  2. AHigh Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    Internal combustion engines with power-to-weight ratios significantly higher than 1 Hp/lb which operate on low flash point fuels are enabling for powering Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Conventional Otto, Diesel and Wankel cycle engines even if constructed in advanced light-weight materials cannot meet the required power-to-weight and volume ratios and have high cost. A breakthrough in engine de ...

  3. A Plasma Process to Apply Refractory Metal Coatings to Continuous Lengths of Copper Alloy Rails

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT025

    High strength copper alloys are preferred as the base rails for railguns due to their combination of strength and electrical and thermal conductivity, but suffer damage due to high current densities, arcing, gouging, and exposure to molten aluminum armatures. A refractory metal/alloy coating on the copper base alloy is an attractive approach for increasing rail life if the refractory metal coating ...

  4. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: N10AT037

    The Team of M-DOT Aerospace and University of Texas, Arlington propose to analyze, construct and test a 40 mm foil thrust bearing featuring a unique bump foil concept and top-foil profile designed by Dr. Daejong Kim. The design is simple, affording low production cost in high quantity. The design can be adapted for use on small gas turbines, small turbochargers and any small rotating machine that ...

  5. Optical Cooling of RF systems using an All Optical Fiber Approach

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N10AT017

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as high-power RF amplifiers. In our approach, the cooling fiber segment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NP Photonics' high efficiency thulium-doped fiber lasers are used to pump high purity thulium-doped glass fibers, which provide the ...

  8. Innovative Joining of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics (UHTC) for TPS Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF09BT24

    Ultra High Temperature Ceramics (UHTC’s) such as zirconium and hafnium diboride based composites are of particular interest for hypersonic leading edges due to their extreme refractoriness. Successful integration into hypersonic structures will require high strength / high temperature joints to bond ceramic-ceramic or ceramic-metal that can sustain the mechanical and thermal loadings at speeds ...

  10. Data Adaptive Fusion for Information Assurance / Information Operations

    SBC: Physical Layer Systems LLC            Topic: AF09BT09

    We propose a nine month research program to demonstrate the potential of a set of novel data fusion methods for detecting and localizing distributed patterns of interest in complex networked systems. The technical challenges posed by this problem are significant, but, if they are overcome, the tactical impact is great. Tactical hierarchical sensor networks envisioned or deployed currently operate ...
