  3. Transformational and Environmentally Efficient Electrochemical and Hydrometallurgy Recovery of Rhenium from Secondary Sources

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD12T04

    The goal of this research is to investigate transformational and environmentally efficient electrochemical and hydrometallurgical methods for extraction and recovery of rhenium from recycled superalloys or other rhenium-containing materials. The primary f

  4. M&S Uncertainty Quantification Using an Ant Swarm Model

    SBC: PRIME SOLUTIONS GROUP, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA12T007

    Appropriate models for missile defense systems (MDS) need to include both epistemic and aleatoric variables. This prevents the calculation of conventional confidence intervals and significance levels for the models, since these require that a statistical probability distribution be assumed wherever one is not actually known. Our proposed uncertainty quantification system will provide BMD with an ...

  5. Modeling to Quantify Improved Durability of Superfinish Gear Processing

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT007

    Under this STTR, Sentient Corporation, along with the Ohio State University GearLab as a research partner, will develop a probabilistic physics-based damage modeling tool for the simulation of superfinished gear components. This model will consider critical surface, material, and load parameters for components manufactured from common gear steels. The model will also analyze superfinished as well ...

  6. Industrial Production Methods for Ultra-High-Strength Fibers based on Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A12aT026

    This proposal seeks to develop a viable, cost-effective industrial technique for production of ultrastrong, flexible and tough carbon fibers composed of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) combined with a small amount of polymer matrix, based on a continuous process for manufacturing these fibers. MER"s innovative technology for the efficient production of uniquely thin and highly twisted DWNT ...

  7. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    As infrared (IR) electo-optical sensors improve in both availability and quality a strong need exists to have comparable improvements in the performance of military obscurants within the IR band. Conventional approaches for creating effective IR obscurants have relied primarily on shaped metal particles with high aspect ratios (e.g. rods, flakes). While efficient it is difficult to create very ...

  8. Modeling of Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Blends

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: N13AT002

    The overall goal of this Phase I project is to show the feasibility of using state-of-the-art parameterization tools for shape changes (i.e., volumetric deformation/morphing provided by Sculptor) coupled with a fast FEA tool (i.e., the MAX method) to quickly calculate the dynamic response of the many different shapes necessary for sample-based stochastic vibration analysis of IBRs with blends. The ...

  9. Effective Cyber Situation Awareness (CSA) Assessment and Training

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T08

    The recent increase in cyber attacks against United States critical assets has greatly expanded the need for effective cyber defenses. Human cyber analysts are an essential element in these efforts. Information overload and a concomitant lack of comprehensive cyber situation awareness are common problems that hamper the effectiveness of analysis. Systems that can carry out human-in-the-loop simula ...

  10. Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Virtual Flight Test

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: The overall technical objectives of the Phase II efforts are to develop, implement, and validate a computationally efficient and accurate buffet load predictive capability in ZONA's Stick-To-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation (STS-DFS). This capability will allow a continuous simulation of the aircraft in STS-DFS for smoothly varying angle of attack and speed providing aircraft attit ...
