  1. Turbulent Combustion Interaction Models for LES Simulations of High Speed Flow

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD10T001

    At present, the predictive capability of simulation codes and models used in the conceptual planning and design of high-speed propulsion systems is limited by the ability to describe the complex flow fields inside the combustor, mixing models, detailed chemistry and turbulence-chemistry interactions, and subgrid-closure models. The objective of the proposed work is to develop and validate a high-f ...

  2. Nano-Sintered High Thermal Conductivity Composites

    SBC: Creative Electron Inc.            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project will develop carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) material systems incorporating metallic nanoparticles with low-temperature sintering properties to render structures with very high transverse thermal conductivity. CFRPs are already used in a myriad of applications requiring high strength-to-weight ratio, but their poor transverse thermal conductivity limits ...

  3. STOC: Secure, Tactical On-Demand Cloud

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: AF10BT03

    ABSTRACT: We present a novel architecture for on-demand clouds, which means creating a cloud computing environment when needed that opportunistically takes advantage of available processors. The processors are located on mobile computers at the tactical edge of a network and connect via wireless networks. Clusters of processors can be interconnected by trunks. Compute nodes may appear or disappea ...

  5. Photoactivatable Protean Glass/Ceramic Materials for Imbedded Miniature Devices

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: Photosensitive protean materials form essentially a new class of materials which are manufactured in one state but its select material properties can be physically and locally altered through patterning and lithography. In this proposed research, we will demonstrate the feasibility of creation of conductive copper lines imbued in the glass by using novel glasses with laser direct writin ...

  9. Saliency Annotation of Image and Video Data

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF10BT15

    ABSTRACT: With the current flood of surveillance data available to ISR analysts, human attention has become the most valuable resource to ISR systems. Although automated tracking and labeling algorithms are now capable of automatically identifying and roughly classifying targets, the current rate of false alarms and irrelevant annotations makes existing technology unsuitable for wide-area persist ...
