  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  3. Secure Email Agent Using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a Trust Infrastructure

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: 9020377R

    Although protocols for securing email have been available for over twenty years, these protocols, by nature of their use of asymmetric cryptography, require users to have the public key or certificate of the correspondents. Grier Forensics will develop technology to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to distribute certificates and keys, making email secure, authenticated, and confidential, curbing t ...

  4. Design Combined Effects Explosives (CEX) Using Numerical Simulations

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DTRA122006

    Combustion Research and Flow Technology, Inc. (CRAFT Tech) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) have teamed up to provide DTRA with an innovative approach to develop new combined effects explosives (CEX) formulations. CEX represent a class of recently-developed aluminized explosives seeking to provide the performance of both (i) high-energy explosives and (ii) high-blast explo ...

  5. The development of a Single-Event upset immune, re-programmable and non-volatile field programmable gate array (r-NV-FPGA)

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03056

    Radiation tolerant Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA’s) have gained wide and rapid acceptance by military and aerospace equipment suppliers; however, there are presently a limited number of chip-sets available for production and they are limited to one time programming; hence if program changes are subsequently required a backup or chip replacement is required. The lack of FPGA alternatives ...

  6. Advanced Computational Techniques for Counterproliferation Problem

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DTRA03010

    The task of computationally simulating the dispersion and/or neutralization of toxic chemical/biological (CB) agents, released from weapons of mass destruction (WMD), puts a very high demand on the capability of current generation computational dynamics (CFD) codes. Current advanced computational tools for WMD threat simulation fail to address the necessary physics, do not incorporate emerging com ...

  7. Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to build an Ultra-High Vacuum compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer (WDS) that can be used on small spot Auger, XPS, TEM and FESEM analytical instruments for elemental analysis. The effort draws upon Parallax's experience in designing WDS systems for Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) and for XRF. This new type of x-ray spectrometer will eliminate th ...

  9. RV COMPOSITE MATERIAL/PAYLOAD NH&S INTERACTION INVESTIGATION

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED TO REDUCE WEIGHT IN REENTRY VEHICLE (RV) DESIGNS HAS BECOME A CRITICAL ISSUE WITHIN THE RV DESIGN COMMUNITY. AS SUCH, RV DESIGNERS ARE LOOKING TO THE USE OF HIGH STRENGTH TO WEIGHT RATIO MATERIALS SUCH AS THAT OFFERED BY GRAPHITE EPOXY AS A REPLACEMENT FOR THOSE STRUCTURAL MATERIALS CURRENTLY IN PLACE. THIS PHASE I PROGRAM SHALL INVESTIGATE THE IMPACT OF TYPICAL RV NUCLEAR HARDNESS REQUIR ...
