  1. Advanced Corrosion Resistant Coating Systems for Preservation of Aerospace and Infrastructure Systems Used in Military and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Porter Scientific, Inc.            Topic: AF112217

    ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to prevent the intrusion of moisture associated waterborne ions and the diffusion of oxygen to the metallic ...

  4. Daytime Detection and Tracking of Objects in a Geosynchronous or Geo-transfer Orbit

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF121011

    ABSTRACT: In this research PDS plans to use existing telescopes and sensors at MSSS with minor modifications to detect and track Geosynchronous or Geo-transfer vehicles during daylight. The main obstacle to viewing satellites in daylight is the bright sky foreground. The bright foreground problem has been solved in the field of LWIR astronomy where the foreground signal is due to thermal self-e ...

  5. Feature Identification from Unresolved Electro-optical Data

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF121010

    ABSTRACT: Space situational awareness is often limited by the ability of sensors to produce resolved data on space objects. Large objects cannot be resolved with small low-cost telescopes; objects in geo-synchronous orbit are too remote to be resolved. The best hope of ending these limitations is to make it possible to determine important features of space objects from unresolved data, typically ...

  6. Floral Disruptor- Directed Energy Weed Abatement and Prevention Tool

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF121207

    ABSTRACT: Leveraging expertise in plant physiology, biology, electro-optics, rf, electrical engineering, physics and signal processing, Oceanit proposes to develop an innovative device to prevent and control unwanted plants and weeds. BENEFIT: Oceanit's directed energy weed abatement and control system will provide a non-toxic method to effectively kill and stop the growth of unwanted plan ...

  7. Graphene Memory Device

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF121055

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened digital memory in aerospace and defense applications and in long-life, high-speed memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight with device redundancy and shielding. Recent focus on Graphene and its capabilities ...

  8. High Conductance Thermal Interface Material for Use in Space Applications

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, NanoTechLabs (NTL)will develop a space-qualifiable, high-conductance, thermal interface material (TIM) for use in space-based flanged heat-pipe-to-heat-pipe joints or for mounting relatively small area units with stiff baseplates and high power loads. NanoTechLabs will exploit its novel carbon nanotube vertical array material and manufacturing pro ...

  9. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  10. High Range Resolution (HRR)-Surrogate SAR Target Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112137

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has invested considerable resources into collecting and synthesizing radar data for training and testing ATC/R systems. Significant cost savings may be realized if these existing datasets may be leveraged for training new sensors and modalities. Signal Innovations Group offers a new paradigm for automatically identifying statistically salient features for ATR systems fro ...
