  1. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  2. ITACTIC- Infrared Target Acquisition, Classification, and Tracking via Image Compression

    SBC: Inview Technology Corporation            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Rice in concert with Inview Technologies will design, simulate, and evaluate compressive algorithms for object detection and classification in both static and dynamic imaging. The eventual goal is the application of the most suitable methods in novel short-wave and mid-wave infrared optical architectures for high-speed discovery and tracking by exploiting sparse signatures. We will compa ...

  3. High Resolution / Wide Bandwidth Arbitrary Waveform Generator for Telemetry Applications

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: AF14AT03

    ABSTRACT: In order to meet future needs for cost-effective high-capacity, secure telemetry systems, communication systems, smart weapons systems, UAVs, satellites, and other DoD platforms, further advances and innovations in digital-to-analog conversion must be achieved to support the migration to higher frequencies and operation in shared spectrum environments. This dictates a requirement for tr ...

  4. Shear Sensors for High Speed, High Temperature Flow Applications

    SBC: SILICON AUDIO, LLC            Topic: AF14AT08

    ABSTRACT: The principal thrust of the proposed research is the development and testing of a high-speed (MHz range) sensor for measuring the shear stress beneath a hypersonic boundary layer at elevated temperatures. The development of such a sensor will enable the Air-Force to develop more robust empirical models for predicting the wall shear stress in complex 3-D flows. The proposed sensor inno ...

  5. Non-Dispersive Reaction and Separation Processes for Pharmaceutical Synthesis

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: 300

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant A number of pharmaceutical reactions and wash processes involve interaction between immiscible phases within reactors or extraction equipment Multi phase synthesis processes have been traditionally been carried out through dispersion of one of the phases into the other in the form of droplets Such arrangement increases the surface area of interaction thereby ...

  9. Triple Re-uptake Inhibitor, SKL 10406, as a New Treatment for Alcohol Dependence

    SBC: Medication Discovery Texas, Inc            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Three medications are approved by the FDA as treatments for alcohol dependence disulfiram acamprosate and naltrexone but these are seldom prescribed due to poor efficacy or side effects Another topiramate is effective for reducing alcohol use but it causes a range of side effects that limit its tolerability Another clas of potentially effective treatment ...
