  1. A Comprehensive Modeling Tool for Cold Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05130

    CFDRC proposes to develop a comprehensive, high fidelity commercial quality simulation tool for modeling the Cold Hearth Melting (CHM) processing of Titanium alloys. The code will accurately predict the transient temperature distribution, flow patterns, skull shape, species evaporation, and particle fates in the hearth region for a given set of dynamic operating conditions. The foundation for this ...

  2. A Coupled Transport and Fate Model for Health and Environmental Effects

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05316

    A coupled transport, fate and human effects model is proposed that may be used to better understand and minimize the occupational exposure encountered during the maintenance of aircraft and other associated weapons systems while improving their operational efficiency. In Phase I a Computational Fluid Dynamics-based, micro-scale transport and dispersion model will be integrated with lung deposition ...

  3. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor for Battlefield Combustibles


    The objective of this program is to develop a wide field of view spectral imaging sensor to support theater surveillance and intelligence. The AHS operates in the Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) band and provides day/night spectral target cueing, geolocation and identification of hot battlefield threats. Currently deployed EO sensors can measure broadband MWIR signals, but are incapable of providing adva ...

  4. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  6. Advanced Commercially Available Inherently Radhard Primitive Cell Designs.

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Military Satellite Communication (MILSATCOM), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently radhard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes the use of double gated Flexfet technology for ...

  7. Advanced Multidisciplinary Tool for Dynamic Loads Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05318

    Modern aerospace vehicles operate at high angles of attack and perform aggressive maneuvers, which lead to flow separation, turbulence, high dynamic loads problems such as buffet and flutter. Accurate CFD model-based simulation of these problems requires careful attention to fluid-grid movement, fluid-structure interfacing and turbulence. CFDRC proposes to develop and validate a novel structural-b ...

  8. Advanced Nano Composite Coating for Gear Applications


    The Air Force desires technologies demonstrating value and commercial success in non-defense applications which will solve current Air Force problems. Gears are central functioning parts to most mechanical systems such as engine transmissions. Fuel consumption and maintenance costs are significantly increased due to efficiency losses resulting from friction and wear of gears. The development of ch ...

  9. Agent Based Computing Machine

    SBC: LEXXLE, INC.            Topic: AF05109

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop an attached processor called an "agent based computing" module (ABC Machine) that is optimized to convert information into knowledge and enable "cognitive computing" for higher understanding. The architecture of the ABC Machine is based upon a concept called "statistical dataflow computing" and it operates in local contexts over string operators. I ...

  10. AM for Missile Defense

    SBC: AURA Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA16013

    We propose to create a system that integrates simulation capabilities into design software that will allow MDA the ability to quickly vet new AM parts with 150x improvement in efficiency. This will allow more machine up time, less cost, and faster design iterations.
