  1. High Performance Energetic Propellant Ingredient Process Research and Development

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: N16AT021

    CL-20 is the most powerful conventional explosive known, but its high cost has limited its adoption in a range of potential applications. Par of the challenge in making these materials is the complexity of the reaction used to prepare the polycyclic cage. The complexity of this reaction makes it difficult to have insight into the reaction and to improve it. Additionally, several of the intermediat ...

  2. Solid-State Fundamental Mode Green Laser for Ocean Mine Detection

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N13AT023

    Areté proposes the development of Q-switched semiconductor lasers that can be scaled to produce high output peak powers within the blue/green wavelength band. The proposed system will utilize nanostructure quantum wavefunction engineering for gain material designs having extended excited state lifetimes and suppressed non-radiative processes to enable energy storage for high-peak-power optical pu ...

  3. Innovative Multi-scale/Multi-physics based Tool for Predicting Fatigue Crack Initiation and Propagation in Aircraft Structural Components using Phase

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: N16AT003

    The purpose of this Phase II project is to develop computational modeling methods that are able to describe the propagation and interaction of fatigue cracks using the phase-field methodology within the numerical framework of isogeometric analysis (IGA). The resulting computational platform, while focused on fracture and fatigue, will be general, in that any phase-field method can be easily incorp ...

  6. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  7. Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High Altitude

    SBC: Research Logistics Company            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...

  8. Evidence-Based, User-Centered Design Process for Improvement of the Utility of the Surface Electronic Warfare Display Suit

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N11AT031

    In Naval, surface electronic warfare (EW), visual displays form critical bridges between warfighters and the complex operational radio-frequency (RF) spectrum they must monitor and interpret. Surface electronic warfare operators and supervisors must monitor and interact with multiple, stove-piped display systems in order to perform their work. Further, the visual displays they employ are not desig ...

  10. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting Power Cables

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N16AT011

    The proposed program will develop dielectrics for dc superconducting power transmission cables that are cooled with cryogenic helium gas. The Dielectrics will be sealed again helium gas penetration and allow for an operating voltage of 12 kV in a pressure of 2 MPa at 50 K. The dielectrics will be designed for use with all helium facing components of power transmission systems based on CORC cables. ...
