  1. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  2. Micro Laser Plasma Thrusters for Small Satellites

    SBC: Photonic Associates, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The growing market for repositioning small satellites requires the development of flexible, energy-efficient, robust but microweight thrusters. Microthruster concepts are scaledowns of conventional thruster designs to very small physical scale, e.g., chemical rockets, pulsed gas thrusters and plasmajets. However, behavior of at small scales is not predicted by behavior at larger scales. We propose ...

  3. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  4. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  5. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop efficient sensitivity analysis methods based on adjoint techniques for multi-disciplinary time-dependent problems. The approach is based on the discrete adjoint, which is derived and implemented on a software component basis, with the various multidisciplinary software components being linked together through a Python interface, thus preservi ...

  6. Electromagnetic Simulation Software for Strongly Coupled Plasmas

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF11BT23

    ABSTRACT: Strong coupling in ionized plasmas occurs when inter-particle interactions result in correlation energies that are comparable to the mean kinetic energy of the thermal motion of individual particles. Strongly coupled plasmas are known to be present in a number of physical systems including ultra-cold plasmas created in the laboratory and present in the ionosphere, explosive gases associ ...
