  1. Lightweight Composite/Hybrid Structures with Enhanced Properties


    ABSTRACT: Future hypersonic vehicles, like X-43 and X-51 derivatives and Falcon HTV-3, will require advanced strategies for thermal protection systems (TPS) and methods of structural integration. The goal in designing TPS for these types of high performance applications is to establish multi-mission reusable systems with reduced weight and increased performance that possess multifunctionality, e ...

  2. An Innovative Software Tool for Blades Stress Estimation during Multiple Simultaneous Vibratory Mode

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT22

    ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of the blade peak stress when multiple modes are important. It is proposed here to construct the blade m ...

  3. Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: In the future, numerous military database, documentation, and mission-critical information systems will be migrated to the clouds, due to cloud cost-efficiency and accessing flexibility. However, the cloud servers are generally untrusted either for data owners or users. In this proposal, A3IS (Attribute-based Algorithms for Assured Information Sharing) is proposed for dynamically and se ...

  4. Development of a Recombinant Vaccine Against Streptococcus Pyogenes Infection and Disease

    SBC: VAXFORM, LLC            Topic: A12aT027

    In this phase I proposal we propose development studies for a vaccine targeting diseases caused by infection with Streptococcus pyogenes. This vaccine utilizes a recombinant fusion protein comprising of SpeA, a secreted toxin, and SpeB, a surface bound and secreted cysteine protease. Combination of these two virulence factors provides protection against most strains of the bacteria. This antigen ...

  5. Software System for Adaptive Needs Characterization for M&S Systems Engineering

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T003

    This proposal describes a software system to help system engineers understand the true needs of the stakeholder for M & S tools in MDA.. The manual process used today takes valuable time with several iterations and the quality of the output is largely influenced by the experience level of the system engineering team involved. The proposed software system will use the Discovery Machine Modeler to ...

  6. Novel Low-frequency, Low-power Sonar Transducer for Undersea Navigation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N12AT016

    This work proposes to address the capability gap for low frequency, low power transducers in a small form factor. We propose to use newly evaluated resonance modes of single crystal piezoelectrics that provide savings of over 75% in transducer volume. The program will evaluate the shear mode material and be used in comparison with modeling and a prototype device to show operation below 100 Hz.

  7. Design and Analysis of Multi-Core Software

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T03

    We propose a comprehensive software tool called ModelTime(TM)for the design, analysis and construction of multi-core software for distributed real-time systems using a model-based design methodology. ModelTime will use UML-like diagrams to capture networked multi-core platforms, software components and configurations, functional and para-functional attributes like end-to-end timing constraints, a ...

  8. Operating System Mechanisms for Many-Core Systems

    SBC: Time Captain Inc.            Topic: OSD11T04

    Overwhelming heat and clocking considerations have led to the accelerating rise of multicore processors. The number of cores per chip is expected to increase rapidly in coming years. In fact, chips with 100 cores and prototypes with 128 cores are already available. As the number of cores increases, the scalability of the operating system(s) will become a major bottleneck, particularly for embedd ...

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N10BT050

    Navy aircraft employ components that are contoured for aerodynamic performance and made of composite sandwich structures for high strength-to-weight ratio. Many of these components presently use honeycomb cores surrounded by thin high strength face sheets. While honeycomb is used extensively, it can be difficult to form to contoured shapes, must be spliced to reinforce high stress locations, provi ...

  10. Novel Antimicrobial Agents Targeting Drug Resistant Bacterial Biofilms

    SBC: Enantigen Therapeutics            Topic: A09AT004

    This project builds on patterns derived from natural antimicrobial peptide sequences to develop novel compounds with better systemic activity, lower cytotoxicity and broader spectrum activity against multidrug resistant (MDR) pathogens. In Phase I and the
