    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  2. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  3. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) detail the development of a novel noninvasive microwave sensor to quantify the DoS in marine aluminum alloys. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) DoS quantifications based on the correlation between the surface resistivity with the microstructures of the aluminum alloys, b) measurements o ...

  4. A Platform-Independent Framerwork for Efficient Massively Parallel Execution

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: OSD11T02

    Next-generation high-performance computers (HPCs) are built as massively parallel systems where the parallelism exists at many levels. These systems are a collection of nodes all working together. Each node generally contains more than one processor and each processor contains multiple cores. Managing and efficiently utilizing the different parallelism in such a system is a complex task. Furth ...

  5. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    Many large-scale numerical simulations can be broken down into common mathematical routines. While the applications may differ, they often need to perform standard functions such as system solves, Fourier transforms, or eigenvalue calculations. Consequently, producing fast, efficient implementations of these methods will benefit a broad range of Air Force applications. Graphics Processing Units (G ...

  6. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    ABSTRACT: High-performance computing (HPC) programmers and domain experts, such as those in the Air Force's research divisions, develop solvers for a wide variety of application areas such as modeling next generation aircraft and weapons designs and advanced image processing analysis. When developing software for HPC systems, the programmer should not spend the majority of their time optimiz ...

  7. Accelerator for UAV Modeling in Near-Ship Environments Based on Commodity Graphics Cards

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N07T004

    UAVS (Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle System) integration with naval vessels is currently realized in limited form. This is largely due to the fact that the operational envelopes of these vehicles are based solely on at-sea flight testing. In addition to the complexities involved with at-sea flight testing, the unsteady nature of ship-airwakes and the use of automated UAV control software necessitates ...

  8. Acoustic Intensity Localization System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04T020

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) proposes the Phase II development of an Acoustic Intensity Localization System (AILS). AILS utilizes a vector hydrophone to measure the latitude-longitude offset to an acoustic projector attached to surface buoy whose position is known via GPS. A major advantage of the AILS concept is that it can operate with extreme precision even at relatively low frequenc ...

  9. Adaptive Fleet Synthetic Scenario Research

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N10AT044

    Together with our research institution partner, the University of Central Florida (UCF) Institute for Simulation and Training (IST), Sonalysts is pleased to submit this proposal to investigate the feasibility of creating a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework for correlation and fusion algorithms that drive scenario generation across many information domains (communication, imagery, track ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...
