  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. 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 ...

  5. Heated Cloud Rise Model

    SBC: SECA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The rise of launch clouds to stabilization is forced by an altitude varying distribution of momention and buoyancy (temperature). In most of the plume, the temperature excess over that of the atmosphere is large and the buoyant force accelerates the launch products to "high" altitudes. The acceleration is retarded by the exhaust velocity, but augmented strongly by water vapor phase changes and pos ...

    SBIR Phase II 1994 Department of DefenseAir Force

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Development of combined Air-Turbo-Rocket(ATC/Scramjet component technology suitable for numerous USAF propulsion missions is proposed. Preliminary component design will focus on attaining fully throttleable boost and sustain thrust, vehicle speeds from Mach 0 to 8, and range as required. Activities during Phase I include: (1) Generator of an ATR/Scramjet system and component analysis methodology b ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Non-Contact, 3-D Measurement for Aircraft Surfaces

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

    In an Air Logistics Center (ALC) environment, where modification and maintenance of fighter (and other) aircraft is performed, there exists an urgent need for the efficient and accurate verification of work performed. This is of utmost importance whenwork is performed on the airfoil or control surfaces. Current techniques using mechanical templates, triangulation, mechanical articulated linkage ...
