  1. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  2. Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) Common Performance Measurement Development, Tracking, and Warehousing System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    The capability to routinely collect and track human performance data across a variety of training, rehearsal, exercise, and test and evaluation environments is a paramount need for the Air Force.  Lumir Research Institute proposes to build the Common Data Acquisition system (CoDA), a software suite that will provide access to performance data from various simulation environments regardless of the ...

  3. The Low Cost Production of Titanium Alloy Powder Directly from Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF081035

    Because of a unique combination of properties, titanium alloys play a key role in DoD systems.  One of the key issues that is preventing more widespread use of Ti-alloys is the cost and cycle time of the Kroll process followed by multiple steps to convert to powders or products.  A viable approach of combined electrochemical and chemical processing has demonstrated in a Phase I program that low ...

  4. High-speed, low voltage, miniature electro-optic modulators based on hybrid photonic-crystal/polymer/sol-gel technology

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF07T007

    The primary objective of the proposed research program is to realize a miniature, high-speed, low voltage hybrid photonic crystal waveguide modulator based on state-of-the-art electro-optic polymers with electro-optic coefficients on the order of 200pm/V as well as innovative poling, leading edge silicon photonics and EO polymer infiltration techniques.  Phase I work has demonstrated the viabilit ...

  5. Rocket Engine Analysis Codes on the Internet

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: N/A

    We propose starting a commercial Internet website that will provide access to a variety of computer codes for the purpose of analyzing rocket engines and rocket engine components. Users will be able to execute well-maintained computer codes over the Internet. The codes found on the website will be an improvement on what is currently available since they will be maintained and upgraded by a conso ...

    SBIR Phase II 1998 Department of DefenseAir Force

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Affordable/low cost carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are enabling to a number of defense, aerospace and commercial applications. However, in addition to cost, their limitation is carbon gasification in oxidative environments above about 750¿F (=400¿C). An inhibited carbon matrix that reduces oxidation rate by a factor of 200 with up to double the strength of uninhibited composites which could be ...

  7. Multiple-Channel Holographic Cinematography (MHC)

    SBC: North Dancer Labs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to store and analyze a continuous sequence of high resolution images of a ballistic event has tremendous benefits in determining the ballistic limits for laminated carbon fiber materials. When the ability to store these images in a 3-D format is introduced, the volume of data that can be extracted from each image is far more than any single photograph. Unlike photography or direct di ...

  8. A Unified Comprehensive Intelligent Engine Monitoring System

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The firm proposes to conduct a program of research on real-time engine health monitoring (EHM) system for gas turbine engines. The proposed system is motivated by several factors: 1) effective monitoring improves engine performance and operability, 2) current engine monitoring field is fragmented and it needs standardization, 3) effective monioring requires advanced modeling and information pro ...

  9. Ultra High Surface Area Aluminum Powder for High Energy Explosives


    A novel, high energy density, aluminum-polymer propellant with ultra-high surface area and the potential for extremely high reaction rates, full utilization of the aluminum material, and an integrated fuel/oxidizer system is proposed. A patented ultra-high speed nanotechnology vacuum process is used to produce the nanolaminate material, which, even in powder form, can have hundreds of very thin a ...

  10. Trajectory Modeling & Optimization for Future Space Systems

    SBC: SPECTRUM ASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this study six techniques for effectively modeling and analyzing the trajectories of future space systems are investigated. These techniques are grouped into methods for modeling trajectories by conversion to a mathematical programming problem, and methods for solving mathematical programming problems. The first group includes parallel shooting, high-order collocation and differential inclusi ...
