  6. Multi-Physics Analysis Tool for High-Energy Gas Lasers

    SBC: Material Flow Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA16T001

    Based on the results of our Phase I work, one significant barrier to optimizing battery performance lies in understanding the relationship between bulk solids and particle flow properties and the flow into the die. Our hypothesis: an increase in quality batteries production can be achieved if powder preparation process can be optimized and the die filling process controlled. We feel that control o ...

  10. M&S Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA12T007

    A goal of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is to use computer simulation of complex systems to make scientifically informed assessments for high-consequence decisions. Because end-to-end empirical data is difficult to obtain for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), computer simulation provides the best method for understanding BMDS capabilities against a wide range of threats. Numerica Co ...
