  1. Novel Materials for In-Situ Ablation Sensing

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: In order to achieve precise guidance, navigation and control in re-entry vehicles, aerodynamic shape must be accurately known throughout the flight trajectory. For this Phase I program an ultrasonic-based technique for real-time, non-intrusive (5 KHz) measurement of recession during ablation will be developed. The system combines the elements of ultrasonic thickness gauging technology w ...

  2. Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 and Water to Syngas

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The objective of the proposed work is to extend the process so that we can also produce syngas. BENEFIT: I ...

  3. Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physi ...

  4. Novel protocol for Quantum Key Distribution

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF09BT21

    ABSTRACT: Quantum key distribution (QKD) is an exciting application of quantum theory to the important real-world problem of secure communication. Specifically, QKD may allow for provably secure key distribution. These random keys can then be used either in a one-time pad style encryption system (for absolute security at low rates) or a standard encryption system (for high security at high rates) ...

  5. High Efficiency Flexible Photovoltaic Blankets

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: MicroLink will develop a high-efficiency, flexible photovoltaic blanket, which will reduce solider borne weight by reducing battery requirements. The photovoltaic blanket will combine ultra-thin, flexible high-efficiency, GaAs-based multi-junction solar cells, made using MicroLink"s proprietary epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process, with a novel packaging approach that involves laminating a ...

  7. High-Power High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters and military communication systems simila ...
