  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts m ...

  3. Closed Loop Composite Recycling Process

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06081

    The recycling of composites on a large scale is an unsolved problem. Currently, the material is either ground up into near-worthless fillers, incinerated, or digested using environmentally questionable technology. Adherent Technologies, Inc. has developed a number of technologies to reclaim valuable carbon fiber and other raw materials from these composites in a potentially economically feasible ...

  5. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF05003

    AgilOptics’ Phase I SBIR proposed the development of a moire¢ Wave-Front Sensor (MWFS) test-bed to evaluate the MWFS design developed and patented by the University of New Mexico (UNM) and to extend the design for use in a closed-loop Adaptive Optic (AO) system with a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Deformable Mirror (DM) corrector. Our Phase I results have shown that the MWFS provides i ...

  6. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  7. Robust Complex Systems

    SBC: APPERA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: OSD05SP6

    Software systems today are becoming increasingly complex because of the wide range of responsibilities they handle and the wide range of services they provide. The use of complex, high-speed, network-centric software-intensive systems is increasing within weapons and C4ISR systems and other automated information processing systems. The explosion of information and advances in hardware and weapons ...

  9. High Current Density Carbon Nanotube Cold Cathode for TWT Applications

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF05001

    Traveling wave tubes (TWTs) are key components for generating high frequencies and high power for communication, radar and electronic warfare. Almost all TWTs used to date in active service use thermal cathodes as the electron source needed to generate the high current density beam required for TWT operation. The heat generated by the cathode is difficult to dissipate in space and significantly ...

  10. A Solid-State Sensor to Identify and Quantify Contaminants in Cockpit Air

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF06023

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. will design and develop a sensor package. This sensor package will be capable of sensing various hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, particulate debris and smoke contaminants in aircraft cockpit air. Our sensor is based on solid-state sensing elements attached to a single platform and will maximize sensitivity, selectivity and specificity. Production units will be low cost, lig ...
