  1. Exhaust Gas Trace Species Detection System for Turbine Engines

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Microdischarge based chemical sensing is a novel detection scheme that relies on extremely sensitive emission spectroscopy, without the need for expensive plasma sources and vacuum systems required in large scale plasmas. This technique provesparticularly powerful for metals detection due to strong emission spectra from metals in a discharge. Additionally, the sensors presented are small, rugge ...

  3. Accurate Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) Techniques for High Frequency Applications

    SBC: CHEW CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High-accuracy electromagnetic simulation method is traditionally very inefficient.Recently however, MLFMA (multilevel fast multipole algorithm) has demonstrated theability to solve scattering problems accurately up to X band (10 million unknowns).Although orders of magnitude faster than traditional accurate methods, in thehigh-frequency regime such as X band, these fast methods are still not as f ...

  4. Superlattice Materials for Very-Long Wavelength Infrared Detectors (VLWIR)

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    "The fabrication of large format, highly sensitive Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs), sensing at very long wavelength in the IR region i.e beyond 15um (VLWIR) is highly desirable for Air Force's space based applications. Currently, only limited types of arrays suchas 256 X 256 Si:As (5-20 um) are available in this IR region. However, these extrinsic detectors suffer from some fundamental limitations, such ...

  5. High-Performance HgCdTe VLWIR Photovoltaic Detectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose a new generation of non-equilibrium superlattice, high efficiency VLWIR(14 um and longer) detectors that operate in the 40-77K temperature range. The objectives will be achieved by combining the advantages of the molecular beam epitaxy(MBE)crystal growth technique, an innovative non-equilibrium device architecture, and a superlattice structure to control the absorption cut-off waveleng ...

  6. Ductile Intermetallic Joints for Heavy Alloys

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Good ballistic performance results when the maximum kinetic energy is delivered to the target. Increasing the weight of the projectile achieves this goal. One reasonable way to enhance the mass behind the nose of the penetrator is to augment its size. Theconflict between increased lethality for large projectiles and limited facilities for producing large penetrators leads to a need to join small ...

  7. Simple High-Power Fuel Cell Based UPS

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "It has been demonstrated that the proposed concept of a fuel cell based UPS is a viable alternative to battery, flywheel, or combustion engine based solutions in the multi-kW range. The new UPS system combines completely instantaneous transfer responsewith high reliability and environmental friendliness. It can withstand large power surges for extended periods of time without adverse effects and ...

  8. High Strength, Oxidation Resistant Carbon/Carbon Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Higher strength carbon/carbon (C/C) composites are required if such components are to replace currently used titanium products in the aircraft industry. This Phase I STTR addresses this need with the development of C/C composites with a 3-D fiberarchitecture and a reinforced carbon matrix. The 3-D preform composites have demonstrated superior compressive and tensile strength in relationship to ...

  9. Modular Fuel Cell Based Power Generators

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to develop power generator modulars that can be stacked to obtain different power level. Power generation is based on advanced fuel cell technology that allows sudden switching and excellent load following. The design will be based onMER's low cost fuel cell technology. The individual modulesare self-regulating and load leveling if stacked.. The modules are rugged, interchangea ...

  10. Thermionic Power Source Technology.

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to survey existing thermionic converter technology and to determine how significant improvements can be achieved. All components for thermionic generators will be critically evaluated and improvements in design and materials will be sought.It will be evaluated if high performance cathode materials can be integrated into a substantially improved thermionic converter device. One of ...
