  1. Model-Guided Development of Spin-Dependent-Tunnel Junctions for Magnetoelectronic Devices

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: NSF02056EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II Program will demonstrate a magnetic field sensor device of high sensitivity using spin-dependent tunnel (SDT) materials. The tunnel materials will be developed with guidance from the state of the art realistic atomistic modeling and aided by state of the art nanostructural characterization techniques of 3-D atom probe and high-resolution transmissio ...

  2. Strategic Monitoring of Spacecraft Mechanical Parts Assemblies

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: MDA04T022

    Bearing failure in satellite applications is related to lubricant starvation rather than fatigue, and health monitoring systems for these applications must be able to observe subtle changes related to lubrication state. Phase I included an experimental study to identify candidate monitoring approaches, and the data collected confirmed that cage motion characteristics and instability are highly sen ...

  3. Securely configurable gate arrays utilizing anti-tamper memory

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T008

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project proposal describes a program to develop secure FPGA architectures and configuration algorithms that exploit the unique capabilities of a new anti-tamper memory technology called AT-MRAM, that provides strong protection against invasive attacks used to recover the intellectual property stored in the FPGA configuration. AT-MRAM provides protec ...

  6. Freeform Optical Systems for Defense System Optics

    SBC: THIRD WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA07T006

    Freeform optical surfaces offer advantages over axis-symmetric surfaces in the ability to reduce optical sizes, increase performance and reduce aberrations. However, the description, fabrication and metrology of these surfaces can be difficult and costly, prohibiting their ability to achieve their full potential. Fabrication of these surfaces can be difficult, since they are not axis-symmetric and ...

  7. Novel, Optimal, Physics-Based Reduced Order Models for Nonlinear Aeroelasticity

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT03

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order nonlinear aeroelastic models for multidisciplinary/multi-fidelity optimization problems. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism of optimal prediction theory and a novel implementation of a filtered harmonic balance solution met ...

  8. Multi-layered lightweight alloy development for improved blast and penetration resistance

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: A09AT010

    This program is to develop multi-layered,light weight armor alloys systems that offer improved fragmentation and armor piercing performance as compared to any other monolithic structures. Such alloys and laminated configuration will be developed by utilizing advanced computational techniques to assist in the development of complimentary alloys that would provide an optimal combination of hardness ...

  9. Non-Intrusive Health Monitoring for Post-Battle Wellness Management

    SBC: RED WING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Technical Abstract Current economic conditions and an aging population are increasing the strain on the Medicaid program, which is the main funding source for long-term skilled nursing care. In 2008, Medicaid spending for long-term care was $99.9 billion and growing at a rate of 8.6% annually. Given that the population of persons over 65 years of age is expected to grow from 35 million in the ye ...
