  1. High Efficiency Flexible Photovoltaic Blankets

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: MicroLink proposes a device that combines ultra-thin, high-efficiency, GaAs-based multijunction solar cells, made using our proprietary epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process, with a novel packaging approach that will result in high-efficiency, flexible photovoltaic blankets. MicroLink has developed a process that produces ultra-thin, flexible solar cells. In this project, these flexible so ...

  2. Hybrid Optical and Magnetic Ultracold Atom Chip System

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: This work proposes the design of a complete, compact, hybrid atom chip system for producing ultracold atoms, allowing subsequent control and manipulation of ultracold atoms using both optical and magnetic fields. Its emphasis is on optical lattice potentials and also complex potentials imposed by spatially varying magnetic and optical fields. Atom chips that incorporate optical windows ...

  3. Nanoparticles to Sequester and Facilitate In Vivo Excretion of Lipophilic Molecules

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are lipophilic agents derived from fungus that pose a significant public health problem around the world. The effects of mycotoxins include loss of human and animal life, increased healthcare and veterinary costs, reduced livestock production, and disposal of contaminated foods and feeds. Mycotoxins, such as aflatoxin and T-2 mycotoxins, have been reported to be weaponized as ...

  4. Modified Nanoparticles for Lipophilic Toxin Sequestration

    SBC: AuraSense, LLC            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are a class of weaponizable toxic secondary metabolites of molds and fungi. No treatments exist for exposure to these lipophilic poisons. AuraSense proposes to use lipid and protein modified gold nanoparticles to develop constructs for the sequestration of toxic lipophilic molecules. Nanoparticles are ideal materials for development of such a system, as they are able to be fi ...

  5. Quantum Dot Nanocomposite Based Novel Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long lifetime requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently, substantial interest has developed in harvesting energy derived from thermal gradients (e.g., due to solar ...

  7. Holographic Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: Chiaro Technologies LLC            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I feasibility study is a collaboration between Chiaro Technologies LLC (Chiaro) and the University of Colorado (CU). The program assesses the feasibility of a prototype holographic range-Doppler signal processor with a code-name"HORUS". The HORUS processor can take element signals from a large linear phased array to produce simultaneous range-Doppler maps across many an ...

  8. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: Capco Inc.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the proposed STTR is to develop a low-cost, high performance material which is capable of directionally-tailored thermal emission and/or transmission control. By combining advanced electromagnetic band structure engineering techniques with low-cost, self-assembled fabrication methods, highly tunable, narrow-band emissivity control can be achieved over the entire ...

  9. Agile beam/wavefront control for sub-aperture-based imaging systems

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT35

    ABSTRACT: Boulder Nonlinear Systems recently developed and delivered a beam scanner that non-mechanically steers a monochromatic, 5-cm beam over an 80a x 80a field of regard (FOR) with sub-milliradian resolution. This prototype uses a transmissive, wide-angle stepper (coarse steering unit), which is very compact and easily inserts into conformal, sub-aperture assemblies. To provide high resolut ...

  10. Novel Signal Processing Techniques for Ballistic Coefficient Prediction

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF10BT36

    ABSTRACT: Tracking of objects orbiting the Earth is of critical importance for continued safe development and use of space. Particularly important are low Earth orbit (LEO) objects, since these make up the majority of objects in the space catalog. To track these LEO objects, accurate models of the dominant forces are needed. Besides gravity, the dominant force on LEO objects is atmospheric drag a ...
