  1. Turbulent Combustion Interaction Models for LES Simulations of High Speed Flow

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD10T001

    At present, the predictive capability of simulation codes and models used in the conceptual planning and design of high-speed propulsion systems is limited by the ability to describe the complex flow fields inside the combustor, mixing models, detailed chemistry and turbulence-chemistry interactions, and subgrid-closure models. The objective of the proposed work is to develop and validate a high-f ...

  2. Nano-Sintered High Thermal Conductivity Composites

    SBC: CREATIVE ELECTRON INC.            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project will develop carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) material systems incorporating metallic nanoparticles with low-temperature sintering properties to render structures with very high transverse thermal conductivity. CFRPs are already used in a myriad of applications requiring high strength-to-weight ratio, but their poor transverse thermal conductivity limits ...

  3. Photoactivatable Protean Glass/Ceramic Materials for Imbedded Miniature Devices

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: Photosensitive protean materials form essentially a new class of materials which are manufactured in one state but its select material properties can be physically and locally altered through patterning and lithography. In this proposed research, we will demonstrate the feasibility of creation of conductive copper lines imbued in the glass by using novel glasses with laser direct writin ...

  4. Photostructural Glass Ceramics and Optimized Processing for Laser Initiated 3D Conductors (PhotoCon)

    SBC: OBALON, LLC            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR effort a small business company Obalon LLC is teaming up with industry leader Aerospace Corporation in order to develop novel photostructural glass ceramic composition PhotoCon with capability of laser induced 3D conductor patterning inside the bulk material. Following the photolytic process of laser exposure and the development of latent image the team will implement the s ...

  5. Saliency Annotation of Image and Video Data

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF10BT15

    ABSTRACT: With the current flood of surveillance data available to ISR analysts, human attention has become the most valuable resource to ISR systems. Although automated tracking and labeling algorithms are now capable of automatically identifying and roughly classifying targets, the current rate of false alarms and irrelevant annotations makes existing technology unsuitable for wide-area persist ...

  6. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Advanced computational methods and increased computing power have brought about a new age of modeling and simulation capability for full aircraft configurations. These advances have provided the potential ability to conduct accurate computational analysis representative of experimental flight testing, reducing both risk and cost. A unified toolset to conduct a complete end-to-end virtua ...

  7. Tools for Modeling&Simulation of Molecular and Nanoelectronics Devices

    SBC: Atherton Quantum Insight, LLC            Topic: AF10BT21

    ABSTRACT: We will develop new multiscale methods that combine atomic-scale modeling of the active part of nano-sized electronic devices with continuum models of the surrounding passive parts. The methods will be based on highly parallel algorithms to allow for simulations of realistic device structures. The developed methods will be integrated into a new multiscale simulation module to the ATK pa ...

  8. Beam Control for Optical Phased Array Transceivers

    SBC: G A Tyler Assoc. Inc. dba the Optical Sciences Co.            Topic: AF10BT23

    ABSTRACT: A design analysis is proposed to enhance the performance of conventional phased array weapon systems and ensure that traditionally required pointing and tracking functions can be maintained. A key feature of the proposed program is the inclusion of complimentary technologies that mitigate the limitations of existing concepts under consideration that are significantly degraded by speckl ...

  9. Solvothermal growth of low-defect-density gallium nitride substrates

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF10BT28

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop cost and growth-rate models quantifying the capability for Soraa's proprietary SCoRA ammonothermal reactor and associated procedures to produce bulk GaN with low threading dislocation defect concentrations. The new apparatus and methods will enable major improvements in the growth of ultralow defect bulk GaN crystals in high volumes and modest costs. BENEFIT ...

  10. Holographic Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: In Phase I, TSC and SDL will develop holographic circular SAR (CSAR) processing algorithms that allow a scene to be viewed in three dimensions over 360 degrees in azimuth and with a large elevation angle extent. Our approach is to coherently combine a set of CSAR images collected with different grazing angles to provide vertical resolution using a DTED database as a reference. This holo ...
