  1. C02/Water Microemulsion Fire Suppression in Dry Bays

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083250

    Fires in dry bays of military aircraft present a significant hazard that must be addressed with advanced fire suppression systems. The USAF is interested in concepts that do not require power or active sensing of fire for proper operation. ADA Technologies, Inc. has been developing fine water mist fire suppression technology for the past 10 years, and proposes a solution for this problem that inco ...

  2. Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: AF08BT01

    There is a need to monitor the structural health of aerospace components operating in extreme temperatures ranges (e.g. -60 to +300C) and with high accelerations. Ideally the sensors employed for this task should be passive (i.e. not powered through batteries), permanently placed on the critical components and transmit the relevant data to a remote data processing center wirelessly.  Albido is pr ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using a variable conductance heat sink (VCHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) ...

  5. New algorithmic hardening schemes and multi-bit error detection/correction to enable the use of commercially derived memories in space

    SBC: TRANSEL CORP.            Topic: AF083192

    The proposed effort will demonstrate the suitability of a mature commercial production technology in meeting the requirements for a cost effective, high capacity non-volatile memory solution for space systems.  The feasibility of mitigating radiation sensitivities in, and improving the reliability of, devices built upon the selected technology will be demonstrated during Phase 1.  We will develo ...

  6. Biomolecular Taggants for Covert Tracking and Watermarking

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: AF073035

    Functional taggants are paints or inks that change their optical properties in response to specified environmental conditions, such as the presence of a chemical related to illicit weapon activities. In this project, we will develop taggant systems for two non-conventional weapon signatures. Taggants will have high chemical selectivity (avoids false positives), high chemical affinity (avoids flase ...

  7. Small Unpiloted Aircraft System (SUAS) Auto-tracking of Moving and Stationary Targets

    SBC: SOLUTION ENGINEERING            Topic: AF083129

    Solution Engineering, Inc. (SEI) proposes to develop and demonstrate a prototype real time tracking system that supports robust multiple target tracking in an urban environment.  The approach will focus on increasing the robustness of the core feature tracking algorithms, utilizing target invariant characteristics to extend the ability to track, coast, and reacquire targets.  In addition higher ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Low Cost Deployable Calibration Structure

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF083224

    The U.S. has an inadequate capability to precisely calibrate ground and space-based Space Situational Awareness (SSA) sensors (U.S. SOSI system) with objects of known signatures. There is a need for a low cost, space-based capability that provides simultaneous electro-optical (EO), infrared (IR), and radio-frequency (RF) characteristics to calibrate the U.S. SOSI system. This enhanced U.S. SOSI sy ...

  10. Adaptive Structures for Micro Munition Platforms

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF081050

    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 ...
