  1. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) Modeling Tool for Optimum Gas Flow in Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N21BT022

    Users of additive manufacturing machines expect the highest quality when it comes to the mechanical properties of parts, the usability of the machines and associated processes, and overall machine design. The main contributor to the quality of the part is the involvement of process-related by-products originating from the melting process. To handle these by-products in additive manufacturing - in ...

  2. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) Modeling Tool for Optimum Gas Flow in Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N21BT022

    Most existing simulation tools are deficient in modeling gas flow effects, which have been proven to significantly affect the build quality of metal additive manufacturing (AM). In Phase I, the research team will extend our current Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) modeling toolkit by including a multiscale and multiphysics simulation modules to predict the effect of gas flow o ...

  3. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  4. Tunable wideband optical phase to amplitude conversion in a monolithically assembled network

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: N21BT019

    We propose a serially concatenated switchable asymmetric Mach Zehnder switching network on a silicon nitride photonic integrated circuit platform to provide flexible and switchable demodulation of signals from less than 1 GHz to greater than 45 GHz. The silicon nitride platform provides a low size weight and power solution while reducing the stabilization requirements and providing long path lengt ...

  5. Performance Measurements for Electrocoat Primer and Powder Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Corrosion of Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to cost $5.7 billion per year and result in 2.1 million non-available hours.  The first line of defense and single most important factor in controlling corrosion of aircraft is the protective coating system.  Chromate containing primers used for aerospace are the largest single source of hexavalent chromium in the US DoD, but elimination ...

  6. The ScreenVane Family of Inlet Distortion Generators for Ground Based Testing of Fans, Compressors and Engines

    SBC: Technology In Blacksburg Inc            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Due to requirements to minimize radar cross-sections, most modern turbine engines of military aircraft are coupled with offset diffusers that create significant fan face distortion. Conceptual blended-wing/body commercial aircraft also create distortion challenges. In order to fully understand the effects of complex inlet distortions on conventional fan and compressor designs, a range of inlet dis ...

  7. Novel Approaches to Electromagnetic Communication through Thin Collisional Plasmas

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    In this proposal, we study the behavior of electric monopole and magnetic dipole antennas in a collisional plasma such that the plasma thickness is much less than the EM wavelength. Since standard wave theory may not apply to this situation, current theor

  10. Accurate Space Object Prediction via Improved HASDM Input Parameter Calibration

    SBC: Kayhan Space Corp            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Atmospheric drag is the biggest source of error and the least predictable perturbing force acting on spacecraft and space debris objects in orbit around Earth. The U.S. Air Force uses the High accuracy satellite drag model (HASDM) to predict the atmospheric drag effects. Kayhan Space in collaboration with the University of Colorado Boulder and Space Environment Technologies seeks to improve the HA ...
