  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. Low-Cost/Robust Nanosatellite Spacecraft for Distributed, Communication Systems Constellations

    SBC: ADVANCED SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Both DOD and NASA have future missions that require the launch and deployment of an increasing number of single spacecraft, as well as multi-craft constellations. The desire to minimize cost and ensure the robustness of these high value assets has givenrise to the need for on-orbit inter-satellite communications that provides redundancy and fault tolerant satellite-to-satellite communications. T ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  8. In Situ Evaluation of Composite Structural Performance in Presence of High Stress/Strain Gradients using Multiaxis Fiber Grating Strain Sensors

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    In order to measure multi-axis strain fields and strain field gradients interior to composite materials, it is necessary to be able to measure both transverse axes of strain and axial strain. In addition, these sensors should be capable of measuringstrain gradients. Blue Road Research has developed a multi-axis fiber optic grating sensor that can be used to meet these requirements. This proposa ...
