  1. Particulate Composite Mixing Processes

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT22

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems proposes to develop a novel computational model for complex particulate composite mixing processes and the resultant microstructures in high shear environments. Control of mixing of granular and particulate composites (e.g., particles in a polymer matrix) to achieve homogeneous mixtures is essential in many important functional material systems and applications, including ...

  2. Novel Sacrificial Fibers for Microvascular Composites with Embedded Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Aurora will demonstrate on our automated fiber placement (AFP) machine that we are able to lay up composite panels that contain sacrificial fibers that can be thermally decomposed to create a microvascular network of small cavities that allow the panel to act as a heat exchanger. The AFP machine is capable of producing composite parts from mold tools as large as 9"high by 18"wide by 56 ...

  6. GUARD: General Utility for Assessing Risk of Disclosure

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT14

    ABSTRACT: Information is a national asset that must be protected. To make effective use of this asset, information sharing is critical between government agencies, with foreign government partners, and with the private sector. At the same time, in practice, balancing information sharing and information protection can be difficult. Tools are needed to address many challenges, including managing ...

  7. High specific power and cost effective solar array for spacecraft, lighter than air vehicles, and UAVs

    SBC: VectorSum Inc            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Space solar power systems range in size from the International Space Station with 8 solar arrays producing 84,000 watts all the way down to body-mounted single wafers on individual cubesats. The current state-of-the-art relies on multi-junction gallium arsenide or inverted metamorphic cells affixed to rigid structural panels. The need for a low-mass, high energy output solar array for ...

  8. Development of light-weight, low-cost and high specific power organic solar modules with high radiation hardness

    SBC: SOLARMER ENERGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Solar arrays play a key role in the operation of spacecrafts and unmanned aerial vehicles. Traditionally, inorganic semiconductor based solar arrays have been used for space applications because of their highest efficiencies. However, these solar arrays have several major limitations like extremely high cost, low specific power and large stowage volume. Organic photovoltaic (OPV) module ...

  9. Embedded Self-repairing Antenna Composite (ESAC)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: A13AT012

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop self-healing embedded communication antennas to be used in transparent armori.e., ground vehicle windows. Embedded antennas are known to delaminate from their host structures after impact; this allows an empty space to form around the antenna and as a result detunes the antenna. A sandwich structure will be designed, fabricated, and tested whereby th ...
