  1. A Simulation Environment for Aerodynamic Analysis and Design of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: Streamline Numerics, Inc.            Topic: AF06T021

    The work proposed here aims to develop a combined simulation and experimental capability to enhance the understanding of unsteady wing aerodynamics of flapping micro air vehicles (MAVs) and to assist in design and control of such vehicles. The overall goal is to use an advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver in conjunction with experiments for this purpose. Specifically, we aim to stud ...

  2. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...

  4. Communication Analysis for Enhanced Team Performance in the AOC

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF06T027

    Improving team communication in distributed C2 environments must start with addressing underlying components of communication problems. First, it is important to understand what defines “good” communications (e.g., domain-specific frequencies, types, shifts from explicit to implicit communication) and what communications, or lack thereof, contribute to breakdowns. By neglecting the examinati ...

  7. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  8. Development of Synthesis and Large Scale Production Technology for Ultrahigh Energy and Density Fluoro-Organic Compounds

    SBC: New Era Technology            Topic: N/A

    This STTR is to address the technical feasibility and commercial aspects of producing high-density fluorine-rich compounds that are significantly more reactive and energetic than conventional explosives to neutralize and destroy chemical and biologicalagents. The proposed project incorporates the outstanding scientific research base of the University of Florida Department of Chemistry with the tec ...

  9. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  10. Direct Write Light Emitting Arrays for Display on Flexible Conformable Surfaces

    SBC: nScrypt, Inc.            Topic: AF06T034

    The proposed project focuses on the development of fully inorganic phosphor TFEL arrays with NPs layer. EL arrays are thin, bright, flexible and flat and could be easily mounted on conformal surfaces. Devices have 179o viewing angle and because they do not contain filaments or mechanical parts, they are not susceptible to shock and vibration. The direct write fabrication and layer by layer metho ...
