  1. Catalytic N2O Decomposition for Piloted Scramjet Ignition

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF083121

    Achieving hypersonic flight with air breathing vehicles using logistics fuels is a demanding task. A significant challenge in the development of single use and reusable systems alike is ignition of the scramjet engine at low Mach numbers. Unfortunately, current ignition systems do not provide reliable performance at low Mach number. Therefore, there is a strong need for a significant ignition capa ...

  2. Adaptive Zoom Collimator Design and Risk Reduction

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF103018

    Ground-based testing of air / space-borne sensors & trackers (SBIRS, GMD, THAAD, etc.) requires achromatic optical collimation systems that can project dynamic scenes & targets at very large apparent distances. The collimation system must undergo major adjustments to optimally accommodate the FOV of various test articles, but the projection quality is extremely sensitive to misalignment of the lar ...

  3. Cell-to-Cell Thermal/Projectile Communication Mitigation during Thermal Runaway in Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries are ubiquitous in space and military applications, generating more efficient and effective systems. The increase in Li-ion cells also represents an increase in hazardous cell failure instances. Electrical shorting, overcharging, over-discharging, and physical damage to the cells can result in thermal runaway (TR), yielding violent and explosive events that can result ...

  4. Post Processing of Satellite Catalog Data for Event

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF151083

    This SBIR effort supports the development and demonstration of an alternative approach to the discovery and tracking of resident space objects to free up Government resources (human and sensor) by leveraging advanced algorithms, non-traditional data sources, and on-site mission support, in order to better characterize the evolving space environment. This would reduce the burden on Air Force operat ...

  5. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  6. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  7. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    The Bottom Feeder project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a prototype platform. The prototype will be a full size version of the platform designed during Phase I. The Phase I platform was designed to work in two operational configurations, a highly efficient mode and a highly maneuverable mode, with the ability to switch between them while submerged. The platform is equ ...

  9. Direct Measurement of Targeting Coordinates from Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) EO/IR Gimbal Systems

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171120

    Trillium proposes both hardware and software developments in the Phase II effort to further refine geolocation improvements found in Phase I and design a robust gimbal product that has future expandability. Trillium prototyped and flight tested a number of software algorithms in Phase 1 that can be extrapolated to show CAT-1 geolocation accuracy from a range of 2000ft. However, these were accompli ...

  10. HVPE-Based Gallium Oxide Homoepitaxial Structures for RF and Power Switching Devices

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF171018

    Kyma will advance the hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) growth technology for producing high quality crystalline layers of β-Ga2O3, β-(Al,Ga)2O3, and β-(In,Ga)2O3 layers on single crystal β-Ga2O3 substrates. The electrical and structural quality of these materials will be optimized over a range of doping levels and alloy compositions, and their uniformity across the wafer will also be ...
