  1. Hybrid Propulsion Systems for Undersea Weapons

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N05T024

    This STTR focuses on design of a hybrid propulsion system for a heavyweight torpedo. The hybrid torpedo propulsion system is designed to allow effective operation over a large turndown ratio, improving the weapon’s suitability for a broad range of missions including littoral water duty. The improved flexibility of hybrid torpedoes should improve the Pk and Pck (probability of kill, probability ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to extend a steganogrpahic architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The initial arc ...

  4. TEMBO® Foam for Morphing Wing Applications

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06T013

    In recent years there has been significant interest in developing morphing air vehicles that would be able to fly efficiently over a wide range of flight regimes to meet new mission profiles. Though morphing-wing concepts have been around for many years, it has been determined that conventional designs such as swing wings are not adequate for providing the desired improvements. Many of the new m ...

  5. Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06T017

    In the proposed Phase I program, Composite Technology Development Inc. (CTD) will work with Raytheon Missile Systems to define material requirements for morphing aircraft skins, and will perform material evaluations to demonstrate the feasibility of adaptive materials with dynamically variable stiffness. Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC) will provide mechanical characterization support.

  6. Close Coupling of Excited Oxygen with Iodine Injection in COIL Lasers

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: MDA06T005

    Directed Energy Solutions (DES) and the University of Denver Research Institute propose a program aimed at revolutionary advancement of the current technology used in powering high-energy chemical iodine lasers. Our approach is to use a unique generator with a high specific surface area to produce high yields of singlet delta oxygen and transport the flow quickly to the laser nozzle. The laser no ...

  7. A Non-Invasive Method to Functionalize Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N06T031

    This Phase I STTR project will further develop our technique for uniformly dispersing single walled carbon nanotubes into polymeric resins. This project will specifically aim to provide them with a mechanism for anchoring themselves to an epoxy matrix during curing in such a way that they are able to accept and absorb an applied load. The successful development of this technology will result in n ...

  8. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: A06T004

    This proposed STTR Phase I program addresses design, development, fabrication and testing of a safe, convenient and economical catalytic microreactor that is capable of generating vaporous hydrogen peroxide (VHP) on demand by direct synthesis of hydrogen and oxygen that could be generated by electrolysis of water aboard a portable hydrogen peroxide generator. Phase I will consist of two major and ...

  9. Gaseous, Liquid and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: A06T001

    This proposed STTR Phase I program addresses elucidation of the underlying physics and chemistry associated with ignition delay in hypergolic propulsion systems. More specifically it addresses if the differences observed in ignition delay for liquid and gelled hypergolic propulsion systems are due to mainly physical and/or chemical effects. Proposed mechanisms will be developed for the gas/gas, l ...

  10. An Array of Silicon-based Direction-Sensitive Detectors for Imaging the Gamma-Ray Background

    SBC: GALT LLC            Topic: A06T016

    A gamma ray camera, based principally on position-sensitive silicon detectors, is proposed as a means to imaging the radioactive materials in the background. In order to maximize its utility, the background imager should be able to sense environmental alterations out to reasonable ranges, be of relatively low cost so that it can be widely deployed, and finally, it should have a large active volum ...
