  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  10. Ion microtraps with in-situ cleaning and integrated passive and active optical pathways

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: A15AT009

    We will design, fabricate, and characterize an ion microtrap equipped with an integrated in-situ cleaning capability and with integrated optical access ports. The trap will be made of optical quality fused silica. The trap design and the fabrication process will allow for future developments, such as the addition of an integrated oven, UHV-maintaining subsystem, and rapid trap exchange with interc ...
