensor data. Copulas describes the dependence between random variables and allow one to optimally explo ...

  5. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  7. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: A platform (PHA-fuse) for the stabilization of diagnostic and therapeutic reagents will be established based upon the polymer, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). Fusions of a target molecule to PHA synthase, the enzyme responsible for PHA synthesis, will be constructed and used to catalyze the synthesis of PHA granules. These PHA granules will help stabilize the fused target molecules and elimi ...

  8. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material selection criteria, proportioning methods and mixing pro ...

  9. Nondestructive Evaluation Techniques for Composite Materials with Low Density Gradients

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF14AT05

    ABSTRACT: Energetic composite materials comprise crystalline energetic particles embedded in a polymer matrix. There is a need to gain insight into the microstructure and damage mechanisms of energetic composites via nondestructive evaluation. Applications of x-ray computed micro-tomography to resolve the microstructure of energetic composites are challenged by the low density gradient between th ...

  10. Real time detection of stress- and fatigue-related biomarkers using vibrational spectroscopy

    SBC: Ionica Sciences, Inc            Topic: AF14AT21

    ABSTRACT: The effects of fatigue and exhaustion can have significant effects on the capabilities of personnel throughout the military and civilian sectors. Current methods to evaluate and reduce the effects of severe fatigue and exhaustion include self-reporting, assessment using simple cognitive tests and exercises, and the implementation of fatigue management programs. Detection of chemical ind ...
