  1. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  2. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  3. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  5. STOCHASTIC METHODS IN PROTECTIVE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE I EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO INTEGRATE PREVIOUS WORK AND DEVELOP THE NEEDED RESEARCH BASE TO ASSESS AND DEVELOP STOCHASTIC METHODS FOR PROTECTIVE DESIGN FOR NON-NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS EFFORT WILL BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RELIABILITY-BASED DESIGN (RBD) PROCEDURE. THERE ARE SEVERAL WELL DEVELOPED RBD PROCEDURES (LOAD AND RESISTANCE FACTORS, FIRST-ORDER SECOND-MOMENT, AND MONTE CA ...

  6. LOW-COST INDICATOR AND DOSIMETER FOR WARFARE GASES

    SBC: Coal Gas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT PRELIMINARY TESTS ON A NOVEL CHEMISTRY WHICH COULD RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF A LOW COST WAFER WHICH CHANGES COLOR UPON EXPOSURE TO WARFARE GASES (WG). SIMILAR WAFERS WHICH WE DEVELOPED FOR OTHER GASES ARE ABOUT 2" X 1" X 1/16" AND WEIGH ABOUT 2.3 GM. THESE CHROMOSENSE (TM) WAFERS CAN DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE, ETC. IN 10-30 SEC. AT CONCENTRATIONS OF THE ...

  7. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  9. Agent Based Computing Machine

    SBC: LEXXLE, INC.            Topic: AF05109

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop an attached processor called an "agent based computing" module (ABC Machine) that is optimized to convert information into knowledge and enable "cognitive computing" for higher understanding. The architecture of the ABC Machine is based upon a concept called "statistical dataflow computing" and it operates in local contexts over string operators. I ...
