  1. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Omm Scientific, Inc            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: This proposal sets out a plan to continue the method development for selective chemical oxidization of one amine of a polyamino, multi-heterocyclic class of energetic materials. The approach is based on screening one substrate (DAAzF) with many different oxidants under a variety of conditions including microwave heating to find those conditions where one amine group has been oxidized t ...

  2. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  3. A Trusted Computing Framework for Embedded Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT15

    ABSTRACT: The damage and loss caused by attacks and security breaches have drawn attentions to develop secure and reliable systems for embedded systems. Compared to their desktop counterparts, embedded devices are facing more security challenges, such as the more possible physical access to a target device and more constrained computing environment (e.g., limited RAM and CPU power). Together, the ...

  5. Highly-Scalable Computational-Based Engineering Algorithms for Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: RNET and The Ohio State University propose to use algorithmic modifications and multi-level parallelization techniques and tools to improve the scalability of the aero-line/aero-elastic coupled CFD/CSD codes relevant to the DoD/AF (e.g., CREATE/Kestrel). The optimizations will address inter-node and intra-node parallelization to better target emerging compute architectures (e.g., multi ...

  7. Conformal Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Antireflective Coatings

    SBC: ZT Solar, Inc            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this STTR Phase II project is to demonstrate that resonant infrared matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (RIR-MAPLE) is a commercially-viable technology for the deposition of hybrid organic/inorganic polymeric, gradient refractive index, anti-reflection (GRIN-ARTM) coatings on both rigid and flexible substrates. Description of Effort: Based on the feasibility rese ...

  8. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: There are a growing number of military (and civilian) applications for unmanned aircraft. To extend their mission capabilities, unmanned aircraft can incorporate solar panels onto their structure to generate electrical energy from the sun. Solar cell efficiency is inversely proportional to the cell's operating temperature. Therefore, thermal management of solar modules is import ...

  9. Time series prediction for satellite ballistic coefficients

    SBC: Omitron, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT36

    ABSTRACT: The leading errors in computing future positions of satellites in Low Earth Orbit are generally due to inaccuracies in the thermospheric density and the prediction thereof. The use of Dynamic Calibration Atmosphere has reduced these traditional sources of error and variations seen in ballistic coefficients can now be attributed to unmodeled satellite frontal area changes. When the orb ...

  10. Metamaterial-Based MEMS Compact Phase Shifters

    SBC: MEMTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF11BT28

    ABSTRACT: During the course of the Phase I project, the university partner Lehigh University invented a unique and highly efficient phase shifter concept based on metamaterial design concepts. This novel phase shifter unit cell allows switching between left-handed and right-handed transmission characteristics to create a phase shift with almost 70 degrees shift using only a single MEMS switch. ...
