  1. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...

  2. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...

  3. 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 crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  4. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

  5. CIM-MIAS (Cyber Information Management and Mission Impact Analysis System)

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF18CT002

    The DoD lacks an multi-level security (MLS) cyber information management (CIM) system capable of collecting, sharing and disseminating cyber information containing threats, system vulnerabilities and mission impacts and risks for systems operating at multiple security levels. A system that can securely collect and persist this information from various systems operating at various security levels i ...

  6. Computationally Efficient, Accurate and Uncertainty Characterized Chemical Kinetics for Hydrocarbon Fuels

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT004

    High-pressure turbulent combustion occurs in many combustion devices critical to the Air Force. Notwithstanding significant progress in computational modeling of these devices; several challenges have remained. A fundamental challenge is identification of reaction pathways and reactions in small molecule foundational chemical kinetics requiring improvements under these high-pressure turbulent cond ...

  7. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  8. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles operate at material strength performance limits and are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating that can result in softening, pitting and burn-through the material and potentially change the vehicle structural profile. These effects degrade aerodynamic performance. The team of CFDRC and UDRI proposed to develop, validate and deliver a comprehensiv ...

  10. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T03

    Modern processor design is trending increasingly toward multicore architectures. This is problematic for programmers because writing a correct parallel program is known to be difficult compared to writing the equivalent sequential program. Additionally, a wide body of sequential code has already been developed that cannot exploit the power offered by these new cores because it was written in a s ...
