  1. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  2. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  3. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...

  4. An Innovative Silicon Carbide (SiC) 6-KV, 1-KA Gate Turn Off (GTO) Thyristor

    SBC: SemiSouth Laboratories            Topic: 45

    A high-voltage, high-current, SiC power switch is required by the existing utility infrastructure and its need to interconnect renewable energy sources to the grid (such as wind and solar photovoltaic). Renewable energy sources require new types of equipment with challenging issues not usually borne by the utility industry, including severe constraints on size, weight, and cost. This project wil ...

  5. A New High-Resolution Method for the Characterization of Heterogeneous Subsurface Environments: Providing Flow and Transport Parameters via the Integration of MultiScale HydroGeophysical Data

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 49

    Historically, remediation efforts at DOE contaminated sites have relied on numerical models to integrate laboratory and field characterization data, predict the fate and transport behavior of contaminant plumes, design remediation protocols to mitigate contaminant migration, and analyze data from field remediation results. Of particular concern is the effect of subsurface heterogeneities and thei ...

  6. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  7. High Temperature POSS Resins for Filament Wound Composites

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF02193

    The successful Phase I effort to incorporate POSS into BMI resin resulted in substantial Tg and HDT improvements while reducing the cure temperature. The proposed Phase II effort will optimize the formulaiton while characterizing the full scope and range of enhancement in filament wound composite structures.

  8. Radiation-Resistant Nanoscopically Enhanced Solar Cell Coverglass

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF05022

    Hybrid Plastics proposes to develop a low cost, and versatile method for shielding commercial and military solar cells from damage against proton and electron radiation. The technical approach utilizes metallized nanoscopic polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes as conformal coatings on coverglass and on solar cell surfaces. Such coatings would permit spacecraft designers to increase duty cycles wh ...

  10. Nano Graphene Plate-Reinforced Polymer Composites

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 20

    79671S Attempts to produce Carbon Nano Tube(CNT) in large quantities have been fraught with overwhelming challenges due to poor yield, costly fabrication, and the need for the purifying processes required to make them useful in applications. This project will develop an alternative nanoscale carbon material with comparable properties that can be produced cost-effectively and in larger quantities ...
