  1. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  2. A Novel Nanomaterial-enabled Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Developments in micro/nano technologies are leading the way to a new fleet of micro air vehicle (MAV) airframes. However, the unavoidable and ultimately the mission-limiting issue for all of these new systems will be on-board power. The lightest-weight current lithium-polymer batteries don’t provide sufficient energy densities and impose a variety of operational limitations that are unacceptab ...

  3. Nanomaterial Technologies for Long-Life Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093065

    Lithium-ion batteries have become the industry standard for use as rechargeable secondary batteries in space vehicles. Although substantial advancements have made in this class of batteries of late, substantial limitations still exist in: energy and power densities, operational temperature limits, safety, and most importantly lifecycle and lifetime performance. To address this need, ADA Technolo ...

  4. Multi-Functional High Energy, High Power Lithium-Polymer Batteries for MAVs

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093098

    Micro air vehicles (MAV) are envisioned to play a substantial role in carrying out critical missions for the Nation’s future military force. However due to their small size, deficiencies in critical technologies may limit the operational performance of future MAVs. Arguably, on-board power may be the most mission-limiting issue facing future MAVs. To address this need, ADA Technologies, Inc. ...

  5. Improved Performance of Morphing Shape Memory Polymer Skins

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093127

    Morphing air vehicles are characterized by an ability to dramatically alter their airfoil characteristics to maintain optimal aerodynamic efficiency over a broad flight regime thereby broadening their mission profile over an equivalent fixed-wing vehicle. Essential to enabling these vehicles is a wing skin that is highly compliant in-plane for wing morphing while being highly stiff out-of-plane to ...

  6. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using an active heat sink (AHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) Easily scalabl ...

  7. Accelerated Learning for Cyber Insider Threat Reduction (XL-CITR)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: OSD08CR8

    Future U.S. Information Systems will be subject to increased attacks. These attacks will come from both internal and external threats. As reflected by the budgets for combating these threats, external cyber threats are assumed to be more likely. By comparison, internal threats to cyber networks from U.S. personnel receive little attention; yet, the consequences can be even more devastating. Al ...

  8. Parallel Operation of Compact, Efficient Turbogenerators for Robust Tactical Energy Independence

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: OSD10EP1

    The intent of this project is to explore the feasibility of using a parallel connection strategy similar to a utility solution for the operation of multiple high speed turbo-generators in the 10 to 50 kW range. It is desired to connect the high frequency, 3-phase outputs of multiple turbo-generators in parallel to produce a single high frequency bus of significantly higher power, up to 500 kW. Th ...

  9. SAA Targeted Advanced Radar Technology (START)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF093133

    Colorado Engineering Inc. (CEI), with its teammate, Ball Aerospace, proposes to leverage its collective expertise with phased array antenna design, advanced processing architectures, and radar signal processing algorithms to research, identify, and mature technologies that will improve the cost, size, weight, and power consumption of radar systems supporting Sense and Avoid (SAA) systems. This ef ...

  10. Low Cost Orbital Debris Capture Net and Solar Sail

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N093223

    Operational satellites are at risk from a growing threat of orbital debris generated by satellite explosions and collisions. There are currently 19,000 objects larger than 10 cm being currently tracked by the U.S. Space Surveillance Network and an estimated 500,000 particles between 1 and 10 cm in diameter. The risk of orbital debris is also self-propagating, as the recent collision of the Iridium ...
