  1. Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In Situ Studies

    SBC: Psylotech LLC            Topic: A09055

    Small scale mechanical testing is often a bottleneck in micro and nanocomposite materials development. The proposed Psylotech system is a miniature universal test system that accommodates rigid materials and soft materials, such as biological tissues and rubber in the form of uniaxially loaded samples. The Psylotech nano/micro/milli Test System (nTS) is the evolution and integration of systems dev ...

  2. High surface-area, mesoporous oxide adsorbent sampling system.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10aT018

    The overall goal of this Phase II project is to develop a prototype micro-fluidic sampling system that will lead to a field-deployable detection system capable of detecting low ppb levels of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and explosive precursors in water. The proposed work will capitalize on Phase I successes in which the feasibility of using an infrared-based micro-fluidic sampling system was d ...

  3. Fatigue Resistant Martensitic Steel for Rotorcraft Drive Train Components

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A10035

    In Phase I of this SBIR program, QuesTek successfully demonstrated a novel thermomechanical processing technique to enhance the bending fatigue resistance of Ferrium C64 steel. A systems-engineering approach was followed to identify key microstructure attributes (e.g., nonmetallic inclusions) that control the mean and minimum fatigue resistance of the aforementioned steel. Through carefully devise ...

  4. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid state devices that don"t require cryogenic cooling. Si- ...

  5. Passive Infrared Detection of Liquids on Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A11044

    Rapid detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) in the field can provide critical contamination avoidance and reconnaissance. CWAs pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external IR sources, and/or are time-consuming. EPIR proposes to meet this need through the development of a passive s ...

  6. Powder Fluidization Grenade (PFG) for Particulate Obscurant Dissemination

    SBC: HY-TEK MANUFACTURING CO., INC.            Topic: A11045

    The thrust of Hy-Tek Mfg. Co. Inc.'s PFG concept involves in-canister fluidization of dry PO powder using compressed gas possibly enhanced by mechanical vibration followed by dissemination of the suspended powder from the canister by means of gas entrainment via a venture tube, nozzle or other canister orifice. Suitable fluidization of PO powder will require replenishing a stable suspension o ...

  7. High Operating Temperature MWIR FPA Camera Based on M-Structure Type-II Superlattices

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A09083

    Current high-performance MWIR FPAs require cooling with a cryo-cooler to ~77 K, the cryo-cooler that limits the system lifetime. If the FPA operation temperature can be raised to>170 K without sacrificing performance, then lower power and longer lifetime MWIR cameras should be possible. Type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a camera oper ...

  8. Weapons System Flow Separation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A10149

    We propose a collaborative effort between IllinoisRocstar LLC and the University of Illinois to develop validated computional tools to assess flow separation in advanced weapon systems. The initial application of the simulation system will be an aft-end jet thruster in a supersonic regime. High-fidelity, unsteady, and three-dimensional simulations will be conducted using the proprietary framework ...

  9. Fabric with Variable Air Permeability for Use in Parachutes

    SBC: Wizbe Industries, Inc.            Topic: A10163

    Identification and Significance of the Problem or Opportunity. Current Military parachute canopies are constructed from cloth that has a fixed air permeability. The level of air permeability in a fabric significantly affects the opening speed of the parachute, filling time, opening shock and rate of descent. The air permeability of the fabric remains cannot be altered once the canopy is construc ...

  10. Lightweight, Flexible Ballistic Protection System for Arc Shaped Shelters

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: A09169

    This SBIR will look to optimize four factors: ballistic protection, flexibility, weight and cube, and cost . The proposed arc tent protection system is intended to mitigate damage from indirect fire, such as a mortar attack, IEDs, and small arms fire. A mortar detonation causes two major threats to a soft-walled shelter. The mortar or IED releases fragments that have the capability to cause life t ...
