  1. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    ABSTRACT:The need for a natural language query capability for DoD regulations is identified. A technical solution based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and natural language query technology is presented. In Phase I, various techniques will be investigated, and one or more solutions will be developed and tested. In Phase II, the down-selected technologies will be refined and built- ...

  2. An MPM-based Multiscale Framework for Simulations of Mesoscale Heterogeneous PBXs

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: We will develop a multiscale molecular dynamics/material point method (MD/MPM) methodology for determining the response of PBXs to a wide range of loading conditions as a function of mesoscale structure with emphasis on accurate representation of interfacial physics. The initial material of choice will be HMX + DOA plasticized HTPB binder. Velocity-dependent grain-grain and viscoelastic ...

  3. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: Elimination of the cold chain is of vital importance for the ability to treat injured warfighters in the field and behind enemy lines. The application of an already FDA approved reagent for the stabilization of labile reagents will allow for minimal development time delaying the fielding of a new technology to fill this role. Collagen has been used extensively since the 1980s as an appro ...

  4. Data Management Tools for Metallic Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: 3DSIM LLC            Topic: AF151134

    ABSTRACT:Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies are bringing significant new capabilities to manufacturing. However, a number of technical challenges remain before these capabilities can be fully exploited. The design, modeling and data management tools developed for subtractive, formative and mold-based manufacturing are not well suited for additive processes that allow pointwise and layerwise ...

  5. Prognostic Scheduling

    SBC: COGNITECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF151167

    ABSTRACT: The research team will specify a data model, database, and preliminary architecture for the Prognostic Scheduling system. A proof-of-concept software demonstration will be developed, including support for database, data mining, data fusion, and prognostic scheduling software capabilities. The data mining capabilities will be deployed to a "Big Data" environment to improve its computation ...

  6. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000674

    The sodium battery using beta-alumina solid electrolyte is one of the most promising grid-scale electrical energy storage technologies that can balance the short-duration variability in renewable generation. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The safety i ...

  7. Demonstration of SOFC Operation on JP-8 Reformate Produced by a Cold Plasma Process

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Ceramatec Inc. and Synergy Technologies Corporation have teamed to demonstrate Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)operation on JP-8 reformate produced using a cold plasma process. SOFC stacks, installed in a test stand originally designed for use with a thermallyintegrated natural gas steam reformer, will be fueled instead with JP-8 reformate produced through a cold plasma process. The patented SynGen c ...

  9. Low-Cost Enamel Coatings on Stainless Steel Foils for Thin Film Photovoltaics

    SBC: Sommer Materials Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An inexpensive method to insulate the CIGS thin-film from the stainless steel substrate is needed to make monolithic production of lightweight CIGS-based photovoltaics feasible. This coating must allow good foil flexibility and exhibit high breakdownvoltages. The coating must also be compatible with the CIGS and metal substrate layers, both thermophysically and chemically. An inexpensive method ...

  10. Assimilating Physics-Based Model for High-Latitude Electrodynamics Specifications and Forecasts

    SBC: Space Environment Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to construct a physics-based, Kalman filter, data assimilation model of high-latitude electrodynamics. Our new model will provide accurate specifications and forecasts for convection electric fields, particle precipitation, conductances, Jouleheating rates, field-aligned and ionospheric currents, and ionospheric densities in the D, E, and F regions. High-resolution patterns of the ele ...
