  1. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  4. A New Nanocomposite Rubber Liner for Tires

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Halobutyl rubber is used as an inner liner for tubeless automotive tires because of its low permeability to gases and good compatibility with other tire materials. However, at high pressures and over prolonged time periods, tires leak. Factors such as under-inflation and heat are major contributors to tire damage. While the tires are slowly losing air pressure, consumers also do not maintain c ...

  5. Recycling of Portland Cement Concrete

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to investigate a concept of a shock producing component that will be the basis of a machine to remove deteriorated concrete pavement. The principal has been proven feasible, but further demonstration has to be accomplished to proceed with application and expense of continued development of a Road Remover/Recycler. This machine will move continuously on a lane width of pavement a ...
