  1. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  2. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  3. Surface-Enhanced Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species

    SBC: BIOTOOLS, INC.            Topic: AF05T025

    This Phase II STTR project continues the development of two prior successful Phase I STTR projects aimed at developing surface-enhance Raman optical activity (ROA) on near-infrared tuned gold-coated nanoshells for the detection of chiral molecules, biological molecules and higher biological structures and organisms for applications in the areas of biological research, pharmaceutical development an ...

  4. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomerates through the chamber, after surface detachment, ...

  5. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  6. High efficiency deep green light emitting diode

    SBC: CRYSTAL PLEX            Topic: A07T018

    Crystalplex has developed novel semiconductor nanocrystal technology that can be a platform solution to meet the Army's desire for a light emitting diode (LED) with enhanced output in the deep green region using nanoparticles. This innovation produces an efficient deep green (555-585 nm) nanoparticle emitter capable of sustaining the Army's stated goal of 120 lumens per watt of input power. Crys ...

  7. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    Electron Energy Corporation and University of Delaware propose to develop multiphase nanocomposite magnets with room temperature maximum energy product potentially up to 100 MGOe for high temperature applications. Multiphase nanocomposite magnets could take the advantage of the extremely high coercivity of SmCo alloys, the high saturation magnetization and moderate intrinsic coercivity of other ha ...

  8. Nanostructures for dislocation blocking in infrared detectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A07T006

    HgCdTe is the material of choice for the fabrication of high performance infrared focal plane arrays. HgCdTe is usually grown on CdZnTe substrates, which suffer from cost and size limitations. Silicon substrates do not have these constraints. Although device-quality HgCdTe cannot be grown directly on silicon, a CdTe buffer layer allows its growth. However, large lattice and thermal mismatches betw ...

  9. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    In the Phase I program, EPIR Technologies successfully developed a technology for real-time, simultaneous detection of several types of biological agents using a novel FRET-based detection technique. The development of multiplexed detection capabilities with extremely low false positives in this Phase I program allowed EPIR to establish improved standards in biosensing. Innovative surface modifica ...

  10. Wavelength and Polarization Agile Infrared Detectors based on HgCdTe

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF07T027

    Modern seekers need to detect, recognize, identify and track a variety of autonomously guided munitions under a wide spectrum of conditions and countermeasures. We propose the implementation of hyperspectral and polarization-sensitive techniques based on HgCdTe infrared detectors to improve the accuracy of target detection for these seekers. In the proposed hyperspectral system, the HgCdTe detecto ...
