  1. Gas-Kinetic Simulation of Separated Flows

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: SB072006

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic CFD solver for separated flow simulation. Compared with the traditional macroscopic CFD approach, a gas-kinetic CFD approach is more suitable for turbulent separated flow simulation. This is because a gas-kinetic model with the turbulence relaxation time can represent rich and complex physics when projected onto hydrodynamic variables and the tur ...

  2. Alternative Aggregate Combat Modeling Algorithms

    SBC: Gnosys, Inc.            Topic: ST071003

    We propose to develop a means of combining unit-level and entity-level combat simulations that combines the best features of both and avoids the problems and overhead of multi-resolution simulations and inter-level interactions. The essential idea, which will be elaborated in the following sections, is to develop new alternative aggregate-level algorithms for key combat phenomenology (moving, sen ...

  3. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    The program objective to develop a sensor system to enable teleoperation or autonomous behavior of small serpentine robots includes the following technical objectives in the Phase I effort: 1.) Conduct feasibility study for creation of a real time 3D representation of local terrain for use on the moving nose or tail of the serpentine robot 2.) Develop plans for design and demonstration of the most ...

  4. Advanced Multi-Layer Thermal Barrier Coatings with Enhanced Durability Against Calcium Magnesium Alumino-Silicate (CMAS) Corrosion

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: SB062003

    This Phase I SBIR DARPA Program proposes the development of advanced nano-composite thermal barrier coating (NCTBC) with the enhancement of corrosion resistance from the molten CMAS (Calcium Magnesium Aluminum Silicate) and extension of TBC life at high operating temperature for turbine components. The coating is applied by MOCVD. MER Corporation proposes the use of an advanced nano-composite ther ...

  5. Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: SB072045

    Proposed is a power system suitable for operation to altitudes of 100K feet or more and capable of operating for 12-20 hours at a time. The system will be storable for years in a sealed container. It will have thermal efficiency sufficient for meeting the 20-hour endurance requirement while still being storable within the required size envelope. It will feature turbomachinery and technologies a ...

  6. SOI MESFETs for Ultra-Low Power Electronic Circuits

    SBC: SJT Micropower            Topic: ST071007

    Simulations of high performance silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MESFETs show that they can be used for ultra-low power (ULP) radio frequency electronics with power added efficiencies (PAE) that are 10 times higher than existing solutions. The high PAE comes from the enhanced voltage swing that the MESFETs can tolerate (5-50V) compared to current VLSI CMOS technologies (1-5V). The SOI MESFETs can be fab ...

  7. Non-Toxic Chemical Formulation for Incapacitation and Destruction of Small Arms and Light Weapons

    SBC: Ventana Research Corporation            Topic: ST061010

    In an attempt to deal with a growing number of weapon caches, Ventana Research will team-up with the University of Arizona to develop a non-toxic, cost-efficient resins formulation which will immediately incapacitate small arms and light weaponry. In addition this resin will also cause significant corrosion of ordinance steel over a prolonged time period.

  8. ULTRA-LINEAR ELECTRO-OPTIC DIRECTIONAL COUPLER BASED ON HYBRID SOL-GEL/EO POLYIMIDE WAVEGUIDES

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: SB062016

    The goal of this proposal is to Design, fabricate, and demonstrate a low optical loss polymer directional coupler modulator with a total insertion fiber to fiber optical loss of less than 6 dB, has a high speed of greater than 20 GHz and a drive voltage (Vp) of less than 1 Volt. We will employ polymer-solgel hybrid modulators that result in reduced fiber-to waveguide loss and enhance the r33 of th ...

  9. Active RF Circulators

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: SB052016

    Applied Radar Inc. proposes the development of active MMIC-based circulators in order to achieve high isolation between transmit and receive paths for simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) phased-array radar system architectures. This technology will enable increased persistence in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems and allow multiple simultaneous radar modes including ...

  10. Novel Propulsion Using Humphrey Cycle or Other Concepts

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: SB052026

    M-DOT proposes to study application of a proprietary rotary expander as a quasi-Constant-Volume Combustor (CVC) in a gas turbine. Whereas CVC has been explored as a topping element (to increase max cycle pressure) within the Brayton cycle, it has generally involved reciprocating piston or wave rotor embodiments. The rotary expander should provide constant-volume pressure rise combustion with smo ...
