  1. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: Q-CHEM, INC.            Topic: A14AT013

    The variational two-electron reduced-density matrix (v2RDM) method provides an effective framework for computer modeling of the electronic structure of complex molecules and materials that exhibit strong correlation effects. In Phase I and Phase II of this STTR we have demonstrated that the GPU-accelerated implementation of the v2RDM-based complete active space self-consistent field (v2RDM-CASSCF) ...

  2. Pulse Voltammetry Tools for Accurate and Rapid Analysis of Batteries

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A152092

    Pulse voltammetry techniques, coupled with model-based analysis tools, provide a number of advantages for quantitative analysis of electrochemically active materials that govern the performance of batteries and fuel cells. In prior Phase I and II research, CFD Research developed and validated computational models in software that reads voltammogram data from laboratory instruments; predicts the re ...

  3. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  4. Thin Film Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals for Sensor Applications- Phase II

    SBC: Summit Information Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Deposition of highly conductive, continuous thin film metals has proven to be a significant challenge. There are several techniques that allow deposition of these metals, but their application is limited to planar surfaces and only offer complete line of sight deposition. During a recent Phase I STTR project, Summit Information Solutions, Inc. (Summit), in partnership with University of Alabama in ...

  5. Linking Output Activity to Outcomes/Impacts in Complex Contingency Environments

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: OSD08T003

    As the U.S. Government increases participation in post-conflict Stabilization and Reconstruction Operations (SARO) around the globe, the ability to understand the relationships between task completion and mission completion is critical. The US Government employs a metrics tool developed though the Monitoring Progress in Conflict Environments project. The objective of this Phase II STTR is to provi ...

  6. Coherent Beam Combining of Mid-IR Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A10aT007

    Many military applications require efficient optical sources producing several to hundred watts in continuous-wave (CW) or quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) operation at room temperature (RT) in the MWIR (3-5 micron) and LWIR (8-12 micron) regions. While QCLs have become the sources of choice in these spectral regions, the only realistic option to attain hundred-watt power level with good beam quality i ...

  7. Rugged Automated Training System

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11aT019

    Barron Associates, Inc.~proposes to develop the Rugged Automated Training (RAT) system, a cost-effective, rugged, automated environment to train and deploy small animals to detect landmines and other compounds of interest, and to evaluate their performance. The RAT system will train animals to recognize odorants using standard Pavlovian conditioning procedures in specialized, automated operant ch ...

  8. Incremental Learning for Robot Sensing and Control

    SBC: Net-Scale Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09AT030

    The purpose of this proposal is to build a working prototype of a highly-adaptive, vehicle-independent, compact, low-power, low-cost, autonomous ground robot navigation system that incorporates the results obtained in our Phase I effort and in our earlier DARPA LAGR (Learning Applied to Ground Robots) work. The system will be able to quickly and automatically adapt to changing environments in real ...

  9. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...
