  1. Novel high strength capacitor dielectrics

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: OSD04EP7

    Compact, high volumetric energy density, pulse-power capacitors are an enabling technology for future DoD weapon systems. These capacitors will be used in pulse forming networks (PFNs) for the conversion of prime electrical energy into short pulses needed for directed energy and kinetic energy weapons and high power microwaves. To accomplish these objectives, improvements in the capacitor dielec ...

  2. Coherent Eye-safe High-power Surface-emitting Laser Arrays

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: AF04156

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop and deliver prototypes of high power, coherent 1550 nm Grating-outcoupled Surface-Emitting (GSE) laser array modules with integrated lenses for military detection and ranging applications. These eye-safe lasers will deliver 15 W of peak power with high coherence (relative to broad area edge-emitting lasers), wavelength stability ...

  3. Development of High-Temperature Aircraft Camouflage Coatings

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF04127

    During the reverse thrust landing, areas of the C-17 aircraft become very hot and the current aliphatic polyurethane camouflage coating discolors and delaminates. The uncoated metal is reflective giving the C-17 a clear visual signature and mitigating survivability. In the Phase I effort TRI/Austin developed and tested novel ambient cured, high-temperature resistant, color matched, camouflage coat ...

  4. Enhancement of YBCO Coated Conductor Performance by In Situ Chemical Pinning


    Advanced coated conductor development for high current carrying capacity HTS wires and tapes requires a high current density and also a large YBCO film thickness in the coated conductor. The inclusion of secondary phase particles, i.e., Chemical Pinning, is a highly viable approach to increase Jc from a production point of view, especially since in our application of metal organic chemical vapour ...

  5. Fuel Cell Powered 25K Loader Using Plasma Reformed JP8

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF04278

    With the ever increasing importance of reducing the environmental impact of CO2 and nitrogen oxide (NOx) producing vehicles and aircraft, designers of vehicle propulsion systems are facing greater and greater challenges. In addition to reducing emissions in these systems, any modifications to existing systems must adhere to strict safety, performance, and cost requirements. Electric vehicle prop ...

  6. Flat Panel UV/X-ray Bio-decontamination System

    SBC: Stellar Micro Devices            Topic: AF04004

    A novel flat panel decontamination system (FPDS) which can emit simultaneously in both the ultraviolet-C (concentrated at 250 - 260 nm) and X-ray spectra will meet DoD bio-decontamination needs. This system builds on two recent innovations -- UV-C nanophosphors and robust flat panel cold cathodes -- which make possible for the first time a compact, efficient single source for both these spectra.

  7. Structure from Motion

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF04170

    The Real-Time Structure From Motion (RTSFM) system combines state-of-the-art techniques and novel methods to compute 3D models of battlefields in real time from calibrated image sequences. Unlike most computational stereo approaches, the work is tailored for long sequences of calibrated imagery under near-planar small-baseline motion – sequences typically generated from loitering unmanned aeria ...

  8. Adaptive Trajectory Reshaping and Control System for RLVs (ATRC)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04247

    The ultimate goal of the proposed Adaptive Trajectory Reshaping and Control (ATRC) project is to develop an online response technology that allows autonomous RLVs to avoid catastrophic failure when subjected to performance restricting damages and failures. The main focus in Phase-II is to develop and demonstrate a response system that continuously reshapes and optimizes the reference trajector ...

  9. Waste Disposal/Management System for Low Observable (LO) Composite Materials

    SBC: WELLS SIGNATURE PRODUCTS LLC            Topic: AF04136

    A mobile thermochemical processing system is proposed to recycle LO-containing materials to merchant products that cannot be “reverse engineered” to their LO composition or structure- essentially, “thermochemical encryption.” Additionally, the system will include extraction and/or conversion processes that remove hazardous characteristics, qualifying the output for beneficial reuse. As a c ...

  10. Environmentally Friendly Luciferase-based Illumination Technology

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF04145

    Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to utilizing bioluminescent materials that can be lighter and do not leave behind non-biodegradable debris. ...
