  1. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...

  2. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density fuel in munitions and propellants. Its superior energy density makes it attractive as a fuel component in conventional solid propellants, as well as fuel slurries for ramjet applications. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical density impulses of 1600-1800 sec-g/cm3 have been reported, 45% higher than the best hydrocarbon formulation. Bo ...

  3. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T003

    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  5. Intracranial Hematoma/ Burr Hole and Trauma Flap Simulator

    SBC: VEREFI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD05T004

    Traumatic brain injury has dramatically increased in military and civilian settings owing to widespread bombings and improvised explosive devices. In many battlefield settings, the availability of neurosurgeons is limited. However, rapid treatment of intracranial hematomas can save lives and limit permanent neurologic sequelae. Training non-neurosurgeons to perform emergency burr holes and limi ...

  6. An Automated Design Optimization Tool for Electromagnetic Control of Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF04T009

    This STTR Phase II project proposes to develop an automated design optimization tool for electromagnetic flow control based on the gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett scheme and the discrete adjoint optimization method. The adjoint method has already proved successful for dealing with both transonic aerodynamic shape and aero-structural optimization problems and has been extensively tested with the Euler equa ...

  7. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...
