  1. Perching Micro Air Weapon

    SBC: AETHERMACHINES INC            Topic: AF083096

    The objective of Phase II R&D concerns micro air vehicles (MAVs). These MAVs are typically used for remote, surreptitious surveillance using video links. Under Phase I, AetherMachines Inc. has developed and test flown a MAV employing many new features which extend MAV capabilities and mission duration significantly. First, it has a very unique ‘insect like’ topology which enables great maneuv ...

  2. Common Gravity Dropped Small Weapon Electronic Safe Arm Fuze (ESAF)

    SBC: OMNITEK PARTNERS LLC            Topic: AF083089

    The objective of this project is to develop innovative means to effectively enable Safe/Arm (S/A) functionally within gravity dropped small weapons. Several concepts have been developed and their feasibility demonstrated during the Phase I of this project. Methods have also been developed for their optimal design. The developed concepts are suitable for weapons dropped from any altitude. Fully ele ...

  3. Weapons Effects FRMs for Reinforced Concrete Walls & Floor/Ceiling Slabs

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: AF083088

    The effort proposed in this Phase II SBIR will develop improved fast running blast response and progressive collapse models for reinforced concrete walls and slabs used in civil construction. These models will be developed and integrated within the MEVA (Modular Effectiveness Vulnerability Assessment) software. Currently, the blast response models in MEVA are limited to hardened construction and ...

  5. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Esensors, with SUNY at Buffalo and SUNY at Albany as a subcontractor, will simulate, fabricate, experimentally investigate, evaluate, and deliver aprototype of a new adaptive IR photodetector based on advanced quantum dot (QD) structures. The detector’s operating principle is based on a new concept of the photoelectron lifetime tunable via adjustable potential barriers in QD structures. The phot ...

  6. Exploiting Essential Elements of Information from Significant Activity Reports (SIGACTS) for Forensic Analysis

    SBC: Janya Inc.            Topic: AF083055

    The goal of this research is to provide automated information extraction services, in particular event and relationship extraction for forensic analysis. Specifically, we propose to develop and pursue an ontology-driven approach to information extraction. We will use a formal ontology capturing concepts of interest not only to facilitate the exploitation of extraction results in a larger forensi ...

  9. Modeling & Simulation for Optimization of Heavy-Fuel Micro Rotary Engines

    SBC: L.K. Industries, Inc.            Topic: OSD08UM6

    This program will conduct analytical studies and demonstrate the conversion of the UEL, rotary engine, to run on heavy fuel. Specifically, CFD modeling will be used to show how direct injection/stratified charge can be employed to convert this engine to heavy fuel. The direct injection will avoid predetonation, while the stratified charge or layering of the fuel air mixture will be investigated fo ...
