  1. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  2. Behind-the-Meter, Distributed Scale CSP System Enabled by Very Low-cost Working Fluid and Thermal Storage

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12f

    In some areas of the USA and Europe, the installed capacity of renewable generation has reached a level at which wholesale energy prices can drop below zero due to overproduction relative to baseload capacity. The value of energy exported to the grid for behind-the-meter (BTM) systems is dropping, with policies in many states now promoting self-consumption of produced energy rather than net-meteri ...

  3. Device to Promote Snow Shedding from PV Panels to Improve Energy Yield and Critical Infrastructure Resilience

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12d

    Winter storms cause disruptions to transportation, the electrical grid, heating, business operation, emergency management services and on PV solar generation. Large storms can create dangerous, extreme conditions across entire regions and therefore the low-cost recovery of electricity supply and generation is of critical importance. After winter storms, PV arrays can be covered with snow for days ...

  4. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    As the “new space� revolution develops, the number of small satellites is expected to grow to thousands launched each year. Following the current commercial satellite demonstration period, production spacecraft and constellations will depend on innovative micro-scaled propulsion technology to meet mission capability and endurance requirements. Most satellite integrators and end-users ...

  5. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF18BT003

    Aircrews and dismounted soldiers can experience several changes in ambient illumination during a single deployment; from very dark conditions inside of buildings/caves to extremely bright full sun. In addition, illumination conditions can change rapidly. The current solution for adequate eye protection is to carry multiple sets of goggles and glasses, or wear helmets with multiple visors. Eye prot ...

  6. Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload (IPMP)

    SBC: Deep Analytics LLC            Topic: AF18BT009

    With recent programs that enable the airborne launch and recovery of UAVs, there are opportunities to provide aerial threat assessment in difficult to deploy areas. A valuable enhancement to the airborne-deployed UAV system are sensors that detect invisible threats such as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) weapons. The Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload, proposed by ...

  7. Hardware-in-the-loop test bed for magnetic field navigation

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc            Topic: AF19AT018

    Arrow Tech Associates (ATA) has teamed with Penn State Applied Research Lab (PSU ARL) in this Phase 1 STTR effort to combine our experience relating to magnetometers, GNC and HWILs to create a reliable and repeatable HWIL test bed which emulates a magnetic environment. This will allow testing of the feasibility of utilizing publicly available databases of the Earth’s magnetic field to augme ...

  8. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    The overall objective of this SBIR project is to adapt Benchmark Space Systems’ commercially-available chemical propulsion system, the B125, for use in Air Force small satellite missions. During Phase I of the project, Benchmark Space personnel worked with customer/end-users from the AFRL SSP to identify the modifications required to adapt the B125 to meet current and future needs of the br ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
