  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Adaptive Compressed Sensing for Mission Prioritized Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Leskiw Associates            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) of complex systems is challenging in many respects. Vast amounts of data are typically generated, which need to be transmitted, stored, and analyzed. Traditionally, such testing has been"stove-piped,"with the data in one domain collected and analyzed independently of the others. Nowadays, however, T & E activities are being integrated. And dynamical a ...

  3. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. and Princeton University propose to develop a computational framework for accurately and efficiently modeling the full set of physics associated with aircraft operations. The critical attributes of the proposed framework are accuracy, computational efficiency, and inclusiveness. More accurate computational models will support higher fidelity analysis during the air ...

  4. Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Virtual Flight Test

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: ZONA proposes to develop a comprehensive virtual flight test software system by enhancing the capabilities of the ZONA's Stick-To-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation (STS-DFS)"previously developed under AFRL contractual support. The current STS-DFS combines flight dynamic model and a nonlinear aeroelastic solver constructed based on neural net-based aerodynamic reduced order model (RO ...

  5. Scale up of EO polymers and their utilization in novel nano-imprinted sub-wavelength waveguide-based Modulators and Arrays

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: We present a completely novel design for the polymer waveguide portion of the EO modulators, thereby resolving the fundamentally important low-loss coupling issue. This significantly simplified and elegant design will be fabricated by a nanoimprinting process, making use of electro-optic polymers that have been scaled-up to commercial levels. These polymers will be optimized for the t ...

  7. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Within the last decade, game theoretic approaches have emerged as viable tools to analyze distributed wireless resource allocation problems and design distributed transmission strategies. Conventional game theoretic designs for wireless resource allocation problems do not consider jamming issues in the context of network utility maximization. These conventional game theoretic designs ar ...

  8. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Multiscale Design Systems, LLC            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to establish a non-destructive, three-dimensional, image-based analysis protocol for inhomogeneous materials that inherently considers the heterogeneous nature of condensed matter. The process begins with a 3-D assessment of the internal material structure performed using a high-resolution micro-CT scanner. Next, reconstruction of a statistically optimal RUC will be per ...

  9. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The Phase I technical objective is twofold. First, the ZONA/MIT team will develop an Unsteady Aero-Structural Adjoint (UASA) methodology and implement it in a 2-D unsteady Euler solver. The objective of the effort is to investigate and resolve the technical issues involved in the development of the proposed UASA methodology. In this effort, we will first identify the pros and cons of a ...

  10. Nanosensor Switches for Detection of Toxins, Pathogens, and Small Molecules

    SBC: APTAMATRIX, INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: This phase I STTR project is a proof of concept study for developing near real-time, nanoparticle based sensors that detect the presence of specified toxins, pathogens, proteins, metabolites and small molecules. The specificity and sensitivity of this"nanosensor"is imparted by aptamer recognition that is engineered into a novel, patented technology we termed as an Alloswitch. These Allo ...
