  1. Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma optimization for efficient generation of UV radiation and active radicals

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma sources are being actively developed for a variety of industrial and military applications. Many of these applications employ ultraviolet (UV) radiation or active species (radicals) generated by the plasma. Theefficiency of plasma sources depends on the energy distribution of electrons which are mainly responsible for the production of radicals and excit ...

  2. Axial Pintle Controlled Constant Volume Combustion Bipropellant Pulsed Rocket Motor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Idealized analysis has shown that, for the same propellant supply pressure, higher performance can be obtained in a constant-volume combustion device than the traditional constant pressure rocket. CFDRC proposes an effort consisting of multiple levels ofanalysis, followed by design and testing of a rocket engine prototype that will substantiate this claim. Recent relevant experience in advanced ...

  3. Using Electrical Resistivity Techniques to Monitor the Long-Term Health of Sub-Surface Reactive Barriers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    72571B03-I Reactive subsurface barriers for groundwater remediation require systems to ensure that the barrier is continuous along its length (without any breaks or holes) and that it continues to remediate the groundwater passing through the barrier. Electrical resistivity measurements made within the barrier wall offer the potential to reliably address these needs in a low-cost manner. This ...

  4. Using Partitioning Tracer Technology to Characterize Contaminated Pipelines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    70607B02-II Improved technologies are needed to assist in the decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) of facilities used to support nuclear weapons production. In particular, a cost-effective approach is required to determine whether or not piping systems are contaminated and if so, to determine the level of contamination and its location in the pipe. This project will use both conservative a ...

  5. Rapidly Throttleable Oxygen Generation Using Microwave Plasma Decomposition of Rod Fed Perchlorates

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Elimination of high pressure and cryogenic propellant storage and feed systems for undersea vehicle fuel cells is of interest to the Navy. CFDRC proposes the development of a rechargeable oxygen generator based on microwave plasma decomposition ofsolid-state lithium perchlorate. The generator will employ the atmospheric microwave plasma torch technology recently demonstrated by the Plasma Science ...

  6. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible A/I system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflictand the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  7. Autonomous Underwater Sensing of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nomadics, teamed with the University of Rhode Island, proposes to develop sensors for the detection of weapons of mass destruction underwater for protection of the nation's coastlines and the protection of deployed forces. The Phase I effort successfullydemonstrated that payloads using these types of sensors could be deployed on REMUS underwater autonomous vehicles and be capable of detecting exp ...

  8. SuMo SERS: A Novel, High-Reliability CBW Agent Detection System Using Surface-Modified Gold Nanoparticles as a SERS Substrate

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful technique for detecting and identifying target analytes, such as CBW agents, even at very small concentrations. However, traditional SERS techniques often suffer from poor reliability andreproducibility. Nanoparticle-based SERS has a tremendous advantage over bulk-surface SERS due to a very high amount of surface area for interaction in a ...

  9. Ecologically Benign Corrosion Protection by Stratified Coatings

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per year ...
