  2. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF03T016

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that the state-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do n ...

  3. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  4. MINIATURIZED ELECTRO/MAGNETO-OPTIC SENSORS FOR THE DETECTION AND MEASUREMENT OF BROADBAND RF PULSES

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: AF04T025

    An innovative, high-speed electromagnetic-wave-detection system based on broadband, non-intrusive, miniaturized electro-optic (EO), magneto-optic (MO), and electro-optic voltage (EOV) sensors will be developed for evaluating the effects that pulsed electromagnetic (EM) waves have on specific components of electronic systems. The suite of optically-interrogated sensors, which may be positioned with ...

  5. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: AVAcore Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T015

    Exposure to light at critical phases of the circadian cycle is the main stimulus that entrains circadian rhythms.  Previous work has concluded that exposure of humans to bright light for an hour or more at the right phase of the circadian cycle produces significant phase shifts of circadian rhythms speeding recovery from jet-lag, and optimizing cognitive functionality and restorative sleep.  Our ...

  6. NanoFET- Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster for Micro-Satellites and Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF07T036

    The Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster (NanoFET) is being developed as a high thrust-to-power, highly compact, variable specific impulse electric propulsion device especially for micro-satellite applications. NanoFET provides thrust by extracting and charging nanometer to micron-sized conducting particles (e.g., spheres) fed from a dry reservoir and accelerating them electrostatically. This te ...

  7. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF07T025

    We propose to develop a novel hybrid circuit approach combining CMOS and two terminal crosspoint nanodevices with a novel interface consisting of an array of pins with nanometer scale tips. Our CMOL approach will allow the fabrication of ultra-dense integrated circuits (up to 10^12 active devices per cm2) for advanced computing (up to 10^20 operation per cm2 per second), information storage and se ...

  8. Optically Driven High Power Time Domain Terahertz Source

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: AF07T035

    In phase II we will develop a prototype high power time domain terahertz (TD-THz) pulse source with a 1 milliwatt average output based on our Phase I approach.    This source will be compatible with conventional time domain terahertz spectroscopy and imaging instrumentation, but extend the output power greater than a 1000 times the 1 microwatt typically generated by conventional systems.  TD-T ...

  9. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    ABSTRACT: This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis modeling method for advanced composite structures, including the analysis of selected structural joints utilizing a statistically based micromechanics model embedded in a 3D non-linear finite element code. The method accounts for the interaction between out-of-plane failure and ...

  10. Next-generation magnetic flowmeter for characterizing the dynamic behavior of novel energetic materials for space propulsion

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF08T010

    The objective of this program is to build upon many decades of experience with magnetic flowmeters to develop a next-generation system to measure the burning surface admittance of high-energy-density solid propellants at high frequencies and pressures. Using the results of research on solid propellant rocket motor combustion instability from the past fifty years, one can directly measure the ac ...
