  1. Highly-Scalable Computational Algorithms for Solving Aerostructural FSI Problems on Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: Traditional multidisciplinary solvers function by solving the individual governing equations on computer clusters. In the case of aero-elastic Fluid-Structures Interaction (FSI) simulations, individual solvers have disparate requirements for optimal performance. CFD codes use iterative schemes and distributed memory, while CSD codes, use direct linear-solvers and utilize shared memory t ...

  3. High Fidelity Simulation Tools for Green Monopropellant Catalytic Thruster Degradation Mitigation and Performance Improvement

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF093189

    The U.S. Air Force is developing a catalytic thruster for advanced high density-specific impulse green monopropellants. The temperature and pressure generated in a green monopropellant thruster is much higher than with conventional hydrazine monopropellant, resulting in degradation of the catalyst. Therefore, developing and applying a model for predicting catalyst degradation and thruster performa ...

  4. Nanomaterial Safety Assessment Platform

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF103031

    ABSTRACT: Nanomaterials promise to bring critical advancements to technologies and products affecting multiple DoD mission areas. A major obstacle to realizing the strategic benefits of nanomaterials is the absence of computational risk assessment tools that allow nanomaterial developers to integrate and translate dose-response data and hazard rankings across in vitro and in vivo systems, between ...

  5. Multiscale Modeling of Nano Effects on Major Human Organs in the Body

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF103031

    ABSTRACT: Although nanomaterials have demonstrated potential for widespread applications, toxicology of these materials has not been thoroughly evaluated under different exposure scenarios. We propose to develop a comprehensive software tool integrating multidisciplinary physiology and systems biology approaches for modeling nanomaterial uptake, disposition, transport within the body and toxicity ...

  7. E-band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier with Innovative Carbon Nanotube Cathode

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF103074

    ABSTRACT: Existing satellite communication devices use Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs), which operate in the ultra-high frequency, super-high frequency, or extremely-high frequency bands. Because these TWTAs use thermionic cathodes, they are bulky and heavy, and take valuable volume and weight budget in a satellite. Recently, the Air Force identified needs for a compact (

  8. High Speed, Watt Class Multi-access Modulators for Airborne and Spaceborne Communications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF103096

    ABSTRACT: In order to achieve high data transmission rates (>40Gbps), it is necessary to use external modulators as direct diode modulation can be limited by chirping, parasitics or microwave effects. Traditional amplitude modulation is done with Mach Zehnder Interferometers or directional couplers. Unfortunately, this technology is not multi-access compatible without the introduction of multipl ...

  9. Strategically Radiation-Hardened Star Tracker

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF103114

    ABSTRACT: Scientic, Inc. and Comtec AeroAstro (CAA) in partnership proposes to determine intrinsic radiation hardness of the CAA MST design in order to identify requirements needed for a strategic radiation level star tracker that will include tolerance to natural space radiation environments. We will investigate improvements in the MST design such as EEE parts replacements, innovative shieldin ...

  10. Rapid Assembly and Alignment of Electro-Optical Sensor Payloads

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: AF103118

    ABSTRACT: Optical component fabrication for electro-optical sensor payloads has advanced in leaps and bounds; however, component assembly into a final system has not. Payload designers often must choose between fabricating optical components with extremely tight mechanical tolerances to support snap-together assembly, or using less-tightly-toleranced components that must be painstakingly aligned ...
