  1. Bulk Nitride, Exchange-Coupled Magnet

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: A06T003

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using an innovative deposition process for making Sm2Fe17Nx/á-Fe16N2 magnetic materials in bulk quantities. In addition, exchange-coupled nanostructured composites of these materials will be produced. The advantage of this process is that it allows precise control over the deposition ions so that the morphology of the materials ca ...

  3. Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell-Power Generator (PJF-Gen)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N05T016

    Altex Technologies Corporation, a small business, and Pennsylvania State University, a research institution, have teamed up to develop the innovative Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell Power Generator (PJF-Gen). The 500-1000 watts system will be lightweight, the size of a lunch box, will reliably operate on JP-8 and start fast, thereby meeting all Navy requirements. This is achieved by using ...

  4. Conventional Training Versus Game-Based Training

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N06T006

    Game-based training (GBT) has been touted as a promising medium for achieving improved training objective performance outcomes and increasing learner motivation, particularly in military training environments. However, there is little empirical research upon which to make informed decisions about when, where, or even if applying particular game elements to training is effective. The primary object ...

  5. Physics Based Modeling of Hydrometeor/ Aerodynamic Interactions due to Ballistic Missiles Radomes

    SBC: AQUILA LABORATORY, LLC            Topic: MDA06T013

    Hydrometeor impact/erosion qualification evaluations of aerospace vehicle components have to relate testing carried out in ground test facilities to what the components experience in the flight environment. The size distribution and condition of the hydrometeors that impact the surface of a radome can differ substantially from what they are in the natural environment before encountering a missile ...

  6. MEMS Adaptive Optics Enhancement of Quantum Entanglement for Secure Communication through the Atmosphere

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF06T030

    The proposed effort develops the understanding required to assess the utility of using a MEMS device to prepare the required optical fields that not only facilitate quantum entanglement, but also maintain a sufficient level of quantum entanglement for propagation through an aberrating medium such as the atmosphere. In addition a conceptual design of an experiment that is appropriate to further th ...

  7. Military Specific Advancements in Prosthetic Limb Design and Performance

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: OSD05T005

    The overall goal of this research work is to design, build and evaluate high performance above-knee prosthetic systems suitable for military specific maneuvers. Existing above-knee prostheses are limited by the lack of compact energy sources, actuators, power regeneration methods, and control methods for active knee actuation. This proposal seeks to improve the dynamic performance of above-the-k ...

  8. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  9. Novel, High Power, W-band, Meander Line TWT

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T022

    This proposal contains innovative, traveling-wave tube (TWT) designs compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for millimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on novel planar interaction circuits; long life, high current density electron guns; and compact magnet configurations. The ultimate goal will be high power, efficient, ...

  10. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    CCR will team with SRI International to develop high current field emission arrays for high power RF source. The Phase I program will utilize a combination of analytical calculation, computer simulation, and experimental verification to study various approaches and determine their effectiveness in achieving the program goals. The technical objective of the Phase I program will be to develop field ...
