  1. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    The objective of this effort is to apply a systems-biology-centered methodology for the identification of subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity, with the goal of developing a genetic profile to identify individuals predisposed to mefloquine neurotoxicity. The core hypothesis is that elucidating subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity requires the combination of cellular lev ...

  2. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore PbSnSe detector array on Si substrate. Two approaches are proposed. One is a zero-risk incremental advance that employs a new growth condition to reduce the dislocation density. Another approach is a novel fabrication technique with high-risk but it could enable revolutionary rather than evolutionary advances. IV-VI semiconductors such as Pb1-x ...

  4. Advanced Signal Processing to Enhance Target Detection & Discrimination In High Countermeasure Environment

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T002

    ABSTRACT: Missile defense radars use wideband waveforms along with coherent processing to extract detailed target features and perform high range /Doppler resolution functions. Reduced RCS targets embedded in high clutter (chaff, or chaff-like fuel debris, etc.) environments present significant challenges. Closely spaced objects and decoys accompanying targets of interest inherently increase the c ...

  5. An Automated Design Optimization Tool for Electromagnetic Control of Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF04T009

    This STTR Phase II project proposes to develop an automated design optimization tool for electromagnetic flow control based on the gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett scheme and the discrete adjoint optimization method. The adjoint method has already proved successful for dealing with both transonic aerodynamic shape and aero-structural optimization problems and has been extensively tested with the Euler equa ...

  6. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T003

    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  7. Compact Mobile Light Filament Sensor System

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A06T017

    Digital Fusion and The University of Alabama in Huntsville propose to develop a light filament based sensor system suitable for incorporation in an unmanned-aerial-system (UAS). This sensor system is intended to be useful, e.g., for sensing explosive residue or biotoxins at up to kilometer class distances. It has been demonstrated that white light filaments, which can propagate through the atmosph ...

  8. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An ena

  9. Continuous Dynamic Simulation of Nonlinear Aerodynamics/Nonlinear Structure Interaction (NANSI) for Morphing Vehicles

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF06T016

    ZONA Technology proposes in Phase I to develop a general methodology for the assembly of nonlinear reduced order models of the multiple contracting substructures that will likely provide the morphing of future vehicles. In addition it is proposed to extend the existing 2D Gridless-Boundary-Condition Cartesian-Grid (GBCC) to 3D. Finally, these novel developments will be integrated with the existi ...

  10. Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N06T021

    The ACR led team proposes an affordable manufacturing technique for complex-geometry composite components to be used as stiffened curvilinear structural panels and variable shaped fuel and ballast tanks for Off-board surface vehicles. Through the use of its Aquapour™ and Aquacore™ water-soluble tooling materials, ACR has previously demonstrated that different composite material systems based o ...
