  1. Multi-Zone Flow Through Membrane and Reagents for Onsite Detection of Domoic Acid

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 832

    There is a need for a simple, affordable method for measuring domoic acid in the field. This project will develop a rapid, onsite kit for domoic acid featuring a filter membrane that produces a readable color response without need for instrumentation. The filter membrane contains three or more zones with different assay characteristics in close proximity. These zones will indicate different co ...

  2. CMC Structures for Exhaust Nozzle Components Based on 3-D Woven Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF071105

    In Phase I of the proposed program we plan to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing bladetrack components using an approach that will result in substantial reductions in cost and cycle time compared with conventional 2-D lay-up methods. The approach involves use of a 3-D fiber preform with the shape of the final component, produced by an orthogonal weaving process developed at 3TEX, which ...

  3. Innovative Joining and Repair Methodologies Using Hybrid Textile Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N07T021

    Strength, durability and reliability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic properties, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature failure of adhesive bonded joints. The proposed work offers substantial enhancement ...

  4. Development of a Near-field Acoustical Holography System for Aircraft Jet Source Noise Measurements

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF071023

    The current and next generation military jet aircraft are exposing both ground maintenance personnel and the community to high levels of noise. The DoD is funding research to develop advanced modeling tools for community noise exposure and for noise reduction techniques. As these tools are being developed to address to the overall military jet noise problem, the lack of understanding of the actu ...

  5. Lightweight Aerostat System – Deployable Communications Network (LAS-DCN)


    Develop the Lightweight Aerostat System – Deployable Communications Network (LAS-DCN) to provide an inexpensive, long endurance relay capability for small ships such as the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) or USVs. It can also be airlifted by aircraft or helicopter to remote sites if required. LAS-DCN consists of a communications relay payload suspended from a new type of small specially designed te ...

  6. Computational Fluid Dynamics Co-processing for Unsteady Visualization


    This research aims first to evaluate current techniques to extract visual information for a large unsteady rotorcraft CFD simulation. Next, the same operations will be performed in parallel using the same CFD data, decomposed on a modern cluster computer. Then, Python-based scripting will be employed to automate these operations. Lastly, co-processing of the same simulation, linking the visualizat ...

  7. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    The activity of an OS kernel may be monitored dynamically in real time. As the kernel executes, the transition among the constituent components of the kernel will follow a predictable pattern representing the normal operation of the kernel. An attack on the operating system will induce a significant and immediately recognizable disturbance in this pattern of normal activity. The Attack Recognit ...

  8. A High Speed Towed Magnetic Array for In-Road Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices Employing Optimized Magnetic Map Differencing

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: A07169

    This proposal describes an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor array that can operate at a sampling rate of 750Hz, corresponding to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in distance at a moving speed of 60 mph. At low frequencies (below a few kHz), an EMI sensor is basically a magnetometer that responds to susceptibility targets (i.e., ferrous objects). The main difference is that, while a magnetometer us ...

  9. Wireless Power Transmission with Electromagnetic Inductive Coupling

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: SB072038

    This project addresses the problem of the wireless transfer of power between a source and nearby mobile platform such as a robotic vehicle. The primary objective of this research will be to design and evaluate, by analysis and computer modeling, an inductively-coupled system consisting of an optimally-designed configuration of transmitting coils to maximize the coupling efficiency though a target ...

  10. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR


    The US Air Force seeks innovative techniques and algorithms to investigate optimal platform routing that optimizes collection for fusion metric benefits, while also satisfying collection and de-confliction requirements. The primary focus in this regard is on the combination of both cooperative-system wide-body and multi-UAV (i.e., categorically inclusive UAVs) devices that provide positive and com ...
