  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. Development of Ultra-Refined Microstructure in Friction Stir Processed 7xxx Aluminum using Microstructural and Thermomechanical Modeling

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF07T038

    Applied Optimization, Inc., in working with EWI, Inc., Ohio State University, and Boeing Phantom Works, proposes to demonstrate feasibility of using microstructural models to predict the required processing conditions that can produce nanostructured grain sizes in the thermo-mechanical affected zone in friction stir processing [FSP] of 7075-T6 aluminum. First step will be an FSP trial using the p ...

  4. 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) ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: FUTURE TEK USA CORP.            Topic: AF05T024

    Permanent magnet materials with high energy product of (BH)max = 30 MGOe at 450°C are needed for advanced Air Force power and weapon systems, which represents a 150% improvement in magnetic performance. Owing to the degree of difficulty this objective is unlikely achievable if using any existing permanent magnets, such as conventional high temperature SmCo5, Sm2Co17, or nanocomposite Sm2Co17/Fe- ...

  8. Diamond Studded Micro Helix TWT

    SBC: GENVAC HOLDINGS, LTD., DBA: TERAPHYSICS            Topic: AF06T022

    The radical design proposed here essentially reinvents the venerable helical TWT. The cathode, electron gun, slow wave circuit, output coupler and collector would all be significantly different from current conventional practice. This is not innovation for the sake of novelty. Without radical changes, the physical limitations of the conventional helical TWT, which is the work horse of lower fre ...

  9. Electronic-Resonance-Enhanced CARS for Quantitative in-situ Nitric-Oxide Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF05T012

    The primary objective of this Phase-II research effort will be to complete the development of the electronic-resonance-enhanced coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (ERE-CARS) technique for quantitative in-situ concentration measurements of nitric oxide (NO) in high-pressure flames. The research effort will be focused 1) on investigating the pressure-scaling laws for NO ERE-CARS at pressures up t ...

  10. Wavelength and Polarization Agile Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: MILSYS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF07T027

    Development of new generation of integrated FPAs that are both multispectral and polarimetric in the IR window is proposed for the detection and classification of battlespace objects. The use of existing sensor and camera technology, as the baseline, allows for reduced prototype and development time. The integration of both the wavelength and polarization selective elements within the FPA will p ...
