  1. 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 ...

  2. Optimized Process for Ultrasonic Consolidation of Metallic Composites

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: A12aT004

    The overall objective of the proposed effort is to develop an improved ultrasonic consolidation process for metal matrix composites (MMCs). This will be done through the development and validation of multiscale models of the bonding process and the laminated structures produced. These models will facilitate the optimization of the in-coming material, the structural performance of the processed m ...

  3. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: Troxler Electronic Laboratories            Topic: A12aT013

    Currently nuclear-based gauges are the most widely used equipment in the construction industry to measure moisture and density of pavement materials. Such measurements are very accurate, rapid, and non-destructive. Attempts to replace these nuclear methods by non-nuclear methods have shown strong limitations. For this project, we propose to integrate nuclear and seismic technologies to measure t ...

  4. High Performance, Cost Effective, Planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) Gas Sensors on InAs and InN

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    We plan to implement a planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) gas sensor on both InAs and InN platforms for the ppt-ppm detection of NOx and H2O. Kyma Technologies and Duke University will leverage Duke"s leading MOCSER based NOx sensor technology which uses surface functionalization of InAs with hemin (chloroprotoporphyrin IX iron(III)) to create a strong affinity for NOx. ...

  6. Auxetic Fabric Technology Development for Military Protective Clothing

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N12AT012

    The United States Navy has identified the need to investigate the use of auxetic fabric for military personnel protective clothing including jackets, shirts, pants, helmets, boots, gloves, and even body armor. Auxetic fabric technology has a unique feature in that it exhibits a negative Poisson"s ratio effect when subjected to an axial load. Auxetic fabric consists of an elastomeric core yarn, whi ...

  7. Producibility of Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Materials

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09T001

    The overall objective of this program is to improve the producibility of HVPE GaN through the use of in-situ monitoring during the growth process. Various in-situ monitoring devices will be used: a UV absorption technique to monitor the GaCl concentration above the growing GaN wafer; a commercial BandiT system capable of measuring optical emission from the growing wafer in order to measure the su ...

  8. High-Quality AlGaN Epitaxial Films on GaN and AlN Substrates

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: A12aT019

    The objective of proposed work is to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining AlGaN films of any composition with dislocation densities below 1x106 cm-2 on native nitride substrates either by sustaining a pseudomorphic state or by reducing the number of threading dislocations by specific stress relieving schemes at the interfaces or within the thickness of the layers.

  9. Development of Biomaterial Scaffolds for Use in Regenerating Muscle Tissue

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD11H12

    Injuries to soft tissues in extremities represent a high percentage of battlefield wounds in recent conflicts. Therapies for restoring function to injured muscle are needed for Wounded Warriors suffering from debilitating and sometimes disfiguring musculoskeletal injuries. Regenerative medicine holds promises of new treatment strategies, yet there remains significant need to develop better platfo ...

  10. Metal Matrix Composite DACS Components

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA11014

    Touchstone proposes an innovative solution to the composite overwrapped helium tank that will lower the cost and reduce the weight. The current configuration consists of storage tank for the fuel, the oxidizer, and a gas that is used to pressurize the fuel and oxidizer. The gas tank design incorporates a polymer composite that is wound over a titanium liner. The polymer composite provides the s ...
