  1. Numerical Simulation of Rocket Exhaust Interaction with Lunar Soil

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    Rocket plume impingement can cause significant damage and contaminate co-landing spacecraft and surrounding habitat structures during lunar landing operations. CFDRC and the University of Florida will develop an innovative simulation system for predicting surface erosion and debris transport caused by lunar surface rocket plume impingement. This simulation system combines 1) a unified continuum-ra ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Snapback Primers for Genotyping and Mutation Scanning

    SBC: IDAHO TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Fast-Track STTR is to develop a simple, inexpensive, closed-tube PCR method for genotyping and sequence variant scanning. Instead of covalently-labeled probes, one of two primers includes a tail w ith a probe element. After asymmetric PCR, this tail anneals internally to the same strand, snapping back , to form a stem/loop structure. Bot ...

  5. Cancer dual-targeting of an infectivity-enhance CRAd

    SBC: VECTORLOGICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Studies of the molecular mechanisms underlying neoplastic transformation and progression have resulted in the understanding that cancer is a genetic disease, deriving from the accumulation of a series of acquired genet ic lesions. Despite advances in chemotherapy, radiation delivery, and surgical treatment regimens, survival from many advanced cancers remains ...

  6. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  7. Design Methodology for Attaching Morphing Components

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: ST061005

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) will continue to establish the understanding of materials and mechanical interaction necessary to develop modeling capabilities, interface design, and fabrication processes for fastening morphing skins. During Phase I, CRG and CU-Boulder were successful in constitutive model development and prediction of m ...

  8. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    Field-emission electron-emitting arrays hold promise for use in high current-density electron-beam devices as replacement for power consuming thermionic emitters. Large field-emitter arrays, however, are limited in total current due to non-uniformity and resulting instability problems. As a solution to these problems current-limiting devices, such as a field-effect transistor (FET) for each emitte ...

  9. Ballistic Imaging for Dense Spray Diagnostics in Harsh Chemically Reacting Environments

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF06T009

    The primary objective of this Phase-II research effort will be to build, deliver, and test a next-generation time-domain ballistic photon imaging (BPI) system based on ultrafast lasers for characterizing the two-phase combustion region within bi-propellant rocket engines. This will include integration into a rocket facility of choice for the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the Air For ...

  10. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...
