  1. Algorithm Development for Reconfigurable Computing Architectures

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: AF07T017

    Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are at the core of Air Force scientific priorities in air vehicle design. The goal of this STTR is to provide unprecedent computational power to the solution of large-scale PDE problems in 3D through the use of reconfigurable computing linear equation solvers based on iterative methods. The result of this research will be packaged in a system that, by the e ...

  2. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF05T010

    This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to chemistry, where quantum chemical methods must be extremely accurate to yield reliable rate constants. Yet u ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Electromagnetic Launching for Affordable Agile Access to Space

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: AF05T001

    The conceptual design of a novel, hypersonic electromagnetic launch system has been developed. Phase-1 assumed a 100-kg projectile leaving the launcher at 7,000 m/sec. The projectile is propelled and levitated by electromagnetic forces inside a tube filled with low pressure helium. A controlled acceleration profile, fully adjustable to the requirements of various missions, is used to reach 5000 ge ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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) ...

  7. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention Allocation

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a quantitative dynamical model of human attention and perception. Recent experimental findings have demonstrated the importance of event timing for perceiving and attending to complex sequences of events: 1) The auditory system uses active temporal mechanisms for analysis of sound from the earliest stages of sensation through the ...

  8. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention and Perception

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The development of tractable mathematical models of gradient-frequency nonlinear resonator networks is critical to advanced computer applications that require faithful computer simulation of human attention and/or perception. Conventional linear resonator models are computationally and analytically tractable, however tractability is achieved at the expense of capturing many significant features of ...

  9. Infrared Fiber for Conversion & Routing

    SBC: COHERENT PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: AF07T037

    We propose to use nano-structured Silicon photonic crystal fiber to convert near infrared (NIR) to Mid infrared using parametric amplification. Silicon has intrinsic properties that lend itself to this application. Silicon has very low loss in the Mid IR, high damage threshold, and high environmental stability. However, NIR pumps experience strong loss in bulk silicon crystal due to two-photon ...

  10. 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 ...
