  1. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers in space are subjected to various threats including hyperthermal oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons, and ions.  These threats can degrade the polymer and lead to static charge accumulation.  This Phase II proposal will build on the Phase I work which demonstrated that inorganic films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) can protect polymers such as Kapton, Teflon and PMMA.  Al2O3 ALD f ...

  2. Platform for Ultracold Atom Inertial Sensor Development

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF07T024

    This work proposes to develop two critical subsystems and a rotation platform designed to enable ultracold atom inertial sensing research and development, with emphasis on rotation sensing (gyroscopes) for navigation, geolocation, mapping, and similar tasks.  The two subsystems presented here, the computer control and interface subsystem, and the integrated atom chip power source/current driver s ...

  3. Adaptive Structures for Micro Munition Platforms


    The U.S. Air Force has significant interest in the development of adaptive structures for micro munition platforms.  However, power, mass and cost constraints significantly limits the applicability of existing adaptive structure concepts for these smaller platforms.  To address these challenges, CTD is proposing the use of solid-state, electrically-driven actuators that require minimal power and ...

  4. Passively Deployed Lightweight Solar Array Structure for Thinned-Multijunction Solar Cells


    Current deployable solar array systems are based on designs that have been in existence for more than 30 years.  In general, these heritage designs can be divided into two classes: 1) hinged-panel arrays, which are mechanically simple but mass inefficient, and 2) tensioned-membrane arrays, which are mechanically complex but mass efficient.  Arguably, no deployable solar array designs exist that ...

  5. Distributed Satellite Resource Management for Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF081090

    The DF&NN team will integrate Space Situational Awareness (SSA) & Defensive Space Control (DSC) R&D based upon the DF&NN Dual Node Network DF&RM technical architecture. The DF&NN subcontractor Modern Technology Solutions Inc (MTSI) brings extensive operations experience to define relevant needs. We will focus on six problem areas: 1. Space Environment SSA/DSC: How to fuse space weather, BFS/SAS, a ...

  6. An Improved Non-Wood Wheel Chock Design for USAF Operational Aircraft

    SBC: RIMSTAR            Topic: AF071309

    The currently accepted aircraft wheel chock in use at most USAF and other military facilities is made of wood which routinely chips, cracks, becomes waterlogged and requires significant maintenance such as refurbishment and painting.  In this Phase II SBIR project. Rimstar, Inc, and its sister company, Checkers Industrial Safety Products will design a non-wood wheel chock that will overcome these ...

  7. Cryogenic High Power Laser Pump Diodes

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF073003

    ABSTRACT: Directed Energy Solutions (DES) is proposing to develop a cryogenically cooled diode laser stack system. In the proposed effort DES will design, fabricate, test and delivery a cryogenically cooled multiple diode laser stack system. Output powers of the laser system of 6 kW are anticipated with a scaling option at the 12 kW level. At the end of proposed effort the system will be deliv ...

  8. Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF073033

    Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response is a breakthrough game changing analysis and response capability addressing integrated attacks at a fusion level 3 (identity, path, and intent).  Previous efforts including the Phase 1 demonstrated that high level abstraction of network and host data is not only possible, but measureable and verifiable.  The Phase 1 prototype defines and detects cou ...

  9. A Low Cost Production Process for Large High Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites


    Eltron Research & Development Inc. and the Southwest Research Institute® will focus on three primary objectives during Phase II of this Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) STTR program, building upon the success realized during Phase I work. First, we will be prepared to transition High Temperature Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (HTVARTM) needed in Phase III, by optimizing and ...

  10. Wideband,Lightweight, Beamformer

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF081031

    Narrow beam electronically scanned phased array antennas play a vital role in many defense communications, radar and EW systems.  However, because of the cost and complexity of the constituent components, as well as the typical array manufacturing processes, phased arrays still remain prohibitively expensive for all but the most vital applications.  FIRST RF Corporation has recently developed a ...
