  1. Meso-scale Framework for Simulating the Response of Structural Reactive Materials to Shock Loading

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    Structural reactive materials (SRMs) or multifunctional energetic materials offer the ability to combine the high energy release rates of traditional high explosives with structural strength.When successfully formulated they can lead to light-weight, high-performance and hitherto inaccessible designs of munitions. The key feature of structural energetic materials (SEMs), perhaps even more so than ...

  3. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    To understand how insects and crustaceans sense and process light fields, researchers need a projection system that provides realistic wide field of view (FOV), high-speed imagery from UV to red (320-650nm) that includes polarization control. Insects and crustaceans have vastly different visual acuity and wavelength response from humans. In addition, some can sense polarization. Therefore, commerc ...

  4. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: AF17AT022

    As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...

  5. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles operate at material strength performance limits and are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating that can result in softening, pitting and burn-through the material and potentially change the vehicle structural profile. These effects degrade aerodynamic performance. The team of CFDRC and UDRI proposed to develop, validate and deliver a comprehensiv ...

  7. Brain Targeting Nanoparticle for Drug Delivery in Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: DHA18A001

    There is an urgent need to bypass or cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) to deliver drugs for TBI treatment. This project aims to develop targted intranasally delivered, magnetically propulsed, and targted nanoparticles for traumatic brain injury (TBI). In Phase I, we will demonstrate the design, fabrication, and in vitro characterization of proposed drug laden magnetic nanoparticles as well as co ...

  8. Mid-IR Meta-Lenses

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: AF18AT005

    In Phase I of this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) will demonstrated high-efficiency mid-IR metasurface flat optics. We will use Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) to grow Lead Telluride (PbTe) on Barium Fluoride (BaF2) substrates to construct flat meta-lenses equivalent of cylindrical and aspheric lenses for mid-IR image ...

  9. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    This is a prototype system that will take raw observation data, detect and characterize maneuvers, and use reinforcement learning to understand and react to evasive RSO behaviors in near real time. This will provide a framework to evaluate autonomous behavior strategies, such a safety, effectiveness, and robustness to manipulation. This work will enable surveillance operators to distinguish betwee ...

  10. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...
