  1. CW Indicating Chromophore for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD04103

    In Phase I, Nomadics demonstrated that a novel chemical weapon indicating chromophore (CWIC) developed by Professor Tim Swager at MIT will allow equipment to be quickly and easily examined to show any areas of contamination, making targeted decontamination manageable. When exposed to CW agent simulants, CWICs react to become fluorescent under UV stimulation. In the first phase, we implemented a s ...

  2. Chemical/Biological Decontamination

    SBC: Rta Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF04258

    The U.S. Air Force Depot receives materials, parts, and components (MPC) for repair or refurbishment from a variety of sources across the globe including forward operating areas and combat zones. Current procedures and protocols call for decontamination of MPC at forward operating locations. However, these decontamination procedures and protocols are generally aimed at complete assemblies – no ...

  3. Aircraft Corrosion Inspection

    SBC: USUT LABS            Topic: AF04274

    This project will develop an inspection technology capable of accurately detecting and characterizing flaws and/or corrosion in multi-layered structures made of dissimilar metals. The inspection target of this project is the F-15 splice joint at wing station 155 where tapered surfaces of aluminum and titanium are joined with steel fasteners. This region is subject to corrosion and is particular ...

  4. Micro Gas Analysis System for Detecting CW Agents

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: DOESC000817c

    Attacks using chemical warfare (CW) agents are a principal threat to the US homeland and deployed assets. This proposal focuses on demonstrating key capabilities required to develop a micro-gas analysis (MGA) system that provides orders of magnitude improvement in sensitivity and a very high degree of chemical selectivity to achieve false alarm rates that match laboratory gas chromatographs with ...

  5. Elimination of Methane from Landfill Gas

    SBC: Alchem Field Services, Inc.            Topic: 45c

    75239S Municipal solid waste landfills are the single largest source of anthropogenic methane emissions in the United States, producing 7 million tons, or 34% of the nation's total methane pollution. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control¿s third assessment report, methane has a global warming potential 21 times that of carbon dioxide and is a key contributor to global clim ...

  6. A Tool for the Simulation of Thermal and Chemical Effects on Turbine Engine Component Parts

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF04155

    CompuTherm proposes to develop a tool which will enable the simulation of thermal and chemical effects on turbine engine component parts made of Alloy 718 during heat treatment and service. The proposed innovative tool will include a thermodynamic database which covers all the phases for Alloy 718 and a software package which integrates both thermodynamic and kinetic models. The tool can be used t ...

  7. In-Harbor/At-Sea Ship Defense with Terahertz Sensors

    SBC: VDW DESIGN, LLC            Topic: N04065

    The Phase II component of this project will scale from the gigahertz to the terahertz regime the new antennas, pulse generators, detectors and modulation concepts modeled and demonstrated in Phase I. Phase II efforts will focus on arrays for generating and detecting broadband radiation from 50 GHz to above 0.5 THz (where atmospheric absorption is minimized) for sensing concealed threats. Portabili ...

  8. Labeling, Interrogation, and Loading System (LILS)

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: AF04303

    Modern flight line engineers are faced with a large variety of sensor configurations. Different types of vehicles, and sometimes even different individual vehicles of the same type, have widely varying sensor loadouts. With current Instrumentation Support Systems (ISSs), each sensor configuration must be manually described to the ISS. This process is tedious, time consuming, and error prone. No ...

  9. Computer-Aided Design and Optimization of High Performance Vacuum Electronic Devices


    High-performance vacuum electron devices, such as microwave tubes, are widely used in military electronic battle-space systems. These devices are found in radar, communications, remote sensing, and navigation systems, where they provide an efficient and reliable source of microwave power. The pivotal role of microwave tubes in many on-board systems makes them a natural choice for careful optimiza ...

  10. Passivation of Dislocation Defects by Hydrogenation for High Performance Longwave Infrared (LWIR) HgCdTe on Silicon


    Production of low cost, large format HgCdTe LWIR focal plane arrays (FPAs) requires delivery of low defect density HgCdTe epilayers on Si. Despite the significant lattice mismatch between Si and HgCdTe several companies have demonstrated high performance MBE grown MWIR (3-5 microns)-HgCdTe devices on large-area Si substrates. This success has not translated directly to LWIR (8-12 microns)-HgCdTe d ...
