  3. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  4. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...

  5. VARTM Processing of High Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites

    SBC: M&P TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T013

    By leveraging recent innovations in resin formulations and low cost processing techniques, affordable high temperature composite structures can be affordably achieved. Newly developed polyimide (PI) resins demonstrate excellent property retention at 550°F for up to 1000 hrs. Fabrication of PI based composites is currently too expensive for most production applications. The feasibility of high ...

  7. Dualband Polarization Sensitive Quantum Dot Detectors

    SBC: NDP Optronics LLC.            Topic: AF07T027

    The proposed innovation will prove the feasibility of developing a spectral tunable and polarization sensitive quantum dot (QD) based detector in the 2-14 micron range. The aim is to satisfy the U.S. Air Force (USAF) requirements for passive spectral and polarization sensing in the infrared range without external filtering components and polarizers. The approach for achieving this challenge is to ...

  8. Developing High Fidelity Synthetic Task Research Environments Using Gaming Technology

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corporation            Topic: AF06T011

    Game technology can efficiently produce Synthetic Task Environments for training, research and assessment. Typically this technology is exploited with an entertainment-oriented game engine. However a fully functional STE requires features outside the engine's original design. This compels engineers to work around the architecture and deliver code which is compromised and complex. The system become ...
