  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters are increasingly relying on technology equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a ...

  5. Viscous Cartesian Flow Solver with AMR Capabilities for Automated Flow Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T008

    The computational grid generation process remains a troublesome bottleneck in development of aerodynamic databases for complex geometries and multi-body configurations. The ability of Cartesian-grid based methods to perform automatic mesh generation and dynamic mesh adaptation allows for substantially reduced manpower, time and cost. The advantages of octree-based Cartesian-mesh methods have been ...

  6. Covert Micro-Reflector Tag System

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc., proposes to develop and demonstrate a full scale, operationally relevant prototype covert marking system based on dust-sized micro-reflector tags. Composed of a material with unique reflectance signatures not visible tothe naked eye, these tags will be coupled with a highly portable imaging sensor capable of uniquely distinguishing tags from the background in the ...

  7. Optimization of Polyurea Coatings for Blast and Impact Resistance

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N08T001

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) proposes to fully develop polyurea coatings for blast and impact resistance. Polyurea coatings show promise for increasing the blast and impact resistance of buildings and vehicles, but further development is necessary to ensure the success of these materials. Currently, there is no method for assessing the suitability of a coating for blast and impact resist ...

  8. Optimizing Human Resource Management Models

    SBC: Creative Action LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose the study of a new heuristic for the general mixed integer problem called the Neighborhood Covering Heuristic (NCH). We describe the heuristic in its simplest, worst-case form. We then describe three enhancements to the heuristic which,separately and in combination, should yield a practical method for finding solutions. We believe this approach has the potential to be significantly fast ...

  9. Silicon-Based Visible/Near-Infrared Affordable Missile Warning


    U.S. military aircraft are still vulnerable to man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) due to MANPADS effectiveness, low cost, availability, small size, and ease of use and due to the lack of operationally effective Electro-optical/ Infrared (EO/IR)detection systems that are capable of supporting advanced laser countermeasures (CM). An effective and affordable solution is critical. This resea ...

  10. Superconducting Power Dense Inductors and reactors for Power Filtering Applications

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Currently, power electronic systems, for the Navy results in systems that are 10 times too large and heavy. The passive components such as inductors, reactors, and transformers take up a considerable percentage of the weight and volume. Superconductingpassive components can dramatically reduce the size and weight of these components. This project investigates the potential of using magnesium di ...
