  1. Adaptive Thermal Control Coating for Radiation Hardening of Spacecraft

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: AF093071

    The purpose of this SBIR phase I proposal is to design and demonstrate the feasibility of processing the adaptive thermal control material system (TCMS) that is radiation hardened. Through this proposal the engineered TCMS for the space craft protection is envisioned for the needed survivability and better protection of the space assets and the investments. The goal here is to develop an adaptive ...

  2. Solid Propellant Shock to Detonation Modeling and Formulation

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF08T003

    Determining the hazard classification of new propellant formulations is important for transportation safety and storage concerns. To avoid costly grain redesign and additional testing, a model that adequately predicts the shock sensitivity, including the outcome of the Naval Ordnance Laboratory Large Scale Gap Test, of modern solid propellants is required. The goals of this proposal are to de ...

  3. Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic Compatibility

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF09BT13

    Aircraft often are subject to externally generated electromagnetic interference (EMI) comprising high intensity radiated fields of strengths in excess of 1000 V/m generated by radars operating at 400 MHz and above. They also are subject to generally less intense fields produced by internal sources such as handheld radios. This EMI may adversely affect the aircraft’s communication, navigation, an ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Ultra-Low Noise Amplifier for Enhanced Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF083154

    The goal of this proposed project is to design, fabricate and characterize ultra-low-noise amplifiers for radar and signal intelligence applications. High frequency, wide bandwidth signals have several advantages in applications ranging from high data rate communications to high resolution radar. However, the biggest challenge to realizing these systems is limitations to the amplifier noise perfor ...

  6. Autonomous Vehicle Awareness Sensors

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: AF083194

    The program will report on a novel design approach for a dual mode satellite sensor to be mounted on a Geo-COPS satellite. A mission and sensor trade study will rely heavily on available simulation programs to predict performance outcome. The satellite would be located strategically in Geo-orbit to monitor the location and activity of all satellites in the zone of interest. Proposed is very high ...

  7. Shock Initiation of Energetic Materials Due to Mesoscale Features

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD09W01

    IllinoisRocstar LLC envisions the initial product of this effort to be a shock-to-detonation module (Rocpack-RocSDT) for inclusion in our insensitive munitions simulation code, IMSIM. IMSIM is a first-generation software product for the simulation of energetic material behavior in insensitive munitions-related studies and applications. The overall IMSIM process initiates with nondestructive charac ...

  10. Solid Rocket Motor Propellant Characterization and Material Reconstruction Using High Resolution Tomography

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD08PR2

    We propose to enhance and commercialize software tools for imaging and three-dimensional reconstruction of as-produced propellant grains from micro-tomographic volume-imaging techniques; computational tools that model the morphology of the propellant grain, including first-, second-, and third-order statistics; and computational tools that determine local material properties, including elastic mod ...
