  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  5. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) spectrometer specifically for the characterization of semiconductor materials over a range of temperatures, electric fields, and magnetic fields. In phase I, we will configure fiber optic coupled TD-THz instrumentation to make measurements on a sampl ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Metamaterial-based MEM ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased-array antenna

    SBC: A. BROWN DESIGN            Topic: AF11BT28

    ABSTRACT: Under this collaborative effort between A Brown Design, Michigan State University, and Raytheon, a novel phase shifter design is proposed. The phase shifter design builds upon existing RF MEMS capacitive technology by co-integrating MEMS switches with metamaterial unit cells. The metamterial unit cell design is versatile and allows significant degree of freedom in integration and design ...

  10. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: We will design, fabricate and test a quantum processing unit (QPU) based on a symmetric ion trap chip. The trap will provide trapping depth similar to that obtain with macrosize Paul traps. In addition to the ion trap, this chip will incorporate integrated optical systems which will deliver the light fields required by the elementary quantum processing unit (or quantum sensing unit). ...
