SBC: 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
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: DHP16A001
Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: MDA14T002
Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of failure in microelectronics, which raises reliability concerns for MDA and its system integrators. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a physics based modeling and testing protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditions to stress ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF16AT14
Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N16AT005
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: 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
Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear Protection of Military Aircraft and Weapon SystemsSBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF15AT31
Coating materials and coating methods used to protect U.S. military aircraft and weapon systems from corrosion and wear are in need of environmentally benign alternatives in order to keep up with dynamic regulations associated with environment, safety, and occupational health. Thus, the Air Force is supporting research to develop alternatives to the dangerous materials identified on the OSD Emergi ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC Topic: A15AT017
A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: VIBRANT CORP Topic: DLA15C001
Vibrant Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) propose to apply Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) to the DLA's need for an NDI method to detect counterfeit, nonconforming and improperly processed materiel. PCRT collects and analyzes the resonance frequencies of a component to detect structural defects, characterize material, analyze population variation, monitor manufacturin ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N16AT024
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SOCRATES free space optical communication and sensing system featuring the Photonic Optical Multicast Mast Unit (POMMU). SOCRATES enables 360 degree multicast capability of high bandwidth communication in addition threat search and track capability.
