  1. A Computational Framework for Multiscale Simulations of Weakly Ionized Plasmas

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF07T022

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a unified computational framework integrating adequate physical models for simulating complex non-equilibrium plasmas. Plasma dynamics is characterized by disparate spatial and temporal scales each described by appropriate physical models. The project aims to classify possible scenarios and develop general recipes for clustering phase space to dynami ...

  2. A Low-Cost and Scalable Dielectric Films

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: OSD06EP3

    Compact, high-energy-density capacitors will be the key enabling technology for future pulse-power weapon systems that are being pursued by the DoD. These capacitors convert steady electrical energy into short pulses that are needed to energize loads (required for directed energy weapons). There have been recent advances in chemical double layer capacitors, leading to major advances in energy stor ...

  5. A Novel Approach to Packaging High-Power and High-Temperature SiC Modules for Double-sided Cooling

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: OSD06EP7

    In response to OSD/AF SBIR Topic No. OSD06-EP7, we propose to develop a novel and simple approach to packaging high-temperature and high-power SiC modules. The approach, simple to implement and suitable for auto-processing, is proposed to address the problems of (i) the mechanical stress induced degradations such as peeling, cracking, voiding and fracturing due to mismatch of material coefficient ...

  7. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    The proposed project will rectify the current bottleneck in the simulation of 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. In the existing software, fields in the air are approximated by an artificial magnetic diffusion equation, which is both computationally expensive and nonphysical. The proposed solution avoids any nonphysical quantities and relies on exact conditions for the qu ...

  8. Active Resource Manager (ARM)

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: OSD05NC5

    The Active Resource Manager (ARM) will perform dynamic decision-making for self-managing networks. To accomplish this, ARM will access information from a wide range of network resources and cyber-defense sensors, and it will use this information to generate and maintain a situation awareness model. The situation model will consist of a structured, dynamic representation of significant situation p ...

  9. Active Vibration and Physics-Based Health Management

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF073135

    The proposed approach adds critical and innovative methods to existing vibration and electric current based CBM systems that allow more detailed evaluation of machinery health. The key methods, termed as TAP™ (Time Averaged Pulse) and BLIP™ (Bump Load Induced Pulse), involve artificial stimulation applied to the machinery system. MSI’s active method provides data in response to imposed lev ...

  10. Advanced Analog Micro-lens Technology

    SBC: GRASSMERE DYNAMICS            Topic: AF071003

    This proposal will demonstrate the feasibility of producing diffraction-limited anamorphic microlens arrays for Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors used on very large aperture astronomical telescopes with multiple off-axis laser guide stars. A high-quality lenslet arrays will be fabricated with gray scale mask lithography and reactive chemical etching. Four advanced gray scale photolithographic mask ...
