  1. Interferometric Angle Measurement

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: 9060263R

    Optical Physics Company is proposing to implement an interferometric angle sensor for the purpose of determining the relative angle between the two diffracting crystals. Two approaches can be pursued, namely (1) the dual grating interferometer, and (2) the angle interferometer. The estimated cost of materials for building the angle sensor in quantity ranges between $2K and $12K. The expected accur ...

  2. Environmental Chambers for and Integrating Sphere-based Weathering Device

    SBC: Measurement Analysis Corporation            Topic: 9060173TT

    Using a new concept for humidity control, based on a proprietary saturated air source, MAC will develop a design for an environmental chamber for use with NIST’s SPHERE UV source, in weathering or other UV degradation studies. The chamber will interface to the exit port of the SPHERE, maintaining the material coupons, mounted in a standardized sample holder, at a programmed temperature and relat ...

  3. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  4. Turbulent Combustion Interaction Models for LES Simulations of High Speed Flow

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD10T001

    At present, the predictive capability of simulation codes and models used in the conceptual planning and design of high-speed propulsion systems is limited by the ability to describe the complex flow fields inside the combustor, mixing models, detailed chemistry and turbulence-chemistry interactions, and subgrid-closure models. The objective of the proposed work is to develop and validate a high-f ...

  5. Nano-Sintered High Thermal Conductivity Composites

    SBC: Creative Electron Inc.            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project will develop carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) material systems incorporating metallic nanoparticles with low-temperature sintering properties to render structures with very high transverse thermal conductivity. CFRPs are already used in a myriad of applications requiring high strength-to-weight ratio, but their poor transverse thermal conductivity limits ...

  6. Photoactivatable Protean Glass/Ceramic Materials for Imbedded Miniature Devices

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: Photosensitive protean materials form essentially a new class of materials which are manufactured in one state but its select material properties can be physically and locally altered through patterning and lithography. In this proposed research, we will demonstrate the feasibility of creation of conductive copper lines imbued in the glass by using novel glasses with laser direct writin ...

  7. Photostructural Glass Ceramics and Optimized Processing for Laser Initiated 3D Conductors (PhotoCon)

    SBC: OBALON, LLC            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR effort a small business company Obalon LLC is teaming up with industry leader Aerospace Corporation in order to develop novel photostructural glass ceramic composition PhotoCon with capability of laser induced 3D conductor patterning inside the bulk material. Following the photolytic process of laser exposure and the development of latent image the team will implement the s ...

  8. Saliency Annotation of Image and Video Data


    ABSTRACT: With the current flood of surveillance data available to ISR analysts, human attention has become the most valuable resource to ISR systems. Although automated tracking and labeling algorithms are now capable of automatically identifying and roughly classifying targets, the current rate of false alarms and irrelevant annotations makes existing technology unsuitable for wide-area persist ...

  9. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Advanced computational methods and increased computing power have brought about a new age of modeling and simulation capability for full aircraft configurations. These advances have provided the potential ability to conduct accurate computational analysis representative of experimental flight testing, reducing both risk and cost. A unified toolset to conduct a complete end-to-end virtua ...

  10. Tools for Modeling&Simulation of Molecular and Nanoelectronics Devices

    SBC: Atherton Quantum Insight, LLC            Topic: AF10BT21

    ABSTRACT: We will develop new multiscale methods that combine atomic-scale modeling of the active part of nano-sized electronic devices with continuum models of the surrounding passive parts. The methods will be based on highly parallel algorithms to allow for simulations of realistic device structures. The developed methods will be integrated into a new multiscale simulation module to the ATK pa ...
