  1. A Tactical Decision Support Tool for High Speed Projectiles in Adverse Weather Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N11AT036

    High speed projectile launch decisions always tend toward"clear sky"days because no capability has existed to assess high speed flight risk due to weather in either design or operations. Since clear sky conditions occur about 50% of the time, the risk of mission failure is unknown half of the time when clouds are present. Under a Navy Phase I STTR, CFD Research Corporation and the University of Al ...

  2. Improved Multi Junction Solar Cell Technology for Satellites

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (MJ PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell technology that exhibits enhanced efficiency, and 2) Radiation ...

  3. Fast Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA10T003

    The results of the Phase I effort has identified the feasibility of real-time hardbody thermal solver algorithms on high performance hardware for use by MDA applications and real-time hardware-in-the-loop environments. Phase II development of the thermal solver will be expanded to include complex targets by expanding upon the techniques prototyped in Phase I. A new inline Parallel Euler Solver w ...

  4. Physics Based Modeling Tools for Next-Generation Lithium Ion Battery Performance and Lifetime

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T004

    The MDA is developing the Precision Tracking Space System and other satellite based systems that could benefit from ongoing developments in advanced materials for lithium ion batteries. Unfortunately, the applications driving much of that battery research have less abusive operational cycles than the frequent cycling, and sporadic pulse loads to deep discharge, of MDA satellite applications. Phy ...

  5. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials


    In Phase I we demonstrated a novel in-situ cleaning technique based on UV-activated surface reactions involving ozone and hydrogen to remove organic adsorbates and chemically-bonded impurities, e.g oxides, from the substrate surface. In Phase II the program will develop this process to significantly decrease the density of material defects in large-format, infrared, focal-plane arrays. Electrica ...

  6. Matched Filter Chaos Communications

    SBC: TORCH TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A11aT002

    Chaos is a natural phenomenon that offers unique features that may be exploited to yield communication systems having beneficial characteristics. Useful chaotic oscillators of low-dimensionality can be constructed using simple, inexpensive components."Sensitivity to initial conditions"may be harnessed by means of the Hayes encoder concept to provide modulation of nearly arbitrary efficiency. The ...

  7. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC sy ...

  8. Multi-Attribute Reliability and Maintainability Engineering Assessment Methodology

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF093193

    ABSTRACT: As we move from a paper-based world into a digital environment, the internet will soon evolve from a virtual documentation system into a vibrant ecosystem of data where documents and human actors play an even smaller role. We are currently reaching a tipping point in history concerning data: more data is being manufactured by machines, servers, mobile devices, and software applications ...

  9. Hypervelocity Aerodynamic Interaction of Ballistic Bodies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF103123

    ABSTRACT: CFDRC proposes to develop a high-fidelity simulation capability and probabilistic description for the unguided dispensing of submunition projectiles from weapons systems. The proposed technology will be based on the Loci/CHEM software framework. In the Phase I effort, a rigid body collision module for Loci/CHEM was developed and the accuracy and scalability of the proposed technology wa ...
