  1. STTR Phase II: Termite-derived enzymatic tree bio-herbicides

    SBC: Ento Bio LLC            Topic: CT

    The broader impact and commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer and Research (STTR) project is a method to control invasive or otherwise unwanted trees and shrubs in an ecologically friendly manner with a biodegradable product. This will reduce the quantity of synthetic herbicides and/or synthetic herbicide adjuvants currently applied to control woody plants. This is especia ...

  2. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF17AT029

    The proliferation of commercial, visible and infrared wavelength laser systems is increasingly becoming an existential threat to our warfighters, which drives the need for further EO/IR sensor and eye protection development. Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmitta ...

  3. Target-In-The-Loop Sensing Suite for Long-Range Atmospheric Effects Characterization

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF17AT008

    This project offers a novel polychromatic target-in-the-loop atmospheric sensing (TILAS) concept for in situ characterization of the combined effects of atmospheric turbulence, refractivity, transmittance, and optical path difference (piston phase) over long-range, low elevation angle atmospheric paths. The proposed concept allows practical implementation of a modular compact TILAS atmospheric sen ...

  5. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to establish fundamental understanding of combustion-physical mechanisms leading to blowout, the critical evaluation of model limitations in predicting these blowout processes and the development of an improved combustion model to enable the prediction of lean blowout (LBO) in swirl-stabilized combustors. For this, high-resolution numerical simulati ...

  6. Experimentally Derived Scaling Laws from Spatiotemporally Resolved Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT15

    The objectives of this research effort are to experimentally derive the scaling laws up to 30 bar for key combustion species and temperature for reactions involving various hydrocarbon fuels in such a way so that the spatio-temporally resolved measurements would not be influenced by signal-degrading processes such as quenching, photolytic interference, Stark shift, and stimulated Raman. This build ...

  7. Multiscale Simulation Framework for Modeling of Structural Reactive Materials

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    We propose to develop a set of multiscale modeling tools for structural reactive materials (SRMs) that explicitly treat microscale, mesoscale and macroscale coupling of mechanical response, thermal properties and chemical reactions. At the macroscale, a combined material point method (MPM, solid)/Eulerian (ICE, fluid) methodology, MPM-ICE, will be employed to investigate the behavior of select int ...

  8. Robust Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Reversible Electroplating of Mirrors

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT20

    This proposal addresses the need for development of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) for use in electrolytes for reversibly electroplating films with specific optical, emissive and electrical properties on demand. Target applications for these electrolytes are devices using reversible electroplating for tuning/regenerating functional surfaces, such as mirrors or thermal emitters, deployed on ...

  9. High-Speed Measurements of Dynamic Flame Stabilization Processes in High-Pressure Combustion Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT13

    The Phase-II research is a natural extension and a significant advancement over the Phase-I research, which has successfully demonstrated high-speed, burst-mode, polarization-based, dual-plane, stereoscopic PIV measurements synchronized with OH-PLIF imaging of turbulent swirling combustion in a generic gas-turbine combustor with and without acoustic forcing. We propose to conduct high-speed, burst ...

  10. Securing the Internet of Things (IoT)

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: AF16AT10

    A market study of cybersecurity of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Phase I of this effort shows that the rapidly escalating weaponization of IoT devices will continue to be a problem for complex technical, economic, and political reasons. The IoT phenomenon has yielded a vulnerability with asymmetric cost-benefit in favor of the adversary, and this in turn has created the potential for strategic s ...
