  1. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  2. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  3. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Modumetal, Inc.            Topic: DLA07001

    The purpose of this SBIR effort is to commercialize an innovative method for the production of Modumetal™ discrete parts. The Phase I effort has demonstrated: (1) The low-cost production of monolithic parts of various scales using a net-shape (additive) manufacturing process, (2) An new production process in which cost and production volume are decoupled, and (3) Significant improvement in pr ...

  4. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    DTRA and other DoD agencies are currently seeking earth penetrators with higher efficiency for reaching deeply buried targets. Current penetrator materials and designs suffer from high levels of frictional drag, unbalanced resistance due to lateral forces and localized melting of the warhead leading to shape change and further instability. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) has developed a method for en ...

  5. Non-Lubricated Diamond-Coated Bearings Reinforced by Carbon Fibers to Work in Lunar Dust

    SBC: DIAMOND MATERIALS INC            Topic: X401

    In Phase I, we made prototype sliding bearings from functionally-graded, diamond-coated carbon-fiber reinforced composite. In dry-sliding experiments, the friction of the diamond-coated composites against lunar dust simulant was low and the wear was so small that it could not be detected. In contrast, all other tested materials experienced rapid abrasive wear. These tests demonstrate that diamond- ...

  6. Gadolinium EUV Multilayers for Solar Imaging Near 60 nm

    SBC: Reflective X-ray Optics, LLC            Topic: S304

    We propose to develop and commercialize a new class of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) multilayer coatings containing the rare-earth element gadolinium (Gd), designed as efficient narrow-band reflective mirror coatings operating near normal incidence in the 60-65 nm wavelength range. This long-wavelength region of the EUV includes the important solar emission lines O V near l=63.0 nm and Mg X near l=61 ...

  7. Static Detection of Bugs in Embedded Software Using Lightweight Verification

    SBC: GRAMMATECH INC            Topic: X203

    Validating software is a critical step in developing high confidence systems. Typical software development practices are not acceptable in systems where failure leads to loss of life or other high costs. Software best practices for high confidence systems are often codified as coding rules. Adhering to these practices can increase software readability and predictability, thereby enhancing qual ...

  8. Brushless DC Motor and Resolver for Venusian Environment

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S202

    In response to the need for motors, actuators and sample acquisition system that can operate in the harsh Venusian environment for extended periods of time, on the order of several hours to days, Honeybee Robotics proposes development of high temperature scoop and joint; and continued development of an extreme temperature brushless DC motor and a resolver. All hardware will be demonstrated in sim ...

  9. Lightweight High Temperature Non-Eroding Throat Materials for Propulsion Systems

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: X603

    Radiation or passively cooled thrust chambers are used for a variety of chemical propulsion functions including apogee insertion, reaction control for launch vehicles, and primary propulsion for planetary spacecraft. The performance of these thrust chambers is limited by the operating temperature and thermal-chemical response of the available materials. The Phase I efforts focused on performing ...

  10. Vapor Compressor Driven Hybrid Two-Phase Loop

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1101

    The Phase I project successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the vapor compression hybrid two-phase loop (VCHTPL). The test results showed the high temperature-lift capability and robust operation under transient heat loads of the VCHTPL. At the end of Phase I, the VCHTPL technology reached the NASA's defined Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4 (Component/breadboard validation in a laboratory e ...
