  1. Fabrication of 3D Photonic Crystals in the RF Range for Man-Portable Antenna Applications

    SBC: Antennovation            Topic: A05T017

    Antennovation and the Pennsylvania State University propose to develop novel new electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) materials in conjunction with miniaturized broadband antennas for use in man-portable antenna applications. The proposed antenna/EBG system will be designed to be low-profile, compact, and light-weight for helmet-mounted antennas and/or other body-worn applications. The frequency range o ...

  2. Halo-hydrocarbon Growth of Bulk SiC

    SBC: BRIGHTOUTCOME INC.            Topic: N04T030

    We propose to use a gas fed vertical style sublimation reactor that can accommodate several different types of chemistries and be modified to a number of different approaches. The reactor is similar to the HTCVD reactor developed by Linköping University and Okmetic. The approach will be to initially try out different chemistries at fairly high temperatures where sublimation is a dominant process. ...

  3. Missile Plume Simulation Improvements Using GPU Chemical Kinetics Coprocessors


    High-fidelity missile plume flowfield simulations of MDA interest require use of detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms, which significantly improve IR/UV/RCS/visible signature prediction but entail long solution runtimes for completion. These long runtimes result from the required iterative solution of large systems of stiff, non-linear chemical source terms at each CFD mesh point; this curtails t ...

  4. Low-cost, Position Indicator for Nondestructive Inspection C-Scanning


    A machine vision system will be developed for real time tracking of the position of a hand held probe from a generic portable NDT instrument. This process will be performed under software control in such a manner as to allow it to allow an independent parameter to be associated with each location.

  5. Unmanned Vehicle Effectiveness Evaluation System (UVEES)


    In this project Wagner Associates and John Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) will develop an Unmanned Vehicle Effectiveness Evaluation System (UVEES) using a mix of analytic and Monte Carlo techniques. The proposed UVEES will model the behavior of each Unmanned Vehicle (UV), including fully autonomous UVs and UVs operating under manual control. UVEES will also include digita ...

  6. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  7. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  8. Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate and implement robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low quality video, sensor payload limitations, minimal onboar ...

  9. Wireless Sensing for Survivable Machinery Control

    SBC: Fairmount Automation Inc.            Topic: N05T020

    While reliability and security remain top concerns in the use of wireless networks in shipboard machinery spaces, the benefits are too alluring to ignore. Among them: reduced manning; wiring, installation, and maintenance cost savings; substantial weight and space savings thru the elimination of wiring; design and expansion flexibility; and the promise of improved survivability thru the use of ad ...

  10. Ultrasonic Guided Wave for Long Range Monitoring and Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) of Corrosion Induced Defects in Shipboard Piping with Complex Geo

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N05T032

    FBS, Inc has identified the gaps, challenges, and technical issues related to guided wave inspection of complex shipboard piping systems. Among these are inspection of and beyond elbows, liquid loading both interior and exterior to the piping, and defect cross-sectional-area (CSA) detection of ~ 1%. Well known for wave mechanics modeling analysis, FBS, Inc. has the expertise to cast each of these ...
