  1. 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 ...

  4. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  5. High Energy Density Nanocomposite Based on Tailored Surface Chemistry

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: AF09BT05

    ABSTRACT: High energy density capacitors are required for practical implementation of GW-class pulse power systems on mobile platforms. In response to this need, TPL has established unique dielectric and capacitor capabilities. Revolutionary materials, designs and manufacturing processes have been developed for power sources that have potential for an order of magnitude reduction in mass and vo ...

  7. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: Defense Electronics Corporation            Topic: DTRA121002

    Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent current signatures associated with failure modes common to these process technologies. Furthermore, the ...

  8. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    To provide effective communication and coordination training to Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) crewmembers, we propose a prototype adaptive training communication environment using our T-BORG simulation and integration framework to incorporate new and pre-existing intelligent agents and synthetic teammates at various levels of fidelity. The problem addressed is that simultaneous monitoring of mu ...

  9. Cyber Security High Abstraction Contextual Visualization and Decision Support System

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA4

    3 Sigma Research investigates and develops an advanced innovative Tangible User Interface (TUI) that provides a novel operator interface for real-time operator manipulation of the cyber environment. This TUI provides a highly abstract physical embodiment of the complex cyber environment, that commanders and controllers can touch, visualize, and recognize patterns. This kind of manipulation of obj ...

  10. Listener Performance Modeling in Urban Environments

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF112024

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this Small Business Innovative Research project is to predict the ability of human listeners to detect and identify specific auditory targets within complex, real-world sound environments. Previous approaches, based on linear auditory models, have produced mixed results. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing observed in auditory physiology, significant ...
