  1. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. App for Speech Development for Students with ASD

    SBC: Handhold Adaptive, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are severe neurodevelopmental disabilities characterized by deficits in social and communication skills and the presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. For the 80 percent of individuals with ASDs who speak, prosody—the rhythm, stress, and intonation of speech—is among the most noticeable and chronic impairments. Prosodic speech deficits impede social int ...

  4. Compact, Regenerable, Low Power Adsorber for Spacesuit CO2, Humidity, and Trace Contaminant Control

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Current approaches planned for space suit atmosphere revitalization (AR) are neither compatible with each other nor regenerable in space, and have a high life cycle operating cost associated with them. The proposed PCI innovation in collaboration with University of Hartford involves synthesizing improved sorbents on high surface area supports tailored for CO2, water and trace contaminant removal. ...

  5. Hydrogen-Based Energy Conservation System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    NASA and many others often rely on delivery of cryogenic hydrogen to meet their facility needs. NASA's Stennis Space Center is one of the largest users of hydrogen, with the LH2 used as a fuel for cryogenic rocket engine testing. Other NASA centers including Kennedy Space Center, which utilizes hydrogen to support space shuttle launches, and many industrial locations also use significant am ...

  6. Plasma Simulation from Two-Fluid to MHD in Complex Geometry Using Local Relaxation

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: Multidimensional simulation of plasmas will be critical to the design of high voltage and high energy density devices over coming decades. Individual fluid simulation codes are presently limited to one or perhaps two of three plasma models: the higher densities and longer time scales of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), the lower densities and shorter time scales of extended MHD (XMHD), and ...

  7. Simulation Software for Strongly Coupled Plasmas

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF11BT23

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate a strongly-coupled non-equilibrium plasma simulation model. Strongly coupled plasmas occur in a wide range of physical situations impacting a wide range of research and development areas connected to Air Force technology. The simulation model proposed here is based on the particle-in-cell (PIC) methodology, which has recently been validated by the pro ...

  9. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT004

    A combined discrete cohesive interface fracture and continuum damage mechanics initiation and propagation toolkit for Abaqus will be developed for the residual strength prediction of adhesively bonded composite structures subjected to multi-axial loading. This tool will allow us, for the first time, to be able to simulate concurrently both the continuum and discrete damage progression at the bonde ...

  10. Total Fatigue Life Assessment of Complicated Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT006

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team members Northwestern University, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing Company, propose to develop an automatic software tool for 2D/3D fatigue crack growth prognosis of complicated structures under multi-axial loading. The XFAT toolkit will be developed by integrating a unified crack initiation and propagation model with an enhanced mesh inde ...
