  1. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Innovative Design & Research Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    The XS-Air engine should provide the highest power density with both diesel and gasoline piston engines. This would be especially true in smaller engines in where turbos or blowers are impractical. The XS-Air engine can solve the aviation industry problem of the potential phasing out Av-gas. The spark ignition XS-Air engine should be able to burn pump gas and still generate extreme power densities ...

  2. Design and Optimization of Radar Systems to Assist Rotorcraft Piloting in Adverse Environments

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08141

    Understanding the installed performance of antennas and optimizing their placement on platforms is critical to achieving the expected operational performance of the RF systems they support. Installing antennas on aircraft degrades their performance relative to freestanding conditions in terms of field-of-view, raised sidelobes, introduction of multipath delayed signals, radome-induced beam shiftin ...

  3. High-Speed Electronically Tunable Multi Fiber-Optic Wavelength Filter based on Ultra-High-Resolution Super-Compact Grating on Silicon-Photonic Platfor

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: N12AT005

    The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for a high-speed electronically tunable channel filter, based on monolithically integrated ultra-high-resolution super-compact grating (UHR-SCG) technology that has been developed in OptoNet. The grating will be realized on Silicon-Photonic Electronic-Photonic Integrated (EPIC) Platform that ...

  4. Affordable CMAS-Resistant Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N12AT019

    A notable failure mechanism in thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) is the attack by calcium-magnesium-alumino silicate (CMAS) deposits resulting from the ingestion of siliceous minerals with the intake of air. Existing TBC systems such as yittria partially stabilized zirconia (YSZ) are highly susceptible to CMAS infiltration. In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in the field of comp ...

  5. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: H. C. Materials Corporation            Topic: N07076

    This SBIR phase-2.5 program is proposed to advance the state-of-the-art d36 shear mode projector which is the first known d36 underwater projector in the history of acoustic transduction devices. Phase II effort has shown significant advancements toward the d36 shear mode projectors in bandwidth and source level, especially its compact size. Ternary PIN-PMN-PT single crystals have been integrated ...

  6. Distributed Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Array

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N121032

    Infrared countermeasure and standoff chemical detection applications require a light source with high power output, good beam quality, and a wide tuning range. There are a limited number of viable mid-infrared (3-5 micron wavelength) solutions that can provide these features in a compact and power scalable architecture. In this proposal, a single chip solution is given which promises high power ou ...

  7. Computational design of erosion-resistant, damage-tolerant, galvanically compatible coatings for compressor airfoil leading edges in gas turbine engin

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N121039

    Turbo-shaft engines operating in desert environments are continuously exposed to erosive media, such as sand particles. This environment leads to compressor airfoil erosion resulting in significant performance loss of the engine, reducing fleet readiness and increasing maintenance costs. Additionally, high-energy particle impact can introduce significant foreign-object damage (FOD) leading to airf ...

  8. PICT, A Tool For Interactively Capturing and Managing Programmer's Intentions

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CP1

    The so-called"software crisis"is continuing unabated. It is all too common for a software project to create software that is hard to maintain, inefficient, bug-ridden, late, and over-budget. Software flaws resulting from this current state of affairs are no longer an inconvenience but are the largest source of software security vulnerabilities. Motivated by a desire to increase our ability to ...

  9. Comprehensive Magnetic Noise Suppression Methods for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: SKY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N121006

    To support the Navy's requirements for low-noise magnetic sensing from small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), we present effective methods for suppressing platform and external interferences. We propose to develop a comprehensive magnetic compensation system that heavily leverages a number of innovations, experience, and on-going work by our team. Our approach combines thorough characterizati ...

  10. Computational Design and Development of Advanced Stainless Steel for Aircraft Engine and Lift Fan Gearbox Bearings

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N121022

    High-performance, stainless bearing steel is needed to achieve long life and efficient operation of aerospace drive system turbine machinery operating in a corrosive environment. Available aerospace gear alloys such as Pyrowear 53, 9310, and Ferrium C64 are not corrosion resistant. Other options may also provide some level of corrosion resistance, such as in Pyrowear 675, but, ultimately, corrosio ...
