  1. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterials

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A09AT002

    The technology, theory and fabrication of artificial materials and metamaterials have seen impressive progress in the last few years, and various applied fields have benefited of the great flexibility of electromagnetic response that metamaterials may provide at microwaves, infrared (IR) and/or optical frequencies. Negative-refractive and zero-permittivity metamaterials have indeed been proposed f ...

  2. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: AVAcore Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T015

    Exposure to light at critical phases of the circadian cycle is the main stimulus that entrains circadian rhythms.  Previous work has concluded that exposure of humans to bright light for an hour or more at the right phase of the circadian cycle produces significant phase shifts of circadian rhythms speeding recovery from jet-lag, and optimizing cognitive functionality and restorative sleep.  Our ...

  3. Development of Novel Polynitrogen-based High–performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    In this STTR program, CFDRC, in collaboration with the University of Idaho, proposes to develop some novel high-performance polynitrogen energetic materials for propellant applications. The proposed materials contain amine substituted tetrazole-based heterocyclic cations. In order to enhance the energy content and stability further, they are combined with energetic anions. These anions will have ...

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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters rely on technological 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 system-level opti ...

  5. Advanced data mining tool for feature detection in turbulent flow simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T017

    While DNS of complex flow phenomena is a routine practice nowadays, the analysis tools lack the sophistication to utilize the abundance of data generated, for they are devoid of physics-based data extraction and feature-detection protocols. The current effort proposes an automated and intelligent co-processing data-mining framework, in the form of an API, that detects and tracks flow features of s ...

  6. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Moreover, hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, excitation of vibrational level of molecules, nonequilibrium dissociation, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with proper domain decompositio ...

  7. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis (PFA) modeling method for advanced composite structures. The laminate is modeled as a collection of degrading lamina within the framework of lamination theory and executed using user defined subroutines through a commercial finite element software package. In the proposed approach, design ...

  8. Accelerated Development of High-Performance Mo-Si-B-X Alloys via an Approach of Integrating Thermodynamic Modeling with Experimental Study

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    The proposed study aims at accelerated development of Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) alloys with an optimized balance of properties, via an approach of integrating thermodynamic modeling with experimental study.   On the basis of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) database developed in Phase I, a thermodynamic database of the Mo-Si-B-O-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) system will be developed using the Calp ...

  9. Development of Amorphous Alloy Surface Coatings as Replacement for Chromate Technology

    SBC: ELECTRO CHEMICAL FINISHING            Topic: A07T010

    Our Phase I studies have produced a number of amorphous metallic films with true glass microstructures that are entirely free of residual nanocrystalline phases, which lead to premature devitrification. The proprietary MetaGlass™ -101 Ni-based alloy received the most attention, because analytical considerations, verified by experimental observations, proved that these films met, or exceeded, th ...

  10. NanoFET- Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster for Micro-Satellites and Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF07T036

    The Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster (NanoFET) is being developed as a high thrust-to-power, highly compact, variable specific impulse electric propulsion device especially for micro-satellite applications. NanoFET provides thrust by extracting and charging nanometer to micron-sized conducting particles (e.g., spheres) fed from a dry reservoir and accelerating them electrostatically. This te ...
