  1. A Computational Tool for Modeling Geometric Proximity of Independent Systems

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: AF083268

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an accurate viscous CFD algorithm which can include various small gaps between both static and moving components into the analysis. It is not an easy task to model those small gaps in the current CFD codes due to the geometric proximity, especially for moving components. However, those small gaps may have a significant impact on the aerodynamic, aeroel ...

  2. A High Production Rate Process to Fabricate Low Cost High Strength MMCs In Net Shape

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07063

    Military systems are traditionally produced in steel because of excellent mechanical properties and low cost. For a lighter weight and more mobile force, all aspects of military systems are being scrutinized for possible weight reduction. Metal matrix composites with discontinuous reinforcements offer the potential for the very high strength and modulus required for targeted Army applications su ...

  3. A Metallic Nanocomposite with the Highest Strength and Modulus Ratio of Any Metallic Material for Applications Weapons Systems

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: SB082007

    New and innovative materials are required to provide revolutionary capabilities to DoD platforms and weapon systems. Magnesium is the lightest metal that can be applied to defense, structural and commercial applications. Magnesium’s utilization is often restricted since it suffers from inherent poor corrosion resistance and mechanical deficiencies. Nanoreinforcements in magnesium have demonst ...

  6. A Point-of-Care Assay for the Detection of Coxiella Burnetii (Q fever) Infection in Soldiers Deployed to Iraq

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A08178

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field deployable, and a cost effective rapid screening assay for the detection of Q fever infection caused by Coxiella burnetii using human blood and sera. The test will utilize a lateral flow based immunochromatographic system (dipstick). The proposed assay would be a very useful screening tool to assess Q fever infection in the fields, in remo ...

  8. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: BIZ RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: SB082055

    Navy and other armed service personnel frequently encounter environmental conditions that upset the natural circadian rhythm and would profit from a light that offers corrective management. The feasibility of a new berth light will be studied. It will meet the standard requirements but also have spectral, timed, controlled and intense enough light to affect the human circadian system. The advanta ...

  10. A Unique Process for the Bulk Anodizing of Small Aluminum Parts

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N08114

    Currently, small aluminum parts are racked on aluminum prongs for anodizing which is time consuming, ineffective and costly. Bulk anodizing of small parts without the need for individual racking of parts has become a necessity for anodizing small arms parts to reduce cost, and enhance performance and reliability including uniformity of the anodized layer. Barrel type anodizing in state-of-the-art ...
