  1. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF05T010

    This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to chemistry, where quantum chemical methods must be extremely accurate to yield reliable rate constants. Yet u ...

  2. Advanced Finite Element Model Development for Characterization and Mitigation of Bone Conducted Sound Transmission in High Noise Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06T035

    Improved understanding of mechanisms controlling bone conduction (BC) sound transmission, especially with respect to acoustic excitation, is urgently needed in order to develop more effective hearing protection in extremely high noise fields. The Phase I research program made great progress toward this goal by yielding new insights into a mechanism believed to be a significant contributor to BC s ...

  3. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  4. Detection of Explosive Materials Using an Encapsulated Fluorescent Bioprobe

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A06T025

    The use of explosives over the last 100 years has left up to 16,000 military ranges contaminated with highly toxic compounds. A major challenge to the remediation of these ranges is identifying the location of persistent explosives residues. To meet this challenge, Agave BioSystems in collaboration with Universities Space Research Agency (USRA) is developing an encapsulated fluorescent bioprobe ...

  5. Control of Dislocations for Improved IR Sensors Using Epitaxial Necking

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A06T021

    It is well established that in order to produce large-format LWIR HgCdTe FPAs for third-generation IR systems, Si substrates must be used. In the DoD Militarily Critical Technologies List (December 2005), HgCdTe/Si is listed as a critical material and achieving an etch pit density (EPD) < 1x106 cm-2 is identified as a critical technology parameter. Thus it is imperative that a manufacturable techn ...

  6. Polymer-ceramic Nanocomposites for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    Agiltron is developing a new family of polymer-ceramic nanoparticle composite dielectric materials for high power capacitors such as required in directed energy pulsed systems. In Phase I we showed that embedding large dielectric constant fillers into nanodielctrics results in a composite with greatly improved breakdown strength and reduced dielectric loss compared to conventional materials. Our ...

  7. High Critical Current in Metal Organic Derived YBCO Films

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T009

    The Phase I STTR demonstrated major improvements in the deposition of high critical current YBCO films by a low-cost Metal Organic Deposition process on RABiTS substrates. A critical current of nearly 500 A/cm-width (77K, self-field) was achieved in a short length 2 m thick YBCO film, exceeding the Phase I goal of 450 A/cm-width. This performance is equivalent to a current of 200 A in an indus ...

  8. Material Surface Properties Modifications by Nonequilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processing

    SBC: APJET INC            Topic: AF05T028

    The Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jet (APPJr) technology invented at Los Alamos National Laboratory and exclusively licensed to APJeT, Inc., is a revolutionary platform technology enabling economic application of atmospheric pressure plasma technology in an array of applications. APPJr is a non-thermal, stable, uniform discharge having 50-1000 times greater power density than other atmospheric plasm ...

  9. Light Filament Sensor

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: A06T017

    The formation and use of optical filaments resulting from high-power, ultrashort pulses propagating within the atmosphere is currently an active area of research for military and commercial applications. Optical filaments can be used to ionize molecules and atoms and produced related spectral emissions. Importantly, the range at which the filament formation occurs within the atmosphere can be cont ...

  10. CIFTS:Communications and Information Flow Tracking System

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF06T027

    In organizations such as the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC), team members collaboratively process information about time sensitive targets for prosecution in time constrained situations. To assure the highest degree of performance, operators undergo periodic training. Training effectiveness is maximized by providing performance measurement and feedback to operators, so they can learn from t ...
