  1. SiC accelerometers for harsh environments

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Sensors and control electronics based on SiC offer an opportunity to realize systems with operating temperatures approaching 500 degrees C. The unique high temperature properties and chemical robustness of SiC make it an ideal choice for applications where generic components and sensors need to function under widely varying environmental conditions The wide range of environments in which military ...

  2. In-Cylinder Micromachined Pressure Transducers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Increasingly strict emissions requirements and the need to increase fuel economy and reduce service intervals have dramatically accelerated the use of monitor and control electronics in engines. traditional methods such as adjusting the air/fuel ratio to optimize catalyst performance are not effective enough to meet future requirements. Measurement of the pressure in each cylinder permits enhanc ...

  3. BST Capacitors for Cryogenic Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Although imaging in the 8-12 micron spectral region has widespread uses, high background radiation result sin low contrast, and charge storage in SiO2 capacitors limits the signal-to-noise and the upper limit of the dynamic range. A major opportunity exists to increase the performance of IR focal plan arrays (IRFPAs) using high dielectric constant BaSrTiO3 (BST) films to increase charge storage at ...

  4. An Intelligent Sensor Subsystem for Combustion Control in Engines

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will fabricate an array of gas-sensing elements from pulsed-laser deposited (PLD) metal oxide thin films on silicon wafers, which will be integrated with fiberoptics and a digital signal processor (DSP) for device operation, readout, and signal conditioning. The developed sensor instrument that can be used as a subsystem for combustion contr ...

  5. Superlight, Low-Observable, Diesel Generator Set

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The project aims to develop a new light-weight generator set for 3 to 10 kW of power, at 120 Vac and 60 Hz, using an ultra-high-speed diesel engine by D-STAR Engineering, an ultra-light, high-speed generator and VSCF technologies by BF Goodrich Aerospace - Engine Electrical Systems Division, and a composite noise-encapsulation housing designed with the help of Center for Composite Materials at the ...

  6. Processing 100% Silica Optical Fiber Waveguides Using Sol-Gel Technology

    SBC: Fiber Optic Fabrications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently optical fibers are drawn from preforms that require complicated processing steps and repeated batch-type handling. This increases the cost of the ultimate fiber because preform cost often represents more than 50% of the fiber cost. Additionally, since the preform rod has a specific volume, the length of the fiber that can be drawn is limited. This increases the number of optical couple ...

  7. Disability data management for state and local planning.

    SBC: Integrated Research And            Topic: N/A

    Disability is the nation's largest public health issue; with over 35 million Americans experiencing disability and annual disability-related costs exceeding $170 billion. Planning for the efficient and equitable allocations of state and local rehabilitation services has generally been inadequate, however. Geographic information systems (GIS) approaches have the potential to dramatically improve ...

  8. Enhanced Optical Limiting Thin Films by Jet Vapor Deposition

    SBC: Jet Process Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Reverse saturable absorbers (RSAs) are optically nonlinear materials that show increasingly high absorption at higher light intensities, and are thus excellent candidate materials for making optical limiters. However, the highest optical nonlinearities of the currently known RSAs are at least two orders of magnitude too low to be practically useful. The focus of our Phase I project is to use Jet ...

  9. Design Study of Small Low-cost E-beam Fluegas Scrubbers

    SBC: L & W Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A major environmental problem in both industrialized and developing countries is the emission of oxides of sulfur (SO2) and nitrogen (NOx) from the stacks of coal- or oil-fired power plants. A promising technology for the remediation of these pollutants is the use of electron-beam scrubbers, which break the oxides down into harmless materials. So far, cost of e-beam technology has been a major p ...

  10. Abradable Seal Development for Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Shrouds in High Performance Turbine Engines

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Currnet Ni-based metallic turbine shrouds, coated with ceramic abradable materials, are limited to temperatures not exceeding 2,100 F. Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) demands gas turbine hot sections with operational temperatures up to 2,500 F (1,370 C). Ceramic fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) such as SiC/RBSN are candidate materials for these hig ...
