  1. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors (SRMs) as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity. In Phase I, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging processes of composite and double base pr ...

  2. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    In our Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF) project, we will model the entire multi-sensor fusion process as a probabilistic model and reason about the different design and algorithmic decisions that can be made by system engineers. This fusion model will use standard fusion system representations and ideas from statistical relational learning field to create flexibl ...

  3. Uncertainty Characterization Using Copulas (UC)2

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Boston Fusion, together with our teammate Syracuse University, propose a program of research and development, Uncertainty Characterization Using Copulas (UC)2, that will result in a parametric framework based on the statistical theory of copulas for modeling uncertainties for the problem of object classification. (UC)2 will produce a mathematical framework, founded on rigorous theoretical analysis ...

  4. Hardening Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines for Industrial Use

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 02c

    Wind power plays an increasingly important role in satisfying the power needs of the U.S., and serves to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. With increased penetration, significant maintenance costs and reductions in power generation have underscored the need to predict the unsteady loading related to turbine configuration, layout and off-design wind conditions as well as importance of accounting ...

  5. Predictive High-Fidelity Modeling Capability for High-Brightness Photoinjectors

    SBC: Gnosys Systems Inc.            Topic: 06a

    High brightness and high average power Free Electron Lasers known as x-ray FELs, developed by DOE, are intently desired by the scientific community for their unique capabilities and for the opportunities they enable in the medical and biological sciences, such as imaging biological molecules or chemical reactions. Beam optics codes (particularly Particle-in-Cell codes) couple non-uniformity and su ...

  6. Method for Separation of Coal Conversion Products from Sorbents/Oxygen Carriers

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 20e

    This SBIR/STTR project targets the development of a technology for segregating fuel-based contaminants char and ash) from oxygen carrier material in the context of chemical looping combustion application. In chemical looping, the well-mixed solids that flow from the fuel reactor consisting of char, ash, and oxygen carrier particles cannot be completely separated into their constituents before they ...

  7. Novel Carbon Fiber Synthesis Process Based on Joule Heating

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 11c

    Carbon fibers possess high stiffness and tensile strength, are lightweight, and have high chemical and thermal resistance. These set of properties make them indispensable in multiple industries such as aerospace, civil engineering, and military. However, carbon fibers are relatively expensive compared to glass or plastic fibers, and carbon fiber composites are expensive then steel, which limits it ...

  8. Methodology for Attrition Evaluation of Oxygen Carriers in Chemical Looping Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 11d

    Existing methodologies for attrition evaluation of oxygen carriers in Chemical Looping Combustion systems do not adequately reflect the unique process conditions to which oxygen carriers are exposed, specifically high temperatures and cyclically reacting oxidizing and reducing atmospheres. This proposed Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR/STTR) project targets the development of novel equipme ...

  9. Ionomer Dispersion Impact on Advanced Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    The non-aqueous ionomer dispersion technology invented at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has demonstrated great potential to significantly improve the lifetime of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers. However, further validation and improvements are needed to make this technology commercially viable. The overall objective of this project is to further devel ...
