  1. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  2. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  3. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  4. Novel THz-frequency spectrometers by integrating widely-tunable monochromatic THz sources and detectors, or arrays of emitters and detectors, with pho

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: CBD04104

    By continuing teaming up with one of the most reputable university teams in THz science and technology, ArkLight proposes to carry out the tasks set for a Phase-II program following our success in Phase I. We are aimed at the further development of novel spectrometers to analyze chemicals in the vapor phase based on accurate measurements of the emission and absorption spectra due to the molecular ...

  6. LOW-COST INDICATOR AND DOSIMETER FOR WARFARE GASES

    SBC: Coal Gas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT PRELIMINARY TESTS ON A NOVEL CHEMISTRY WHICH COULD RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF A LOW COST WAFER WHICH CHANGES COLOR UPON EXPOSURE TO WARFARE GASES (WG). SIMILAR WAFERS WHICH WE DEVELOPED FOR OTHER GASES ARE ABOUT 2" X 1" X 1/16" AND WEIGH ABOUT 2.3 GM. THESE CHROMOSENSE (TM) WAFERS CAN DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE, ETC. IN 10-30 SEC. AT CONCENTRATIONS OF THE ...

  7. Improved Trajectory Control for Penetration into Soils at 4000 ft/sec

    SBC: DE Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF04160

    We propose to develop an earth penetrator with improved shape for trajectory stability during high-speed penetration. Several promising penetrator shaping concepts have been identified in Phase I. Through further analysis, one or two of these will be selected for further development. Penetrator designs will be formulated and optimized, then tested through gun firings of scale-model penetrators int ...

  8. Innovative Filtering Techniques for Ground Target Tracking

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04204

    The project focus is the development of a ground target tracking algorithm to support the JSTARS radar operating in the GMTI mode. Multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) algorithms maintain alternative data associations to represent report-to-track association ambiguities. In Phase 1 we developed a prototype MHT algorithm not requiring the Bayes’ posterior distribution for the target state to be G ...

  9. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  10. BI-METALLIC SELF-FORGING FRAGMENT (SFF) WARHEAD FOR ENHANCED BEHIND-ARMOR EFFECTS

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE LETHALITY OF ANY DIRECTED-ENERGY WARHEAD IS MEASURED BY ITS ABILITY TO CAUSE IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO THE VULNERABLE COMPONENTS THAT EXIST BEHIND THE PROTECTIVE ARMOR. THIS DAMAGE IS INCURRED BY THE IMPACT OF THESE COMPONENTS BY EITHER THE PENETRATOR MATERIAL ITSELF OR BY TARGET SPALL MATERIAL GENERATED BY THE INTERACTION OF THE PENETRATOR AND PROTECTIVE ARMOR. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN LETHALIT ...
