  1. Developing a Detailed Chemical Kinetic Model for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Materials Exposed to High Temperature, High Pressure, Oxidizing Environme

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N10AT005

    The objective of this proposed Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) effort is to develop an experimentally-validated, highly detailed chemical kinetic reference model of surface chemistry for C-SiC-SiO2 rubber composite materials exposed to high temperature, high pressure, oxidizing environments. This reference model will then be reduced into simplified reduced-order models that could be easi ...

  2. Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Teams of Autonomous Systems (VERITAS)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD09T004

    different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...

  3. Integration of PALACE and Touchdown Planning Methods for Landing CUAS at Unprepared Sites

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT039

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT have been developing tools and techniques that, together with existing 3D environment decision-making and navigation tools developed by AMRDEC in the PALACE program, are well-suited to the problem of autonomous vertical landing on unprepared landing sites. In this program, Aurora will team with MIT researchers and UC Santa Cruz (UCSC licenses PALACE technologies for ...

  4. Adaptive Turbine Engine Control for Stall Threat Identification and Avoidance

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT008

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...

  5. Demonstrated Environment/Harware Cooperation for Expanded Riverine Coverage

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N10AT024

    The Barron Associates/Virginia Tech team believes that intelligent use of ambient riverine environmental factors together with novel drifter design and low-energy articulation is the key to enabling large non-overlapping river coverage. The proposed phase I research program focuses on (1) identifying key river characteristics which may be leveraged by riverine drifters, (2) fabricating a novel riv ...

  6. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT011

    We propose to develop scaling relationships for reaction violence in the cook-off of energetic materials such as explosives or propellants. This will be accomplished by a coordinated effort consisting of data review and analysis. The anticipated results include key non-dimensional parameters that incorporate the thermo-physical, flow, thermodynamic, and kinetic properties of the material, the heat ...

  7. Photo Triggered Carbon Nanotube Field Emission Cathode for Free Electron Lasers

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N10AT023

    Busek Co. Inc (Busek) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to develop the design of a photon actuated, ultrafast carbon nanotube (CNT) field emission cathodes for high-power electron beam accelerator sources. The cathode will be based on massive arrays of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano-Fibers (VA-CNFs) that are individually controlled by a vertical ungated field effect transisto ...

  8. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: C-2 INNOVATIONS INC.            Topic: N10AT024

    The proposed Autonmous Reactive Ferrrying Drifter (ARF-D) provides wide measured swath, autonomously maintains a buffer distance from close-shore snags, and by utilizing river flow provides a very low power approach to obtaining cross-river surveying, providing greater coverage with minimal power penalty. By randomizing the cross-river transit paths multiple ARF-D units will naturally overcome the ...

  9. Development of Surface Reaction Mechanism for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Oxidation in Extreme Oxidizing Condition

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N10AT005

    The purpose of this STTR is to develop comprehensive detailed kinetics for oxidation of C-SiC-SiO2-rubber in extreme oxidizing environment. This material is used as a coating on the outer surface of Navy weapon systems. In order to predict the fate of this material under extreme conditions and mitigate the degradation of the coating, a comprehensive oxidation mechanism is required. In Phase I, CFD ...

  10. FreeSwim: Autonomous Behaviors for Undersea Sensors

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT038

    Future naval operations are expected to make extensive use of unmanned vehicles to support a range of operations, including intelligence gathering, mine warfare, force protection, and anti-submarine warfare. Current unmanned systems are typically controlled remotely by an operator who directly manipulates a control interface for the vehicle. The effectiveness of this approach is obviously limited ...
