  2. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection has become increasingly important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. This is particularly the case where table top femtosecond laser pulses (~50femtoseconds) with peak powers reaching the Terawatt  scale are commercially available in the visible and near infrared.  The military uses many laser systems (e.g., tr ...

  3. Aging and Surveillance Technology for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ASI proposes an innovative and numerically-efficient approach to the modeling of crack propagation in solid propellant rocket motors.  Our technology uses a coupled fluid-structure interaction model that is enhanced with an embedded grid capability.  Such an approach eliminates virtually all of the bottlenecks that occur in traditional approaches, through elimination of the re-gridding that must ...

  4. Geospatial Intelligence Analyst Knowledge Preservation Tools

    SBC: BEVILACQUA RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF083020

    This proposal describes a specific problem within the Intelligence community. Because of a lack of GEOINT tools for capturing storing and delivering expert knowledge from experienced analysts, new analysts have difficulty in quickly gaining the level of skill that those expert analysts possess.  Recent work in cognitive science has shown that engineers presented with knowledge from domain experts ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A Multidisciplinary Analysis Tool for Multi Systems Deployment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF083266

    CFDRC proposes to develop, demonstrate and validate a multi-fidelity multi-disciplinary analysis tool for systems deployment and multi-body relative motion involving aerospace vehicles. A rigid body motion (6 DOF) model for systems deployment will be developed as a stand-alone module to be coupled with a general fluid solver. An advanced overset/Chimera methodology will be implemented to allow for ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Tightly Coupled Aerothermoelastic Analysis Tool for Hypersonic Vehicle Structures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF083181

    A tightly coupled multi-physics framework is proposed for computational aerothermoelastic simulations of hypersonic aerospace vehicles. The multiphysics framework will be developed, validated and demonstrated by enabling variable degree of coupled interactions between non-linear flexible structures, aerodynamics, and heat transfer modules. The framework will be developed by leveraging CFDRC''''s C ...
