  2. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Polaris Sensor Technologies is proposing to use quantum dot technology that has been  recently developed which has the ability to tune the spectral response of a sensor in real-time.   In the Phase I we will study the feasibility of integrating such a focal plane to either fixed or adaptive polarization capability.  The adaptive polarization capability would be based on dynamically controllabl ...

  3. Advanced data mining tool for feature detection in turbulent flow simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T017

    While DNS of complex flow phenomena is a routine practice nowadays, the analysis tools lack the sophistication to utilize the abundance of data generated, for they are devoid of physics-based data extraction and feature-detection protocols. The current effort proposes an automated and intelligent co-processing data-mining framework, in the form of an API, that detects and tracks flow features of s ...

  5. 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. Biofuels Production From Nonedible Bio-oils

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: N09T034

    The challenge has been set to strengthen the military''s fuel supply lines with modular, easily sourced, renewable feedstocks. Microalgae, and other non-edible feedstocks, must be aggressively developed without delay. Microalgal fuel feedstock has been refined to produce biofuels with properties and performance comparable to their petroleum-derived counterparts. Biofuels derived from algae oil s ...

  8. Development of Multidisciplinary, Multi-Fidelity Analysis and Integration of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF08BT03

    Current aircraft design approaches incorporate the use of many high fidelity models for point solutions of individual disciplines. Sophisticated model integration techniques are not yet readily available and a significant amount of individual discipline stovepiping exists. Individual handoffs of point solutions between disciplines often results in repeated individual data interpretations.  These ...

  9. Development of Novel Polynitrogen-based High–performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    In this STTR program, CFDRC, in collaboration with the University of Idaho, proposes to develop some novel high-performance polynitrogen energetic materials for propellant applications. The proposed materials contain amine substituted tetrazole-based heterocyclic cations. In order to enhance the energy content and stability further, they are combined with energetic anions. These anions will have ...

  10. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterials

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A09AT002

    The technology, theory and fabrication of artificial materials and metamaterials have seen impressive progress in the last few years, and various applied fields have benefited of the great flexibility of electromagnetic response that metamaterials may provide at microwaves, infrared (IR) and/or optical frequencies. Negative-refractive and zero-permittivity metamaterials have indeed been proposed f ...
