  1. Cyber-Battle Management System (CBMS)

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: AF08BT06

    ABSTRACT: We are experiencing grand challenges to ensure that cyberspace resources and services can effectively tolerate epidemic-style cybperattacks, and manage automatically its resources and services. Currently, there are no effective commercial technologies to secure and protect cyberspace resources and services; they are mainly labor intensive (e.g., patch update), signature based, and not f ...

    STTR Phase II 2011 Department of DefenseAir Force

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: AF08BT07

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments of advanced hybrid metallic structural concepts have been promising for enhancing durability and damage tolerance (D & DT) of unitized aircraft structures. The Alpha STAR team, comprised of Alcoa, Northrop Grumman (NGC), and Southwest Research Institute, proposes to demonstrate and verify/validate the application of advanced hybrid materials in a realistic large sca ...

  3. Variable Thrust/Specific Impulse Electrospray Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Future Department of Defense space missions require precise, fine-positioning capabilities combined with large maneuvrability requirements. The purpose of this STTR is to: a) identify propellants for electrospray propulsion able to cover, at high propulsion efficiency, an unusually wide range of specific impulses, from several hundred seconds, typical today of colloidal propulsion up to ...

  4. Thermally Remendable Composite Structures with Resistive Heating Network of Carbon Fibers

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: AF08BT11

    ABSTRACT: Carbon fiber-reinforced composites undergo subcritical damage well before final failure. A self-healing composite material is proposed that will autonomously sense and repair localized damage in composite structures. Healing is accomplished via two main components. The first component is a thermally remendable polymer matrix that is integrated into the structural carbon fiber composite ...

  5. Heat Transfer Prediction in Transitional Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF08BT13

    ABSTRACT: Predicting the wall heat loading experienced by hypersonic vehicles during the transition from laminar to turbulent boundary layer flow is the grand-challenge tackled by the present proposal. Previous studies have not focused completely on this phenomenon. In this work we adopt high-fidelity numerical simulations (Direct Numerical Simulation, DNS) to shed some light on the problem, with ...

  6. Health Monitoring of Composite Structures Using Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF08BT23

    ABSTRACT: Acellent Technologies and University of Delaware jointly propose to develop an integrated system of carbon nanotubes (CNT) and piezoelectric sensors for structural health monitoring (SHM) of composite structures. The proposed integrated hybrid SHM system will detect the initiation of damage and monitor its growth in composite structures. This system will combine the unique sensing capa ...

  7. Real-time In-situ Impact and Damage Locator in Anisotropic Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Avanti Tech, LLC            Topic: AF08BT27

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II proposal aims at developing and demonstrating the impact/damage monitoring technology whose feasibility was shown in Phase I. The project objective is to demonstrate a new technique based on piezoelectric rosette nodes for (1) locating the points of impact or growing damage in realistic aerospace structures, (2) identifying the magnitude of the impact force, and (3) discr ...

  9. 3D Microfluidic Platform for in vitro Hematopoietic Stem Cell (HSC) Culture


    Poor drug candidates are often identified late in the drug development process (e.g., in the preclinical and clinical phases) and contribute significantly to the high cost and low yield of drug discovery. As a result, new tools are needed to accelerate the assessment of drug candidate toxicity earlier in the drug development process. To address this Chemical/Bio Defense (CBD) need, Physical Optics ...
