  1. Noncontacting Full-Field Real-Time Strain Measurement System for Air Platforms in Combined Extreme Environments

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF151069

    ABSTRACT:A cooperative small business and university research and development program is proposed to begin development of a robust, non-contacting, digital image correlation based, full-field strain measurement system for high temperature applications. The Phase I studies will demonstrate that a robust high temperature digital image correlation system (HTDICS) can be developed that is capable of a ...

  2. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles


    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  3. Avoiding the Ice Cryolesion in Tissue Cryopreservation with Ice Modulators


    The long term goal of the proposed research is to develop improved methods for cryopreservation of complex tissues at extreme low temperature. An innovative approach is taken in the proposed line of research, where synthetic ice modulators (SIMs) are combined with established cryoprotective agent (CPA) cocktails to create more favorable conditions for cryopreservation in a process known as vitrifi ...

  4. Verified and Validated Software for Three-dimensional (3-D) Fatigue Crack Growth and Stable Crack Extension

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF083175

    A user-friendly software package for rapid fatigue evaluation of specific scalable flaw geometries, as well as stable tearing after crack length reaches a specified size, is being developed. The package will employ modified CRACK3D code and use VCCT with 10-noded tetrahedral elements to determine fatigue crack tip parameters (e.g. dK1, dK2, etc.) for fatigue cracks undergoing (a) mixed mode, in-ph ...

  5. Component and Subsystem Development for Compact, Efficient LADAR Ranging

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: AF093089

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of compact, efficient, radiation hardened laser technology for LADAR detection, ranging and range-gated imaging applications. Traditional laser designs exhibit modest wall plug efficiencies. They are limited in scalability, tough to miniaturize and often intolerant of space radiation. Conventional diode pumped lase ...

  6. High Power Optical Amplifier (HPOAs) for Free Space

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: AF093045

    Kigre proposes to develop and integrate unique radiation hardened, athermal, 1.5um laser gain materials and pumping architectures into high performance optical laser amplifier devices for SATCOM applications. The approach employs long life radiation tolerant pump diodes configured for direct side pumping of large mode area laser glass gain elements. Traditional single mode fiber laser amplifier ...
