  1. Characterizing JP-10 High Temperature Decomposition Chemistry using RMG- An Automatic Reaction Mechanism Generator

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N09T011

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and MIT are collaborating to extend their successful Phase I effort to fully develop and validate a comprehensive JP-10 combustion mechanism, using a novel automatic reaction mechanism generation tool (RMG) developed at MIT. JP-10 is a very attractive, but complex fuel whose combustion chemistry is poorly understood. In Phase I, the ARI/MIT team successfully developed ...

  2. Tunable High Pulsed Energy Blue Fiber Laser

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N09T006

    Leveraging on our extensive production experience in fiber optical components and fiber lasers, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new high pulse energy tunable blue laser with doped ZBLAN fiber. Based on enhanced blue upconversion by properly selected co-dopant materials, the proposed blue fiber laser will be able to generate high power. Furthermore, using beam combing technology, we will combine mul ...

  3. INTUITIVE NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR EFFECTIVE COLLISION-AVOIDANCE TACTICS (INSECT)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N08T005

    Vertical short takeoff and landing (VSTOL) operators face numerous challenges, particularly during takeoff, hover, and landing operations. Threats take the form of power lines, structures, and—in the case of combat—enemy fire. Often, these threats are obscured when visibility is compromised by dust, sand, or snow. Maintaining awareness of the surrounding environment becomes almost impossible. ...

  4. Optimized Real-time Complex Information Display (ORCID) Phase II Proposal

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N08T004

    Advances in modeling and simulation, networking, and computer graphics technology have made it possible to conduct large-scale, distributed live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training events, such as the Navy’s Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) exercises, on a regular basis. However, FST exercises are not without room for improvement. Instructors and exercise controllers often confront difficult ...

  5. ADAPT: Adaptive Device for Adaptive Performance Training

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N09T028

    Irregular warfare is increasingly the dominant form of military engagement. It is dynamic and unforgiving of errors, requiring warfighters to adapt fluidly to novel, complex, and ill-defined problems. The goal of this Phase II STTR is to implement and refine a training tool that builds adaptive expertise. The system teaches the learner to recognize and understand the fundamental principles underly ...

  6. Novel management of transducer heat and nonlinearity

    SBC: FERRO SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N08T020

    Ferro Solutions has demonstrated in Phase I that ferro fluids can be used to create a self-pumping cooling system that can extend the life and improve performance of highpower transducers or other electro-mechanical devices. In the Phase I demonstration a resistor submerged in a ferrofluid was powered so that its temperature increased to over 1200C. Upon introduction of the appropriate magnetic fi ...

  7. Design and Development of ZnO Nanowire based UV/IR Sensors for Threat Detection and Threat Warning Applications

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N09T004

    Next generation UV Nanotechnology based sensors are needed for a variety of Naval Systems that includes Threat detection, Hostile fire indication (HFI) and Threat Warning Applications. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, and develop high sensitivity ZnMgO/ZnO nanowire based detector arrays for next generation multicolor sensor applications. The key components of ...

  8. Implementation and performance evaluation of the Fast On-line pREdiCtion of Aircraft State Trajectories (FORECAST) System

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N09T005

    The main objective of the Phase II work is to enhance the FORECAST algorithms developed in Phase I, extend them to 3D in the case of multi-rate sensors and significant wind effects, develop effective tuning procedures, and evaluate the performance of the FORECAST system on test data. In order to achieve these objectives, we plan to carry out the following tasks: (i) Extend FORECAST algorithms to 3 ...

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

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N08T013

    Icing is among aviation’s most serious weather hazards because it renders aircraft unflyable before flight and severely reduces aircraft performance during flight. Existing approaches for mitigating ice accretion on leading edges, such as the inflatable boot and liquid deicer can significantly increase weight, power requirements and manufacturing complexity without providing sufficient reliabili ...

  10. High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: MC10 Inc.            Topic: N10BT048

    This Phase II effort will establish stretchable photovoltaic modules that achieve the key metrics of the program: modules with efficiencies > 10%, that sustain elastic deformations > 10% (with little or no loss in performance), and that produce output voltages > 25 V. In this Phase II effort will we demonstrate functional modules deployed on the airfoil of micro unmanned aerial vehicles (MAVs). To ...
