  1. Development of Long-Life, Energy-Dense Batteries Using Alpha-Beta Emitting Isotopes/Isomers

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: N191041

    The primary goal will be to prioritize a list of radioisotopes based on availability, usability, demand, strategic interests, and production methods. In addition, we will begin to design and test new nuclear battery systems (radioisotopes coupled to a semi-conductor matrix). Results from durability or efficiency tests of nuclear battery prototypes using radiation from accelerated beams can be comp ...

  2. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  3. Reusable MATPAC Packaging System for Expeditionary Airfields

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N191009

    Expeditionary airfields (EAF) provide the US military with flexibility in operations and strategy. The Marine's Wing Support Squadron and Navy Mobile Construction Battalions are tasked with rapid deployment and operation of expeditionary airfields in any feasible location around the world. AM-2 matting is the base upon which the entire EAF system rests. Large quantities of these mats are required ...

  6. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: SWIFT TEXTILE METALIZING LLC            Topic: AF191005

    An auxetic material is defined as having a negative Poissons ratio, whereby a counter intuitive effect is observed. During elongation the material expands perpendicular to the plane of elongation resulting in a compensatory effect for the necking phenomenon typically observed at the midpoint of the fabric. A conductive auxetic fabric may be produced which can exhibit electrical resistance stabilit ...

  7. SysEVAL: An Initial System Design Assessment Tool for Testability and Availability Evaluation

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF191005

    A key need enunciated to QSI by various DoD and NASA technical personnel involved in the areas of Fault Management (FM) is the lack of a systematic, standardized process to evaluate a system, being designed or upgraded, for its intrinsic merits related to testability, serviceability and readiness. QSI proposes to leverage its COTS TEAMS software and its modeling and analysis abilities and adapt it ...

  8. Low Cost, Large Diameter Fiber Reinforced Polymer (Composite) Rebar

    SBC: Neuvokas Corporation            Topic: AF191005

    Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Rebar has been available for over 30 years, and has been used in over 500 structures across North America.FRP rebar has always demanded a higher price point and this has limited its ability to gain a larger market share.Neuvokas has developed a process to produce small diameter, 3/8 inch, FRP rebar at process speeds that are 23X faster than current SOA.This has creat ...
