  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Coherent Distributed Aperture Enabled Active Electronically Steered Array (CDA-AESA)

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Missile threats faced by our country are constantly increasing in lethality. The weapon used to counter such missiles is the kinetic interceptor. To work effectively, the reentry vehicle (RV) location must be precisely known. Confusing objects within the reentry complex make the key discrimination process very difficult. Coherent distributed aperture (CDA) radar represents an important advance in ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Design Requirements and Mission Planning for Hypersonic Munitions in Weather Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N11AT036

    CFDRC proposes the development of methodologies and tools for the integration of weather with multiple components of the hypersonic munitions life cycle process. The impact of weather on high speed projectiles is a complex multidisciplinary problem that can only be accurately estimated in operations with the presence of design specification and validation. Under previous contracts, CFDRC developed ...

  9. Deterministic fabrication of aligned carbon nanotube array and device architectures

    SBC: Absolute Nano, LLC            Topic: OSD10T004

    In this Phase I STTR project, we plan to demonstrate a new platform for engineering the diameter and packing density of vertically aligned CNT"forests", based on a scalable"blade casting"method of spatially directed evaporative self-assembly of metal catalyst nanoparticles. Using these self-assembled catalyst arrays, CNT forests will be grown by atmospheric pressure thermal CVD, taking advantage ...

  10. Dual Fuel Use of JP-8 and Hydrogen for Improved Compression Ignition Engine Performance

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A11aT023

    With the advent of more efficient hydrogen reforming systems, a practical hydrogen source has lead to investigations on the operating characteristics of diesel (JP-8) engines with a hydrogen/syngas additive. Several sources have reported that higher thermal efficiencies and lower pollution occur when hydrogen is added to the fuel stream. The objective of this proposal is to experimentally quanti ...
