  1. First-Principles-Based Framework for Discovery and Design of Sustainable Non-Rare-Earth High-Temperature Alloy Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    In this STTR Phase I project, CFD Research Corporation and University of Nebraska at Omaha will develop a preliminary computationally-driven first-principles framework for discovery and design of non-RE-containing alloys for high temperature applications. While rare-earth (RE) based alloys have played a pivotal role in modern defense and high-tech industry, sustainability of RE-based materials is ...

  2. RF-IR Data Fusion

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    The development and integration of three unique and innovative algorithm prototypes into a"Fused Track and Characterization Schema"are proposed. This Schema will encompass the determination of signatures and characteristics of objects that can be identified by RF and EO/IR Sensors in order to enable multi-sensor data fusion and correlation. The first algorithm, the"3D Pose Estimation"Algorithm, p ...

  4. Human Performance Modeling Mark-up Language (HMP-ML)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA12T006

    The modeling and simulation of human performance is often difficult because there is no uniform framework for expressing the content and structure of a human performance model and all but impossible to compare and contrast across different models despite the abundance of quantitative modeling tools. The inability to communicate model structure and content is not just a practical shortcoming; it is ...

  5. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor has been shown to be an effective element as the core of a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The response of the computing circuit is the result of weighted external stimuli, the current state of the device, and the history of exposure by the device to the stimuli. A highly specialized version of the device, as developed by the Advanc ...

  6. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  7. Ultrahigh Quality GaN Films

    SBC: Silver Sky Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of chemical beam epitaxy to grow ultrahigh quality GaN thin films will be developed. This process will allow the growth of GaN on high thermal conductivity substrates and enable the fabrication of precision superlattice structures. GaN will be grown using Ga effusion cells and ammonia-in an ultrahigh vacuum environment. This growth rate will be in the 1 micron per hour range at tem ...

  8. Universal, Windows Based, High Speed Data Acquisition & Con

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Current off-the-shelf Windows-based software/hardware data acquisition and control (DAC) systems are relatively slow, inflexible, and incapable of driving high speed, multi-channel systems. The proposed product will advance this technology through the development of an innovative, Windows-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) and required PC-resident module interfaced with a VXI chassis containing s ...

  9. Broadband Front Ends for Radar & Digital Receivers

    SBC: THESUS LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Theseus Logic/SUNY-Stony Brook team is proposing to develop, demonstrate and commercialize Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) circuit designed using NULL Convention Logic (NCL). Phase I of this program will demonstrate, by simulation and modeling, the feasibility of implementing logic gate structures in RSFQ technology which can exploi the effective delay insensitivity of NCL. In Phase II the te ...

  10. Optical Frequency Conversion for Efficient Blue Light Sourc

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Time Domain Corporation proposes novel devices for achieving second harmonic generation in Laser Systems. The result will be a micro-size, layered, periodic, Semiconductor structure or a fiber Bragg grating that will perform several orders of magnitude better than devices in use today. Most second harmonic crystals that are currently used are of millimeter=size or greater. The simple design of ...
