  1. Novel, Optimal, Physics-Based Reduced Order Models for Nonlinear Aeroelasticity

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT03

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order nonlinear aeroelastic models for multidisciplinary/multi-fidelity optimization problems. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism of optimal prediction theory and a novel implementation of a filtered harmonic balance solution met ...

  2. Multi-layered lightweight alloy development for improved blast and penetration resistance

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: A09AT010

    This program is to develop multi-layered,light weight armor alloys systems that offer improved fragmentation and armor piercing performance as compared to any other monolithic structures. Such alloys and laminated configuration will be developed by utilizing advanced computational techniques to assist in the development of complimentary alloys that would provide an optimal combination of hardness ...

  3. Iron Man: Novel Technologies for Autonomous Defense

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A09AT013

    Caldera Pharmaceuticals proposes to develop a highly metal-selective system to maintain iron concentrations in the body at optimal levels to prevent infections. The system will control iron without the loss of other essential micronutrients; loss of micronutrients is the cause of toxicity in most chelation systems. Metal selectivity and the corresponding safety for use is the key difference betwee ...

  4. Innovative technologies to effectively treat multi-drug resistant and/or biofilm-embedded bacteria

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A09AT004

    Antibiotic resistance is a major concern for both military and civilian populations. The US FDA reports that about 70 percent of bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are resistant to at least one drug. Caldera Pharmaceuticals proposes to develop novel antibacterials for the control of bacterial pathogens that are problematic for the military, focusing on resistance due to biofilms. Caldera ...

  5. Computer Generation of Multicore Software for Software-Defined Radio

    SBC: SpiralGen            Topic: N09T036

    Future software platforms starting with today’s multicores will be massively parallel, offer unprecedented performance, and will be exceedingly difficult to program. In this project, we will work towards automatic development of high-performance software for these platforms. Specifically, we will design a tool that can computer-generate the performance critical components of software-defined rad ...

  6. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    The proposed barium strontium titanate (BST) nanodielectric devices will combine some of the best features of bulk and thin-film based tunable dielectrics: low microwave losses, high tunability at high fields, the potential for low operating voltages, and less temperature dependent dielectric response. The miniaturization of devices and reduction of insertion losses requires developments of mater ...

  7. Improved Soft Magnetic Materials for High Power Density Electrical Machines

    SBC: Spang and Company            Topic: AF08T031

    CMU and Magnetics, A Division of Spang and Co. have developed a new high-saturation induction, high-temperature nanocomposite alloy for high-power inductors. This material has FeCo nanocrystals with an A2 or B2 structure embedded in an amorphous matrix. Field annealing resulted in a linear B-H response with a relative permeability of 1400, constant up to fields of 1.2 T. The material was used in ...

  8. Lightweight Structures Roadside Blast Protection

    SBC: Ablaze Development Corporation            Topic: N09T032

    The key technical objective of the Phase I effort will be the successful development of lightweight compact structures that can be applied to vehicles, either as add-on structures or as an integral part of the vehicle. This will be accomplished through analysis, simulation, practical experience, intuition and experimentation, with the aid of artificial intelligence, primarily in the form of gen ...

  9. Large Eddy Simulations of Hot Supersonic Jets for Aeroacoustics


    The noise from the turbulent, hot, supersonic jets at take-offs and landings as well as high-Mach cruise at altitude dominates noise emanating from other powerplant components and has significant safety implications for launch personnel, as well as environmental impacts of noise pollution around military installation. Noise generation mechanisms of supersonic jets are quite complex and different t ...

  10. Heat Transfer Prediction in Transitional Hypersonic Flow


    Our Phase I program will extend and validate a high-speed engineering transitional model (ETM) using new CUBRC data sets (such as HIFIRE-1) of interest to the Air Force. The ETM is responsive to tunnel noise and wall heating, and predicts the overshoot in heat transfer observed in transitional data. The model solves PDEs for transition onset as well as for an intermittency parameter that blends th ...
