  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. 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 ...

  4. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend on charge carrier mobility in the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to ultimately improving >10% the efficiencies realized by typical organic solar cells, whether

  5. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic photovoltaic (OPV) solar cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend in turn on carrier mobility and the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to enabling the better OPV cells from leading OPV makers to reach >10% efficiencies, whether

  6. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detecctors are required to detect IEDs. These detectors are needed to save the lives of american soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will demon ...

  7. Rocket Engine Health Management System- Turbopump System

    SBC: TURBO SOLUTIONS ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF05201

    Turbo Solutions Engineering LLC is providing this proposal for a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, to develop a rocket engine health management (REHM) system. The proposed project is a follow-on to Turbo Solutions’ nearly completed Phase I SBIR entitled “Integrated Vehicle Health Management ‘Intelligent Engine’ Turbopump Concept,” (AFRL Contract FA9300-05-M-301 ...

  8. Sectional Permanent Magnet Generator and Power Electronics for Multi-Megawatt, Direct Drive Wind Turbines

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 29

    Wind power has the potential of supplying a significant percentage of the United States electrical demand at low cost. However, costs of transportation, erection, and repair must be reduced before these systems are competitive with current technology. The large size of multi megawatt turbine components makes transportation from manufacturing facilities to wind sites problematic. Once on site, t ...

  9. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...

  10. FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR HIGH-DATA-RATE NONDENIABLE COMMUNICATIONS

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: N/A

    MAINTAINING COMMAND-AND-CONTROL COMMUNICATIONS CONNECTIVITY CONTINUOUSLY THROUGH PRE-, TRANS-, AND POST-ATTACK PERIODS IS ESSENTIAL. COMMUNICATION LINKS FOR THIS APPLICATION SHOULD BE NONDENIABLE (BY NUCLEAR DETONATION) AND NONINTERRUPTABLE, AND SHOULD ALSO ALLOW COMMUNICATIONS WHILE IN MOTION AND HIGH DATA RATES. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES ARE ILL SUITED FOR USE IN THIS APPLIC ...
