  1. High Resolution Simulation of Liquid Jet Ejection and Aerosolization for Chemical/Biological Defense

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High resolution modeling of the aerosolization process for relatively large liquid jets is needed to quantify the dispersion of hazardous chemical or biological agents from damaged/punctured containers. A second application is the prediction of thedistribution of neutralization agents injected into clouds of hazardous chemical or biological agents. A high fidelity model is needed to provide accura ...

  2. Attitude Control System for Laser Lightcraft

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing the cost of launching payloads into low earth orbit by a factor of 10 or 100 requires revolutionary changes in launching architectures. The Laser Lightcraft holds the potential for such savings by placing the bulk of the propulsion system on theground by using a ground-based laser to provide the impulse for lifting the payload. Attitude control for the Lightcraft is critical. This Phas ...

  3. Agent Defeat Short Term Neutralization Data Colloction and Modeling

    SBC: AUBURN CHEMICAL CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    This research will determine extent and nature of the neutralization of bacterial spores when they are exposed, for very short times to high temperatures, pressures, and chemicals important in Agent Defeat weapons.. An exposure system will be constructedcapable of providing the ultra-short exposure times (on the order of ms) that are characteristic of bomb explosions and will be capable of exposi ...

  4. Truth Quest: Enabling Operational/Exercise Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II project will address enhancing ATR by developing techniques that use single and fused remotely sensed data sets to precisely characterize terrain environments, areas of potential trafficability, and areas of EOC clutter that can be ignored bythe ATR algorithms. These precision EOC identification and clutter-removal processes can be utilized as (1) a pre-ATR (terrain/ target potential ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Enhanced Strength Aerospace Carbon Foam Heat Exchanger

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N/A

    Touchstone Research Laboratory and its partners propose to investigate the utilization of lightweight and efficient carbon foam for heat exchangers in aircraft. In general, carbon foams have the potential to be a revolutionary material in aerospace due totheir light weight and thermal management capabilities. CFOAMr should meet the cost criteria since it is produced from bituminous coal and is mu ...

  9. Precision Targeting System

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, target detection and identification can be extremely difficult, especially at extended ranges. There is a need for a precision targeting system which can operate in a high-altitude environment and detect/ID/locatethese deep-hide targets. Photon-X proposes a new and innovative passive EO technique which can provide new innovative target characteristics fo ...
