  1. L-Band Solid-State High Power Amplifier for Airborne Platforms

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: N06125

    Utilizing Nitronex’s solid state GaN FETs and SAIC’s design expertise in PAs, a small, lightweight power amplifier can be achieved. Specifically, in this phase I effort, Nitronex will advance GaN technology and design high power (>250W) devices with very low thermal resistance in order to provide building blocks required for the PA. Nitronex will perform extensive thermal simulations and arr ...

  2. Broadband GaN-based Power Amplifier for Airborne Tactical Communication Systems

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: N06119

    Nitronex will use baseline GaN HEMT process (NRF1) to demonstrate feasibility of broadband 35-40W solid-state PA with >35% efficiency across 225-3200MHz frequency range required by the program. Nitronex will establish feasibility by (a) reducing thermal resistance of current generation device layout through thermal simulation (b) modifying CFET model with updated thermal characteristics of the ou ...

  4. Secure Legacy Application Integration with NCES (SLAIN)


    Our solution is a generic "gateway/edge translation product", for Secure Legacy Application Integration with the NCES Enterprise Network structure (called “SLAIN”), that provides a modular implementation of the following capabilities to enhance Legacy systems and enable them to interact in a more Net-Centric role in support of the Navy and FORCEnet guidance: • IA interoperability (few legacy ...

  5. Cross-Domain Document-Based Collaboration in a Multi-Level-Secure Environment

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N05085

    Our method of enabling cross-domain collaboration allows documents whose contents have a mixture of sensitivity levels to be viewed and edited by users with differing clearance levels, while maintaining the requisite security constraints. In particular, we've identified the following key technical requirements: *Multi-level documents: single documents may contain multiple sections of varying class ...

  6. Advanced Epoxy System for Large Scale Composite Ship Component Manufacturing Using the VARTM Process.


    A major limitation of current high performance composites made from vinyl ester resins is their performance with carbon fiber reinforcements. Carbon fiber composites can possess much higher specific stiffness and strength than glass fiber composites, but the laminated composite properties depend on a good interface between the matrix resin and the fiber. Since vinyl ester resins typically do not e ...

  7. Epoxy and Epoxy-Hybrid Nano-Particle Resins for Carbon-Fiber Ship Structures By Ambient VARTM Process

    SBC: ZELLCOMP, INC.            Topic: N06T040

    The Navy has used vinyl ester resin as the matrix material for manufacturing large scale composite ship structures. However, the Navy is now using carbon fiber as the reinforcement, which means the use of vinyl ester as the matrix system is less appealing. When carbon fiber and vinyl ester resin are combined, lower interfacial properties occur. Also, vinyl ester systems have high-cure shrinkage. Z ...

  8. Integrally 3D Woven/3D Braided Composite Joining Elements For Ship Construction

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N04093

    During Phase I, 3TEX designed universal, one-piece, 3D woven fiber preforms which can be used as either a “Butt” (H) joint or as a “P” joint as needed. Composite joints were fabricated and tested, demonstrating the benefit of the integral nature of the 3D preforms. 3D stress/strain and crack propagation analysis of composite Π-joint was performed using 3D MOSAIC code. 3D displacement, st ...

  9. An underwater bioluminescence assessment tool (U-BAT)

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N05T026

    The goal of this research is to produce a light-weight, inexpensive bioluminescence sensor capable of accurately measuring fine-scale vertical bioluminescence potential (

  10. 3-D Fiber Reinforced, Thermally Conductive Rotor Sheaths

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N06T013

    Military helicopters rotors contend with rain, ice, sand, and flying debris. To prevent damage to the expensive blade protective sheaths or coatings are applied to the leading edge of the rotor blades. A 3-D woven composite sheath with high thermal conductivity fibers running through the thickness can offer the best qualities of both metal sheaths and elastomer coatings. Infused with an elastom ...
