  1. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA111002

    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...

  2. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: NGA11002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...

  3. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  4. Pump for Vapor-Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: Influent Corporation            Topic: SB112001

    Current cooling systems are limited by the heat carrying capacity of the fluid, which is in turn limited by the pumping technology to move the fluid. This proposal allows a much higher heat capacity in the fluid, due to allowing the fluid to go from a 5% to 95% quality within the cooling circuit, which is enabled by an innovative and unique pumping technology that will be developed in this proposa ...

  5. Hydrogen Based High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: SB112002

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore and refine the use of hydrogen based propellants for use in high velocity gun systems. This proposal will build on the ongoing and very novel research being conducted with direct combustion of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures at high initial pressures. While the research performed to date has demonstrated the performance potential inherent in this app ...

  6. Scroll Pump for Vapor Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SB112001

    The purpose of this topic is to develop a pump that can pump two-phase, liquid and vapor mixtures of common refrigerants and heat transfer fluids, without oil lubrication. The challenges of pumping in this regime are well known: Two-phase, liquid-vapor refrigerant mixtures are a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor, by definition meaning that there is zero net positive suction head. M ...

  7. Cell Culture Approaches to Generating Brown Adipose Tissue for Autologous Transplantation

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Obesity and its associated metabolic complications including diabetes are becoming increasingly prevalent in the general population as well as in military personnel. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a major site of energy expenditure through thermogenesis, which is mediated by the mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1). Studies in animals over the last 30 years as well as recent data in humans str ...

  8. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The ability to oxidize organic functional groups in a selective manner is of major importance in preparing compounds of interest to the Air Force and DoD. This is particularly critical in the preparation of high energy density compounds and fuels. Heterocyclic ring systems that contain both nitro and amino groups have been found to be an important class of compounds that are useful in ...

  9. Long-Endurance Runwayless Composite Aircraft (Orca) UAS

    SBC: NUCLEUS SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: AF112006

    ABSTRACT: A persistent presence above the battlefield provides for distinct advantages in areas of operation. Aerial platforms can suspend surveillance, SIGINT and C3 payloads aloft for the use of operators and observers. These resources have proven extremely effective when deployed in the field by personnel near the operating area. Such is the case when operating UAVs from forward positions. The ...

  10. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: IMPACT Technology Development            Topic: A11aT014

    Bioengineering offers an efficient and robust route for the production of enzymatic catalysts such as chloroperoxidase (CPO). The CPO from Caldariomyces fumago can catalyze non-specific halogenation of electrophilic organic molecules, epoxidation and hydroxylation of olefins and organic sulfides, and generation of free chlorine from chloride ion. The objectives are to: A. Develop a Caldari ...
