  1. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  3. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Scramjet engines are expected to operate across wide Mach number ranges and typically incorporate isolators to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. Unfortunately, isolators introduce additional weight and drag, and form multiple shockwave/boundary layer interactions, which degrade the incoming flow. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active ...

  4. Active Transfer Learning for Intelligent Tutoring

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    We propose an intelligent assessment concept that will discover and reason about KSAs in multiple instruc-tional domains and settings. SoarTech will team with world-class researchers from the University of Califor-nia, Davis and the University of Memphis to research and develop TARGET: Transfer via Active Requests to Generalize Effective Training. TARGET will enhance SoarTechs assessment system DA ...

  6. E-Field Sensor for Submarine Detection

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N15AT004

    A major challenge in MAD for submarine detection is the separation of the background magnetic noise from the magnetic field anomalies caused by a submarine. Virtual EM Inc., in partnership with the University of Michigan (UM), proposes to develop a novel electric field sensor system for measurement of the background magnetic noise by correlating the magnetic field background noise with the changin ...

  7. Environmentally-compliant composite coating for corrosion and wear protection of structural metals

    SBC: ECOSIL TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel environmentally-compliant process to produce an advanced alloy coating(s) that imparts excellent corrosion and wear resistance to structural metals on military aircraft and weapon systems. The resulting composite coating and the coating process do not consist of any hazardous materials such as heavy metals chromium (C ...

  8. Grid-Spacing-Independent and Discretization-Order-Independent Simulation for Naval Single-Phase and Two-Phase Flow Applications

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT002

    Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving method and a new approach to LES turbulence modeling ...

  9. High Efficiency Computation of High Reynolds Number Flows

    SBC: Technosoft, Inc            Topic: N13AT009

    Although advancements in CFD technology and high performance computing have proven to be effective in assessing the hydrodynamic performance of naval vessels, the effort required to develop analysis models remains challenging and time-consuming. Decomposing and manipulating design geometry for mesh construction, while capturing flow characteristics and interactions among moving components, are man ...

  10. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate a software package based on coupled Fokker-Planck (FP) - Fermi Kinetic Transport (FKT) models and full-wave Maxwell electromagnetic (EM) solver to accurately predict semiconductor device behavior from dc up through the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. The FP model provides accurate non-equilibrium occupation functions for hot electrons with real ...
