  3. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  4. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  5. Query-Based Plug and Play Analysis and Simulation

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: SB172005

    The goal of this SBIR project is to developplug-and-play query-based platform that providesa general and scalable solution to CAD-CAE and CAE-CAEinteroperability problems.The approach is based on the followingobservations: (1) the shape and material information in any CAD model may be abstracted by a finite collection of queries -- formally defined andcomputable functions -- that eliminate the nee ...

  6. Low Cost Expendable Launch Technology

    SBC: FIREFLY SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: SB152008

    Conventional rockets all use a traditional bell nozzle. The nozzle represents lost weight from a payload point of view, but is necessary to direct thrust and ensure that the exhaust gas expands at the correct rate. However, this expansion velocity is dependent on the external air pressure, and for a rocket, that pressure is constantly changing. In other words, traditional bell nozzles are a compro ...

  8. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Individual Water Ready Device

    SBC: HYDROGY, LLC            Topic: SB151002

    The primary objective of this proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of a game changing desalination concept. Given the thermodynamic minimum energy required for seawater desalination as 0.70 Wh/L, the proposed desalination process has the potential to reach an energy efficiency as low as 1.2 Wh/L. The secondary objective is to demonstrate a human powered energy harvester that powers ...
