  1. THREE-DIMENSIONAL HIGH-SPEED TOMOGRAPHY OF DENSE SPRAYS USING BALLISTIC IMAGING

    SBC: Taras Research, LLC            Topic: AF112167

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this research effort is to develop a next-generation time-gated ballistic imaging (BI) system for three-dimensional characterization of liquid breakup within dense fuel sprays. The temporal resolution will be varied using nonlinear time gating and pulse shaping techniques to optimize image contrast for a range of optical densities in sprays for propulsion appli ...

  2. A High Performance 90nm"Schottky"CMOS Process for Mitigation of Parasitic Bipolar Effects and Dramatically Reduced Bit Upset Rates

    SBC: Avolare 2, LLC            Topic: AF103087

    ABSTRACT: Avolare2 proposes to establish a 90nm metal source/drain"Schottky"CMOS process at Cypress Semiconductor"s high volume manufacturing facility in Bloomington, MN. Schottky CMOS will have a profound impact on the performance and reliability of most of the integrated circuits (ICs) providing critical functionality for electronic systems operating in high radiation environments. The Schottk ...

  3. New Radar Exploitation Methods for Combat Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF131130

    ABSTRACT: Current automatic target recognition (ATR) training processes require expensive data collections or extensive, high fidelity target modeling and validation whose costs and lead times will limit the ongoing sustainability of ATR target databases. Radar based systems for combat identification (CID) suffer from sustainability issues due to the extreme complexity of the target databases an ...

  4. Advanced Corrosion Resistant Coating Systems for Preservation of Aerospace and Infrastructure Systems Used in Military and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Porter Scientific, Inc.            Topic: AF112217

    ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to prevent the intrusion of moisture associated waterborne ions and the diffusion of oxygen to the metallic ...

  5. High Thermal Conductivity Gaskets Based On Carbon Nanotube Vertical Arrays

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: Through the Phase II program, NTL will finalize the materials development and demonstrate the ability of a TIM material based on carbon nanotube vertical arrays to meet general requirements for space applications. In addition we will define and initiate tests required for a specific Air Force application. NTL will not only demonstrate a heat transfer coefficient greater than 45,000 W/ ...

  6. High Range Resolution (HRR)-Surrogate SAR Target Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112137

    ABSTRACT: This program will develop salient feature analysis and saliency cueing capabilities for SAR-based exploitation and demonstrate this technology with operationally relevant data and classifiers. This saliency technology will immediately enable the development of exploitable, robust, compact feature databases for sustainable radar CID. This new SAR-based saliency capability will compleme ...

  7. Low Cost High Reproducibility Method for GaN Seed Production

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Although several critical energy saving technologies under development today require Gallium Nitride (GaN) based semiconductor devices, a source of high quality and inexpensive GaN wafers does not yet exist. This lack of GaN wafers adds complexity to GaN device production and makes development of new GaN device based products slower and more costly. Lowest cost, highest volume, wafer production a ...

  8. FLAAT Growth Technology for Low Cost Thick High Quality GaN on Thin 8 Sapphir

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 11b

    Gallium Nitrides (GaN) device market size is second only to silicon and is projected to be $50-100 billion in size as markets mature for GaN power devices, solid state lighting, and hundreds of other new applications. Even with this remarkable forecast, GaN epitaxy is still produced primarily on foreign (non-GaN) substrates, typically sapphire, silicon, or silicon carbide, which cause billions of ...

  9. PRISMS- Profile Resolving In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Many contaminated DOE sites are located in arid regions where depth to groundwater is significant and/or contaminants were discharged into a vadose zone through which transport to the groundwater table is dominated by unsteady, unsaturated groundwater flow. The absence of an effective means to monitor vadose zone moisture content in profile has been a persistent impediment to developing and calibr ...

  10. Variable Inlet Bypass for Efficient Wide Flow Range Turbocharger Compressor

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 06c

    Increased use of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) combined with engine downsizing has pushed automotive turbocharger compressor operation towards and often beyond its efficient and stable operating boundaries. Much of the drive cycle is spent operating the compressor at low flow rates and low pressure ratios, near the compressor surge line, in an area which is usually of low efficiency. Our prelimi ...
