  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. 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 ...

  6. High Performance Cooled Seeker Window

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17005

    Infrared (IR) windows operating in the environment experienced by endo-atmospheric interceptors are limited in performance by the high heat fluxes, temperatures, and pressures characteristic of these environments. Window temperature can exceed 900 C from exposure to the high heat fluxes and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Existing materials are limited by poor mechanical and optica ...

  7. Advanced Development of Inception Technologies for Requirements Management (ADIT-RM)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: MDA11030

    Preliminary definition and analysis of Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) requirements in an isolated, manual, and loosely controlled change environment shows significant overlap in effort, resulting in a major increase to cost, schedule, mission classification, subsystem propagation, and trace of system impacts.To assist MDA with movement of BMDS mission objectives to mission requirements, M ...

  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 ...
