  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 ...

  3. A Portable, Vibro-Acoustic Based NDI System for Composite Structures

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: AF073117

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with our commercialization partner Boeing, propose to develop a portable, non-destructive inspection (NDI) system that can quickly and accurately determine the damage state of an aircraft composite structure using vibro-acoustic feature analysis. The high-frequency analysis method proposed can be applied in an automated manner using a modal hammer and vibro-a ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Adapting Information Extraction Technology to Computer-Mediated, Dynamic Text Data

    SBC: Janya Inc.            Topic: AF06050

    The goal of this project is to develop an information extraction (IE) application that can process military chat data. This application will be developed as a version of Janya's existing IE engine, Semantex, with a new chat-specific architecture. This architecture will allow automated monitoring of streaming real-time chat conversation and rapid generation of alerts when objects of interest are ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Advanced Analog Micro-lens Technology

    SBC: GRASSMERE DYNAMICS            Topic: AF071003

    To better quantify the benefits from the advanced microlens technology developed in the Phase I we plan to have microlenses installed in three astronomical telescopes. In Phase II we are planning to complete the fabrication of the remaining 4 microlenses needed for Gemini telescope and ,also fabricate microlenses for SOR telescopes in New Mexico (NGAS)and Hawaii. This will provide a direct evalua ...

  9. Advanced Combat Simulation for More Effective Anti-Terrorist Operations

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF07T023

    This proposal is for the development of an architecture for asymmetric and anti-terrorist simulations and the application of that architecture in the design and development of multiple user-friendly, PC-based, artificially intelligent asymmetric combat simulation systems. This effort will utilize a number of existing, mature computer wargames and will focus on enhancements to those game systems u ...

  10. Advanced Combustor Designs Utilizing Inlet Swirl for High Acceleration of Gravity (G) Combustion

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF071179

    The recent incorporation of high g combustor designs in gas turbine engines at Spytek Aerospace has presented the need for the further optimization of the compressor/combustor interface (i.e. diffuser). Legacy combustor designs remove the inherent swirl out of the gas stream at the compressor exit, introducing aerodynamic losses and structural weight penalties. High g combustors utilize circumfe ...
