  1. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  2. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF03T003

    This Phase II STTR research project is designed to further develop a mass spectrometry technology employing Hadamard Transform (HT) multiplexing techniques with the goal of developing a relatively simple, linear, rugged, HT time-of-flight (HT-TOF) mass spectrometer that offers high sensitivity and rapid mass spectra storage rates. Southwest Sciences and Stanford University will focus their effor ...

  4. Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop

    SBC: Kent Optronics, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T020

    This STTR Phase II proposal relates to the development of a Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop facilities. The focus is to transition Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) displays to the infrared regime and to develop multi-band projection optics. This projection display enables MDA/AF a much enhanced scene simulation capability for missile intercepti ...

  5. Laser Micromachining of Optical Structures and Surfaces

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T016

    MLPC is aggressively developing the technological infrastructure for laser micromachining silicon carbide (SiC) mirror substrates to reduce both cost and long lead-times associated with current beryllium optics. During the Phase I STTR effort investigation into the effects of laser micromachining SiC substrates showed that no apparent defects such as microcracks are observed when machining over a ...

  6. High-Bandwidth High-Resolution Sensor for Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF03T013

    A working prototype of a miniature 2 MHz a.c. driven, weakly-ionized plasma anemometer for measurements at hypersonic Mach numbers was developed during a Phase I effort. This device uses a plasma discharge between two encapsulated electrodes as the primary sensing element. The discharge has a demonstrated sensitivity to mean and dynamic mass-flux variations up to Mach number = 1.4 and 200 kHz resp ...

  7. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: AF03T010

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of shape memory alloys, and of Ni2MnGa in particular, suggest they could be sensing elements for shear. In recent years, single crystal films of Ni2MnGa have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). Once released from their substrate, these films hav ...

  8. Computational Methods for Feedback Controllers for Aerodynamics Flow Applications

    SBC: Cobalt Solutions, Llc            Topic: AF03T007

    A software toolbox for closed loop flow control investigations will be developed. Our proposed toolbox integrates a well tested Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver (Cobalt) with feedback and controls specific software tools implemented in Matlab. All data exchange and output will use efficient open standard data formats to interface the results to most any commercial visualization package. ...

  9. Stability and Quench Protection for HTS Superconducting Magnets

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF04T002

    The Air Force is currently pursuing the development of high temperature superconducting generators. Coated YBCO superconductor tape is a strong candidate to enable this application for rotor coils. There is the concern that it might be difficult to detect if a quench is occurring in a YBCO coated conductor coil and thus take action to protect the coil for being destroyed. During the Phase I we ...

  10. High Energy Density Capacitors for Navy Pulse Power Applications

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N03T007

    Advanced power systems for Future Naval Capability depend on capacitor banks as the first stage of pulsed power. Significant electrical energy is necessary to support a range of applications including electromagnetic armor, electromagnetic gun and electro-mechanical aircraft launch systems. It is anticipated that each electric ship will require up to one trillion joules of capacitor energy. Adv ...
