  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Resonant cavity spectrometer on a chip

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT39

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of chip level high resolution spectrometers using waveguide coupled resonant cavities. The basic concept can be used from visible to long wave IR wavelengths, limited only by available detector arrays and materials for low loss waveguides. Our proposed development will concentrate on short wave I ...

  8. Novel Propellants for Variable Thrust/Isp Colloid Thrusters

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Advanced spacecraft will demand thrusters that provide both extremely efficient operation for attitude control and high thrust for orbital transfer maneuvers, albeit with lower specific impulse. The colloid thruster, the most efficient of the electric thruster concepts, forms a Taylor cone to emit charged particles and produce thrust. Colloid thrusters typically emit charged droplets ...

  9. Network Virtualization

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF103048

    ABSTRACT: Virtualization technologies have the capability to provide significant improvements in horizontal network scalability. There are significant challenges, however, when adapting these technologies to tactical networks, where bandwidth, latency, and connection reliability issues combine to foil network characteristics that many network protocols within a virtualized network rely on. In p ...

  10. Modular Antenna System for Tracking Satellites by adaptations of existing terminals

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF103056

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this Phase I program is to develop and evaluate the feasibility of concepts that will allow existing vehicular and man-portable SATCOM terminals operating in the 20/44 GHz range to be adapted to track satellites in all kinds of orbits. Although most SATCOM terminals in this band are designed to interact primarily with satellites in geostationary (GEO) orbits, there is a sign ...
