  1. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    In this Phase I STTR program, ORBITEC and University of Wisconsin-Madison teamed to develop a simultaneous particle image velocimetry and thermometry (PIV+T) diagnostic for reacting flows. In applications such as gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, and rocket engines, the dynamics of the turbulent combustion necessitate measurement of both temperature and velocity fields to understa ...

  2. Optimized Electrodes for Low-Loss On-Chip Microwave Devices

    SBC: US Ferroics LLC            Topic: A09AT015

    The goal of this program is to develop a new sandwich electrode technology for low-loss microwave devices. The electrode consists of a thick high-conductivity layer sandwiched between two high-stability oxidization resistant thin cladding layers. The thick layer ensures low electrode resistance loss and limits radiation of energy from device to the substrate. The thin cladding layers protect th ...

  3. Nanomembrane Integrated Lasers on Silicon

    SBC: Semerane Inc.            Topic: AF08BT08

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this STTR Phase II proposal is to continue and complete the development of a commercially practical laser source on silicon (Si), with the demonstration of high performance ultra-compact electrically-pumped infrared laser prototype at 1550 nm band. Currently, silicon (Si)-based photonics are bottlenecked by the lack of an economical yet reliably integrated on-chip laser ...

  4. Shielded Cold Cathodes for High Power Magnetrons

    SBC: Stellar Micro Devices            Topic: AF08BT14

    ABSTRACT: This program will investigate cold cathode field emission arrays as electron source for high power magnetrons. The approach uses lateral edge type field emitters which inject electrons horizontally, just above the surface of the substrate. The electrons are extracted laterally by a gate and injected into a vacuum region below magnetron sole electrode, which serves as a shielding structu ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Detection of Explosive Materials Using an Encapsulated Fluorescent Bioprobe

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A06T025

    The use of explosives over the last 100 years has left up to 16,000 military ranges contaminated with highly toxic compounds. A major challenge to the remediation of these ranges is identifying the location of persistent explosives residues. To meet this challenge, Agave BioSystems in collaboration with Universities Space Research Agency (USRA) is developing an encapsulated fluorescent bioprobe ...

  8. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structure for Small UAVs

    SBC: GENEVA AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: AF05T019

    Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs) have demonstrated their value in military Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and Intelligence operations as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). While small UAVs have demonstrated their value in the warfighting environment, their size, weight, and power constraints limit their mission footprints to video surveillance or high band (GHz) communications. Lower ...

  9. Predictive Modeling/Control for Intersubband and Interband Quantum Devices Grown by MBE


    This Phase II STTR effort will demonstrate intersubband and interband quantum device modeling capability using UT-Dallas BandProf software package and optical coupling efficiency modeling using SMU optical cavity software packages. The software model will predict fabricated device characteristics based on data inputs from real-time in-situ growth monitoring and post-growth epi materials characteri ...

  10. Portable High Efficiency Electrochemical Cell for Hydrogen Peroxide Production

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A06T004

    The use of vaporous hydrogen peroxide (VHP) has been shown to be an effective and safe means of decontaminating sensitive equipment and enclosed areas including buildings, tanks, and aircraft that have been contaminated with chemical and biological agents. Currently, a viable means of producing on-site vaporous hydrogen peroxide (VHP) for decontamination does not exist, and high concentrations of ...
