14 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Technical Data Analysis, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T002
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

Most of current available methods for prediction of fatigue failure -such as cumulative damage models, cyclic plastic energy hypothesis, crack propagation rate models, and empirically-derived relationships -are based on empirical relations and their application requires many unknown parameters that must be experimentally determined or calibrated...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T026
Budget: 08/31/11 - 03/06/12

The objective of this research is to develop materials that may replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low flame so that they do present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that co...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Global Engineering & Materials, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT29
Budget: 04/15/10 - 01/14/11

The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of new multi-scale models for linking higher order micro-structure descriptions to failure initiation and crack propagation for high cycle fatigue of high strength titanium alloys. This includes new high temperature materials such as the lightweight intermetallic titanium aluminide tur...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: MathSense Analytics

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT21
Budget: 04/01/10 - 12/31/10

The key to making quantum key distribution practical (especially for free-space applications) is to be able to use weak laser pulses (WLP) instead of single photons, while at the same time making sure that any third party wanting to avoid detection and mount an eavesdropping attack is restricted to using beam-splitting rather than photon-number ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Migma Systems, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Under NASA Phase I funding, we have developed a system for the ball bearing fault detection and identification. Our system can effectively identify multiple fault modes related to the evolution of friction within the contact in the coated ball bearings. To detect bearing faulty modes, we have developed a new bispectrum and entropy analysis metho...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Decisive Analytics Corp.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Our proposal and the Phase I work completed under it addressed these NASA-identified needs by providing software infrastructure that provides physical scientists a "plug-and-play" architecture in which they can insert their "physics kernels" and exploit very large existing code bases for the computer science aspects of the problem. In particula...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Decisive Analytics Corp.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

We will design and implement an interface between the Paramesh computational libraries, developed and used by groups at NASA GSFC, and the Cactus computational framework, developed primarily by scientists at Louisiana State University, the RI on this proposal. Our innovation falls in the domain of adaptive mesh refinement (AMR), a technique to ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Migma Systems, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The investigation of the coating friction as a function of time is important to monitor the ball bearing heath. Despite the importance of the subject mater, there is a crucial lack of information in the literature about coating life and friction force in ball bearings as coating wear of progressively increases. Here we propose to develop a strat...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Sierra Engineering, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03T-005
Budget: 08/31/04 - 08/30/06

The utilization of High Test Hydrogen Peroxide (HTP) as military propellant can be greatly simplified by replacing the classical catalyst bed with a novel thermal decomposer. A thermal peroxide decomposition system offers the potential to enhance the operability and system safety margin of peroxide systems. Fundamental knowledge of decompositi...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Sierra Engineering, Inc.

Institution: Louisiana State University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03T-005
Budget: 07/25/03 - 01/29/04

Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) proposes to perform the fundamental research necessary to understand the thermal decomposition kinetics of High Test Peroxide (HTP) and its interactions with common stabilizers, in order to produce a practical thermal decomposer. The utilization of HTP as rocket propellant can be greatly simplified by using a th...
