  1. Instrumentation for Monitoring Breath Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Health, Condition, Toxic Exposure, and Disease

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF04T017

    Arete Associates and National Jewish Medical and Research Center propose to develop an instrument to measure the concentration of ethane in exhaled breath. The analyzer uses the combination of a proprietary hollow optical waveguide measurement cell, tunable semiconductor laser, and wavelength modulation spectroscopy to provide sensitive and reliable measurements of ethane. The sensor will exhibi ...

  2. Field Marshal Simulation Environment

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T006

    The Field Marshal Electromagnetic Simulation Environment (EM-SE) will provide a "virtual laboratory" for high-voltage radiation source research and design. The environment will be based on a modern scriptable programming language (Python) for usability and flexibility, finite difference techniques for extensibility and ease of maintenance, and multigrid techniques to enhance speed and power. Reduc ...

  4. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: Carbon Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF04T020

    This STTR Phase I project will focus on fabricating 3-D multi-scale macro/nanocomposites with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) integrated in carbon fiber preforms. The incorporation of nanoscale CNTs and conventional micro-scale carbon fibers into the polymer matrix will lead to a hierarchy of the reinforcement scales, ranging from a single fiber surrounded by a nanocomposite sheath to a bundle of fibers w ...

  5. All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

    SBC: FLUOROCHEM, INC.            Topic: AF04T003

    All-nitrogen compounds, also known as polynitrogen compounds, or nitrogen-rich compounds, such as polyazides, store large amounts of energy that can be released when these materials decompose to molecular nitrogen. The synthesis of these materials is very challenging because the reactants, intermediates, and desired products have high endothermicities. These high endothermicities make many of the ...

  7. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: HPS Simulations            Topic: AF03T022

    Computer wargames and combat simulation software has reached a very high level of comprehensiveness and sophistication in terms of modeling fidelity and accurate results. The recently released simulation titled Point of Attack-2, in particular, affords users a very powerful combat simulation package in a desktop PC environment. At the same time, however, the increased complexity of the system ma ...

  9. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: IDZAP LLC            Topic: AF04T008

    Given the ubiquitous nature of the Intenet and the pervasiveness of multimedia content on the network, a typical user downloads an enormous number of media files daily and routinely via many mechanisms including web browsing, email, file sharing, and so on. The easy availability of high quality steganography software, both public domain and commercial, media files can be easily used to deliver ma ...

  10. Fast, Robust Real-Time Trajectory Generation for Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous Nonlinear Flight Systems


    Recent military campaigns in the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Iraq have highlighted the importance of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to national defense and security. While UAVs have already begun to play an important role in military operations, the full impact of the technology will only be felt when autonomous capabilities of UAVs are fully developed and realized. This proposal addr ...
