  1. A Multi-Representation Architecture for STEP AP210-based PCB Stackup Design and Warpage Analysis

    SBC: INTERCAX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This effort creates foundations for highly automated simulation tools that predict warpage in printed circuit boards and assemblies (PCAs/PCBs) and chip packages. Our technique, MHS, provides core capabilities to automate warpage and other problems that were impractical until now. MHS extends a multi-representation approach the PI first conceived at Georgia Tech for CAD-CAE interoperability. This ...

  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. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: ADAPTIVE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T022

    This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed for voice channels. The investigation will determine t ...

  4. 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. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...

  6. Development of an Innovative Practical UAV with no Moving Aerodynamic Control Surfaces

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05246

    Prior to this project, zero net mass flux Synthetic Jet Actuators (SJAs) were used primarily as a mechanism to keep flow attached that would otherwise be separated. Thus, SJAs located near a wing’s leading edge have been shown in experimental projects such as the NASA/GTRI Stingray UAV to be effective for producing forces and moments suitable for flight control only at high angles of attack. I ...

  7. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structures for Small UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05T019

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated, and our research institution partner Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will continue development of our unique two-stage Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) system for the design of highly integrated miniature broadband antennae for small UAVs. The concept of structurally-integrated multifunction antennae embedded into airframes is central to the DoD’s "smart sk ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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.

  10. Design, fabrication, and characterization of novel waveguide structures for high-power and compact THz sources based on a novel concept

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: AF06110

    In the proposed work we will investigate the THz properties of a slab waveguide made from a GaP or ZnGeP2 wafer. We plan to investigate how the width of a slab waveguide will affect the output power of the THz waves and normalized conversion efficiencies. We are particularly interested in the exploration of how the multi-modes supported by the waveguide will affect the THz parametric conversion du ...
