  1. Power Source Materials & Subcomponents Manufacturing Improvements


    Advanced Membrane Systems Inc. (AMS) proposes a 6-month research effort to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a separator for BA-5590 primary batteries. It is proposed to modify the formulation and process condition of an existing separator developed by AMS for lithium ion cells and make it more porous and suitable for BA-5590 batteries and deliver separator samples to DoD labs and battery m ...

  2. Maximizing the utility of high-resolution ensemble meteorological forecasts for planning and responding to hazardous releases


    The two primary motivations for this work are: First, to provide forecasts of dispersion of a hazardous release and associated uncertainty (or “error bars”) based on the available ensemble MET data. Second, to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool for decision makers supporting both deterministic and ensemble forecast MET data as well as resulting dispersion model forecasts. To achieve ...

  3. An Ensemble Kalman Filtering Approach for Regional Ocean Data Assimilation


    Current and future operational needs of the Navy require the capability to combine very large and disparate datasets with dynamical ocean numerical models to produce, in real time, accurate analyses and forecasts together with respective uncertainty estimates for any littoral region of the globe. We propose to implement a highly scalable, portable and efficient ocean data assimilation system base ...

  4. High-Resolution Non-Intrusive-Stress-Measurement-System (NSMS) Sensor

    SBC: AEROGAGE CORP.            Topic: N06022

    The goal of this project is to develop a magnetic sensor that will accurately detect the time-of-arrival of turbine engine blades from outside the engine case and from standoff distances from the first stage fan via the inlet aperture, with the intent of achieving performance comparable to the Generation 4 NSMS optical probes. Phase 1 will focus on the key elements of the sensor in order to prove ...

  7. Delamination Resistant Coating System for Zinc Sulfide Domes and Windows, Utilizing a Compliant Layer.

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T014

    Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) is the most practical material for infrared transparent domes and windows operating at long wave infrared wavelength. Hard outer coatings have been applied to ZnS to protect it from rain and sand erosion. Theoretical analysis of multi-layer coatings suggests that a compliant layer between the hard outer coating and the ZnS surface may improve resistance to rain impact damage. In ...
