  2. A Pressure-Dependent Detailed Chemical Kinetic Model for JP-10 Combustion

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N09T011

    Investigations into JP-10 combustion chemistry thus far can be characterized as preliminary. The few detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms that have been published are limited in their ability to reproduce experimental data. The combustion chemistry of JP-10 is highly complex and involves hundreds if not thousands of species and thousands of chemical reactions. A detailed kinetic model capable of ...

  3. Advanced Neutrally Buoyant Rechargeable Batteries Based on Ceramic Electrolyte Separators

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N07T022

    A battery is proposed that utilizes a Li+ conducting, solid-electrolyte separator, LiSICON, Li metal anode and high-capacity cathode. The LiSICON ceramic is fabricated using state of the art tape casting methods which allows composite structures of porous and dense layers ~100ƒÝm thick. The layered structure increase mechanical strength and decrease interfacial and bulk resistances. The high-ene ...

  4. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    ddddThe objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling ...

  5. Development of Multi-layer Aluminum Alloys for Armor

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: A09AT010

    The proposed STTR Phase I study is aimed at exploring lightweight and multi-layer materials towards enhancing their armor performance. Different Al alloys will be assembled into a two-layer configuration with good metallic bond between inter-layers. 2139-T8 Al alloy evolved by efforts of Alcan and the Army Research Laboratory will be selected as one of the layers in the laminated assembly. 5083, 7 ...

  6. Diffusion Geometry Based Nonlinear Methods for Hyperspectral Change Detection

    SBC: Plain Sight Systems Inc            Topic: AF08BT24

    We propose a suite of nonlinear image processing algorithms derived from the analysis of the underlying diffusion geometry of a collection of hyperspectral images of interest. These tools enable the comparison of spatio-spectral features of hyperspectral images acquired under different conditions, for the purposes of target detection, change detection and anomaly assessment. This methodology also ...

  7. Force Fields for Modeling of Ionic Liquids

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF07T004

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to develop and validate a transferable force field that will allow for reliable, accurate and efficient prediction of thermodynamic (heat of vaporization, surface tension, density, melting temperature), transport (viscosity, ionic and thermal conductivity, self-diffusion coefficients) and structural properties for a wide variety of ionic liquids (ILs) ...

  8. High Efficiency Stretchable (Highly Conformable) Photovoltaics for Expeditionary Forces

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N09T020

    The next generation of photovoltaic systems need to meet both physical (shape, size, packaging, durability) and electronic (efficiency, stability) requirements of applications that are not possible to implement today. One of these requirements is to be able to stretch electronic devices without sacrificing the performance and lifetime. Commercially available photovoltaics that incorporate thin sem ...

  9. Improved Soft Magnetic Materials for High Power Density Electrical Machines

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF08T031

    This STTR Phase I proposal is aimed to develop high induction soft magnetic nano-composites (SMNC) capable of high power operations at frequency between 20 kHz to 10 MHz. With Spectrum Magnetics’ proprietary technique, leveraged with research excellence in magnetic materials at the University of Delaware, we will develop magnetic nano-entities of large aspect ratio which effectively eli ...

  10. Linking Output Activity to Outcomes/Impacts in Complex Contingency Environments

    SBC: CyberConnect EZ, LLC            Topic: OSD08T003

    One deficiency of existing planning systems is that they may report mission-level progresses, but are incapable of associating them with desired mission-level outcomes/impacts. USG agency planners and other organizations have produced general frameworks for measuring outcomes/impacts such as MPICE, but clearly planning activities and outcome/impact measure activities remain disconnected. We aim to ...
