  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. Membraneless Microchannel Fuel Cells

    SBC: INI POWER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ARMY03T10

    Fuel cross-over still remains one of the major technical obstacles in the commercializaion of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). The objective of this Phase II STTR proposal is to take advantage of multi-stream parallel laminar flow within microchannels to elminate fuel crossover within a laminar flow fuel cell (LFFC). LFFC performance is expected to outpace tradional PEM-based DMFCs and provid ...

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: ARMY03T22

    Our Phase II goal is to develop (model, design, fabricate and test) a miniaturized biofuel cell capable of generating energy from biomass to power the OFW sensor suite. Phase I goals were successfully met by demonstrating a prototype using glucose as fuel. In contrast to conventional technologies, this biobattery promises to be compact/lightweight, require little/no logistical support (re-supply ...

  4. Optimization of Strain Balanced Heterostructures for High Power 4-5 Micron Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A04T012

    The mid-infrared (3-5 micron) spectral region is filled with possibilities for laser applications, but most lasers in this wavelength are bulky and/or require cryogenic cooling. The quantum cascade laser is a compact, diode-based laser technology that has the potential for high power operation at room temperature. In this proposal, we outline a plan for development of short wavelength (lambda < ...

  5. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF03T022

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible AI system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflict and the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  6. Hydrogen Cryostat for Muon Beam Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 04b

    75497-Ionization cooling, a method for shrinking the size of a muon beam, is needed for muon colliders and neutrino factories, two options for future High Energy Physics facilities. Hydrogen is needed in these applications for several reasons, but a safe and efficient containment cryostat is a prerequisite for its use. This project will develop a single hydrogen system to provide ionization ene ...

  7. Multifunctional Protective Coatings for Spacecraft Surfaces

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: MDA05T019

    The purpose of this STTR phase I proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing the survivable multi-functional engineered material systems for spacecraft surfaces at an affordable cost using the proposed novel material designs and processes. The objectives of these efforts are not only to demonstrate the technical feasibility, but also to illustrate that at least 50% cost savings for DOD ...

  8. Surface-Enhanced Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species

    SBC: BIOTOOLS, INC.            Topic: AF05T025

    This Phase I STTR will demonstrate the feasibility of near-infrared (near-IR) excited surface-enhanced Raman optical activity (SEROA) as a sensitive new probe of biological molecules and trace chiral materials. The research will use nanoshells as fabricated and optimized at Rice University as a newly developed, tunable, highly-uniform, SERS substrates for chiral molecules and bio-molecules. The ...

  9. HMSI CyberCollaborator for Integrated Hazard Management

    SBC: Hazard Management Systems, Inc.            Topic: A05T026

    This project will demonstrate the feasibility of a new technology, called HMSI CyberCollaborator, for integrated hazard management. HMSI CyberCollaborator will enable collaborators to efficiently discuss and share information, data, and modeling results, whether they are in the same location or across the country. Prototype technology created at the University of Illinois will be adapted to this p ...

  10. Compact Formic Acid Fuel Cells

    SBC: RENEW POWER            Topic: A05T005

    The objective of this Phase I proposal is to do the critical characterization of passive formic acid fuel cells (FAFC) and to complete a conceptual design for a 20W device. FAFC has a straightforward design and is being developed at Renew for low power range applications (i.e., milliwatts to 30 watts). The basic components of the FAFC are the same as a Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) except that ...
