  1. "Night Glow"Short Wave Infrared LED (NSLED) Image Projector Development

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF131098

    ABSTRACT: This project aims to develop a Short Wave Infrared band image projector to provide real time detector stimulation with high dynamic range. Our emitter technology is based on GaInAsSb quaternary semiconductor LED arrays hybridized to CMOS read-in integrated circuits. This project leverages read-in circuit design and control electronics that were developed under SLEDS - a longer wavelengt ...

  2. 20-kW Bismuth Hall Thruster with Evaporative Anode

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: AF04198

    High-power Hall thrusters operating at high thrust-to-power ratios will consume and emit unprecedented amounts of xenon propellant. The inherent costs associated with xenon use have significantly hindered development of such devices. Metallic propellants, specifically bismuth, have recently emerged as potentially higher-performing, lower-cost alternatives to xenon. When used in a Hall thruster ...

  4. 2730 Wh/kg Chemical Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage/Generator

    SBC: TRULITE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The biggest problem with fuel cells is now the fuel storage issue. Fuel cells function most efficiently (>50%) when supplied with pure hydrogen. Unfortunately, storing large quantities of hydrogen in a compact, lightweight form has proven to be verydifficult. Most of the hydrogen storage methods available do not come close the matching the energy density of gasoline. However, chemical hydrides ...

  5. 3-D Visualization Analyzer

    SBC: FAAC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    FAAC Incorporated proposes to develop a 3-D Visualization Analyzer to aid with evaluation of weapon systems. The tool will provide an integrated environment capable of improving understanding and efficiency. The 3-D Visualization Analyzer will utilize data information produced by off line engineering simulations (or other suitable sources) to provide meaningful depiction of real world engagement ...

  6. 5-Picosecond Photoconductive Sampling Oscilloscope

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We are proposing a fundamental leap forwards in both technique and performance of measurement techniques for characterizing ultrahigh-speed electronic signals. We will design and build a laser-based oscilloscope for characterizing electrical signals in the picosecond time regime. The oscilloscope will be based on the use of non-stoichiometrically grown InGaAs:As photoconductive detector elements t ...

  8. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: Non Volatile Memories (NVM) are necessary for many applications, including sensors, hardware based radio station, wireless systems, instrumentation, video, and power. These applications are often used in harsh environments including the medical radiological, nuclear, space, and military markets. These radiation environments magnify the difficulty of designing complex NVMs due to the f ...
