  1. 20 year backup battery

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: A09022

    The maintenance of hardware by the use of battery back-up systems or monitoring sensors is vital for critical systems. The failure of a battery due to aging or environment is the equivalent of having no back-up. Current primary batteries used for such tasks have an anticipated life far less than the equipment they are installed in. Periodic replacement of batteries in these critical systems is exp ...

  2. 370W Very Small Heavy Fuel Engine

    SBC: JM HARWOOD, LLC            Topic: A11068

    JM Harwood, LLC, proposes the development of a 370W (0.5 hp) small heavy fuel engine. The 6 cubic centimeter (cc) compression ignition, direct fuel injected, 2-stroke will leverage on-going work on a very small heavy fuel (VSHF) combustion test bed funded by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL). The proposed effort will also leverage on-going development efforts on the Very Small Injection Technol ...

  3. A Compact CO Oxidation System

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N091035

    Navy aircraft are equipped with an On-Board Oxygen Generation System (OBOGS) to supply the pilot and the crew with supplemental oxygen for high altitude operation. However, Navy aircraft are usually closely spaced while waiting for take-off from aircraft carriers, and the jet engine exhaust contaminates the bleed air used to supply oxygen to the pilot and crew. Among the contaminants in the engine ...

  6. A CONTINUOUSLY TUNABLE 2-5 MICRON LASER USING INTRACAVITY SHIFTING IN A DIODE LASER PUMPED Cr:LiSAF OSCILLATOR

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A continuously tunable laser source covering the 2-5 micron wavelength region is proposed. Light generated by a diode laser pumped tunable Cr:LiSAF laser is Raman shifted twice in Hydrogen to nicely cover the 205 micron window. The unique feature of the proposed laser is that the Raman shifting cell and optics are placed inside the pump laser cavity. As a result sufficient gain and interaction len ...

  7. A Distributed Sensor Manager

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Many tactical scenarios include coordinated actions by distributed platforms. Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Lockheed Ft. Worth Company will develop innovative methods for handling sensor management among distributed heterogeneous sensing platforms of varying degrees of coupling. This work builds on DFC's work on sensor management and Lockheed's work on multi-platform resource sharing. Platf ...

  8. A General Solver Framework for Radiative Heat Transfer Models in Combustion Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    ABSTRACT:Modern combustion systems such as gas-turbine combustors and rocket engines are characterized by high operating pressures and temperatures due to increased power density. Thermal radiation has significant impact on both, the heat fluxes at the wall and physical phenomena controlling the combustion process. The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a general, computationally efficie ...

  9. A GPS Small Rocket Tracking System for Meteorological and Atmospheric Research

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    NAVSYS has developed a low cost sensor, the TIDGET (TM), which is currently being used for tracking weather balloons, but also has application for small rockets. The TIDGET sensor operates by buffering brief snapshots of GPS data for transmission to a ground processing system through an on-board telemetry link. This simplified the functionality in the rocket payload. Conventional GPS receivers ...

  10. A High Capacity Solid State Battery for Wireless Sensor Applications

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N151048

    The U.S. Navy is seeking an energy storage solution that delivers high energy density and improved safety for wireless sensor applications. Current secondary batteries cannot provide sufficient energy and power density required for the Navys applications. In addition, the current batteries are not intrinsically safe as they use flammable liquid electrolyte, while our proposed technology has the ab ...
