  1. A 3D NAVIER-STOKES FLOW ANALYSIS FOR A LARGE-ARRAY MULTIPROCESSOR

    SBC: Amtec Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) CODES HAVE BECOME IMPORTANT DESIGN AND ANALYSIS TOOLS FOR ENGINEERS, PARTICULARLY IN THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY. CFD CODES, HOWEVER, ARE SEVERELY LIMITED BY THE COMPUTING RESOURCES OF PRESENT-DAY SUPERCOMPUTERS. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT A THREE ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE INCREASE IN COMPUTER SPEED IS NECESSARY FOR PERFORMING PRACTICAL ENGINEERING VISCOUS-FLOW ANALYSES OF FULL AI ...

  2. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  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. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  5. AN ACTIVE OPTICAL SENSOR FOR ADVANCED MINE AND BARRIER SYSTEMS

    SBC: Sparta, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A PLAN FOR DEVELOPING A LOW-COST, SIMPLE ACTIVE OPTICAL DETONATION SENSOR FOR ADVANCED MINE AND BARRIER SYSTEMS. DUBBED THE ACTIVE RANGING, TRACKING AND SIGNATURE SENSOR (ARTS), THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF DETERMINING THE RANGE, VECTOR VELOCITY, AND GEOMETRIC PROFILE OF OBJECTS PASSING THROUGH ITS FIELD OF VIEW. IT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF RECENT ADVANCES IN OFF-THESHELF OPT ...

  6. AN INVESTIGATION OF V/STOL JET INTERACTIONS IN A CROSS FLOW

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ABILITY TO OPTIMIZE THE DESIGN OF V/STOL AIRCRAFT AND TO PREDICT THEIR PERFORMANCE REQUIRES A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLEX JET-INDUCED PHENOMENA ASSOCIATED WITH THESE AIRCRAFT. PRESENTLY, EXPERIMENTAL WORK IS THE MAIN AVENUE FOLLOWED TO GAIN AN UNDERSTANDING OF V/STOL FLOWS. NUMERICAL SIMULATION HAS MANY ADVANTAGES NOT SHARED BY EXPERIMENTAL TOOLS. IT, THEREFORE, CAN COMPLEMENT EXPERIMENT ...

  7. Anti-Fog Superhydrophobic Coating from Ultrastrong Nanocomposites

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: SB101010

    Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we will demonstrated scaled up version of the coatings lead ...

  8. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  9. Cognitive Patterns: An Architecture for Distributed Control of ChemBots

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082007

    Today"s robots require a great deal of control and supervision, and are unable to intelligently respond to unanticipated and novel situations. To address this problem, we developed a preliminary architecture for Cognitive Patterns which includes Cognitive Patterns Knowledge Generation (CPKG) and has the ability to connect to various knowledge-based models, multiple sensors, and to a human operator ...

  10. COMPACT ACCELERATOR DESIGN BASED ON A CYCLIC INDUCTION ACCELERATOR WITH BRANCHED MAGNETICS

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT DESIGNS FOR HIGH CURRENT (10-100KA) ACCELERATORS ARE BASED ON LINEAR OPERATING GRADIENTS OF AT BEST 1-2 MEV/METER. IN FERRI-(FERRO)MAGNETIC INDUCTION ACCELERATORS, THESE LOW GRADIENTS ARE IMPOSED BY THE PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL WHICH COMPRISES THE CORE. WITH AIR CORE RADIAL LINE INDUCTION LINACS, THE CONSTRAINTS IS DERIVED FROM THE GEOMETRY OF THE RADIAL LINES AND THE DIELECTRIC BREAKDOW ...
