  2. Ceramic Microthruster Clusters for Nano- and Microsatellites

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF081061

    In this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, a high throughput chemical micropropulsion system for nano- and microsatellites will be developed. The microthruster will use an all-ceramic construction to withstand the high temperatures associated with the high Isp, clean burning, high-energy-density, non-toxic liquid monopropellant. The developed high throughput propulsion system wil ...

  4. Advanced High Energy Density Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD08EP2

    The present lithium-ion battery technology needs further improvement with respect to specific energy (Wh/kg) and energy density (Wh/l) for military, aerospace, and transportation applications. The improvement in specific energy and energy density can be achieved by choosing (i) an electrochemical couple having high specific capacity of individual electrode materials and/or (ii) an electrochemical ...

  5. Expanding the Processing Capability of On-Line Propulsion Health Management (PHM)

    SBC: DSPCon            Topic: AF081055

    Propulsion Health Management (PHM) is viewed by the Air Force as a critical technology for improving aircraft system affordability via reduced maintenance costs, and improved platform survivability and availability . Ideally, PHM eliminates “surprises” in operations and maintenance. DSPCon proposes to develop a powerful, modular, expandable, open-standards addition of processing capability tha ...

  6. High voltage and high energy density Li-ion batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: OSD08EP2

    Safe, non-toxic, high voltage and high energy density Li-ion batteries, along with good power density are needed in a variety of military, space and commercial applications. The specific power and energy density of Li-ion batteries can be enhanced by utilizing cathode materials that have higher cycling voltage and specific capacity. We have identified a cathode material composition that can deliv ...

  7. Highly Efficient, Lightweight, High Temperature Blower for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP3

    Long-endurance unmanned vehicle (UV) and munition systems require lightweight, compact, and efficient power systems. Advanced fuel cells are promising technologies that can be used for both primary propulsion and auxiliary power units for these applications. A lightweight, high temperature, efficient cathode blower is a critical component to enable a compact SOFC power unit to achieve the high spe ...

  8. High-Temperature Blower Development for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) Applications

    SBC: Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP3

    This proposal outlines the design of a very low weight blower system that will provide cathode air for a small ( ~ 2 kW) Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) power system. This design (the HTCAB) will derive from a proven blower system that PADT has already developed (LCAB). The improved HTCAB blower system will offer the following advances: 50% more flow, a 10% improvement in efficiency, an 85% increas ...

  9. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  10. A Two Stage Data Fusion Strategy for False Alarm Mitigation in Propulsion Health Management (PHM) Systems

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: AF081054

    Scientific Monitoring, Inc. (SMI) proposes a novel two-stage comprehensive strategy for fault diagnosis for the purpose of reducing the occurrence of No Fault Found (NFF) events in Propulsion Health Management (PHM) activities. The strategy includes modeling and algorithmic elements that account for uncertainty at two distinct stages in the fault detection process: (a) anomaly detection, and (b) ...
