  1. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    Fine grained BST ceramics with high density has attractive properties including nonlinearity, low dielectric loss and high dielectric breakdown strength to realize high tunability. In Phase I program we demonstrated that modification of powder characteristics and composition in nano BST powder resulted in greater than 65% tunability at 250KV/cm with ~500KV/cm breakdown strength and Q value greate ...

  2. High-Fidelity Simulation of Dynamic Weakly Ionized Plasma Phenomena

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF09BT10

    In the Phase I program, we will design an experiment/test article, and test/validate instrumentation and diagnostics, to be used to obtain plasma properties about a hypersonic vehicle having characteristics and features of the RAM-C flight vehicle. The test model is to be installed and tested in the LENS-XX facility (in Phase II) and experimental planning will be supported by detailed numerical si ...

  3. A Toolkit for Deployable Best Practices

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: OSD08T002

    Discovery Machine, Inc. (DMI) is partnered with Pennsylvania State University and SAIC (the DMI team) to produce a best practices capture system that goes beyond the storage and dissemination of lessons learned. The proposed system will leverage warfighters’ specific knowledge as deployable knowledge assets. These knowledge assets will be executable best practices that can be embedded in job ...

  4. Dynamics-based Nondestructive Structural Health Monitoring Techniques

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF08T016

    FBS, Inc. and Penn State, during Phase I of its Air Force Phase I STTR contract, demonstrated high sensitivity defect detection in both isotropic metallic and anisotropic composite structures using a novel ultrasonic modal analysis technique (UMAT). The resulting technology which is a merge of vibration modal analysis and the ultrasonic guided wave technique has shown great potential for providing ...

  6. Cooperative Deployment of Next Generation Chemical Standoff Sensors

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: A10AT022

    MESH, Inc. has developed a method to take data from multiple fixed site standoff sensors and generate concentration maps using either triangulation or tomography. The programs that MESH has developed will be modified to allow standoff from moving platforms to be used in the data merging process. A simulation suite of tools, also developed by MESH, will be used to set the requirements on the accu ...

  9. Biomimetics for treating biofilm-embedded infections

    SBC: PolyMedix, Inc.            Topic: ARMY09T004

    Multi-drug resistant (MDR) biofilms are one of the most difficult bacterial infections to treat. Current antibiotics are increasingly unable to cure these infections; underscoring the need to develop new antibiotics that operate through novel mechanisms which overcome the biofilm environment. PolyMedix has discovered a novel class of antibiotics, SMAMPS (small mimics of antimicrobial peptides), t ...
