Hypersonic Experimental Aerothermoelastic Test (HEAT)SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation Topic: AF16AT24
The Air Force is interested in developing technology that would enable long duration hypersonic flight with reusable aircraft. Hypersonic flow presents many design challenges that can be encapsulated into an aerothermoelastic problem, i.e., a complex dyn...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex SystemsSBC: HYPERCOMP INC Topic: AF14AT07
In this program, HyPerComp and University of Michigan have teamedtogether to develop a high-order grid generator for Euler and viscousmeshes. The grid generator is based on HyPerComps successful generalpurpose CAD2Mesh software and is being integrated with HyPerCompsHDphysics and U. Michigans XFlow DG high-order solvers. High-order gridgeneration methods are being implemented to accurately capture ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Miniature Mass Spectrometer for Peptide Sequencing and Mobile Coupling with Separation TechniquesSBC: BAYSPEC, INC. Topic: A16AT012
Using advanced ion optics that was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), BaySpec will develop a prototype of portable mass spectrometer (less than 40 lb. and 300W) with continuous atmospheric pressure inlet that is fully capable of uninterrupted on-line sampling from an ambient environment. The continuous nature of the inlet ensures full compatibility with separation technique ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
Interactive Sensor Fusion for Context-Aware DiscriminationSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: MDA15T001
We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots.

Data Driven Intent Recognition FrameworkSBC: Other Lab Inc. Topic: NSF13599
A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Nonlinear-DSP-Enabled RF-Photonic LinkSBC: RAM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: N14AT023
Digital equalizers have been the major enablers in RF communications in terms of managing component imperfections and channel impairments. Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication systems to deal with impairments as well as allowing higher capacities in the information transfer.On ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Development of a Micro-glider for Oceanographic Air-Sea Interaction SamplingSBC: MRV SYSTEMS LLC Topic: N14AT020
This proposal is a collaborative effort between MRV Systems and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The goal is to develop a new, small, inexpensive autonomous vehicle to investigate mixed layer dynamics and turbulent mixing. The preliminary Phase I design, a Diagonally Operating Platform (DOP), is a profiling float with moveable fins. DOP will turn toward an intended direction within a few ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM ApplicationsSBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: DTRA16A004
For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
