  1. Nanophase Technology for Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) Battery Safety

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Many of the safety incidents that occur with lithium-ion batteries are due to the carbon anode currently in use. Incidents can occur that include overcharging in the system, which causes lithium metal to plate out of the cell and passivation at the surfaces of the electrodes in the cell, which can also cause an incident. Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanomaterials in a "ro ...

  2. Organically Assured Routing System (OARS) for the Airborne Network

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF073019

    The Air Force has identified the need for an assured routing system for the Airborne Network (AN) that will protect the routing infrastructure from security attacks designed to disrupt the operation of the network. Subversion of the network routing function by attackers could be catastrophic for mission-critical applications running on the AN. This is because security attacks on the routing functi ...

  3. Border Gateway Protocol with Mobility Extensions (BGP-MX)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF081019

    The inter-domain routing protocol BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) was designed for statically configured land-based networks, which experience infrequent topology changes. As a result, BGP performs poorly in airborne network environment, where the topology of the networks is constantly changing because of domains mobility. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) has, as part of its Phase I effort, ...

  4. Environmentally Friendly Cold Plasma Coating Removal Techniques

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF081041

    The DOD requires an environmentally friendly, rapid, and non-destructive method to selectively remove coatings from composite substrates.  Atmospheric Plasma Solutions Inc. (APS) has developed a cold atmospheric plasma process to accomplish this goal. Current processes for the removal of coatings from composite materials are slow, expensive, and potentially damaging to the environment. APS has de ...

  5. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon HF radar requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce multipath reflections off the target, we propose two new high resolution signal processing methods for discriminating small time delay differences from a seque ...

  6. The Design of Defensive Software Systems

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD09IA3

    CML proposes to extend its current work in dynamic kernel monitoring for attack recognition and mitigation. The focus of this proposal is on mitigating the effects of an attack on executing software process by an individual user. The object of interest is the mapping of the activity of a user of a software system onto a model of their normal use of this software. In the construction of a mathe ...

  7. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT25

    Development of a compliant microfabricated heat exchanger to work with thermoelectric devices as a means of power generation for hypersonic vehicles is proposed. Polymer-based materials provide to provide compression on the thermoelectric module, to ensure optimal thermal contact, while allowing for compliance to allow for the change in materials expansion without exceeding the failure point of th ...

  8. Technologies for the Rapid Curing of Composite Parts

    SBC: FIREBIRD ADVANCED MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF083C068

    Certain polymer resins used in the manufacturing of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) aerospace components have relatively long autoclave cure cycles on the order of 6 hours or more.  These long cure cycles cause bottlenecks and inefficiencies when producing composite parts with these thermoset resins. This project will investigate and develop a new manufacturing process for rapidly curing c ...

  9. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR- fmCortex

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF07T021

    The focus of our initial work was to research and lay the foundation to develop a system to effectively manage linear and collaborative workflows in a context of existing and unfolding mission requirements using advanced methodologies to address sequencing in task allocation and distribution processes.  Our proposed solution - fmCortex - seeks to apply advanced fusion processes and dynamic resour ...

  10. Nanotailored Carbon Fibers via Ultra-Long Carbon Nanotubes: Scale-Up and Post Processing

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF08T028

    The goal of the proposed work is to refine and scale-up the production of high strength continuous threads prepared from ultra-long carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The NanoTechLabs, Inc. (NTL) team will work to produce fibers spun from NTL’s ultra-long CNTs. Significant challenges remain that are primarily related to the development of scalable methods for making high strength, CNT threads for the prod ...
