  1. A Priori Error-Controlled Simulations of Electromagnetic Phenomena for HPC

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A11aT015

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves in unbounded regions. The accuracy and/or stability of the simulations may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of the outer boundaries via artificial boundary conditions. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this probl ...

  2. Advanced Flame Resistant Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N11AT014

    Shipboard structures can benefit from the relatively high performance-to-weight ratio, fatigue life, durability, processability and multi-functionality of polymer composites (versus metals). The fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and the initial economics of composites, however, cannot match those of metals. Efforts to replace metals with composites in shipboard structures have emphasized ...

  5. An Accurate 3D Real-Time Simulation Tool for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T003

    Existing thermal analysis tools for optical signature generation are employed in an off-line manner, and are inadequate for new closed-loop real-time system simulations being pursued by MDA. This STTR project aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative simulation tool for the automatic generation and subsequent computation of reduced thermal models for accurate, real-time analysis of complex 3D ...

  6. AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR DETERMINATION OF JP-8 SMOKE POINT AND LUMINOMETER NUMBER

    SBC: Engineering And Scientific Innovations Inc.            Topic: A10AT010

    Engineering & Scientific Innovations, Inc. (ESI) in cooperation with University of Cincinnati (UC) will develop an automated, standalone radiative heat and smoke point measurement device that provides improved accuracy and removes much of the subjectivity of the current method (ASTM D1322) by incorporating more modern and automated equipment. The proposed system utilizes a standard, laminar dif ...

  7. Beam Control for Optical Phased Array Transceivers

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF10BT23

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort is focused on the development of a novel HEL beam director system prototype composed of an array of small-size densely packed and locked in-phase (phased) fiber collimators, which can be scalable in respect to the number of sub-apertures in the array and the power delivered through a single fiber collimator. In the proposed system the basic operation functions of a ...

  8. Biomimetic Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    The proposed research effort is focused on developing a highly conducting, nanostructured membrane for use in high temperature direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC). Polymer nanofiber mats with high temperature stability and water retaining inorganic nanoparticles will be prepared through electrospinning process. The nanofiber mats will be compacted and the pores will be infiltrated using a hydrophobi ...

  9. CNT Based Microstrip Plasma Limiter

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA10T001

    Accurate Automation Corporation will develop a carbon nanotube based microstrip plasma limiter suitable for inclusion on RF printed circuit boards used on the front-end of an X-Band phased-array receiver. This device will capitalize on the ability to use carbon nanotubes to reduce the size and cost of an RF limiter while dramatically increasing the performance. Specific attention will be focused o ...

  10. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...
