  1. Superconducting Developments for Compact Power and Energy Systems

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: OSD04EP6

    In summary, the proposed Phase II work furthers our understanding of 2G coil behavior and demonstrates coil technology through fabrication of a substantial prototype device using several hundred meters of 2G wire. The objective is technology-readiness for high power density rotating electric machines and magnet applications, such as gyrotrons. The thermal and mechanical properties of 2G coils ...

  2. Coil Simulator for AC Conductors

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF04T002

    This STTR Project addresses stability issues in Second Generation High Temperature Super- conductor (2G HTS) wire. It explores novel ways to address and characterize 2G HTS stability, in particular when used under ac conditions. In the Phase I novel components for increased stability were explored. Stability of various conductors was tested. A so-called "Coil Simulator” was designed. In the Phas ...

  3. Coil Simulators for AC Conductors

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF04T002

    This STTR Project addresses stability issues in Second Generation High Temperature Superconductor (2G HTS) wire and will test novel components for increased stability and measurement techniques to evaluate stability at a wide range of conditions, in particular for demanding military AC HTS applications. Wire fabrication at AMSC and testing experiments at FSU will focus on AC stability and quench ...

  4. High Critical Current in Metal Organic Derived YBCO Films

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T009

    Second Generation (2G) High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wire based on the YBCO coated conductor is being developed for new military and commercial applications not accessible to First Generation (1G) HTS wires. Although a critical current (Ic) of nearly 300A/cm-w (77K, sf) has been obtained in 10-meter lengths of 2G conductors, significant improvement in the Ic of practical conductors is re ...

  5. Novel 2G conductor Design for AC Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: OSD04EP4

    Second Generation High Temperature Superconductor (2G) wire is providing new capabilities critical for various military applications. The enhanced flux pinning at 65K, the lower limit for liquid nitrogen cooling, is useful for achieving useful power densities at magnetic fields of 1-3 T. For the use of 2G wires for AC applications substantial modifications are required to the present 2G wire arch ...

  6. Lightweight Power Transformer for Shipboard Electrical Power Distribution Systems

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: OSD04EP5

    A topology for a medium voltage to low voltage 3-phase power converter is proposed. It consists of a clean power rectifier followed by multiple isolated DC to DC converters using commercially available high frequency transformers with very low core losses when driven by a quasi-resonant inverter operating in the 20 to 50 kHz range. The DC to DC input DC busses are placed in series, while the out ...

  7. Automating Software Protection with the Random Obfuscating Compiler Version 2 (ROC2) running on Beowulf Clusters

    SBC: ANGEL SECURE NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: OSD04SP3

    Our Random Obfuscating Compiler2 (“ROC2”) automated toolset will protect DoD HPC executables running on Beowulf clusters from reverse engineering or compromise. Preliminary DoD HPC research is often conducted on university Beowulfs, which are also used by unscreened researchers and students. The US is engaged in an arms race and must protect valuable IP. A ROC2 toolset is feasible now. Phas ...

  8. Automating Software Protection with the Random Obfuscating Compiler Version 2 (ROC2) running on Beowulf Clusters

    SBC: ANGEL SECURE NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: OSD04SP3

    We propose to develop ROC2 to protect software from reverse engineering or compromise by automatically inserting strong Protect/Detect/React functionality into binaries by obfuscating executables, providing randomly different variants of the same binary, and permitting the software only to run on the target site, all without performance penalty or knowledge of source code. ROC2 extends the Random ...

  9. Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis of Verbal and Behavioral Data in Dynamic Mission Operations

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF04058

    Assessment of communications in simulation based training suffers from (1) slow pace, (2) a reliance on communications data to the exclusion of behavioral and contextual data, (3) use of a single language model to handle multiple forms of language, and (4) failure to systematically address Mission Essential Competencies. We propose to build on our insights and success from Phase I to (1) develop ...

  10. Model-based Optimal System for Training (MOST)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF04T014

    The Model-based Optimal System for Training (MOST) is an optimal Intelligent Team Tutoring System (ITTS) for training team and individual resource allocation skills. MOST will contain five models; (1) an optimal task performance model (expert model), (2) an optimal context model, (3) an optimal feedback model, (4) an optimal procedural training model, and (5) a student model. The optimal context, ...
