  1. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Interest in lithium metal-air batteries has been growing in recent years, along with the demand for lighter power sources for devices ranging from plug-in hybrid vehicles to laptops. In lithium-ion batteries, the electrodes are made of materials such as graphite, while in a lithium-metal battery, the anode is made up entirely of lithium metal, and the surrounding air can act as the cathode. Lithi ...

  2. Robotic System for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: A09AT029

    The R-NOTES platform serves as an innovative and unifying system architecture for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) to be used in both the civilian and military sectors. While NOTES has recently emerged as a logical step beyond laparoscopic methods in minimally invasive surgery, several technological hurdles, largely associated with flexible instruments, remain before widespr ...

  3. Broadband Obscurants for Visible and IR Countermeasures

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: A08T025

    Successful military operations require dominant control of the electromagnetic spectrum in the battlefield. Smokes and obscurants are becoming increasingly important to block the function of enemy optical tracking systems and sensors during day and night operations. Fielded munitions are optimized for either the visible or infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. A single device that b ...

  4. Integration of 360-Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Panoramic Imager

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: A09AT017

    This proposal aims to develop and demonstrate a novel fused sensor system capable of detecting bullets in real time and over a 360o field-of-view. The bullet detection is based on a retrodirective noise-correlating radar that also provides the bullet bearing in real time. The bearing information will be transformed into a track through space with real-time external processing in a PC or PDA. Th ...

  5. High Performance Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A09AT007

    Currently there is wide variation in QCL performance at different wavelengths. Performance of new generation of QCLs recently demonstrated at wavelengths near 4.6 & #956;m exceeds the performance of legacy QCLs at other wavelengths by a wide margin. Much of the progress at 4.6 & #956;m was made under DARPA"s EMIL program. The objective of the present Phase II proposal is to experimentally valid ...

  6. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Deep UV Raman and Fluorescence Detection

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    This proposal addresses the need to increase the probability of detection (PD) and reduce the probability of false alarm (Pfa) for non-contact, real-time sensors for trace levels of biological and chemical targets using simultaneous detection of Raman and fluorescence emissions. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic method that provides information about molecular bonds in target materials. ...

  7. Ultra Fine Grain Steel Alloys by Severe Plastic Deformation

    SBC: TRANSITION45 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10aT001

    This STTR program proposes to exploit the tremendous benefits that could be offered by the development of ultra fine grain steel alloys for application to the production of high performance components for military rotorcraft applications. A severe plastic deformation technology based on isothermal forging technologies will be explored here. The goal is to demonstrate a practical, production level ...

  9. Variable Thrust/Specific Impulse Electrospray Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Future Department of Defense space missions require precise, fine-positioning capabilities combined with large maneuvrability requirements. The purpose of this STTR is to: a) identify propellants for electrospray propulsion able to cover, at high propulsion efficiency, an unusually wide range of specific impulses, from several hundred seconds, typical today of colloidal propulsion up to ...

  10. Thermally Remendable Composite Structures with Resistive Heating Network of Carbon Fibers

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: AF08BT11

    ABSTRACT: Carbon fiber-reinforced composites undergo subcritical damage well before final failure. A self-healing composite material is proposed that will autonomously sense and repair localized damage in composite structures. Healing is accomplished via two main components. The first component is a thermally remendable polymer matrix that is integrated into the structural carbon fiber composite ...
