  1. A Cryogenic Grinding System for the High Productivity Grinding of Advanced Materials

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DLA09001

    High performance metals, ceramics, and hard coatings are used in military applications to enhance the performance of key systems needed by the warfighter. One of the most prevalent operations to remove material, achieve the desired surface finish, or enhance part quality is bulk and finish grinding. For typical cutting speeds, conventional synthetic or oil-based coolants are sufficient to remove ...

  2. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF03T022

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible AI system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflict and the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  3. Advanced Development of a CWDM/TDM Sensor Network for Second Generation Fly-By-Light Systems

    SBC: DIGITAL OPTICS CORP.            Topic: AF03235

    The objectives of this proposed Phase II project are to develop the appropriate optics for an 8 wavelength CWDM system and demonstrate both the multiplexed data link and the integration of the link with an aircraft actuator. Fly-by-light (FBL) systems have been the subject of research for many years; however, there are still several hurdles to overcome before FBL systems can provide the next adva ...

  4. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: AF093014

    ABSTRACT: Current state-of-the-art, high voltage, pulsed power systems designed to drive high power microwave (HPM) sources utilize Marx generator designs. The high voltage insulation of these devices has been traditionally based on either high dielectric strength oil or sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The dielectric strength of the insulating medium determines the minimum size of the tank enclosure ...

  5. A Multi-Spectral Sensor for Missile Threat Warning

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF03219

    Solid State Scientific Corporation is pleased to propose a Phase II program to enhance the state of current missile threat warning systems. A new algorithm concept using up to four MWIR color bands will be explored for identifying and declaring threats approaching threats while rejecting stationary or receding targets as clutter. The band pass of the four narrow-band filters in the MWIR will be ...

  6. An Advanced Numerical Tool for Simulating and Optimizing Spray Cooling in Micro-Gravity

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF03175

    Under AFRL SBIR Contract F33615-03-M-2384 Phase I, CFDRC has developed and demonstrated the foundation of a comprehensive code for modeling spray cooling hardware for micro-gravity applications. The code includes effects that are critical in micro-gravity and cannot be thoroughly investigated using gravity dominated ground-based experiments. In Phase II, this code will be further developed, refin ...

  7. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

  8. ANTI-SIMULATION FOR PENETRATION AIDS

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXAMINE THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC BOTH FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE OFFENSE AND FROM THAT OF THE DEFENSE. THE OFFENSE POINT OF VIEW INCLUDES DETERMINING THE SIGNATURE FEATURES THAT THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC ATTEMPTS TO DISGUISE AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THESE FEATURES CAN BE MODIFIED BY PRACTICAL ALTERATIONS OF BOTH THE RV AND THE DECOY. THIS PORTION OF THE RESEARCH WILL A ...

  9. ASSIST: Predicting Flaw Initiation and Propagation in Aged Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ABSTRACT: When a solid rocket motor propellant grain contains one or more flaws (cracks, debonds, casting voids) or develops them as it ages, the risks of testing that motor is significantly increased. The responsible authority must decide between testing a motor that may destroy expensive testing infrastructure and relegating a motor for demilitarization that may not have failed from the flaw. ...

  10. Autonomic Software Protection System (ASPS)

    SBC: Avirtek, Inc.            Topic: OSD09IA4

    Advances in Internet services and mobile wireless services will lead to the development of cyberspace services that are pervasive and ubiquitous and touch all aspects of our life. However, along with these advances, we are experiencing grand challenges to secure and protect our cyberspace resources and services so they can effectively tolerate epidemic-style cyber-attacks, deliver applications tha ...
