  2. 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 ...

  3. Highly Linear E-Band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF093147

    The Air Force has identified a need for an advanced traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) that supports future generations of broad bandwidth, efficient and linear military satellite communication. To address this need, InnoSys proposes to develop innovative solutions for advanced TWTAs that operate from 81 to 86 GHz, deliver high efficiency greater than 30% with a relatively high saturated gain g ...

  4. Innovative Fabrication of High Temperature CO2 Selective Membrane for Hydrogen Generation via Membrane-Enhanced Water-Gas Shift Reaction

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    Efficient production of hydrogen from abundant fossil fuel reserves along with effective CO2 sequestration processes can lead to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and elimination of dependence on foreign oil. Currently, hydrogen production via water-gas shift (WGS) reaction of either a coal-derived syngas or natural gas steam reformate, coupled with pressure-swing adsorption is the most econom ...

  5. SYREN- Acoustic Resonance Igniter

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF081066

    ORBITEC proposes to continue the development of the SYREN Igniter to meet the performance goals of the next generation of liquid hydrocarbon boost and upper stage rocket engines. This effort will advance the technical readiness level of an innovative family of igniters for rocket combustion devices. These igniters will exceed current reliability standards, reduce ignition system overhead, and pr ...

  6. Off-Grid Solid-State Agricultural Lighting

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: 09c

    This project addresses the potential to move power requirements for ornamental crop lighting systems off the grid and to alternative energy sources such as solar photovoltaic. Photoperiod lighting is currently used in an estimated 25% of greenhouse ornamental production operations and floriculture operations in the field to control flowering and improve product quality. Results from the project co ...

  7. Development of Multi-Frequency Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF08T020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. We will develop a hybrid diffusion-Monte Carlo (HDMC) model that efficiently transpor ...

  8. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    The objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling an a ...

  9. An Efficient Methodology for Chemical Reactions of JP-8

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: AF093162

    The proposed project will leverage REI’s experience creating and applying reduced chemical kinetic mechanisms for JP-8 with source-term speed-up techniques such as in-situ adaptive tabulation (ISAT) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to develop techniques for speeding evaluation of JP-8 kinetics in gas turbine combustor simulations. During Phase I, pre-trained ANN models using reduced chemica ...

  10. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...
