  1. 3D Magnetic Field Modeling


    We propose to employ a novel Boundary Element Method (BEM) numerical technique to develop a parallel computer code that will allow simultaneous solution, in three dimensions (3-D), of the vacuum magnetic vector potential and magnetic field structure for complex geometries. The primary advantages of the chosen approach are the reduction of the dimensionality of the problem from three (volume) to tw ...

  2. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  4. A Sentient Watchdog Instrument for MDA Systems

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: MDA07040

    MSI manufactures multi-processor instrumentation modules. Our latest product is the Embeddable Programmable Instrumentation Circuit (EPIC). The army has funded the EPIC for embedded diagnostics, prognostics and intelligent control of electrical systems in combat vehicles. A new Phase II NAVAIR contract funds transition to a radiation-hard ASIC chip installed in either connectors or LRU. The EPIC ...

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N06T020

    The smaller warcraft envisioned by The Electric Warships and Combat Vehicles Future Naval Capability need to reduce the size and weight of all shipboard systems. Wireless sensors offer enormous potential for meeting these needs by eliminating heavy, costly and failure-prone wiring. Government wireless systems must include an effective security system to prevent attacks on sensitive data and the ...

  6. Adaptive Controls for Aero-Optics Compensation

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF06006

    MZA has teamed with Prof. Steve Gibson of UCLA to propose the development of adaptive wavefront reconstruction and jitter control techniques for the robust, high-bandwidth compensation of aero-optical effects. Through his work with AFRL, HEL JTO, and AFOSR, Prof. Gibson is on the forefront of adaptive control applied to atmospheric turbulence compensation. High-fidelity wave-optics simulations h ...

  7. Adaptive Optics Compensation in Deep Atmospheric Turbulence

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF073002

    Adaptive optics (AO) compensation of deep atmospheric turbulence remains a significant obstacle to the deployment of laser beam projection and imaging systems for a many applications. Tactical high-energy laser (HEL) weapon systems will be particularly limited by inadequate AO schemes as they will often be required to operate in engagement scenarios encountering deep turbulence. AO systems that e ...

  8. Adjustable Attachment Device for Aircraft Blankets

    SBC: HILLIER DEVELOPMENT            Topic: N06016

    A simple clamping U bracket to secure itself under pressure on both sides of the aircraft's structural frame ribs. A clamp will be placed on every section where the bonded studs currently exist. A cavity on the bottom of each clamp will hold a stud or other tool to secure the blankets. The outer surface of the bracket will be made of rubber and the inner core will be made of 9255 spring steel, ...

  9. Advanced Characterization Techniques that Improve Durability of Fracture Critical DoD Components

    SBC: Vibrant Corporation            Topic: N08065

    The objective of this proposed effort is to develop and demonstrate tools and techniques for detecting fatigue and fractures in critical DoD components. Under the proposed effort, Vibrant will attempt to adapt Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) technology, to detect fatigue and fractures in DoD components. PCRT uses Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS) coupled with genetic sorting al ...

  10. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...
