  2. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the visible to mid-wave IR. EO/IR sensors have been very successful for terrain imaging from subsonic aircraft and from satellites. Imaging using these platforms has been studied extensively. EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the v ...

  3. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  4. Improved MWIR LED Arrays on GaAs and Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. While a proven technology, these arrays are limited in frame-rate and dynamic range, and can be prohibitively costly as array size increases. Alternative technologies ...

  5. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Determination of the Mechanisms for the Plasma Deactivation of Biomaterials

    SBC: MICROENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Based on several experimental results during Phase I, MicroEnergy Technologies has analyzed and sequenced the protein that initially leaves Bacillus bacteria that reveals deactivation of spores. We are proposing a unique plasma mechanism:(1) spore membranes are ruptured as seen in SEM micrographs of plasma treated biomaterials,(2) uniform glow discharge noble-gas argon and air plasmas produced di ...

  10. 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 ...
