  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T003

    This effort proposes to design and demonstrate the concept of an innovative, Advanced BMDS Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture that will enhance the generation of a Single Integrated Picture of the Battlespace. This Architecture permits enhancement of sensor-to-sensor track correlation handover of objects while characterizing their lethality for later target designation purpos ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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

  10. 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 ...
