  2. Multistage Electromagnetic and Laser Launch Systems for Affordable, Rapid Access to Space

    SBC: LAUNCHPOINT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T001

    Electromagenetic (EM) launchers could radically decrease the cost to launch and orbit micro-satellites and could provide launch with little lead time, but thus far it has not been feasible to achieve this capability with linear EM launchers. The objective of this research is to determine the viability of circular launch accelerators. Phase I explored designs consisting of a maglev sled accelerate ...

  4. SUGV-Integrated Non-Contact Deep UV Biochemical Agent Surface Detector (UVBASD)

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06T029

    This proposal addresses the need for miniature, low power, reagentless, robot-mounted, instruments for real-time detection and classification of trace concentrations of biological and chemical agents on surfaces. Deep UV laser induced native fluorescence (UVLINF) is the most sensitive technique for detection and rough classification of trace amounts of biological and organic materials. Photon Sy ...

  6. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T007

    During Phase II of the proposed program, Science and Technology Applications, LLC (STA), proposes to find a green replacement for ammonium perchlorate (AP). During Phase I of this program, the novel tetranitroborate, B(NO2)4-, anion, was identified as a potential high-oxygen carrier. Its combination with the NH4+ cation would result in the formation of ammonium tetranitroborate (ATNB), NH4+B(NO2)4 ...

  7. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T022

    With its capability for long range and good penetration, UHF is a popular wireless band. Because of this, frequency allocations in UHF are typically small, on the order of tens of kHz. At the same time, there is an increasing popularity of aerial platforms, such as UAVs, containing a variety of imaging systems. So, while there may be numerous UAVs in a particular region of interest, there is no cu ...

  8. Meander Line Traveling wave tube THz Amplifier

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05T020

    We propose to develop an innovative, traveling-wave tube amplifier (TWTA) compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for submillimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on a novel, interaction circuit; long life, high current density electron guns; compact power supplies; and compact magnet configurations providing compact, lig ...

  9. Automated Behavioral Health Triage

    SBC: Activity Research Services            Topic: A04T025

    The overall objective of this project is to develop an automatic adaptive testing system that rapidly identifies specific cognitive deficits to aid in medical and operational decision making. The Phase I effort produced a prototype adaptive triage system. ANAMts, designed to automatically focus testing on specific cognitive domains. ANAMts consists of a 4-level adaptive cognitive testing system ...

  10. Nanoscale Chemical Analysis using Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (nano-LIBS)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: A04T011

    As nanotechnology fabrication develops internationally, the availability of tools for ensuring that materials and systems abide by their design characteristics becomes essential. In order for nanotechnology to mature, diagnostic instruments must be developed to detect and analyze physical and chemical properties with spatial resolution much less than the dimensions of the nanostructures (materials ...
