  1. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  2. ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES FOR USE IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF ALL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: 1) HOW GOOD ARE THE NUMERICAL ANSWERS OBTAINED IN A COMPUTATION? AND 2) HOW CAN THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWERS BE OBTAINED FOR A FIXED AND LIMITED COMPUTATIONAL EFFORT, BUDGET, OR COMPUTING CAPABILITY? IN GENERAL TERMS THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE 1) TO DETERMINE RELIABLE A-POSTERIORI ESTIMATES OF ERROR ...

  3. ADAPTIVE NULLING BY ELECTRICAL SURFACE CONTROL OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA

    SBC: COMPUTER SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO FORMING A NULL IN THE SECONDARY PATTERN OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA IS DEVELOPED BY THIS PROJECT. AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE REFLECTIVE SURFACE BEING DEVELOPED ON A NASA SBIR IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE WORK. THIS PROJECT EXTENDS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SURFACE SO THAT IT IS USEFUL AS A NULL FORMER. THE RESULT IS CONSIDERABLY REDUCED COST OF NULL STEERING ANTENNAS. THE DE ...

  4. Additive Manufacturing of High-Index Photonic Circuits

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF141173

    "ABSTRACT: Modern electronic and opto-electronic devices are predicated on controlled deposition and patterning of functional material layers (e.g. semiconductors, conductors, and dielectrics). A handful of techniques, including vacuum epitaxy and chemical vapor deposition, in conjunction with lithographic micromachining methods, have long dominated the manufacture of these systems, particularly ...

  5. Additive manufacturing of high-index photonic circuits

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF141173

    ABSTRACT:Modern electronic and opto-electronic devices are predicated on controlled deposition and patterning of functional material layers (e.g. semiconductors, conductors, and dielectrics). Vacuum epitaxy and chemical vapor deposition, in conjunction with lithographic methods, have dominated the manufacture of these systems. While these techniques are well-established and routinely deliver relia ...

  6. Advanced Heat Exchanger (HEX) Scaling Methodologies for High-Performance Aircraft

    SBC: Spiritech Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: AF073050

    ABSTRACT: The current state-of-the-art for heat exchanger (HEX) analysis and design relies on analytical approaches which are difficult to scale and highly empirical, thus making the ability to optimize advanced heat transfer devices improbable without comprehensive characterization efforts. The design standard for predicting heat exchanger performance is a set of empirical data developed more th ...

  7. Advanced Recirculating Total Impingement Cooling of Turbine Airfoils

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF131174

    ABSTRACT: The future of gas turbine engines needed for propulsion and power in small unmanned military aircraft will hinge on the ability to enhance the efficiency for low fuel burn while maintaining world-class performance. Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc. (FTT) is developing the Advanced Recirculating Total Impingement Cooling (ARTIC) technology to enable a revolutionary leap in gas turbine e ...

  8. Advanced Solar Cell Metallization

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF171070

    We propose a resilient silver flake based metallization technology directly printable onto multijunction solar cells. The metallization will be loaded with carbon nanotubes to improve crack resilience. We will demonstrate that we can maintain connectivity (< 5% performance degradation) of a printed front-side metal layer across a gap up to 30 microns. In Phase I, we demonstrated metal line resisti ...

  9. ANALYSIS OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS TO SUPPORT BIOFEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS

    SBC: Transform Index Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE A SOFTWARE SYSTEM THAT MAKES CORRELATIONAL/FACTOR TYPE ANALYSES OF LARGE DATA BASES PRACTICAL ON MICROCOMPUTER-CLASS MACHINES, AND IS ABLE TO COMPUTE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS AT A SPEED THAT MAKES REAL-TIME FEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS POSSIBLE. THE SOFTWARE PROTOTYPE DEVELOPED WILL ACCESS A DATA BASE COMPOSED OF A W ...

  10. Assured Vision Geo-location with Precise Characterization of Errors

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: AF131153

    ABSTRACT: Phase I effort has developed the framework of Assured Vision-Aided Inertial Localization (AVAIL) and demonstrated its feasibility with simulated and experimental data. Phase II will extend AVAIL into a Geo-registration and Image-Aided Navigation Technology (GIANT). The ultimate goal of Phase II is to implement a real-time breadboard prototype of GIANT and demonstrate its operation on a ...
