  1. 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 ...

  2. DIPAIN-Based Handheld Assay for the Detection of T-2 Toxin in Water Using a Handheld Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10AT021

    A rapid assay for the detection of T2 trichothecene mycotoxin in water is proposed that will use ANP Technology, Inc.'s established handheld reader and rapid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor test ticket format. Dipain-II and other candidate Dipain derivatives will be immobilized on cellulose and other solid supports mounted as discs in wells on the existing test ticket, similar to the AChE i ...

  3. Ultrafast Hybrid Active Materials and Devices for Compact RF Photonics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT25

    Optical components for RF-photonic applications such as communication satellites, avionics, optical networks, sensors and phase array radar will require high speed, high capacity and low power. Due to the nature of crystalline electro-optic materials (LiNbO3, GaAs, InP, etc.) today’s commercial electro-optical devices do not perform well above 40 GHz. This limitation can be circumvented by utili ...

  4. Silicon-Based Nanomembrane Photonic and Electronic Components

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF08BT08

    This proposal deals with advanced design architectures for realizing silicon-based reconfigurable and stackable photonic analog signal processing engines supported on flexible or flat substrates using crystalline Si-based nanomembrane technology. Silicon nanomembranes are single crystals of Si that have been released from SOI substrates and redeposited on foreign flexible or flat substrates enabli ...

  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. Algorithm Development for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF09BT18

    For the Phase I effort, a team comprised of experts in the areas of alternative high performance computing architectures such as the GPU, IBM Cell BE and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (Research Institution), and finite element analysis and continuum mechanics (Global Engineering Research and Technologies) has been formed to design and develop a framework and a library of algorithms optimized for ...

  7. Observing biological and chemical interactions at nanoscale resolution with scanning transmission electron microscopy

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Co.            Topic: A08T029

    Solid-state and biological materials interact with fluids in many important ways. Solid-state nanoparticles are formed via solution based synthesis and biological cells exist live only in a fluid environment. In Phase I, we demonstrated a method to image

  8. Coupled Free-Piston Stirling Engine (FPSE), Stirling Cooler, and Absorption Chiller (FROST) for Shelter Air Conditioning

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09T002

    The cost of logistical fuels, including transportation and distribution, is significant. According to the Defense Energy Support Center, nearly $3B was spent on fuel in 2007. The increasing use of electronics is driving a growing need for shelter air conditioning, which in turn is another demand for fuel. Existing Environmental Control Units (ECU) coupled to electrical generators can provide the n ...

  9. CATALYTIC MEMBRANE REACTOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HYDROGEN FROM BUTANOL

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: A10AT009

    A compact and efficient fuel processor that provides clean hydrogen from a high energy density liquid fuel such as butanol will allow fuel cell technology to be realized in military and commercial markets for portable applications. InnovaTek, and its proposal partner Indiana - Purdue University, will build on their combined experience in catalytic reforming to develop catalysts that are optimize ...

  10. Rotor development for a miniature tilt-body UAV having long endurance and VTOL capability

    SBC: Aerovel Corporation            Topic: N09BT039

    We envision a class of miniature robotic aircraft dubbed Flexrotors which offer range, endurance, and economy at levels associated with wing-borne flight, together with capability for hover and VTOL. Such aircraft would use low-disc-loading rotors which must operate efficiently from zero advance ratio in thrust-borne flight, with rotor axis vertical, to high advance ratio in wing-borne cruise, wi ...
