  1. Advanced Tracking Techniques for FOPEN GMTI Radars

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The utility of continuously tracking vehicles in a battlefield has been demonstrated during the Gulf War and other recent conflicts. However, the ability to achieve reliable continuous tracking in many environments will require the use of FOPEN radar andefficient use of sensor resources. In this effort we extend current research to include heterogeneous terrain and apply this model to simulations. ...

  2. Real Tme Intelligent Coaching for Command and Control

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTACT is an embedded tool to reduce operator workload un ccomples, information-rich, multi-task operational envbironments as well as an embedded coach for simulation based training. The coach is intended to ensure that a student is able to completesimulated mission task correctly, even when unsupervised during extracurtricular practice sessions.

  3. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Undersea sensors require means of transporting data to an end-user. Acoustic modem networks are being developed for this purpose, but they are limited by battery power, network priorities, and requirements for clandestine operations. We propose a systemsapproach to reducing the impact on the network of moving large volumes of data, using both low rate and high rate acoustic telemetry, combined w ...

  4. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  5. Corrosion Prevention Coatings

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per ye ...

  6. Organic Solar Cells Using Star Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new class of organic photovoltaics is proposed based on star conducting polymers. These materials will provide superior hole and/or electron transfer properties that determine the ultimate efficiency of the devices. The star polymer architecture employslinear conjugated arms radiating from a centrosymmetric core, and therfore, unlike the linear arms alone, facilitate carrier transport in three d ...

  7. Biomimetic Inspired Fibers, Materials, and Properties

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The complex biological processing and spinning operations used by the silkworm and spider to create silk fibers lead to a morphology that yields exceptionally high combinations of strength, stiffness, and extensibility. In this proposed STTR effort,Foster-Miller will join with Professor David Kaplan and the Biotechnology Center at Tufts University in an effort to produce films from silk that pos ...

  8. High-Damping Composite Materials for Advanced Aerospace Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is an advanced composite material that provides a high degree of damping with little sacrifice of stiffness or strength. By integrating the functions of load-bearing and vibration suppression, this high-dampingcomposite material (HDCM) will enable the elimination of parasitic structural components. This simplification will improve the reliability of stru ...

  9. Growth of AlN Crystals

    SBC: HEXATECH            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of growing centimeter-size aluminum nitride (AlN) crystals by subliming polycrystalline AlN in nitrogen atmosphere, and to demonstrate single crystalline quality meeting or exceeding thestandards of commercially available SiC wafers. The growth process, which utilizes high temperature, subatmospheric pressure and a steep temperature ...

  10. Reduced Flammability Vinyl Ester Resin Containing no Halogens for Use in Large Composite Ship Surface Structures via Nanocomposite Technology


    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a halogen free nanocomposite vinyl ester system that will provide low flammability composites. The nanocomposite system proposed will be based on commercially available vinyl ester resinsand thus should not result in a significant increase to raw material costs. Layered silicate based nanocomposites are a relatively new class of ...
