  1. Viscous Cartesian Flow Solver with AMR Capabilities for Automated Flow Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T008

    The goal of this project is to develop and leverage the novel Normal Ray Refinement (NRR) methodology investigated in Phase I, and to apply it to an efficient and robust prototype adaptive Cartesian solver for automated simulations of viscous flows. The NRR approach will provide a substantial reduction in the number of grid points in viscous boundary layers and will employ adaptive normal ray plac ...

  2. Ranging and Acuity Enhancement for Terahertz Imaging Spectrometers

    SBC: Tera-X, LLC            Topic: A06T020

    The company proposes to build antennas, circuits and modulation techniques for a unique, patent-pending approach to encoding a stream of pulses from a broadband coherent terahertz or submillimeter-wave spectrometer. This technique relies on broadband antennas with specific pulse-radiating capabilities. The essence of the approach is to drive two co-axial ultrawideband antennas with modulated pulse ...

  4. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    In the Phase I study, IntraMicron found that Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) increased effective thermal conductivity by 3~12 times, improved selectivity and product yield, and significantly reduced the Balance of Plant (BOP) compared with packed beds; Ceramatec prepared novel catalysts for highly selective jet fuel production and designed a FTS modular reactor with fast external heat tran ...

  5. Portable Friction Stir Welding Technology for Aluminum Fabrication

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N07T032

    In Phase I, technical and commercial feasibilty has been demonstrated for low force FSW processes that could be implemented onto a flexible and portable robotic system. The processes were implemented on a standard industrial robot, which could be integrated into a portable FSW system for fabrication of aluminum modules for ship superstructure. Two approaches were demonstrated, including a low forc ...

  6. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters rely on technological equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a system-level opti ...

  7. Advanced Interceptor Infra-Red Search and Track System (IRSTS) for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T002

    The Oceanit / John’s Hopkins, Applied Physics Laboratory (Oceanit / APL) team proposes a Foveal IRSTS (FIRST system) that can provide extremely accurate tracking information as well as providing discrimination and kill assessment metrics. Custom algorithms and processing methods will take advantage of a custom dual-format architecture to address and develop new optical processing methods and cap ...

  8. Energetic Polyazide Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    Orbital Technologies Corporation and Penn State University propose to examine and characterize novel energetic formulations in solid fuels to replace conventional, low-energy, binders such as HTPB. The proposed solid fuels will provide higher enthalpy, higher density, and improved rocket engine performance. In Phase I, we will calculate theoretical rocket performance of selected materials, chara ...

  9. Ionic Liquid Propellants

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: MDA08T001

    Future BMDS interceptor systems require innovative propellants that provide significantly increased performance and, simultaneously, improved safety, insensitivity, and economy. ORBITEC and partner University of Wisconsin-Madison propose to develop a family of ionic liquid propellants to meet these needs. Ionic liquids are inherently non-volatile, stable, and dense, and have a large liquidus ran ...

  10. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    The dynamics of turbulent combustion processes necessitate the measurement of multiple quantities simultaneously, but measuring multiple variables generally requires multiple laser-based diagnostics. Combining temperature and velocity measurements in a single diagnostic offers the opportunity for greatly increased understanding while minimizing experimental expense and complexity. ORBITEC and the ...
