  1. Query-Based Interoperability for Simulation of Composite Structures

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 9020673R

    We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE interoperability for assemblies. In Phase II, we propose to develop a series of use-case scenarios ...

  2. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  3. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  4. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  5. Integrated Micro-Inertial Sensors For GPS Denied Navigation Using Fast-Light Enhanced Ring Laser Gyroscopes and Accelerometers

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131065

    ABSTRACT: For navigation of space platforms under GPS denied conditions, there is a need for micro-inertial sensors, with better accuracy and smaller volume and weight than the state of the art. We at Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) have been developing a superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly six orders of magnitude. Alternativel ...

  6. Non-Fluid Refrigeration Technology for Cooling Infrared Focal Planes and Other System Components below 50 K in Cryo-Vacuum Test Chambers

    SBC: FG SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF131182

    ABSTRACT: FG Systems proposes to develop a Solid State Magnetocaloric Refrigerator (SSMR) which will provide a means of cooling infrared focal planes and other system components to their operating temperatures without significant consumption of cryogens. The SSMR will be a low vibration level system suitable for space-borne and air-borne applications, as well as have a very high efficiency comp ...

  7. Extracting Valid Inferences from Data, Evidence, and Novel Tests (EVIDENT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT01

    ABSTRACT: A recent study by the National Research Council found that sophisticated statistical techniques are finding their way into DoD operational test design, but that current DoD practices are still substantially behind the state of the art. The study concluded this has resulted in inefficient test designs, wasted resources, and less effective acquisition decision making. US Air Force test an ...

  8. Biologically Inspired Plasmonic Integrated Multi-Color Sensors (BI-PIMS)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: In this program, Agiltron, Inc. and Harvard University will develop a biologically-inspired integrated sensor that can detect the UV, visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and mid-wave infrared (MWIR) bands. This sensor will be integrated with plasmonic filters to provide additional information from the radiation field that may not be available to common image sensors. The advanced integr ...

  9. Field Assessment of Materials for Use in Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: IllinoisRocstar LLC and Purdue University propose a framework that enables field assessment of particle size and shape for use in ultra-high performance concrete. We will implement portable scanning approaches for particle size measurement and combine this with high performance computer modeling to optimize altering particle size proportions. Critically, the framework will be implemente ...

  10. Game-Theoretic Space Situational Analysis Toolbox (GaTSSAT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: By considering multiple space-based teams of cooperative and/or uncooperative players with varying orbital geometries and defense/offense capabilities such as sporadic observations, jamming confrontations, and sparse communications, the main challenges in derivation of effective decisions for autonomous space systems are: (a) development of effective game models and game training algori ...
