  1. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  2. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  6. Radiation Model Development for Combustion Systems

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    Evolving demand for robust and accurate multi-physics modeling tools for high performance combustion devices is being driven by increasingly complex design, analysis, and simulation requirements, but existing models and their underlying assumptions need to be rigorously examined in light of their intended Air Force propulsion system applications. The production use of coupled multi-physics module ...

  7. Next Generation Rad Hard Reduced Instruction Set Computer

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF141097

    ABSTRACT: Tezzaron proposes to create a microprocessor device based on an ARM M0 processor designed to be fabricated in the Honeywell S150 Rad-Hard SOI semiconductor process. The device will be designed for both stand alone and 3D circuit integration. In a 3D application the device can be die to wafer or wafer to wafer assembled providing a core set of SOC processor functions. BENEFIT: An ARM M ...

  9. Microvascular Composites for Novel Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Living systems rely on pervasive vascular networks to enable a plurality of biological function, exemplified by natural composite structures that are lightweight, high-strength, and capable of mass and energy transport. In contrast, synthetic composites possess high strength-to-weight ratios but lack the dynamic functionality of their natural counterparts. CU Aerospace, with team partne ...

  10. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: ReRAM has made significant progress over the last few years and is ready for development by early adopters. Tezzaron proposes to create a multilayer 3D assembled ReRAM memory device using Rambus ReRAM technology and Honeywell RH wafers. The phase II target device will be radiation hardened, low power, non-volatile and have a density in excess of 512Mbits. BENEFIT: A ReRAM device offer ...
