  1. Automation of Analysis Model Creation

    SBC: Technosoft, Inc            Topic: N06T018

    Although numerical analysis applications have proven to be effective and reasonably accurate, the effort required to develop the associated analysis models remains a challenging and time consuming task. While many meshing tools are currently available, decomposing and manipulating the design geometry and enhancing the topology for mesh construction are manual processes and place the heaviest dema ...

  2. Separation of Speech from Background

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Human ability to attend to a single voice in the presence of background interference is remarkable. If this could be imitated in practical technology it would be of great benefit for automatic speech recognition and other applications. Researchers at OhioState University have demonstrated computational methods for separating speech from interfering sounds that imitate human auditory processing, an ...

  3. Innovative Concepts for Non-Thermal Based Anti-Icing/De-Icing of Rotor Blade Leading Edges

    SBC: AKRON AIR MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N08T013

    This proposal aims at the development of a low-power deicing system using the newly developed magnetostrictive alloy as functional materials, namely the Ni-Mn-Ga alloy. Present studies have shown that the Ni-Mn-Ga smart alloy does not require excessive input power to operate while an impulsive strain of over 5% can be generated under a load of over 1 Mpa. When power is applied to the solenoid arou ...

  4. Detecting and Extracting Image Similarities, Differences and Target Patterns

    SBC: Automation, Integration of Information & Sy            Topic: N/A

    This proposal proposes the synergistic integration of several methods for mining images, detecting, correlating and evaluating the existence of artifacts due to either hidden information or changes or target patterns or noise. The first method is based onthe Pixels Flow Functions (PFF) able to detect changes in images by projecting the pixel values vertically, horizontally and diagonally. These pr ...

  5. High Strength, Transparent Alumina IR Windows with Nano-scale (< 100 nm) Sintered Microstructure

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AF07T009

    This STTR Phase I project is designed to develop a novel process for fabricating a nano-grained ceramic material for infrared windows. The proposed STTR builds upon our previous Phase I (Navy) SBIR experience to minimize risks and maximize the likelihood of success. This proposed work will utilize an innovative method to fabricate nanocrystalline alumina infrared window materials with significantl ...

  6. Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma optimization for efficient generation of UV radiation and active radicals

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma sources are being actively developed for a variety of industrial and military applications. Many of these applications employ ultraviolet (UV) radiation or active species (radicals) generated by the plasma. Theefficiency of plasma sources depends on the energy distribution of electrons which are mainly responsible for the production of radicals and excit ...

  7. Axial Pintle Controlled Constant Volume Combustion Bipropellant Pulsed Rocket Motor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Idealized analysis has shown that, for the same propellant supply pressure, higher performance can be obtained in a constant-volume combustion device than the traditional constant pressure rocket. CFDRC proposes an effort consisting of multiple levels ofanalysis, followed by design and testing of a rocket engine prototype that will substantiate this claim. Recent relevant experience in advanced ...

  8. Using Electrical Resistivity Techniques to Monitor the Long-Term Health of Sub-Surface Reactive Barriers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    72571B03-I Reactive subsurface barriers for groundwater remediation require systems to ensure that the barrier is continuous along its length (without any breaks or holes) and that it continues to remediate the groundwater passing through the barrier. Electrical resistivity measurements made within the barrier wall offer the potential to reliably address these needs in a low-cost manner. This ...

  9. Using Partitioning Tracer Technology to Characterize Contaminated Pipelines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    70607B02-II Improved technologies are needed to assist in the decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) of facilities used to support nuclear weapons production. In particular, a cost-effective approach is required to determine whether or not piping systems are contaminated and if so, to determine the level of contamination and its location in the pipe. This project will use both conservative a ...

  10. Rapidly Throttleable Oxygen Generation Using Microwave Plasma Decomposition of Rod Fed Perchlorates

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Elimination of high pressure and cryogenic propellant storage and feed systems for undersea vehicle fuel cells is of interest to the Navy. CFDRC proposes the development of a rechargeable oxygen generator based on microwave plasma decomposition ofsolid-state lithium perchlorate. The generator will employ the atmospheric microwave plasma torch technology recently demonstrated by the Plasma Science ...
