  1. Laser Beacon for Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) and Combat Identification

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF093100

    The proposed multi-spectral IFF beacon will use 40 to 50 % effient high power laser diodes at 863, 1064, and 1550 nm wavelengths. Thermal emitters including diamond-like carbon thin films, photonic crystals, and quantum cascade lasers will be characterized and compared. Finally a model to predict the detection range of IFF beacons will be developed using proprietary emitter power and atmospheric ...

  2. Embedded Wire for Aircraft Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF093006

    The state of wiring in aging aircraft has been an increasing concern in recent years. Wire deteriorates with age and environmental conditions, particularly inflight vibration, which causes wires chafing. Wire failures can result in aircraft downtime, higher maintenance costs, mission failure, and even an aircraft crash. Composite materials may present a unique solution to the aging wire problem. ...

  4. Elimination of Microbial Contamination in Kerosene and Kerosene Based Aviation Fuels by Filtration Approach Utilizing Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes Med

    SBC: Seldon Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093185

    Microbial contamination in kerosene based aviation fuels has been a problem for the USAF since the 1960’s. Antimicrobial effect of earlier used fuel system icing inhibitor (FSII) became an initial solution to this problem, but later, such fuel additives were banned due to their extreme toxicity towards humans. Newer FSIIs, being more eco-friendly, do not possess the antimicrobial properties of ...

  5. DTACSS: Decision-Theoretic Automation for Coordinated Space Surveillance

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF093058

    While the United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies, our satellite assets are increasingly vulnerable to attacks and collisions with debris or other satellites. Current space surveillance systems are stovepiped and unresponsive; when possible collisions ("orbital conjunctions") are detected in advance, additional tracking data can only be acquired through complex human inte ...

  6. HyDRA: Highly Distributed Real-time Agents

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF093055

    SIFT, LLC, proposes to develop HyDRA, a network-centric, mixed-initiative, distributed planning system that will provide real-time response to complex situations evolving at different time scales and in different locations. SIFT will draw on experience with three key technologies: partial centralization, the Cooperative Intelligent Real-time Control Architecture (CIRCA), and Playbook(TM)-based mi ...

  7. Accelerated Reconnaissance Window Development

    SBC: THIRD WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF093129

    Grinding is used to satisfy figure and finish requirements for optics, removing successive layers of material to ensure alleviation of any damage created from the prior operation. Consequently, fabrication times are slow and expensive. The optics manufacturing industry currently lacks physics-based models needed to understand the impact of process and material variables on final part quality and ...

  8. Recovery Act- Unique Alcohol Extraction Process Based on Jojoba Oil

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: 10b

    The extraction of dilute concentrations of alcohol from water is one that is widespread through industry and environmental clean-up. It is presently separated by distillation processes, where possible, a technique which is energy intensive and has impacts on product cost and the environment through the use of fossil fuels to supply the energy needed. This problem has a enormous impact on the cost ...

  9. Recovery Act- Novel Carbon Nanotube Containing Media for Water Separation from B-100 Biodiesel

    SBC: Seldon Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10c

    Biodiesel is our next generation eco

  10. Ultra-thin AlN/GaN Heterostructures for Robust, Radiation-hard Electronics

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 44c

    Exposure to high energy radiation can produces disruptive transient behavior as well as long-term changes in electronic device and circuit characteristics. Depending on both the material properties and radiation characteristics, these effects may result in parametric degradation or functional failure in electronic circuits. Future DOE nuclear research and high-energy physics projects, such as th ...
