  1. A Novel Long-Life Battery Power Supply

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: AF103065

    ABSTRACT: Highly reliable power supply technologies are needed for future arming and fuzing system designs. These power supplies should be able to operate after a long dormant period of up to twenty years. A novel battery power supply is proposed for this purpose. The proposed battery utilizes a solid state electrolyte which would have indefinite shelf life. High peak specific power will be p ...

  3. Deployable Articulating Radiator Thermal Control for ORS Satellites

    SBC: Thermal Management Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF103107

    Thermal control systems are one of the large hurdles in the development of rapidly deployed spacecraft. The solicitation discusses the goal of achieving a 6-day mission capability from initial request. This ambitious task will require a thermal management system that is flexible, modular and is rapidly assembled with high reliability. ORS requires the thermal control system to handle a range of ...

  4. Non-GPS Dependent Method for Accurate UAS Navigation and Orientation Determination

    SBC: IMSAR LLC            Topic: AF103130

    ImSAR and BYU propose to use SAR/STAP/MIMO techniques to provide continous navigation in a GPS denied environment for UAS. The team has expertise in precision location of UAVs targets using a variety of methods inlcuding radar. BENEFIT: Commercial aviation and UAS missions that have become dependant on GPS navigation solutions will have an alternative during GPS outage or in jammed situations.

  8. 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

    ABSTRACT: 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 prope ...

  9. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: LiveWire Test Labs, Inc.            Topic: AF083113

    ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of existing wiring problems or pending failures is critic ...
