  1. Development of Next-Generation Composite Flywheel Design for Shock and Vibration Tolerant, High Density Rotating Energy Storage

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N13AT022

    The university and industrial team assembled by MiTi proposes to demonstrate the viability of using an advanced low cost out of autoclave composites manufacturing process for application to high speed composite flywheel energy storage systems. Besides conducting appropriate materials testing of the new process, testing of a high-speed titanium flywheel simulator system weighing over 200 lbs will b ...

  2. Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile Targets

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT05

    ABSTRACT: The focus of this research will be on developing a model and associated computational tool called HPEM-Expert that is consistent with the Directed RF Energy Assessment Model 2, (DREAM2), which describes and predicts the effects of a high-power electromagnetic (HPEM) signal on a mobile target, to improve on the existing DREAM tool. Our approach will be to develop a modeling and simulation ...

  3. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  4. Multi-Modal Sensor Fusion Utilizing Statistical Dependence and Compressive Sampling

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Our goal is to develop theoretical frameworks for efficient multisensor fusion of high dimensional data for target detection localization and tracking. We plan to develop novel algorithms based upon our previous research on copula theory to perform inference with multi-modal correlated sensor data. Copulas describes the dependence between random variables and allow one to optimally explo ...

  5. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  6. A Multiscale Simulation Framework to Model Energetic Materials Subjected to Shock Loading

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: The overall objective of this project is to develop scalable simulation components that effectively model the meso-scale physics of heterogeneous energetic materials subject to dynamic shock loading including matrix debonding, void collapse, and damage due to crystal to crystal interactions, and bridges the meso-scale to the macro-scale for system scale simulations of the transition to d ...

  7. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: A platform (PHA-fuse) for the stabilization of diagnostic and therapeutic reagents will be established based upon the polymer, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). Fusions of a target molecule to PHA synthase, the enzyme responsible for PHA synthesis, will be constructed and used to catalyze the synthesis of PHA granules. These PHA granules will help stabilize the fused target molecules and elimi ...

  9. Superconducting Parametric Amplifier

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: A14AT010

    HYPRES, in collaboration with University of California, Berkeley, proposes to transition superconducting parametric amplifier technology into a robust line of products. In Phase I, we designed a compact package for lumped-element Josephson parametric amplifiers (LJPA) fabricated by our collaborators at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. We have also established the feasibility of digitization of the amplifie ...

  10. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System Software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: N13AT014

    Software provides critical functionality to the DoD, as well as to the communications, banking, and logistics industries we rely on. Runtime monitoring is now routinely applied to quickly identify and limit attacks. However, monitors have difficulty distinguishing good behavior from bad because intended application behavior varies widely. This proposal describes SMAC (Scenario-based Modeling & Che ...
