  1. Sonobuoy Launched small UAV system

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04T004

    The Navy and other government-sponsored agencies use the P-3 aircraft. Due to the diverse missions and limited number of P-3 aircraft, the most economical and expeditious way to enhance operations and assure crew safety would be to incorporate low-cost expendable tactical unmanned air vehicles (UAV's). If UAVs were incorporated into each P-3, a load-out of sonobuoy launched UAV's with interchange ...

  3. High-Strength Carbide-Based Fibrous Monolith Materials for Solid Rocket Nozzles

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04T024

    Over the past 10 to 15 years, there has been a move towards the integration of ¡§advanced¡¨ materials with improved performance in hostile propulsion environments. Tantalum carbide is stable to very high temperatures (~3900„aC) under non-oxidizing conditions, but is relatively soft and erodes appreciably with aluminized propellants. In an effort to improve the strength and erosion resista ...

  4. Centering Resonance Analysis: A superior data mining algorithm for textual data streams

    SBC: Crawdad Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF03T011

    An increasing amount of information comes in the form of streaming text: news media, email, and even human conversation. Creating insight from streaming text has been challenging though, because current knowledge discovery systems depend on expert analysts to move from simple data to actionable knowledge. In order for such systems to be used outside a small cadre of experts, they must incorporat ...

  6. Silicon-Based Quantum Well Laser

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF05T013

    QuantTera is developing a new class of silicon based-quantum-well near-infrared lasers using group IV semiconductor materials for photonic integrated systems. The uniqueness of this project lies in the development of a strained quantum well active region, which can be tuned to various laser emission wavelengths in the near-IR. Further more this laser will be integratable to existing electronic d ...

  7. Improved Performance of Lithium-ion Cells at Low Temperature

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 17b

    79469 When lithium-ion batteries operate at low temperatures, they exhibit poor performance relative to the performance at room temperatures. This hinders their applications in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) due to poor cold cranking properties. This project will develop technology to improve the low tempearture performance of lithium-ion battery electrolyte through t ...

  8. Terahertz Backward-Wave Oscillator with Photonic Crystal Waveguide Circuit

    SBC: Terahertz Device Corp.            Topic: AF05T020

    The proposed work addresses an opportunity to develop a portable, tunable backward wave oscillator (BWO) for room temperature generation of terahertz radiation. The approach combines microfabricated photonic crystal waveguide circuits with state-of-the-art electron guns to achieve the efficiency needed for portability. The initial devices will target the 1 to 2 THz range, though the approach can b ...

  9. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling


    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  10. Integrated Aero-Servo-Thermo-Populso-Elasticity (ASTPE) for Hypersonic Scramjet Vehicle Design/Analysis

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF05T027

    The ZONA Team proposes to establish an Aero-Servo-Propulso-Elastic (ASPE) methodology as a conceptual design/analysis tool for the stability and control of a Single Engine Missile (SEM) model, representing a generic hypersonic wave-rider with airbreathing/scramjet engine. With body flexibility included, the SEM formulation considers all physical components in order to capture the underlying physic ...
