  1. Application of a Uniform Coating Thickness for Complex or Irregular Surfaces

    SBC: CONTEXT FUSION, LLC            Topic: N06063

    Current coating methodologies for geometrically irregular surfaces have become increasing complex and expensive to apply. Yet surfaces exposed to corrosive environments can still suffer the risk of corrosion. While the Navy has invested in edge retentive coating systems, application procedures still require the application of multiple coats due to the challenges inherent in coating complex and ir ...

  2. Development of Hydrocarbon-Based Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs)

    SBC: Functional Coating Technology, LLC            Topic: AF06164

    We have recently demonstrated that high power densities can be achieved for SOFC using liquid hydrocarbon fuels via direct internal reforming. This approach can provide solutions for the highly power-dense applications required by Air Force (e.g. auxiliary power units for aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles) and many portable and transportation applications in commercial sector. Because the sta ...

  3. Simulation Tools for Strain Engineering, Manufacturing and Design of Novel Optical and Electronic Superlattice Materials and Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06075

    The overall objective of this Phase I proposal is to create a model based on molecular dynamics (MD) that can predict the specific Quantum Dot Superlattice (QDSL) heteroepitaxial structures that will grow, given various factors such as growth temperature, flux rate, and spacer thickness. AlGaN/GaN heterostructures have attracted a great deal of theoretical and experimental interest because of thei ...

  4. Type II Superlattices for LWIR Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A06122

    Long wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors are highly needed for night vision and threat warning applications. The InAs/GaSb Type II heterostructure system offers unique design flexibility for new innovative detectors. Type strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors have been demonstrated with cutoff wavelengths ranging from 3 to 32 microns. This technology has shown performance comparable to HgCd ...

  5. CMAS mitigation for TBCs using a novel aluminum-phosphate based overlay coating

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N06032

    Applied Thin Films, Inc. proposes to use and an innovative aluminum phosphate solution based coating material to act as a sacrificial barrier layer to protect zirconia thermal barrier coatings from molten CMAS ingress and attack. The proposed coating material, known as Cerablak™, will ideally prevent any decrease in zirconia TBC lifetime expectancy and insulation efficiency due to CMAS infiltra ...

  6. Real Time Wireless Network for Avionics Applications

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N05142

    The US Navy has identified the need to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies that leverage existing and emerging commercial real-time wireless circuitry by upconversion of frequency to 60 GHz for short range, high security applications. This topic proposes to gain the advantages of emerging microwave commercial off-the-shelf technology by upconverting to 60 GHz (V-band) where atmospheri ...

  7. Potable Water Production Module

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N06135

    This proposal describes new technology for water purification based on heat pumps, and more specifically based on transcritical CO2 system. Heat pumps in general are excellent thermal transformation tools when both sides (warm and cold) are utilized. Energy efficiency can be extremely high when designed properly. Transcritical CO2 based systems offer even better opportunity due to characteristic ...

  8. Self-Healing Adhesives and Composites for Aerospace Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T025

    Self-healing composites and adhesives would alleviate longstanding problems in aerospace structures associated with multiple types of damage mechanisms such as mechanical/thermal fatigue, microcracking, and debonding. A composite cryogenic tank based on self-healing technology would prevent leakage by sealing microcracks throughout the lifetime of the tank and enable the use of composites in this ...

  9. New Material Compositions that Expand the Operating Domain of Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: H. C. Materials Corporation            Topic: N06T034

    At the present time, large-sized PMN-PT piezoelectric crystals, 3" diameter by 8" long, of high quality, can be grown directly from the melt and are commercially available. The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of expanding the operating domain of the PMN-PT based piezoelectric crystals by chemical doping and compositional refinements. Although the piezoelectric properti ...

  10. Micro-factory for Miniaturization, Portability and Remote Production

    SBC: MICROLUTION, INC.            Topic: N06T030

    The authors developed an automated microfactory prototype at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005 as part of a grant from the US Army Aviation and Missile Command. The prototype provided proof-of-concept for important microfactory technologies, and revealed gaps between the state-of-the-art and the Navy microfactory requirements listed in the solicitation. The proposed innovati ...
