  1. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...

  2. Reactive In-flight Multisensor Security System (RIMSS)


    The need for in-flight event detection and monitoring systems is clear. To address this and other safety and security needs, IEM proposed the Reactive In-flight Multisensor Security System (RIMSS) an affordable system which would improve safety and security within an aircraft by: ?detecting abnormal events (including but not limited to unusual passenger/crew activities, losses of pressure, deviati ...

  3. High-Density Diffraction Imaging and Non-Imaging Grating Elements for EUV and X-ray Spectroscopy Fabricated by DUV Reduction Photolithography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: S404

    Diffraction gratings are powerful tools for the spectral analysis of electromagnetic radiation. Properties of gratings are determined by available fabrication means – which have not changed substantially in 50 years. Modern photolithography, now approaching nanometer resolution, may revolutionize the way many gratings are made and, through greater design flexibility, how gratings function. Over ...

  5. Material Characterization for Hypersonic Vehicles by the Fast Mutipole Boundary Element Method

    SBC: Avant Analysis Technology            Topic: A201

    Hypersonic aircraft are subjected to extreme conditions with respect to mechanical thermal and acoustic loads. Materials with complex microstructure, such as Functionally Graded (FGM) and honeycomb, are expected to play a key role in such vehicles. Detailed numerical stress and thermal analysis of such materials, with conventional Finite Element Methods (FEM), is extremely difficult. The Fast Mult ...

  7. Static Detection of Bugs in Embedded Software Using Lightweight Verification

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Validating software is a critical step in developing high confidence systems. Typical software development practices are not acceptable in systems where failure leads to loss of life or other high costs. New software development tools are needed to radically reduce defect rates and enable the high levels of confidence required for safety- and security-critical systems. Lightweight verification ...

  9. Compact Tunable High-Efficiency Entangled Photon Source

    SBC: MAGIQ TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: O107

    MagiQ proposes to develop a compact tunable high-efficiency low-power-consumption entangled photon source. The source, based on inter-Fabry-Perot-cavity Spontaneous Parametric Down Conversion (SPDC) of pump light in periodically polled non-linear waveguides (PPLN or PPKTP) is expected to provide high spectral density flux of entangled photon pairs. The output wavelength will be within the C-band ...

  10. Gadolinium EUV Multilayers for Solar Imaging Near 60 nm

    SBC: Reflective X-ray Optics, LLC            Topic: S304

    We propose to develop and commercialize a new class of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) multilayer coatings containing the rare-earth element gadolinium (Gd), designed as efficient narrow-band reflective mirror coatings operating near normal incidence in the 60-65 nm wavelength range. This long-wavelength region of the EUV includes the important solar emission lines O V near l=63.0 nm and Mg X near l=61 ...
